  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston's future still murky    Thu Dec 5, 01:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is currently playing out his fifth-year option on his rookie contract, and head coach Bruce Arians says it's still to be determined if Winston will be offered a new contract to return to the team in 2020. 'I'm gonna pass on that one. I'm gonna wait until the end of December,' Arians said at a news conference Wednesday, Dec. 4. 'There's been really, really good. And there's been some really, really bad.... I'm just going to pass until it's over. And then, we'll make a decision.'

Footballguys view: Who in the world knows what the future holds for Winston. He should have been better under Bruce Arians this year, but Winston is still a turnover machine most weeks. The Bucs could easily go in a different direction, be that a free agent or rookie quarterback in 2020.

  Buccaneers | Ronald Jones remains starter    Wed Dec 4, 03:38 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is still the team's starter, according to head coach Bruce Arians Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Footballguys view: That's cool but Fantasy GMs have moved on. Jones is getting vultured by Peyton Barber when the team is near pay dirt. He's also gotten benched for missing his block in pass protection. Jones is the starter, but from a fantasy perspective it doesn't matter much in week one of the fantasy playoffs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard caught five passes for 61 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13. He was targeted six times during the game.

Footballguys view: Howard came back to life in a game that could get him some looks on the waiver wire after a total bust of a season, and it should help the case for Hunter Henry's upside next week against the Jaguars.

  Buccaneers | Ronald Jones struggles in Week 13    Sun Dec 1, 06:00 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed for eight yards on six carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Jones was a bust in Week 13 even though the Bucs scored twice on the ground. The matchup yielded points to a Bucs running back, but not the one most people had in their lineup.

  Buccaneers | Two touchdowns for Peyton Barber    Sun Dec 1, 05:59 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 44 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Barber took advantage of a weak Jaguars run defense in the red zone but didn't have much success otherwise. The Chargers will get to attack the Jaguars on the ground next week and Barber will face Tampa.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston throws for 268 yards    Sun Dec 1, 05:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 21-for-33 for 268 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13. He also rushed for 20 yards on six carries.

Footballguys view: Winston was quiet today because the defense and running game accounted for all of the scores. He'll face a good Colts pass rush next week and fits as a high floor streamer.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans catches four passes    Sun Nov 24, 05:59 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes for 50 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: Evans and Chris Godwin have been trading off huge games all year and this week was no different. Next week against Jacksonville could be Evans turn, and he is still impossible to bench as long the Bucs defense and Jameis Winston make for combustible passing game numbers game scripts.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught seven passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: Godwin had a long catch and run score, another score through a big hit, and was the best part of the Bucs offense against a once again beatable Falcons defense. He could be a first round pick in fantasy leagues next year and faces the Jaguars next week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed for 51 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12. He also caught three passes for 16 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Jones was more involved in the passing game and the better of the two Bucs backs heading into a matchup with crumbling Jaguars run defense. He'll be worth a flex play next week.

  Buccaneers | Three touchdowns for Jameis Winston    Sun Nov 24, 05:24 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 18-for-28 for 313 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12. He also rushed for 38 yards on eight carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Winston has been reliable for fantasy this year even though he has often showed his negatives, just as he did early in this game. His excellent wide receiver play is adding value heading into a good matchup with a reeling Jacksonville squad in Week 13.

Footballguys view: The ankle is not a problem for Winston...but the interceptions are. He's on track for about 30 interceptions this season, which is an unheard of number in 2019. Winston has the potential to finish as a top-7 fantasy QB this week against the Falcons.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston should play Week 12    Mon Nov 18, 01:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) is expected to play in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons despite suffering an ankle sprain in Week 11 that was impacting his ability to step into throws, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Winston is a turnover machine this year and he could throw nearly 30 interceptions in 2019. The Buccaneers have given no indications of moving on from him this year but we fully expect them to find another quarterback for the 2020 season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes for 69 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 11. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: Evans didn't have to face Marshon Lattimore but still had a poor afternoon with only a few second half catches to salvage his afternoon. You have to still play him next week vs. Atlanta, but who knows what kind of effort you will get.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Scott Miller caught four passes for 71 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 11. He was targeted six times during the game.

Footballguys view: Miller is worth a stash in deep dynasty as a player similar to John Brown, who blossomed up Bruce Arians in Arizona. He had a long catch down to the one and should be well on his way to being the #3 receiver in this offense long term.
