Bucs WR Cyril Grayson (hamstring) is out for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Eagles. It figures to be Breshad Perriman and Tyler Johnson as the #2 and #3 WRs behind #1 Mike Evans.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said after Sunday's win over the Jets that WR Antonio Brown's time with the Bucs is over. That's not a surprise after Brown removed his jersey and left the field in the middle of the 3rd quarter. But it's still a massive loss for a Bucs offense that is also without WR Chris Godwin for the rest of the season. That leaves Breshad Perriman, Cyril Grayson and Tyler Johnson as the top WRs behind Mike Evans. Evans and TE Rob Gronkowski should be the focal points of the passing game in Week 18 and the playoffs.

Bucs WR Breshad Perriman has landed on the COVID list. He'll miss Sunday night's game vs. the Saints. Perriman caught the game-winning TD vs. the Bills last week, but he saw just 2 targets on a 31% snap rate. Perriman's absence should make Tyler Johnson Tampa's clear #3 WR on Sunday night.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. Washington. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. "We'll see how he is tomorrow," HC Bruce Arians said Friday. "He looked OK today but we'll see how he is tomorrow. ... [He did] just enough to look OK. We'll see how he is." Arians labeled Godwin a game-time decision. The good news is that we’ll get his game status around 11:30 am ET. Godwin will obviously carry elevated risk if he ends up active. If not, WR Tyler Johnson will be a viable Week 10 spot starter.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. HC Bruce Arians suggested earlier this week that Brown isn't a lock to be ready after the Week 9 bye. His absence is good news for WRs Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. Tyler Johnson will operate as the #3 WR but would be a fantasy flier.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bears. We still don't have any details on Brown's injury, but the fact that he didn't practice at all this week makes him seem iffy for Week 8. It's worth noting that Tampa Bay has a Week 9 bye. Brown's absence on Sunday should elevate WR Tyler Johnson to the #3 spot on the depth chart. He's still just a DFS tournament flier. WRs Mike Evans and Chris Godwin should soak up extra targets with Brown out.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He appears to be in real danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Bears. Brown's absence would move WR Tyler Johnson up into the #3 spot on the depth chart -- and mean more targets for WRs Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

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.

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.
