Tampa Bay Buccaneers QBs Josh McCown and Mike Glennon are waiting to see who will be starting Week 8. Head coach Lovie Smith said he will see how they do this week before making a decision.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon will likely still be the starter for Week 8 at least. He's a cheap FantasyScore option at $4,200 with a decent matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:12:03 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon is expected to be the starting quarterback in Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon has played well since taking over the starting job a few weeks ago. Glennon could be a nice starting option for owners on FantasyScore looking to save some money since he only costs $4,200 and will be facing the Minnesota Vikings.
Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:08:30 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon received a vote of confidence from head coach Lovie Smith Wednesday, Oct. 15. "That came a little sooner than we thought. His play, he's played well. Yeah, we'd like to have a couple of plays (back). But looking at the overall picture on what Mike Glennon has done, he's given us a lot of hope. As far as our relationship, 'Mike, you have a big role in leading us back.' And he's accepting that challenge," Smith said. However, Smith didn't say that Glennon will necessarily remain the starting quarterback when QB Josh McCown (thumb) returns to full health.
Mon, 29 Sep 2014 12:20:02 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) may not receive his starting job back, but the team has not decided if he will start when he returns from his injury or if Mike Glennon will keep the job, according to head coach Lovie Smith. Smith said the team will go with whichever quarterback gives them the best chance to win.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon had a solid performance in Week 4 and could keep the job as long as he is productive. Glennon and McCown are not great options to use most weeks, and owners probably have better quarterbacks available.
Sat, 27 Sep 2014 15:46:49 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon has a good chance to start for the rest of the season, in the opinion of beat writer Greg Auman.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon has a big arm, and this could pay dividends for WR Vincent Jackson the rest of the way. Glennon doesn't have much fantasy value at this time, but he could become a matchup play.
Fri, 26 Sep 2014 21:25:43 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon remains on track to start in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers with QB Josh McCown (thumb) listed as a doubtful.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon could be a solid low-priced QB2 in FantasyScore at $5100 (or 10.2 percent of the salary cap), freeing up salary to spread across other positions.
Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:45:20 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Lovie Smith. QB Mike Glennon will start.
Fantasy Tip: McCown could return in Week 5 depending on how he responds to treatment. It's wise to avoid Glennon this weekend in all formats.
Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:05:00 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) is unlikely to need surgery on his injured right thumb. McCown is doing therapy on his thumb, and he's focused on regaining strength. He's not ruling himself out for Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the team is saying he'll miss at least one start. QB Mike Glennon is expected to start against the Steelers this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon is a cheap option at FantasyScore for $5,100 (10.2% of cap) against the Steelers, but you can probably find better options.
Fri, 19 Sep 2014 08:36:03 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) doesn't yet have a defined timetable to return, head coach Lovie Smith said. Smith also didn't address whether QB Mike Glennon would replace McCown whenever the incumbent returns.
Fantasy Tip: Neither quarterback warrants much fantasy consideration, but the loss of the veteran McCown could hurt Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans and Bobby Rainey.
Fri, 19 Sep 2014 00:15:20 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said it is too soon to tell how long QB Josh McCown (thumb) may be out following his thumb injury suffered Thursday, Sept. 18, in a 56-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Smith also didn't address whether or not QB Mike Glennon might get a chance to start at quarterback even if McCown is healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Neither quarterback warrants much fantasy consideration, but the loss of the veteran McCown could hurt Vincent Jackson and Bobby Rainey's fantasy potential.
Wed, 06 Aug 2014 22:55:41 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon, who will be the primary backup to QB Josh McCown, has been praised for his professionalism by head coach Lovie Smith.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown is likely to be the starting quarterback when the season opens. QB Mike Glennon has been pegged as the quarterback of the future and could still win the job.
Fantasy Tip: McCown serves as a QB2, and Glennon isn't worth rostering except in dynasty leagues at this point.
Wed, 21 May 2014 11:23:59 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to terms on a two-year deal with free-agent QB Josh McCown (Bears) Wednesday, March 11, according to his agent. Financial terms were not given.
Fantasy Tip: Reports earlier this offseason suggested that the Lovie Smith regime wasn't that high on Mike Glennon under center. This signing reinfornces that idea. Expect McCown and Glennon to compete for starting duties this fall. McCown, if named the starter, represents low-end QB1 value in the right matchups, but he'd be better served as your fantasy backup.
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 11:04:49 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM Jason Licht said the team wants competition for QB Mike Glennon and that he will get every chance to win the team's starting job.
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 09:37:12 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said the team will consider drafting a quarterback at No. 7 overall in the first round of the NFL Draft. Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater, Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, Central Florida QB Blake Bortles and Fresno State QB Derek Carr could all be available at that spot. Smith said it's too early to tell if QB Mike Glennon is the answer long term at quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: Remember, the previous GM and head coach in Tampa were responsible for drafting Glennon. Smith and his new staff don't seem to be as upbeat on him. Keep that in mind if the Bucs draft another signal caller and Glennon struggles in his sophomore season.
Mon, 10 Feb 2014 12:23:04 -0800

Tue, 26 Nov 2013 11:34:13 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano believes QB Mike Glennon is the long-term answer at quarterback for the team. "I think this is a guy that certainly, as long as he continues on this trajectory, is a guy you'd love to have as a quarterback for a long time," Schiano said. Glennon has excelled in his rookie year at protecting the football and completing passes downfield. He leads all rookies with 13 touchdown passes. The Bucs have won three straight and Glennon has thrown at least one touchdown in eight straight games, the longest streak for a rookie passer since Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson did it in nine straight last year.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon has looked very calm and collected in the face of a lost season for the Bucs in his rookie season. That's been pretty impressive. He's a low-end QB1 and a solid backup option to have.
Mon, 25 Nov 2013 07:32:31 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon has 10 touchdowns and one interception in the last six games. He has also improved his accuracy on deep passes, which was his top weakness coming out of college.

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 10:01:06 -0700

Thu, 03 Oct 2013 11:46:01 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon will get 12 auditions that will go into the team's decisions on whether they will draft a quarterback in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: Even with some clarity on the quarterback situation, Glennon is no more than a bye week fill-in if there is a favorable matchup.
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 09:55:17 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman was not on the sidelines during the team's Week 4 loss because head coach Greg Schiano said it was a "mutual decision." Freeman didn't dress out and watched the game from a suite with the other inactive players. QB Dan Orlovsky was the backup to QB Mike Glennon against the Arizona Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: It's gone from bad to worse for Freeman in Tampa. It's very clear now that he has no future with the team and virtually zero chance of winning the starting job back. It's now just a matter of if the Bucs can find a trade partner or if they outright release him.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 21:42:05 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon made his first career start in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals, completing 24 of his 43 pass attempts for 193 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the 13-10 loss.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon might be starting, but he is far from a fantasy starter. Even in leagues which require two starting signal callers, he is only worth using during bye weeks.
Wed, 25 Sep 2013 12:57:14 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said QB Mike Glennon will be the team's starting quarterback moving forward. "Mike's our starting quarterback from this point forward. We're moving forward and Mike's our quarterback. That's the plan, and we're going, and that's how we're going," Schiano said.
Wed, 25 Sep 2013 05:46:05 -0700
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched QB Josh Freeman in favor of QB Mike Glennon.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon is a 6-foot-7, rookie that has good vision over defenders. He's going to have some growing pains, though. One has to wonder how much this will affect Vincent Jackson, and if he can get the ball to him downfield. Doug Martin should be used heavily, but if Glennon can't get the passing offense rolling, defenses will stack the box to neutralize Martin.
Wed, 28 Aug 2013 13:33:18 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said QB Mike Glennon will start the final preseason game and will receive a significant amount of playing time. QB Dan Orlovsky said he hopes to receive playing time during the game.

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 09:21:34 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon was praised by head coach Greg Schiano, who said you can't teach the kind of poise Glennon showed.
Fantasy Tip: It would be an extreme long shot for Glennon to steal any snaps from Josh Freeman in 2013 at this point.
Fri, 09 Aug 2013 09:12:15 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said the team is planning on keeping three quarterbacks in 2013.
Fantasy Tip: It is fair to suggest the three quarterbacks on the final roster will be Josh Freeman, Mike Glennon and Dan Orlovsky with Freeman getting a majority of the snaps, health permitting.
Fri, 02 Aug 2013 10:59:56 -0700

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 17:41:02 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon is confident as training camp approaches. "I feel way ahead of where I was at the beginning of (offseason workouts)," Glennon said. "I know what's going on out here. I still have a long way to go, but over the last few weeks, when I was at home, I had a chance to go back and kind of study the playbook a little more and I feel a lot more comfortable already. But I know I have a long way to go.
"Right now, I feel like I have a general grasp of our offense. I have to get the details. That's what I'm going to try to accomplish during this preseason, knowing the details and knowing what each of the 11 guys is going to be doing on every play."
Mon, 01 Jul 2013 16:51:54 -0700
Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said he expects QB Josh Freeman to have a big year. "I believe in competition, and Mike Glennon is going to be a tremendous quarterback in his time," Schiano said. "But we have a quarterback, it's Josh Freeman. He had a really good spring. I think it's really coming together, being in this system for a second year now and hearing the things over again after being able to study it, I'm really encouraged.
"I know Mike Sullivan, our offensive coordinator, he's encouraged. We're looking forward to big things. Josh is going to have a big year."
Wed, 12 Jun 2013 07:11:46 -0700
