  Buccaneers | More touches for Charles Sims?    Wed Jun 22, 02:05 AM

  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate a red zone weapon    Fri Jun 17, 12:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate emerged as a favorite target of QB Jameis Winston last year, and head coach Dirk Koetter has been impressed with the tight end in the red zone this offseason. Brate caught 23 passes for 288 yards last year and scored three touchdowns when TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was injured. Brate will battle with Seferian-Jenkins for a starting position in training camp.

Footballguys view: Brate is a player fantasy owners in deeper leagues need to take note of. Seferian-Jenkins has been banged up as a pro, and Brate has the ability to make plays if he gets a larger role.

  Buccaneers | Kenny Bell fighting for roster spot?    Fri Jun 10, 09:18 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell has looked healthy and sharp in OTAs, but beat writer Greg Auman believes Bell still isn't a lock to make the final roster.

Footballguys view: Bell has the speed to get by defenders quickly. He does a good job of winning at the point of the catch, and Bell can make contested catches look easy. Bell is not a great route-runner, and he needs to show the ability to create separation if he wants to play up to his potential as a pro.

  Buccaneers | Seferian-Jenkins dismissed from practice    Thu Jun 9, 01:04 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was dismissed from practice by head coach Dirk Koetter Thursday, June 9.

Footballguys view: There's a lot swirling around here as Seferian-Jenkins tweeted out (then deleted) MOVING ON, later replacing it with a tweet that he won't let the negative stuff get to him. Rumor later had it that coach Dirk Koetter was annoyed that Seferian-Jenkins seemed lost on the field. If he can get it together we think he should put up decent TE2 numbers this year, but this is worth monitoring.

  Buccaneers | Dez Stewart waived by Tampa Bay    Wed Jun 8, 06:21 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Dez Stewart (undisclosed) was waived/injured from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, June 8.


  Buccaneers | Roberto Aguayo signs deal    Tue Jun 7, 02:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Roberto Aguayo, the team's second-round pick, signed his four-year contract Tuesday, June 7. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Bucs took Aguayo in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft. Even if you're a family member of Aguayo, don't take him in the second round of your fantasy drafts. At least one of you won't be making a mistake.

  Buccaneers | Storm Johnson ready to silence doubters    Sun Jun 5, 11:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Storm Johnson said he isn't taking his opportunity with the Buccaneers lightly, and he said being cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars has only fueled his fire for the game.

Footballguys view: Johnson is fired up, but fantasy owners can look elsewhere for sleeper RBs this year. He's a jack-of-all-trades RB, and he can be effectively used as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. However, Johnson lacks the juice/explosion/electricity needed to be dangerous in those areas of his game. He'll compete with guys like Mike James and rookie Peyton Barber for the RB3 spot behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans worked with Jamies Winston    Sun May 29, 03:10 PM

Tamp Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and QB Jameis Winston have worked through countless routes together and have spent time with each other both on and off the field this offseason. Evans has been invited by Winston several times to break down film. Evans said he hasn't yet seen a work ethic like Winston's.

Footballguys view: We love what this combination could be for the Bucs for years to come. Winston has high upside as a starter in the league, and it seems like he's going to do everything in his power to play up to his potential. Working closely with Evans makes a lot of sense for the young passer. Evans only scored three TDs last year after scoring 12 times as a rookie in 2014. Look for him to bounce back this season and end up as a top-12 fantasy WR.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston talks up Kenny Bell    Tue May 24, 03:54 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell gives the Buccaneers a big-play threat who can stretch the field, according to QB Jameis Winston. Winston expects big things from Bell in 2016.

Footballguys view: Our very own Matt Waldman was high on Bell last year with the talented WR came out of Nebraska. Bell was a fifth-round pick of the Bucs last year in the draft, but he missed his rookie season after a preseason hamstring injury knocked him out for the year. He didn't have any receptions in two preseason games, but know that Bell's natural talent could come through this year and beyond. He's a competitive player who can make difficult catches seem routine. He'll be the Bucs WR3 this year behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson.

  Buccaneers | Luke Stocker important to Tampa Bay    Sat May 21, 03:14 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Luke Stocker is considered an invaluable part of the Buccaneers' offense, according to tight ends coach Jon Embree. 'He's a great pass protector, he's a good run blocker and he can be a threat in the passing game,' Embree said. 'He knows what everyone is supposed to do. There were a lot of times last year where he made things right. Maybe a play wasn't called right, or a formation, but he knew what was supposed to be done and he got it done.'

Footballguys view: Stocker is third in the pecking order on the Bucs depth chart at TE behind Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Cameron Brate. From a fantasy lens, he's got little value as the other two are likely to be the primary pass-catchers at the position while Stocker is mainly used for blocking.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston can improve    Fri May 20, 06:13 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston can improve on his technique and accuracy because he completed only 58.3% of his passes in 2015, according to quarterback coach Mike Bajakian.

Footballguys view: We love Winston and know that of course he can improve. His pass-placement is an issue as Winston needs to better lead his receivers to improve yards after the catch. We'll see if Winston can take strides to being a better QB in his sophomore season with the Bucs.

  Buccaneers | OC had questions about Jameis Winston    Fri May 20, 05:56 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken said he was not a big fan of QB Jameis Winston when he entered the NFL, but his opinion has changed after working with him this offseason. Monken said the passing game needs to improve under Winston because it was inconsistent in 2015. 'I think from the outside you would've looked at it with all the things that were publicized in the past about him and who he is. I was dead wrong. He wants to win as much as we do. He's a competitive joker, man, he's smart, he's intelligent ... you can win a lot of games with guys like that,' Monken said.

Footballguys view: Winston has high football character and IQ and he clearly already has the Bucs behind him, even down to the coaches. He should take a step forward in his second year if his receivers and tight ends can stay healthy, and he has also been reunited with his college kicker Roberto Aguayo after vouching for him before the Bucs traded back up into the second round to get him.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Davon Coleman was waived Tuesday, May 17.


  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber could land roster spot    Sun May 15, 09:35 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber could crack the 53-man roster because of his low salary, and RB Mike James' limited impact the past three seasons. Barber was a coveted priority free agent and was lured to Tampa Bay because of thin depth at running back, and he received several repetitions during the Bucs limited full-team scrimmage sessions last week.

Footballguys view: We are big Barber fans, partly because of his story off the field. He decided to enter the NFL draft after only starting nine games in his college career at Auburn. Barber chose to turn pro because his mother is homeless, and he wanted to help her get back on her feet. Barber rushed for 1,017 yards and scored 13 touchdowns in 2015 for Auburn.

  Buccaneers | Dez Stewart goes to IR    Thu May 12, 05:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Dez Stewart (undisclosed) reverted to the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, May 12, after being waived/injured Wednesday, May 11.


  Buccaneers | Kenny Bell could stretch the field    Thu May 12, 02:38 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell is a player the team hopes can serve as their speed receiver. Bell ran a 4.37-second 40-yard dash but missed all last season with a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Bell did nothing of note in his rookie season, so anything would be an upgrade at this point. With Vincent Jackson aging, there is room to make an impact so he's worth keeping an eye on - though that's about all right now.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Vernon Hargreaves III signed his rookie contract Friday, May 6.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay likes Noah Spence    Thu Apr 28, 05:12 PM

Eastern Kentucky LB Noah Spence would be coveted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if he is still available when they pick in the second round. The Buccaneers hold the eighth pick in the second round -- 39th overall.

Footballguys view: Anything can happen, but we expect him to be gone by then. Several teams are interested in grabbing him in the first round, including the Jets, Bills and Vikings. If the Bucs want him, they need to grab him in the first, but ninth overall pick seems a tad rich.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WRs Donteea Dye and Adam Humphries will get a chance for work in the slot during spring practices, along with WR Kenny Bell.

Footballguys view: Slot receiver could be a productive role for fantasy purposes in Tampa this year. Whomever gets the nod is someone worth keeping an eye on for a WR3 or WR4 in a PPR league.

  Buccaneers | Kenny Bell ready to make plays    Thu Apr 28, 01:34 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell (hamstring) spent the 2015 season, his rookie year, on the Reserve/Injured list due to a hamstring injury, but he stayed connected with the team while the coaching staff made a point to keep him involved in the day-to-day activity, even taking him on every road trip despite his being out. Bell is expected to compete with WRs Donteea Dye and Adam Humphries for slot duties during the spring.

Footballguys view: We don't know what Vincent Jackson will be capable of this year after an injury shortened year, and if Mike Evans can keep up the yardage production while adding more touchdowns so there is certainly room for Bell to make some impact.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston loses weight    Tue Apr 26, 02:38 PM

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has put in work to enter the 2016 season in much better shape, and his teammates were impressed with the results during voluntary minicamp Tuesday, April 26. Winston's trainer, Tim Grover, said Winston lost 18 pounds since last year. 'I was joking with him the other day. He took his shirt off, and I said 'Man, what happened to the belly?' He's got a six-pack like me. He's put in a tremendous amount of work and I think it's going to be a great year for him and this whole team,' WR Mike Evans said.

Footballguys view: Winston was always a little "doughy" during his time in college and even last year as a rookie in the NFL. Getting him in better shape shows a dedication to being the best pro he can be. We're excited to see what Winston does in year two.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay works out Dan Vitale    Wed Apr 20, 07:55 AM

Northwestern FB Dan Vitale worked out with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently. The team may have an eye on Vitale as a late-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: A tough player who isn't quite big enough to be a traditional lead blocker, but whose toolbox is filled with enough things to be of use to an offense looking for flexibility. His pass-catching ability, route running and ability to block well despite his size will make some coach who also needs a special teams guy give Vitale a shot.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans acknowledges slump    Mon Apr 11, 04:38 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said it's fair to say he had a sophomore slump last season, adding that he need s to get back to his fundamentals.

Footballguys view: Evans had more catches and yards during his second season, but his TD total fell from 12 to three. Touchdowns are unpredictable, but we think he should be able to post at least 6-8 TD receptions in 2016. Evans could get double-digit TD numbers again if he and QB Jameis Winston establish a better on-field chemistry.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Griffin has a chance to be an ascending player at quarterback, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. Griffin would take over as the No. 2 quarterback in Tampa Bay if QB Mike Glennon is traded.

Footballguys view: Griffin certainly has potential as a pocket passer and reserve behind Jameis Winston. The Bucs are flirting with the idea of trading away Mike Glennon. He could be dealt as the young passer is likely to move on for a chance to start as an unrestricted free agent next year.
