Week 5: vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Jameis Winston loves throwing AT Mike Evans (28 targets in the last two weeks), but he is still working on throwing TO Evans (10 receptions for 133 yards and zero TDs). Meanwhile, Vincent Jackson has amassed 35 targets for 19/292/2 receiving so far this year, including 15 targets for 10/147/1 receiving against the Panthers last weekend. We'll see if Winston can get more in synch with Evans now that they've had some reps in game conditions together. The Jaguars' pass D is ranked 26th in the NFL averaging 278.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with six passing scores given up vs. one interception (tied for 28th in the NFL) and nine sacks (tied-ninth) generated to date. 30/47 for 266 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions were given up to Matt Hasselbeck last week (he was sacked three times for -16 yards). This looks like a good matchup for the Buccaneers' young signal caller.

2015 Week 3 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Stocker was announced as the "starter" at tight end with Austin-Seferian Jenkins out, but Brandon Myers saw more snaps and targets on offense. Stocker was used primarily as a blocker, as the Bucs used a lot of two-TE and TE/H-back sets. Stocker did not see any targets in the passing game.
