  Buccaneers | Mike Evans posts 96 yards    Sun Oct 13, 02:03 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught nine passes for 96 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He was targeted 17 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Jameis Winston wanted to get the ball to Evans more often and he did in a matchup that was a 4-61 evening for Evans the first time around. He'll remain an easy every week start as long as Jameis Winston is in at quarterback.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin has outstanding game    Sun Oct 13, 01:57 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught 10 passes for 151 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He was targeted 12 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Godwin posted a fat stat line as the Bucs were in catch up mode all afternoon. He's been one of the most valuable players in fantasy football and should remain one as long as Jameis Winston is allowed to chuck it around instead of benched, which is no sure thing. Another afternoon like this could be it.

  Buccaneers | Six turnovers for Jameis Winston    Sun Oct 13, 01:35 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 30-for-54 for 400 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He also lost a fumble during the game.

Footballguys view: Winston had numerous unforgivable errors in one of his worst games a pro - setting a career high in interceptions. He'll almost surely still be the starter in Week 8 after the bye, but we could see Ryan Griffin at some point this year as the Bucs have to be very hesitant to retain Winston after this season.

  Buccaneers | Week 6 injury report for Buccaneers    Fri Oct 11, 03:18 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OG Alex Cappa (forearm), LB Jack Cichy (elbow), OT Demar Dotson (hamstring), WR Breshad Perriman (hamstring) and OG Zack Bailey (ankle, foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and have been ruled out for Week 6. RB T.J. Logan (ankle) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable. DT Ndamukong Suh (knee) and OT Josh Wells (non-injury) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Bucs will be missing the right side of their starting offensive line on Sunday vs the surging Panthers pass rush. This is not ideal for Jameis Winston and the passing game, although you still have to play both Bucs receivers.

  Buccaneers | Targeting Mike Evans a priority    Fri Oct 11, 12:36 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is coming off a reception-less game in Week 5, and QB Jameis Winston says that has to change. 'Bottom line, to win football games, we've got to get Mike Evans the ball,' Winston said Thursday, Oct. 10.

Footballguys view: Evans has a tough matchup that held him to 4-61 in the first meeting this year, but it will be very difficult to bench him knowing this priority has been voiced.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay preaching patience with O.J. Howard    Thu Oct 10, 03:35 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard's 'time is coming in this offensive system,' according to offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, who added he wants the transition to happen naturally.

Footballguys view: Howard is barely rosterable right now, but it is at least encouraging to hear the offensive coordinator say something optimistic about his outlook. He might be on your waiver wire but is only worth adding if you have nothing at tight end.

Footballguys view: The Bucs will be without the right side of their line against one of the best pass rush units in the league. It could be a long London afternoon for Jameis Winston.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: Godwin has been limited in practice for some time now...and he goes all out on Sunday. Keep starting him as a WR1 and the best part of the Buccaneers offense, especially with Mike Evans getting so much attention from opposing defenses.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans invisible in Week 5    Sun Oct 6, 07:35 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted no receptions or offensive statistics on three targets in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Marshon Lattimore did his job well, but that's no reason to bench DJ Chark next week or Evans when these teams meet again in Week 11. We've got to keep Evans in our lineups next week even though he was a quiet 4-61 against them in the first matchup.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin has giant performance    Sun Oct 6, 07:28 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin registered seven receptions for 125 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Godwin might be a first round pick if we were drafting today. He got one of his scores in garbage time but they all count the game. He'll face a Panthers secondary that he already hung an 8-121-1 line on earlier this year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed nine times for a team-best 35 yards in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints and he added two grabs for 21 yards on three targets.

Footballguys view: Jones is clearly the best running back on the team, but the Bucs are going to stick with a hot hand approach. Jones remains a what the heck flex against the Panthers in London next week.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston tosses two more TDs    Sun Oct 6, 07:15 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 15-of-27 passes for 204 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints and he rushed for 13 yards.

Footballguys view: Winston didn't complete a pass to Mike Evans and only salvaged an acceptable result with a garbage time touchdown to Chris Godwin. He has cooled off and is a boom/bust option in London against Carolina next week.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin on record pace    Sat Oct 5, 02:39 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin has 26 receptions for 386 yards and four touchdowns through four games, putting him on pace for 1,544 yards and 16 TDs, which would break WR Mike Evans' single-season records of 1,524 and 12, respectively.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Godwin can keep up this pace. He's been banged up this year but still playing at a high level. Fantasy GMs can start Godwin as a WR1 every week.
