The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added TE Cameron Brate, RB Jeff Demps, QB Mike Kafka, LB Brandon Magee, DT Matthew Masifilo and WR Solomon Patton to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: Patton is an interesting player to monitor in super deep dynasty leagues. He's quick, fast and explosive in the open field. This helps him as a dangerous return man and as a slot receiver.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims expected to go on IR    Fri Aug 29, 02:00 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) is expected to be placed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list, which means he could return late in the season.

Footballguys view: Sims is a talented rookie who can be used effectively as a rusher or receiver out of the backfield. On short-term IR he'll be eligible to return around the halfway point of the year.

  Buccaneers | Acquire Logan Mankins    Tue Aug 26, 01:44 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to the parameters of a trade to acquire OG Logan Mankins (Patriots) in exchange for TE Timothy Wright and an undisclosed draft pick Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: This should be a sigh of relief for anyone investing in any part of the Bucs offense. Their guard play was quite possibly the worst in the league, and Mankins is a massive upgrade. Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson's values are a little safer than they were this morning.

  Buccaneers | Looked into Richie Incognito    Mon Aug 25, 04:34 PM

Updating a previous report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have thoroughly looked into free-agent OG Richie Incognito's (Dolphins) background before inviting him for a visit, according to sources. The team has considered meeting with Incognito for a while and likely will have lengthy discussions with him during the visit. There have been no contract talks at this point, and it is not known if Incognito will work out for the team during the visit.

Footballguys view: About a week ago, ESPN's Adam Schefter reached out to his connection on the Bucs to see if they were going to take a look at Incognito because of their lack of depth on the interior of the offensive. Schefter was told "absolutely not" at the time, yet here we are a week later and they've visited with the controversial veteran. We'll see if the team was just updating their emergency list or if they really have interest.

  Buccaneers | Richie Incognito visiting    Mon Aug 25, 11:15 AM

Free-agent OG Richie Incognito (Dolphins) will visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: Incognito may have big time character concerns, but there are teams out there who could use his services. The Bucs are one of those teams, and they need all the help they can get with their interior line.

Footballguys view: None of these cuts should come as a surprise. Perhaps guys like Dawson or Page could make it onto the practice squad.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans in altercation    Fri Aug 22, 04:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was allegedly involved in a fight outside a nightclub Saturday, Aug. 16. The alleged incident was caught on video, but no arrests were made.

Footballguys view: Evans is unlikely to see much trouble from this incident. If no arrests were made, then the league is probably not going to take any action.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin the bell cow    Fri Aug 22, 12:49 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaners RB Doug Martin was called the team's 'bell cow' running back by head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: The injury to rookie Charles Sims (ankle) means the Bucs will lean on Martin more than some originally thought. Coming off the shoulder injury that cut his season short in 2013, Martin is looking to produce like he did as a rookie in 2012 when he finished the year as the 3rd-best fantasy running back. His current ADP of RB13 (3.05) makes him a decent value.

  Buccaneers | Acquire Rishaw Johnson    Thu Aug 21, 02:14 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers acquired OG Rishaw Johnson (Chiefs) Thursday, Aug. 21, in exchange for FS Kelcie McCray.

Footballguys view: Johnson has played just three games in his career (all for his former team, the Kansas City Chiefs) and is another potential option for the Bucs at guard. The situation is a mess there for Tampa, and Johnson has a lot of catching up to do from a scheme standpoint.

  Buccaneers | R.J. Mattes signed    Thu Aug 21, 11:45 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed free-agent OG R.J. Mattes (Patriots). Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also released DE James Ruffin.

Footballguys view: The Bucs have issues at guard since Carl Nicks retired, though Mattes is likely a depth addition more than anything else. We want to keep an eye on the continuing improvement (or lack thereof) of the line so we know what to expect from critical fantasy pieces like Vincent Jackson and Doug Martin. Both are still high-value picks (both borderling first rounders at their position) but we've already got some concerns because of the quarterback and don't like the idea that the offensive line will add to those.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans named starter    Mon Aug 18, 10:21 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was named a starter, alongside WRs Vincent Jackson and Chris Owusu, by head coach Lovie Smith. Owusu will start in the slot.

Footballguys view: Absolutely zero surprise here. Evans was selected in the first round to be a starter, and he has the natural ability to be one of the best receivers in the game today. It will be exciting to watch him start opposite Vincent Jackson on Sundays.

  Buccaneers | Timothy Wright struggling    Sun Aug 17, 10:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright has been struggling with his catching and blocking during practice, according to head coach Lovie Smith. 'He's dropped some balls. If you watched practice, he's dropped balls. But he's a big part of what we want to do with the two-receiver, two-tight-end set. Tim hasn't blocked as well inside. Once you're that H-back and you don't block, now they say you're just another receiver and teams start going nickel. If they do that at least you have to be a good pass catcher. Tim's a good player. He just hasn't played as well as he needs to lately,' Smith said. Wright may have to compete with TE Luke Stocker for a roster spot if he does not improve his play.

Footballguys view: Wright had some sleeper promise as a slot receiver who could masquerade as a tight end in fantasy leagues, but his star is dimming at the moment. Rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins could get a decent role as soon as he is ready if Wright continues to have lapses.

  Buccaneers | Mike James doubtful to play Saturday    Sun Aug 17, 03:51 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Mike James (shoulder) is unlikely to play in the team's next preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Saturday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: If this is a multi-week injury, Bobby Rainey will get on the field a decent amount early this year. Third-round pick Charles Sims is already out 12-14 weeks, so Rainey is the last man standing behind Doug Martin at the moment.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Brandon Magee (ankle), DE William Gholston (shoulder), CB Rashaan Melvin (ankle), RB Mike James (shoulder) and SS Major Wright (back) left the team's preseason game with injuries Saturday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Charles Sims is out for 12-14 weeks, so the Bucs embarrassment of riches at backup running back could turn into embarrassingly little depth in a very short time. Bobby Rainey is becoming a more important player by the day, although this could end up being minor for James when the dust settles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is starting in place of WR Chris Owusu in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.
