Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Hauls in pair of touchdowns in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brate secured five of 10 targets for 46 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-32 loss to the Rams.

Playing in his first game as the unquestioned top pass-catching tight end, Brate came through with a pair of short touchdown receptions in the high-scoring affair. The third year pro's 10 targets were a career high, while his touchdowns represented his first scores since Week 12 of last season versus the Colts. Brate developed solid rapport with Jameis Winston last season in the departed Austin Seferian-Jenkins' extended absence with a shoulder injury, and that experience looks to already be paying off, particularly now that the 25-year-old is set to man the position for the balance of the campaign.

Buccaneers' Adam Humphries: Career highs in receptions, yards in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Humphries secured nine of 12 targets for 100 yards in Sunday's 37-32 loss to the Rams.

The second-year receiver came in to Sunday's contest with nine catches for 101 yards over the first two games, meaning Humphries came within a yard of matching his season numbers in Week 3. He notched career highs in catches, yards and targets in the back-and-forth affair while acting as Jameis Winston's second favorite target on a day when he put up a whopping 58 pass attempts. Humphries has now seen his targets rise in each of the last two weeks and is clearly one of Winston's most trusted options in the intermediate passing game, as well as on third downs. With his increasingly expanding role in the Bucs' offense, he makes for a particularly appealing option in PPR formats.

Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Tallies 124 yards of total offense in Week 3 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims gained 55 yards on 13 carries and secured six of eight targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 37-32 loss to the Rams.

The third-year back put together a solid performance in Doug Martin's (hamstring) stead, but didn't get a full allotment of carries with the Bucs leaning heavily on the passing game in the second half. Due to his pass-catching proficiency, however, Sims was significantly involved in that aspect of the offense as well, securing a season high in receptions. The West Virginia product also notched only the second rushing touchdown of his career on a one-yard run in the second quarter, with his only other score on the ground having come back on Dec. 28, 2014 versus the Saints. Sims displayed a willingness to run between the tackles in addition to showing his trademark bounce to the outside, lending credence to the theory that he should be able to keep the Tampa running game afloat during Martin's absence. He draws a tough assignment for his second 2016 start, however, as the Bucs do battle with the Broncos in Week 4.

Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Throws for 405 yards, three TD in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Winston completed 36 of 58 passes for 405 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 37-32 loss to the Rams. He also gained 13 yards on four rushes and lost a fumble on a strip sack that was returned for a touchdown.

The 2015 first overall pick set career highs in completions, attempts and yards in the marathon contest, but ultimately came up short when it counted most. Following an extended weather delay due to lightning in the area, Winston helped lead the Bucs down the field from their own 44 to the Rams' 15 in the closing minutes before firing four consecutive incompletions and then inexplicably taking a sack on the final play instead of throwing into the end zone. Winston's two turnovers were also costly, with his interception setting up one of Todd Gurley's two touchdown runs and his fumble getting returned 77 yards by Ethan Westbrooks for a touchdown. On the positive side, he encouragingly made use of his full array of weapons, completing passes to eight different receivers. The former Seminole will try to bounce back against what should be one of his toughest challenges of the season when he and the Bucs take on the Broncos in Week 4.

Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Officially starting in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sims is the starting tailback for Sunday's Week 3 tilt versus the Rams, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The third-year pro will get first crack at lead-back duties in the absence of Doug Martin (hamstring). Given his considerable proficiency in the passing game, Sims should see a significant boost in overall touches against the Rams, with Jacquizz Rodgers spelling him on occasion.
