Bucs WR Scotty Miller will miss “a significant amount of time" with a toe injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Rams, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. If you had Miller stashed in a redraft league, you can drop him. WR Antonio Brown (COVID) should be back for Week 4. But if he's not, Tyler Johnson would have #3 WR duties to himself.

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 Justin Watson is expected to miss 4 months after undergoing knee surgery, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Watson was placed on the active PUP list on Saturday and figures to slide to the reserve PUP list before the season starts, costing him at least the first 6 games. He was set to battle for the #4 WR job in Tampa. It'll now be Scotty Miller, Tyler Johnson and rookie Jaelon Darden fighting for that spot.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that there's "optimism" Bucs WR Mike Evans (ankle) will play against the Bears tonight, but that a final decision won't be made until after pregame warmups. Evans played through this ankle injury last week, so we're expecting him to be out there tonight. He obviously won't be at 100% but is virtually impossible to bench in fantasy. Evans has posted 7-104-1 and 7-122-1 lines in 2 games without WR Chris Godwin this season. Rapoport also confirms that WR Scotty Miller (hip, groin) will play tonight.

Bucs WR Scotty Miller (hip, groin) is active for today’s game against the Chargers. He and Justin Watson will join Mike Evans in 3-WR sets with Chris Godwin out with his hamstring injury. Miller and Watson are both WR4 fliers.

Bucs WR Scotty Miller (hip, groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Chargers. He missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices but was a full-go on Friday, so we're expecting him to play. Miller should get a target boost with WR Chris Godwin out, putting him on the WR4/Flex radar. WR Justin Watson (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll take over Godwin's role in the slot.

Bucs WR Scotty Miller (hip, groin) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's now looking iffy for this weekend's game against the Chargers. With WR Chris Godwin out with his hamstring injury, Tampa might be down to WRs Mike Evans and Justin Watson.

Bucs WR Scotty Miller (hip, groin) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice. WR Justin Watson (shoulder), meanwhile, was a full participant after missing Week 3. Watson is in line to step into WR Chris Godwin's slot role against the Chargers this weekend. We'll see if Miller is able to suit up.

Buccaneers WR Scotty Miller looks like the leader for the #3 job behind Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. And it sounds like his new QB is a big fan. “He’s another great, consistent, dependable, trustworthy player,” Tom Brady told the Tampa Bay Times on Friday. “Whatever we talk about, he takes it to the next practice and his play is showing everybody that he’s earned a big role. You can trust where he’s going to be, he makes the plays when they come his way. He’s really been fun to work with and fun to see grow from the minute I got here.” The loaded offense will make it tough for Miller to find regular fantasy relevance. But he looks good as a late option in best-ball and deep-league drafts. Make sure you also keep Miller in mind in case of an injury to Godwin or Evans.

The Bucs selected Minnesota WR Tyler Johnson in the 5th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Johnson was a monster college producer. He easily led a bad Gophers passing offense in catches (35), yards (677) and TDs (7) as a sophomore in 2017. Then he busted out for a big 78-1,169-12 line the following year, ranking top 21 nationally in all 3 categories. Johnson set new career highs across the board in 2019 with 86 catches, 1,318 yards and 13 TDs. He accounted for 41% of Minnesota’s receptions, 40% of the receiving yards and 42% of the TDs. No WR garnered a higher receiving grade from Pro Football Focus in 2019. Johnson isn’t a high-end athlete but does enough to create separation on short and intermediate routes. He’s excellent in contested situations. And he has experience playing both outside and in the slot. Johnson should have a good shot to win the #3 WR job in Tampa Bay this season, with Scott Miller and Justin Watson as his competition. But even then, he’d struggle for targets behind Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski.

The Bucs have placed WRs Mike Evans and Scott Miller on IR with their hamstring injuries. WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) remains on the active roster but is a long shot to play against the Texans on Saturday.

Bucs WRs Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Scott Miller all missed practice on Tuesday with their hamstring injuries. None of them are likely to play against the Texans on Saturday afternoon. That'll leave Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson as Tampa's top 2 WRs. TE O.J. Howard should also fend for the team lead in targets.

Bucs WR Scott Miller aggravated his hamstring injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Lions and is doubtful to return. The rookie hauled in all 3 of his targets for 49 yards and a score before exiting. Tampa is down to WRs Chris Godwin, Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. WR Scott Miller (hamstring) practiced all week and is set to return. It’s unclear how WR snaps will be split between Miller, Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson behind #1 Chris Godwin. Perriman is the best fantasy bet of the trio, but consider him just a WR4 flier.

Bucs WR Scott Miller (hamstring) was a full-go in Thursday's practice. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Lions. The rookie had basically worked himself into an even timeshare with Breshad Perriman for #3 WR duties before going down in Week 12. It's unclear what kind of role Miller will return to after Mike Evans hurt his hamstring and Justin Watson posted a 5-59-1 line last week. Miller and Watson are DFS-only options for Week 15. Perriman remains the best bet to play the 2nd most snaps among Bucs WRs (behind Chris Godwin).

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) will miss the final 3 weeks of the season. He can be dropped from redraft rosters. Tampa is down to WRs Breshad Perriman, Justin Watson and Scott Miller (hamstring) behind Chris Godwin. We could see TE O.J. Howard's volume get a boost with Evans out.
