Week 1
Teams that win the Super Bowl must be strong in all 3 areas of the game. Tampa Bay’s 431 yards of offense helped overcome a decimated secondary that allowed 403 passing yards. Little noticed, between-the-lines special teams units played a mighty role in the Bucs’ Thursday night win over the Cowboys. P Bradley Pinion consistently gave the potent Dallas offense long fields with 3 kicks inside the 6-yard line. At the other end of the battle for field position, Jaydon Mickens set up the TB offense with 113 return yards.

It’s a good thing that the Bucs had 10 days between their Week 1 and Week 2 games. They needed that time to assess the impact of the injuries in the secondary, and for the injured players to recover. CB Sean Murphy-Bunting went on IR with a dislocated right elbow. S Jordan Whitehead is considered 90% recovered from a hamstring injury.

The Buccaneers have ruled LB Lavonte David (ankle) and S Antoine Winfield (concussion) out for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. That will allow S Mike Edwards to start in Winfield's place for the 2nd straight week and give LB Kevin Minter starting duty. EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) is questionable, though Wednesday's estimated injury report called him a "full" participant. JPP played through a questionable tag in Week 5 and got near his normal snap share in his return from a shoulder injury.

The Buccaneers have placed MLB Devin White and OLB Shaq Barrett on the COVID list. That obviously knocks them out for Sunday's game against the Falcons -- 2 big losses for a defense that allowed Atlanta 27 points and 332 passing yards 2 weeks ago. The team defense takes a step back as a fantasy option with the losses as well. White (with 9) and Barrett (8) rank 2nd and 3rd on the team in sacks for the year. It's not yet clear whether either player tested positive, which would threaten their availability for next week's playoff opener. We'll keep an eye on that. Kevin Minter looks like the White replacement, with Anthony Nelson the next guy up on the edge.

Update: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that White tested positive, so expect him to miss the playoff opener as well. Barrett is close contact, so he'll be back for that game as long as he continues to test negative.

Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians confirmed on Sirius XM NFL Radio Wednesday that he'll be "playing everybody" and "playing to win" in Sunday's game against the Falcons. He said they want to get to 11-5 and take the 5th seed rather than drop to the 6th with a loss. It's nice to hear such confirmation if you're planning to play Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Mike Evans or any other Buc in Week 17 fantasy.

Buccaneers CB Jamel Dean (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Colts. He left last week's game in the 1st quarter but made it back to full practices during the week. Dean carries upside as a CB in IDP lineups. Slot CB M.J. Stewart (knee) is also active after missing the past 3 games and 5 of the past 6. He has likely been replaced in the starting lineup by rookie Sean Murphy-Bunting moving inside -- with Dean starting outside opposite Carlton Davis. We'll seek confirmation on that in today's game.

The Buccaneers have ruled EDGE Carl Nassib (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Saints. That will mark his 2nd straight missed game. CB Carlton Davis (hip) is questionable. He returned for a limited practice Thursday and then a full Friday workout, which makes Davis seem likely to play. His status doesn't alter the outlook for any Saints WRs or Drew Brees.
