Tampa Bay Buccaneers WRs Scott Miller and Justin Watson have been competing for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp, and head coach Bruce Arians said both players have performed well during camp. Arians said the No. 3 receiver will depend on the personnel grouping during games.
Huddle Up: Miller and Watson should both have a role in the passing game no matter which one wins the No. 3 job. The Bucs have a lot of options in the passing game, which may hurt the fantasy value of both players. Fantasy players could consider selecting one of the receivers in the later rounds of drafts.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Justin Watson caught five passes for 43 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 16. He was targeted 10 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Watson appears to have served as the No. 2 receiver for the Buccaneers this week and likely will have a similar role in Week 17 if Chris Godwin remains sidelined. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Justin Watson worked 'extensively' in the slot this spring, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: As Auman states, there has been a lot of offseason talk about Chris Godwin working in the slot. Godwin will still get plenty of time inside and probably be the primary slot option in Tampa Bay, but he won't be the only one that spends time there. Owners can continue drafting Godwin high because he is poised to break out regardless of where he lines up, but Watson is a name to remember as a highly athletic player capable of becoming what Godwin turned into last season.
