Bucs WR Russell Gage sustained a concussion in Monday night's Wild Card loss to the Cowboys but avoided any other damage and will be released from the hospital this afternoon, HC Todd Bowles said. "His neck is fine and right now he has all his extremities moving," Bowles added. This is Gage's 3rd documented concussion, but it sounds like he'll be ready for the start of the offseason program. Gage had a disappointing debut season with the Bucs, finishing with a 51-426-5 line across 13 games. He's set to count a little more than $12 million against the 2023 cap but carries a $9.3 million dead cap number, so he figures to be back in Tampa Bay for at least 1 more year.

Buccaneers WR Julio Jones (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Cardinals. He remained limited in practice all week after missing last Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Jones is tough to bet on for fantasy football lineups. His return challenges the role of WR Russell Gage, who led the Bucs in targets last week and scored twice.

Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin hauled in all 8 of his targets for 83 yards and a score in Sunday's loss vs. the Bengals. While Godwin and company did not emerge victorious, the Bucs' WR corps had three players reach double-digit PPR points. Mike Evans posted a respectable 83 yards, bringing in only 5 of his 10 receptions, and Russell Gage exploded with a pair of TDs to go along with 8 catches and 59 yards. While it's difficult to tell week-to-week if Gage can be trusted, managers advancing in the fantasy playoffs can feel confident in both Godwin and Evans against the Cardinals in Week 16 despite the difficult matchup. Both are WR1 options vs. the Cardinals.

Bucs WR Julio Jones (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bengals. That figures to leave Russell Gage as Tampa’s #3 WR, but he’d be a desperation fantasy play.

Bucs WR Julio Jones (knee) is not expected to play vs. the Bengals later today, although a final decision might not come until pregame warmups, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones obviously shouldn't be in fantasy lineups. Jones' absence figures to leave Russell Gage as Tampa’s #3 WR, but he’d be a desperation fantasy play.

7:24pm EST 12/5/22

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is active for tonight's game vs. the Saints. It's his 1st action since Week 7. Gage averaged an underwhelming 5.7 targets, 4.1 catches and 33 yards over the first 7 games of the season. We're expecting him to operate as Tampa's #4 WR tonight behind Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Saints. He was a full-go in Saturday's practice, so he seemingly has a good chance to return for this one. Gage has been out since Week 7 and shouldn't be in your fantasy plans. But his return adds downside to WR Julio Jones' fantasy profile.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) was limited in Thursday's practice. We'll see if he can make it back for Monday night's game vs. the Saints, which would be his first action since Week 7. Gage won't be a bankable fantasy play if he does suit up against New Orleans.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He remained sidelined all week and has no timetable for return. Julio Jones will continue to operate as Tampa’s #3 WR behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not make the trip to Germany and is out for Sunday morning's game vs. the Seahawks. Scotty Miller finished 3rd among Bucs WRs with a 52% route rate last week; Julio Jones was 4th at 35%. Chris Godwin and Mike Evans remain the only bankable fantasy plays in this WR corps.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. Don't count on him returning for Sunday morning's game vs. the Seahawks. Julio Jones and Scotty Miller wound up splitting #3 WR duties for Tampa last week.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Rams. That should again mean #3 WR duties for Julio Jones, who posted a 2-21-1 line on 4 targets last week.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. It looks like he'll remain out for this weekend's game vs. the Rams. With Gage out last week, Julio Jones operated as Tampa's #3 WR, posting a 57% route rate and 2-21-1 line on 4 targets.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens. He's been battling hamstring issues since the summer. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 9, but Gage is not a must-stash on fantasy rosters.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not practice on Tuesday. He hurt a hamstring in Sunday's loss to the Panthers and seems unlikely to play vs. the Ravens on Thursday night. That potentially opens up the #3 WR job for WR Julio Jones (knee), who put in a limited practice on Tuesday. We'll get Tampa's final injury report on Wednesday afternoon.

Bucs WR Russell Gage injured his hamstring late in Sunday's shocking loss to the Panthers. Gage dealt with hamstring trouble for most of August and September, although it's unclear if this is the same hamstring. We'll update Gage's status when we learn more.
