Scott Miller Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Falcons WR Drake London (groin) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. That leaves Atlanta with WRs Van Jefferson, KhaDarel Hodge, Mack Hollins, and Scotty Miller. Seriously. TEs Kyle Pitts and Jonnu Smith should draw more targets with London out. RBs Bijan Robinson and Cordarrelle Patterson could also play expanded roles in the passing game.

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.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady went 36-of-58 passing in Sunday's win over the Rams. He tallied 280 yards and 1 TD, but that came out to just 4.8 yards per attempt. And his lone TD came with just seconds remaining to give Tampa Bay the victory. TE Cade Otton caught that score and totaled 5-68-1 receiving on 6 targets. WR Mike Evans led the team with 11 targets but managed just 5 catches and 40 yards. WR Chris Godwin followed with 10 looks but tallied only 36 yards on his 7 receptions. WR Scotty Miller tied Godwin for the reception lead and collected 53 yards. His lone missed target was a late-game drop when an end-zone pass hit his facemask. Tampa Bay heads to Germany next Sunday morning to face a hot Seahawks defense.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady attempted 52 passes for the 2nd straight game in Sunday's win over the Falcons. He completed 35 (67.3%) for 351 yards (6.75 yards per attempt) and 1 TD. Brady targeted RB Leonard Fournette most, throwing his way on 21.2% of pass attempts (11 targets) -- including his only TD toss. WR Mike Evans ranked 2nd with 8 targets, catching 4 for 81 yards. TE Cade Otton (6-43) and WR Scotty Miller (4-35) tied with 7 targets. WR Chris Godwin (6-61) and WR Russell Gage (2-20) each drew 6 looks. The Bucs now rank 4th in the league in pass attempts and have run on just 33% of offensive snaps for the season to date.

Bucs WRs Russell Gage (hamstring), Chris Godwin (hamstring) and WR Julio Jones (knee) are active for tonight’s game vs. the Chiefs. They all figure to be operating at less than 100% – and it’s unclear exactly how snaps will be divvied behind WR Mike Evans. We’d try to avoid the 3 of them if possible, but Gage sits highest in the Week 4 WR Rankings. WR Breshad Perriman is inactive with his knee and hamstring injuries, while WR Scott Miller is a healthy scratch.

Bucs WRs Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday. They're both looking unlikely to play vs. the Packers this weekend. WR Scotty Miller (calf) was a full-go on Thursday; WR Breshad Perriman (knee) was limited.

Bucs WRs Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. Jones seemingly has a better chance than Godwin to play vs. the Packers this weekend. But, with WR Mike Evans suspended, Tampa could be down to WRs Russell Gage, Breshad Perriman and Scotty Miller atop the depth chart.

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.

Buccaneers WR Scotty Miller says he added 10-15 pounds of muscle this offseason, looking to rebound from an injury-derailed 2021. "I've always been undersized, so this year I really focused on gaining a couple pounds to show the coaches I can do a lot of different things in the offense," he told Pewter Report. "I just feel more explosive and really fast. The fastest I've ever been." Miller will have trouble reaching fantasy relevance, with Julio Jones joining an already loaded top 3 at WR: Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Russell Gage. But he flashed with Tom Brady in 2020 and count present enough versatility to earn a roster spot. At 25, Miller is heading into his 4th NFL season.

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.
