Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Mike Evans Note

Evans looked just fine in Week 2 after battling a hamstring injury coming in, catching seven of 10 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown. Tom Brady doesn't hesitate to look his way, so fantasy managers should value him as a top-10 option going forward, and start him each and every week without hesitation.

Chris Godwin Note

Godwin has battled various injuries all year but is playing through his fractured finger and looks good to go going forward. Godwin may cede some targets to Antonio Brown, but he's still the best WR to roster in Tampa Bay and should be considered a solid WR2 going forward.

Leonard Fournette Note

Fournette looked to have a prime shot at taking over the Tampa Bay backfield, but he floundered in Week 3 and will miss at least Week 4 with an ankle injury. Depending on the severity, Fournette still may be the back to roster long-term for the Bucs. But for now, he's on the outside looking in, regardless of the injury.

Giovani Bernard Note

Had Bernard not missed six games in 2016 that artificially kept his numbers down, he'd be coming off three straight years of declining touches. As it is, he's been nothing more than a change-of-pace back for the last two seasons, who occasionally factors into the passing game but rarely does anything noteworthy. Even with an injury to Joe Mixon, it's doubtful that Bernard would carry the load himself given his age and size, so he's best ignored in fantasy circles.

Antonio Brown Note

Brown has reached an agreement with the Bucs, and should join them in Week 9. His exact role in the offense is unclear but he should be an immediate add in all formats for his potential alone. Selling high on him isn't a bad idea given the enormous buzz that accompanies him whenever he plays, but he's likely to at least be a startable asset going forward if you do roster him.

Tom Brady Note

Brady has had his ups and downs this year, account for three or more touchdowns in three of his games, but just one touchdown in the other two. His receivers have been decimated with injuries so expect better things in the weeks ahead. With no contribution in the running game, Brady's upside is really a low-end QB1 at this point, and he should be valued as such.

Rob Gronkowski Note

At his peak, Gronkowski was likely the greatest tight end of all time. But after a year off, fantasy manager can't expect him to simply return to his peak self, especially since he hasn't played a full season in nearly a decade. With his immense talent and back with Tom Brady, Gronkowski should still be drafted a TE1, but don't expect a full season of health or a return of the Gronk of old.

Ronald Jones II Note

Jones had a very solid Week 1 against a tough Saints run defense, so much so that he's almost certainly earned himself the biggest piece of the running back pie going forward. He's always a missed blitz pickup or a fumble away from losing time, but so long as he has the job, he's a solid Flex play, particularly in soft matchups.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Note

Ryan Succop Note

Scotty Miller Note
Scotty Miller photo 287. Scotty Miller WR - (vs . ATL)
Miller has had plenty of bright spots this year, but he's also been essentially absent for two weeks, both when Chris Godwin was out and Miller's managers were relying on him. He's been banged up himself, but his lack of production during the times when he's most needed has been frustrating. He's fine to roster in deeper leagues as a bench and bye-week option, but not as anything more.
