Dare Ogunbowale Sees First-Team Work Sunday

Buccaneers running back Dare Ogunbowale saw first-team reps with Ronald Jones II (knee) out for the time being. The injury to Jones II is not seen as serious, but it is telling from Ogunbowale's recent workload that he is very likely to make the final 53-man roster as the third-string back. It would not be...

Emanuel Hall Claimed by Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed wide receiver Emanuel Hall off of waivers earlier this week. Hall had been with the Bears earlier but could not make it through camp. The Buccaneers present a solid opportunity given their lack of depth beyond starters Mike Evans and Chris Godwin along with Hall's fit in their new offense.... Read More

Buy or Sell: Undervalued and Overvalued Players for Week 21

Today's piece covers a set of players who either should not be available on waivers or will return back there soon. Most of the earlier editions of this recurring buy or sell article have included several universally owned players whose values have been manipulated enough by early-season performances. Unfortunately, as we get deeper into the year, the... Read More

Cameron Brate Catches One Pass Friday

Buccaneers veteran tight end Cameron Brate was not very involved in this game but did manage to haul in his lone target for eight yards. Brate is the forgotten man on the Bucs, particularly due to the emergence of the former first-round tight end, O.J. Howard. Brate is still a capable TE who would start... Read More

Dare Ogunbowale Gets 16 Touches Friday

Buccaneers rookie running back Dare Ogunbowale rushed the ball 13 times for 36 yards and caught three passes for 54 yards Friday against the Dolphins. This was the second week in a row that Ogunbowale saw heavy usage and that could bode well for his chances of making the final 53-man roster. In week one,... Read More

Matt Gay Outperforming Cairo Santos in Preseason

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are having a competition between kickers Matt Gay and Cairo Santos. Thus far, neither has missed a kick, however, Gay has been presented more field goal opportunities and has not disappointed yet. Gay has hit from 48 and 55 yards while Santos has just one for 23 yards. Gay's ability to... Read More

Buccaneers Defense Not a Fantasy Option in 2019

This is fairly obvious given how poor the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense has been over the past few seasons, but it is still worth pointing out even with the Bucs additions throughout the offseason. They essentially replaced Gerald McCoy with Ndamukong Suh, Kwon Alexander with Devin White and upgraded their secondary with several mid-round defensive... Read More

Andre Ellington Fumbling Preseason Opportunities

Buccaneers running back Andre Ellington has carried the ball 10 times for just 24 yards and caught five passes for 20 yards throughout these past two preseason games. On top of disappointing yardage totals, he also fumbled away the ball on Friday against Miami. Ellington's disappointing showing thus far could play into whether he makes... Read More

Justin Watson Fairly Involved Throughout Preseason

Buccaneers wide receiver Justin Watson has seen seven and six targets through his first two preseason games. He totaled 37 yards on four catches week one and 22 yards on two catches in week two. Watson figures to replace Adam Humphries as the Buccaneers' slot receiver in 2019, but might not be as skilled as... Read More

Bruce Anderson Does Not Do Much With Four Touches Friday

Buccaneers rookie running back Bruce Anderson amassed three yards on three carries Friday and one catch that went for six yards. Anderson was a popular late-round dart throw in fantasy circles prior to the preseason but there has been hardly anything to work with through these first two games (one target and no other stats...

Mike Evans Hardly Plays Against Dolphins

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was targeted just once Friday and ended the game without posting any stats. Evans did not dress for last week's preseason game but saw the field just a bit against Miami. He probably sees more than one drive next week given that the third week of preseason is historically the... Read More

O.J. Howard Only Targeted Twice Friday

Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard was targeted twice and hauled in one catch for 16 yards Friday against the Dolphins. This was only the second game of the preseason which makes sense as to why he was not heavily involved ankle injury cut his 2018 short and the last thing Tampa wants is for him... Read More

Breshad Perriman Reels in Just One Catch Friday

Buccaneers wide receiver Breshad Perriman saw two targets on Friday but only caught one for 11 yards. His other target was a deep shot which sailed over his head and into the end-zone. Can't blame him for not bringing that in but it is disappointing that there were not more opportunities for him on Friday.... Read More

Blaine Gabbert Doesn't Do Anything Wrong Against Steelers

Buccaneers quarterback Blaine Gabbert was decent against the Steelers on Friday. He went six-for-eight and accumulated 50 passing yards while starting most of the first half. Gabbert is set as Jameis Winston's backup going into the 2019 season but presents no fantasy value even if he has to take over for any reason. The only... Read More

Peyton Barber Runs Strong on Friday

Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber had a solid showing in his first taste of preseason action in 2019. Barber amassed 18 yards on just three carries and caught one pass for four yards. He started the game but split rushing duties with Ronald Jones II and will presumably continue to do so into the season... Read More

Ronald Jones II Shows Signs of Life Against Steelers

Buccaneers second-year running back Ronald Jones II looked spry against the Steelers defense. Although he did not break out for any big runs, his attempts were productive. Jones II showed some of that wiggle he used to have back in college and is reportedly in much better shape than last season. He finished the day... Read More

Chris Godwin Done After Touchdown

Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin took over WR1 duties with Mike Evans sitting out Friday's preseason opener against the Steelers. Godwin caught both of his targets for 20 yards and a score. His touchdown catch was off of a bubble screen where he evaded would-be-tacklers on the perimeter on his way to the end-zone. His... Read More

Jameis Winston Done After One Drive

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston started Friday's preseason game against the Steelers and led them for just one series. Winston looked poised and made good decisions in his limited snaps. He went five-for-six and threw for 40 yards and one touchdown. Most impressively, Winston evaded two defenders and rolled out with his eyes downfield to convert... Read More

The Detroit Pistons have signed veteran power forward Markieff Morris. The Pistons starting frontcourt of Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond is due to take up most of the minutes there, however, Morris should fill in across the forward/center lines throughout the year. He used to play a little bit of small forward and could potentially... Read More

Suns Trade De'Anthony Melton and Josh Jackson to Grizzlies

The Phoenix Suns have just been swindled out of one of their better young assets in De'Anthony Melton for the sole reason of dumping Josh Jackson. Jackson, the former fourth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft has had troubles, on and off the court, and now finds himself in a new home with an... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 7) - Targets and Avoids

Another week, more upsets. The Cowboys, Chiefs and Chargers all went down knocking out about 15-20 percent of remaining entrants in survivor pools, including myself.

While Tannehill wasn't noticeably better on Sunday, throwing... Read More

We Must Overreact Immediately! Week 6 Outliers

In Week 6, several players exploded in fantasy lineups. There were a few receivers that were above the rest of the pack in Week 6, such as Stefon Diggs, Terry McLaurin, Chris Godwin and Tyreek Hill, but there shouldn't be any surprises there as those guys should have been in fantasy lineups. At the quarterback... Read More
