Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFC South

Shaquil Barrett ended Sunday’s 28-22 loss to the Falcons with six solo tackles and three sacks.

Fantasy Impact: Needless to say, Barrett ended the season leading all Buccaneers in sacks with 19.5 through Week 17. He is worth rostering into the 2020 season.

Buccaneers K Matt Gay missed all three of his field-goal attempts and was successful on both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: It was a day to forget for Gay, who missed all three of his field-goal tries. Despite the off-game, Gay will likely open 2020 as Tampa Bay's kicker. He's been the best they've had in a long time.

Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught 1-of-2 targets for a two-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: Brate's four touchdowns were his lowest total since he scored three back in 2013. While Brate signed a longterm deal in 2018, the Buccaneers could save roughly $6 million if they move on from him this offseason.

Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard wasn't targeted in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: It was the fourth timed this season in which Howard drew fewer than two targets and the second time with zero Jameis Winston looks. While he could be under contract with the Buccaneers until 2020 if you include the club option, it wouldn't surprise me if Howard was traded ahead of or during the NFL draft, especially if Tampa Bay retains Winston. They just don't seem to click.

Buccaneers WR Justin Watson caught 2-of-4 targets for 27 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: While Watson flashed as the starter with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin sidelined, Watson will likely open 2020 as the WR4. However, if Breshad Perriman, who is a free agent, is not retained, Watson will have a shot to open 2020 in the WR3 spot.

Buccaneers RB Dare Ogunbowale rushed one time for four yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: Ogunbowale was not targeted in the game. His lone carry for four yards was the only touch he had in the game. He will likely retain his 2019 role for 2020 unless he really flashes in the offseason.

Category: Game Recaps


Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed six times for 10 yards while catching 2-of-4 targets for 25 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: While Barber is still lingering around and getting touches, it seems like Ronald Jones is emerging as the running back to own from the Buccaneers in fantasy. A free agent in 2020, the Buccaneers will be looking to upgrade the running back position whether or not they re-sign Barber, a disappointing touchdown vulturing and touch-stealing plodder. He will surely be off the fantasy radar entering the 2020 draft season.

Category: Game Recaps


Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed 11 times for 106 yards while hauling in both of his targets for 10 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: Jones' 106 yards rushing was the first time in his two-year career that he reached the 100 yards rushing mark in a single game. While flashing at times this season, Peyton Barber still lingered around eating into Jones' ceiling. If the Buccaneers make the right moves on the offensive line, Jones could be a breakout player in 2020. He just needs to figure out pass protection so Bruce Arians doesn't continue to take him off the field.

Buccaneers WR Breshad Perriman caught 5-of-8 targets for 134 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: While Perriman has become a fantasy afterthought since injuries derailed him early in his career, he really made his mark down the stretch. In the last five games of the season, Perriman caught a touchdown or accumulated at least 87 yards receiving including three consecutive games with at least 102 yards. Perriman, a free agent in 2020, will look to get paid and continue rejuvenating his career whether it is with Tampa Bay or elsewhere.

Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed just 13-of-24 passes for 201 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 17 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: Winston will be one of the most talked-about quarterbacks this offseason. Not only did he become just the 12th player in NFL history to throw for north of 5,000 yards passing, but he also became the first player to throw for 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions -- a record seemingly made for Winston. And in true Winston fashion, he set the 30/ 30 mark with a walk-off pick-six in overtime. Throwing for at least 300 yards in 11 games since Week 3 including three games in the 400s, Winston had an outstanding fantasy campaign despite his ball security and decision making deficiencies.

Chris Godwin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. (Source: Jenna Laine on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Godwin hasn't practiced since suffering the hamstring injury in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Lions. He was one of the top breakout candidates in 2019, hauling 86 catches for 1,333 yards and nine touchdowns on 121 targets. Look for waiver wire wonder Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson to lead Tampa Bay's receiving corps in Week 17.

Lavonte David finished Saturday’s loss to the Texans with 10 tackles (eight solo), and a forced fumble.

Fantasy Impact: David leads all Buccaneers in tackles with 115 through Week 16. The eight-year veteran should still be owned and drafted like a low-end LB1 across all leagues.

Category: Game Recaps


Jason Pierre-Paul ended Saturday’s 23-20 loss to the Houston Texans with four solo tackles and three sacks.

Fantasy Impact: Since returning to the team in Week 8 JPP has racked up 23 total tackles, 6.5 sacks, and a forced fumble. His performance over the second half of the season should tell owners to stash him in deeper IDP leagues moving into the 2020 season.

Mike Evans (hamstring) was placed on the injured reserve Wednesday, officially ending his season. (Source: Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Evans strained his hamstring in Week 14’s win over the Colts, and the injury was significant enough for him to be placed on the injured reserve. He will finish 2019 with 67 catches for 1,157 yards and eight touchdowns. In a corresponding move, the Buccaneers promoted Spencer Schnell from the practice squad. Look for Breshad Perriman to see the biggest bump in value with Evans sidelined for the season.

Bucs rookie receiver Scott Miller (hamstring) has been placed on injured reserve. (Source: Greg Auman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: His season is over. The 208th overall pick from April's draft scored his first career touchdown on Sunday but had to leave the game with his hamstring injury. Breshad Perriman will operate as Tampa Bay's number one wideout against the Texans in Week 16.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers D/ST recorded two sacks, two interceptions, a fumble recovery, and a defensive touchdown in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions. They allowed just 17 points.

Fantasy Impact: The defensive touchdown came via rookie corner Sean Murphy-Bunting on a 70 yard pick six. The Buccaneers have now recorded three strong fantasy outings in their last four contests. Tampa Bay has Houston in Week 16, and are a recommended fade for finals week.

Category: Game Recaps


Sean Murphy-Bunting finished Sunday’s 38-17 win over the Lions with eight solo tackles, one interception, and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Murphy-Bunting has 37 total tackles, three interceptions, and one touchdown through Week 15. The rookie CB isn’t worth owning in redraft leagues this late in the season but should be owned in dynasty formats.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers star rookie linebacker Devin White is active for Week 15's contest against the Detroit Lions. (Source: Jenna Laine on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: White has been an IDP force since returning from an early season injury, and will look to keep the good times rolling against the Lions. One of the more athletic sideline to sideline linebackers, White can also rush the passer, and make stops in the backfield. White should be trusted as an LB1 despite the illness.

Vita Vea scores in Week 12

Mon, Nov 25th 7:40am EST
By Anthony Cervino

Buccaneers DT Vita Vea caught his lone target for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: It was a gadget goal-line play and score for Vea. Hopefully, he kept the ball for his collection.

Blaine Gabbert (shoulder) will not return from injured reserve this season. (Source: Jenna Laine on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gabbert suffered the shoulder injury during the preseason and hasn’t played a single snap all year. He was placed on the injured reserve in September and has been ruled out the rest of the season. Jameis Winston will not have to look over his shoulder anymore and should have a long leash the rest of the year.
