Report: Bucs fielding calls about trading WR Vincent Jackson
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers are receiving a "ton of calls" about trades regarding veteran wide receiver Vincent Jackson, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport. The Bucs like Jackson as a player, but the team is willing to consider everything.

Jackson has totaled 25 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns through six games. The Bucs are on a bye Week 7.

Bye week comes at opportune time for Bucs DL Michael Johnson
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers defensive end Michael Johnson has been hobbled by an ankle injury since getting hurt in the season opener. He has missed one game and has been limited in others.

Though, the Bucs seem pretty thankful they are on a bye Week 7 since it gives Johnson an opportunity to rest.

"For us, it’s a factor," defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said, per the team's official website. "He’s been playing injured. This week is going to help him tremendously. We’re not going to tax him much this week at least, and we’ll take it slow next week. So we need a healthier Michael Johnson and we should get that by having these two weeks.

"From that second play of that Carolina game – that was one of the plays that we looked at yesterday as we were going through our self-scout – to see him on the ground grimacing, from that point on, it’s just been an uphill battle to try to get him back healthy. He’s made great progress with the time that we’ve had him and the time he’s missed. But he’s not the player that we had coming out of training camp, because of that injury. But the time off this week and next week should help him. He’ll be closer to what we all expect to see when we line up against our next opponent."

Buccaneers receiving corps becoming diverse
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

It may have been an aberration resulting from quarterback Matt Glennon throwing for a season-high 314 yards with his team in catchup mode from the outset, but the Buccaneers managed to sustain three wide receivers Week 6 against Baltimore. Vincent Jackson, the star of the group, led the team with 13 targets but was characteristically inefficient with them, catching four passes for 66 yards, and rookie Mike Evans returned from injury to catch four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown.

But the big surprise was Louis Murphy. Expected to shrink into a peripheral role with Evans back in the lineup, he led the way with seven catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. His nine targets were the second-most on the team.

The 1-5 Buccaneers figure to be playing from behind a lot, so Murphy, who clicked with Glennon immediately when he joined the team in Week 4, might just be able to stay relevant in Fantasy. Jamey Eisenberg doesn't rank him especially high in his Playing the Waiver Wire column this week, but at least he's ranked.

Of course, the presence of Murphy could diminish the value of Jackson and Evans to Fantasy owners. Jackson remains a must-start for now, but Evans is strictly a matchups type until we get some clarity here.
