Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Second-best tackle total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield collected nine tackles (four solo) in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Rams on Monday night.

The rookie safety and his secondary mates were extremely busy on a night when Jared Goff completed 39 of 51 pass attempts, which helped lead to the second-highest tackle total of Winfield's career thus far. The 22-year-old's numbers Monday night were especially welcome after he uncharacteristically posted just a single stop in the Week 10 win over the Panthers. Winfield will look to keep up his individual momentum and also help the Buccaneers secondary to a better performance in an unenviable matchup against the Chiefs in Week 12.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Key pass breakup in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield posted seven tackles (six solo) and successfully defensed a would-be game-tying two-point conversion pass attempt in the Buccaneers' 25-23 win over the Giants on Monday night.

The rookie was a co-team leader in tackles with multiple teammates and came up with one of the key plays of the night on defense, although it didn't come without controversy. Winfield appeared to arrive a tick early on a two-point conversion pass directed at Dion Lewis, but he turned his head toward the ball, which ended up deflecting off his arm, at the last second, which apparently played a part in having the officials pick up the flag they initially threw on the play. That proved the difference in the game, as the Buccaneers were able to kneel down on one last play following an onside kick recovery. Winfield has now posted five or more tackles in three of the last four games, giving him a solid floor heading into a pivotal Week 9 battle versus the Saints.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Ready for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield (shoulder/groin) will play in Monday's game versus the Giants.

Winfield upgraded to full participation for Saturday's practice, clearing him to play in the primetime showdown. The rookie second-round pick out of Minnesota has started every game this season, recording 37 tackles, two sacks, four pass breakups and an interception. Winfield is a solid IDP asset, especially against the turnover-prone Giants.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield (shoulder/groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Winfield managed to play through his lingering shoulder injury during Sunday's win over the Raiders, during which he recorded his first career interception, but he's now also dealing with a groin issue. The rookie safety will have two more chances to increase his level of practice activity ahead of Monday's game against the Giants.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Grabs first career pick in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield (shoulder) recorded two tackles (one solo) and recorded an interception in the Buccaneers' 45-20 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

The rookie safety recorded his first career interception at a key moment in the contest, picking off Derek Carr at the Raiders' 40-yard line with 7:09 remaining and the Buccaneers trying to protect an 11-point lead. The turnover set up Tom Brady and company at Las Vegas' 24-yard line following Winfield's 16-yard return and would directly lead to a touchdown for Tampa Bay two plays later, a score that essentially sealed the win. Winfield continued to log a heavy workload with a 98.0 percent snap share Sunday, and he's quickly proven a well-rounded IDP option with 37 total tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, four pass breakups and Sunday's interception.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Ready to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield (shoulder) will play in Sunday's game versus the Raiders.

Winfield was limited in practice all week, but it appears that was precautionary as the rookie second-rounder is good to go. The Minnesota product won the starting strong safety job out of training camp and has been productive through the first six games, registering 35 tackles, three pass breakups and two sacks.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Managing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury.

Wednesday marked the first time that the rookie from Minnesota was listed on the injury report, so it's unclear if the team is just managing his practice reps or the issue is more serious. Winfield is coming off a decent day in Week 6's win over Green Bay, racking up five tackles (three solo), while helping limited Aaron Jones to just 1.5 yards per carry. If Winfield was force to miss Week 7 against the Raiders, Mike Edwards would be in line for the start at strong safety.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Another solid tackle tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield furnished five tackles (three solo) in the Buccaneers' 38-10 win over the Packers on Sunday.

The rookie wasn't able to make any impact plays, but he had another solid day on the tackle front and helped limit Aaron Jones to a minuscule 1.5 yards per carry on 10 rush attempts. Winfield now has at least five stops in five of his first six contests, numbers that he's supplemented with two sacks, three defensed passes and a forced fumble.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Five stops in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield recorded five tackles (four solo) and one defensed pass in the Buccaneers' 20-19 loss to the Bears on Thursday night.

The rookie safety had a solid performance from an IDP perspective after totaling a season-low two stops against the Chargers in Week 4, checking in third in tackles on the night for the Bucs. Winfield has yet to record an interception through his first five career games, but he's already tallied a pair of sacks and broken up three passes to go along with 30 tackles (21 solo).

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Continues contributing in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield totaled six tackles (four solo), including a sack, and also defensed a pass in the Buccaneers' 28-10 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

The rookie wasn't quite as prolific on the tackling front as in the Week 2 win over the Panthers, but Winfield managed a sack for the second straight game and continued to be a key part of the Buccaneers' elite run defense. Through three career games, Winfield looks like the player raised under the tutelage of a former Pro Bowl cornerback that he is and appears to be a natural fit for coordinator Todd Bowles' aggressive scheme, one the 22-year-old reportedly picked up on quickly in training camp.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Disruptive presence in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield totaled 11 tackles (eight solo), including one sack, in the Buccaneers' 31-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

The rookie safety has immediately looked at home in coordinator Todd Bowles' scheme, leading to him recording the second-highest tackle tally on the Buccaneers in the victory. Winfield's run-stopping efforts helped keep the Panthers to 3.6 yards per rush, including 3.3 for All-Pro back Christian McCaffrey before he exited the contest in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Through two games, Winfield now has 17 total tackles, a pass breakup and Sunday's sack, confirming his top-shelf IDP value.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Active in pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield recorded six tackles (three solo) and defensed one pass in the Buccaneers' 34-23 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

As expected, the rookie drew the start at strong safety and more than held his own, helping limit legendary Saints signal-caller Drew Brees to 160 yards passing on 5.3 yards per attempt and the New Orleans ground attack to 2.4 yards per rush. Winfield repeatedly demonstrated his extremely well-rounded game during training camp practices, and his elevated tackle total in his first game as a pro appears to be an extension of the upside he demonstrated this summer.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Listed as starting safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield is listed as the starting strong safety on the first regular-season edition of the Buccaneers depth chart released Monday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The rookie capped off what was by all accounts a stellar training camp by garnering a starting job to officially kick off his NFL career. Winfield was extremely diligent during camp in learning the responsibilities of both strong safety and slot corner in coordinator Todd Bowles' complex scheme, and the coaching staff is highly intrigued by the fact the 22-year-old was not only up to the task, but managed to consistently make plays against both the first- and second-team offenses in practices.

Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Prepping for multiple positions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winfield, who's enjoying a standout camp, is being prepped to play both safety and slot corner during his rookie season, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. "He just makes plays every day," said coach Bruce Arians. "[There is] a lot of volume of information passed to him - he handles it really well. He executes the defense, he has great instincts. You can't stay out of practice very long [or] you're going to get beat out by him."

Winfield has seemingly made his presence felt in every practice thus far, displaying an excellent knack for finding the ball and demonstrating solid tackling technique as well. The rookie, the namesake of the three-time Pro Bowler who actually recorded an interception off current Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, notes he's used to having to prepare for multiple roles within a defense, having played nickel corner and both safety positions throughout his four-year career at the University of Minnesota. Winfield's standout plays in Sunday's practice included a pass breakup in the end zone during red-zone period, and Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports he followed it up with two big hits and an interception in Monday's session.
