Fantasy Tip: The Buccaneers acquired Brindza earlier in the preseason and are starting the season with him. Brindza does not have much experience in the NFL, so he should only be a bye week replacement at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Kyle Brindza will be the team's kicker this season after they traded for him earlier in the preseason. He probably will not be more than a bye week replacement for owners.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) said he thinks it's smart not to play the last two preseason games with a hampered hamstring. "There's no reason to risk it," Evans said. "I've already proven myself. And this way I can just try to get back for Week 1 of the regular season." Evans added that if he had to play, he could.
Fantasy Tip: This should be an obvious move for the Buccaneers -- resting their start receiver until the games count. As Evans said, there's no reason to risk aggravating the injury. As long as he's healthy, Evans should be in contention for a WR1 position in fantasy football this year.

Fantasy Tip: Barth should be able to win the kicker job and is joining a team with a solid offense, but owners should be able to find better kicker options for their team.

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie QB Jameis Winston (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle Monday, Aug. 24, against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Lovie Smith still expects him to start Week 3 of the preseason against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: Winston has looked pretty good so far this preseason. If he can stay on the field, he may be in for a better than decent rookie campaign. He still shouldn't be drafted as a starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Fantasy Tip: Evans needs as much rest as he can get for the injury with the regular season nearing. He's an invaluable part of their offense, so it's not worth risking an aggravation. It remains to be seen how involved he'll be in practices the next few weeks. His status will need to be monitored, but he's still in low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 territory.
