Brent Grimes (groin) out Week One

Tampa Bay cornerback Brent Grimes (groin) is ruled out versus the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Week One. Grimes was added to the injury report Friday after suffering the groin injury.

Fantasy Impact

IDP owners will want to take note, facing Drew Brees and company, Tampa Bay's three main rookie's in the Secondary could be solid IDP plays. It is likely that cornerbacks Carlton Davis, M.J. Stewart, and safety Jordan Whitehead could all see extended playing time.

Brent Grimes re-signs with Bucs

Sports Illustrated's Mike Silver is reporting that the Buccaneers and cornerback Brent Grimes have agreed on a one-year deal worth up to $10 million.

Fantasy Impact

It takes Grimes off the free agent market, as he was one of the better names available at the cornerback position. Coming off a season in which he was one of the lone bright spots on the Bucs defense (particularly the secondary), it was a wonder why he wasn't retained before the legal tampering period began. He allowed just one touchdown on 72 targets in his coverage last season. This move should allow the Bucs to hit some other positions in the draft, though on a one-year deal, they don't have their future aligned at the position.

Brent Grimes records his 31st career interception

Brent Grimes now has the fifth-most interceptions in the league among active players. His interception may have been a highlight in this contest but his eight total tackles also lead the Tampa Bay defense. But his best effort here did not secure the win vs. Arizona as the Tampa Bay defense struggled to stop Adrian Peterson in the run game.

Fantasy Impact

Grimes effort did reward any fantasy owners who might have had him in play this week. He is that good that many NFL quarterbacks can intentionally avoid whoever the wide receiver is he is covering any given game resulting in a fantasy point failure. Owners should proceed with caution. So far he has only been fantasy point relevant every other contest.

Brent Grimes (shoulder) a full go in practice

CB Brent Grimes (shoulder) was a full go in practice Thursday, Sept 28th. Grimes sat out the Week 3 contest with the shoulder injury.

Fantasy Impact

Grimes should be good to go for Week 4 unless he suffers a setback.

Brent Grimes snags his first interception of the season

The Bucs were able to hold onto a close win over the Panthers on Monday night. Turnovers helped and Brent Grimes was able to come away with a big one in the red zone. He finished two solo tackles, two assists, two pass deflections and the interception.

Fantasy Impact

Corners do not have as much value as most safeties in IDP leagues because their tackle numbers are typically lower. Interceptions help and Grimes is a guy who can definitely take advantage in that category. He is worth a look as a spot start in some leagues after the Bucs bye week in Week 6.
