Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Rachaad White rushed 14 times for a team-high 64 yards in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns while adding nine receptions for 45 yards on nine targets.
Huddle Up: White looks like a solid RB2 as long as Leonard Fournette's hip keeps him on the shelf, especially in PPR formats. The Buccaneers host the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football in Week 13.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hip) was downgraded from doubtful to out for Week 12 on Saturday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: With Fournette out, rookie Rachaad White will take over lead duties once again, and recently activated Giovani Bernard and Ke'Shawn Vaughn will serve as his backups and could steal passing-game work. White tallied 105 yards on 22 carries in Week 11, setting him up as a borderline RB2 for Week 12.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Rachaad White is ready for a bigger role, offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said on Thursday, Nov. 24. "I think it was excellent to see him go out there and play an extended amount of snaps [in Week 11]," Leftwich said. "I don't know if he was ready for that many earlier. We saw the gifts that he had early but... we're here with him every day, so we knew we had to get him to the point he could handle that type of load. He's there now. So it was good to see him go out and play and show the skill set that he's got, show the skill set that we like."
Huddle Up: White's increase in workload in Week 11 led to a career day, with the rookie back totaling 22 carries for 105 yards -- and that was with Leonard Fournette in the lineup. Clearly White will lead the backfield in Week 12 if a doubtful Fournette sits, making him a borderline RB2. However, there's a chance White seizes control of the backfield from Fournette from here on out.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (rest) did not practice on Friday, Nov. 25, but carries no designation for Week 12.
Huddle Up: It was just a rest day for Evans, who remains a low-end WR1 going into Week 12.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Julio Jones (rest) was a full participant in practice on Friday, Nov. 25, and was removed from the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Jones has found the end zone two times in the last three weeks but his yardage and reception totals remain low. He's nothing more than a low-end flex play at best as long as Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are healthy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (rest) practiced in full on Friday, Nov. 25, and carries no designation into Week 12.
Huddle Up: Brady had the day off for Thanksgiving before returning to a full session on Friday. The future Hall of Famer has settled into a QB2 this season and is no longer a must start. Brady's Week 12 opponent, the Cleveland Browns, are a middle-of-the-road defense against signal-callers, ceding the 14th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. For fantasy managers who have another option on their roster, play the better matchup.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hip) was spotted at practice Friday, Nov. 25
Huddle Up: Fournette seems ready to play despite the hip injury. He's an RB2 in a great matchup against the Browns.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Julio Jones (rest) did not practice on Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: While Jones has found the end zone twice in his last three games and is coming off his best fantasy outing of 2022 in Week 10, he remains a low-end flex play at best as long as Chris Godwin and Mike Evans are healthy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (rest) did not practice on Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: It's just a rest day for Brady, so there's no concern about his Week 12 status. The future Hall of Famer has officially fallen out of the QB1 conversation and is no longer a must start every week. Consider him a QB2 moving forward.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Russell Gage Jr. (hamstring) was absent from practice Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Gage is still dealing with a hamstring injury, but even if he's active, he shouldn't be started.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (rest) received a typical rest day Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Brady has been pretty disappointing and should be a QB2 against the Browns this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hip) practiced Thursday, Nov. 24. Fournette was listed as limited Wednesday to begin the week.
Huddle Up: Fournette is likely to be sharing the backfield with rookie Rachaad White, but he's an RB2 play in a favorable matchup against the Browns.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Rachaad White should remain the starting running back after the bye week, in the opinion of beat writer Greg Auman. Game flow will dictate whether he or RB Leonard Fournette receive more touches.
Huddle Up: White and Fournette are interchangeable RB2s at the moment, and White is firmly ahead of Fournette right now. However, that can change, and Fournette should remain stashed.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hip) was diagnosed with a hip pointer Monday, Nov. 14, but is not expected to miss any games.
Huddle Up: Fournette will undoubtedly be helped by the fact the Bucs go on their bye in Week 11. The bigger question is whether Fournette has lost his starting job to Rachaad White or if his playing time in Week 10 was primarily the product of having passport issues for the game in Germany. There is a good chance more reports about the backfield situation will come out over the next two weeks, but it makes sense to consider his grasp on the starting job as tenuous at best right now.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Julio Jones (rest/knee) logged another full practice on Friday, Nov. 11, and carries no designation into Week 10.
Huddle Up: Is that... a healthy Julio Jones? The veteran wideout has now logged a pair of full practices in each of the last two weeks after not having a single full session in the seven weeks prior. Russell Gage's (hamstring) absence could lead to a few more snaps for Jones, but as long as Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are on the field, he isn't a suggested lineup option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (ribs/ankle) was a limited participant in practice once again on Friday, Nov. 11, but carries no designation into Week 10.
Huddle Up: Evans hasn't logged a full practice since Week 7, which suggests he's playing hurt. He should still be in lineups but Evans is more of a high-end WR2 than the low-end WR1 he has been in years past thanks to Tampa Bay's struggles on offense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (rest) practiced in full on Friday, Nov. 11, and was removed from the injury report.
Huddle Up: Brady's 2022 campaign has been disappointing, as he hasn't returned the QB1 production we expected and is no longer a set-and-forget lineup option. Still, Brady is on the higher end of the QB2 spectrum this week with a favorable matchup against a Seattle Seahawks team giving up the 12th-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (neck) was a full participant in practice all week but is listed as questionable for Week 10.
Huddle Up: Brate isn't a lock to play despite the full practices, but he shouldn't be in lineups anyway thanks to the emergence of Cade Otton, who is the preferred option at tight end in Tampa Bay. Otton's production could take a hit if he cedes snaps when Brate returns, but he's still a viable starter for Week 10.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Russell Gage Jr. (hamstring) did not practice once again on Friday, Nov. 11, and has been ruled out for Week 10.
Huddle Up: We knew Gage wasn't going to play as early as Thursday after he didn't travel with the team to Germany. His absence could mean more snaps for Julio Jones, but the veteran isn't a suggested starting option as long as Chris Godwin and Mike Evans are playing.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin has 42 receptions without a touchdown this season, and in five previous seasons, he has averaged a touchdown every 11.8 receptions.
Huddle Up: Yes, the Tampa Bay offense has been lacking in overall explosiveness, but Godwin is still due for some progression to the mean. He routinely sees 10-plus targets, and he has had at least six catches in six straight games. It is only a matter of time before he finds the end zone.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Julio Jones (rest/knee) was a full participant in practice on Thursday, Nov. 10, after not practicing the day before.
Huddle Up: Jones has now logged at least one full practice two weeks in a row after not doing so from Weeks 2 through 8. The veteran isn't a suggested lineup option as long as Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are healthy, though.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (ribs/ankle) was limited in practice once again on Thursday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: Evans followed the same path last week with two limited sessions before not practicing to end the week in favor of a rest day. He should be good to go for Week 10 and will be a high-end WR2.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (neck) practiced in full for the second straight day on Thursday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: Brate was barely on the starting radar before going down to injury, and the emergence of rookie Cade Otton in his absence will further hurt his stock. With the two tight ends healthy and likely to split snaps, it'll be hard to trust either one this week. For fantasy managers who have to choose one, Otton is the better play and should be on rosters, especially in dynasty formats.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Russell Gage Jr. (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday, Nov. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 10 after not traveling with the team to Germany.
Huddle Up: Gage will miss his third straight game but wasn't a lineup option anyway after not having had a fantasy relevant performance since Week 3. Julio Jones should continue to see more snaps with Gage out, but he isn't trustworthy enough to be in lineups.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (ankle, ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: Evans should receive his normal workload this week despite the injuries and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Julio Jones (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: Jones probably will return to practice later this week and should have a good chance to play in Week 10. He has been held to under 30 yards in each of his last three games and can be avoided in most leagues.
