Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Roberto Aguayo said Monday, Aug. 22, that he has reached out to both a kicking coach and mental coach to help him with kicking woes that have plagued him this preseason. "I'm just focusing on relaxing and sometimes not thinking about it too much," Aguayo said. "When you're overthinking like, 'OK, I have to do this and this and this,' you get too many thoughts in your head. Sometimes you have to sit back and relax and just kick it."
Fantasy Tip: The Buccaneers traded up for the former Florida State standout, and there will be growing pains with rookies. He has the potential to be a steady Fantasy kicker for years to come if he can shake off his confidence woes. For now, avoid him for fantasy purposes.

Fantasy Tip: Brate is trying to secure the starting tight end job, but Austin Seferian-Jenkins could also land the gig. Seferian-Jenkins has the much higher ceiling and is worth a late-round pick if he enters Week 1 as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Brate hasn't done much this preseason, while ASJ has generally blocked well and caught all five of his targets, suggesting the former may be on his way to delivering on his vast potential. If Seferian-Jenkins has finally "figured it out", he has high-end TE1 upside. He's well worth a late-round gamble in all fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy posted 8.5 sacks with 34 tackles (26 solo) with a pass defended and safety last season. He is a Top 50 defensive lineman in deeper fantasy leagues which use plenty of individual defensive players.

Fantasy Tip: The first-round pick might emerge as a stud fantasy option in leagues which use individual defensive players (IDP) at this rate. He is definitely one to watch, as he has passed Johnathan Banks on the team's depth chart and looks like everything as advertised.

Fantasy Tip: Evans certainly looked the part of a WR1, and he has been flying off the board at the tail end of Round 1 or early part of Round 2 in PPR fantasy formats.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed just three of his 10 pass attempts for 28 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran twice for 15 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Winston was sharp last weekend, but this was a disaster. Will it be a sophomore jinx or will he take another step forward? With weapons like Doug Martin, Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, he has the tools in place to succeed. Still, treat him more like a high-end QB2 rather than a low-end QB1 in most standard fantasy football leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ribs) will not play Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to bruised ribs. The decision is strictly precautionary and Martin is expected to play against the Cleveland Browns next week.
Fantasy Tip: Not a huge deal. The Buccaneers want their running back fresh and healthy when the regular season begins. Martin was second in the NFL in rushing yards last year (1,402), and while his PPR value is hindered by Charles Sims, he's still a borderline RB1 option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins had "probably" his best day of camp Thursday, August 18, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. He was "nearly unstoppable" during 7-on-7 red zone drills, hauling in three touchdown passes from QB Jameis Winston.
Fantasy Tip: There's no denying Seferian-Jenkins' potential, but the former second-round pick has simply struggled to stay on the field due to injury. In fact, since arriving in Tampa Bay, he's managed to suit up in only 16 of 32 ballgames. If he can just stay healthy, Seferian-Jenkins could turn out to be one of the league's breakout players in 2016. He should also easily outperform Cameron Brate, his main competition for the starting tight end spot.
