Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bruce Anderson did not record a carry in his preseason debut, and he failed to catch his only target in a 30-28 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Anderson is on the outside looking in for a roster spot even though he was one the top rated undrafted backs in draft analysts circles.

  Buccaneers | Ronald Jones shows improvement    Fri Aug 9, 11:38 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed four times for 18 yards in a 30-28 preseason loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, Aug. 9, after gaining 22 yards on a total of 28 carries as a rookie during last year's preseason.

Footballguys view: Jones is still likely in a committee no matter how well he performs this summer. He has rehabilitated his career arc to some extent, but might still have minimal fantasy relevance if the Bucs use Peyton Barber and a passing down back.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Vita Vea (knee) underwent an MRI on his injured knee Friday, Aug. 9, and sources said no surgery will be required. Vea should be able to return within the first four weeks of the regular season. .

Footballguys view: Vea has had trouble staying healthy and his injury will delay the debut of the Bucs defensive line with him and Ndamukong Suh anchoring the inside. This helps Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers in Week 1.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber to receive start    Wed Aug 7, 06:43 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber will be the starting running back in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, but head coach Bruce Arians said he would also like to see RB Ronald Jones play with the first-team offensive line.

Footballguys view: Watch this battle as training camp unfolds. The team is looking at Barber and Jones to see who can come out as the starter. Barber has the experience and is a well-rounded back but Jones has electricity and excitement to his game. Jones had a down rookie season in 2018 and is looking to bounce back. We'll see how this shakes out as August rolls on.

  Buccaneers | Ronald Jones to see more targets?    Wed Aug 7, 01:55 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones could be more involved in the passing game if QB Jameis Winston sticks to his plan to check the ball down more this season. 'But sometimes checking that ball down is the simple decision,' Winston said.

Footballguys view: Jones had a bad rookie season in 2018. He's competing with Peyton Barber for the top spot in the backfield this season. Perhaps getting used more as a receiver could get him on the field more.

  Buccaneers | Safer approach for Jameis Winston?    Wed Aug 7, 01:47 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he plans to check the ball down more this season. 'It's about moving the chains,' Winston said. 'It's about a completion here and a completion there.'

Footballguys view: That's an interesting take considering Bruce Arians is his head coach. Arians loves to throw deep...like Winston...but it sounds like maybe they'll pick and choose when to take those type of shots. We're excited about the combination and see Winston as a QB2 with upside in 2019. Winston has a current ADP of QB13 (10.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Buccaneers | Lavonte David has surgery    Mon Aug 5, 11:37 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (knee) had surgery to address a torn meniscus in his left knee Monday, Aug. 5, but he's not in danger of missing the regular season opener.

Footballguys view: This wasn't just irritation from playing on turf. David could be less than 100% for an opener against the 49ers and then the Bucs play on a Thursday against the Panthers, so David's ability to be ready for two games in quick succession will be tested. The Bucs defense can't afford to lose anyone else.

  Buccaneers | Lavonte David not on field    Sat Aug 3, 07:15 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (undisclosed) is not practicing for the second consecutive day Saturday, Aug. 3. Head coach Bruce Arians said David is dealing with some swelling but did not disclose the specific injury.

Footballguys view: It was later disclosed as knee swelling and chalked up to the turf. We'll watch this as the Bucs are already in the bottom 5-10 in defenses. They can't afford any losses to an already compromised defense.

  Buccaneers | Offense clicking for Jameis Winston     Fri Aug 2, 09:30 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has shown 'consistency' and a good grasp of the offense during training camp, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Winston is in a make-or-break season with the Bucs...but he's got Arians to guide him. We'll be curious to see how Winston works with Arians because on paper and in practice it sounds/looks great. Arians loves to throw deep and so does Winston. That could be great news for Winston but also guys like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in 2019.

  Buccaneers | Dare Ogunbowale impressing    Fri Aug 2, 09:46 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Dare Ogunbowale has impressed the team in training camp with his vision and blitz pickup. He has had some good inside runs and is key on special teams.

Footballguys view: Ogunbowale or Andre Ellington will get some passing down work for the Bucs, turning this into a likely three-man backfield. It's tough see any Bucs back making a big difference in fantasy leagues unless one gets the vast majority of early-down touches.

  Buccaneers | Ronald Jones popping    Thu Aug 1, 11:14 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones will be a 'happening player' in 2019, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'He's an explosive player,' Arians said. 'He's going to make big plays like that.'

Footballguys view: Jones is more worthy of a pick in fantasy drafts than Peyton Barber on potential alone, but if both backs play significant roles, neither will be a consistent fantasy contributor.
