Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (knee) was not seen Thursday, Jan. 21, in the portion of practice open to the media. Afterward, head coach Bruce Arians said he expects Brown's status for the NFC Championship Game on Sunday to come down to a game-time decision, adding that Brown doesn't necessarily need to practice this week in order to play.
Huddle Up: Brown was limited to 40 percent of the offensive snaps and one 10-yard reception on three targets in the divisional-round win over the Saints, but his status is obviously very much in question this week. Even if he does play, it's tough to imagine Brown seeing a ton of snaps or having a big impact.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (finger, calf) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Jones ran 13 times for 62 yards against the New Orleans Saints last week after being considered questionable for most of the practice week. He should be more involved this week, but the game script isn't likely to be as favorable for the Bucs as it was in the NFC Divisional Round. Jones will be a touchdown-dependent fantasy FLEX option this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip, quadriceps) was limited at practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Godwin caught four of seven targets but for just 34 yards against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Divisional Round. The Buccaneers' passing game wasn't needed much as Tampa Bay operated from favorable field position for much of the game. Godwin, Mike Evans and Antonio Brown should all see more work against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship. Godwin is likely to see the most targets.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (knee) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Evans didn't practice much last week and was targeted just three times in the NFC Divisional Round game against the New Orleans Saints. His day was saved by a three-yard touchdown catch, but it was his only reception. He should be more involved in the NFC Championship with another week of recovery under his belt.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (knee) is considered day-to-day because of his knee injury, and his status for the NFC Championship game is uncertain, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will know more about Brown's status in a few days. Brown is a solid part of the passing game when healthy and can be a starting fantasy option if he plays.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (knee) is day to day with what is considered a minor knee injury.
Huddle Up: There is optimism he'll be ready to play in the NFC Championship game, and he'll be worth WR2 or WR3 consideration.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (knee) is having an MRI on his knee Monday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: Brown was seen rubbing the outside of his knee and had a conversation with a concerned Tom Brady before halftime of the divisional game, and we saw little of AB afterwards. Keep tabs on him through the week as he could still be a good WR2 in playoff leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (finger, quadriceps) is officially active for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Jones will not start but should have a solid role in the offense. He can be a starting option in a majority of fantasy leagues this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski said he plans to return to the Buccaneers next season.
Huddle Up: Gronkowski will be a free agent this offseason but probably will sign a new deal with Tampa. He played well during the second half of the season and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end in 2021.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (quadriceps, finger) appears to have a good chance to play in the NFC Divisional Round game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Jan. 17, after participating in the walkthrough Saturday, Jan. 16. A final decision about his status will be made when the team arrives at the stadium.
Huddle Up: Jones had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two of the team's three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. However, he should be viewed as a somewhat risky fantasy play this weekend, since RB Leonard Fournette has already been declared the starter versus the Saints.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip, quad) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 15, but no longer appears on the injury report for the NFC Divisional Round game versus the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Godwin has a favorable matchup in Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, but the former did not do anything of significance in the first two meetings of the season against the Saints. To his credit, however, he has scored in four straight games and is in the midst of his best three-game stretch of the season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (knee) was limited in practice all week but removed from the injury report for the NFC Divisional Round game versus the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Evans enters this contest after erupting for 119 yards against the Washington Football Team last weekend, but his presence seems to bring out the best in Marshon Lattimore given their on-field history. No Tampa Bay receiver should be fully faded from this week's DFS slate given how well the offense is playing of late, but Evans should be considered the most likely to disappoint.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette is expected to start in the team's divisional-round playoff game Sunday, Jan. 17, against the New Orleans Saints, head coach Bruce Arians said Friday.
Huddle Up: Fournette got the start in the wild-card round against Washington and had a season-high 132 total yards and a touchdown on 23 touches. The matchup is much tougher this week against the Saints, but Fournette figures to see plenty of work again with fellow RB Ronald Jones iffy with a quadriceps injury.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (quadriceps) is expected be a game-time decision Sunday, Jan. 17, for the divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Jones was active but didn't play in the wild-card win over Washington last week, and it's certainly going to be tough to trust him if he's active this time around as Leonard Fournette already has been declared the starter Sunday in New Orleans.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (hip, quadriceps) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (knee) was limited in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Evans was able to overcome being a game-time decision against the Washington Football Team in the Wild Card round, but this weekend figures to be a whole different animal for him as he gets yet another matchup with the New Orleans Saints' Marshon Lattimore, who has mostly shut him down in their recent meetings. Although Lattimore won't line up exclusively opposite Evans, the former's recent success against him is enough to fade Evans in most fantasy leagues this weekend.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (quadriceps, thumb) was spotted at practice Thursday, Jan. 14. He was wearing a brace on his surgically repaired thumb.
Huddle Up: It's unknown whether he was a full-go, but if he returns this weekend, he'll be an RB2 option. It would also move Leonard Fournette to the flex area.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (quadriceps) is dealing with swelling in his quadriceps, and his status for the Divisional Round playoff game is uncertain at this point.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Jones' practice participation during the week to see if he will have a chance to play. Leonard Fournette will see most of the work is Jones remains sidelined and can be a starting fantasy option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady is expected to return to the club for the 2021 season. He will be entering the final season of a two-year contract and reportedly enjoys it there, believing that next year will be even better than this year.
Huddle Up: Although Brady will turn 44 years old during training camp, he can still be projected as a viable starting option for most fantasy leagues next year based on a solid performance in 2020. He threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns while appearing in all 16 regular-season games this year, to go with just 12 interceptions. Brady has also been a model of durability, having missed just four regular-season contests since the start of the 2009 season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (knee) will be active for the Wild Card playoff game against the Washington Football Team Saturday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Evans had been listed as questionable on the injury report after missing the team's first two practice sessions during the week. He makes a very risky option for fantasy owners because WRs Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown and TE Rob Gronkowski are expected to do most of the heavy lifting in the receiving game this weekend, with Evans possibly seeing limited snaps or perhaps being used as a decoy.
