Footballguys view: Winston might have a lower ceiling this week because of his injury and the matchup, but he's still a safe QB1 play at Buffalo.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston listed as limited    Thu Oct 19, 06:02 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

Footballguys view: Friday is the big day for Winston. If he can't throw and participate fully during practice, the Buccaneers could end up starting Ryan Fitzpatrick against the Bills on Sunday.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston does not throw    Thu Oct 19, 03:28 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) did not throw during practice Thursday, Oct. 19, but head coach Dirk Koetter said Winston is expected to take all of the first-team snaps during practice Friday, Oct. 20.

Footballguys view: Right now we have Ryan Fitzpatrick as a QB 2, but if Winston plays he could be a borderline QB1. It will depend on how he looks with those first-team snaps. Stay here and will keep you up-to-date.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston to throw Thursday    Thu Oct 19, 11:53 AM

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) is expected to throw some in practice Thursday, Oct. 19, according to offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

Footballguys view: The Bucs need Winston back sooner than later, as do Fantasy GMs who have Tampa offensive players. Ryan Fitzpatrick is good in short stints, but too inconsistent to trust. Winston isn't perfect but he's better for this offense.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston did all but throw    Thu Oct 19, 09:33 AM

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, but he did everything except throw. The team hasn't signed another quarterback, which would suggest Winston should at least be active as a backup in Week 7.

Footballguys view: With Ryan Fitzpatrick is under center, the Bucs are a wild card. Fitzpatrick has moments but is all too often prone to imploding. We're concerned he'll negatively impact the production - or at least consistency of that production - the Tampa offense can put together. Hopefully Winston will be back sooner than later.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston limited Wednesday    Wed Oct 18, 02:07 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) remains day-to-day after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Footballguys view: Winston is going to get more work as the week of practice goes on. We'll see how his body responds to more reps on Thursday and Friday. Winston's status for Week 7 on the road against the Bills is up in the air. If he can't play, Ryan Fitzpatrick would get the start for the Bucs.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston could throw later in week    Tue Oct 17, 11:29 AM

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) won't do any throwing until later in the week, if at all, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: They're not declaring him out but we're not overly excited about his chances to play. Check back on Friday to see if Winston is likely to play.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston has sprained AC joint    Mon Oct 16, 12:50 PM

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) suffered a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder.

Footballguys view: Winston was knocked out of the game on Sunday and replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick. He'll be brought along slowly this week, but Winston isn't yet declared out for Week 7 against the Bills. This is the type of injury he could play through, and we'll know more about Winston's status later in the week.

  Buccaneers | X-rays negative for Jameis Winston    Sun Oct 15, 07:58 PM

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) plans to play in Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills after leaving the game Sunday, Oct. 15, due to a right shoulder injury.

Footballguys view: The Bills pass defense has been a tough one to crack, so it's not a must play matchup. Winston's x-rays came back negative, but he still has an MRI tomorrow. Ryan Fitzpatrick would start if he can't go next week.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston doubtful to return    Sun Oct 15, 05:03 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) left the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals due to an apparent right throwing shoulder injury. He is doubtful to return.

Footballguys view: Ryan Fitzpatrick entered the game, which was basically out of the hand. The Bucs have already had their bye and could have to start Fitzpatrick against the Bills next week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries has nine catches for 125 yards in the fourth quarter of games this year, and he has eight catches for 82 yards in all other quarters combined.

Footballguys view: Humphries has seen his role altered with the addition of WR DeSean Jackson. We consider him a 'what the heck' flex in Week 6 against the Cardinals.

  Buccaneers | Week 6 injury report for Bucs    Fri Oct 13, 04:40 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Kwon Alexander (hamstring), S Keith Tandy (hip) and SS T.J. Ward (hip) were limited participant in practices Friday, Oct. 13, and all three have been ruled out for Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals. CB Josh Robinson (concussion) and DE Ryan Russell (shoulder) did not practice and are also out. LB Lavonte David (ankle) was a limited participant, while DE Robert Ayers (back) and C Ali Marpet (illness) practiced in full. That trio is listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: It sounds like Lavonte David could be back this week, but the Bucs defense is still weakened in the back seven against Adrian Peterson in his debut as a Cardinal.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin ready for more work    Fri Oct 13, 12:04 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin admitted to wearing down after logging 26 snaps in his season debut in Week 5 but feels as though he is ready to go wire-to-wire in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals if necessary.

Footballguys view: This makes the Bucs decision to not establish the run with more authority defensible and perhaps takes a small edge off of Martin's upside against Arizona.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson leads TB in receiving    Fri Oct 6, 12:11 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught five passes for 106 yards during the team's Week 5 loss to the New England Patriots. He was targeted nine times.

Footballguys view: Jackson was the Bucs best receiver in Week 5, and he should get more targets going forward. He did have a wrap on his arm/wrist after the game, so we'll watch that situation going into next week. Jackson does have extra rest to heal from whatever was bothering him after the game. He should be a good play next week if Patrick Peterson covers Mike Evans.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston throws for 334    Thu Oct 5, 11:53 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 26 of his 46 passes for 334 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for 11 yards in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Winston was quiet for a lot of this game, but came on in the fourth quarter to post a solid night against a very weak Patriots defense. The team should emphasize the run more with Doug Martin back and Winston's numbers have hidden some uneven play, so he's shakier than his stats suggest going to Arizona next week.

  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate scores again    Thu Oct 5, 11:49 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate finished with five catches on nine targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5, his third straight game with a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Brate could have had even more, with a couple of drops and big play called back by a penalty. He's still Jameis Winston's most trusted receiver in the red zone and he ranks among the mid-low TE1 group going forward.

  Buccaneers | Solid debut for Doug Martin    Thu Oct 5, 11:46 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin made his season debut against the New England Patriots Thursday, Oct. 5, finishing with 74 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries and one catch for eight yards.

Footballguys view: Martin looked sharp, with a great initial burst and determination at the end of his runs. The Bucs should go back to aiming to feed him 20+ carries a game next week at Arizona.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin to have big role?    Thu Oct 5, 02:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has a chance to have a significant role on offense against the New England Patriots in Week 5 because the team believes his return can spark the offense, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Dan Graziano.

Footballguys view: It could be a week or two before Martin is really up to speed, but the Patriots defense has been a dumpster fire. We see him as a low-end RB2 in his first week back.
