Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

With Chris Godwin and Julio Jones inactive Sunday, the Buccaneers turned to WRs Scotty Miller (8), Russell Gage (6) and Breshad Perriman (5) as the top 3 in targets. Gage caught 5 balls for 28 yards, increasing his usage vs. Week 1. Miller and Perriman caught just 3 balls apiece, with Perriman's 28-yard TD the highlight among them. Mike Evans got ejected for fighting after a 3-61 receiving line on 4 targets, and the league has suspended him for 1 game. Barring a successful appeal, Tampa Bay might need to lean on the same pack in Week 3 against Green Bay. We'll see about Julio Jones' health as well.

Bucs WR Mike Evans has been suspended 1 game for his role in Sunday's fight with the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Evans is considered a repeat offender after getting ejected from a game and suspended for fighting back in 2017. We'll see if Evans appeals this ruling, but fantasy owners need to plan on being without him in Week 3 for now. We'll see if WRs Julio Jones (knee) and/or Chris Godwin (hamstring) can make it back for Sunday's game vs. the Packers. If not, the Bucs will be down to WRs Russell Gage, Breshad Perriman and Scotty Miller.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Saints. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out on Wednesday. Although Gage still isn’t at 100%, he has upside today with WRs Chris Godwin and Julio Jones out.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Saints today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He got in just 2 limited practices this week. But, based on this morning's reports, it sounds like he's at least healthier than WR Julio Jones heading into this one. Consider Gage a risk/reward WR3 for Week 2.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Saints. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out on Wednesday. We're expecting Gage to play on Sunday, but don't expect him to be at 100%. He was targeted twice and played just 42% of Tampa's offensive snaps in the opener.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That seemingly puts him on track to play vs. the Saints this weekend, but it's tough to believe that Gage is at 100%.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. That's a downgrade from his 3 limited practices last week. Gage's availability for this weekend's game vs. the Saints is now uncertain. WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday and won't play on Sunday.

Tom Brady went just 18 of 27 passing for 212 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in Sunday night's win over the Cowboys. WR Mike Evans led the group in playing time, targets, catches and yards and caught the lone TD. He supplied a solid 5-71-1 receiving line on 5 looks. WR Julio Jones trailed Evans by just 1 route and finished 2nd with 5 targets. WR Russell Gage checked in 3rd among WRs in usage, with Breshad Perriman close by in a game that saw Chris Godwin injure a hamstring. TE Cameron Brate also played a big role, though he drew just 3 targets. We'd bet on more from this passing offense going forward, even if Godwin misses further time. We'd also bet on Gage's role expanding as he moves further away from his hamstring ailment.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin could miss "a few weeks" with the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday night's win over the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "There's optimism it's not a major injury," Pelissero adds. We'll let you know if we get a more concrete timetable for Godwin's return. But considering he was just working back from the torn ACL, don't plan on using Godwin in fantasy lineups until October at the earliest. His absence is a boost for WRs Mike Evans, Julio Jones and Russell Gage.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is active for tonight's opener vs. the Cowboys. He remained limited in practice all week after injuring his hamstring on August 10, so Gage comes with elevated risk in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's opener vs. the Cowboys. He remained limited in practice all week after injuring his hamstring on August 10. We'll look for an update on Gage's status on Sunday morning but won't get the Bucs' inactives until 7 pm ET. Gage will carry elevated risk if he does end up playing vs. Dallas.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We'll see what he's able to do tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for Sunday night's opener vs. the Cowboys.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. HC Todd Bowles said a few days ago that Gage is "on track" to play vs. the Cowboys on Sunday night, but it'd be nice to see him get in a full practice after missing about 3 weeks in August with a hamstring injury.

Bucs WR Russell Gage (hamstring) is "on track" to play vs. the Cowboys next weekend, HC Todd Bowles said. Gage missed about 3 weeks with a hamstring injury but got back on the practice field on Thursday. With WR Chris Godwin still working his way back from last year's torn ACL, Gage figures to open the season as 1 of Tampa's top 3 WRs, along with Mike Evans and Julio Jones.

Bucs WRs Mike Evans and Russell Gage will be held out of practice this week with their hamstring injuries, HC Todd Bowles said Tuesday. We haven't seen any concern about either guy's status for the start of the season, but we'll see when they're able to get back on the field.

Bucs WR Russell Gage suffered an apparent leg injury in practice on Wednesday. Gage limped off with team trainers, per beat writer Rick Stroud. We’ll pass along an update when we learn more.

Buccaneers HC Todd Bowles on Friday highlighted WR Russell Gage as a consistently strong performer so far in training camp. "Gage has really been the one to stand out," he said, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic. The report also mentions WRs Tyler Johnson and Jaelon Darden as early leaders in competition for what might be the final 2 spots on the depth chart. Gage is locked into the top 4 with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones. We'll continue watching camp reports and preseason signals for specific roles within 1 of the league's top pass offenses.
