DeSean Jackson will play his first game as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer against the Chicago Bears in Week 2. What It Means: Jackson will provide Jameis Winston with a solid second option behind star wideout Mike Evans in the Bucs' offensive scheme. Jackson and the Bucs will take on a Bears' secondary that allowed 10.7 yards per attempt in Week 1 against Atlanta. Our models rank Jackson as the 36th-best wide receiver in Week 2. We have him down for 9.07 FanDuel points with 3.11 receptions, 54.98 yards and 0.33 touchdowns. Source: numberFire

What they get wrong about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

What they get wrong about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Bucs are much better than the analysts though. Much of the offseason commentary for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was focused on the offense: DeSean Jackson, O.J. Howard, Mike Evans, another year of maturation for Jameis Winston would result in an explosive offense that may only be held back by its running game, the unreliable defense and, of course, the offensive line. One game in, and that expectation has been blown out of the water. That terrible offensive line demolished the Chicago Bears front, which performed reasonably well the week before against the Atlanta Falcons. Donovan Smith...

VIDEO: Jameis Winston finds Mike Evans for a gorgeous touchdown

The Bucs lead 10-0 after the first quarter. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lead the Chicago Bears 10-0 after one quarter that was filled with bad Bears and good Bucs. Mostly, the Bears just gave the ball away. A bad throw by Mike Glennon, behind his target and straight into the waiting hands of Kwon Alexander, ended their first drive. And their second drive couldn’t even get started: Tarik Cohen tried to pick up the ball on a punt return in a crowd of Bucs coverage players, who promptly ripped the ball out. .@Jaboowins + @MikeEvans13_Wowwwwwwwwwwwww #Bucs #CHIvsTB...

Buccaneers' Jameis Winston embracing circumstances heading into season debut

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is embracing the fact that his team will have to play 16 straight regular season games this season. What It Means: In case you missed it, the Buccaneers' opener against the Miami Dolphins was postponed to Week 11 due to Hurricane Irma. That means that Tampa Bay will play 16 straight games without a bye week during that time, but Winston said that the "five days off" were "a blessing in disguise." After so much time away, though, the Buccaneers have to be anxious to kick off their season on Sunday. When the Buccaneers open up their...

Around The NFL: Things We Learned From Week 1

Football is officially back. It’s OK for someone to alerts the Giants’ offense of that now. While everyone was waiting all day for Sunday night, there was a lot that happened elsewhere around the league. So below are a few thoughts from some of the games in Week 1. Don’t Overreact to Week 1 We’re going to talk about takeaways from the week here, but the most important thing is to remember not to take too much away from the season’s opening week. Last year the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Atlanta Falcons 31-24 and Jameis Winston was getting talked about as a potential MVP...

Jameis Winston had the best under-pressure season in a decade in 2016

Jameis Winston had the best under-pressure season in a decade in 2016

The Bucs quarterback knows how to handle pass-rusher. Jameis Winston has had a really promising preseason, looking much more accurate than he has in the past two years. But accuracy is only one part of being a quarterback. Another part, one crucial in an NFL where great pass-rushers seem to be everywhere except on the Bucs’ roster, is how to handle pressure. Turns out that Winston’s really good at that. Read what Scott Kacsmar notes in his season preview. Winston really is Cam Newton’s doppelganger. They both throw the deepest passes in the league at over 10 air yards per attempt....

Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston voted team captain second straight season

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston will be in a leadership role once again as he looks to make the leap in his third NFL season. What It Means: According to the Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman, Winston is joined by wide receiver Mike Evans and four other key players in his captain role. But for Winston, it's different. After throwing 28 touchdowns and 18 picks a year ago, he'll be asked to cut down on the turnovers and keep up his productive play with the Buccaneers set to make a run this season. With his Week 1 matchup with the Miami Dolphins was postponed until Week...

Jameis Winston’s league MVP odds are soaring

Jameis Winston’s league MVP odds are soaring

Apparently Las Vegas liked what it saw on Hard Knocks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are pretty happy with their current quarterback, and so is Las Vegas. The odds for Jameis Winston winning league MVP this year jumped from 66/1 to 16/1—he’s now tied with Russell Wilson and Le’Veon Bell as the fifth-most likely player to win the award, per the latest numbers from Bovada. It’s hard to imagine Winston actually winning, though. He was pretty good last year, but most third-party rankings had him around number 15—which seems about right. He should be better this year, but he won’t jump...
