  Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers dealing with flu    Wed Sep 20, 09:50 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (illness) started in Week 2 despite batting with the flu.

Footballguys view: Watch Rodgers during the week of practice to monitor his participation. Doug Martin is still suspended for two more games, so Rodgers remains as the primary back for the Buccaneers. That makes him a RB2/flex option for fantasy owners in all formats.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson finishes with 39 yards    Sun Sep 17, 05:12 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught three passes for 39 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Jackson wasn't a big play, but in weeks when the Bucs throw more than 30 times to keep up with a better opposing offense, he'll have a high ceiling. Next week he faces the Vikings, who allowed a nice day to deep threat Martavis Bryant today.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans plays well in Week 2    Sun Sep 17, 05:04 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 93 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Evans was the focus of the passing game on a day that Jameis Winston didn't have to do much to deliver the win. He has to go on the road to face a strong Vikings defense next week. He's worth every bit of the first-round pick he cost so far this year.

  Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers reaches end zone    Sun Sep 17, 04:57 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 67 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Rodgers didn't fare much better than Devonta Freeman did last week against the underrated Bears front seven, but the Bucs controlled the game and gave him scoring opportunities. He'll be a flex play against the Vikings next week.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston throws for 204 yards    Sun Sep 17, 04:39 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 18-for-30 for 204 yards and one touchdown against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Winston barely had to break a sweat as Bears turnovers helped the Bucs offense with short fields and extra points from the Bucs defense. He has a tougher game next week at Minnesota.

  Buccaneers | Kwon Alexander injured    Sun Sep 17, 02:06 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Kwon Alexander (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 2 and is considered doubtful to return.

Footballguys view: Alexander was questionable going into this one with an illness, so that could have affected his play. The Bucs have this one comfortable in hand and will err on the side of caution.

  Buccaneers | Sefo Liufau cut from IR    Fri Sep 8, 07:28 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Sefo Liufau (undisclosed) was waived from the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Sept. 8, after he received an injury settlement.


  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay to use RBBC without Doug Martin    Fri Sep 8, 01:43 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers will most likely be the first- and second- down back, while Charles Sims will handle most of the third-down work and Peyton Barber will be the goal-line back while Doug Martin serves his season-opening three-game suspension, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.

Footballguys view: If Barber is the goal line back, that takes some luster off of Rodgers as a first three weeks RB2/Flex play, although next weeks matchup against the Bears should at least be flexworthy. Week 4 against the Giants is a much tougher draw for Rodgers and the Bucs running game.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin now returning Week 5    Wed Sep 6, 09:47 AM

Updating an earlier report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin will now be eligible to return from suspension in Week 5 after the team's Week 1 game was pushed to Week 11 due to Hurricane Irma.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners have to wait just a bit longer for Martin to return. When he does, Martin should put up RB1 numbers for the Bucs. In the meantime, Jacquizz Rodgers leads the way in the Bucs backfield.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay hosts Trevor Knight    Tue Sep 5, 07:56 PM

Free-agent QB Trevor Knight (Cardinals) worked out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tuesday, Sept. 5.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Texas A&M this year, Knight is a running quarterback with the athleticism to run zone-read looks. He's not accurate as a passer and has little upside for fantasy owners...even those in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Buccaneers | TB expected to sign T.J. Ward    Sun Sep 3, 08:20 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to sign free-agent FS T.J. Ward (Broncos), according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. One of the reasons Ward was let go by Denver was because he was scheduled to make $4.5 million in non-guaranteed money during the final year of his contract.

Footballguys view: Ward is an upgrade to their already strong defense. He remains very relevant in IDP leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list Saturday, Sept. 2.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan W. Griffin signed a one-year extension through the 2018 season Wednesday, Aug. 30. Terms weren't disclosed. Griffin (shoulder) will miss several weeks due to a shoulder sprain.

Footballguys view: It's a good sign for Griffin as the team may see him as a long-term backup behind Jameis Winston. While he's banged up, veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick will serve as the immediate backup behind the Bucs star QB.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jeremy McNichols 'is making too many mistakes on offense' and has 'one final chance to show what he can do,' according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: The Bucs might be able to carry McNichols and Peyton Barber through Week 3, but after that Doug Martin returns from suspension. Barber seems to be ahead right now and Charles Sims has the receiving back role locked down.

  Buccaneers | Gerald McCoy may need MRI    Fri Aug 25, 02:40 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (pelvis, groin) is being checked out for a possible groin or pelvic injury and may require an MRI, but the team doesn't believe the injury is serious 'at this time,' according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

Footballguys view: McCoy is a big part of a defense that was dominant at times last year. If he misses time, it reduces the chances of this unit becoming top tier this year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 24, for the second straight day.

  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard finding a rhythm    Sun Aug 20, 10:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard showed improved chemistry with QB Jameis Winston during practice Sunday, Aug. 20, according to Mark Cook of PewterReport.com.

Footballguys view: Winston loves throwing to the TE position as evident by his college career at FSU and his targets for Cameron Brate in 2016. Howard is big, fast and physical on the field. He is going to split time this year with Brate in the new-look Bucs passing attack, and that limits the rookie's fantasy value. Plus, it usually takes time for TEs to transition to the NFL game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed for 30 yards and one touchdown on five carries in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Martin looked like his 2015 self, which was good enough for Top 10 running back numbers. Look for his ADP to rise despite his three-game suspension. The chances of Jacquizz Rodgers holding this job after Week 3 are going down.

Footballguys view: Winston had a few what are you doing moments, but he never seems to carry them into the next drive. He's still a boom/bust option with some upside at a very deep position in fantasy drafts.

  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard to focus mostly on blocking?    Tue Aug 15, 12:05 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard will most likely make his mark as a blocker - and not a receiver - early in the season, according to ESPN.com's Jenna Laine.

Footballguys view: This report should put a damper on fantasy owners and their excitement about the rookie from Alabama. He's talented..no doubt..and a big/strong/fast presence that QB Jameis Winston could eventually rely on. However, he didn't do much in his college career unless he was playing Clemson...then he exploded for HUGE games. Howard has natural talent but is going to be splitting time at the position with Cameron Brate...a breakout player for the Bucs last year. We love Howard in dynasty, but are taking a 'wait and see' approach with the rookie in redraft leagues.
