Buccaneers | O.J. Howard to focus mostly on blocking?

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 09:05:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard will most likely make his mark as a blocker - and not a receiver - early in the season, according to ESPN.com's Jenna Laine.

Fantasy Tip: Howard will likely be a Pro Bowl tight end in years to come, but he is getting overdrafted, perhaps in part due to the solid rookie year enjoyed by Hunter Henry in 2016. The Bucs want to run the ball first and foremost, while Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and Cameron Brate give Jameis Winston a solid trio of options in the passing game. Owners should be able to ignore Howard in redrafts, as he will likely be available off waivers by the time Tampa Bay is ready for him to make a fantasy impact.

Buccaneers | Roberto Aguayo struggles in preseason opener

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 07:18:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Roberto Aguayo converted a 20-yard field goal attempt in the club's preseason opener against the Cincinnati Bengals Friday, Aug. 11, but missed an extra point and a 47-yard attempt.

Fantasy Tip: Aguayo struggled throughout the 2016 preseason and only hit 71 percent of his field goal attempts during his rookie campaign. There's no guarantee Aguayo will make the 53-man roster and fantasy owners should look for more consistent options.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans busy in preseason opener

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 20:07:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes on seven targets for 58 yards in a 23-12 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Evans led the NFL in targets last season, and despite some offseason additions to the passing attack, he was still the clear No. 1 option for Jameis Winston in this one. Evans is a midrange WR1 in any format.

The surgery could happen as early as next week, although Adjei-Barimah is seeking a second opinion. The initial diagnosis would keep him sidelined for four months.

Buccaneers | Jeremy McNichols needs to study

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 13:16:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie RB Jeremy McNichols needs to "get in his playbook," according to head coach Dirk Koetter and running backs coach Tim Spencer.

Fantasy Tip: McNichols is just a rookie, and these things happen with rookies. He does have a good shot to make the team even in a crowded backfield and is worth considering in later rounds.
