  • Buccaneers' Antonio Brown: Season-low numbers in loss

    Brown brought in two of three targets for 11 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday. He also returned one punt for two yards.

    Brown had given fantasy managers reason for optimism with his ascending numbers over the previous two games, but Sunday brought season-low figures across the board. The speedy veteran was regularly passed over in the passing game in favor of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski despite Tom Brady putting the ball up a robust 41 times. Brown will look to further acclimate to coach Bruce Arians' offense during the upcoming bye week before reemerging for a Week 14 battle against the Vikings.

  • Buccaneers' Ronald Jones: Shines with pair of big plays

    Jones rushed nine times for 66 yards and secured one of two targets for a 37-yard touchdown in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Jones' fantasy day was made by a 30-yard-plus play apiece on the ground and through the air. The latter resulted in the Buccaneers' first touchdown of the afternoon and qualified as the first receiving score of Jones' career. The third-year back's rushing tally was a welcome boost from the 24 yards he'd mustered in Week 11 against the Rams, and while his overall workload Sunday still left plenty to be desired, Jones' fantasy managers will hope for a game script conducive to more volume in a Week 14 matchup against the Vikings after the Buccaneers' Week 13 bye.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Stays busy in close loss

    Godwin secured eight of nine targets for 97 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Godwin finished with a team high in receptions while checking in second in receiving yardage to Rob Gronkowski. The fourth-year wideout also tied Mike Evans for the team lead in targets and will head into the Buccaneers' Week 13 bye with a combined 21-242-1 line over his last three games. Godwin also has no fewer than six targets and as many as 10 in each of his eight contests thus far, giving him a coveted fantasy floor ahead of a Week 14 battle versus the Vikings following the upcoming week off.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Pair of scores in loss

    Evans hauled in three of nine targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Evans certainly made the most of his handful of receptions, and he even fought through what appeared to be an ankle issue that caused him to limp off for a play in the second half. The big wideout's connection with Tom Brady wasn't operating on all cylinders, however, as evidenced by both his poor catch rate and the fact Brady's second interception of the day came on a pass intended for Evans in which there appeared to be some degree of miscommunication. Nevertheless, fantasy managers walked away pleased with the pair of end-zone trips, which extended Evans' scoring streak to three games and left the seven-year veteran just one touchdown away from equaling the career-high 12 he's notched in two other seasons. Evans will look to carry over his momentum into a Week 14 battle against the Vikings after resting up over the Buccaneers' Week 13 bye.

  • Buccaneers' Rob Gronkowski: Eclipses century mark in loss

    Gronkowski secured six of seven targets for 106 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

    The former Pro Bowler put together his first 100-yard effort since Week 14 of the 2018 season, with 29- and 48-yard grabs accounting for the majority of his tally on the afternoon. Gronkowski has repeatedly demonstrated he still has the wheels to beat downfield coverage this season, and Sunday's production was a welcome haul for fantasy managers after the veteran had posted a combined 5-78-1 line over the prior three games. Having busted out of that slump, Gronkowski will now need to carry over the momentum into a Week 14 battle against the Vikings following the Buccaneers' bye.

  • Buccaneers' Tom Brady: Hangs tough in losing effort

    Brady completed 27 of 41 passes for 345 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday. He also lost a yard on his one rush.

    Brady's final line was solid from a fantasy perspective, though he only began to really hit his stride in the latter stages of the first half. The 21-year veteran broke the ice with a 37-yard scoring toss to Ronald Jones, and he then made things interesting with a pair of touchdown passes to Mike Evans in the fourth quarter. However, ball security also continued to be an issue, with Brady short-circuiting a pair of third-quarter drives with interceptions. The future Hall of Famer did at least finish the game with some momentum by spearheading 75- and 73-yard scoring marches, and it remains to be seen if he'll be able to carry over the momentum into a Week 14 home battle against the Vikings following a Week 13 bye.

  • Buccaneers' Donovan Smith: Active Sunday

    Smith (ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus Kansas City, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The 27-year-old suffered the ankle injury last Monday against the Rams and was unable to practice this week, but he's still good to go Sunday against the Chiefs. Smith will take up his usual post at left tackle for Tampa Bay.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Inactive Week 12

    Vaughn (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 12 contest against the Chiefs, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    The rookie running back continues to lose out on active status to veteran LeSean McCoy, even though the latter is not seeing any work behind Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette. Vaughn's next opportunity for game action will come in Week 14 against the Vikings following the Buccaneers' Week 13 bye.

  • Buccaneers' Ali Marpet: Returns for Week 12

    Marpet (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Marpet missed Week 11 while in the concussion protocol, but he was able to return to practice as a full participant this week. The 27-year-old should reclaim his starting spot at left guard for the Bucs.

  • Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Shifts to COVID list

    Vea (leg) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The 25-year-old was ruled out for the season after suffering a fractured leg Week 5, so this is strictly a procedural move. Vea will move back to injured reserve once he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols.

  • Buccaneers' Jack Cichy: Returns from IR

    Cichy (hamstring) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The 24-year-old has been sidelined since Week 5 due to the hamstring injury, but he's ready to go for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs. Cichy should reclaim his role on special teams for the Bucs.

  • Buccaneers' A.Q. Shipley: Placed on injured reserve

    Shipley (neck) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Shipley is facing a career-threatening injury. Coach Bruce Arians acknowledged as much and mentioned in his comments to the media that Shipley would transition to become a coach on his staff. Shipley has yet to formally retire, though it sounds as if his days on the field are over.
