  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Chunk gain on one catch

    Palmer brought in one of two targets for 20 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-17 win over the Bears on Sunday.

    Palmer managed to make an impact with his one touch, which came during an allotment of 35 snaps from scrimmage. He notably logged only three more plays on offense than presumptive No. 4 wideout Deven Thompkins, however, an even smaller gap than in Week 1 when Palmer edged Thompkins by a 23-18 margin. The two speedsters will likely continue sharing complementary wideout snaps pretty closely for the foreseeable future, but the majority of Baker Mayfield's attention figures to continue centered on Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rachaad White and Cade Otton.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Finds end zone in Week 1 win

    Palmer brought in two of three targets for eight yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 20-17 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

    Palmer checked in far behind position mates Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in overall production, but he joined Evans in crossing the goal line on the afternoon. The speedy rookie utilized his wheels on the crossing route that resulted in his third-quarter seven-yard scoring grab, one that capped an impressive 16-play 75-yard march and snapped a 10-10 tie. Palmer appears to have a solid hold on the No. 3 receiver role for the time being despite fellow speedster Deven Thompkins also putting some good play on film Sunday, and he could have some opportunities for downfield success against a vulnerable Bears secondary during a Week 2 home matchup.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Looking good for No. 3 job

    Palmer appears to have earned the Buccaneers' No. 3 receiver spot, according to Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times.

    The sixth-round rookie scored a pair of touchdowns this preseason, making the most of his opportunity after projected No. 3 receiver Russell Gage suffered a season-ending knee injury. Palmer could still share snaps with fellow rookie Rakim Jarrett or second-year pro Deven Thompkins, with roles partially depending on how much time the Bucs want Chris Godwin (and to a lesser extent Mike Evans) spending in the slot. Palmer is more likely to get snaps outside, sporting 4.33 speed at 6-foot, whereas the 5-foot-8 Thompkins would figure to get most of his work from the slot and push Godwin outside in three-wide formations. Given Godwin's track record of success working the middle of the field, it's no surprise the Bucs are leaning toward Palmer -- a perimeter deep threat -- as the No. 3 receiver. It probably won't be a high-volume role in terms of targets so long as Godwin and Evans (groin) both are available, which should be the case Week 1 at Minnesota.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Impressive finish to preseason

    Palmer secured two of three targets for 25 yards, returned one kickoff for 26 yards and ran back two punts for 29 yards in the Buccaneers' 26-20 preseason win over the Ravens on Saturday night. He also fumbled once but recovered.

    Palmer played a relatively modest 13 snaps, but that's actually a good sign. The rookie has undoubtedly done enough to earn a roster spot after scoring a touchdown in both of the first two preseason games and then turning in a solid all-around effort on a per-touch basis Saturday night. The speedy sixth-round pick could have the inside track to opening the season as the No. 3 receiver in a Week 1 road matchup against the Vikings.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Remarkable TD in preseason win

    Palmer brought in his only target for a 33-yard touchdown in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday night. He also returned one kickoff for 22 yards.

    The rookie's stock already theoretically went up this past week with the season-ending knee injury suffered by Russell Gage, which came just days after Palmer put together a solid 4-33-1 line in his pro debut. The sixth-round pick followed that up with another trip to the end zone Saturday night, one that came with Palmer making a remarkable catch in which he tipped the ball to himself in the end zone while in tight coverage. Palmer appears to naturally be a lock for a roster spot, and his recent trajectory suggests he might have a chance of clawing his way into the No. 3 role with another strong showing in next Saturday night's preseason finale against the Ravens.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Opportunity knocks with Gage injury

    Palmer, a rookie sixth-round pick, is in line for an increase in snaps and targets in the wake of the season-ending knee injury Russell Gage suffered in a joint practice with the Jets on Wednesday, Jeremy Fowler and Jenna Laine of report.

    Gage logged 70 targets, including 18 in the red zone, over 13 regular-season games last season, although that also came with Tom Brady at quarterback and both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin missing games due to injury. Nevertheless, Palmer -- who recorded a touchdown in the preseason-opening loss to the Steelers and also had a stellar practice Wednesday that included a long catch against star cornerback Sauce Gardner, per Scott Smith of the team's official site -- should be in for a notable bump in his fantasy outlook considering the additional opportunities that could await him.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Finds end zone in preseason opener

    Palmer brought in all four targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 27-17 preseason loss to the Steelers on Friday night. He also returned two kickoffs for 54 yards.

    Palmer's name hadn't appeared in too many daily training camp reports leading into Friday night's preseason opener, but the rookie sixth-round pick sparked plenty of attention with his impressive performance. Palmer hauled in an eight-yard back-corner touchdown grab from Baker Mayfield in the second quarter, niftily tapping both feet just inbounds. The speedster also ripped off a 32-yard kickoff return on one of his two touches in that capacity, making a strong first in-game impression in his bid for a roster spot.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Speedy wideout heads to Tampa

    The Buccaneers selected Palmer in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 191st overall.

    Palmer (6-feet, 192 pounds) was initially a standout recruit for LSU but transferred to Nebraska after struggling to earn playing time with the Tigers. Palmer's one season with Nebraska was a major success as his 4.33 speed made him a feared big-play threat in the Big Ten, resulting in 71 receptions for 1,043 yards and nine touchdowns on 111 targets. Palmer's speed makes him a credible downfield decoy if nothing else, but the issue is that he really might not be much more than that. Palmer's speed is real, but he cuts down the field like a javelin -- fast, but inflexible and bound to a rigid course -- so when anything goes slightly off schedule Palmer pretty much derails. If his skill set can add more polish then Palmer's tools would become more interesting.
