Buccaneers' Adarius Taylor: Decent in loss
Taylor recorded six tackles (four solo) and one pass defended in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Saints.
The Florida Atlantic product was able to record at least six tackles for the second time in the last five games Sunday. The interim linebacker will likely continue to have opportunities to make tackles from his middle linebacker position in coordinator Mark Duffner's scheme. Taylor and the Buccaneers will be tasked with trying to slow down the Ravens in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Carl Nassib: Records sack in loss
Nassib had three tackles (three solo) and one sack in Sunday's loss to the Saints.
Nassib was unable to record a fantasy relevant stat last week but bounced back with a sack Sunday. The Penn State product now has 6.5 sacks on the season, and will face the Ravens in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Adam Humphries: Modest stat line in division loss
Humphries brought in four of eight targets for 42 yards in the Buccaneers' 28-14 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
Humphries co-led the team in receptions on the afternoon, but he was unable to replicate some of the downfield success he'd enjoyed in recent games. The fourth-year receiver continues to enjoy a steady role in the passing game, however, as he now has six or more targets in six of his last eight games. Humphries will look to boost his numbers back up against the Ravens in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Peyton Barber: Struggles for running room in loss
Barber rushed 14 times for 42 yards and brought in one of his two targets for two yards in the Buccaneers' 28-14 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
It was yet another frustrating afternoon on the ground for Barber, who found running room at a premium against one of the NFL's stingiest run defenses. The second-year back now has been under 50 rushing yards in three straight games, and he's managed no better than Sunday's 3.0 yards per carry in any of those contests. Barber has a firm grasp on the lead-back role, but there may be no other team in the league at the moment in which that job has less value. He'll have an uphill battle to improve on his numbers against the dominant Ravens defense Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Leads team in tackles
David recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Saints.
David was able to lead his team in tackles for the game and record his second consecutive game with double digit tackles. The Nebraska product continues to be a strong IDP option, accumulating 93 tackles (74 solo) in just 11 games. David will look to keep it going against the Ravens in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Leads pass catchers in loss
Evans brought in four of his six targets for 86 yards in the Buccaneers' 28-14 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
Evans hauled in his game-long 36-yard reception early in the first quarter, and he was quiet for a good portion of the game thereafter. However, he still finished tops on the team in receiving yards and drew even with Adam Humphries and Jacquizz Rodgers for most receptions. Evans has been productive on the latter front in particular of late, as he's amassed between Sunday's 86 yards and 120 yards in three of his past four contests. Now just 115 yards away from eclipsing his career high of 1,321, Evans will look to continue building towards that total against the Ravens in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Inaccurate in divisional loss
Winston completed 18 of 38 passes for 213 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Buccaneers' 28-14 loss to the Saints on Sunday. He also rushed five times for 47 yards.
Winston's completion percentage dipped under 50.0 percent for the first time this season, although he did extend his streak of two-touchdown games to four. The four-year pro also posted a season-low 5.6 YPA, but he continued to provide some unexpected production on the ground by rushing for over 45 yards for a second consecutive week. Winston's one interception came on a last-gasp heave to Mike Evans with nine seconds remaining, a pass Marshon Lattimore brought down in the end zone. Winston will look to improve his overall numbers against the formidable Ravens defense in a Week 15 interconference battle.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Kevin Minter: Exits Sunday's game
Minter sustained a calf injury and will not return to Sunday's game against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
The severity of the injury remains unclear, but Minter will be unavailable for the remainder of Sunday's game. Cameron Lynch is the remaining reserve linebacker active for the Buccaneers.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Active in Week 14
Pierre-Paul (knee) is active in Week 14 against the Saints.
Pierre-Paul will thus be available to continue his stellar debut Bucs campaign without interruption and will try to add to his 11 sacks while trying to help the Buccaneers contain Drew Brees in Sunday's divisional tilt.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Brent Grimes: Active in Week 14
Grimes (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 14 game against the Saints.
The veteran corner will thus make his return after a one-game absence. Grimes will look to help a Buccaneers secondary that picked off Cam Newton four times in Week 13 turn in another stellar effort versus the formidable challenge of Drew Brees and company.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Doubtful for Week 14
Davis (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Davis was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday, but he's trending towards sitting out Sunday's tilt against the Saints. With M.J. Stewart (foot) also nursing an injury, De'Vante Harris could be in line for an increased snap count in Week 14.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Brent Grimes: Questionable for Sunday
Grimes (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Grimes was a full participant in practice all week and is trending towards suiting up Week 14. If he's able to take the field against the Saints on Sunday, expect Grimes to play his usual starting role.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Isaiah Johnson: Won't play Week 14
Johnson (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Johnson was unable to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol in time for Sunday's tilt against the Saints and will remain sidelined. With Justin Evans (toe) also ruled out, Andrew Adams could be in line to start at strong safety.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Justin Evans: Won't play Sunday
Evans (toe) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Evans was unable to practice in any capacity this week. The second-year safety will remain sidelined Week 14 as he continues to manage a lingering toe injury. With Isaiah Johnson (concussion) also ruled out, Andrew Adams could draw the start at strong safety.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Officially listed as questionable
Pierre-Paul (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Pierre-Paul was able to participate in Friday's practice on a limited basis after having been sidelined to begin the week. The veteran defensive end was able to play through his lingering knee issue during last week's win over the Panthers, but it remains to be seen whether he'll suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Saints....

Buccaneers' DeSean Jackson: Officially out for Week 14
The Buccaneers list Jackson (thumb) as out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Jackson failed to practice in any capacity this week, making it inevitable that he would be ruled out for a second straight contest. Chris Godwin benefited the most from Jackson's absence in the Week 13 win over the Panthers, pulling in five of six targets for 101 yards and a touchdown. The second-year wideout could continue to earn plenty of attention from quarterback Jameis Winston on Sunday with the Saints expected to have top cornerback Marshon Lattimore trail Mike Evans for most of the day....

Buccaneers' DeSean Jackson: Another absence likely
Offensive coordinator Todd Monken admitted after Friday's practice that Jackson (thumb) is unlikely to play Sunday against the Saints, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
The news comes as little surprise after Jackson sat out the Buccaneers' Week 13 win over the Panthers, then failed to practice Wednesday through Friday. The Buccaneers haven't provided an official injury designation for Jackson yet, but it's expected the team will label him as doubtful or out when they release their final Week 14 practice report later Friday. With Jackson's second straight absence imminent, Chris Godwin should benefit from an uptick in snaps while working as the Bucs' primary downfield threat.... See More ... See Less
