  • Chris Godwin, LeSean McCoy Ruled Out For Thursday Night

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Justin Watson (shoulder) and running back LeSean McCoy (ankle) have been ruled out for the Thursday night game against the Bears. Godwin didn't play in the Week 4 win over the Chargers and wasn't ready to go on a short week. The Bears have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts this year, but No. 1 wideout Mike Evans remains a must-start in fantasy, especially with Godwin missing another contest. Scotty Miller had five catches (seven targets) for 83 yards and his first touchdown of the year last week, so he'll be in play as a deep league flex. With McCoy out and Leonard Fournette unlikely to play again, it'll once again be Ronald Jones II and Ke'Shawn Vaughn sharing backfield duties. Jones will be in play as an RB2, while Vaughn has some flex appeal in deep PPR leagues.

  • LeSean McCoy Has Grade 2 Ankle Sprain

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy (ankle) suffered a Grade 2 ankle sprain in the Week 4 win over the Chargers, according to a source. The injury will most likely keep him out of Thursday night's matchup against the Bears in Week 5. Consider McCoy week-to-week for now. Shady just hasn't been much of a factor in Tampa in a backfield that also includes Leonard Fournette, Ronald Jones II and rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn. In four games this year, McCoy has two carries for minus-two yards and nine catches on 13 targets for 55 yards. Fournette sat out of Week 4 with an injury, allowing the rookie Vaughn to catch two passes for 22 yards and his first touchdown. Vaughn will have some deep-league PPR appeal with McCoy out in the short term, especially if Fournette misses another game, too.

  • LeSean McCoy Questionable To Return Against Chargers

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy (ankle) is questionable to return in Week 4 against the Chargers. The Buccaneers are already without Leonard Fournette, so if McCoy is unable to return, they'll have to rely heavily on Ronald Jones II the rest of the way.

  • LeSean McCoy Has Minimal Fantasy Appeal

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy was targeted seven times in Week 2, which is just enough times to make him semi-interesting as a rosterable option in deep leagues. His complete lack of involvement in the run game and 18 percent snap rate show just how risky of an option he is, though, and he should be barely on the fantasy radar in Week 3 against the Broncos. Maybe in a 16-team league, you throw the dart at him and hope the targets continue, but otherwise steer clear of the veteran rusher.

  • LeSean McCoy Catches Five Passes

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy hauled in five of seven targets for 26 receiving yards in Week 2. McCoy also handled one carry, though he went backwards on it. The veteran back was expected to occupy some sort of pass-catching role for Tampa Bay and he was able to do that well, helping to fill the void in the offense left by the absence of Chris Godwin (head). With Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones II occupying most of the backfield touches, McCoy is mostly an afterthought for fantasy purposes.

  • LeSean McCoy To Play Integral Part In Offense

    Indications are that Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy will still play an integral part in the offense this year, particularly in the passing game and on third downs. Color us skeptical after the Bucs inked Leonard Fournette to a one-year deal on Wednesday night. Tampa has talked up Ronald Jones II during training camp and also have Dare Ogunbowale and rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn who can contribute on passing downs. This backfield got really messy with the Fournette signing, and it could cause fantasy managers headaches in the early going as we try to sort this situation out. Shady is in the twilight of his career at this point and is likely to only receive a handful of touches (if that) per week.

  • LeSean McCoy Signs One-Year Deal With Buccaneers

    Free agent running back LeSean McCoy has signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The deal is worth just over $1 million according to Ian Rapoport. The veteran back is a good depth signing for Tampa Bay, who was in need of a proven pass-catching back. While McCoy is far from the running back he used to be, he still compiled the best yards per touch mark last year since 2016 and has caught at least 25 passes in each season. Unfortunately, this makes drafting Ronald Jones II and Ke'Shawn Vaughn less appealing now that there's a third back in the room. It's probably a backfield to avoid in fantasy for the moment, though in a perfect world this move pushes Jones II to new heights.
