Buccaneers | Charles Sims will be featured

Sat, 23 May 2015 15:17:07 -0700

Tampa Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is viewed very highly by coaches, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Sims is likely to feature very prominently in the passing game. Sims averaged 10.0 yards per reception on 19 catches last season, showing promise in an area of the game in which Doug Martin struggles mightily. Sims should be available in the late rounds of 2015 fantasy drafts, and he has the ability to wind up as an RB2.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston learning quickly

Sun, 10 May 2015 20:34:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was praised by head coach Lovie smith for his ability to learn the playbook. "He's been cramming like it's a final exam, and he's doing a good job of it," Smith said. "We've seen marked improvement from the moment we gave him his playbook. Jameis is a bright guy. He'll be able to get it all."

Fantasy Tip: It is no surprise to hear Smith supporting his young quarterback in the early going. Winston should be considered a QB2 heading into his rookie season.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston files counterclaim

Sat, 09 May 2015 23:15:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston filed a counterclaim against Erica Kinsman, the woman who originally sued Winston for sexual assault.

Fantasy Tip: Winston will try not to make this an issue on the field, but you have to wonder if this would impact his production and mental preparation if the case was tried just prior to the season starting. Winston will have the chance to step in, learn the system and start right away, but monitor this situation.

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.

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.
