Buccaneers | Adam Humphries ruled out for Week 14

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 13:47:10 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries (concussion) has been ruled out for the team's Week 14 game Sunday, Dec. 11, against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: There was thought Humphries could play this week after getting in a pair of limited practices over the prior two days, but apparently, that won't be the case. With Humphries sidelined, Freddie Martino and Russell Shepard stand to benefit the most, but really might only be options for really deep formats. Tight end Cameron Brate also figures to draw some extra looks, which should further solidify him as a fine TE1 option.

Buccaneers | Adam Humphries gets in another practice

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 10:15:41 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries (concussion) practice for the second day in a row Friday, Dec. 9, but is still awaiting final clearance from the concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: It bodes well for his chances to suit up in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints, as it appears he may be cleared later today. With Vincent Jackson and Cecil Shorts already done for the season, the Bucs could definitely use another pair of trusty hands besides Mike Evans and tight end Cameron Brate. Humphries should not be starting in most fantasy leagues, however.

Buccaneers | Adam Humphries returns

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 18:59:28 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries (concussion) returned to practice and was a limited participant Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin could see fewer touches

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 22:55:22 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers to see bigger role?

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 22:54:50 -0800

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."

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Buccaneers | Adam Humphries absent Wednesday

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 15:20:37 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries (concussion) missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Humphries figures to see a bigger role in the passing game with Cecil Shorts out, that is if he clears the concussion protocol. If Humphries can't play then there will be a lot of targets going to Mike Evans and Cameron Brate this week. Even if Humphries plays, Evans and Brate are a WR1 and TE1, respectively, in a stellar matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims expected back this week

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:27:29 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Buccaneers | Cecil Shorts suffers major knee injuries

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 10:47:51 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Cecil Shorts (knee) tore his right ACL, MCL, PCL and dislocated his right knee in a Week 13 win over the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: It's as bad as it sounds. One of the better slot receivers in the game a few years ago, it's fair to wonder if this will mark the end of his NFL career. At the very least, a return in 2017 seems highly unlikely for the soon-to-be 29-year-old. Tampa Bay will continue forward with Russell Shepard, Adam Humphries and Freddie Martino opposite Mike Evans.
