Josh McCown in comfort zone with tall receivers
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown shined with the Bears last year in part because he had big targets to throw to in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Now his top two receivers are 6-5, 230-pounders, Vincent Jackson and rookie Mike Evans. 

"I'd be lying if I didn't say there was a comfort zone in that,'' McCown told the Tampa Tribune after going through his first workout with Jackson and Evans. "It's very similar (to what I had in Chicago), at least on paper. There's still a lot of work to do. We have to get out there and (Evans) has to learn the offense and we have to start building together, but it was good."

McCown completed 66.5 percent of his throws for 1,829 yards and 13 touchdowns against one interception last season.

Josh McCown reaching new heights with addition of Mike Evans
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said Josh McCown will benefit having big weapons like Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans , reports ESPN. Both receivers stand at least 6-foot-4.

Smith said McCown had the advantage of throwing to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery last season with the Bears, and he likes that formula for the passing game.

"We want to score points in any way we can,"’ Smith said. "This is a combination that looked pretty attractive to us. Of course, having a player like Josh McCown here – Josh, of course, has been in that situation and to say Josh has been in our ear quite a bit is an understatement. Seeing that [combination in Chicago] work like that was attractive to us, but as much as anything, we saw a playmaker on the offensive side of the ball that we had a chance to get that we really felt like could help us."

Bucs make smart pick with Mike Evans
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Josh McCown had great success in 2013 with the Bears when he stepped in for the injured Jay Cutler in part because of his receiving corps with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

He doesn't have that same talent with the Buccaneers, but he might not be far off following the NFL Draft. The Bucs drafted Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans at No. 7 overall, and he will join Vincent Jackson as the starters in Tampa Bay.

Now, this doesn't elevate McCown to a starting Fantasy quarterback, but it definitely helps his outlook. Jackson will remain a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver, and Evans has plenty of sleeper appeal with a late-round pick in seasonal leagues.

The Bucs are going to be run-first with Doug Martin, but now they have a legitimate receiving corps, including quality tight ends in Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers.

In dynasty leagues, plan on drafting Evans with a first-round pick, and he will likely be selected in Round 8 or later in re-draft formats.

No doubt Josh McCown ahead of Mike Glennon
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

There is no doubt who will be the No. 1 quarterback for the Buccaneers during minicamp, and that's Josh McCown, reports ESPN. Mike Glennon will work with the second team.

The report says if Glennon is going to have any chance at surpassing McCown, he'll have to thoroughly outplay him in training camp and the preseason. The report adds this is McCown's job to lose, as expected.

Josh McCown 'impressed' with Vincent Jackson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown started throwing with his No. 1 receiver Vincent Jackson on Friday. McCown said he came away impressed.

McCown said in an interview with CBSSports.com that he's worked with some top-notch receivers in his career -- Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery -- and Jackson is "right there with those guys."

"I'm very, very impressed with him," McCown said. "You know when you have one of those special guys. You can tell the first time you work with him, you see it and feel it. That was the case throwing with Vincent. You can see why he's been so good for so long because of his work ethic and his attention to detail."
