Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, but is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Howard should be the starting tight end for the Bucs despite the injury and will see a handful of targets in the passing game this week. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Brady leads the NFL with 2,064 passing yards and has thrown at least four touchdowns in three of the six games this season. He will be without a few of his pass catchers this week but should still be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7.
Huddle Up: The Bucs move the ball around a lot, and it's hard to see another receiver making a big enough impact to play in fantasy. O.J. Howard had a 6-49-1 line last week and could expound upon that as a midrange TE1.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 7.
Huddle Up: O.J. Howard had a 6-49-1 breakout last week and could expound upon that as a midrange TE1. The Bucs move the ball around so much, he's going to be a risk.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (thumb) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Brady did not show any limitations with his thumb last week and should have success against the Chicago Bears this week. He can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Howard appears to have a chance to play in the Week 7 game, but fantasy players will know more about his status in the next few days. He will see a decent amount of targets if he is active and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is out of practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: AB is 16th in fantasy points in PPR leagues among receivers, and he has only played five of six games. He'll be a WR2 if he's able to go.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Brady has thrown for at least two touchdowns in four of the six games this season and has three games of at least 350 yards. He continues to be one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Howard posted 49 yards and one touchdown last week, but fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if he will be active for Week 7. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues if he plays.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Gronkowski has been sidelined for several weeks because of his injured ribs and is uncertain for Week 7. He is a starting option when healthy, but fantasy players will need other options available if Gronkowski sits again.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin had five receptions for 43 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Godwin pushed his scoreless streak to four games Thursday night to go with a season-low 43 yards receiving. Everyone knows what Godwin is capable of, but as long as he's in a constant state of flux with Mike Evans, Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowksi (when he's healthy), Godwin is going to remain stuck in that borderline WR2/WR3 vortex.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had two catches for 27 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 14. He was targeted four times.
Huddle Up: Evans had been dialed in for the last four weeks, averaging 6.5 receptions, 92 yards and 1 TD per game, but he has now bookended those strong performances with two disappointing ones -- a 3-24-0 line in Week 1 and 2-27-0 tonight. This isn't a new phenomenon with Evans, who has now had nine games of fewer than 50 yards receiving in 22 games played with Brady. That's why Tampa's most talented wideout can't be considered more than a feast-or-famine WR2 in fantasy circles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown had nine receptions (on 13 targets) for 93 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Clearly Tom Brady identified Brown's matchup as the one he wanted to go after on Thursday night with Brown easily pacing the team in targets, receptions and yardage with no one else even reaching 50 yards receiving. The tricky thing with the Bucs is that in the next game it could be Mike Evans or Chris Godwin that goes off while Brown has a quiet afternoon. You just have to take the good with the bad and keep AB active as a low-end WR2 or strong WR3 most weeks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette carried the ball 22 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6. Fournette added six receptions for 46 yards.
Huddle Up: Facing the NFL's 30th-ranked run defense, Tampa Bay showed more balance than normal, running 28 times (not counting kneel downs) and throwing 42 passes. As has been the case this season it was mostly Fournette, who topped 100 total yards for the third straight game and scored his second and third TDs of the 2021 campaign. We all know that the Bucs offense is built around Tom Brady throwing the ball, but given Fournette's skills as a receiver he has clawed his way up to legitimate RB2 status.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 34 of 42 passes for 297 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: It was a bit of an odd night for Brady and the Bucs offense, which looked unstoppable at times yet mixed in just enough bad plays to need a final drive to shut the door on an improbable Philly comeback. Brady worked the flats to Leonard Fournette and O.J. Howard a lot, but he didn't do much downfield with his interception being a bad overthrow -- a second interception was overturned on replay. He'll get some extra downtime before facing the Bears in Week 7, which should help his thumb heal up.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette faces the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6, and the Eagles rank 30th in rushing yards allowed per game.
Huddle Up: Fournette has taken the reins of the Tampa Bay backfield in recent weeks, averaging 124.5 total yards on 19.5 touches over the last two games. Deploy him as a RB2, especially in PPR formats.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (ankle, knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Godwin should receive his normal workload even though he is dealing with multiple injuries. He has posted at least 70 yards in three of the five games in 2021 and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Brown has been targeted 19 times over the last two games and has 187 yards and two touchdowns during that span. He should see a good number of targets this week and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Brady should not have any limitations in terms of his throwing despite the injury. He has thrown at least four touchdowns in three of his five games this season and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 6 due to broken ribs and a punctured lung suffered in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Cameron Brate has seven catches for 76 yards on 12 targets the last three weeks. He's not enough of a sure thing to play Thursday night in fantasy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady's (thumb) right thumb was heavily wrapped Tuesday, Oct. 12. He acknowledged few body parts are more important than his throwing hand, but he'd be fine.
Huddle Up: Let's not freak out, but he will be playing a Thursday night game after injuring the thumb Sunday. Some limitations should be expected this week. If you're blessed at quarterback and have someone else to throw out there, it wouldn't be a bad decision in this short week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (knee) fully participated in practice Monday, Oct. 11. The Buccaneers did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Brown posted his second 100-yard game of the season last week and has caught 14 passes over the last two games. He should see a decent amount of targets against the Philadelphia Eagles and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 11. The Buccaneers did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Godwin has posted at least six receptions in three games this season and has finished with at least 60 yards in four of the five games. He can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is active this week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 11. The Buccaneers did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: It appears like Gronkowski has a chance to play in the Week 6 game based on head coach Bruce Arians' comments, but fantasy players will know more in a few days. Gronkowski would be a risky option if he is active but can still be a starting option in leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (ankle) suffered a low-ankle sprain in Week 5, and he's expected to miss the Thursday, Oct. 14, game in Week 6.
Huddle Up: David is a flex option in IDP leagues, and he'll have to be cut in some formats. If you have the space, see if you can slide him onto your bench for a couple of weeks. Either fifth-round pick K.J. Britt or Kevin Minter will step in next week and could be worth flex plays.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (thumb) is dealing with a thumb injury but should be good for the game Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Brady, who leads the NFL in passing yards, is second in fantasy points at the position. The Thursday game might present an issue this week, and if you have a great backup, it's not out of the realm to consider them. Otherwise, keep riding his hot streak.
