• Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 10/18/17 11:07am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) remains day-to-day after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers are giving their quarterback as much time as they can to recover from the AC sprain he suffered in his throwing shoulder in Week 6. The hope is he will be able to show the coaching staff he can throw enough velocity either Thursday or Friday to warrant a start in Week 7 versus the Buffalo Bills. If he can't go, Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the nod against one of his many former teams and would qualify as a decent start in two-quarterback leagues.

    Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) suffered a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder.

    Huddle Up: Winston is likely to be able to play through it, but it'll be a pain-tolerance issue that is in his throwing shoulder. He was able to return to the game and throw, which was a good sign. He'll remain a mid-to-low QB1 against the Buffalo Bills next week.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) is considered day-to-day because of a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. Koetter said Winston is not expected do any throwing during practice this week.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation this week to see if Winston will be able to play in Week 7. He has thrown for at least 300 yards in three of the last four games and would be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he is active but would also come with some risk.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) left the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals due to an apparent right throwing shoulder injury. He is doubtful to return.

    Huddle Up: Famous Jameis was replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick in a game that was already going south on the scoreboard. More on Winston's injury when we know it.

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) plans to play in Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills after leaving the game Sunday, Oct. 15, due to a right shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Winston was originally considered doubtful to return, but he was throwing on the sidelines trying to come back in. He could not throw like he wanted, so he didn't return and Ryan Fitzpatrick finished up. It's a tough matchup for Winston heading into Buffalo, so it might be a good idea to go another way.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 10/15/17 7:40pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught six of his eight targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6, and he has caught a touchdown in four straight games.

    Huddle Up: Brate has become much more than a weapon in the red zone this year, and he should be treated as a TE1 in all formats at this point.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 7:34pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught three of his eight targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was the first time this year that Evans has been held below five catches, but it was also his most receiving yards to date thanks to multiple big plays. He remains a must-start WR1 regardless of the matchup.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 10/15/17 7:29pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22 of his 32 passes for 290 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions after taking over for QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Winston said he expects to return against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7, but if Fitzpatrick is forced to make a start, he showed he can at least play well enough to keep Tampa Bay's other fantasy options relevant.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 7:44pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin finished with 14 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 11 yards in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Martin has scored in both of his games since returning from suspension, and he is clearly the team's lead back. He should be no worse than a RB2 moving forward.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 10/13/17 9:04am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin admitted to wearing down after logging 26 snaps in his season debut in Week 5 but feels as though he is ready to go wire-to-wire in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals if necessary. 'I feel like I can handle anything coach asks me to do. I?m prepared to do everything,' Martin said.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Dirk Koetter seemed hesitant at the thought of adding too much to Martin's workload when asked about it Thursday, suggesting 'he has no problem with any of his other backs' and giving Martin more work is something that will 'present itself.' Martin looked great in limited action in Week 5 and has certainly earned the right to be an every-week RB2 in fantasy, even in a difficult matchup against Arizona.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 10/5/17 11:10am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has a chance to have a significant role on offense against the New England Patriots in Week 5 because the team believes his return can spark the offense, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Dan Graziano.

    Huddle Up: Martin has missed the first three games because of a suspension and had limited practice time this week but should have a role against the Patriots. He should become the team's starting running back in the near future but it is not known how many touches he will receive this week. Owners can consider him a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 10/5/17 8:55pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with five catches on eight targets for 49 yards in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: The matchup looked great on paper, but Evans delivered his most disappointing effort of the season. He draws a tough matchup against Patrick Peterson and the Arizona Cardinals next time out, but Evans is still a must-start option.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 10/5/17 8:53pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 26 of his 46 passes for 334 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for 11 yards in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Although Winston piled up the yardage, it was somewhat of a disappointing outing against a New England defense that has been torched repeatedly this season. He will be a low-end QB1 heading into a Week 6 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 10/5/17 8:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate finished with five catches on nine targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5, his third straight game with a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Brate clearly has the trust of Jameis Winston in the red zone, and his ability to find the end zone makes him a low-end TE1.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 10/5/17 8:46pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin made his season debut against the New England Patriots Thursday, Oct. 5, finishing with 74 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries and one catch for eight yards.

    Huddle Up: Martin wasted no time reclaiming the lead role in the backfield, and he dominated the touches. Pencil him in as a RB2 against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

  • Nick Folk - PK
    Posted 10/5/17 9:16pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Nick Folk went 0-for-3 on his field goal attempts against the New England Patriots Thursday, Oct. 5, missing from 56, 49 and 31 yards.

    Huddle Up: Folk has now missed five kicks in five days so it wouldn't be unexpected if the team chose to go in another direction. If they do, Tampa Bay's new kicker could be of interest as Folk has 11 FGAs in just four games. Stay tuned.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 10/5/17 9:11pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught five passes for 106 yards during the team's Week 5 loss to the New England Patriots. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: D-Jax led or tied for the team lead in receptions, yardage and targets, and it was his first triple-digit performance since joining the Bucs. He has always been a 'feast or famine' fantasy option, and that figures to continue moving forward.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 10/2/17 12:21pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday, Oct. 2.

    Huddle Up: Martin's role for Week 5 is uncertain since it will be his first game of the season and the team plays on Thursday Night Football. He may see limited work if he is active against the New England Patriots because he missed the first three games, which makes him a risky option. Martin should become the starting running back in the near future and can be a weekly starting option when that occurs.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 10/1/17 8:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard caught two passes for 63 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown, in a 25-23 win over the New York Giants Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Howard flashed his athleticism, but with just four catches in three games, he only needs to be owned in keeper leagues currently.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 10/1/17 8:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 22 of his 38 passes for 332 yards and three touchdowns in a 25-23 win over the New York Giants Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Winston carved up a Giants defense that has been playing well this season, and he is a QB1 option heading into a Week 5 matchup with the struggling defense of the New England Patriots.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 10/1/17 9:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught four passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 25-23 win over the New York Giants Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Brate has scored in two of the three games this year, and he has remained the top tight end in Tampa Bay despite the addition of O.J. Howard. He is a viable streaming option against the New England Patriots in Week 5.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 10/1/17 9:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans finished with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 25-23 win over the New York Giants Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Evans has 32 targets through three games and remains the go-to option for Jameis Winston. He is a high-end WR1 heading into a Week 5 matchup against the New England Patriots that could turn into a shootout.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 9/24/17 7:06am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans still has two years left on his contract, but the Buccaneers have started preliminary contract extension talks with Evans, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Evans has become one of the best receivers in the NFL, and the two sides have plenty of time to work out a long-term contract extension. He should be a starting fantasy option no matter the matchup.

  • Adam Humphries - WR
    Posted 9/24/17 1:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries caught six passes for 68 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Humphries was targeted 10 times against the Vikings but his targets likely will depend on the opponent each week. He could be owned in most leagues but probably can stay on the bench against the New York Giants next week.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 9/24/17 1:35pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught four passes for 84 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Jackson has been targeted seven times in each of the first two games and will continue to be a big part of the passing game because of his deep-threat potential. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in all leagues next week.

  • Jacquizz Rodgers - RB
    Posted 9/24/17 1:31pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 15 yards on five carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers did not run much during the game, but Rodgers received about half of the carries. He likely will start again in Week 4, but may lose the job when Doug Martin returns from suspension. Rodgers probably should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues against the New York Giants.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 9/24/17 12:48pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 28-for-40 for 328 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Winston was coming off a solid Week 2 performance but struggled at times against the Vikings. He likely will continue to post solid passing stats because of the weapons he has to work with and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback against the New York Giants.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 9/24/17 1:48pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught four passes for 33 yards and one touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Brate is still seeing a solid amount of playing time at tight end even though the team selected O.J. Howard in the first round of the draft. Brate could be a No. 2 tight end on some leagues but likely will not be in the starting lineup very often.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 9/24/17 1:43pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught seven passes for 67 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Evans was facing a tough Vikings secondary this week but was able to make seven catches for the second straight week. He remains one of the better receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.

  • Jacquizz Rodgers - RB
    Posted 9/20/17 6:50am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (illness) started in Week 2 despite batting with the flu.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers had a 19-67-1 showing and has a couple more games as the featured back until Doug Martin returns from suspension. He's a flex option against the Minnesota Vikings this week.
