   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.

  Buccaneers | Week 11 Inactives    Sun Nov 16, 11:32 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Evans was able riff with Josh McCown on downfield throws in a way that he hadn't earlier this season. He's a must-start against Washington next week.

Footballguys view: Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims will split the work in the backfield. Johnson being out is a boon for the beleaguered Atlanta offensive line and passing game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) will play Sunday, Nov. 9, in Week 10.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans more comfortable    Thu Nov 6, 11:42 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is playing faster and appears to be more comfortable playing in the NFL, according to head coach Lovie Smith. 'Just like anything else, it's just brand new and he's really taking a step, it seems, every week and we're excited about that because obviously he's a difference-maker and we'll continue to push him and help him and try and guide him in a way that can really propel him into where he wants to be,' Smith said.

Footballguys view: Evans has looked good the last few games, but we don't know what to expect from an offense which is bringing Josh McCown back. McCown did target Evans frequently, and the rookie receiver has improved all aspects of his game so he might be more productive. McCown isn't a good quarterback though and that likely limits Evans' upside. As that's the case we see him as no more than a low-end WR2/flex this week though he has a considerable amount of upside.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans playing faster    Thu Nov 6, 10:30 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is playing faster and the offense is clicking more, according to head coach Lovie Smith. 'I think that's evident and I think he's putting some fear in some guys,' Smith said. 'He's playing faster, things are clicking a little bit more.'

Footballguys view: Evans has definitely seen more targets and become more of a factor over the last few weeks, though that was with Mike Glennon throwing the ball and now we're back to Josh McCown, and when he was "throwing" the ball to Evans, the rookie saw zero touchdowns and just 138 yards on 13 catches. The upside is Evans was heavily targeted by McCown (20 targets in three games), though a portion of the third game was quarterbacked by Glennon. We're still optimistic that Evans' comfort and improving skill in the offense translate to some solid numbers no matter who the quarterback is, but we're concerned enough to leave him as a low-end WR2/flex.
