Tampa Bay Buccaneers news, rumors and injuries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston knows that he needs to limit his turnovers moving forward. He turned the ball over five times (four interceptions) in the loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 4, and they led to 27 points for the opposition. Winston has completed 73 of 133 passes for 965 yards with six touchdowns and seven interceptions through four games. He'll face a Jacksonville Jaguars defense in Week 5 that ranks 26th against the pass by allowing 278.5 yards per game.
Fantasy Tip: Rookie quarterbacks always have their ups and downs, and it'll be no different with Winston ($5,900, 11.8% of cap), especially with a struggling offensive line and running game. He's an attractive sleeper pick on FantasyScore in Week 5, though, against a lackluster Jags defense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OG Logan Mankins (groin) didn't practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is questionable for Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. DT Gerald McCoy (shoulder) and TE Luke Stocker (hip) were limited all week and are questionable. CB Johnthan Banks (knee) and WR Russell Shepard (hamstring) didn't practice all week and are doubtful. SS Major Wright (abdomen) practiced all week and is probable.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Myers ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) only had one catch last week and isn't a FantasyScore option worth using.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like ASJ is trending toward not playing this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Brandon Myers ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) only had one catch last week and isn't a FantasyScore option worth using.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has been at his best when running the no-huddle offense this year, and offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said he hasn't ruled out running more of an up-tempo offense. "Jameis is definitely playing better in no-huddle," Koetter said. "Obvious next question is, why aren't you going no-huddle more? You can't do everything you want to do game plan-wise out of no-huddle ... We probably should be doing no-huddle more."
Fantasy Tip: Although a change in offensive philosophy could help Winston ($5,900, 11.8% of cap), the Buccaneers can't exactly run the no-huddle offense the entire game. Until he has his turnover issues under control, Winston needs to be avoided at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Seferian-Jenkins ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has missed some time because of the injury and may not be able to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5. Owners can keep an eye out on the situation but should have other options ready to use.

Fantasy Tip: Barth isn't a good option at kicker with the state of the offense right now, but he could be a matchup play later.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully Brindza wasn't owned in many fantasy football leagues. If he was, you should cut him immediately and look for another kicker.

Fantasy Tip: Winston ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has seven interceptions through four games, and it is looking like it will be a long year for the rookie. Look elsewhere at FantasyScore if you want to save cap space.
