Fantasy Tip: Humphries figures to see a bigger role in the passing game with Cecil Shorts out, that is if he clears the concussion protocol. If Humphries can't play then there will be a lot of targets going to Mike Evans and Cameron Brate this week. Even if Humphries plays, Evans and Brate are a WR1 and TE1, respectively, in a stellar matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: A very unfortunate injury in Week 13 for Shorts, as the former Jacksonville Jaguar tore his right ACL, MCL and PCL, and dislocated his knee. It's likely this also sidelines him for most or all of next year. Adam Humphries and Russell Shepard should each pick up some extra targets in his absence, though it's hard to trust any receiver in this offense for consistency outside of star Mike Evans.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (knee) is expected to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list before the team's Week 14 game against the New Orleans Saints, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.
Fantasy Tip: Sims probably will see limited snaps in the first game or two but may have a chance to reclaim his old job behind Doug Martin. Owners may want to avoid Sims in Week 14, but he could be a flex option in the last few weeks depending on his role.

Fantasy Tip: It's as bad as it sounds. One of the better slot receivers in the game a few years ago, it's fair to wonder if this will mark the end of his NFL career. At the very least, a return in 2017 seems highly unlikely for the soon-to-be 29-year-old. Tampa Bay will continue forward with Russell Shepard, Adam Humphries and Freddie Martino opposite Mike Evans.

Fantasy Tip: Brate has averaged six targets per game over the last five games, and he has three touchdowns in that time. He has worked his way into the low-end TE1 mix, but he's not a sure thing.

Fantasy Tip: Martin struggled with 17 rushes for 45 yards but salvaged his day with a touchdown in Week 13. The New Orleans Saints have been better against RBs of late, but Martin will be a strong RB2 next week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (undisclosed) left the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers late in the second half. He said he was "bent back" late in the game, which is why RB Jacquizz Rodgers saw so much time down the stretch.
Fantasy Tip: Martin ended up with 17 runs for 45 yards and a touchdown while also hauling in a 23-yard catch on his only target. When healthy he is a solid RB2 in all fantasy leagues. We'll monitor his practice status all week and let you know if he'll be available for Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Humphries finished with two grabs for 19 yards on his only two targets. He isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.
