Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 11/27/15 7:08pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: After a promising start -- five receptions for 110 yards and two TDs in the opener -- it continues to be a lost sophomore season for Seferian-Jenkins who looks like he'll miss a ninth straight game.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/23/15 7:06pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is a player the team wants to re-sign this offseason even though they declined to pick up the fifth-year option in his contract. Martin currently ranks second in the NFL with 941 rushing yards.
Huddle Up: With the bounce-back season Martin is enjoying, he's putting himself in position for for a hefty contract, and the Bucs now might find themselves caught up in a bidding war if Martin decides to test the market.
Jameis Winston - QBPosted 11/22/15 9:45pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston tied a rookie record with five touchdown passes in a 45-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. He completed 19 of 29 passes for 246 yards.
Huddle Up: Winston had actually been on a nice three-game fantasy stretch before last week but nothing like this five touchdown explosion. Winston has been playing well over the last month though and is an intriguing play next week when he takes on the Colts. He'll be one of the top adds for owners looking for quarterback help.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 11/20/15 4:39pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 11. Jackson returned to limited practice Thursday and Friday this week after sitting out Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Jackson appears to have his best chance of playing since Week 7, but it figures to come down to game-time call Sunday.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 11/18/15 4:07pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) is expected to be out once again in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: That would make it four straight missed games and continued additional looks for Mike Evans, who has been targeted a whopping 53 times over his last four games.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 11/18/15 7:26pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) was not at practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Jackson isn't expected to play against the Eagles. Mike Evans will once again dominate targets for the Buccaneers this week.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 11/13/15 12:14am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: If there's not a sudden change in fortune for V-Jax on Friday, count on him missing a third straight game.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 11/13/15 3:40pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: V-Jax will miss a third straight game, and that of course presents another prime opportunity for fellow WR Mike Evans -- provided he can hang on to the ball this week after an absurd six drops in Week 10 against the Giants.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 11/11/15 6:04pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 11, but he did work with a jug machine before practice.
Huddle Up: V-Jax will have show some progress over the next few days to have a shot at avoiding a third straight missed game.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 11/8/15 11:51pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had eight catches for 152 yards in a 32-18 loss to the New York Giants in Week 9, but he also lost a fumble and dropped five passes.
Huddle Up: Evans would have put up even bigger numbers if not for all the drops. He remains a high-end WR2 going forward but Evans needs to cut down on the drops if he wants to elevate his game to an elite level.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 11/7/15 1:01am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) continues to work toward returning in Week 9 against the New York Giants, but he wants to be 100% healthy before coming back to action. He has missed the last five games and 12 of 23 games in his short time with Tampa Bay. Seferian-Jenkins is optimistic he can play this weekend but isn't sure if he will. The Giants have allowed a league-high 684 yards and five touchdowns to tight ends this year.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins has a great matchup this week and would see an increase in targets with Vincent Jackson likely out another week. He will be a low-end TE1 if active.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 11/6/15 5:42pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 6, and is listed as questionable for the Week 9 game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Things are looking up for ASJ playing for the first time since Week 2 as he's gone from limited practice participation Wednesday and Thursday to a full workout Friday. Be sure to check the Bucs' pre-game inactives list Sunday, though, if you're planning on starting him.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 11/5/15 3:45pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: V-Jax, who missed the Bucs' Week 8 game in Atlanta, remains a major question mark and will need a sudden reversal of health fortune Friday to have any kind of decent shot at playing Sunday against the Giants.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 11/4/15 6:52pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) practiced again Wednesday, Nov. 4, and could return to action in Week 9 against the New York Giants for the first time in seven weeks.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins is trending in the right direction and the Giants are terrible at defending tight ends. Seferian-Jenkins is worth starting this week if you need him assuming he's active.
Jameis Winston - QBPosted 11/3/15 11:55pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has a total QBR of 88-plus in the last two games, becoming one of just four rookie quarterbacks to accomplish that in the last 10 seasons. He will face the New York Giants in Week 9, and they just allowed New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees to post a total QBR of 96.
Huddle Up: Winston has taken some of his biggest strides in taking better care of the ball as he's gone three straight games without an interception after tossing seven in his first four outings.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 10/30/15 7:12pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) missed practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 30, and is doubtful to play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Jackson isn't expected to play on Sunday. Mike Evans will be a target monster and a high-end WR2 versus the Falcons this week.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 10/29/15 11:55pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) remains uncertain for the Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons. TEs Cameron Brate, Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker has combined for just 11 catches, 95 yards and zero touchdowns on 16 targets in Seferian-Jenkins' absence. However, the Bucs aren't rushing Seferian-Jenkins back into action if he's not ready.
Huddle Up: ASJ has been a limited participant in both practices this week as he tries to return following his four-game injury absence. We should know more after the almost-always-telling Friday practice.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 10/28/15 2:24pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) could return to action in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons. Head coach Lovie Smith said Monday, Oct. 26, that he's looking forward to having his starting tight end back. Seferian-Jenkins has missed the last four games.
Huddle Up: ASJ was a Week 1 standout, catching five passes for 110 yards and two TDs before going out with the shoulder issue the following week and might have been dropped in your league after missing the last month.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 10/28/15 6:17pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Jackson hurt his knee in Sunday's loss in Washington, and while the injury doesn't look to be overly serious, it could keep him sidelined for the next few weeks, according to an NFL.com report Wednesday. Combined with season-ending ACL tear suffered by fellow wideout Louis Murphy on Sunday, that would mean extra targets for Mike Evans, who is coming off his best game (8-164-1) of the season in Week 7 and undrafted rookie Donteea Dye.
Vincent Jackson - WRPosted 10/28/15 8:47pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee) could miss multiple weeks after suffering a knee injury in Week 7. He is not expected to play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source informed of Jackson's progress. WR Mike Evans should now expect to see a lot of double coverage for however long Jackson is out.
Huddle Up: Evans will see a ton of targets with Jackson out. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is also close to returning and will be a big part of the offense with Jackson sidelined.
Donteea Dye - WRPosted 10/26/15 8:14pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Donteea Dye will slide into the No. 3 receiver role for the Buccaneers after WR Louis Murphy (knee) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in Week 7. Dye had a 7-yard touchdown catch in the loss to the Washington Redskins last weekend in his NFL debut.
Huddle Up: The undrafted rookie scored on his only target Sunday as Murphy and fellow WR Vincent Jackson were forced to the sideline with injuries. He likely won't see enough work to be fantasy relevant, though, unless injuries further cut into the Tampa WR corps.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 10/20/15 7:41pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is 13 of 33 with no touchdowns and three interceptions when targeting WR Mike Evans this year.
Huddle Up: Evans had quite the rapport with QBs Josh McCown and Mike Glennon as a rookie last season, catching 68 passes for 1,051 yards and 12 TDs but is off to a 13-174-0 start in four games so far with Winston. Perhaps the two were able to get more on the same page with the Bucs on a bye this past weekend.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 10/9/15 3:27pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: ASJ, who was injured in Week 2, still hasn't practiced and likely remains a couple weeks away, leaving Brandon Myers as the team's top pass-catching tight end.
Kyle Brindza - PKPosted 10/5/15 1:03pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Kyle Brindza was released Monday, Oct. 5, after missing seven kicks in the last two weeks.
Huddle Up: This comes as no surprise after Brindza missed six field goals and two extra points over the last three games. The Bucs will bring in kickers and name a replacement soon.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 10/3/15 1:56pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee, quadriceps) said he feels good and is ready to play Sunday, Oct. 4, against the Carolina Panthers. Martin said he nicked his knee in practice Thursday, Oct. 2, but that he'll be perfect for the Week 4 contest.
Huddle Up: Martin has been a disappointment again this year and he has a tough matchup on Sunday. He's nothing more than a low-end RB2/Flex play at this point.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 10/2/15 2:28pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee, quadriceps) returned to practice Friday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Martin caused some alarm by sitting out Thursday after injuring the knee in practice Wednesday, but he describes it as only a "nick." And even though he's officially listed as questionable, look for him to assume his lead role against the Panthers on Sunday. Of course, check the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injuries and Weather report before kickoff to be certain.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 10/1/15 6:06pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee, quadriceps) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 1, after injuring his knee in practice Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Coach Lovie Smith later told the Tampa Bay Times that Martin was held out for precautionary reasons and should be "OK" going forward. Midweek injuries, though, are always concerning so see if Martin is able to get back on the field Friday. If not, start counting on a bigger role for Charles Sims against the Panthers on Sunday.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 9/24/15 6:53pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Evans made his 2015 debut Sunday in New Orleans but only ran 21 pass routes on his 41 offensive snaps and was targeted just three times with no receptions. That should change this week after another full week of practice so get him in your lineup.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 9/23/15 8:52pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Evans is fully recovered from his hamstring injury. He's a WR2 this week against Houston.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 9/22/15 3:59pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) is expected to miss four to six weeks with a strained shoulder, according to a source. He will seek a second opinion.
Huddle Up: Horrid break for the second-year TE who had caught seven passes for 139 yards and two scores over the first two games. TEs Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker will take the majority of snaps at tight end. Myers is the better pass-catcher, while Stocker is more of a blocking tight end, and you'll definitely want the former if you're scrambling for a TE in a deep league.
