  Buccaneers | Kendell Beckwith won't return this season    Mon Nov 19, 10:14 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Kendell Beckwith (ankle) will not return from the NFL's Reserve/Non-Football Injury (NFI) list, but he will be placed on the season-ending Reserve/Injured list instead. 'We're not going to be able to activate Kendell,' head coach Dirk Koetter said Monday, Nov. 19. 'Kendell's not going to be ready.'

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston expected to start Week 12    Mon Nov 19, 03:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will reportedly be named the starting quarterback for Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Winston came into the game on Sunday and rallied the Buccaneers in a loss to the Giants. He has QB1 upside for Fantasy GMs provided you don't get dinged too heavily for interceptions/turnovers.

  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard seeks second opinion    Mon Nov 19, 03:22 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) reportedly received some 'good news' on his ankle injury Monday, Nov. 19, but will seek a second opinion.

Footballguys view: Howard's status for Sunday's game is up in the air. We'll see if he can practice later in the week as the team prepares for a Week 12 home game against the 49ers.

  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard injures ankle    Sun Nov 18, 08:28 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the fourth quarter of a 38-35 loss to the New York Giants in Week 11. He had five catches on six targets for 78 yards before exiting.

Footballguys view: Cameron Brate will have some streamer consideration against San Francisco and for any game that Howard is out going forward. If this is a high ankle sprain as feared it will likely be a multi-week absence for Howard.

  Buccaneers | Adam Humphries scores in loss    Sun Nov 18, 08:25 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries caught three of his five targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in a 38-35 loss to the New York Giants in Week 11.

Footballguys view: OJ Howard might miss some time and DeSean Jackson has a thumb injury, so Humphries might deserve more consideration in deeper leagues heading into a matchup with the 49ers.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans over 100 yards    Sun Nov 18, 08:20 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught six of his seven targets for 120 yards and a touchdown in a 38-35 loss to the New York Giants in Week 11.

Footballguys view: Evans came alive with a long score from Jameis Winston and seems to get a boost from the new quarterback no matter who it is. He had a few down weeks, but bounced back in time for a matchup with Richard Sherman next week.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston shines in relief    Sun Nov 18, 08:13 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston replaced QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in the Week 11 game against the New York Giants and completed 12 of his 16 passes for 199 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 38-35 loss.

Footballguys view: "Tampa Quarterback" had another strong game, and it should be Winston's job going into a matchup against the 49ers. With OJ Howard banged up, Cameron Brate is better situated to rekindle the chemistry between the two of them.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber tops 100 yards    Sun Nov 18, 08:08 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 18 times for 106 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for four yards in a 38-35 loss to the New York Giants in Week 11.

Footballguys view: The Giants have given up a running back touchdown in every game this year and Barber is running as strong as he has all year. He'll get some flex consideration against the 49ers next week and Josh Adams might be the Eagles back to continue the scoring streak against the Giants.

  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard out of the game    Sun Nov 18, 03:44 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 11 game and is considered doubtful to return.

Footballguys view: It might be a multi-week high ankle sprain for Howard. Next week against the 49ers seems like a stretch but Howard came back in the early end of his knee injury timeframe earlier this year and looked good. Don't drop him yet, but Cameron Brate is certainly worth a look as an add if you need a tight end.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson suffers injury    Sun Nov 18, 03:00 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (thumb) suffered a thumb injury during the Week 11 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Jackson hasn't riffed with Jameis Winston in the deep game, and didn't do much once Winston was in. He returned to the game. With OJ Howard nursing an ankle sprain, decisions with your Bucs pass catchers could be easier next week against the 49ers.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick benched in third quarter    Sun Nov 18, 02:55 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched in the third quarter of the Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 18, after throwing his third interception of the contest. He was replaced by Jameis Winston.

Footballguys view: Fitzmagic VII the sequel is over. The Bucs have had to bench two different quarterbacks this year. Maybe we'll see Ryan Griffin before the end of the season. Winston will be a hot waiver wire pickup this week, but his leash is also short.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin likely to play    Sun Nov 18, 09:09 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (ankle) is expected to play in Week 11's game against the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Godwin is a low ceiling play and now with a low floor due to this ankle issue. The Giants matchup is a good one, so break ties in favor of Godwin unless we hear something concerning this morning.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber limited    Thu Nov 15, 04:21 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 15.

Footballguys view: Barber is the lead back for the Buccaneers but not an exciting fantasy option. We see him as a RB3 or flex play in PPR leagues this week against the Giants.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin misses practice    Thu Nov 15, 01:34 PM

Tampa Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (ankle) was absent from practice for a second straight day Thursday, Nov. 15.

Footballguys view: Right now Godwin is questionable at best. He's not a veteran who can be relied on with minimal practice time, so we must assume that his injury is not trivial. If he can't go, Adam Humphries and OJ Howard become better plays.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber (ankle, shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.

  Buccaneers | Dare Ogunbowale promoted    Tue Nov 13, 08:19 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Dare Ogunbowale was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday, Nov. 13.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Wisconsin in 2017, Ogunbowale is a good receiver out of the backfield. Measuring in at 5'11" 205 pounds he's also a bit underrated as a runner. He'll compete for snaps behind Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers on the Bucs active roster. Rookie Ronald Jones is considered week-to-week with a hamstring injury.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Fitzpatrick to start again in Week 11    Mon Nov 12, 02:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback in Week 11, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: This decision may come down to one thing; money. The Buccaneers don't want to risk an injury to Jameis Winston if he's back in the starting lineup. His 2019 fifth-year option is guaranteed only for injury, so they'd be on the hook for around $20 million if Winston was banged up heading into next year. We expect Fitzpatrick to remain the starter unless he's absolutely awful.
