Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFC South


Chris Godwin is the #2 wide receiver on the Buccaneers, trailing Mike Evans. Ranked #28 in our consensus wide receiver rankings, you'll be able to depend on him each week. He's projected to catch 87.8 receptions for 1,013 yards and 6.8 TDs, which is 29.7% of the total for Buccaneers WRs. Tampa Bay has the 10th-best schedule for WRs. As the consensus #66 overall player, Godwin is a reasonable pick at his ADP of 65.

Blaine Gabbert won't begin the season as the starting QB in Tampa Bay - that honor belongs to Tom Brady. As such, you shouldn't spend a draft pick on him in most leagues. Gabbert is expected to earn 6% of his projected 10 fantasy points by rushing. It's not really how he makes his living. With a projected toughdown-to-interception ratio of 2.3, he isn't not likely to melt down often.

Cameron Brate is projected for only 317 yards and 3.1 TDs on 34.3 receptions. As the consensus TE29, Brate is not someone you want to start in fantasy. Brate is a fair value at his ADP of 248 as the consensus #256 overall player. Tampa Bay has the 11th-worst schedule for TEs.

The market has Rachaad White correctly valued at an ADP of 134, compared to an overall ECR of 145. At a projected workload of 7.2 touches per game (5.9 carries and 1.3 receptions), White won't be a reliable source of fantasy points. He's second among Buccaneers running backs, behind Leonard Fournette. The Buccaneers have the worst schedule for RBs.

Russell Gage is the #3 wide receiver on the Buccaneers, trailing Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Ranked #53 in our consensus wide receiver rankings, he will ride the fantasy bench most weeks. He is projected for 713 yards and 5.1 TDs on 62.2 receptions, for 21.1% of the total for Buccaneers WRs. The Buccaneers have the 10th-best schedule for WRs. Gage is a fair value at his ADP of 159 as the consensus #133 overall player.

Cade Otton is projected for just 206 yards and 1.7 TDs on 19.7 receptions. As our #48 TE, Otton is not someone you want to start in fantasy. Otton is not Tom Brady's first or even second choice at tight end, with Cameron Brate and Kyle Rudolph on the roster.

Kyle Rudolph is projected for just 331 yards and 3.2 TDs on 33.1 receptions. As our #35 TE, Rudolph is not someone you want to start in fantasy. Rudolph will be playing behind Cameron Brate at TE in Tampa Bay.

At QB8, Tom Brady is a strong starger, but won't come particularly cheap with an ADP in the 7th round. Brady is expected to earn 4% of his projected 337 fantasy points by rushing. He doesn't have the rushing floor that some other quarterbacks have. With a projected toughdown-to-interception ratio of 3.1, he isn't not likely to melt down often.

Ke'shawn Vaughn is a fair value at his ADP of 259 as the consensus #287 overall player. With a projection of 2.9 carries and 0.4 catches per game, Vaughn isn't someone you can really use in fantasy. He trails both Leonard Fournette and Rachaad White on the Buccaneers' depth chart. The Buccaneers have the worst schedule for RBs.

Darden might see limited usage as the 8th-ranked WR on the Buccaneers. At #162 in our WR rankings, he's not a real fantasy asset.
