Fantasy Tip: Injuries to the receiving corps will likely thrust Huff into a sizeable role in Tampa Bay's passing attack against a weak Saints defense in Week 14, but he will no more than a shot-in-the-dark DFS option in his team debut.

Fantasy Tip: Sims' role on offense is uncertain at this point, but he should receive some touches in Week 14. Owners probably should avoid using Sims this week and can find more reliable options for their lineups.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers FS Chris Conte (chest), OT Demar Dotson (concussion) and TE Luke Stocker (ankle) have been ruled out for Week 14. DT Gerald McCoy (foot) and C Evan Smith (knee) are listed as questionable. Conte, Dotson and Stocker did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 9. McCoy was limited during practice, while Smith fully participated in practice. CB Alterraun Verner (non-injury) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: There was thought Humphries could play this week after getting in a pair of limited practices over the prior two days, but apparently, that won't be the case. With Humphries sidelined, Freddie Martino and Russell Shepard stand to benefit the most, but really might only be options for really deep formats. Tight end Cameron Brate also figures to draw some extra looks, which should further solidify him as a fine TE1 option.

Fantasy Tip: It bodes well for his chances to suit up in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints, as it appears he may be cleared later today. With Vincent Jackson and Cecil Shorts already done for the season, the Bucs could definitely use another pair of trusty hands besides Mike Evans and tight end Cameron Brate. Humphries should not be starting in most fantasy leagues, however.

Fantasy Tip: Humphries will likely be the No. 2 receiver for Tampa Bay in Week 14, and a friendly matchup with New Orleans makes him potential sleeper in DFS games.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Luke Stocker (ankle), FS Chris Conte (chest), OT Demar Dotson (concussion), DT Gerald McCoy (foot) and CB Alterraun Verner (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 8. C Evan Smith (knee) was a limited participant.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin suffered a minor injury in the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers, giving way to RB Jacquizz Rodgers more in the fourth quarter. Rodgers may cut into Martin's touches this week, depending on the game flow and level of production early on, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners never want to hear about a potential scaling back of a role, but Martin could be in for fewer touches. The Saints are so-so against the rush, allowing 97.9 yards per game with 13 touchdowns in 12 games. Martin should be treated as more of a low-end RB2 this weekend.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers might see added playing time in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints. "It was good to get him back," offensive coordinator Todd Monken said Wednesday, Dec. 7. "I would assume he'll only be better this week in a little more of an expanded role."
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was lighting it up before his injury, but that was also when Doug Martin and Charles Sims were on the shelf. He now has Martin and Sims to contend with for touches. Still, Rodgers is worth a look again in deeper PPR leagues, especially against a porous Saints pass defense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Luke Stocker (ankle), S Chris Conte (chest), OT Demar Dotson (concussion), DT Gerald McCoy (foot) and CB Alterraun Verner (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7. C Evan Smith (knee) was limited.

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.
