Buccaneers | Jameis Winston undervalued

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 16:22:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston amassed more than 4,200 total yards and 28 total touchdowns in his rookie campaign last year.

Fantasy Tip: Winston did struggle with interceptions, throwing 15, but that's normal for a rookie. He finished as the No. 13 scoring quarterback in 2015, just behind Aaron Rodgers, but is only being drafted as the No. 20 so far this offseason. The sophomore quarterback could even improve this year with another offseason under his belt.

Buccaneers | More touches for Charles Sims?

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:05:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is expected to see more carries in 2016, in the opinion of PewterReport.com's Mark Cook.

Fantasy Tip: Doug Martin just re-upped on a huge deal, and it's unlikely he's going to lose too much playing time. He's a low-end RB1 in fantasy, and Sims is a nice handcuff RB4.

Buccaneers | Cameron Brate a red zone weapon

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 09:37:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate emerged as a favorite target of QB Jameis Winston last year, and head coach Dirk Koetter has been impressed with the tight end in the red zone this offseason. Brate caught 23 passes for 288 yards last year and scored three touchdowns when TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was injured. Brate will battle with Seferian-Jenkins for a starting position in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: ASF is the superior athlete and incumbent starter, but his offseason didn't get off on the right foot, as he was dismissed from a practice last week by Koetter for not knowing what he was doing on offense. Brate has a real chance to make some noise and gain starter reps, so you may want to downgrade Seferian-Jenkins for now as more of a TE2. Stay tuned.

Buccaneers | Kenny Bell fighting for roster spot?

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 18:18:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Kenny Bell has looked healthy and sharp in OTAs, but beat writer Greg Auman believes Bell still isn't a lock to make the final roster.

Fantasy Tip: Bell would likely be the team's No. 3 receiver if he makes the roster, but he would be fourth or fifth in line for targets. He can be left on waivers for the time being.

Buccaneers | Seferian-Jenkins dismissed from practice

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 10:04:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was dismissed from practice by head coach Dirk Koetter Thursday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what caused ASF to be dismissed from practice, but the tight end posted "moving on" on his official Twitter page. Stay tuned for more updates on this situation and whether it'll affect Seferian-Jenkins' standing with the team. All things considered in this improving offense, ASF should be a low-end TE to high-end TE2 in fantasy.

Buccaneers | Roberto Aguayo signs deal

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 11:09:27 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Roberto Aguayo, the team's second-round pick, signed his four-year contract Tuesday, June 7. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Aguayo was the best kicker in the draft and will enter 2016 as the team's kicker. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners in his rookie season and probably should not be a weekly option.

Buccaneers | Storm Johnson ready to silence doubters

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 20:37:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Storm Johnson said he isn't taking his opportunity with the Buccaneers lightly, and he said being cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars has only fueled his fire for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Johnson makes the final roster, he would need injuries to Doug Martin and Charles Simms to have a shot at fantasy relevance.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans worked with Jamies Winston

Sun, 29 May 2016 12:10:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and QB Jameis Winston have worked through countless routes together and have spent time with each other both on and off the field this offseason. Evans has been invited by Winston several times to break down film. Evans said he hasn't yet seen a work ethic like Winston's.

Fantasy Tip: The star seems to be on the rise for the Buccaneers and their offense. And despite Evans' propensity for drops, he's still a WR1 candidate in standard leagues.
