Buccaneers' Cecil Shorts: Shut out of stat sheet despite Week 7 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shorts received the start in Sunday's 34-17 victory over the 49ers but received zero targets on 31 snaps, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The veteran receiver's complete absence from the box score was the biggest surprise to come out of Sunday's victory, given Shorts' experience and solid resume as both an inside and outside receiver. It was surprisingly special teams captain Russell Shepard, he of the three career receptions heading into the Week 7 contest, that filled the void created by Vincent Jackson's (knee) absence, converting six targets into five catches for 77 yards and his first career touchdown. However, considering Shorts' previous body of work, it's safe to consider Sunday's result an outlier, one that the veteran wideout is likely to start putting behind him in a Week 8 matchup against a beatable Raiders secondary.

Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Hauls in all three targets in Week 7 win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brate secured all three of his targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 34-17 victory over the 49ers.

Brate was modestly involved despite the Bucs playing without Vincent Jackson (knee), as Russell Shepard stepped up to deliver five receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown as the defacto No. 2 receiver. The third-year pro's production is likely to continue fluctuating throughout the season and has been affected the last two games due to the Bucs finding considerable success on the ground with Jacquizz Rodgers. As such, he remains a somewhat risky proposition for fantasy purposes in any format for the time being.

Buccaneers' Adam Humphries: Contributes 55 all-purpose yards in Week 7 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries was all over the box score in Sunday's 34-17 win over the 49ers, securing two of three targets for 17 yards, rushing once for six yards, gaining 17 yards on one kickoff return and totaling 15 yards on a pair of punt returns. He also had two fumbles but lost neither.

Humphries' role in the offense was unchanged despite Vincent Jackson's (knee) absence, as expected. He also remains in a time share with rookie Ryan Smith on kickoff returns, but continues to hold the primary punt returner role. Of particular concern from a fantasy perspective is the dwindling target share that Humphries has endured over the last three games, during which he's only received a combined nine looks from Jameis Winston, after topping out at 12 in Week 3 versus the Rams. Given the recent pattern of reduced involvement, Humphries remains a low-end option in both season-long and DFS formats.

Buccaneers' Antone Smith: Limited on ground but contributes through air in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith received only one carry in Sunday's 34-17 victory over the NIners, gaining six yards. However, he also secured two of three targets for 41 yards.

The veteran back turned in a solid performance considering his limited opportunities and the fact that he'd just joined the team last Monday. However, Smith's familiarity with head coach Dirk Koetter's offensive system stemming from their three seasons together (2012-14) in Atlanta certainly served to help the acclimation process, allowing the seventh-year pro to contribute in the passing game. Smith's chances for touches in the running game figure to be considerably capped given the performances of Jacquizz Rodgers and Peyton Barber, but he could garner some modest production as a passing-down back. The FSU product came in to Sunday's contest having secured 15 of 18 career targets for 232 yards and three touchdowns, with all of the scores having come in 2014 as a Falcon.

Buccaneers' Peyton Barber: Scores on a 44-yard touchdown at San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barber had 12 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-17 win at San Francisco. He was not targeted in the passing game.

Before you get excited, keep in mind that most of his production came on a 44-yard touchdown late in the game, and Jacquizz Rodgers finished with 26 carries for 154 yards. With that said, Barber seems to be second in line behind Rodgers, as Antone Smith had just one carry for six yards. As long as Doug Martin (hamstring) is out of the lineup, expect Barber to be involved as a change of pace runner. Next up for Barber will be the Raiders.
