Buccaneers | Gerald McCoy unlikely to play

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 11:27:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (hand) is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Sept. 18. McCoy fractured his hand just four days ago, and he said that playing too soon increased the risk of making the injury worse. With McCoy out, DT Da'Quan Bowers will have a chance to make his presence felt.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin unlikely to play

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 09:43:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is unlikely to play in the team's Week 3 game due to a knee injury, according to a league source. Martin will test the knee out pregame to be sure.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Martin should not be considered in FantasyScore. Bobby Rainey was scheduled to get the start anyway, and may see even more work if Martin is indeed ruled out. With a FantasyScore price of $4,700 (9.4% of cap), Rainey is a great option.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey to start

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 07:33:34 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey will start in Week 3. The decision is not primarily because of RB Doug Martin's (knee) injury, but also because the team really likes Rainey.

Fantasy Tip: Martin will still be involved, but his stock in the near term has fallen considerably. Rainey ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap) is a better play on FantasyScore than Martin ($5,900; 11.8%) right now.

Buccaneers | Tampa to use RB committee

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 06:20:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) and RB Bobby Rainey are expected to split carries in Week 3 and in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has more upside than Rainey, but Rainey has the hot hand. Martin ($5,900; 11.8% of your cap) and Rainey ($4,700; 9.4%) are good flex options this week on FantasyScore. Rainey might be the better play of the two with Martin coming off of an injury.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins ruled out

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:10:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and has been ruled out for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Myers probably will receive most of the work at tight end during the game but should not be an option for owners in any league.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin questionable

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:09:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has a good chance to play in Week 3 but could be limited because of the injury. Martin costs $5,900 on FantasyScore this week, but may be too expensive for owners since he could share reps with Bobby Rainey during the game. At $4,700 on FantasyScore, Rainey could be a better option to use.

Buccaneers | Pursuing Brian Urlacher?

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:32:02 -0700

With an injury to LB Mason Foster, rumors have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pursuing free agent LB Brian Urlacher (Bears). Urlacher resigned Tuesday, Sept. 16, from his Fox Sports 1 analysis job, fueling the speculation. Sources say a signing, if one happens at all, would not occur this week.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin limited at practice

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 14:10:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) was limited at practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: All signs are pointing to Martin playing in Week 3 Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons, but how many touches he'll see remains to be seen, especially after Bobby Rainey performed well in his absence in Week 2. It seems foolish to play Martin for $5,900 at FantasyScore when you could go with the much safer play in Rainey for $4,700.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins a no-go

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 13:57:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) did not practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Seferian-Jenkins sat out of Week 2 due to his ankle injury, and it doesn't look like he'll be suiting up on a short week against the Atlanta Falcons. Avoid using him in your lineups everywhere.
