Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Baker Mayfield is expected to be a target of the Atlanta Falcons in free agency if the team can't acquire Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields in a trade, per sources on Saturday, March 2.
Huddle Up: Mayfield revived his career with the Buccaneers in 2023 and should garner interest from QB-needy teams if he doesn't return to Tampa Bay. He makes a ton of sense for Atlanta, a team that has a major question mark under center ahead of next season. Mayfield should be viewed as a QB2 entering 2024.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent WR Mike Evans is still talking with the Buccaneers about a new contract but plans to test the free-agent market before he signs a contract, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Evans likely will receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. He will be a starter no matter where he signs this offseason and will be a weekly option in all fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Baker Mayfield could have the Atlanta Falcons as a dark horse option to sign him.
Huddle Up: Mayfield had a resurgent season last year and was on the apex of QB1/QB2 thanks to significant injuries at the position. He'll be a QB2/matchup play wherever he signs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is due to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year next month, but general manager Jason Licht made it clear on Tuesday, Feb. 27, that the team is "going to do whatever we can to make sure he's a Buc."
Huddle Up: With the league recently announcing the salary cap will take a $30 million hike in 2024, it certainly should increase Tampa Bay's chances of retaining the only receiver ever to begin his career with 10 straight 1,000-yard seasons. However, the change at offensive coordinator from Dave Canales to Liam Coen may result in a slight hit to his fantasy stock next season - assuming he is re-signed.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Baker Mayfield has had preliminary talks with the team about a new contract, according to sources Friday, Feb. 23. Mayfield is slated to be an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins in March.
Huddle Up: Mayfield averaged 16.1 fantasy points per game and finished a week as a QB1 in eight of his games during the 2023 season. His best fit likely is returning to the Bucs on a new deal where he would be viewed as a high-end QB2 option for fantasy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and the team remain far apart in contract negotiations Monday, Feb. 19, where there's a soft deadline to get a deal done. The Buccaneers will incur $7.4 million in dead money if a deal isn't struck Monday, and Evans is leaning toward free agency.
Huddle Up: Evans was the WR7 in PPR leagues at age 30. He'll be a good WR2 target with some regression expected in 2024.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Baker Mayfield is expected to be a candidate for the franchise tag this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Buccaneers have multiple options for the tag, but Mayfield may be the biggest candidate for the tag if the two sides are not able to reach a long-term agreement. He is coming off a very good season but probably will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2024.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin is expected to play much more often in the slot in 2024, according to comments made by new offensive coordinator Liam Coen.
Huddle Up: While a return to the slot on more of a full-time basis does not mean Godwin should be expected to return to push for 100 catches again, it also does not rule it out. Coen is a product of the Sean McVay coaching tree and has seen his share of primary slot receivers have career years in that offense (Wan'Dale Robinson at Kentucky and Cooper Kupp, to name a couple). A more slot-heavy role should allow Godwin to be much more consistently productive in 2024, so he should be viewed as a high-upside WR3 at worst for now.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent WR Mike Evans is expected to land a contract that pays between $25 to $30 million a year, according to reports.
Huddle Up: Evans has been the model of consistency throughout his career, topping 1,000 yards in each of his 10 seasons. He has 94 touchdowns in that span, scoring 13 or more times in three of the last four years. Wherever he plays in 2024, Evans should be the No. 1 option and a WR1 candidate for fantasy owners.
