Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFC South


Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught his only target for a three-yard gain in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: With Rob Gronkowski back and productive, Brate and O.J. Howard are both merely blips on the fantasy radar.

Buccaneers WR Tyler Johnson caught his lone target for a six-yard gain in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson has not been able to get going even with Antonio Brown's lengthy absence. Look for Johnson's pop games, if any, to remain unpredictable and sporadic.

Buccaneers RB Giovani Bernard rushed one time for three yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for a seven-yard gain in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Bernard has been a non-factor in fantasy for most of the year with Leonard Fournette handling the bulk of the pass-catching duties at running back. He should remain on waivers while the starter is healthy.

Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones rushed one time for two yards in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Jones had an illness and exited the game in the first half after logging two yards. Outside of garbage time scores, Jones is a non-factor in fantasy.

Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught 7-of-10 targets for 99 yards in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: All of the Buccaneers' top fantasy assets had a day against the Falcons. Evans was no different, who managed a quiet 7/33/0 line. Evans will get the Bills in Week 14.

Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette rushed 13 times for 44 yards and caught 7-of-8 targets for 48 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Fournette has been going off. He's now scored five times in his past two games while remaining heavily involved in the passing game. Fournette should be in all fantasy lineups due to his usage in the offense and around the goal line.

Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski caught 4-of-8 targets for 58 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Gronkowski has been playing well since returning from injury. On Sunday, he finally got back into the end zone, scoring twice. Look for Gronk to be heavily involved in the Tampa offense for the rest of the way.

Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin caught 15-of-17 targets for 143 yards in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Godwin did everything but score in Week 13. Like Tom Brady, Godwin regularly touches the Falcons. Sunday was no different. Godwin is a locked and loaded starter through the fantasy playoffs.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 38-of-51 passes for 368 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Once again, Brady had his way with the Falcons, a team he normally lights up. With the Bucs' offense firing on all cylinders, Brady should be started without hesitation through the fantasy playoffs. He gets the Bills next week.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers D/ST surrendered 380 total yards and 17 points In Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: While the Buccaneers' defense did give up nearly 400 yards of offense, they managed to hold the Falcons out of the end zone more times than not. One of the scores allowed was a Falcons defense touchdown. The Bucs' defense only allowed 10 points overall. Tampa's defense will be tested in Week 14 against the Bills.

Category: Game Recaps


Buccaneers K Ryan Succop made his only field goal attempt and 3-of-4 extra-point tries in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Succop is tied to a terrific offense, but they don't attempt enough field goals to get him over 10 fantasy points. The Bucs are normally a touchdown scoring machine. Succop brings a solid floor but his ceiling is capped.

The Tampa Bay Bucs are promoting WR Breshad Perriman to their active roster. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Perriman will play in Week 13 against the Falcons, taking the roster spot opened by Antonio Brown's suspension. However, Perriman isn't close to being a fantasy factor.

Antonio Brown has been suspended for the next three games for violating NFLPA COVID-19 protocols with the use of misrepresented documents. (Source: Ian Rappaport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This news comes after Brown was expected to miss the next two weeks anyhow with injury, so this must've been an ongoing situation. Brown will now miss Weeks 13-15, which is brutal timing for fantasy football playoffs.


Buccaneers WR Scotty Miller drew one target in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Miller played for the first time since Week 3 but failed to catch his only target. Once Antonio Brown returns, Miler's fantasy value will trend even lower.

Buccaneers linebacker Devin White (quad) returned to a full padded practice on Thursday. He suffered the injury during the final minutes of Sunday Night Football against the Giants. (Source: Rick Stroud on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wednesday's practice estimation listed White as a DNP, so his upgrade on Thanksgiving Day is promising. It looks like should suit up against the Colts on Sunday afternoon.

Buccaneers defensive tackle Vita Vea (knee) returned to practice on Thursday. He missed the team's Week 11 game against the Giants and logged a limited session on Wednesday. (Source: Rick Stroud on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Vea has been a strong part of the Bucs' defensive line this season, recording 19 tackles, one sack, and one fumble recovery through nine games. His presence will be pivotal ahead of a tricky matchup against Jonathan Taylor and the Colts.

Category: Injury Updates


Richard Sherman (calf) was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday. (Source: Ian Rappaport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This does not impact the Bucs defense all that much as Sherman is not the same CB this season as he was playing through injuries. However, they are a bit thin in terms of defensive backs.

Category: Injury Updates


Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard was not targeted in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact: It was another wasted outing for Howard. At this point, it is safe to say Howard's tenure in Tampa was a letdown. It is not happening for him with the Buccaneers.

Darren Fells was promoted from the Bucs practice squad ahead of Sunday's Week 10 matchup against Washington. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Bucs also have OJ Howard and Cameron Brate available for this game, but they are a bit depleted in terms of pass catchers, so Fells promotion is likely a product of that. There likely won't be a huge role carved out for him this week.


Buccaneers WR Cyril Grayson Jr. caught his lone target for a 50-yard gain in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Grayson is just a guy buried on Tampa's pass-catching depth chart. He made a big 50-yard play, but his sporadic use is useless in fantasy outside of the deepest of leagues.
