Fantasy Tip: You can forget about McCown this week at FantasyScore. Mike Glennon is expected to start again, and he could be a nice, cheap option ($4,600; 9.2% of cap) against a Saints defense that hasn't stopped much of anything this year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Mason Foster (shoulder) is improving, but he is not sure if he will be available to play in the team's Week 5 game. "Getting a lot better," Foster said. "I feel good. We'll see what's going on this week."

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) may not receive his starting job back, but the team has not decided if he will start when he returns from his injury or if Mike Glennon will keep the job, according to head coach Lovie Smith. Smith said the team will go with whichever quarterback gives them the best chance to win.
Fantasy Tip: Glennon had a solid performance in Week 4 and could keep the job as long as he is productive. Glennon and McCown are not great options to use most weeks, and owners probably have better quarterbacks available.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy had six catches for 99 yards receiving in the team's Week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Murphy entered the lineup with WR Mike Evans (groin) dealing with a groin injury in the third quarter. In the preseason, Murphy had most of his repetitions with QB Mike Glennon, who is now starting.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy has familiarity with Glennon, and now he'll see plenty of playing time with Evans out two to three weeks. Consider Murphy a deep sleeper, but he'll be cheap at FantasyScore moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Louis Murphy will likely move into the starting lineup, which makes him a fringe flex option on FantasyScore. Vincent Jackson will probably receive more attention from defenses now, which could hurt his stock slightly. TE Brandon Myers could play a larger role in the offense and is a fringe option at the position. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who had 3 catches for 44 yards in Week 4, is also a benefactor and could move into the fringe/bargain bin options at tight end.

Fantasy Tip: With Doug Martin active and apparently at full strength, Rainey is a reserve again. Fantasy owners will not want Rainey in the active lineup unless Martin suffers some sort of injury again.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) was active in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he led the team with 14 carries, 40 yards and a touchdown. He also hauled in two passes for 16 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Martin looked fine, although it was tough sledding against a decent rush defense. It appears he is ready to resume his status as No. 1 tailback in Tampa, and he is once again a solid RB2 or flex play in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury is not known at this point. Owners will have to wait for an update on Evans to get a better idea on his timetable, but he will enter Week 5 as a risky play on FantasyScore.
