  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson probable    Fri Oct 31, 06:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (rib) fully practiced Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9.

Footballguys view: Jackson made it through the trade deadline without a deal sending him to another team, but it's not clear whether that is a good thing for his fantasy stock. If he has another dud against the Browns, Jackson will be hard to trust in Week 10.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin doubtful for Week 9    Fri Oct 31, 01:25 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is doubtful for the team's Week 9 game.

Footballguys view: This could be the opening that rookie Charles Sims needs to take over in this backfield, but he still has to be activated for the game. If Sims isn't ready, then Bobby Rainey would become a solid RB2 play against a weak Browns run defense.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson limited in practice    Thu Oct 30, 06:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson was limited in practice again Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Drop expectations for Jackson. He has been underperforming for the Bucs, and now he's banged up. The team is talking about getting rookie WR Mike Evans more involved as well.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin doesn't practice    Thu Oct 30, 06:32 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims' status uncertain    Thu Oct 30, 03:59 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) is making progress, but it is not known if he will play in Week 9, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: If he plays, Sims makes for a risky fantasy start. We love his poor man's version of Matt Forte skill set, but we'd like to see him in action first before we recommend him as anything more than a 'what the heck' flex.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin sitting out    Thu Oct 30, 02:13 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Martin has been a disappointment this season. Charles Sims could be active this week for the first time all season, but he'll be splitting time with Bobby Rainey.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims to enter fold    Thu Oct 30, 10:08 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims could have 10 or more touches in Week 9, in the opinion of beat writer Greg Auman.

Footballguys view: We'd be cautious with starting him, as we really don't know his role yet and the offensive line has been brutal. Start him as a flex/RB4 this week if you have no other option. Dynasty owners should be enticed by his upside.

  Buccaneers | Limited practice for Vincent Jackson    Wed Oct 29, 07:47 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (rib) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: Jackson has failed to play up to expectations this year, and the Bucs are having a down season. We're hearing about the team getting Mike Evans more involved in the passing game, and we'll see if they want to get Jackson jump-started as well.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin in a boot    Wed Oct 29, 02:43 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) was in a walking boot and is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: It's Charles Sims time! err...maybe....and if he is active for the first time this year, the rookie is going to be splitting time with Bobby Rainey.

  Buccaneers | Sign Tavarres King to PS    Tue Oct 28, 05:25 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed free-agent WR Tavarres King (Jaguars) to their practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 28.

Footballguys view: King is a speedy receiver who can eat cushion quickly when a cornerback is playing off. He's struggled to latch on with two teams already in his short pro career. He's only a player fantasy owners should monitor in super super deep dynasty leagues.

  Buccaneers | Mark Barron traded for picks    Tue Oct 28, 04:14 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded SS Mark Barron to the St. Louis Rams for fourth and sixth-round round draft picks Tuesday, Oct. 28, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Buccaneers wash their hands of a high draft pick who just wasn't making plays. Their defense is bad enough with Barron, and we can't imagine them improving without him this year.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson stay    Tue Oct 28, 04:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin and WR Vincent Jackson were not traded as the NFL trade deadline passed Tuesday, Oct. 28, despite several rumors leading up to the deadline.

Footballguys view: Martin was damaged goods as he's been banged up since his fantastic rookie season in 2012. Jackson is a seasoned veteran, but the Bucs weren't able to move him before the trade deadline.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans may receive more work    Mon Oct 27, 04:20 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans could receive more targets moving forward, because head coach Lovie Smith said the team wants Evans to be more involved.

Footballguys view: It's a good idea for the team to involve Evans more. The big target has a large wingspan and can play above the rim. He'll help the team as a downfield target, and he's a strong presence in the red zone as well.

  Buccaneers | Mike Glennon to keep job    Mon Oct 27, 04:01 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon will remain the starting job even though head coach Lovie Smith said the team has two quarterbacks capable for starting.

Footballguys view: Phew! We were afraid that Smith would do something crazy and go back to Josh McCown. While Glennon has not played the best, he's still a better option to start than McCown.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin considered expendable    Sun Oct 26, 10:22 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are fielding offers for RB Doug Martin, and are more likely to deal him than WR Vincent Jackson, according to sources. Teams have approached the team about Martin, who could be had at the right price. He is believed to be expendable with RB Charles Sims eligible to come off the injured-reserve designated-to-return list.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin injures ankle    Sun Oct 26, 03:15 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 8 and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Martin was supposedly on the trade block, but this will throw a monkeywrench into the Bucs plans to trade him. Rookie Charles Sims should get a long look in the backfield when he is ready, but it is still the Bucs offense, so don't get too excited.

  Buccaneers | Bucs want a lot for Vincent Jackson    Sun Oct 26, 12:15 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson likely would cost an interested team a second-round draft choice if they wanted to acquire him in a trade before the trade deadline, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bucs have gotten two plus good years out of Jackson and their money's worth, but in the middle of yet another rebuild, it might be better to go back to the drawing board with a very similar talent in Mike Evans just taken in the first round this year.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin attracting interest    Sun Oct 26, 10:39 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is a player opposing teams have inquired about.

Footballguys view: The new regime has nothing invested in Martin and might prefer rookie Charles Sims once he is healthy enough to play - maybe even next week. Martin could help a team like New England, Buffalo, or Miami who already lost a key part of their backfield this year.

  Buccaneers | Gerald McCoy receives new deal    Sat Oct 25, 12:55 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy has agreed to terms with the team on a seven-year contract extension worth close to $100 million.

Footballguys view: McCoy is a dominant player when healthy. He struggled with injuries when he first came out of Oklahoma as the number three overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft. Over the last two years, McCoy has become one of the best interior defensive linemen in the league. He's a hard worker, and McCoy is well worth the hefty contract the Bucs rewarded him with.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson wants to stay    Thu Oct 23, 06:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson, who has been the subject of trade rumors lately, said he prefers to remain with the team. 'In this business, those kinds of things get talked about quite often. Each and every year, there's going to be guys moved around to different teams,' Jackson said. 'I'm not surprised by it. Obviously I appreciate teams' interest, but I'm happy here in Tampa. I've heard nothing here that would suggest I'm going anywhere. I'm going to let that pass on and keep doing my job.' Jackson leads the team in with 25 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns this year.

Footballguys view: There were rumors swirling that Jackson was on the trade block. Never say never, but the Bucs would be wise to keep their best offensive asset around....unless they get a deal they can't refuse.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay QB decision not made yet    Wed Oct 22, 03:45 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QBs Josh McCown and Mike Glennon are waiting to see who will be starting Week 8. Head coach Lovie Smith said he will see how they do this week before making a decision.

Footballguys view: For the love of all things that are holy, why in the world would McCown even be considered as a starter? Glennon has looked bad at times this year, but he's certainly looked better than what McCown showed earlier this season. We hope--and assume rational coaching here, but in the NFL you just never know.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but will not be added to the roster until he is activated from the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Sims is an interesting name to keep an eye on in deeper leagues. Dynasty owners are certainly interested in seeing what he can do. Sims has a skill set similar to that of a poor man's version of Matt Forte. When he's active, the Bucs could choose to mix him in if Doug Martin and Bobby Rainey are struggling.
