Carl Nicks and the Buccaneers have agreed on a financial settlement in order to part ways. Carl Nicks on his decision to step away: "However, after careful consideration, I have made the decision to step away from the game. This was by no means an easy decision, but I believe that it is what is best for me and my family as well as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers." (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: The Buccaneers offensive line is now on shaky ground with the departure of two ex-pro level guards and at least three new starting linemen. McCown was able to enjoy a solid offensive line in Chicago and he will likely need another reliable line in Tampa if he will enjoy similar success. As of right now it does not look very likely that the Buccaneers offensive line will be a symbol of certainty, so a drop in McCown's & receiving corp's fantasy stock should be expected.

Not sure how the league plans to cover the Tampa Bay WR’s, but they better figure it out in a hurry. The gruesome twosome of Vincent Jackson (6’5?/230 lbs) and Mike Evans (6’5?/231 lbs) will be a tantalizing duo to have to deal with. For Josh McCown, this is Chicago 2.0 as Tampa is laying out the blueprint comparable to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. If we are putting it out there, Evans is a future double-digit NFL touchdown scorer and could flirt with that number this season. Our favorite adjective that we have heard attached to his name is that he has fire-hoses for arms. In all honesty, this is a duo that could jump up the ranks in 2014.

Familiar big WRs for hands as Evans/Jackson resemble Marshall/Jeffery.

A 35-year-old career journeyman. Has Mike Glennon breathing down his neck.

McCown was a student of Marc Trestman, but he's had the size, arm and mobility all along. He's suddenly leading a very underrated Bucs offense and is a nice sleeper.

McCown is in his mid-30's, has a coach in Lovie Smith who can't afford to be patient and is on a team that is eager to win now. Will that 3-week run of being one of the better producing quarterbacks in the NFL pay off, or will McCown revert back to being a solid backup but nothing more? We will find out soon enough. But until then expect McCown to be a solid QB3 but he won't hold much if any fantasy value.

McCown is a good free agent signing, but the only system he did well in was Marc Trestman's system in Chicago. It remains if that will translate to the Tampa Bay offense. It also remains to be seen how quickly the Buccaneers go with Mike Glennon if McCown struggles out of the gate.
Fantasy Team Advice | Aug 18th
Expect McCown to present low end QB2 value this year, as he should post pretty average stats across the board for the Bucs offense
Fantasy Sports LR | Aug 17th
On a per week basis, I'll be higher on McCown while he is the starter, but year long, at this stage I'm not convinced he (more accurately the team's record) keeps Glennon reserved all season. The TB QB position is a strong investment throwing to tall WRs Evans/Jackson.
