Buccaneers | Josh McCown may not regain starting job

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 12:20:02 -0700

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.

Buccaneers | Louis Murphy emerges in Week 4

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 09:49:40 -0700

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.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans out 2-3 weeks

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 08:50:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) will reportedly miss two or three weeks with a strained groin.

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.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey sees five touches

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 15:57:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey had just four rushes for two yards in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he added one catch for 16 yards.

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.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin carries load

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 15:32:37 -0700

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.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans out for game

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 12:38:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 4 and will not return to the game.

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.

Buccaneers | Josh McCown to test thumb

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 09:19:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) has a torn ligament in his thumb and will throw Monday, Sept. 29, to see if he needs surgery. McCown would be sidelined for around six weeks if he undergoes surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Glennon would continue to be the starting quarterback if McCown has to miss several weeks. Glennon likely would not be an option on FantasyScore most weeks unless he builds a good chemistry with his receivers.

Buccaneers | Mike Glennon to remain starter?

Sat, 27 Sep 2014 15:46:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon has a good chance to start for the rest of the season, in the opinion of beat writer Greg Auman.

Fantasy Tip: Glennon has a big arm, and this could pay dividends for WR Vincent Jackson the rest of the way. Glennon doesn't have much fantasy value at this time, but he could become a matchup play.

Buccaneers | Dane Fletcher making transition

Sat, 27 Sep 2014 06:44:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Dane Fletcher is working to make the transition to a different style of defense then he is used to playing. "It's been a challenge," Fletcher. "But now I feel like I have my hands around it pretty good and I'm starting to get a good grasp of it and I'm really starting to have fun with it."
