Jenna Laine - [Full Article]

Jenna Laine of ESPN.com uncovered some intriguing stats in regards to new Bucs starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Since 2010, when targeting tight ends, Fitzpatrick's touchdown to interception ratio is 4.40. When he targets any other position that ratio drops to 1.38. Laine also highlighted the fact that Fitzpatrick was 4-for-4 when targeting Cameron Brate against the Cardinals earlier this season.

Fantasy Impact:

Brate and the rest of the Bucs tight ends have a fantastic matchup versus the Jets this week. According to our aFPA metric, Bucs TEs have the third-best matchup of the week. We have Brate ranked as a top-10 TE in all formats, while O.J. Howard is a top-20 TE in standard leagues. If Fitzpatrick's career numbers are any indication, Brate could be in for a big game this week and Howard is on the TE streaming map.

Official: Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had his suspension appeal denied. He's out Sunday versus the Jets.

Related players: DeSean Jackson, Adam Humphries, Chris Godwin, Ryan Fitzpatrick

Fantasy Impact:

The good news is the Bucs play the Jets but the bad news is they will be without their starting QB in Jameis Winston, and now their top WR. Normally boom-or-bust Jackson could see a few more looks with Humphries and Godwin possibly getting more involved.

Bucs WR Mike Evans suspended for one game

Monday, November 6, 2017, 4:19pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was suspended one game for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules in Sunday'€™s game against the New Orleans Saints.

The suspension stems from a physical altercation Evans had with Saints rookie defensive back Marshon Lattimore in the third quarter of Sunday's game.

Related players: Adam Humphries, Chris Godwin, DeSean Jackson, Ryan Fitzpatrick

Fantasy Impact:

Lattimore got into a verbal confrontation with Buccaneers players on the sideline, including an injured Jameis Winston, who touched Lattimore. Lattimore turned around and shoved Winston before Evans ran in quickly from the field and shoved Lattimore down before falling on top of him as he threw punches. With Evans out, Jackson would take over as the WR1 with Humphries and Godwin pickings up the slack after that. Keep in mind QB Jameis Winston has been shut down, so Fitzpatrick will see his options limited without Evans on the field.

Bucs shutting down QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) next few weeks

Monday, November 6, 2017, 2:48pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Tampa Bay's season might have just taken a turn for the worst.

The Buccaneers are shutting down quarterback Jameis Winston (shoulder) for the next few weeks, head coach Dirk Koetter told reporters on Monday.

Winston left Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints with the injury, which he aggravated after suffering the initial injury nearly a month ago. Veteran backup Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced him in the loss.

Related players: Ryan Griffin

Fantasy Impact:

Winston sat out the second half of Week 9. He had more tests done to his shoulder, which according to reports, revealed more damage, but nothing structural. He's expected to miss two games. The team expects to activate Griffin from injured reserve soon as well. He would back up Fitzpatrick. Fitz is a veteran, and considering the way Winston had been playing there shouldn't be a huge downgrade to the rest of the offense at this point. The team looks like it will also be without Mike Evans in Week 10 because of a suspension.

Bucs QB Jameis Winston (shoulder) doesn't start second half

Sunday, November 5, 2017, 3:01pm

Field Yates on Twitter - [Full Article]

Ryan Fitzpatrick has replaced Jameis Winston at QB for the Bucs. Winston (shoulder) is questionable to return.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bucs trailed 16-3 at the half but the Saints have already put up 14 points in the third quarter so it's hard to believe Winston will be back in this game. He was just 7-for-13 for 67 yards.
