Shark Bites

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.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes called WR Justin Watson a "pleasant surprise" after throwing to him earlier this offseason. “That dude can roll," Mahomes said. "He came down to Texas. I threw with him the first day, and I called (general manager Brett) Veach and I was like, ‘Wait, how fast is this guy?’ He was running so fast that I was late on my throws. He’s had two great days.” Watson, a former 5th-round pick of the Bucs, has only 23 catches through 4 pro seasons. But he has a nice combination of size and athleticism and finds opportunity in a reshuffling Chiefs WR corps. We'll keep an eye on him this summer.

The Buccaneers have ruled WR Justin Watson (chest) out for Thursday night's game against the Bears. His absence -- along with Chris Godwin's -- leaves playing time available for WRs Tyler Johnson and Jaydon Mickens. Neither looks like a fantasy option outside of DFS showdowns.

The Bucs selected Penn WR Justin Watson in the 5th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. As you’d expect, Watson dominated at Penn, posting 3 straight 1,000-yard seasons with 33 career TDs. But he proved more than just a product of weak competition by testing as a 90th percentile athlete at 6’2 and 215 pounds. Watson is an intriguing developmental project but won’t make a short-term impact behind Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and Chris Godwin.
