Fantasy Football Preview: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The NFC South is a tricky division. It is the division of the quarterbacks with elites like Drew Brees and Matt Ryan and up and comers such as Cam Newton. The only team in this division that’s had some uneasiness at the quarterback position has been the Buccaneers who now believe Josh McCown can take them to the next level.

Buccaneers WR Mike Evans: 'I'm too heavy right now'

The Buccaneers are expecting a big impact from rookie wide receiver Mike Evans, who should form a rebound receiver tandem with Vincent Jackson. But right now getting Evans in shape is probably a bigger concern. The former Texas A&M standout tweaked his hamstring in OTAs and admitted he's "not in tip-top shape" at the moment.

Buccaneers Have High Hopes for Mike Evans

I could make an argument for Mike Evans being the biggest part of the phenomenon that was Johnny Manziel's career at Texas A&M. Things get much easier in the pocket if you have a giant, muscled up receiver to just heave the football to when you get in trouble. Evans was the go to guy for Johnny Football, especially when things were breaking down and the quarterback was...
