Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Rodgers actually returned to a full practice on Friday but was still inactive for Sunday's game against Seattle. He should get the green light this week. Upon his return, Rodgers should occupy a change-of-pace role behind workhorse Doug Martin. For fantasy purposes, he's just a handcuff.
Nov 30 - 6:02 PM

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (foot) did not practice Wednesday.

McCoy was spotted in a boot after Sunday's game, but he said he will be "good to go" in a radio interview Tuesday. The Bucs are likely just giving him some rest, but it would be nice to see McCoy return to practice Thursday.
Nov 30 - 5:58 PM

Bucs signed S Major Wright to a one-year contract.

You can go home again. On the street since getting released at the 75-man cutdown in training camp, Wright will provide depth for the stretch run.
Nov 29 - 2:59 PM

Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Gerald McCoy (foot) said he's "good to go" for Week 13.

McCoy's Sunday boot was just a precaution. He'll be out there, and apparently close to 100 percent, against the Chargers.
Nov 29 - 2:48 PM

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy (foot) downplayed his injury following Sunday's win.

McCoy was spotted in a walking boot, but said it's not a concern. "Nothing. I’m fine," McCoy said when asked what was wrong. "It’s stylish. Matches my clothes." McCoy could miss some practice time this week, but is pretty clearly going to suit up against the Chargers.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy was spotted wearing a boot on his right foot following the Week 12 win over the Seahawks.

McCoy was not announced with an injury during a game he helped dominate with 1.5 sacks including a solo effort on the final drive. It is possible the boot is just precautionary, but he will be a name to watch on the injury reports this week. McCoy missed one game with a calf injury earlier this season.

Adam Humphries gained 18 yards on his only target and carried the ball twice for three yards Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Sharing time with Russell Shepard (2/23) and Cecil Shorts (1/6), Humphries is not going to return consistent value even in deep PPR formats. No one in this trio needs to be rostered.
Nov 27 - 8:13 PM

Cameron Brate caught 4-of-5 targets for 49 yards Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Brate could have paid off his fantasy owners in a big way by coming down with a touchdown late in the game, but the play was called back on a penalty. Jameis Winston threw a terrible interception on the next play. Brate has been a consistent part of the offense, but he needs a touchdown to return real value. He will be a borderline TE1 next week against the Chargers.
Nov 27 - 8:09 PM

Mike Evans caught 8-of-11 targets for 104 yards and two touchdowns Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Evans opened the game on fire, grabbing a 26-yard pass on the first series before capping that drive with a short touchdown. He found the end zone again on the next drive, beating Richard Sherman before hauling in a perfect pass from Jameis Winston down the left sideline. Evans was held to 20 yards in the second half as the Bucs reined in the offense, but he still managed to top 100 yards for the third time in four games. This performance puts him at 1,020 yards on the year, making him just the fourth receiver in NFL history to record at least 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons. He should be able to keep it going next week against the Chargers. Evans will be a high-end WR1 in that matchup.
Nov 27 - 8:02 PM

Doug Martin rushed 23 times for 87 yards in the Bucs' Week 12 win over the Seahawks.

Martin opened the game on fire, helping to spark an impressive first drive with 27 yards on his first six carries. After taking a two-touchdown lead, the Bucs' offense stalled out, but Martin continued to gain solid yardage against stacked fronts. Martin has not put up big fantasy numbers since returning from injury, but that could change with a decent schedule over the next month. Even with Charles Sims (knee, injured reserve) on the way back, Martin should remain the clear lead the rest of the way. He will be a borderline RB1 next week against the Chargers.
Nov 27 - 7:53 PM

Jameis Winston completed 21-of-28 passes for 220 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bucs' Week 12 win over the Seahawks.

Winston was on fire to start the game, easily escaping pressure and making great play after great play. He threw a dime to Mike Evans for a 26-yard gain on third down on the first series, capped that drive with a short touchdown to Evans while rolling left, and hit Evans with another spectacular throw over Richard Sherman for a 23-yard touchdown on the next drive. The offense stalled after the second score, however, giving up a safety, missing a field goal, giving up a fumble, throwing an interception, or punting on the next nine drives. The interception was a terrible throw by Winston trying to force the ball to Mike Evans in the end zone late in the fourth quarter, but his defense picked up the slack by intercepting Russell Wilson to close out the game. Winston was not in vintage form on Sunday, but his team is now firmly in the playoff picture. He will look to keep it going next week in San Diego.

Bucs declared Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) inactive for Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Rodgers was able to get in a full practice Friday, but the Bucs were always expected to be "cautious" with his foot injury. He should return next week. Tampa Bay also declared OG Josh Allen, QB Ryan Griffin, DT John Hughes, DL DaVonte Lambert, C Evan Smith, and OT Leonard Wester inactive for Week 12.
Nov 27 - 2:31 PM

The Tampa Bay Bucs will host the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12, who have averaged 429.5 total yards and 28.5 points per game in the last two weeks.

The Seattle offense has been rolling as quarterback Russell Wilson has gradually gotten healthier after dealing with knee and ankle issues early in the season. Tampa Bay has forced six turnovers and and allowed just 27 total points in the last two weeks, but are looking at a tough matchup against the Seahawks. Seattle has turned the ball over only six times in 2016, the lowest total in the NFL, making the Bucs D/ST an avoidable fantasy option in Week 12.
Nov 26 - 12:38 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Despite the questionable tag, the Bucs are expected to be "extremely cautious" with Rodgers. He'll likely miss one more week before returning. Even when healthy, Rodgers won't be a threat to Doug Martin's workload.
Nov 25 - 6:31 PM

Bucs LG Kevin Pamphile (concussion) will play Week 12 against the Seahawks.

He was inactive for Week 11. Pamphile has received extremely poor marks for his run blocking over at Pro Football Focus, but has started eight games.
