  Buccaneers | Doug Martin says he's the same runner    Tue Nov 25, 04:27 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin says he's the same running back he was as a rookie in 2012 when he took the league by storm. However, he's averaging just 2.8 yards per carry and has only 193 rushing yards and one score this season, but he's missed two games with a knee injury and three with an ankle ailment. He's healthy now, but he only mustered 27 yards on 11 carries in Week 12 while sharing time with RBs Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey.

Footballguys view: He's not the same runner. Martin was a star as a rookie in 2012 when he rushed for nearly 1,500 yards. He also showed his versatility with 49 catches out of the backfield that year too. Fantasy owners should be avoiding the Tampa backfield if at all possible.

  Buccaneers | Lovie Smith calls out O-line    Mon Nov 24, 07:43 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said the team's offensive line needs to do a better job after they rushed for a total of 66 yards in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. Smith also said the team's pass blocking wasn't at its best. 'A defense can tee off on you once you can't run the football,' Smith said. 'We talk an awful lot about being a balanced attack. But when you can't run it consistently that hurts. Believe me, we don't want to be a team that's passing the ball that much.'

Footballguys view: We agree with Lovie here. The Bucs offensive line is brutally bad, and they're not creating much rushing room for any of the backs on the roster. Until that changes, we only consider guys like Doug Martin or Charles Sims as 'what the heck' flex plays.

  Buccaneers | Jorvorskie Lane to have surgery    Mon Nov 24, 07:39 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers FB Jorvorskie Lane (ankle) will have surgery on his broken right ankle Tuesday, Nov. 25, and he'll miss the rest of the year. Lane is unsure how long he'll take to recover.

Footballguys view: The Buccaneers are left without a true fullback, and they'll likely sign one. TE Luke Stocker has served as a fullback at times.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin quiet in return    Sun Nov 23, 10:17 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) returned to the lineup in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. He carried 11 times for 27 yards. He was sidelined for the past three games due to an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: The bottom line here is that you have to be in very very deep league to make any Tampa running back worth owning.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans into end zone again    Sun Nov 23, 09:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had three receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. He has now scored at least one touchdown in four consecutive games.

Footballguys view: Evans wasn't dominant like he was the last three weeks, but he started with a score to establish a high floor for the day. He is impossible to bench heading into Week 13's game at Cincinnati/

  Buccaneers | Lavonte David out Sunday    Sun Nov 23, 10:51 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (hamstring) will miss the first game of his career Sunday, Nov. 23, as he's out for Week 12.

Footballguys view: David being out will make the Bears life easier today. Matt Forte and Martellus Bennett both benefit, but the whole Bucs defense will be more stressed with their best player out.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin takes most reps    Sat Nov 22, 05:02 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) took most of the first-team repetitions in practice Friday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: He might be questionable, but it appears as if in this case "questionable" means "probably going." Martin has a shot to take his role back as both Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey have been unimpressive. Of course, so was Martin pre-injury. The offensive line will keep killing this run game - nobody is better than an RB3 and we'd stay away this week and see if we get more clarity.

   Buccaneers | Doug Martin questionable    Fri Nov 21, 05:38 PM

Tamp Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) was limited in practice and is questionable for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Martin could play but at best is one-third of an RBBC, and not the bigger third, either. His time seems to have come and gone in Tampa under this new regime.

  Buccaneers | Friday practice report for Week 12    Fri Nov 21, 05:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is questionable. RB Charles Sims (ankle) and CB Alterraun Verner (hamstring) both were limited in practice and are questionable.

Footballguys view: David is an uberstud LB in IDP leagues and his absence would be felt by many fantasy teams making a playoff push.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin, Charles Sims limited    Thu Nov 20, 05:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Doug Martin (ankle) and Charles Sims (ankle) were both limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Sims is the only one of these two worth anything, but even he is only going to give you RB3 numbers at best. This ground game is too problematic to rely on.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims emerges as lead back    Mon Nov 17, 10:17 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims emerged with a team-high 13 carries and 36 yards rushing in Week 11. RB Bobby Rainey started the game, but Sims took over the bulk of the work after the first series. Sims caught three passes and ran in short-yardage situations as well.

Footballguys view: It wouldn't surprise us to see Sims start the next game. The rookie has a fine all-purpose skill set, but he didn't do a whole lot in Week 11 with an expanded role. In certain matchups, we'd consider him a flex play.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans has giant stat line    Sun Nov 16, 07:05 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with 209 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 11 against the Washington Redskins. He is the first rookie since Randy Moss in 1998 to post three straight 100-yard receiving games. He is also the first rookie with 200 yards receiving and two touchdowns in a game since Anquan Boldin in 2003. Evans finished seven yards shy of Vincent Jackson's franchise record of 216 yards.

Footballguys view: Evans is just one of the cavalcade of rookie WRs who are leading their fantasy teams to victories. He is a great bet to keep this hot streak going against the Bears, who were struggling on defense until Teddy Bridgewater fizzled out against them today.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have declared CB Alterraun Verner, CB C.J. X. Wilson, DL Da'Quan Bowers, RB Doug Martin, OT Kevin Pamphile, TE Luke Stocker, WR Robert Herron inactive for Week 11.

Footballguys view: Verner being out makes the already weak Bucs secondary more vulnerable to Robert Griffin III and company today.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims may see more time    Sun Nov 16, 10:28 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is expected to receive more playing time in Week 11 than he did in Week 10.

Footballguys view: It's still hard to trust any Bucs back as long as they are in a committee on a team that has trouble generating consistent production on offense, but it should give Sims a chance to prove he's worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues for the stretch run.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims' role to gradually increase    Wed Nov 12, 10:02 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims' role is expected to gradually increase as long as fumbles don't be come an issue. RB Bobby Rainey was better at catching passes in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Sims has a skill set similar to that of a poor man's version of Matt Forte. We're intrigued by his upside, but the RB/OL situation in Tampa is pretty ugly right now. Sims is nothing but a desperation 'what the heck' flex against Washington in Week 11.
