Buccaneers | Doug Martin flashing 2015 form

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 09:12:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is receiving a ton of offseason praise from a number of sources, not the least of which is general manager Jason Licht. "(Martin) looks lean, he looks like he's finishing his runs - obviously, there is no contact in the spring - but it looks like he's finishing his runs. He looks like he's got that burst. ... He looks like the Doug Martin of 2015," Licht told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Fantasy Tip: It's important to remember Martin will miss the first three games due to suspension and doesn't boast the best track record when it comes to staying healthy. While it is entirely possible he can return to being a fantasy RB1, those two factors alone make him a risky bet and someone owners should not be trying to move up draft boards just because he is looking good in non-padded practices.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin living in weight room?

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 09:10:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin looks quicker and bulkier than he did only two or three weeks ago, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Thought to be a cut candidate earlier this spring, Martin appears primed to enjoy a bounce-back year once he is able to return from his season-opening three-game suspension. Jacquizz Rodgers, Charles Sims and rookie Jeremy McNichols figure to pick up the slack in his absence. Once Martin returns, he could easily be an upside RB2 in what should be a very good offense.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston off to historic start

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 20:25:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is the only quarterback in NFL history to throw for more than 4,000 yards and 20-plus touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Another year of experience and the additions of DeSean Jackson and O.J. Howard to the passing attack could push Winston into QB1 territory this season.

Buccaneers | Cameron Brate to remain the starter?

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 18:22:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate and QB Jameis Winston have a chemistry that is "going to be tough to dethrone," according to Trevor Sikkema of PetwerReport.com, and Sikkema believes Brate could make it difficult for TE O.J. Howard to be the No. 1 option at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Howard has long-term upside as a TE1 and is the preferred option in keeper leagues. However, Winston looked Brate's way a lot in the red zone last year, and his touchdown potential should allow Brate to remain a quality TE2 this season.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston great with tight ends

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 06:50:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has the fifth-best passer rating when targeting tight ends since he entered the league three years ago, according to Pro Football Focus. However, he is third-worst in the league when targeting other positions.

Fantasy Tip: The latter number isn't too surprising because the team hasn't had a lot of receiving options outside of Mike Evans, and Winston probably tried to force the ball to him sometimes. The addition of DeSean Jackson should help. Winston is in the conversation of a low-end QB1 in fantasy.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims to be more involved?

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 20:43:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims showed good burst in practice Thursday, June 1, according to beat writer Jenna Laine, and Laine believes Sims could be used from the slot this season and will be more involved in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: At the very least, Sims should see some action on third down as a receiver out of the backfield. His value will only go up if he also lines up as a receiver. Grab him in the later rounds of PPR formats and see how his role develops.
