• DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 12/12/18 11:16am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, concussion) is not practicing Wednesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Jackson went off in Week 1 in what will probably be his best outing of the year. Look for Chris Godwin to eventually supplant Jackson behind Mike Evans. The Bucs face a tough test in the Philadelphia Eagles, but Godwin is worth a look as a flex if Jackson sits.

  • Dirk Koetter - HC
    Posted 10/22/18 11:52am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber (undisclosed) suffered an undisclosed injury in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns. Head coach Dirk Koetter refused to disclose the nature of the injury.

    Huddle Up: It helps to explain why rookie Ronald Jones saw seven touches in the game, including a short scoring plunge late in the third quarter. Jones would be a flex option at best if Barber is forced to miss any games, but owners won't have much to work with regarding Barber's availability until the injury report comes out on Wednesday.

  • Peyton Barber - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 5:53pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 11 times for just 30 yards in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Barber led the backfield in total touches, but he didn't do much with the opportunity. The good news is that neither of his counterparts did much, either. Barber remains most of a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 8 against the Bengals on the road.

  • Ronald Jones - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 5:50pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed six times for 13 just yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 overtime win against the Cleveland Browns and he added a 15-yard catch on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Jones had seven touches to 11 for Peyton Barber, but no one was able to go very far against a surprisingly stiff Browns run defense. The former USC standout Jones is only worth a look as a RB4 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the Bengals.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 10/21/18 5:47pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 32-of-52 passes for 365 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns while running for 55 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Winston has back-to-back 300-yard performances, although this was his first time in three games without throwing a TD pass. The yardage totals have been nice lately, but he is still more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats. The Buccaneers travel to meet the Bengals in Week 8.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 10/21/18 6:05pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson had two receptions for 25 yards on five targets in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns and he finished with two runs for eight yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Thankfully Jackson was able to find the end zone with his feet, but his receiving stat line was poor. He'll look to get back on track in Week 8 against the Bengals on the road. Treat Jackson as more of a low-end WR4 in most fantasy leagues.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 10/21/18 5:58pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard was good for five receptions for 67 yards on nine targets in the Week 7 overtime win against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: While Howard didn't get into the end zone, he does have nine grabs for 129 yards and a score on 13 targets over the past two games. He is a solid low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues. The Bucs travel to meet the Bengals in Week 8.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 10/21/18 5:55pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans registered seven receptions for 107 yards on a team-high 11 targets in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Evans has failed to get into the end zone in each of his past three games dating back to Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he did go over 100 yards for the first time since that MNF outburst. He is the unquestioned fantasy stud and receiving leader in Tampa and he remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues through thick and thin. The Bucs travel to meet the Bengals in Week 8.

  • Chris Godwin - WR
    Posted 10/21/18 6:09pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin finished with five receptions and 59 yards on six targets in the Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Godwin has 56 or more receiving yards and at least six targets in four of his past five outings. He has emerged as a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Buccaneers travel to meet the Bengals in Week 8.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 10/19/18 12:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Winston is coming off a terrific Week 6 performance and should have a favorable matchup again this week. He can be a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues in Week 7.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 10/18/18 12:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) practiced fully Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Winston faces a tougher test in the dog pound versus the Cleveland Browns this week, but he's still a viable No. 1 fantasy quarterback after an overall solid outing in Week 6.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 10/17/18 1:10pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (hip) practiced fully Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: The Cleveland Browns have yielded just nine touchdowns while picking off nine passes so far this year, but that doesn't make Winston completely avoidable. Don't expect the same output from last week, but at worst he's a fine start for those with quarterbacks on bye.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 10/14/18 7:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 30 of his 41 passes for 395 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed five times for 31 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Winston piled up some big numbers in his first start of the year, and he has a great chance to be a QB1 the rest of the way thanks to Tampa Bay's potent offense and porous defense. He will face a tougher test against a solid Cleveland defense in Week 7.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 7:19pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes on five targets for 58 yards in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was Evans' worst game of the year across the board, and it also happened to be the first game Jameis Winston started. One game isn't enough to cause concern, but an upcoming matchup with an improved Cleveland defense could push Evans into WR2 territory.

  • Peyton Barber - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 7:09pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 13 times for 82 yards and caught four passes for 24 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was Barber's best performance of the season, and while he remains Tampa Bay's lead back, early deficits have forced the Buccaneers to abandon the run in most of their games. A Week 7 matchup with the Cleveland Browns should push Barber into flex territory.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 7:37pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson caught four of his nine targets for 77 yards and added a seven-yard run in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't his most efficient outing, but it was good to see Jameis Winston look Jackson's way nine times in their first full game together this season. Jackson is on pace to cruise past 1,000 yards this year, and he's a WR3 option heading into Week 7.

  • Chris Godwin - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 7:33pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught six of his nine targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Godwin doesn't pile up a ton of yards, but he now has four touchdowns in five games. His habit of finding the end zone makes him a boom-or-bust flex option.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 10/14/18 7:30pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught his only target, a 15-yard touchdown, in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6, and Brate has scored in each of the past three games.

    Huddle Up: While Brate is still a weapon in the red zone, he has just seven catches all year and has become a touchdown-dependent fantasy option.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 10/14/18 7:23pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard caught all four of his targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Cameron Brate also caught another touchdown, but Howard has emerged as the top tight end in Tampa Bay. He has topped 50 yards in four of the five games this year and is a low-end TE1 option on a weekly basis.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 10/13/18 9:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (knee) is listed as questionable but is expected to play against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Howard is a matchup nightmare, but he is still searching for consistency. However, his big-play ability from the tight end spot makes him a great streaming option in what could be a high-scoring affair with Atlanta.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 10/12/18 11:41am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 12, but is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Howard appears to have a good chance to play against the Atlanta Falcons and should receive some targets during the game. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues if he is active.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 10/11/18 1:51pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know more on Howard's status over the next few days, but he should have a solid offensive role if he plays. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues if he is active.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 10/10/18 3:23pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Howard may have a chance to play this week if he does not suffer any setbacks during practice. He has posted solid numbers during the early part of the season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he plays.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 10/1/18 9:43am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (knee) is expected to miss two to four weeks after being diagnosed with an MCL sprain Monday, Oct. 1, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It's another blow to the tight end position for fantasy owners, but there is some good news to be had here. The Buccaneers are on a bye in Week 5 and Cameron Brate is a capable fill-in who should be available in the majority of leagues, especially if Jameis Winston is reinstalled as the starting quarterback.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 10/1/18 11:42am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will replace Ryan Fitzpatrick and start at quarterback in Week 6 versus the Atlanta Falcons following the team's Week 5 bye, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

    Huddle Up: It was a nice run for Fitzpatrick, but the magic ran out as it usually does with him following a shaky first-half performance in Week 3 and a lackluster showing in Week 4. While Winston can't be expected to reach the highs Fitzpatrick did in the first two games, his supporting cast is such that he could play at a QB1 level the rest of the way if he simply takes care of the ball better than he has been in the past. He should be a solid streaming option against the injury-ravaged Falcons in two weeks.

  • Ronald Jones - RB
    Posted 9/30/18 7:42am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is expected to be active for Week 4's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: Jones had been deactivated for the first three games of the regular season, with Peyton Barber receiving the bulk of the playing time in the Tampa Bay backfield. Jones makes a risky play in all fantasy formats since it remains to be seen how involved he will be in the offensive game plan.

  • Ronald Jones - RB
    Posted 9/30/18 9:15am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is active for the team's Week 4 game against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 30, 2018.

    Huddle Up: Jones, the Bucs' second-round pick out of USC, was a healthy scratch for the team's first three games, but with Peyton Barber producing only 124 rushing yards and one 7-yard reception in three starts, Tampa looks like it will see if the rookie can provide a spark. If he's been on your bench, keep him there for now and see what develops.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 9/30/18 11:34am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (knee) suffered a knee injury in the first half of the team's Week 4 game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Sept. 30, and his return is listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: The emerging Howard didn't have a first-half reception, and if he can't go, fellow TE Cameron Brate will see more looks with the Bucs in full-scale catch-up mode down 35-3.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 9/30/18 1:02pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 16-for-20 for 145 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Chicago Bears in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Winston probably will receive the Week 6 start, but owners will have to wait for an official announcement. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

  • Peyton Barber - RB
    Posted 9/30/18 1:35pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 24 yards on seven carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Barber was facing a tough Bears defense and did not receive a lot of carries with the team trailing for a majority of the game. He should have more success against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6 and can be at least a flex option.
