  • Russell Gage Won't Play Against Browns

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said that wide receiver Russell Gage (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Gage hasn't played since Week 7 and wasn't able to get healthy during the team's Week 11 bye, so he'll miss yet another game this weekend. As long as the rest of Tampa's receiving corps remains healthy, Gage has no business being rostered in standard-sized fantasy leagues. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones will continue to operate as the team's top three wideouts against Cleveland. Gage has recorded 29 receptions on 40 targets for 231 yards and one touchdown in seven games with Tampa so far in 2022.

  • Ryan Succop A Top-10 Fantasy Kicker Versus Cleveland

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Ryan Succop has been one of the season's most reliable fantasy kickers. He has converted 22-of-25 field goal attempts while going a perfect 13-for-13 in extra-point tries. The 36-year-old will look to bounce back against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 after tallying three points in the Week 10 win over the Seahawks. Sunday's game between the Bucs and Browns has an over/under of 43 points. Succop has scored double digits in three of the last five weeks and remains a strong streaming option against the Browns in Week 12.

  • Cade Otton Mainly A Streamer In Deep-League Formats

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie tight end Cade Otton has 26 catches for 281 yards and one touchdown over nine games in 2022. Teammate Cameron Brate (neck) returned in Week 10 after a three-game absence. Otton out-snapped the veteran Brate 46-34 in the Germany game win over the Seahawks. The 23-year-old had a vital role and caught all three of his targets for 35 yards. He will look to improve on the Week 10 totals against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Cleveland has been shredded by opposing tight ends this season and ranks 26th in DVOA versus the position. The return of Brate caps Otton's fantasy upside, but the rookie is worth taking a chance on in deep-league formats.

  • Chris Godwin A Solid Fantasy Option Against Cleveland

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin caught his first touchdown of the season in the Week 10 win over the Seahawks. He logged six receptions on eight targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Germany game. The 26-year-old continued seeing heavy volume and had been targeted double digits in four of his last five games. He will look to build on the Week 10 performance against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Cleveland ranks 24th in DVOA against opposing WR2s. With the plus matchup and a good volume of targets, Godwin remains a solid fantasy option in Week 12.

  • Mike Evans A Borderline WR1 Against The Browns

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has posted modest results recently and will look to bounce back against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12. He hasn't found the end zone since Week 4 and has had 10 catches for 94 yards over his last games. The 29-year-old is in a great spot against a Browns defense that ranks 22nd in DVOA versus opposing WR1s. Despite his recent modest production, Evans remains a must-start and is a borderline WR1 against the Browns in Week 13.

  • Rachaad White Will Have Expanded Role Against Cleveland

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White should see an expanded in Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, with teammate Leonard Fournette (hip) unlikely to play. He is set to be Tampa Bay's primary ball carrier and is coming off the best game of the season in Week 10. The 23-year-old logged a career-high 22 carries for 105 yards in the win over Seattle. White has a favorable matchup against the Browns. Cleveland ranks 27th in rush DVOA and has allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs per game this season. Fantasy managers should plug and play White into their fantasy lineups in Week 12.

  • Tom Brady Remains A Solid Fantasy Option Against Cleveland

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has been solid this season and is a borderline QB1 against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12. The 45-year-old has thrown for 2,805 yards and a 12:2 TD:INT ratio over 11 games in 2022. Cleveland has been obliterated through the air and ranks 28th in pass DVOA. Tampa Bay could lean on the pass more against the Browns, as they are expected to be without running back Leonard Fournette (hip), who is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game. Fantasy managers should start Brady with the plus matchup against Cleveland, and he remains a solid fantasy option in Week 12.

  • Leonard Fournette To Be Game-Day Decision

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette (hip) has practiced in a limited fashion this week leading up to the game against the Cleveland Browns. Fournette suffered the injury in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks in Germany before Tampa Bay went on a Week 11 bye. He will reportedly be a game-day decision. If he's active, he'll be in a timeshare with rookie Rachaad White, who posted his first 100-yard rushing game against Seattle. Both will be solid flex plays, but either is at risk of producing a dud in the shared backfield. If Fournette is out, White is virtually a must-start against the Cleveland defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs through 11 weeks.

  • Bucs To Ride Hot Hand At Running Back

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said the team would ride the hot hand at running back between Leonard Fournette and Rachaad White. Fournette is "pretty sore" with a hip injury he suffered in the Germany game and was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. "We'll see how he (Fournette) progresses, and if he can go, he'll go; if he can't, he won't," said Bowles. White filled in admirably when Fournette exited early in the Germany game against the Seahawks, rushing 22 times for 105 yards. Tampa Bay will ride the hot hand, and White could see the lion's share of the carries from the Bucs backfield after his Week 10 performance. Fantasy managers can start Fournette and White as flex plays until the backfield situation sorts itself out within the next few weeks.

  • Leonard Fournette Dealing With Hip Injury

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette (hip) suffered a hip pointer injury in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. The Buccaneers had their bye last week, giving the veteran running back time to heal from the injury. However, head coach Todd Bowles said Fournette is very sore. Bowles added that if the veteran can run at full speed during practice this week, Fournette would play on Sunday. However, if the former LSU star can't play, third-round rookie Rachaad White would get his first career start against the Cleveland Browns. The former Arizona State star had 105 rushing in the Week 10 matchup against the Seahawks, a career-high.

  • Buccaneers Designate RB Giovani Bernard For Return

    The Buccaneers offense could soon be getting some reinforcement. The team announced that they’ve designated running back Giovani Bernard to return from injured reserve. The Buccaneers now have three weeks to activate the running back to their active roster. Bernard landed on injured reserve in September after suffering an ankle injury in Week 2. In […]

  • Rachaad White Expected To Start In Week 12?

    The Athletic's Greg Auman said that he expects Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Rachaad White to get the start when the team comes off their bye to face the Cleveland Browns. However, who gets more touches in Tampa's backfield the rest of the game will hinge on who produces between White and Leonard Fournette. White led the backfield in the win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany, carrying 22 times for 105 yards. Fournette had 14 carries for 57 yards and a touchdown and left in the fourth quarter with a hip pointer. Fournette is expected to be ready to go in Week 12, but it's clear that White's role is growing in the Bucs' offense. The 23-year-old should be picked up in all fantasy leagues if he's available, especially if you already have Fournette on your roster.

  • Leonard Fournette Likely To Be Ready After Bye

    Despite suffering a hip pointer in the Week 10 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette (hip) is likely to be ready to play against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 after the team's bye, according to sources. It's good news for Fournette's fantasy managers, but the question will now become, will rookie Rachaad White continue to see more backfield work after out-carrying Lenny 22 to 14 and outrushing him 105 to 57 in the win over Seattle. Despite the injury late in the game, Fournette averaged 4.1 yards per carry and scored on the ground. Even if Fournette doesn't miss any time with his hip pointer, it's clear that White has earned a larger share of the work next to Fournette in this backfield, making Fournette's rest-of-season outlook a bit cloudy.

  • Bucs Defense Records Three Sacks, Holds Seattle To 16 Points

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense/special teams allowed 283 total offensive yards in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. Tampa Bay's defense racked up three sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's victory. Devin White led the way for the Bucs, racking up two sacks and six defensive stops. The Bucs' defense has now held opposing offenses to under 20 points in back-to-back games. Tampa Bay has a bye in Week 11 but remains a strong fantasy DST option against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12.

  • Ryan Succop Tallies Three Points In Germany Game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Ryan Succop missed his only field goal attempt while connecting on all three extra-point tries in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. He missed his only field goal attempt from 52 yards out. The 36-year-old was held to three points for the second time this season. Despite the limited performance, he has been solid this season. The veteran is 22-of-25 in field goal attempts and 13-for-13 in extra-point tries over 10 games in 2022. Succop will look to bounce back against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 following the team's bye in Week 11.

  • Cade Otton Records Three Receptions In Germany Game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cade Otton caught all three targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. He still drew the start on Sunday with Cameron Brate (neck) returning from a three-game absence. The 23-year-old had one more target than Brate and has logged three receptions in three of his last four contests. The Bucs rookie has 26 catches for 281 yards and a touchdown over nine games in 2022. Otton can be used as a streamer in deep-league formats against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 following the team's bye in Week 11.

  • Julio Jones Finds The End Zone In Win Over Seattle

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Julio Jones caught three of five targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. Tom Brady connected with Jones for a 31-yard touchdown to put Tampa Bay during the first quarter to put Tampa Bay on the scoreboard. Since returning from a knee injury in Week 8, the 33-year-old has now scored twice over his last three games. Jones is considered a boom-or-bust flex against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 following the team's bye in Week 11.

  • Mike Evans Catches Five Passes In Germany Game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans caught five of six targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. He started hot, racking up four catches for 49 yards in the first half, but only saw two targets the rest of the game. The 29-year-old streak of double-digit targets snapped at three games. He has been held under 60 receiving yards in back-to-back games and hasn't found the end zone since Week 4. Evans will look to bounce back against the Cleveland Browns following the team's bye in Week 11.

  • Chris Godwin Catches First Touchdown Of The Year

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin caught six of eight targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. Tom Brady connected with Chris Godwin for a four-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was Godwin's first touchdown of the year. The 26-year-old has now caught at least six passes in seven straight contests. Godwin is considered a mid-range WR2 against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 following the team's bye in Week 11.

  • Rachaad White Starts, Rumbles For 105 Yards In Germany Game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White rushed for 105 yards on 22 carries and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. The 23-year-old drew the start over Leonard Fournette and eclipsed the 100-yard mark in Sunday's victory. He could see an expanded role moving forward as Fournette exited Sunday's game early with a hip pointer. The severity of Fournette's injury is unknown, and he will undergo further evaluation. Tampa Bay has a bye in Week 11; the veteran back will have some extra time to recover. White earned more playing time with his performance in the Germany game and is considered a mid-range RB2 if Fournette is ruled out ahead of Week 12's matchup against the Cleveland Browns.

  • Leonard Fournette Dealing With Hip Pointer

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette has a hip pointer and will be evaluated further, head coach Todd Bowles told the media. Fournette operated behind Rachaad White in Week 10 but still managed to produce 58 scrimmage yards and one touchdown. The Buccaneers are heading into their bye week, so Fournette has plenty of time to recover before Tampa Bay takes on the Cleveland Browns in Week 12.

  • Tom Brady Throws Two Touchdowns In Win Over Seattle

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady completed 22-of-29 passes for 258 yards while rushing for minus three yards on six attempts in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. He connected with Julio Jones for a 31-yard touchdown to put the Bucs on the scoreboard 7-0. The 45-year-old later threw a four-yard touchdown to Chris Godwin to give Tampa Bay a 21-3 lead. It was the first time since Week 4 that Brady threw for multiple touchdowns in a game. The GOAT was also intercepted in Sunday's win, snapping a streak of eight games without throwing a pick. Brady will look to continue to solid play and is a borderline QB1 against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 following the team's bye in Week 11.

  • Leonard Fournette Doubtful To Return Sunday

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Leonard Fournette (hip) is doubtful to return against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. It has been a rough game for the veteran back, who lost his starting job to Rachaad White, threw an interception on a failed trick play, and then exited with his injury. He finished the day with 14 carries, 57 rushing yards, and one touchdown. On a positive note, the Buccaneers are on bye next week, so Fournette has plenty of time to recover.

  • Cameron Brate Active Sunday, Kyle Rudolph A Healthy Scratch

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (neck) is active for Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. As a result, Kyle Rudolph (coach's decision) is inactive. Brate hasn't played since Week 6 when he caught two passes for 14 yards before exiting with a scary upper-body injury. In total, he has 13 catches for 114 yards through five contests. Although he's not on the fantasy radar, his return to the lineup could detract from rookie Cade Otton's fantasy value this week.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Ryan Succop has been terrific this season. He has converted 22-of-24 in field goal attempts and is a perfect 10-for-10 in extra-point tries. The 36-year-old has tallied double-digit points in three of his last four games. Sunday's over/under between the Seattle Seahawks, and the Bucs is 42.5 points. The Seahawks' defense allows 6.2 fantasy points per game to opposing kickers, ranking 11th overall versus the position. Succop should be busy again on Sunday and remains a top-10 fantasy option against Seattle for the Germany game.

  • Cameron Brate Questionable For Germany Game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (neck) is listed as questionable for the Germany game against the Seattle Seahawks. He was a full participant in practice this week and trending in the right direction toward suiting up against Seattle. The 31-year-old has missed the last three weeks due to a concussion and neck injury. He has caught 13 passes for 114 yards over five games in 2022. Cade Otton has leapfrogged Brate in the pecking order for targets in Tampa Bay's passing game. Fantasy managers can avoid using Brate even if he is active against the Seahawks in Week 10.

  • Cade Otton A Solid Streaming Option Against Seattle

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cade Otton is earning quarterback Tom Brady's trust and had his best game of the season in Week 9. He caught five of six targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in last Sunday's 16-13 win over the Rams. The 23-year-old has topped 60 yards in two of the previous three games. Fellow tight end Cameron Brate (neck) is questionable for the Germany game Sunday and could return after a three-week absence. Otton has a plus matchup against the Seahawks, who rank 29th in DVOA against opposing tight ends. Fantasy managers looking for a streaming option can use Otton in Week 10 regardless if Brate suits up or not.

  • Mike Evans Good To Go For Germany Game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (ribs, ankle) was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks in Munich, Germany. He was a limited participant in practice throughout the week. The 29-year-old's injuries weren't too severe, and he will suit up for the Germany game against Seattle. He continues to see heavy usage and has recorded at least 11 targets over the previous three games. Evans has a terrific matchup against a Seahawks defense that ranks 29th in DVOA against the opposing WR1s this season.

  • Chris Godwin Continues To Recover From Knee Injury

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin (knee) said he continues to recover from knee surgery to fix a torn ACL that he suffered last season, but he has been feeling better as he progresses this year. Godwin feels that he's making small improvements each week, but it's still a fluid process throughout the season. The 26-year-old is the WR16 entering Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks in London, but his production could increase in the second half of the season as he gets closer to 100 percent health. Godwin currently has 42 receptions on 65 targets for 404 yards in seven games, but he's still searching for his first touchdown of the season. He'll remain in WR2 territory for fantasy managers this Sunday against Seattle.

  • Chris Godwin A Mid-Range WR2 Against Seattle

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin has recorded at least six receptions over his last six games. He has been a target monster recently, averaging 11.5 targets per game in the previous four weeks. The 26-year-old has a plus matchup against the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. Seattle ranks 21st in DVOA against the opposing WR2s. The former third-round pick has yet to find the end zone, catching 42 passes for 404 yards over seven games. Godwin has more fantasy appeal in PPR formats but remains a solid start in all leagues against the Seahawks in Week 10.
