Bucs hopeful Russell Gage and Gio Bernard will play Week 1

The Buccaneers are hopeful and feeling good about the Week 1 availability for WR Russell Gage (hamstring) and RB Giovani Bernard (ankle).

Fantasy Impact: 

"Bowles said Bernard has been 'moving around well' — with the hope that the team will have him available for the regular-season opener," wrote Crane. Bernard is recovering from an ankle injury suffered in the first preseason game against the Dolphins. He is currently RB101 in Underdog drafts.

As for Gage, he was able to practice a couple of days this week and said he feels good. His hamstring injury came during joint practices with the Dolphins. Gage is currently being drafted on Underdog as WR60, as he, presumably, has Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones all ahead of him.
