  Buccaneers | Roberto Aguayo is a bit rattled    Mon Aug 22, 09:52 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Roberto Aguayo said Monday, Aug. 22, that he has reached out to both a kicking coach and mental coach to help him with kicking woes that have plagued him this preseason. 'I'm just focusing on relaxing and sometimes not thinking about it too much,' Aguayo said. 'When you're overthinking like, 'OK, I have to do this and this and this,' you get too many thoughts in your head. Sometimes you have to sit back and relax and just kick it.'

  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate drops a couple    Sun Aug 21, 10:22 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate dropped a pass that led to an interception and dropped another pass that would have been a touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: This could be part of the reason that Austin Seferian-Jenkins is back on the first team - splitting snaps with Brate. If this trend continues, Seferian-Jenkins could be starting by Week 1.

  Buccaneers | Seferian-Jenkins back on first team again    Sun Aug 21, 06:27 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has 'earned the right' to share first-team reps with TE Cameron Brate again, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: This short-circuits a tight end situation that yielded eight scores last year. Brate has certainly earned a sizable role and should also get play in the red zone. Seferian-Jenkins is the superior talent, but he had to work his way out of the doghouse. Chances are neither will be reliable week-to-week, but together the Tampa tight ends will outproduce some TE1s.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans makes presence felt    Sat Aug 20, 11:59 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in two receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown in a cameo in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Evans has dropped some weight and he's trying to be more consistent and healthy coming off of a disappointing second year. He'll cost you a second-round pick in most drafts, which means he is being drafted at his ceiling again this year.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston shaky in win    Sat Aug 20, 11:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed just three of his 10 pass attempts for 28 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran twice for 15 yards.

Footballguys view: Winston struggled against the new look Jaguars defense. He'll start with Atlanta in the regular season, but then a brutal stretch against the Cardinals, Rams, Broncos, and Panthers will test Winston's development in his second year.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin sitting Saturday    Sat Aug 20, 02:08 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ribs) will not play Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to bruised ribs. The decision is strictly precautionary and Martin is expected to play against the Cleveland Browns next week.

Footballguys view: Charles Sims will get some extra run and UDFA Peyton Barber will get extra opportunities to impress his way into a roster spot behind Mike James as the fourth running back.

  Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins has best practice    Thu Aug 18, 07:07 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins had 'probably' his best day of camp Thursday, August 18, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. He was 'nearly unstoppable' during 7-on-7 red zone drills, hauling in three touchdown passes from QB Jameis Winston.

Footballguys view: Talent has never been a question with the young TE. However, there are certainly questions about work ethic, desire and motivation. If he's focused, Seferian-Jenkins has the natural talent to be a top-10 TE in the game. Fantasy owners should be excited about his potential, but that doesn't make him anything more than a 'lottery ticket' TE3 for 2016.

  Buccaneers | More on Demar Dotson's deal    Mon Aug 15, 05:05 PM

  Buccaneers | Demar Dotson extended    Mon Aug 15, 10:59 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OT Demar Dotson was signed to a contract extension Monday, Aug. 15. Terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dotson has been a quality right tackle for the Bucs after going undrafted in 2009. He has also filled in at left tackle. 2015 was an injury-marred season for Dotson, but he has had a strong camp and dominated the right tackle competition with Gosder Cherilus. The Bucs are hoping youngsters Donovan Smith Ali Marpet take a step forward this year, while the 30-year-old Dotson will remain a cornerstone beyond 2016. The deal is reportedly worth around six million dollars per season.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston sharp Thursday    Thu Aug 11, 10:29 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed seven of his nine passes for 97 yards and a touchdown in four series against the Philadelphia Eagles in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Overall he played pretty well, but was a bit uneven and lost a fumble. We'd like to see a little more confidence and decisiveness as well, but for the first preseason game of his second season, we'll cut Winston some slack. We see some nice strides forward coming for him this year and feel he should be a solid QB2 for your fantasy team.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson may play Thursday    Thu Aug 11, 03:59 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (undisclosed) will warm up before the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 11, and may play in the game if he feels good.

Footballguys view: The Bucs will be careful with him considering he had injury issues last season. That, along with Mike Evans stepping in permanently as the top receiver in the offense, limits Jackson's upside. We don't see a huge impact coming from him this season, so leave him as a WR5 you can use depending on matchups.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims to miss preseason game    Thu Aug 11, 03:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) will not play in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 11. Sims is being held out as a precaution.

Footballguys view: Sims was the third down back/general pass-catcher in the Bucs backfield, and we have faith he will be again. Also, keep in mind that Doug Martin has missed a lot of time in half of his four seasons, so Sims is a good handcuff choice for him. Otherwise, as both backs split carries, consider Sims an RB4 with upside in standard leagues, or an RB3 in PPR.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson banged up    Tue Aug 9, 11:02 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (undisclosed) is out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 9, as a maintenance day and because he's banged up, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: Jackson had a knee injury that cost him a lot of 2015, so we would rather hear that he is feeling better than ever. He was a disappointment but his ADP that often puts him in the double digits rounds makes him pretty cheap for an accomplished wide receiver in a good pass offense.

  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate the starter    Wed Aug 3, 11:30 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate is the starting tight end over TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins because Brate is making plays and has improved his run blocking.

Footballguys view: It's time to start wondering if Seferian-Jenkins is trade bait, as he appears to still be in Dirk Koetter's doghouse. Brate should be on our radar as a late-round sleeper tight end.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Vernon Hargreaves III is working with the first-team defense in the slot Wednesday, Aug. 3.

Footballguys view: Hargreaves is a great target in IDP leagues because he will be a common target for opposing quarterbacks as they test the rookie. He might see Julio Jones on some snaps in Week 1, and Week 2 against Arizona will certainly present some challenges.

  Buccaneers | Adam Humphries the third receiver    Mon Aug 1, 11:06 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries will be the team's third receiver, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: Humphries is still going to have only negligible fantasy value as the slot receiver on a team with two strong options outside and two good pass catchers at tight end, but if Jameis Winston grows as a passer, Humphries could get on the radar in very deep leagues.

  Buccaneers | Jonathan Krause shining in camp    Mon Aug 1, 10:42 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Jonathan Krause is shining in camp with the Buccaneers, according to beat writer Roy Cummings.

Footballguys view: Krause will have trouble making the final roster unless he can beat out one of Louis Murphy, Russell Shepard, Kenny Bell, and Donteea Dye for the #4 or #5 spot, but he is a prime practice squad candidate.

  Buccaneers | Kenny Bell part of tight competition     Sun Jul 31, 11:32 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell looked like an 'MVP' during practice Friday, July 29, according to head coach Dirk Koetter, but Koetter said Sunday, July 31, the competition in the receiver group remains close.

Footballguys view: It sounds like Adam Humphries will be the #3 and slot receiver, but Bell could still situate himself as the top backup outside with a good summer. Bell is still a good dynasty stash and has a high career ceiling than Humphries.

  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate bulking up    Fri Jul 29, 11:29 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate said he added about five pounds of muscle since spring practices in order to improve his blocking and become a complete tight end.

Footballguys view: Keep Brate on your waiver-wire speed dial. He's the backup behind Austin Seferian-Jenkins on paper, but Brate could take over for him during the year. Seferian-Jenkins has been a large disappointment as a pro, and Brate has flashed while filling in for him before.

  Buccaneers | Kenny Bell impressing early in camp    Thu Jul 28, 10:18 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell has impressed early in camp. He caught two slant passes in practice Thursday, July 28, and outran defenders.

Footballguys view: As Han Solo would say (if he were an NFL coach or media pundit): "Look, good against guys in T-shirts and shorts is one thing. Good against real defenses? That's something else." He played really well last year in camp before getting hurt and missing the year. We know the team loves him because they flew him to road games even though he wasn't active. There have been some reports that are contrary to Cummings' glowing write-up so this will require a constant eye. Just a month ago people were saying he wasn't a lock to make the final roster.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans working on injury prevention    Wed Jul 27, 11:57 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans said Wednesday, July 27, he's doing a lot more preventative maintenance to reduce hamstring issues.

Footballguys view: Evans needs to stay healthy and cut down on the drops this year. He suffered through a sophomore slump in 2015, but we are expecting him to bounce back in 2016. Having a larger red-zone presence would make fantasy owners happy too.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Daryl Smith is expected to start at strongside linebacker this season.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston struggled in red zone    Wed Jul 20, 08:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed only 42% of his passes in the red zone in 2015, which was the second worst red-zone efficiency among quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: That's part of the reason why WR Mike Evans struggled to duplicate his TD total of 2014 last year. He had nine fewer TD receptions in his second season compared to what he compiled as a rookie. If Winston becomes more efficient in the red zone, then Evans will see his numbers increase. We could see Evans bouncing back this year with eight or so TDs.
