  Buccaneers | Leonard Fournette questionable    Sat Dec 3, 03:29 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hip) was a full participant in practice on Saturday, Dec. 3, but is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Footballguys view: It's a good sign that Fournette was a full participant on Saturday. The Buccaneers play the Saints on Monday night in Week 13. Fournette is going to split time with rookie RB Rachaad White. If both backs are out there in some sort of rotation, White and Fournette should be seen as flex options by Fantasy GMs.

  Buccaneers | Leonard Fournette practicing Friday    Fri Dec 2, 11:43 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hip) was spotted at practice Friday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: Fournette should play and split work with Rachaad White. It's not clear who the lead back will be and it could be the dreaded hot hand approach at least for this week. Consider them both what the heck flex plays against the Saints Monday night.

  Buccaneers | Russell Gage back to work Thursday    Thu Dec 1, 01:16 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Russell Gage Jr. (hamstring) returned to practice for the first time since Week 7 on Thursday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Good news for Gage and the Bucs here. We'll see what he can do during the week of practice as the team prepares for a Monday night game against the Saints. He'll be no.4 in the wide receiver pecking order so long as guys like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Julio Jones stay healthy.

  Buccaneers | Leonard Fournette practicing Thursday    Thu Dec 1, 12:02 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hip) practiced Thursday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Fournette should be out there on Monday night against the Saints in Week 13. Fantasy GMs know he's going to split time with rookie RB Rachaad White, so expect Fournette to perform more like a flex play with this workload. Let's see what Fournette can do on Saturday to determine whether or not he's going to play and just how involved he will be.

X-rays were negative, and he was in a walking boot after the game. There is hope that his injury is not as severe as anticipated, it might not be as long terms as it could be.

  Buccaneers | Two receptions for Mike Evans    Sun Nov 27, 05:50 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans registered two receptions for 31 yards on nine targets in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Evans was quiet with the conditions limiting downfield passing and Chris Godwin gobbling up short receptions to keep the chains moving. We'll wait to see if Marshon Lattimore is healthy enough to face Evans next week when the Saints come to Tampa.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin has high volume day    Sun Nov 27, 05:39 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin registered 12 receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns. It was his first 100-yard game of the season, and he now has touchdowns in back-to-back games. The 12 catches were his most since a 15-reception afternoon against the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 5, 2021, also on the road.

Footballguys view: Godwin looks like he's completely back from his 2021 ACL tear. The limitations of the Bucs offense will keep him as Tom Brady's top target going forward. He looks like a PPR WR1 going forward.

  Buccaneers | Julio Jones gets four total touches    Sun Nov 27, 05:38 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Julio Jones posted three receptions for 40 yards on four targets in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, and he posted a 15-yard run on his only attempt.

  Buccaneers | Rachaad White leads the backfield    Sun Nov 27, 05:35 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Rachaad White rushed 14 times for a team-high 64 yards in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns while adding nine receptions for 45 yards on nine targets.

Footballguys view: White was about as successful as anyone could have hoped for in a limp Bucs running game, and he was a frequent target for Tom Brady to boost the rookie to a strong showing in PPR leagues. If Leonard Fournette is out next week against the Saints, White should be in lineups as an RB2, and White could still maintain startable value even after Fournette returns.

  Buccaneers | Tom Brady throws two TDs in OT loss    Sun Nov 27, 05:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 29-of-43 passes for 246 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns while running for two yards.

Footballguys view: Brady battled the conditions and a tough Browns pass rush in the bitter loss. He is leveling off as a high floor QB1 in fantasy with Chris Godwin back in form, but there is little margin of error in the division race with only a half game lead on the Falcons and the Saints coming to town next week.

  Buccaneers | Tristan Wirfs carted off in overtime    Sun Nov 27, 04:18 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OT Tristan Wirfs (leg) suffered an apparent serious leg injury in overtime of the Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns. The training staff immediately brought an air cast out along with a cart, and players from both teams took a knee around him as he was being tended to.

Footballguys view: The Bucs pass blocking has already been a sore spot for the team, so they can not afford to lose a starting tackle. The Saints are up next, which is usually a bad matchup for Brady, and it just got worse.

  Buccaneers | Giovani Bernard activated    Sat Nov 26, 02:13 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Giovani Bernard (ankle) was activated from injured reserve on Saturday, Nov. 26. In addition, the Bucs waived LB JJ Russell and elevated LB Ulysees Gilbert from the practice squad for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Bernard comes back to a backfield without Leonard Fournette in Week 12. Fournette is missing time with a hip injury, and that means rookie RB Rachaad White will be the lead back. Bernard will likely be the primary backup to White on Sunday.

  Buccaneers | Leonard Fournette ruled out    Sat Nov 26, 02:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hip) was downgraded from doubtful to out for Week 12 on Saturday, Nov. 26.

  Buccaneers | Rachaad White ready for bigger role    Sat Nov 26, 12:53 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Rachaad White is ready for a bigger role, offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said on Thursday, Nov. 24. 'I think it was excellent to see him go out there and play an extended amount of snaps [in Week 11],' Leftwich said. 'I don't know if he was ready for that many earlier. We saw the gifts that he had early but... we're here with him every day, so we knew we had to get him to the point he could handle that type of load. He's there now. So it was good to see him go out and play and show the skill set that he's got, show the skill set that we like.'

Footballguys view: We're ready for White to have a larger role as well. White has been patiently waiting for more opportunity, and the rookie certainly has the speed and explosiveness to be a playmaker for the Bucs' offense. He's the starter in Week 12 against the Browns with Leonard Fournette (hip) out of action. White is an RB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs on Sunday.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Russell Gage Jr. (hamstring) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns. OG Luke Goedeke (foot) was limited in practice all week and has also been ruled out. RB Leonard Fournette (hip) was limited in practice all week and is listed as doubtful. NT Vita Vea (foot) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is listed as questionable. LB Lavonte David (rest), WR Mike Evans (rest) and DE Akiem Hicks (rest) did not practice Friday but are expected to play. CB Zyon McCollum (concussion), LB JJ Russell (hamstring), QB Tom Brady (rest) and WR Julio Jones (rest) practiced in full Friday and no longer on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Rachaad White will get the start and Ke'Shawn Vaughn will back him up unless Fournette rallies from a hip injury. White will be a solid RB2 play with PPR punch against a Cleveland defense that the Buffalo running game came alive against last week.
