Fantasy Tip: It will be the fifth consecutive game on the sidelines for the Muscle Hamster. In his place, expect Jacquizz Rodgers to once again carry the load as a potential RB1. He's logged two straight 100-yard efforts on the ground in Martin's absence.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will square off against the Oakland Raiders in Week 8. Oakland has allowed 302.1 yards per game through the air, worst in the NFL, while giving up 32 pass plays of 20 or more yards and nine or more pass plays of 40 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Winston is a solid streaming option in fantasy leagues if you're primary option has a difficult matchup or bye week, as he should throw for high yardage and multiple touchdowns against a shoddy pass defense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 8. The Raiders have allowed 302.1 yards per game through the air, worst in the NFL. The Raiders have also allowed 32 pass plays of 20 or more yards, most in the NFL, and they're tied for the NFL lead with nine pass plays of 40 or more yards.
Fantasy Tip: Evans is in line for a giant fantasy performance, and if he doesn't hit triple digits in yardage with at least one touchdown it would be a huge disappointment.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's status for Week 8 will not be known until later in the week, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Martin may be eased back into the lineup if he is active this week and would be a risky option. Jacquizz Rodgers would receive another start if Martin is ruled out and could be a No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: If you drafted Martin, you don't have much choice but to wait it out. Jacquizz Rodgers is playing well in his place, and the team can afford to pump the brakes to avoid another re-injury. Rodgers is a solid RB3 if you own him.

Fantasy Tip: Shepard was the 'next man up', not Adam Humphries, with Vincent Jackson hitting the Reserve/Injured list this week. If you need a bye-week replacement in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders, Shepard might not be a bad stream option in deeper leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted eight receptions for 96 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 7 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted 13 times, the only receiver in the game with double-digit targets.
Fantasy Tip: Evans just missed out on a 100-yard receiving bonus, and that's about the only thing fantasy owners can complain about. He has scored at least once in five of his six games this season, and has totaled six touchdowns while snagging at least five receptions in each outing. The WR1 faces another favorable matchup with the Oakland Raiders visiting in Week 8.
