Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Bucs are an organization that seems to be trending the right way with Lovie Smith at the helm. But for this season, don't expect great things just yet. They'll have a hard time getting to .500. The defense still has plenty of holes and the quarterback situation is a concern. Until a franchise quarterback emerges for this team, the Bucs might struggle to make the playoffs.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
He probably shouldn't be a considered a breakout candidate because he already had a big season but last year was a big disappointment for running back Doug Martin. He battled injury and didn't do much even when he was playing. But the Bucs were a mess as a team and the offensive line didn't help matters for him. Martin gets a fresh start with a new coaching staff and what should be an improved offensive line. Martin is going to get a bunch of work in this offense, similar to what Matt Forte got when Lovie Smith was his coach. We look for Martin to get back to his big producing ways, making him a great buy-low candidate for fantasy teams.
FANTASY DUD
Quarterback Josh McCown had a career season last year, getting a chance to start because of injury and producing big numbers in the process. He revived his career and got a big contract this offseason with a chance to start in Tampa. McCown has some talent to work with in Tampa but his track record doesn't show he'll continue his recent success and while the talent is solid in Tampa, it isn't as good as it was in Chicago. He'll just have a hard time matching his success from past season. It wouldn't surprise to see Mike Glennon take over as starter at some point during the season.
