Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard caught two passes for 35 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Howard has been held to 35 yards or less in four of his five games this season and should be kept on the bench until he is more productive in the passing game for the Bucs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught two passes for 47 yards and one touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Brate has recorded two touchdowns in the last three games but has not posted more than three receptions in any game. Fantasy players should be able to find better options most weeks and can avoid Brate.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught nine passes for 96 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He was targeted 17 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Evans was held off the stat sheet last week but was heavily involved in the passing game against the Panthers. He will continue to receive a lot of targets during games and will be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver most weeks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught 10 passes for 151 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He was targeted 12 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Godwin has posted at least 120 yards in four of the last five games and has been one of the most consistent options for fantasy players. He has become a must-start option in all leagues no matter the opponent.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed for 10 yards and one touchdown on four carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Jones started the season off strong but has been held to 45 yards over the last two games. He has a chance to take over the starting job at some point but should be kept on the bench for the time being.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 28 yards on eight carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Barber has rushed for at least 50 yards in only one of the five games this season and has received under 10 carries in each of the last three games. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can avoid Barber.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 30-for-54 for 400 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6. He also lost a fumble during the game.
Huddle Up: Winston posted nine touchdowns in the previous three games but struggled against the Panthers. He will play the Tennessee Titans in Week 8 after the team's bye but will be a risky option for fantasy players after this performance.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Devin White will start against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6, head coach Bruce Arians said Friday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: White has been sidelined with a knee injury since Week 2, but it looks like the rookie will slide right back into the middle of the Tampa Bay defense. White had high expectations entering the year, and if you need IDP help, check the waiver wire to see if he was cut loose following the injury.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Godwin has been a top option in the passing game for the Bucs this season and should see a lot of targets this week. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is coming off a reception-less game in Week 5, and QB Jameis Winston says that has to change. 'Bottom line, to win football games, we've got to get Mike Evans the ball,' Winston said Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Evans has had two strong games and three with 6.1 standard fantasy points or fewer, but don't be surprised if the Bucs' trip to London results in the former for Evans who was held without a reception last week for only the second time in 82 career games. Start him with confidence this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard's 'time is coming in this offensive system,' according to offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, who added he wants the transition to happen naturally.
Huddle Up: It's hard to complain too much about an offense averaging 29.4 points, but Leftwich's inability to get a mismatch nightmare like Howard involved is perplexing. Making matters worse is that Howard has graded out as one of the worst blockers at his position this year, indicating he's unhappy in his role (he was considered a very good blocker as recently as last year). Fantasy owners are advised to continue riding this thing out a bit longer before cutting the cord; Howard is simply too talented.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Godwin has been one of the main options in the passing game for the Buccaneers and will continue to see plenty of targets this week. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Godwin scored two touchdowns in each of his last two games, topping 100 yards receiving for the second and third times this season. There isn't any concern regarding his status just yet, so keep him locked into your lineup.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard managed just one catch for 10 yards on two targets in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Howard has been a huge disappointment this season, totaling 11 receptions for 141 yards across four games. That simply will not do for fantasy purposes. He'll try and get going in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers in London.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans posted no receptions or offensive statistics on three targets in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: It was all Chris Godwin in this one, as Evans and the rest of the receivers took a back seat. Evans will look to get back on track against the Panthers in London for a Week 6 game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin registered seven receptions for 125 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Godwin has blown up for 19 grabs, 297 yards and four touchdowns on 23 targets over the past two games. It's hard to recommend him as a WR1, but that's exactly what he is playing like right now. The Buccaneers face the Panthers in London in Week 6. Godwin had eight catches, 121 yards and a score against Carolina back in Week 2.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed eight times for 32 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints and he added one grab for minus-1 yard.
Huddle Up: It was tough sledding for both Barber and Ronald Jones II, who went for 4.0 yards per carry or less in the seven-point road loss. At least Barber made the best of his day with a touchdown. It appears these two will continue to split the carries down the middle heading into Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers in London. As such, both are flex fantasy plays at best.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed nine times for a team-best 35 yards in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints and he added two grabs for 21 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Jones and Peyton Barber didn't do much on the ground, although the latter was able to pierce the end zone at least. He'll look for better results against the Carolina Panthers in London next weekend.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 15-of-27 passes for 204 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints and he rushed for 13 yards.
Huddle Up: Winston started out a bit slow, but he has nine touchdowns and just two interceptions over his past three outings with two 300-yard performances. He is a borderline low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 in most fantasy leagues right now. The Bucs host the Panthers in Week 6.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin has 26 receptions for 386 yards and four touchdowns through four games, putting him on pace for 1,544 yards and 16 TDs, which would break WR Mike Evans' single-season records of 1,524 and 12, respectively.
Huddle Up: This summer, Godwin was hailed as a popular breakout candidate, and so far he's delivered and then some, ranking as fantasy's third-best wideout (averaging 15.7 standard-scoring and 22.1 PPR points per game). As long as QB Jameis Winston remains healthy, Godwin and Evans have strong shots to both finish the season as WR1s.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans and WR Chris Godwin are the only two receivers in the NFL with at least 350 receiving yards and four touchdowns so far this season, and head coach Bruce Arians said he wants both players to remain heavily involved. 'They have great hands and they're good receivers,' Arians said. 'Just keep throwing the damn ball to them.'
Huddle Up: Evans was already a weekly WR1 candidate coming into the year, and Godwin has been packing up the preseason hype. Tampa Bay faces a solid New Orleans defense in Week 5, but both players remain must-start options.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 3.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Godwin was able to play last week despite the injury and finished with 172 yards and two touchdowns. He should receive his normal workload this week and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard caught all three of his targets for 33 yards in a 55-40 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Howard has played a limited role in the offense, and he has yet to catch more than four passes in a game. Tight ends haven't typically posted big numbers under head coach Bruce Arians, and it looks like Howard could be the latest victim. It is too early to give up on him, but he is a fringe TE1 at this point.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught all three of his targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in a 55-40 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Brate entered the game with just six catches for 25 yards, and despite the touchdown this week, it is clear that he just isn't a priority in the offense. He can be left on the waiver wire.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught four of his seven targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in a 55-40 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Even with Chris Godwin going off against the Rams, Evans still managed as solid line in his own right. He's a weekly WR1 candidate.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught 12 of his 14 targets for 172 yards and two touchdowns in a 55-40 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.
Huddle Up: It was the second time this season Godwin has topped 120 yards, and he has scored at least one touchdown in three of the four games. He's living up to the preseason hype, emerging as a WR2 with WR1 upside.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed nine times for 19 yards and a touchdown and failed to catch his only target in a 55-40 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Barber is still seeing a decent amount of touches, but Ronald Jones is eating into his workload. Barber is more of a touchdown-dependent flex option at this point.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed 19 times for 70 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for 12 yards in a 55-40 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4.
Huddle Up: It was Jones' first score of the year, but it was the third time in four games he has logged double-digit carries and topped 80 total yards. After a horrible rookie year, Jones looks to be a viable flex option this season.
