Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette was tabbed as the 'nickel' back for head coach Bruce Arians, as he is expected to play in hurry-up and obvious passing situations. The role is a big reason he played more snaps in Week 7 against the Las Vegas Raiders, supplanting RB LeSean McCoy from the role.
Huddle Up: Ronald Jones is the bellcow back for the Bucs, but that's right now. The tailback picture has changed all season, and will continue to change. Jones is a decent RB2 in most fantasy formats, while Fournette is more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in PPR formats, with lesser appeal in standard play.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB LeSean McCoy did not play any snaps in Week 7 against the Las Vegas Raiders, as RBs Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette are solidly entrenched as the top two backs. If the Bucs elect to dress only three backs, McCoy or RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn might be inactive in Week 8.
Huddle Up: It hasn't taken long for McCoy to go from perennial high-round fantasy selection to role player worth using in deeper leagues to completely unusable Shady can be left to the waiver wire in all but the very, very deepest fantasy leagues at this point.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Tyler Johnson is expected to see a larger role in Week 8 against the New York Giants with WR Chris Godwin (finger) inactive. He had 29 offensive snaps in Week 7 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Johnson has scored touchdowns in each of his past two games. He might be a decent fantasy option in the deepest of leagues and as a low-cost DFS option, allowing you to stock up on studs at other positions.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Scott Miller, who leads the team with 365 receiving yards, might be counted upon more in Week 8 against the New York Giants with WR Chris Godwin (finger) sidelined. He had a career-high 109 receiving yards in Week 7 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Miller had a 33-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter, and two catches of 33 or more yards in the game. Don't overvalue him based on his previous game, but he isn't a bad player as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown arrived at the team's facility Wednesday, Oct. 28, and head coach Bruce Arians liked what he saw from the veteran receiver in his first day at the team's facility. 'He looks fantastic,' Arians said. 'I think we had really good conversations today, he and I. He was in the meetings and everything and he's working with Anthony Piroli and the strength staff. He looks in great shape and ready to go next week.'
Huddle Up: Brown is wrapping up an eight-game league suspension for multiple violations of the league's personal-conduct policy. He is worth stashing away in most fantasy leagues, as Mike Evans and Chris Godwin have been gimpy all season, it seems. If Brown can stay healthy and keep his head screwed on straight, he could be a tremendous addition for fantasy owners at this juncture.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (finger) could miss more than just Week 8, according to head coach Bruce Arians Wednesday, Oct. 28. 'I think it's very optimistic that he'll be back in a week, but it could be possible,' Arians said. 'We don't know, really, how long. Again, that's why we have the insurance policy.'
Huddle Up: A prolonged absence could certainly allow for the recently-signed Antonio Brown to make a quick impact once he's eligible to suit up. It's not good news for Godwin's fantasy stock.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown was placed on the Reserve/Suspended by commissioner-less than one year list Tuesday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: This shouldn't change how fantasy managers are valuing Brown. He remains fully worthy of adding in all formats on upside alone.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (finger) suffered a fractured left index finger in Week 7 that required surgery Tuesday, Oct. 27. He has been ruled out for Week 8, but he could return for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Rob Gronkowski has had eight targets in each of the last two games and has emerged as a low-end TE1. Godwin's absence will benefit him again Monday night. Tyler Johnson also benefits as he has vultured a touchdown in each of the last two games. He'll be in the flex mix.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (ankle) was asked by head coach Bruce Arians what health percentage he was at before the Week 7 game, and Evans said 80 percent.
Huddle Up: It shows. Evans is only receiving about 5.5 targets per game, whereas he has been between 8-9 targets per game the last two years. He's unfortunately probably not going to be the 80-catch, 1,200-yard receiver you hoped for, but his six touchdowns are a great start after he had five, eight and eight the last three years. He's a top-notch WR2.

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown's deal is official.
Huddle Up: AB will be a popular stash, but it's tough to see him being a reliable fantasy option with so many weapons already on the roster. He'll be a mix-and-match in good matchups.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught both of his targets for 37 yards in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: A lingering ankle injury likely isn't helping matters, but Evans has been a touchdown-dependent option most of the year. Throw in the addition of Antonio Brown, and his days as a must-start WR1 seem to be numbered.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski caught five of his eight targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: After a slow start, Gronkowski scored for the second straight games and has topped 50 yards in three straight. He seems to have shaken off the rust and looks like a TE1 candidate once again.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught all nine of his targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Godwin has been bothered by injuries early in the year, but this was his best game of the season to date. Antonio Brown's arrival clouds his value a bit, but Godwin will likely continue to offer WR2 upside.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Scott Miller caught six of his nine targets for a team-high 109 yards and a touchdown in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: It was Miller's first 100-yard effort of the year, but he has topped 70 yards in four of his six games. He has shown potential as a PPR flex option, but his role could be impacted by the impending arrival of Antonio Brown.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed 11 times for 50 yards and caught six passes for 47 yards in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: After missing almost three games, Fournette led all backs with 17 touches in his return, and he had the biggest role in the passing game. He will continue to split carries with Ronald Jones, but Fournette has value as a flex play.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed 13 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for two yards in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Jones salvaged a pedestrian outing with the touchdown, but the bigger concern for fantasy owners is that carries were split nearly evenly between himself and Leonard Fournette. Jones will be relegated to flex consideration if the committee trend continues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 33 of his 45 passes for 369 yards and four touchdowns and added a one-yard rushing touchdown in a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Brady tied his season high in passing yards, and with the receiving corps starting to approach full strength, there could be more big games ahead. In the meantime, he is at least a matchup-based QB1.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Raiders) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Oct. 23, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed. Brown is expected to make his season debut in Week 9.
Huddle Up: The Buccaneers already have Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as their starters, so it is not known how Brown will be used in the passing game. Fantasy players should look to add Brown if he is available in their leagues but will need to monitor the situation over the next week or two to determine Brown's role.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Fournette in on track to play but probably will see limited touches because Ronald Jones has played well while he has been sidelined. Fantasy players likely have better options available and can keep Fournette on the bench.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Scott Miller (groin, hip) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 23, but is not on the injury report for Week 7.
