Sat, 15 Jul 2017 10:02:42 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy saw time at right defensive end during minicamp in June, and the team hopes to use him in that spot on occasion when it uses a 3-4 defensive front this season.

Buccaneers | Jeremy McNichols working with receivers coach

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 18:30:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers fifth-round RB Jeremy McNichols told NFL Total Access during a recent interview he is working "daily" with his receivers coach.

Fantasy Tip: McNichols was generally recognized as a player who was already very good in the passing game coming out of the draft, but this nugget could suggest the rookie could get be groomed to take over Charles Sims's role as a third-down/change-of-pace back in Tampa Bay. Then again, it could be nothing more than getting back up to speed after missing spring practices recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum. At this point, he is little more than a late-round flyer.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans not expected to have big spike

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 09:40:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans isn't expected to make a big jump in numbers with the addition of WR DeSean Jackson. "I'm not sure (how much better he can get) from a numbers standpoint, but Mike's confidence is at an all-time high right now,'' head coach Dirk Koetter said. "And I think with Mike, like with a lot of our guys, the main goal is to win, not create stats. The goal is to win games.''

Fantasy Tip: Evans solidified himself as a WR1 last season with a 96-1,321-12 line. There isn't much room for improvement there, and if the team is cautioning expectations, it's a good idea to do so from a fantasy expectation. Evans is still in the WR1 window and can be considered after the first few are off the board.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston pumped to have O.J Howard

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 19:30:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said TE O.J. Howard is going to do "amazing" things for the offense. "This is the fastest, most athletic 6-6, 255 guy I've ever seen in my life," Winston said Saturday, July 1. "It's unreal."

Fantasy Tip: Howard's physical tools are off the charts, but he is likely going to be involved some type of timeshare with Cameron Brate, making Howard an upside TE2 in redraft leagues.

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.
