"I'm going to continue to do the same thing at the next level. I'm going to give it my all."

Fantasy Tip: It's the first time a team has traded up in the first two rounds to take a kicker since 2005. Aguayo is one talented kicker who hardly ever misses, and he should come in immediately and serve as Tampa's booter. Until we see how he fares at the NFL level, he's a low-end fantasy kicking option.

Eastern Kentucky LB Noah Spence would be coveted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if he is still available when they pick in the second round. The Buccaneers hold the eighth pick in the second round -- 39th overall.

Fantasy Tip: If he's watching from the sidelines, it's most likely minor. Evans was limited most of the preseason last year due to a hamstring issue but still delivered a solid 74-1,206-3 season. The three scores was a huge step back from the 12 in his rookie year, so this year will be big in deciphering if Evans is a WR1 or a WR2. He's a high-end WR2 in fantasy with room for more.

Fantasy Tip: Dye and Humphries will have Bell and veteran Louis Murphy to contend with for playing time. Whomever emerges as the No. 3 wideout in the offense will be worth a look as a No. 5 or 6 receiver for depth on a fantasy roster.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell (hamstring) spent the 2015 season, his rookie year, on the Reserve/Injured list due to a hamstring injury, but he stayed connected with the team while the coaching staff made a point to keep him involved in the day-to-day activity, even taking him on every road trip despite his being out. Bell is expected to compete with WRs Donteea Dye and Adam Humphries for slot duties during the spring.
Fantasy Tip: Bell is ready for his chance to make plays after missing his rookie season, and he could be a deep sleeper for fantasy owners if he is able to stay healthy and working his way into one of the top four receiver spots. Bell can also work in the return game, strengthening that unit.

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has put in work to enter the 2016 season in much better shape, and his teammates were impressed with the results during voluntary minicamp Tuesday, April 26. Winston's trainer, Tim Grover, said Winston lost 18 pounds since last year. "I was joking with him the other day. He took his shirt off, and I said 'Man, what happened to the belly?' He's got a six-pack like me. He's put in a tremendous amount of work and I think it's going to be a great year for him and this whole team," WR Mike Evans said.
Fantasy Tip: Winston was impressive in his rookie year, throwing for 4,042 yards, 22 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He also ran 54 times for 213 yards and another six scores. Less weight will make him more mobile and possibly able to become more dynamic in an offense that has plenty of weapons around him. Winston isn't a surefire QB1, but he could be in discussion as a low-end QB1 on draft day.
