Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee, thumb), will play Sunday, Dec. 15, against the Detroit Lions, according to Jenna Laine of ESPN Saturday, Dec. 14. He is officially listed as questionable.
Huddle Up: Winston has produced much better fantasy numbers than real-world results this season. He threw for a season-high 456 yards last week against the Indianapolis Colts while matching a season-high with four touchdowns but he also threw three interceptions for the fourth time this season. He's a low-end QB1.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee, thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, but is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Winston is expected to be the starting quarterback despite the questionable tag. He has thrown nine touchdowns over the last four games but also has nine interceptions during that span. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues but is a risky option because of his interceptions.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) on Friday, Dec. 13, was ruled out of the team's Week 15 game against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: As fully expected, Evans will miss Week 15, and it likely will take a surprising turn of events for him to play in either of the Bucs' final two games. Prepare accordingly.

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (thumb) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 13, throwing the ball well, and will start Sunday, Dec. 15, against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: No fear, Winston will be back for his usual bushel of yards and TDs -- and, of course, more mind-boggling interceptions as well -- in a not so-scary matchup against the Lions. Winston won't have have one of his top weapons with WR Mike Evans out with a hamstring injury, but he's still a solid QB1 start in the fantasy playoffs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (thumb) was throwing a tennis ball during the portion of practice open to the media Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Winston is expected to play this weekend. The Detroit Lions present a midrange matchup, but thumb injuries are sketchy. Consider Winston a midrange QB1 with moderate risk.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) will miss the remainder of the 2019 season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Chris Godwin becomes the Buccaneers unencumbered No. 1 receiver, while Breshad Perriman, Justin Watson and rookie Scott Miller round out the depth chart. Perriman is the most experienced of those latter three and warrants flex consideration in the pass-happy offense of QB Jameis Winston.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (thumb) is expected to continue playing despite suffering a broken thumb during the Week 14. He may be limited during practice this week.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation during the week to see if Winston suffers any setbacks. He is a valuable fantasy option because he ranks second in the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns but is also a risky option with his 23 interceptions. He should be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues and can be used in some standard leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is likely out for the season as head coach Bruce Arians said he'd be shocked if Evans returned.
Huddle Up: Justin Watson emerged with five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown in Week 14. He'll immediately benefit from Evans' absence and should be picked up in most leagues. If you have the space, you have to hold on to Evans at least for a week to see how he recovers.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate posted four receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great day, but the touchdown was nice. He remains a solid TE2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 15 against the Detroit Lions.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard reeled in four receptions for 73 yards on five targets in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Howard has tailed off a bit this season, but he has nine grabs for 136 yards over his past two games for his most productive stretch of the season. He'll look to keep up the good work in a favorable matchup in Week 15 at Detroit.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 11 times for 34 yards in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added two catches for 19 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Barber and Ronald Jones split the backfield touches and neither really did anything of significance. Both remain decent low-end RB3 or flex fantasy options heading into Week 15 against the Detroit Lions.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed 11 times for 36 yards in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts and he had four grabs for 23 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Jones is more of a danger in the pass game than on the ground. He remains a decent low-end RB3 or flex fantasy play in PPR leagues heading into Week 15 in Detroit with lesser appeal in standard formats.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 33-of-45 passes for 456 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He also rushed for five yards and a score.
Huddle Up: It was a big game for Winston despite the interceptions, and the rushing score was a nice bonus. He faces another fantastic fantasy option against the leaky pass defense of the Detroit Lions in Week 15.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 14 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to check after the game to see how long Evans may be sidelined because of the injury. Evans is a must-start option when healthy, but players may need to plan to be without him next week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (shin) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Godwin has been one of the top receivers in the NFL this season and should receive plenty of targets this week. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Winston has thrown 22 touchdowns this season but also has 20 interceptions in 12 games. He should have some success in the passing game this week against the Indianapolis Colts but may not be a starting option in standard leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is currently playing out his fifth-year option on his rookie contract, and head coach Bruce Arians says it's still to be determined if Winston will be offered a new contract to return to the team in 2020. 'I'm gonna pass on that one. I'm gonna wait until the end of December,' Arians said at a news conference Wednesday, Dec. 4. 'There's been really, really good. And there's been some really, really bad.... I'm just going to pass until it's over. And then, we'll make a decision.'
Huddle Up: Buoyed by a stong cast of pass-catchers, Winston currently ranks second in the league in passing yards with 3,659 through 12 games and currently ranks fifth among fantasy QBs with 292.9 total points. Winston, though, has thrown a league-most 20 interceptions -- five more than any other QB -- and continues to make several head-scratching decisions per game. He's certainly startable right now on a weekly basis, but his long-term dynasty league outlook is cloudy with uncertainty.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (shin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Godwin has been one of the main options in the passing game for the Buccaneers this season with at least six targets in all but one game this season. He should be a starting option in all leagues this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is still the team's starter, according to head coach Bruce Arians Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Jones rushed just six times for eight yards and didn't have a single ball thrown his way against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13, as Peyton Barber rushed 17 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns. Jones has been up and down all year and has often disappointed fantasy managers who start him as an RB2 or flex option. He's likely too volatile to trust in playoff matchups.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught four passes for 50 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Godwin has been held to 50 yards or less in two of the last three games but continues to be one of the main options in the passing game for the Bucs. He should be considered at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver next week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four passes for 53 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13. He was targeted 11 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Evans did not appear to have a great connection with Jameis Winston this week but is still one of the better receivers in the NFL. He should be a starting option in all leagues next week.
