Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Helps shut down Chiefs in Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean, who totaled four solo tackles and a pass breakup Sunday during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, finished the 2020 regular season with 62 tackles (51 solo), one interception and a touchdown across 14 games.

The second-year cornerback took a big step forward in terms of playing time in 2020, upping his total snaps from scrimmage from 374 to 708 despite playing just one more game than in his rookie season. Dean wasn't quite as prolific in getting his hands on the ball -- he broke up an impressive 17 passes overall in 2019, including two interceptions -- but he allowed a pedestrian 55.9 percent completion rate and 5.6 yards per attempt in primary coverage. He followed up the regular season with a strong playoff run, racking up 16 tackles (15 solo) in four games.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Solid in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean recorded six tackles (four solo), including two for loss, in the Buccaneers' 31-27 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Dean was solid from an IDP perspective in his return from a groin injury that cost him the last pair of contests, checking in third on the team in tackles for the afternoon. The 24-year-old didn't get his hands on any passes, but he was essentially blameless in the 10-catch, 163-yard scorching Calvin Ridley applied to the Buccaneers secondary, with only a short reception by the talented wideout coming against Dean. The 2019 third-round pick boasts a career-high 54 tackles (43 solo) for the season, but he's well behind the pace of the 17 pass breakups he recorded during his rookie campaign.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Dean is coming off two straight absences due to a lingering groin issue, but it now looks as though he's back to full health. The second-year cornerback looks on track to slot back into the lineup in Atlanta on Sunday, barring any setbacks.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Managing practice reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (groin) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Dean missed the last two games with the groin issue, but he appears to be working his way back to a return. The Auburn product will likely need to continue to practice in some capacity this week if he wants to return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Falcons. If Dean were to miss a third straight game, Ryan Smith and Ross Cockrell would continue to handle an uptick in snaps.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Unavailable against Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Dean will miss a second consecutive game, likely opening the door for Ross Cockrell to handle a major workload in Week 14. After logging a limited practice session Friday, Dean is making progress toward a potential return in Week 15 against the Falcons.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Doubtful with groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (groin) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio reports.

Coach Bruce Arians said earlier Friday that Dean would be a game-time decision, but it's more likely than not that the decision will be to keep the cornerback out. He practiced on a limited basis Friday after missing this week's first two sessions, so Dean is at least trending in the right direction in his quest to take the field for the first time since Week 11.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Will be game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Dean (groin) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Dean managed to clear the concussion protocol Wednesday, but he's since been dealing with a groin injury. The second-year cornerback hasn't played since Week 11, and it looks like a final word on his status against the Vikings may not come until inactives are released on game day.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Clears protocol, but DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that Dean has cleared the concussion protocol but won't practice due to a groin injury, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

That Dean has fully cleared the concussion protocol is certainly encouraging, but it seems as though his groin injury could be serious enough to jeopardize his status for Week 14. The second-year pro will have two more chances to practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (concussion) was participating at practice Tuesday, Jenna Laine of reports.

The 24-year-old has yet to fully clear the concussion protocol, but he's made enough progress to get on the practice field. Dean will need to fully clear the protocol to have a chance of suiting up Sunday against the Vikings.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Will practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (concussion) has been cleared from concussion protocol and will practice Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Dean was ruled out of the Week 12 matchup against the Chiefs because of concussion protocol, but the second-year pro appears poised to miss just one game. The 24-year-old has already recorded 48 tackles (39 solo) this season and should continue to add to that total as he returns to his cornerback duties.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Unavailable for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Chiefs' relentless pass attack is coming to town in Week 12, and the Buccaneers will be without Dean, a starting cornerback. Through 11 games, Dean has given up 319 yards and three touchdowns in coverage. Sean Murphy-Bunting and Carlton Davis will continue to handle starting roles, while Ross Cockrell is expected to slot into Dean's role.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Diagnosed with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean was placed in the league's five-step concussion protocol following Monday's loss to the Rams, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Dean will need to recover on a slightly shortened week in order to play this Sunday against the Chiefs. Coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that if Dean is unable to play in Week 12, Ross Cockrell will take over a starting cornerback role.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Headed for further evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean left Monday night's game against the Rams due to a head injury and is being evaluated for a concussion, Jenna Laine of reports.

Dean appeared to suffer the injury during the second half, and his return is questionable at this point.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (illness) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

Dean missed Wednesday's practice with the undisclosed illness, so it's certainly positive news so see him back on the field so quick. The 2019 third-round pick has been stellar this campaign, logging 39 tackles (33 solo) and an interception through eight games. Now healthy, he'll slot into his usual role as a depth cornerback for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Falls ill Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean (illness) didn't suit up in Wednesday's practice.

It's unclear how serious the illness is, but it's not expected to be COIVD-19-related. Playing all eight games to this point, the Auburn product has racked up a solid 39 tackles (33 solo), six pass breakups and an interception. If Dean is forced to miss Sunday's game against the Saints, Ross Cockrell would be in line for a slight uptick in snaps.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Tallies seven tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean furnished seven tackles (six solo) in the Buccaneers' 25-23 win over the Giants on Monday night.

Dean's tackle tally served as a co-team-high figure. The second-year cornerback has been a solid performer on the tackle front in the majority of games, registering at least six stops in four games. Dean is also doing a solid job in coverage, yielding an acceptable 54.8 completion percentage and pedestrian 72.4 quarterback rating through eight contests.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Notches pick-six off Rodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean posted two tackles (one solo) and recorded a pick-six in the Buccaneers' 38-10 win over the Packers on Sunday.

The 2019 third-round pick jumped Davante Adams' out route on the left side of the field late in the second quarter and returned the resulting interception 32 yards for a touchdown to notch the first six of the Buccaneers' 38 unanswered points. While it was the first interception of the season for Dean, he already has six defensed passes overall and has also surpassed his 2019 tally of 21 stops by seven tackles in seven fewer games. Much like fellow corner Carlton Davis, Dean is developing into a disruptive force in a Buccaneers defense that's rather quietly surrendering the sixth-fewest passing yards per game (217.7) thus far in 2020.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Paces team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean totaled eight tackles (six solo) in the Buccaneers' 28-10 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

The 2019 third-round pick paced the Buccaneers in tackles on the afternoon on his way to a season-high figure in stops. Dean ended up playing a robust 55 snaps in the contest after Sean Murphy-Bunting exited the game early with a hamstring injury, and the 23-year-old may be in line for a start at right cornerback in Sunday's home battle against the Chargers if his teammate is sidelined.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Racks up stops in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean recorded seven tackles (all solo) in the Buccaneers' 34-23 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Dean was very active despite playing on just 35 snaps (51 percent) from scrimmage, posting the highest tackle total of any Buccaneers defensive back. The 2019 third-round pick endured a couple of rough patches during his rookie campaign, but he ultimately allowed just a 38.8 percent completion rate on the 49 throws in which he was deemed to be the primary defender. However, part of the reason for Dean's elevated number of stops Sunday was due to catches in front of him -- he allowed all four passes thrown his way to be completed for 60 yards against the Saints.

Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Busy in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean totaled 21 tackles (16 solo), two interceptions and 17 passes defensed across 13 games during the 2019 season.

The rookie third-round pick was thrust into an expanded role in the second half of the season, logging 41 or more snaps in six of his last nine contests. Dean responded well overall to his baptism by fire, impressively breaking up four or more passes in three separate contests. Although he had a couple of rough patches, Dean ultimately allowed just a 38.0 percent completion rate on passes as the primary defender, and his ball-hawking ways, which date back to a college career at Auburn during which he also picked off a pair of passes and broke up another 17, could boost his IDP value in 2020 if he's able to secure a starting job.
