Adam Humphries Sees Season High in Targets

Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries was as remarkable as ever (in PPR leagues). He caught 10 passes on 12 targets for 79 yards on Sunday. This was his first "good" game in weeks but it couldn't have come at a better time for anyone willing enough to start him. He's been a target hog throughout... Read More

Jameis Winston Does Just Enough in Week 16

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was fairly average in Week 16. With 335 yards and just one touchdown, Winston probably wasn't a difference maker in Championship matchups (if started). High passing yard volume and low touchdown totals have plagued Winston owners for years now along with the turnovers. Winston fumbling twice on Sunday is nothing new... Read More

Adam Humphries Could Be Flexed This Weekend

Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries has some flex appeal against the Cowboys. Dallas has a slight weakness in the slot and the Buccaneers could exploit it this weekend. Humphries has been the Bucs' most reliable WR over the past two months despite skidding recently. He's an okay start in PPR leagues and can be avoided... Read More

DeSean Jackson and Chris Godwin Should Be Benched in Week 16

Buccaneers wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Chris Godwin should not be started against the Cowboys this Sunday. With Jackson healthy, Godwin's target share is likely to take a hit. Jackson already is fairly boom-or-bust and could go off this weekend as he typically does against his ex-rival Cowboys, but just coming off an injury, he... Read More

Mike Evans a Start Despite Matchup

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is a native of Dallas and gets to play back home for the second time in his professional career. This is not some guarantee that he will perform well (as he was fairly mediocre there in 2016), but with the current state of skill players in Week 16, it's doubtful... Read More

Jameis Winston a Risky Start this Week

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is a tough sell as a starter this weekend against the Cowboys. Although Andrew Luck seemed to rip through their defense last weekend, he didn't even manage double-digit fantasy points while at home. Winston heads into Dallas to face one of the hottest defenses in the league that is playing for... Read More

As an addendum to our famous waiver wire pickups list, and our weekly waiver wire columns by position, in this column we also present suggested waiver wire bidding percentages for fantasy football owners in leagues using a Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB). Finals week is here and that FAAB is as close to useless as... Read More

Chris Godwin Puts Up Another Dud

Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin has been an absolute disappointment these past two weeks. He was supposed to step up with DeSean Jackson out due to the increase in target share but that has not resulted in any production. Over his past two games, Godwin has 13 targets, one catch, and 10 yards. That's it.... Read More

Mike Evans Salvages Day With One Huge Catch

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has been a disappointment in the second half of the season but had one of his better outings in Week 15. A 64-yard catch in the middle of the game saved his line for the day as he only managed four catches for 121 yards on nine targets. This was... Read More

Jameis Winston Underperforms in Wet Conditions

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston had a tough time passing the ball in Week 15. The weather along with a tough Ravens defense held Winston to just 157 yards with no touchdowns and a pick. This was Winston's worst matchup and performance since the Bears' game earlier in the year. Winston's next matchup in Dallas will... Read More

Don't Bother With the Buccaneers' Defense

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defense is bad. Despite what we've seen in recent weeks, there is enough evidence to suggest that they're more likely to remain bad than turn a corner. They had a great day against the 49ers and took advantage of an injured Cam Newton but with the Ravens coming up, they should... Read More

Adam Humphries Should Be in PPR Lineups

Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries had a down week against the Saints but should bounce back in Week 15. Humphries will likely be matched up with Brandon Carr in the slot and have a decent amount of opportunities to beat him. The only cause for concern aside from the pressure that Jameis Winston will face... Read More

Cameron Brate Could Be Started Against Ravens

Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate is one of Jameis Winston's favorite targets in the end zone. Brate scored twice against the Saints in Week 14 (his only two receptions of the game) and has three TDs in the three games that O.J. Howard has missed. Unfortunately, Brate is only preferable in standard leagues due to... Read More

Chris Godwin a WR3 Solely on Volume

Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin was a major disappointment in Week 14. He was targeted 10 times and only managed to haul in one catch. The Ravens present one of the Buccaneers toughest challenges yet and will make life rough for their wideouts. Godwin has been a target-hog with DeSean Jackson out of commission. With... Read More

Mike Evans Faces Tough Test Sunday

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has a difficult assignment this weekend against the Ravens' secondary. Marlon Humphrey presents a tough matchup on the opposite side of the field which could really hurt Evans' numbers. He's had difficulty in recent weeks putting up WR1 lines against much weaker secondaries, therefore, if you're so inclined, benching him... Read More

Jameis Winston a Fade in Baltimore

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston faces his toughest test in months this Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens are undoubtedly one of the best defenses in football and should be able to mitigate the Buccaneers' passing attack. While the Ravens have given up several solid fantasy outings to quarterbacks this season, that can be attributed to the talent... Read More

RotoBaller NBA Recap: Going Harden The Paint

Welcome to the RotoBaller NBA Recap. In this feature, we highlight three fantasy basketball takeaways from last night's slate of NBA games. There really was not much to get excited about in Thursday's four-game slate. The coolest thing was Chicago vs. Orlando playing in Mexico. The most surprising thing was that the Suns won. Unfortunately,... Read More

Chris Godwin Disappoints With 10 Targets

Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin faltered in his time to shine. Godwin was targeted 10 times with DeSean Jackson out but only came up with one catch for 13 yards. His day was improbably bad. Fellow Buc Mike Evans put up a similar 10 target, one catch line earlier in the year against the Panthers... Read More

Mike Evans Does Alright Against Saints

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was average, at best, on Sunday. In his first matchup against New Orleans, Evans went off, but this time around it was different. With just 86 yards on four catches, Evans contributed but not could have done better. The Saints allow the most points to WRs and this... Read More

Jameis Winston Performs Well For Fantasy Purposes

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston had a very solid fantasy stat line Sunday against New Orleans. With 213 passing yards, 47 rushing, two touchdowns, and just one interception, Winston put up over 20 fantasy points in most, if not all leagues. Although the Bucs' offense faltered in the second half of the game, Winston... Read More

RotoBaller NBA Recap: Derrick Favors the Bench

Welcome to the RotoBaller NBA Recap. In this feature, we highlight three fantasy basketball takeaways from last night's slate of NBA games. Thursday night featured a typical short slate of games. This week was quite underwhelming with three blowout wins for Boston, Portland, and Utah. With so many fantasy irrelevant bench players playing, most of... Read More

Chris Godwin in Play as a Starter Against Saints

Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is not a bad option to start for Week 14. Of course you would traditionally want someone a little more reliable in your starting lineup come playoff time, however, Godwin has been eating with DeSean Jackson absent. Godwin has put up 310 yards and two touchdowns in the three games... Read More

Adam Humphries Has Big Upside This Week

Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries has emerged out of nowhere these past two months. Humphries has been a top-10 WR since Week 8. It's astonishing given the talent that was present in that Buccaneers receiving core but now it's to be expected with the absence of O.J. Howard and DeSean Jackson. Humphries has been a... Read More

Jameis Winston Faces Stout Saints Sunday

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has his toughest test since Chicago coming up. The New Orleans' defense has been revamped since they first played Tampa. Marcus Davenport, Sheldon Rankins and the rest of them have gotten better as the season's progressed. Winston did not have the opportunity to play New Orleans in Week 1 due to... Read More

Mike Evans Looks to Repeat Week 1 Performance on Sunday

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was stellar in the first game of the season against New Orleans. The stud WR1 scored over 20 fantasy points and caught all seven targets that came his way. Unfortunately, circumstances are different this weekend. The game will not be played in a dome, Ryan Fitzpatrick will not be slinging... Read More

Adam Humphries Goes Off Once More

Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries has been fantastic over the past two months. He is putting up top-10 PPR numbers on a weekly basis and it is probably the biggest surprise of the year. Humphries caught seven passes on nine targets for 67 yards and a touchdown. He has settled in as a reliable every-week... Read More

Peyton Barber Finds End Zone Sunday

Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber was serviceable Sunday against Carolina. With 45 yards and a touchdown, Barber had himself a low-end RB2 day. The only issue was his fumble at the goal-line. Barber was a sit for me this week but ended up being productive-ish. Barber is just so hard to trust but with the... 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.

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
