Doug Martin, RB12/21/2014 5:55:00 PM

Vincent Jackson, WR12/14/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had six catches for 70 yards on Sunday.
Insight: Jackson continues to stick around and annoy fantasy owners who believed Mike Evans was ready to take over as the No. 1 option in the Buccaneers passing attack. Jackson had 10 targets versus Evans' eight.
Doug Martin, RB12/14/2014 6:12:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin had one of his best games of the season on Sunday.
Insight: Martin rushed for 96 yards on 14 carries. That's the most yards Martin has rushed for since Week 2 of 2013.

Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown was 13-of-28 with a touchdown and interception in Week 15.

Vincent Jackson, WR12/7/2014 7:04:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a big day on Sunday.
Insight: Jackson had 10 catches for 159 yards, and has now gone over 100 yards in two of the past three games. He is a borderline WR2.

Insight: He had four catches for 45 yards, and now has 10 touchdowns this season. Evans is a WR2.
Doug Martin, RB12/7/2014 7:01:00 PM

Insight: McCown had 250 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, and one lost fumble. Turnovers continue to haunt him, as he now has nine of them this season.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE12/7/2014 11:48:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) is officially inactive Sunday versus Detroit.
Insight: He is no more than a TE2 as is, but owners need to make sure they have another option.
Doug Martin, RB12/7/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin should see a slight increase in snaps on Sunday.
Insight: Bobby Rainey is out, so Martin and Charlie Sims will split the workload. However, with a tough matchup against the solid run-defense of the Lions, we do not recommend Martin as anything more than a flex.
Bobby Rainey, RB12/7/2014 11:42:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey (ankle) is officially inactive Sunday against the Lions.
Insight: Doug Martin and Charlie Sims will split the reps, but neither are a great option against a tough Detroit run-defense.
Mike Evans, WR11/30/2014 5:06:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay wideout Mike Evans led the team with nine targets, but it produced just 49 yards and no scores.
Insight: Josh McCown's bad day limited Evans productivity.
Vincent Jackson, WR11/30/2014 5:06:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught just two balls for 24 yards against the Bengals in Week 13.
Insight: Late weekend's first 100-yard game elation disappeared quickly as he was not part of the offense.
Doug Martin, RB11/30/2014 5:04:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin looked very god in the first half with more than 50 yards and a score after the first 30 minutes.

Josh McCown, QBCold11/30/2014 5:02:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown threw for just 190 yards in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati.
Insight: McCown didn't throw for a touchdown and was picked off once in an entirely forgettable performance. No receiver caught more than 49 yards worth of passes.
Jorvorskie Lane, FB11/24/2014 2:55:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay fullback Jorvorskie Lane's right leg injury is a broken leg which will end his season.
Insight: Lane doesn't play much and didn't have any fantasy value.
Mike Evans, WR11/23/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay wideout Mike Evans scored a touchdown in his fourth consecutive game, on Sunday.
Insight: He has six scores during that span, and finished the day with three catches for 47 yards. Evans is a solid WR2 for Week 13.
Vincent Jackson, WR11/23/2014 7:20:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a team-high 117 receiving yards on Sunday.
Insight: It was his first 100-yard game since Week 5, and he did so on five catches. Jackson is a WR3.
Doug Martin, RB11/23/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin led the team in rushing during Week 12.
Insight: He only had 11 carries for 27 yards. Charlie Sims (six caries, 22 yards) and Bobby Rainey (one carry, three yards) were not any better. Owners should avoid Tampa Bay's backfield.
Josh McCown, QB11/23/2014 7:17:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown threw for 341 yards in Sunday's loss to Chicago.
Insight: He also had one touchdown, two interceptions, and one lost fumble. McCown is a QB2 for Week 13.

Description: Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was forced from Sunday's game with a back injury.
Insight: He had two catches for 16 yards, and is officially questionable to return.
Jorvorskie Lane, FB11/23/2014 1:57:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay fullback Jorvorskie Lane left Week 12 with a right leg injury.
Insight: He is out for the game after an air cast was put on his leg.
Charles Sims, RB11/23/2014 12:02:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers rookie running back Charles Sims (ankle) is active for Week 12 against the Bears.
Insight: While Sims may turn into Tampa Bay's lead back, there is too much uncertainty surrounding the Buccaneers backfield for us to recommend starting him.
Doug Martin, RB11/23/2014 12:00:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (ankle) is active for Week 12.
Insight: There is no telling how many touches Martin will receive. As a result, we advise owners to leave him on their benches.
Doug Martin, RB11/19/2014 3:42:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (ankle) was back at practice on Wednesday.
Insight: Martin looks ready to return, but there is no telling how much action he will see. Owners should utilize better options.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE11/16/2014 7:36:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught one pass for seven yards.
Insight: Seferian-Jenkins received only one target. He is not fantasy relevant.
Vincent Jackson, WR11/16/2014 7:33:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had three catches for 43 yards versus Washington on Sunday.
Insight: With Mike Evans breaking out, Jackson isn't left with much with Josh McCown under center. Jackson will remain the second-best receiving option for McCown going forward as we expect Evans to continue to dominant.
Mike Evans, WR11/16/2014 7:30:00 PM
Description: If fantasy owners were smart enough to pickup Mike Evans the last few weeks, hopefully they were also smart enough to start him in Week 11.
Insight: Evans had seven catches for 209 yards and two touchdowns. He has surpassed Vincent Jackson for the No. 1 target in the Tampa Bay passing offense, and is a great WR2 option in fantasy.
Charles Sims, RB11/16/2014 7:26:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers rookie running back Charles Sims rushed for 36 yards on 13 carries.
Insight: Sims is moving into a starting role with Tampa Bay, but he is not fantasy relevant yet.
Josh McCown, QB11/16/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown completed 15-of-23 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Buccaneers to their second victory of the season.
Insight: McCown was obviously emotional after the loss last week, so it isn't a huge surprise to see him come out and lead his team to a victory against another well below average team. McCown is a risky QB2 moving forward.
Josh McCown, QB11/16/2014 11:51:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown has been dealing with a back issue, but is active for Week 11.
Insight: He threw for 301 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, and probably did enough to keep fantasy owners happy. He'll face a Washington defense that is vulernable.
Doug Martin, RB11/14/2014 1:52:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (ankle) is not expected to play Sunday.
Insight: It leaves Bobby Rainey and rookie Charlie Sims to share the workload. Rainey should get most of the carries and Sims the receptions.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE11/9/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins scored a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.
Insight: He had five receptions for 30 yards, on nine targets, and should be considered no more than a TE2.
Vincent Jackson, WR11/9/2014 7:25:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a decent game in Week 10.
Insight: He had eight catches for 75 yards, on 13 targets, but did not find the end zone. Jackson is a borderline WR2, with teammate Mike Evans stealing some of his potential production.
Mike Evans, WR11/9/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers rookie receiver Mike Evans has found his groove.
Insight: After 124 yards and two scores last week, Evans followed up with seven receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown in Week 10. He is a solid WR2.
Bobby Rainey, RB11/9/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey did not do much on Sunday.
Insight: He had six carries for just 14 yards, but also chipped in four catches for 42 yards. Rainey is an RB3/Flex option for now.
Josh McCown, QB11/9/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown trew for 301 yards in sunday's loss to the Falcons.
Insight: He also threw two touchdowns and two interceptions, and probably did enough to keep to the starting job, for at least another week.
Vincent Jackson, WR11/9/2014 12:13:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) is active for the Week 10 matchup with Atlanta.
Insight: Jackson will be ready to roll on Sunday, but owners should consider him no more than a WR3.
Charles Sims, RB11/9/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers rookie running back Charles Sims (broken ankle) is expected to play Sunday for the first time this season, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: Sims will likely be a third-down receiving back, but could take carries and touches away from Bobby Rainey.
Doug Martin, RB11/6/2014 2:45:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (ankle) is not practicing again Thursday.
Insight: He still has not been cleared to practice, leaving Bobby Rainey (19 rushed for 87 yards in Week 9) in line for another big workload. Rookie Charlie Sims is also expected to see his first action during Week 10, but he's more a third-down receiving back.
Vincent Jackson, WR11/5/2014 2:45:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
Insight: Jackson has been taking Wednesdays off, over the past few weeks. He will be ready to roll on Sunday, and owners should consider him no more than a WR3.
Doug Martin, RB11/5/2014 2:39:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.
Insight: He still has not been cleared to practice, leaving Bobby Rainey in line for another big workload. Rookie Charlie Sims is also expected to see his first action during Week 10.
Josh McCown, QB11/4/2014 6:38:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown will start Week 10 against the Falcons.
Insight: Coach Lovie Smith did not give Mike Glennon a vote of confidence on Monday, and now we know why. McCown, however, is no more than a QB2, moving forward.
Mike Glennon, QB11/4/2014 6:37:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon has been benched in favor of Josh McCown.
Insight: Glennon could easily find himself back under center, before the end of the season.
Mike Glennon, QB11/3/2014 5:10:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon was not given a vote of confidence during coach Lovie Smith's press conference on Monday.
Insight: Smith would not commit to Glennon for Week 10, leaving the door open for Josh McCown to regain the reigns. Stay tuned.
Vincent Jackson, WR11/2/2014 5:06:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught just half his targets, but still managed 86 receiving yards.
Insight: Mike Glennon threw to Jackson and rookie Mike Evans about equally in Week 9, but Evans caught more of his targets. Jackson is still a quality WR2 going forward.
Mike Evans, WR11/2/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers rookie receiver Mike Evans easily had his best game as a pro on Sunday against the Browns.
Insight: He caught seven passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Evans and fellow receiver Vincent Jackson look about equal in fantasy value at this point. Evens had 11 targets, and Jackson received 12 on Sunday.
Bobby Rainey, RB11/2/2014 4:57:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers backup/change-of-pace running back Bobby Rainey was a decent emergency play in Week 9.
Insight: Rainey was likely available in a lot of weeks on Sunday morning when it was announced that Tampa Bay running backs Doug Martin and Charles Sims would be inactive. Rainey had 123 yards from scrimmage, including 87 rushing yards, but 80 of those rushing yards came in the first half.
Mike Glennon, QB11/2/2014 4:50:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon completed just 17-of-33 passes against the Browns in Week 9.
Insight: Glennon did throw two touchdowns, but also had two picks. Glennon remains barely in the QB2 conversation.
Doug Martin, RBCold11/2/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is inactive for Week 9 against the Browns.
Insight: Fellow running back Charles Sims is also inactive, so Bobby Rainey will see a bulk of the carries on Sunday with Mike James backing him up.
Charles Sims, RB11/1/2014 5:09:00 PM
Description: The Buccaneers are expected to activate rookie running back Charles Sims (broken ankle) off the injured reserve/designated list by Sunday.
Insight: Sims will likely be active for Sunday's game against the Browns. If fantasy owners are desperate, he is a nice last-second add on the waiver wire Sunday morning.
Doug Martin, RBCold10/31/2014 2:32:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is no longer in a walking boot, but missed the final practice of the week and is unlikely to go Sunday.
Insight: This Doug Martin, the one we have witnessed all season, isn't fantasy worthy even when healthy. In five games, he's failed to run for more than 45 yards. Bobby Rainey should get the majority of the work, though Charles Sims is also available.
Charles Sims, RB10/30/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie running back Charles Sims (broken ankle), who was on injured reserve/designated for return, is expected to see work Sunday.
Insight: Sims could be in for a nice share of the workload if starter Doug Martin (ankle), isn't ready to play.
Bobby Rainey, RB10/30/2014 4:12:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers backup/change-of-pace running back Bobby Rainey may be in for a heavy workload with starter Doug Martin dealing with an ankle issue.
Insight: Rainey did rush for 144 yards in Week 2, but isn't thought of as a workhorse back. Charles Sims returned from the injured list this week and could get nearly an even split with Rainey.
Doug Martin, RBCold10/30/2014 4:09:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is no longer in a walking boot, but is still unlikely to be ready to go Sunday.
Insight: This Doug Martin, the one we have witnessed all season, isn't fantasy worthy even when healthy. In five games, he's failed to run for more than 45 yards.
Doug Martin, RB10/29/2014 3:32:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was in a walking boot on Wednesday due to an ankle injury he suffered in Week 8 against the Vikings.
Insight: He did not practice on Wednesday, and his status for Week 9 is unclear. Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims will have a chance to start if Martin can't go. Check back on Thursday for another Martin update.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/26/2014 6:28:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a day to forget on Sunday.
Insight: He had only one catch for 13 yards, as his inconsistent play continues. Playing on a team like Tampa Bay only hurts Jackson's value, as owners will hope he is dealt by Tuesday's trade deadline.
Mike Evans, WR10/26/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans totaled 78 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.
Insight: He caught four passes, on seven targets, and led the team in receiving. Consider Evans a WR3, moving forward.
Mike Glennon, QB10/26/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay QB Mike Glennon was ineffective during Week 8's loss to the Vikings.
Insight: He threw for only 171 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Glennon is nothing more than a low-end QB2 for the rest of 2014.
Doug Martin, RB10/26/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was forced out of Sunday's contest against the Vikings.
Insight: He left with an ankle injury during the third quarter, and had his helmet offf and ankle wrapped. It looks like Martin is done for the day after posting 27 yards on 10 carries. Bobby Rainey will handle the halfback duties, with Martin out.
Josh McCown, QB10/26/2014 12:14:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown (thumb) is active, but Mike Glennon is still expected to start.
Insight: Glennon is 1-2 in the last three games, but has produced solid fantasy numbers, so fantasy owners hope he continues to start. McCown failed to crack the 185-yard passing mark in three games and will be his backup.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/26/2014 10:51:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has been the subject of trade talks, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Insight: Rapoport reports that the Eagles, Patriots, and Seahawks are among the teams that have called Tampa Bay regarding Jackson. If he is traded to any of these three teams, his fantasy value will skyrocket.
Doug Martin, RB10/26/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, teams have been calling about the availability of Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, via trade.
Insight: A change of scenery could be nice for Martin, as he has only 139 rushing yards, on 2.9 yards per carry. With only one touchdown, and after missing most of the 2013 season, Tampa Bay probably would not fetch more than a late-round pick in return.
Gerald McCoy, DT10/25/2014 4:33:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy signed a seven-year, $98 million extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The new deal will average $14 million per year with $51.5 million guaranteed.
Insight: The guaranteed money is the most ever awarded to a defensive tackle in NFL history. McCoy had 9.5 sacks and 35 tackles last year on his way to the Pro Bowl. He is 26-years old.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/22/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
Insight: Tampa Bay is seemingly playing it safe with Jackson, as he should be back at practice tomorrow. He is expected to be a full-go for Week 8 against Minnesota, and should be cosidered a WR2 for the matchup.
Da'Quan Bowers, DE10/21/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers defensive end Da'Quan Bowers has been suspended for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to a WTSP 10 news report.
Insight: Bowers has been a bust from Day 1 and he's just adding to the wrong side of the ledger.
Trindon Holliday, WR10/21/2014 12:54:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay signed KR/WR Trindon Holliday to improve their return numbers.
Insight: Holliday returned a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown in each of the last two seasons for Denver. He was in the New York Giants camp this summer.
Josh McCown, QB10/21/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown (thumb) is expected to practice this week, but Mike Glennon is still expected to start.
Insight: Glennon is 1-2 in the last three games, but has produced solid fantasy numbers, so fantasy owners hope he continues to start. McCown failed to crack the 185-yard passing mark in three games.
Mike Glennon, QB10/21/2014 10:33:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay QB Mike Glennon should continue to start at quarterback despite the return of Josh McCown (thumb) to the practice field.
Insight: Although Glennon is just 1-2 in his last three games, his fantasy value has been solid with a pair of 300-yard throwing efforts and six touchdown passes to three interceptions.
Doug Martin, RB10/13/2014 5:03:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin disappeared in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.
Insight: With the game out of hand early, Tampa Bay had to essentially abandon the running game. Martin finished the day with 11 carries for 45 yards, along with one catch for only three yards. He is no more than a RB3 for now.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/13/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a decent game Sunday against Baltimore.
Insight: He was iffy coming in with sore ribs, but managed four catches for 66 yards, in a blowout loss. Jackson did have a team-high 13 targets, and should be considered a low-end WR2 moving forward.
Mike Evans, WR10/12/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans scored a touchdown in his return to action.
Insight: He missed Week 5, but looked healthy, and totaled four catches for 55 yards, along with the score. Evans will be a WR3 moving forward.
Mike Glennon, QB10/12/2014 5:30:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay QB Mike Glennon had a solid day against the Ravens.
Insight: While his team got destroyed 48-17. Glennon was able to pick up garbage stats. He went 24-of-44 for 314 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Glennon should be the Bucs' starting quarterback for the rest of the season.
Mike Evans, WR10/12/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans (groin) is active.
Insight: After missing Week 5, Evans is back in the fold, and should be considered a WR3 today against the Ravens.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/12/2014 12:26:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) is active against Baltimore.
Insight: He missed a couple days of practiced, but returned on Friday. Jackson will be a WR2 today.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/10/2014 7:40:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson finally practiced on Friday but in limited fashion and is questionable for Week 6.
Insight: Jackson is still expected to start against the Ravens this Sunday. Fellow receiver Mike Evans is also hoping to be on the field after missing last week.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/9/2014 3:48:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson did not practice Wednesday or Thursday with a rib issue.
Insight: Its still not thought to be a threat to his playing Sunday, but check for updates on Friday's practice.
Josh McCown, QB10/8/2014 8:08:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown did not practice on Wednesday.
Insight: McCown is expected to miss his third straight game. Mike Kafka will back up Mike Glennon in Week 6.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/8/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson did not practice Wednesday for undisclosed reasons.
Insight: This is a new development, so it could mean nothing, as it is early in the practice week. However, make sure you check for updates on Jackson, as the week progresses.
Mike Evans, WR10/8/2014 2:26:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans returned to practice on Wednesday.
Insight: He was limited to individual drills, but this is good news nonetheless. Evans was not expected back until after Tampa Bay's Week 7 bye, but now will have a great chance to play this week against the Ravens.
Vincent Jackson, WR10/5/2014 6:34:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught eight passes for 144 yards against the Saints on Sunday.
Insight: The Saints continue to have problems with No. 1 wide outs from the opposition. Jackson seems to have really benefitted from the quarterback switch to Mike Glennon. Since the change due to Josh McCown's injury, Jackson has a touchdown catch in each of the last two games and now a 100-yard day.
Josh McCown, QB9/29/2014 5:29:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith failed to endorse Josh McCown as his starting quarterback according to PewterReport.com.
Insight: Who can blame him? McCown quarterbacked Tampa Bay to a 56-14 loss in Atlanta while second-year man Mike Glennon led the team to an upset victory in Pittsburgh. Smith may finally realize that Glennon gives his team the best chance to win. Owners can drop McCown in all leagues.
Louis Murphy, WR9/29/2014 12:35:00 PM
Description: Bucs wide receiver Louis Murphy should see a lot more playing time over the next few games with Mike Evans sidelined by a groin injury.
Insight: Murphy caught six balls for 99 yards in the Bucs comeback victory Sunday and should start across from Vincent Jackson next weekend.
Mike Evans, WR9/29/2014 12:31:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans is expected to miss 2-3 weeks, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1.
Insight: The No. 6 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft had scored the first touchdown of the game out-muscling the Steelers defenders and caught four balls for 65 yards and a TD. Louis Murphy figures to see more playing time in the interim.
Vincent Jackson, WR9/28/2014 5:41:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson scores game-winning touchdown.
Insight: Jackson caught only three passes for 32 yards, but had the big touchdown with seven seconds left in the game. For now Jackson is a WR3, with WR2 upside.

Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin scores touchdown in return to action.
Insight: He had 14 carries for only 40 yards and two catches for 16 yards, but did find the end zone. Martin is a RB2 moving forward.
Mike Glennon, QB9/28/2014 5:31:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay QB Mike Glennon leads team to win in final seconds.
Insight: He was good from a fantasy perspective as well, throwing for 302 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Glennon should be the starting quarterback for the duration of the season.
Dashon Goldson, S9/28/2014 3:50:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay safety Dashon Goldson injured an ankle and will not return.
Insight: The Bucs secondary is already extremely thin and vulnerable to Antonio Brown & Co.
Mike Evans, WR9/28/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans pulled up on a deep ball down the right sidelines with a groin injury.
Insight: The No. 6 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft had scored the first touchdown of the game out-muscling the Steelers defenders.
Mark Barron, S9/28/2014 1:52:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay safety Mark Barron left the field with an abdomen injury. His return is questionable.
Insight: The Steelers went right at his replacement, Bradley McDougald, for their first touchdown of the afternoon.
Doug Martin, RB9/28/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) is active for Week 4,
Insight: Its the first time since opening day. With Mike Glennon under center, Martin and backup Bobby Rainey should see plenty of work.
Josh McCown, QB9/28/2014 11:38:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown is on the inactive list for Week 4 due to his thumb injury
Insight: Mike Glennon gets the start with Mike Kafka as the backup. There is no guarantee McCown gets his job back if Glennon plays well.
Doug Martin, RB9/25/2014 2:10:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) calls himself 100 percent according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.
Insight: To say Martin has struggled this season is a huge understatement, but it sounds like he is at least motivated to prove his doubters wrong. It looks like Mike Glennon will get the start at quarterback, which means Martin should be heavily involved. He also has a good matchup against a weak Steelers run defense.
Mike Glennon, QB9/24/2014 1:34:00 PM
Description: Expect Bucs QB Mike Glennon to start in Week 4 and Josh McCown's thumb injury was always expected to take more than one week to heal.
Insight: Glennon (19 TD, 9 INT in 2013) did an admirable job last season, but wasn't very good in the debacle against Atlanta. He'll face a Steelers defense that lost three starters to injury last week.
Josh McCown, QB9/24/2014 1:30:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown is expected to miss Week 4 due to his thumb injury, according to Greg Auman, Bucs beat reporter for the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: McCown hasn't been completely ruled out , but he called it "very unlikely." Assume Mike Glennon gets the start and prepare accordingly.
Doug Martin, RB9/22/2014 5:23:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) practiced on Monday according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: Martin "looked like he was practicing without limitations." This is good news for the Buccaneers as backup running back Bobby Rainey has lost three fumbles through three games. Tampa Bay faces Pittsburgh in Week 4.
Josh McCown, QBCold9/20/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown is expected to miss two weeks due to his thumb injury.
Insight: McCown hasn't been anywhere near as good as he was last season with Chicago. He has two touchdowns and four interceptions this season. Second-year quarterback Mike Glennon will presumably take over and if he plays well he could stay in there longer.
Josh McCown, QBCold9/19/2014 8:41:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown could miss one or two games according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: This might not be a bad thing the way McCown is playing. We don't wish injury on anyone, but McCown has looked awful, throwing four interceptions in three games and losing all three starts to begin 2014. Second-year quarterback Mike Glennon will presumably take over, but head coach Lovie Smith says McCown will be the starter when healthy.
Vincent Jackson, WRCold9/19/2014 9:06:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson pulled a disappearing act for most of the game, but a late touchdown catch moved him from Marques Colston territory to somewhat respectable.
Insight: Jackson caught just two of nine targets en route to a 15-yard day. He is still the team leader in targets with 25 through three games, but has totaled just 101 yards in 10 receptions.
Bobby Rainey, RB9/19/2014 8:58:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey somehow manufactured a respectable night from the Thursday night disaster.
Insight: Starting running back Doug Martin wasn't available and Rainey managed to combine for 105 yards from scrimmage. Considering the ugliness of the 56-14 massacre, his owners have to be grateful for double-digit points.
Josh McCown, QBCold9/19/2014 8:54:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown, who injured the thumb on his throwing hand Thursday night, is quickly becoming a "worst offseason signing" candidate.
Insight: McCown ha been ineffective all season including last night before the injury. He was supposed to rebuild the passing game in the image of the Bears where he averaged more than 300 ypg in five starts, but he's been horrible. Even if healthy he cannot be counted on in fantasy leagues.
Josh McCown, QB9/18/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown injured the thumb on his throwing hand and his return is questionable.
Insight: McCown had been ineffective while out there as the Falcons have demolished the Bus in the first half. McCown was 5-of-12 passes for 58 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. Mike Glennon should play the rest of the way.
Gerald McCoy, DT9/18/2014 7:27:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Falcons.
Insight: McCoy is out with a broken hand, but he is expected to return for Week 4.
Doug Martin, RB9/18/2014 7:17:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Falcons.
Insight: Bobby Rainey will be the Buccaneers starting running back. In Week 11 last season, Rainey gained 167 yards from scrimmage on 32 touches against the Falcons.
Bobby Rainey, RB9/18/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey has a chance to start again on Thursday against the Falcons.
Insight: Starting running back Doug Martin will try to give it a go, but if in pregame warmups it is decided Martin cannot play, the Buccaneers will turn to Rainey, who gained 167 yards on 32 touches against Atlanta in Week 11 last season. The Falcons defense does not look much better this year as it has allowed 284 yards and five touchdowns to opponents' tailbacks so far this year. Rainey is a borderline RB1 in Week 3 and must-start if Martin is out.
Doug Martin, RB9/18/2014 3:45:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) is unlikely to play in Thursday night's game against the Falcons according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Martin will test out his knee pregame before Tampa Bay makes his status official. Some reports already have Bobby Rainey starting against the Falcons on Thursday.
Mike Williams, WRCold9/16/2014 3:32:00 PM
Description: Bills wide receiver Mike Williams caught one ball for three yards in Week 2.
Insight: Robert Woods has started opposite Sammy Watkins the first two weekends, but neither receiver is seeing enough action to get fantasy owners excited.
Mike Evans, WR9/16/2014 3:02:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans pulled down all four targets, but posted just 49 yards in Week 2 against the Rams.
Insight: The No. 6 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft is the second target for Josh McCown behind Vincent Jackson, but needs to be more productive with his receptions. He's got 86 yards and zero touchdowns from nine receptions.
Vincent Jackson, WRCold9/16/2014 2:58:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught four passes for 51 yards in the Bucs 19-17 loss to the Rams.
Insight: Jackson is Josh McCown's favorite target with a team-leading 16 targets, but hasn't done anything with them. He's totaled just 87 yards and zero touchdowns through two games. Still, we like that he's getting plenty of opportunities.
Josh McCown, QB9/16/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown completed 16-of-21 passes for 179 yards, no touchdowns and one interception against the Rams.
Insight: We're still waiting for the "Chicago Bears passing offense' to arrive in south Florida. McCown and big receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans are yet to produce big fantasy points.
Bobby Rainey, RBHot9/14/2014 8:17:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay running back Bobby Rainey started for the Bucs in Weeks 2 and was certainly worth putting in fantasy lineups.
Insight: With Doug Martin inactive, Rainey rushed for 144 yards and caught 30 yards in passes. Nice work for a last-second starter.
Bobby Rainey, RBHot9/14/2014 12:59:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay running back Bobby Rainey will apparently start for the Bucs in Weeks 2, according to a Jay Glazer report.
Insight: Doug Martin will not be active, accoprding to Glazer, leaving Rainey as the starter with either Mike James and FB Jorvorskie Lane as backups.
Doug Martin, RB9/14/2014 12:55:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) is not expected to play in Week 2 against the Rams according FOX's Jay Glazer.
Insight: Coach Lovie Smith was adamant all week that Martin was not benched in the Week 1 loss. The coach also reassured the media that the Buccaneers would stay committed to the running game. Apparently it really was an injury keeping him out of the end of the season opener. Bobby Rainey jumps up in value.
Doug Martin, RB9/13/2014 1:49:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) is expected to play in Week 2 against the Rams according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: Coach Lovie Smith was adamant all week that Martin was not bench in the Week 1 loss. The coach also reassured the media that the Buccaneers would stay committed to the running game. Martin is a RB2 this week.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE9/12/2014 3:10:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins missed another practice and can't be expected to help you Sunday.
Insight: He caught one ball for 26 yards in the opener while veteran Brandon Myers caught six of eight targets for 41 yards. Myers has some low-end appeal.
Doug Martin, RB9/11/2014 2:17:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) returned to practice on Thursday.
Insight: This isn't a surprise as Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith called the injury minor. The bigger concern, however, is Martin's seemingly short lease with Smith. Plus, at less than 100 percent, Martin is a low-end RB2.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE9/10/2014 2:43:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins missed Wednesday's practice and was seen in a walking boot, according to Bucs beat writer Greg Auman.
Insight: He caught one ball for 26 yards in the opener while veteran Brandon Myers caught six of eight targets for 41 yards.
Doug Martin, RB9/10/2014 2:37:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) did not practice Wednesday.
Insight: It's still early in the week, but if he doesn't get on the field tomorrow or Friday then it will be time to look elsewhere for a starter. Bobby Rainey would be the handcuff.
Doug Martin, RB9/8/2014 12:06:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin suffered a left leg injury in Sunday's season opener.
Insight: Martin had rushed for nine yards on nine carries. We await further news, but if needed, Bobby Rainey would be the handcuff.
Charles Sims, RB9/3/2014 11:01:00 AM
Description: Wednesday Tampa Bay placed rookie running back Charles Sims (broken ankle) on injured reserve/designated for return.
Insight: Sims' absence could help Doug Martin get more involved in the Bucs passing game and that was expected to be the rookie's role in the offense. Sims' timetable for return is still 2-3 months away at best.
Mike James, RB9/2/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay backup running back Mike James (shoulder) is practicing and probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.
Insight: Bobby Rainey won the battle over James for the backup role over to Doug Martin. Neither player will be worth a fantasy selection, unless something happens to Martin.
Eric Page, WR8/25/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay has released WR/KR Eric Page.
Insight: Page caught just four balls all last season, but was used on kickoff and punt return duty. Buried deep on the depth chart, he had no fantasy value even before his release.
Mike Williams, WR8/23/2014 8:58:00 PM
Description: Bills wide receiver Mike Williams made three catches for 46 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against his former team, the Buccaneers.
Insight: Williams caught three out of four passes thrown in his direction, including a 14-yard touchdown. He will play opposite Sammy Watkins to start the season and has the potential to be a valuable WR plug-in during the bye weeks.
Vincent Jackson, WR8/23/2014 7:45:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught five passes for 43 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.
Insight: Jackson was clearly Josh McCown's favorite target, and the quarterback looked a lot better on Saturday then he did in previous preseason games this month. Jackson caught all five balls thrown his way. The receiver is a high-end WR2.
Josh McCown, QB8/23/2014 7:09:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown completed 13-of-16 passes for 112 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Buccaneers third preseason game.
Insight: McCown led the Bucs to three scoring drives before Mike Glennon replaced McCown in the second half. His touchdown was a 26-yard strike to Mike Evans in the back of the endzone. McCown has completed 20-of-27 passes for 178 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in three preseason starts. McCown is a low-end QB2. was 2-for-4 for 20 yards and a "pick-six." He didn't get much help from his offensive line. They will all have to be much better or fantasy owners will start to devalue everyone on the Bucs' offense.
Doug Martin, RB8/23/2014 7:01:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin had 12 carries for 38 yards with a touchdown and two catches for 27 yards in Saturday's preseason game.
Insight: Head coach Lovie Smith said this week that Martin was going to be his "bell cow" and he was on Saturday. Martin touched the ball 14 times before half and Bobby Rainey was mostly used only on third downs. Through three preseason games, Martin has 100 total yards on 25 touches. He is a lock to be the every-down back. If Martin is there in the third round, which is his currect ADP, take him.
Doug Martin, RB8/22/2014 12:23:00 PM
Description: Coach Lovie Smith called running back Doug Martin his "bell cow".
Insight: It is a little curious why Martin's ADP has slipped to the early third round as Martin is going to be the focal point of a run heavy offense. There are still questions about the Buccaneers offensive line but Martin provides tremendous value at where his ADP is right now.
Mike James, RB8/18/2014 1:30:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay halfback Mike James injured a shoulder in Saturday's game against Miami and will likely sit out the next preseason game.
Insight: James and Bobby Rainey are battling for the backup role to Doug Martin. Neither player will be worth a fantasy selection, unless something happens to Martin.
Mike Evans, WR8/17/2014 12:48:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans caught two balls for 52 yards, though he lost a touchdown when the ball was stripped out of his hands by Brent Grimes.
Insight: We hope the No. 6 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft learns how to hold the ball when the games begin to count. Evans doesn't have any real competition for the spot opposite Vincent Jackson and should be a solid WR3 and one of the top-two rookie receivers this season.
Charles Sims, RB8/15/2014 3:16:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie running back Charles Sims will miss 3-4 months due to a broken ankle, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: Sims, the 69th overall selection, had been battling Bobby Rainey for the backup role to Doug Martin. Sims' absence could help Martin get more involved in the Bucs passing game.
Josh McCown, QB8/9/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown did not look very good in his debut under center.
Insight: McCown was 2-for-4 for 20 yards and a "pick-six." He didn't get much help from his offensive line. They will all have to be much better or fantasy owners will start to devalue everyone on the Bucs' offense.
Tim Wright, TE8/5/2014 2:30:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers third-string tight end Tim Wright is being considered as a slot receiver.
Insight: Apparently the Bucs can't get enough tall receivers for their new quarterback. Wright played as a wideout at Rutgers and could make for another huge target for quarterback Josh McCown.
Doug Martin, RB6/10/2014 8:02:00 PM
Description: According to the Tampa Bay Times, Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith indicated Tuesday that he has a high opinion of running back Doug Martin but understands the need for more than one back.
Insight: Bucs OC Jeff Tedford said last week that he believes in alternating running backs. "I think you have to alternate,'' Tedford said. "Even when we had two 1,000-yard rushers (at California), J.J. Arrington was a 2,000-yard rusher and and we had a couple times guys had 1,000 yards apiece. But I don’t believe that one back can carry the load. It's just too physical. I think you probably need to have two to three guys to bring different things to the table. But I think you at least need to have two to be able to spell them here and there and keep them healthy and that type of thing." Bobby Rainey and Mike James both played well last season when Martin was out with a shoulder injury, and the team drafted receiving back Charles Sims in the third round this year. Martin saw 368 touches as a rookie and was on pace for 371 last year before his season-ending injury. He'll probably be closer to 300 this year.
Mike Glennon, QB5/21/2014 10:26:00 AM
Description: Despite early indications that Josh McCown would take over as the starter, Bucs QB Mike Glennon has "opened up some eyes" within the organization and could compete for the starting job. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Glennon (19 TD, 9 INT in 2013) did an admirable job last season filling in for Josh Freeman and he could have an even better year in 2014 with Mike Evans to throw to. With that said, head coach Lovie Smith has always been a big believer in the veteran McCown. It's unclear who will start Week 1 and it may not be until deep into training camp.
Doug Martin, RB5/19/2014 4:22:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers choice of West Virginia RB Charles Sims in the third round could take a bite out of starter Doug Martin's fantasy value, particularly his pass-catching numbers.
Insight: Sims is a excellent receiving back, who caught 203 passes for 2,108 and 11 touchdowns, in four years with the Mountaineers.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE5/9/2014 7:48:00 PM
Description: The Buccaneers picked tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins with the 38th-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Insight: Seferian-Jenkins was the second tight end taken after Eric Ebron. Tim Wright caught 54 passes for 571 yards and five touchdowns for Tampa Bay last year, but he's just 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds. The Bucs wanted more beef in the middle of the field and got it in the 6-5, 262-pound Seferian-Jenkins. Tampa Bay selected 6-5 receiver Mike Evans in the first round to pair with 6-5 Vincent Jackson, so Josh McCown is going to have some big targets to throw to in 2014.
Mike Evans, WR5/8/2014 9:00:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay has selected Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans with the seventh pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Insight: He gives the Buccaneers a second receiving threat opposite three-time Pro Bowler Vincent Jackson. Evans has excellent size and should be a solid target for Josh McCown in the red zone. He was the second Texas A&M player taken in the draft behind Jake Matthews, who was taken sixth overall by the Falcons.
Mike Williams, WR4/4/2014 12:38:00 PM
Description: The Buccaneers have traded wideout Mike Williams to Buffalo for a sixth-round pick.
Insight: Williams will join a receiving corps that features Stevie Johnson, Robert Woods, T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin. The trade reunites Williams with his college coach, Doug Marrone.
Mike Williams, WR3/24/2014 9:16:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wideout Mike Williams was released from the hospital late Sunday night. SOURCE: Tampa Tribune
Insight: He was allegedly stabbed by his brother and the police are looking into the incident. As talented as Williams is, he's been nothing but trouble off the field and this strange incident could be the last straw for the Bucs. Don't be surprised if Tampa Bay decides to release the troubled wide receiver.
Mike Williams, WR3/23/2014 8:51:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams was taken to the hospital Sunday after allegedly being stabbed by his brother. SOURCE: WTSP Tampa Bay
Insight: This is a developing story and we'll have more information as soon as it's available. Right now, all we know is that Williams is in the hospital being treated for a thigh wound. Stay tuned.
Josh McCown, QB3/12/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay coach Lovie Smith already has named Josh McCown the starting quarterback for the 2014 season, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. The Buccaneers signed McCown away from the Bears on Wednesday.
Insight: Looks like the Mike Glennon era is over already. McCown had his best season as a pro in Marc Trestman's system last season, throwing for 1,829 yards, 13 TDs and one INT in eight games and posting a 109 QB rating. Smith's conservative offense won't allow McCown to duplicate that level of production.
Darrelle Revis, CB3/12/2014 3:46:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay has officially released cornerback Darrelle Revis. SOURCE: Mike Garafolo, Fox Sports 1
Insight: Things are about to get very interesting. At this point, New England looks like the favorite to land Revis though we can't rule out the Jets, Giants or even the Eagles just yet. Who knows, maybe the Browns and Raiders will find their way back into the mix. ESPN's John Clayton said on SportsCenter that Revis is looking for an annual salary of at least $12 million.
Josh McCown, QB3/12/2014 2:25:00 PM
Description: Josh McCown will be a Buccaneer in 2014.
Insight: The two sides reached a deal moments ago. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's a two-year agreement. This certainly isn't good news for Mike Glennon (19 TD, 83.9 rating last season).
Darrelle Revis, CB3/12/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is hearing Darrelle Revis "would love to be a Patriot."
Insight: Revis also said he'd love to play for the Jets so who knows where he'll actually end up. For New England, adding Revis would certainly ease the pain of losing Aqib Talib. NESN's Doug Kyed reports the Patriots are also looking into free agent corners Antonio Cromartie and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Alterraun Verner, CB3/11/2014 9:25:00 PM
Description: Pro Bowl cornerback Alterraun Verner is headed to the Buccaneers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Darrelle Revis, meet your replacement. Verner was a beast for the Titans last season, hauling in a career-high five interceptions and making the All-Pro team for the first time. The deal will pay Verner $26.5 million over the next four seasons.
Darrelle Revis, CB3/11/2014 8:53:00 PM
Description: Now that Tampa Bay cornerback Darrelle Revis has refused to take a pay cut, it's more likely he'll be released than traded. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: The Browns and Raiders have both pulled out of the Revis sweepstakes. According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Revis is very open to returning to the Jets. He'll become the biggest free agent on the market as soon as the Buccaneers cut him.
Darrelle Revis, CB3/11/2014 6:49:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay will release cornerback Darrelle Revis if he is not traded before Wednesday at 4 p.m. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: It looks like this is really happening. Revis is due a $1.5 million roster bonus on Thursday and the Buccaneers have no intention of paying it. So far, the Raiders and Browns have shown the most interest.
Eric Page, WR3/11/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: The Bucs have re-signed WR/KR Eric Page.
Insight: Page caught just four balls for 68 yards, but returned 23 punts and 22 kickoffs for 799 yards. He doesn't figure to have any more fantasy value next season as he did last season.
Darrelle Revis, CB3/10/2014 8:55:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay is exploring trade options for star cornerback Darrelle Revis. SOURCE: Alex Marvez, Fox Sports
Insight: Revis is costing the Buccaneers an absurd amount of money ($16 million a season) but it's hard to believe they'd be willing to trade their best player after he arrived in Tampa less than a year ago. The 28-year-old is set to earn a $1.5 million roster bonus later this week.
