Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said during the NFL Annual Meeting last weekend that the team has plenty of other options aside from quarterbacks to discuss with their No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Popular thinking has the Bucs taking Florida State QB Jameis Winston with the top overall pick. "We have a good quarterback we feel like, Mike Glennon, on our roster right now," Smith said. "We realize that there are two excellent quarterbacks out there. We're kind of going through the process right now. We're trying to improve our ball club."

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith is thought to prefer Florida State QB Jameis Winston over Oregon QB Marcus Mariota for the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: Winston would have a strong fan following thanks to his Florida fan base, but the off-field issues could pose problems with Winston like they have with Johnny Manziel. Still, the release of Josh McCown makes it likely Winston would be a solid backup if he didn't win the starting job.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said the team's offensive line needs to do a better job after they rushed for a total of 66 yards in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. Smith also said the team's pass blocking wasn't at its best. "A defense can tee off on you once you can't run the football," Smith said. "We talk an awful lot about being a balanced attack. But when you can't run it consistently that hurts. Believe me, we don't want to be a team that's passing the ball that much."
Fantasy Tip: It's tough to be too excited about any of the Bucs' running back options with a poor offensive line. Charles Sims, Bobby Rainey and Doug Martin are part of a frustrating backfield in Tampa Bay. They face a pourous Cincinnati Bengals unit in Week 13, though, if you're willing to roll the dice on this running-back-by-committee.
