  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate limited in practice Thursday    Thu Dec 14, 06:55 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Brate has been well and truly replaced by rookie OJ Howard. Despite his two touchdowns against Green Bay in Week 13, he seems an afterthought in this offense.

  Buccaneers | Gerald McCoy hoping to play through injury    Wed Dec 13, 09:32 AM

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (biceps) is hoping to play through his biceps injury.

Footballguys view: McCoy played most of last week with one arm. Doing that going forward does not bode well for his quality of play. McCoy injured this same bicep back in 2011, so the team should be cautious so there's no further damage to him.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Riley Bullough was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday, Dec. 12.

  Buccaneers | Gerald McCoy's season could be over    Mon Dec 11, 08:04 AM

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (biceps) believes he suffered a torn biceps, which would end his season.

Footballguys view: Having gone through two biceps tears before, McCoy should know what the injury feels like. The Buccaneers don't have a ton of talent up front outside of McCoy and are likely going to be without him over the remainder of the regular season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (biceps, shoulder) suffered a shoulder/biceps injury in Week 14 and is considered doubtful to return.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin starting in Week 14    Sun Dec 10, 10:41 AM

Confirming a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) will start Week 14's game against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Martin still can't be trusted despite the starting role and good matchup. Peyton Barber could outperform him again and change this situation as the game goes on, and Martin has done little to nothing for us so far this year in similarly good matchups.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin likely to start Week 14    Fri Dec 8, 02:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) is expected to rejoin the starting lineup in Week 14, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

Footballguys view: Peyton Barber had the best game of any Bucs running back this year, but apparently it wasn't enough to win the starting job. He's still a priority dynasty add and perhaps even someone to hold in redraft to see if he can get the job before the end of the season.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin also a full participant    Thu Dec 7, 04:45 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and fully practiced Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: We're not sure what to expect from Martin this week, and will continue to monitor him on Friday. Peyton Barber looked much better than Martin has at any time this year, so we think Martin will still take a back seat to him, holding his production down enough to where we wouldn't risk him in our starting lineup.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston has full practice    Thu Dec 7, 04:41 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) was full go in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: Winston was pretty effective against Green Bay and should be solid against Detroit this week. He should put up some solid QB2 numbers this week as he continues to get back into a groove post injury.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin practices in full    Wed Dec 6, 05:51 PM

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: Martin has to practice in order to get through the protocol. We'll see if he has any setbacks after going through practice on Wednesday. Martin could play in Week 14 and that would negatively impact the fantasy potential of Peyton Barber in the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, Dec. 6, for the first time since he suffered a concussion against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Martin has to return to practice to get through the concussion protocol. Peyton Barber looked better than Martin had this year, so perhaps the Bucs go RBBC if Martin is able to play.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans silent in Week 13    Sun Dec 3, 06:59 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was limited to two grabs for 33 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Evans came up small as Jameis Winston was able to find ten different receivers today. He hasn't had any huge outburst games this year and should draw Darius Slay next week against the Lions.

  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate scores pair of TDs    Sun Dec 3, 06:55 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate stepped up with 39 receiving yards and two touchdowns on his only two catches in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Jameis Winston clearly favors Brate over any other Bucs receiver in the red zone. His return has made Brate a streaming consideration again.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber tops century mark    Sun Dec 3, 06:54 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber stepped up with 23 rushes and 102 yards in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Barber made the most of chance to start this week. He looked better and stronger than Doug Martin has at any time this year, and in a week that the Bucs were missing two starting and one backup offensive lineman. He'll be an RB2 consideration against the Lions next week unless the Bucs foolishly re-install Martin as the starter.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston tosses two TDs    Sun Dec 3, 06:54 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 21 of his 32 pass attempts for 270 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers. He also lost a fumble which was scooped up for a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Winston was an efficient passer, finding ten different receivers in his first week back from a shoulder injury. He'll be in streaming quarterback consideration against the Lions next week.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have declared DL Clinton McDonald, RB Doug Martin, C Joe Hawley, CB Joshua Robinson, DL Robert Ayers, FS T.J. Ward, CB Vernon Hargreaves III inactive for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Jacquizz Rodgers, Charles Sims, and Peyton Barber will split the work in the backfield with Martin out. The offensive line is missing two starters, and the backup center, Hawley, will force them to stretch their depth even further.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) is listed as questionable to face the Green Bay Packers in Week 13, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Jackson is still a dicey play with the Bucs offensive line depleted and Jameis Winston coming back from a multi-week layoff.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers C Joe Hawley (illness) has been added to the team's Week 13 injury report because of an illness and is listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are already without arguably their two best starters on the offensive line, including Ali Marpet, who Hawley is supposed to replace on Sunday. The Bucs are getting Jameis Winston back, but he'll line up behind a weakened offensive line.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) was able to practice in full Friday, Dec. 1, and he is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Winston is still a risky play despite a good matchup at Green Bay. He wasn't playing well before his injury. If he plays well on your bench this week, good matchups against Detroit and Atlanta lie ahead.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) was listed as limited for practice Friday, Dec. 1, and he is considered questionable for Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Brate was going to get a tick up in value with Jameis Winston's return, but if he isn't 100 percent he isn't worth the risk after his dropoff and OJ Howard's emergence while Winston was out.
