Bucs WR Antonio Brown (COVID) is officially inactive for today’s game vs. the Rams. We’re expecting Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson to split #3 WR duties. Neither guy can be trusted in fantasy lineups. Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski should all pick up extra targets with Brown out.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (COVID) didn't travel with the team to Los Angeles and is out for Sunday's game against the Rams, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. When Brown missed last year's NFC Championship, Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson split #3 WR duties. Miller ran a route on 53% of pass plays and saw 3 targets; Johnson registered a 32% route rate and 2 targets. Unless we get more clarity on the situation, neither guy can be trusted in fantasy lineups. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski should pick up extra volume with Brown out.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown remains on the COVID list as of Friday night and is expected to miss Sunday's game vs. the Rams, according to insider Greg Auman. When Brown missed last year's NFC Championship, WRs Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson basically split #3 WR duties. Neither guy can be trusted in fantasy lineups. Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski could all pick up extra targets with Brown out.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown did, indeed, test positive for COVID, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Brown is vaccinated, so he's eligible to return after 2 negative tests 24 hours apart. That gives Brown a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Rams. But Schefter tweets that, "it will be tough for Brown to play." We've lowered Brown in the Week 3 Rankings for now, as owners should be lining up other options for this week. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown has been placed on the COVID list, according to insider Rick Stroud. It's unclear if he tested positive for the virus or is just a close contact. Either way, Brown's Week 3 status is now up in the air. Stay tuned for updates.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Brown tested positive. Schefter adds: "A player that tests positive that is vaccinated can return after two negative tests 24 hours apart, but it will be tough for Brown to play Sunday vs. Rams."

The Bucs and WR Antonio Brown have agreed to a 1-year contract with $3.1 million guaranteed and upside to $6.25 million, according to NFL Network. This deal took a bit longer than expected to get done, but Brown was always expected back in Tampa. He posted a 45-483-4 line in 8 games with the Bucs last season, ranking 21st among WRs in PPR points over that span. Volume is still a bit of a concern here, though, with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski also back for 2021.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) is active for the Super Bowl. He got in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he should be close to 100%.

Bucs TE Cameron Brate (back) is questionable for the Super Bowl. After being added to the injury report on Thursday, he didn't practice on Friday. We'll get Brate's game status around 5 pm ET on Sunday. His absence would mean a boost in projections for both TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Antonio Brown.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so it'd be a surprise if he doesn't play. Brown has averaged 7.2 targets, 5.2 catches and 59 yards in 9 healthy games with the Bucs. But he's played fewer than 50% of the snaps in 3 of the last 5 as Tampa has deployed more 2-TE sets. That could change on Sunday if TE Cameron Brate (back) is unable to play.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) was upgraded to a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's set to play in the Super Bowl. Brown's playing time was on the decline even before his injury as Tampa moved to more 2-TE sets. We're expecting a similar game plan on Sunday.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It's an upgrade after he sat out all week leading up to the NFC Championship. Brown is seemingly on track to return for Sunday's Super Bowl.

The Buccaneers have ruled WR Antonio Brown out for Sunday's NFC Championship game, HC Bruce Arians announced Friday. That leaves room for WRs Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller to gain snaps against the Packers. Johnson led Miller in last Sunday's win over the Saints -- but by a mere 7 snaps (15-8). Brown's absence could also leave a few more snaps for TE Cameron Brate. Tampa's #2 TE has seen 2 of his 4 largest target totals for the year over the past 2 weeks. Brate, Johnson and Miller all stand as cheap DFS flyers for the weekend. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin also get a slight bump in target floor with the clear #3 WR out.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians labeled WR Antonio Brown (knee) a game-time decision for Sunday's NFC Championship vs. the Packers. Brown missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We'll see if he's able to get out there tomorrow, but he'll be at less than 100% if he suits up this weekend. If Brown can't go, WRs Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson would pick up extra snaps.
