Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Inconsistent in limited action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick completed five of 13 passes for 46 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the Buccaneers' 30-14 preseason win over the Titans on Saturday. He also rushed once for seven yards.

The veteran didn't look anywhere near as sharp as he had in the preseason opener, although he did lead a 14-play, 68-yard drive that culminated in a field goal. Fitzpatrick came up empty on two targets to Mike Evans during the opening possession, but he bounced back to hit Evans, Peyton Barber, Adam Humphries and Cameron Brate on the aforementioned successful series. Fitzpatrick is likely poised for a larger workload than the three drives he helmed Saturday when the Bucs take on the Lions next Friday in their third exhibition.

Buccaneers' Adam Humphries: Impressive in preseason win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries secured all three of his targets for 24 yards in the Buccaneers' 30-14 preseason win over the Titans.

The fourth-year wideout is facing a significant threat to his No. 3 receiver role from second-year man Chris Godwin, who impressed once again Saturday with a difficult touchdown catch in traffic. Humphries logged receptions from both starter Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston on Saturday and shared the field with Godwin on occasion, so it appears head coach Dirk Koetter is experimenting with different ways to utilize the talents of both as much as possible once the regular season commences. The Clemson product is also currently slated to serve as the No. 1 punt returner, which would give him additional fantasy utility in formats that factor in return yards. Humphries will look to build on Saturday's effort against the Lions in next Friday's "dress rehearsal" game.

Buccaneers' Ronald Jones II: Struggles for running room again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones rushed four times for two yards and failed to come up with his only target in the Buccaneers' 30-14 preseason win over the Titans on Saturday.

For the second time in as many preseason games, Jones couldn't get much going on the ground, although he had the misfortune of seeing a seven-yard run called back due to an offensive holding call against tight end O.J. Howard. Jones logged time in both the second and third quarters -- giving him plenty of reps against the Titans' second- and third-team defenders -- making his overall numbers particularly disappointing. Current starter Peyton Barber enjoyed significantly more success versus Tennessee's first-team defense, further widening the gulf between the two backs for the moment. Jones will look to put together his first solid game as a pro during next Friday's night's exhibition tilt against the Lions.

Buccaneers' M.J. Stewart: Suffers foot injury, questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart injured his foot and is questionable to return to Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

Stewart, the 2018 second-round pick, has been having a strong camp with a shot at a starting job. Prior to injuring his shoulder Saturday, he had a pair of tackles and forced two fumbles.

Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Suits up for Wednesday's joint practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (undisclosed) was seen in pads before Wednesday's joint practice versus the Titans, although his level of participation has not been confirmed, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Elliott had yet to practice following last Thursday's preseason opener, but it appears he participated in at least a limited fashion Wednesday. Buccaneers cornerbacks have taken some hits on the injury front recently, as in addition to Elliott's recent absences, Vernon Hargreaves (groin) and Carlton Davis (ankle) both remain sidelined.
