There are a couple teams that have multiple star fantasy players. Teams like the Rams, Saints, and Chiefs. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are an underrated fantasy friendly team. They are positioned very well in 2019 to help fantasy owners out, and here are the best players available on the Bucs.
The Obvious: Mike Evans
Mike Evans gets his own tier on this team because he has been a star since entering the league. Usually sitting around the 2/3 round, his ADP has risen to the middle of the second round this summer. Evans had a career year in 2018, finishing with 86 receptions, 1524 yards, and 8 touchdowns. With a full year in an Arians offense, we could see Evans break the 100 catch mark and add to his touchdown total.
The Value Picks: Chris Godwin, Jameis Winston, O.J. Howard
Both of these players have an ADP that they should easily outperform. I wrote an article about how they hype on Godwin has been a little much, but it has cooled down since the draft. If Godwin is available after the 6th round, that is the time to pounce. Finally a full time starter, Godwin can expect a decent target share. Considering he put up 59 receptions, 842 yards, and 7 touchdowns on just a 64 percent snap count, a full time role would be welcomed with open arms. Look for Godwin to enter the WR2 conversation.
Jameis on the other hand can be drafted in the double digit rounds as of right now. For those who like to wait on a quarterback, he is the perfect target. Winston has never been shy about throwing the football. He puts up some great stats, especially in the yardage and touchdown department. The knock on his game is the turnovers. Well, if anyone is going to iron that out, its Bruce Arians. With an elite skill group around him, I believe this is the year we see Winston vault into the top 7 in quarterback rankings.
The tight end position is so top heavy, that finding a tight end with the talent of Howard in the middle rounds is extremely valuable. Howard has as much talent as the guys like Zach Ertz, Travis Kelce, and George Kittle. The things that have held him back are mind boggling time shares and injuries. Well now he is fully healthy and in a full time role. I’ll take O.J. in the middle rounds every day of the week over guys like Kelce and Ertz in the second round.
The Sleeper: Ronald Jones
A popular sleeper pick this summer, ROJO has been the talk of camp so far. After an injury riddled rookie year, the second round prospect is looking to take the starting role to himself. The great thing is, all the pressure is gone. The Bucs didn’t add any competition and Arians is notorious for getting the most out of his running backs. Spending a double digit pick on ROJO could net you a top 20 running back, and that is what sleeper picks are all about.
