Buccaneers | Cecil Shorts suffers major knee injuries

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 10:47:51 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Cecil Shorts (knee) tore his right ACL, MCL, PCL and dislocated his right knee in a Week 13 win over the San Diego Chargers.

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.

Buccaneers | Cameron Brate leads the way

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 05:17:20 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate had a game-high six catches for 86 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 Sunday, Dec. 5.

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.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin OK

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 05:16:42 -0800

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (undisclosed) came out of the game OK, Sunday, Dec. 5, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

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.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin injured late in win

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 18:30:03 -0800

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.

Buccaneers | Adam Humphries suffers concussion

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 15:28:49 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries (concussion) left the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers due to a concussion and he will not return.

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.

Buccaneers | Another full practice for Mike Evans

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:02:32 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (not injury related) got in another full practice Friday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Evans rested on Wednesday but has been a regular back at practice since then. As a result, there's no reason to be concerned with him providing his usual stellar production in Sunday's desirable matchup with the Chargers. As always, he'll enter that contest as a respectable WR1.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers practices in full again

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 12:59:32 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) was a full participant in practice for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 2. He's considered questionable to play in the team's Week 13 game Sunday, Dec. 4, against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking very likely that Rodgers will be able to make his return to action this weekend, but he'll be returning under different circumstances. Previously, Rodgers was starting at running back for the Bucs, but since then, Doug Martin has returned to reclaim his job. As a result, Rodgers will merely be playing behind him and shouldn't be relied upon in any formats.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers a full participant

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 13:42:38 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers should return to action this week, but he'll be playing behind Doug Martin. Additionally, the Bucs will probably ease Rodgers back into the swing of things after a prolonged absence. He'll have a role in the passing game, though, with Charles Sims on IR and is worth a pickup if he's available.
