Florida State QB Jameis Winston's background has been researched closely by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and according to the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers communicated directly with assistant state attorney Georgia Cappleman, who did the majority of the work regarding the claims made by Erica Kinsman against Winston.
Fantasy Tip: The Buccaneers are doing their due diligence with Winston, and while he is still expected to be a strong candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, his off-field issues could impact his stock.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has a supporter in head coach Lovie Smith. Smith said the team hasn't "seen the true Doug Martin yet." Smith also said RB Bobby Rainey is the current starting punt returner.
Fantasy Tip: Rainey hasn't done much since his outstanding rookie year in 2012 (1,454 yards, 11 touchdowns), mainly because of injuries. He'll have to contend with Rainey and Charles Sims in the backfield in 2015, too, which means it'll be tough to rely on him yet again.
