• Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 12/10/17 7:41am ET

    Confirming a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) will start Week 14's game against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Martin was a full practice participant throughout the week and was not listed on the injury report. He should be viewed as a risky flex option this afternoon, especially given how well RB Peyton Barber played in his absence.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 12/10/17 6:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate finished with one reception for 11 yards on his only target in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Brate appears to have fallen behind rookie O.J. Howard in the pecking order among tight ends and that's obviously not good for his fantasy appeal. He is only worth retaining in the deepest of leagues heading into Week 15.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 12/10/17 6:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson ended up with four receptions for 41 yards on seven targets and he added a 23-yard rush.

    Huddle Up: Jackson has posted two or more receptions in each of his 13 games so far this season, regardless of the quarterback. While his yardage totals haven't been great, he remains a decent WR4 or flex option in deeper PPR formats.

  • O.J. Howard - TE
    Posted 12/10/17 6:53pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard ended up with four receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Howard has all the tools to be a TE1 going forward, but he has had to share the wealth with Cameron Brate. The rookie is starting to push ahead of Brate on the depth chart and he could be a fantasy stud in 2018 and beyond.

  • Chris Godwin - WR
    Posted 12/10/17 6:52pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin finished with five receptions for a team-high 68 yards on six targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Godwin has emerged as a solid pass catcher down the stretch for the Bucs, although fantasy owners of Mike Evans aren't terribly pleased with his emergence. Despite the solid play lately Godwin is still nothing more than a WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues down the stretch. He could be a nice sleeper in 2017, however.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 12/10/17 6:52pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin carried 10 times for 26 yards in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions and he added two receptions for 24 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Martin was outgained 58-26 on the ground by Peyton Barber, who was tremendously effective on the ground when Martin was sidelined by injury the week before. It appears there is going to be a Tampa timeshare in the backfield and Martin might be on the short end.

  • Peyton Barber - RB
    Posted 12/10/17 6:51pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 12 times for a team-high 58 yards in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions and he added five-yard reception on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Barber led the team despite the return for Doug Martin from a one-game absence. Barber averaged 4.8 yards per run to just 2.6 yards per carry for Martin, and certainly looks to be the more effective back at this point. As long as there is a timeshare, however, he is nothing more than a RB3 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 12/10/17 6:50pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 285 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Winston has had difficulty with his surgically repaired shoulder and an ankle injury in a lost season for the Tampa Bay quarterback. He was expected to challenge for a spot as a QB1 in most fantasy leagues, but he has been far from dependable.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 12/10/17 7:12pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted just two receptions for 25 yards on five targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions

    Huddle Up: Evans hasn't had a 100-yard game this season, and he wasn't even close in this one. There have been some quarterback issues in Tampa this season, as Jameis Winston has been in and out of the lineup, but he was there in this game and he did next to nothing. He was drafted as a must-start WR1, but lately he has performed only like a WR3 or flex option. Not good.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 12/8/17 3:17pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) went through a full practice Friday, Dec. 8 and he is off the injury report for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Winston has a pretty solid matchup against the league's 27th-ranked pass defense, as the Lions allow 245.3 yards per game with 16 touchdowns through 12 outings. They have also yielded 36 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 12/8/17 3:16pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) was able to practice fully on Friday, Dec. 8, and he is off the injury report for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Martin is expected to start in Week 14, and that's bad news for the fantasy outlook of Peyton Barber. Martin should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option against the Lions.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 12/7/17 1:41pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) was full go in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Winston had a decent outing in his return last week but he has yet to fulfill or exceed expectations from the offseason. If you're thin on options then Winston can be started, but he could cause a playoff sweat.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 12/7/17 1:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and fully practiced Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Tampa Bay's backfield is a conundrum with Martin and Peyton Barber both vying for the starting job. Barber deserves to start again after a great fill-in job last week, plus Martin hasn't exactly done anything to write home about. The Muscle Hamster can't be started as more than a flex, and that might even be risky.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 12/6/17 2:52pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (ankle) took part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Winston was listed with an ankle ailment, not his usual shoulder injury. Either way, he practiced in full and appears to be ready for Week 14, but at this point he is more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 12/6/17 2:51pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Martin cleared concussion protocol and it is a good sign he practiced in full and wasn't even limited. Peyton Barber was sharp last week in a fill-in role and he might have worked his way into a timeshare situation with Martin, but that's just speculation. Still, a timeshare situation wouldn't be good for the fantasy appeal of either.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 12/3/17 9:07am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Winston is back in the lineup after missing the last several weeks because of the shoulder injury. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 8:55am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) is active for Week 13's game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated on a limited basis in the team's final two practice sessions of the week. He has a favorable matchup this afternoon against a shaky Green Bay secondary and is worth considering as a WR3 or flex option.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 12/3/17 9:18am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) is active for Week 13's game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Brate was listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in practice on a limited basis during the week. He has not posted great numbers recently, although having QB Jameis Winston under center could make him a somewhat viable fantasy option once again.

  • Mike Evans - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 3:59pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was limited to two grabs for 33 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Evans is working on five straight games without a touchdown, and he hasn't had a 100-yard game yet this season. He might be one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy football in 2017.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 12/3/17 3:55pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate stepped up with 39 receiving yards and two touchdowns on his only two catches in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Brate was a question mark this week due to a hip injury, but he definitely made a fantasy impact for those who rolled the dice on him.

  • Charles Sims - RB
    Posted 12/3/17 3:55pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims played reserve roles in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers. With RB Doug Martin (concussion) out, Rodgers had three carries for 25 yards, and Sims totaled five touches for 41 yards.

    Huddle Up: Sims and Rodgers were barely involved as Peyton Barber totaled 143 yards of offense. Barber is the only back with fantasy appeal if Doug Martin misses Week 14.

  • Peyton Barber - RB
    Posted 12/3/17 3:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber stepped up with 23 rushes and 102 yards in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Barber did a great job in place of Doug Martin (concussion), and the three-headed monster in the Tampa Bay backfield never materialized. Barber saw 27 total touches, while Jacquizz Rodgers had just three touches and Charles Sims totaled five. As long as Martin is sidelined, Barber is the back you want for fantasy purposes.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 12/3/17 3:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 21 of his 32 pass attempts for 270 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers. He also lost a fumble which was scooped up for a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Winston also rushed five times for 18 yards. He missed time due to a right shoulder ailment, but he was back under center and he didn't appear to show any ill effects of his injury. However, he is still a risky fantasy play down the stretch, as the team is 4-8 and likely out of the playoff mix. It wouldn't be shocking to see the team rest him more down the stretch rather than risk him to further damage.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 4:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson posted two catches for 24 yards on three targets in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was listed as questionable this week due to a foot injury, but he fell just short and was unable to haul in a touchdown in the back of the end zone. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues in Week 14 and beyond.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 12/2/17 9:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (foot) is listed as questionable to face the Green Bay Packers in Week 13, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Jackson draws a favorable matchup against a shaky Green Bay secondary, so it is a little easier to roll him out there as a boom-or-bust WR3.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 12/2/17 9:36pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) is listed as questionable against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Brate has disappeared from the offense since Jameis Winston went down with an injury, but with Winston likely returning, Brate could be worth a flier if you need tight end help.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 12/1/17 8:34am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Jacquizz Rodgers, Peyton Barber and Charles Sims would figure to split the work, which doesn't lend much fantasy upside against the Green Bay Packers. The Pack have allowed just 2.92 yards per rush to backs the last five weeks.

  • Jameis Winston - QB
    Posted 12/1/17 1:39pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) was able to practice in full Friday, Dec. 1, and he is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Winston is expected to be back under center on Sunday, but he returns without Doug Martin in the backfield and Cameron Brate (hip) is questionable. It might be a good idea to keep Winston reserved and roll with someone else until he knocks off a little bit of the rust from his layoff.

  • Doug Martin - RB
    Posted 12/1/17 1:38pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 1, and he has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: The Bucs will use a three-headed backfield committee of Peyton Barber, Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims against a very stingy Packers rush defense.

  • Cameron Brate - TE
    Posted 12/1/17 1:37pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) was listed as limited for practice Friday, Dec. 1, and he is considered questionable for Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: If Brate is inactive it would mean rookie O.J. Howard would likely see a bump in targets and production for the road game against the Packers.
