Adam Humphries - WRPosted 12/8/16 6:59pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries (concussion) returned to practice and was a limited participant Thursday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: Humphries will likely be the No. 2 receiver for Tampa Bay in Week 14, and a friendly matchup with New Orleans makes him potential sleeper in DFS games.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 12/7/16 10:55pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin suffered a minor injury in the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers, giving way to RB Jacquizz Rodgers more in the fourth quarter. Rodgers may cut into Martin's touches this week, depending on the game flow and level of production early on, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners never want to hear about a potential scaling back of a role, but Martin could be in for fewer touches. The Saints are so-so against the rush, allowing 97.9 yards per game with 13 touchdowns in 12 games. Martin should be treated as more of a low-end RB2 this weekend.
Jacquizz Rodgers - RBPosted 12/7/16 10:54pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers might see added playing time in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints. 'It was good to get him back,' offensive coordinator Todd Monken said Wednesday, Dec. 7. 'I would assume he'll only be better this week in a little more of an expanded role.'
Huddle Up: Rodgers was lighting it up before his injury, but that was also when Doug Martin and Charles Sims were on the shelf. He now has Martin and Sims to contend with for touches. Still, Rodgers is worth a look again in deeper PPR leagues, especially against a porous Saints pass defense.
Cameron Brate - TEPosted 12/5/16 5:17am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate had a game-high six catches for 86 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 Sunday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Brate has averaged six targets per game over the last five games, and he has three touchdowns in that time. He has worked his way into the low-end TE1 mix, but he's not a sure thing.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 12/5/16 5:16am ET
Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (undisclosed) came out of the game OK, Sunday, Dec. 5, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.
Huddle Up: Martin struggled with 17 rushes for 45 yards but salvaged his day with a touchdown in Week 13. The New Orleans Saints have been better against RBs of late, but Martin will be a strong RB2 next week.
Charles Sims - RBPosted 12/5/16 3:27pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (knee) is expected to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list before the team's Week 14 game against the New Orleans Saints, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.
Huddle Up: Sims probably will see limited snaps in the first game or two but may have a chance to reclaim his old job behind Doug Martin. Owners may want to avoid Sims in Week 14, but he could be a flex option in the last few weeks depending on his role.
Adam Humphries - WRPosted 12/4/16 3:28pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries (concussion) left the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers due to a concussion and he will not return.
Huddle Up: Humphries finished with two grabs for 19 yards on his only two targets. He isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 12/4/16 6:30pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (undisclosed) left the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers late in the second half. He said he was 'bent back' late in the game, which is why RB Jacquizz Rodgers saw so much time down the stretch.
Huddle Up: Martin ended up with 17 runs for 45 yards and a touchdown while also hauling in a 23-yard catch on his only target. When healthy he is a solid RB2 in all fantasy leagues. We'll monitor his practice status all week and let you know if he'll be available for Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 12/2/16 1:02pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (not injury related) got in another full practice Friday, Dec. 2.
Huddle Up: Evans rested on Wednesday but has been a regular back at practice since then. As a result, there's no reason to be concerned with him providing his usual stellar production in Sunday's desirable matchup with the Chargers. As always, he'll enter that contest as a respectable WR1.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 12/1/16 1:37pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1.
Huddle Up: Evans and his wife recently had a baby, so that could be the reason for his absence. He's good to go for Week 13 and has a great matchup against the San Diego Chargers. Although, he should be started no matter whom he's playing. He's easily in WR1 territory.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 11/30/16 2:52pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.
Huddle Up: It was likely just a day off for the star receiver, but his status should still be monitored over the coming days. He's already proven to be matchup-proof, but he does have a decent matchup with the San Diego Chargers. San Diego is in the top 10 in yards allowed to wide receivers this year. Start Evans as a WR1 per usual, assuming he takes the field.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/28/16 5:46am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed 23 times for 87 yards against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Nov. 27. He caught two balls for three yards and lost a fumble as well.
Huddle Up: He has carried the ball 24 and 23 times in respective weeks, and yesterday's 3.8 yards per carry was a season high. He has a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers next week as an RB2.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 11/28/16 5:40am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught eight balls for 104 yards and two touchdowns against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: He did a lot of that on Richard Sherman and has really vaulted himself into the WR1 spotlight with a 73-1,020-10 season thus far. He has a good matchup next week against the San Diego Chargers.
Jameis Winston - QBPosted 11/28/16 6:02am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has thrown 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions in his last seven games.
Huddle Up: He threw a pick Sunday, but he was pretty good otherwise. He was 21-for-28 for 220 yards, two touchdowns and the interception. He has crept up into the QB1 conversation and has a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers next week.
Charles Sims - RBPosted 11/23/16 9:44am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (knee) has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Sims has 21 days to practice and play by Week 14. With Doug Martin back to his fragile ways, Sims is a good stash option.
Jacquizz Rodgers - RBPosted 11/23/16 7:53pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) could have practiced last week, a league source said Wednesday, Nov. 23, but the team is approaching his return 'extremely cautiously.' He is unlikely to play in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Before Rodgers' injury, he was starting with Doug Martin and Charles Sims on the shelf. Now, Martin is back and Sims is on the recovery trail. Even when Rodgers is able to return he is only worth a look in the deepest of PPR leagues.
Cameron Brate - TEPosted 11/20/16 7:18pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate posted two catches for 18 yards on three targets in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was targeted three times.
Huddle Up: Brate saw his three-game touchdown streak come to an end, and his yardage total was his lowest since a 16-yard line in Week 2. Chalk it up as one poor outing, as he remains a decent streaming option in most deeper fantasy leagues.
Cecil Shorts - WRPosted 11/20/16 7:17pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Cecil Shorts III posted five receptions for 62 yards in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was targeted seven times.
Huddle Up: The Bucs are looking for someone to step up with Vincent Jackson gone for the season, and Shorts is a veteran with plenty of experience. Still, he is only worth attention as a WR4 in the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 12 against the Seahawks.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 11/20/16 7:17pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans hauled in six receptions for 105 yards on 13 targets in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Evans continues to be a bona fide WR1 in all fantasy leagues, but he could struggle in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks and their lockdown pass defense.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/20/16 7:16pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) rushed 24 times for 63 yards in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added three receptions for 42 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: The 27 touches was a good sign that Martin's hamstring issue is official behind him. He'll face a big test when the Seattle Seahawks come calling to Raymond James Stadium in Week 12. Treat him more as a flex fantasy option in that matchup.
Jameis Winston - QBPosted 11/20/16 7:16pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 24 of his 39 pass attempts for 331 yards, one touchdown and no interception in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also ran five times for 22 yards.
Huddle Up: Winston has back-to-back 300-yard performances and at least one touchdown strike in each of his past six games, and nine of 10 games overall. He has emerged as a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy formats. The Bucs host the Seahawks in Week 12 in a bit of a difficult matchup.
Cameron Brate - TEPosted 11/19/16 6:31pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate has caught a touchdown in three straight games, and he said the offense is using the tight end in more ways than it was at the start of the year.
Huddle Up: With his effectiveness in the red zone and a growing role in the offense, Brate is worth a look as a low-end TE1 in deeper leagues.
Jacquizz Rodgers - RBPosted 11/18/16 2:20pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) will not play in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Rodgers figures to remain sidelined indefinitely, although he did shed his walking boot earlier this week. When he is cleared to return, owners should expect him to assume the same complementary passing-down role that made Charles Sims a bit of a late-season fantasy stud last year.
Jameis Winston - QBPosted 11/18/16 7:49pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he is learning to extend plays, and 10 of his 19 touchdown passes this season have come outside the pocket.
Huddle Up: Winston will still have the occasional dud, but he has thrown multiple touchdowns in six of his nine games this year. He is a low-end QB1 in 12-team leagues against the Chiefs in Week 11.
Mike Evans - WRPosted 11/16/16 9:30am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has averaged the second-most points at the position in PPR leagues the last five weeks with 21.8 points per game.
Huddle Up: Evans was slowed last week in a good matchup against the Chicago Bears. However, he has a 27-362-4 line during the stretch. The Kansas City Chiefs aren't the daunting matchup they have been in recent years, and Evans remains in the WR1 conversation.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/13/16 7:22am ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) is expected to be active for Week 10's game against the Chicago Bears, although his workload is likely to be limited, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Martin has been sidelined since Week 2 and will be facing a tough Chicago run defense in his first game back, making him a risky play in all formats. RBs Peyton Barber and Mike James are also expected to see carries but neither player should be considered a viable fantasy option.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/13/16 8:58am ET
Confirming previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) will be active for Week 10's game against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Martin is active for the first time since Week 2 and has a somewhat unfavorable matchup this week against a Chicago defense that has been strong against the run this year. He is also expected to have a limited workload, so daily fantasy gamers should look for safer options.
Jameis Winston - QBPosted 11/13/16 2:05pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Nov. 13, in a 36-10 win over the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Winston looked quite impressive against a Bears defense that has been decent against the pass (238.1 yards per game, 12th in the NFL). He also spread the wealth, firing passes to nine different receivers. Winston's numbers are looking strong, but you may want to consider the matchups before you play him on a regular basis.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/13/16 2:21pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin ran 16 times for 33 yards and scored a 1-yard touchdown in his return to the gridiron Sunday, Nov. 13. The Buccaneers beat the Chicago Bears, 36-10.
Huddle Up: Martin wasn't expected to do much his first game back from hamstring issues, so the touchdown was a bonus. Martin will improve as time goes on, barring injury, so monitor how the team uses him,
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/12/16 12:23pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) will be active for the game Sunday, Nov. 13, against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Considering he was limited in practice this week, it's unlikely that he'll have a full load. The Bears have been good against opposing running backs, and Martin is a very risky flex option in Week 10.
