Tampa Bay Buccaneers Roster
Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shaquil Barrett said that he's hoping to remain with the team moving forward. "I dont know where its going to end up at but Im confident that Im going to be where I should be, which I think is Tampa," Barrett said. Things couldn't have gone any better for Barrett in his first year with the Bucs in 2019, as he led the NFL with 19.5 sacks after never having more than 5.5 sacks in a single season in his four years with the Broncos. He also added 58 total tackles (45 solo), six forced fumbles and one interception during his career year. Barrett is set to become a free agent in March, but it's unlikely that Tampa lets him get away.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston (thumb) posted a video on his Instagram that showed him with a cast on his injured right thumb. Winston suffered a fracture in his throwing thumb late in the season but didn't miss any time. The 26-year-old is expected to be retained, possibly on the franchise tag, heading into the 2020 season at the end of his contract. He had a career-high 5,109 passing yards and 33 touchdowns, but he also threw a league-high 30 interceptions. Winston has the best one-two receiver punch in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, so he should continue to be a strong QB1 choice if he remains in Tampa. Eliminating all the turnovers would be really helpful to his fantasy owners.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber rushed just six times for 10 yards in the Bucs Week 17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He also added two catches for 25 yards on the day. Getting crowned the Bucs starting running back coming out of training camp was the highlight of Barber's season, as it was all downhill from there. Barber was merely a thorn in the side of Ronald Jones II all season long, and seeing as Barber is a free agent this offseason, it's likely that the Bucs move on.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II rushed 11 times for 106 yards in the Bucs Week 17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He also added two catches for 10 yards and lost a fumble on the day. Jones was unable to separate himself from fellow backfield mate Peyton Barber this season, leading to inconsistent performances, but was by far the best playmaker in the Bucs backfield. If Jones can work on getting better at pass protection this offseason, he could very well be in store for a third-year breakout.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Breshad Perriman hauled in five catches for 134 yards and one touchdown in the Bucs Week 17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Perriman absolutely exploded over the last four weeks of the season, catching 20 balls for 419 yards and 5 touchdowns over that time. This comes after catching one touchdown and going over the 44-yard mark just one time over his last 13 games. Slated to hit the free-agent market this offseason, Perriman has set himself up very well in terms of a future potential payday with these latest performances. He will be a player that needs to be monitored this offseason.
