Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Signs with Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez-Roches signed a deal with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

The Buccaneers quickly filled their open roster slot after they released fellow defensive tackle Jerel Worthy on Monday. A former sixth-round pick, Nunez-Roches started 11 games for Kansas City last season and recorded 24 tackles and a half-sack. Nunez-Roches will look to provide depth, because injuries to Beau Allen (foot) and Mitch Unrein (knee) have hit the Buccaneers' defensive line.

Buccaneers' Carl Nassib: Records 1.5 sacks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nassib totaled two tackles (one solo) and 1.5 sacks in the Buccaneers' 48-10 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

The rotational defensive end played a total of 15 snaps in the blowout defeat, serving as the Bucs' most effective pass rusher in the process. Nassib figures to continue logging part-time snaps behind starters Jason Pierre-Paul and Vinny Curry, but with only 5.5 career sacks over his first two seasons, he performances like Sunday's may be few and far between.

Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Loses starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fitzpatrick will return to a backup role when the Buccaneers return from their bye for a Week 6 game in Atlanta, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Fitzpatrick owns an impressive stat line through four games, but he predictably trailed off the past two weeks with a three-pick game against the Steelers and a complete dud against the Bears. He did well to get the team to 2-2 against a tough early schedule, giving Jameis Winston a shot to keep Tampa Bay in the playoff picture. Winston will have an impressive group of pass catchers at his disposal, though O.J. Howard (knee) may not be ready for Week 6.

Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Returning to starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winston will start against the the Falcons in Week 6 when the Buccaneers return from their bye, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Ryan Fitzpatrick predictably faded after a scorching start to the year, tossing three picks in a Week 3 loss to Pittsburgh and producing just three points on six drives in Sunday's 48-10 loss to the Bears. Winston did throw a pair of interceptions after replacing Fitzpatrick on Sunday, but the 24-year-old at least had some success moving the ball. Winston will return to action against a soft Atlanta defense with the help of a deep group of receiving weapons, though he may not have O.J. Howard (knee) at his disposal.
