Fantasy Tip: The Bucs have a bye in Week 6, so you'll have to find another option next week. However, Martin is a solid RB2 in traditional leagues. You might see what kind of trade packages you can get in return.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously Jackson ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has to do more to be worth using in FantasyScore. He exploded for 147 yards and a touchdown in Week 4, but could not carry over the momentum.
Sun, 11 Oct 2015 18:08:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Evans ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has failed to post consistent numbers this season, and he hasn't really jelled as nicely with rookie Jameis Winston as nicely as FantasyScore players might like. At this point he is too expensive for the minimal returns.
Sun, 11 Oct 2015 18:07:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sims ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) saw plenty of touches, but it was Doug Martin who stole the show with 27 total touches, 158 total yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns. As long as Martin remains healthy then Sims is second fiddle and has minimal appeal in FantasyScore.
Sun, 11 Oct 2015 18:06:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Martin ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has re-emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option, as he has back-to-back 100-yard games and a total of four touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving) over the past two outings.
Sun, 11 Oct 2015 17:53:05 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 13 of his 19 pass attempts for 209 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran four times for nine yards.
Fantasy Tip: Winston ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) might have led his team to 38 points and a win, but it was mostly the run game, as the rookie quarterback's stat line was rather mediocre for FantasyScore players.
Sun, 11 Oct 2015 09:27:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Seferian-Jenkins ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) probably is a few weeks away from returning. Brandon Myers ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) probably will start at tight end but should not be a fantasy option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, and the Jaguars have allowed a running back to gain at least 80 yards from scrimmage or to score at least one touchdown in each of the first four games.
Fantasy Tip: Martin ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is coming off his best game of the year in Week 4, and he draws a friendly matchup this weekend. Martin should be one of the safer mid-priced options at FantasyScore.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OG Logan Mankins (groin) said he is not sure if he will be able play in the Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars because of his injury. Mankins said he is taking his rehab one day at a time.

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.
