Buccaneers | Mike Evans approves of Jameis Winston

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:36:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has received the approval of WR Mike Evans. "He can sit in the pocket, deliver the ball and that's more opportunities for the receivers," Evans said, emphasizing his desire for a pocket passer.

Fantasy Tip: Winston's ability to be composed and pass from the pocket will benefit both Evans and Vincent Jackson, who can both spread the field and score on any play downfield. Assuming Winston starts, it could take some time for him to acclimate to the professional level, but Jackson and Evans should still be in the WR2 neighborhood with WR1 potential. Winston, meanwhile, is a backup fantasy quarterback for his rookie season, even with his valuable weapons.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans wants to improve

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:19:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans wants to improve his route running and his understanding of coverages for the 2015 season. Evans added that he has two other goals of making the playoffs and making the Pro Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Evans kind of makes it sound like he had an off season in his rookie campaign, but 68 catches for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns isn't a lot to improve on. Evans is in WR2 territory with WR1 upside if he can develop good chemistry with QB Jameis Winston.

Buccaneers | Demar Dotson will have new role on OL

Wed, 06 May 2015 13:02:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OT Demar Dotson will move to the right side of the offensive line in 2015, according to general manager Jason Licht. OT Donovan Smith will replace Dotson on the left side. Dotson said he is more comfortable playing on the right side but will do whatever he can to help Tampa Bay be successful.

Buccaneers | Kenny Bell capable of starting?

Tue, 05 May 2015 12:29:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell could play a big role this year, according to general manager Jason Licht. "His skill set is best for outside. He can stretch the field. He also has the experience of playing inside," Licht said. "We see him really making a push for contributing and playing a big role for us this year. He's got upside to be a starter as well.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has a lot of work to do in order to earn a starting role for Tampa Bay, in which case he would still be comfortably behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans. There's a lot of offseason left, but he's more of a WR5 currently.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston likely to start

Tue, 05 May 2015 05:43:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will be given every chance to start in 2015. "It's pretty difficult to say with a straight face that we're not going to give Jameis that opportunity to win it right away," general manager Jason Licht told PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio. "He's the first overall pick. We think he's very advanced in terms of his ability to play and pick up schemes and concepts and learn the playbook relative to most rookies, or any rookie we've scouted in recent history. So he's gonna have every opportunity."

Fantasy Tip: Winston will be a midrange QB2 with upside in 2015.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims likely to be featured

Mon, 04 May 2015 07:47:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is likely to be featured in the offense this season.

Fantasy Tip: Pewter Report speculates the team will trade Doug Martin before the season, which means Sims will have to compete with Bobby Rainey for touches. Sims would be a solid RB2 if he's indeed the featured back. Martin's fantasy luster plummets with these intentions known, but his value will be solid if he can at least share the load somewhere else.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin's option not picked up

Mon, 04 May 2015 06:01:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin will be an unrestricted free agent in 2016 after the team decided not to exercise his fifth-year player option Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: The oft-injured Martin will have to compete with Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey for touches in 2015. Martin has proven to be a capable fantasy RB1 when he can stay on the field, but he's not guaranteed to take the lion's share of work. He's a weak RB2, but it might be difficult to select him there. Keep an eye on this situation in training camp.
