Ross Cockrell released by Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they have released CB Ross Cockrell.

Fantasy Impact

Cockrell has spent the past two seasons with the Buccaneers and was mainly used as a special teams player. Cockrell appeared in all 17 games for Tampa Bay last year and recorded 43 tackles, seven passes defended, and one forced fumble. The ninth-year pro will likely find himself on a roster near the start of the season because of his experience and special teams value.

Ross Cockrell leads with 10 tackles

Ross Cockrell racked up 10 solo tackles in Sunday’s 38-6 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Cockrell has 56 tackles and two interceptions through Week 16 of the 2019 season. He should be left on waivers in most leagues.

Ross Cockrell (broken leg) confirmed done for the season

Ian Rapoport has confirmed the report that Carolina Panther Ross Cockrell has broken his leg and is now officially out for the season.

Fantasy Impact

His IDP owners will need to look for those other options. In-house rookie Donte Jackson should be a good place to start if needing a designated cornerback.

Ross Cockrell (leg) sustains gruesome injury

Panther newly signed Ross Cockrell went down after colliding with wide receiver Torrey Smith during a drill. Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports that Cockrell was screaming “my leg is broke,” as well as other witnesses calling the injury gruesome. The practice has been called off for the rest of the day. Ron Rivera didn’t offer any update on Ross Cockrell instead injury deferring to trainers.

Fantasy Impact

By all accounts, Cockrell may have been on IDP owners radars for leagues needing to insert cornerbacks into the lineups. It certainly sounds as if owners will need to look at other options at this point. With this news, it is possible that rookies Donte Jackson and Rashaan Gaulden, who both had already been running with the first team, may have just found their opportunities increase even more in 2018. With Cockrell going down a veteran signing can be expected in the coming days. Jackson is the likely candidate and now an even better option for leagues needing that cornerback for their lineups. If he is that corner across from above average James Bradberry he'll likely be targeted often his rookie season. This may also pull Bashaud Breeland back onto Carolina's radar as a depth signing.
