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.

Expect to see a lot of Timothy Wright, Brandon Myers
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Buccaneers will likely use both of their tight ends this season with Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers expected to split time and play in tandem, reports ESPN.

The report says "Wright did some nice things as a rookie last season, but Wright is limited as a blocker. That’s why the Bucs brought in Brandon Myers. He can contribute as a blocker and a receiver."

The Bucs aren't likely to use a fullback very often, which means there could be a lot of two-tight-end sets.
