Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers



Overall Outlook
The Buccaneers overhauled the offensive line, brought in veteran quarterback Josh McCown and added some much-needed playmakers on offense in Mike Evans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins and defense in Alterraun Verner and Michael Johnson. The team should also benefit for the return of Doug Martin to the lineup.  Look for Tampa Bay to be improved, but some growing pains from a new QB, WR and TE will keep the team from making a playoff run.


Offseason Moves
Key additions: CB Alterraun Verner, DE Michael Johnson, QB Josh McCown, T Anthony Collins, C Evan Dietrich-Smith, CB Mike Jenkins, TE Brandon Myers, G/T Oniel Cousins, DT Clinton McDonald, SS Major Wright, WR Lavelle Hawkins
Key losses: CB Darrelle Revis, WR Mike Williams, T Donald Penn, G Davin Joseph, C Jeremy Zuttah, C Ted Larsen, FB Erik Lorig, WR Tiquan Underwood

Offensive Outlook
The Buccaneers offense is chock full of dynasty talent. Guys like Doug Martin, Mike Evans, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins are going to produce excellent numbers for a long time. Unfortunately, with such a young group, the offense will be inconsistent all year, making most of the skill position players boom or bust candidates. Vincent Jackson will continue to produce solid numbers weekly.

Projections - 2014
QB1 - Josh McCown - Passing - 3300 yds / 22 tds 
RB1 - Doug Martin - Rushing - 1100 yds / 6 tds  Receiving - 40 recs / 325 yds / 2 tds
RB2 - Bobby Rainey - Rushing - 300 yds / 2 tds  Receiving - 20 recs / 175 yds / 0 tds
WR1 - Vincent Jackson - Receiving - 80 recs / 1200 yds / 8 tds
WR2 - Mike Evans - Receiving - 50 recs / 700 yds / 6 tds
WR3 - Chirs Owusu - Receiving - 20 recs / 200 yds / 2 tds
TE1 - Austin Seferian-Jenkins - Receiving - 40 recs / 400 yds / 3 tds

Defensive Outlook
The addition of Lovie Smith as head coach creates an intriguing defense in Tampa Bay. The club will use a scheme similar to the Bears of the past decade, which should create turnovers and big plays. We see the TB defense as a sleeper DST in redraft leagues and see David, Barron, Foster, Johnson and Clayborn as solid options in IDP formats.

Projections - 2014
DE1 - Adrian Clayborn - 65 total Ts / 7 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
DE2 - Michael Johnson - 60 total Ts / 7 sacks / 1 pass defensed / 3 total TOs
DT1 - Gerald McCoy - 55 total Ts / 8 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
DT2 - Akeem Spence - 25 total Ts / 1 sack / 1 pass defensed / 0 total TOs
OLB1 - Lavonte David -  160 total Ts / 5 sacks / 8 passes defensed / 6 total TOs
OLB2 - Jonathan Casillas - 60 total Ts / 2 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
MLB - Mason Foster - 115 total Ts / 2 sacks / 6 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
CB1 - Alterraun Verner - 75 total Ts / 0 sacks / 17 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
CB2 - Johnthan Banks- 60 total Ts / 0 sacks / 11 passes defensed / 5 total TOs
S1 - Mark Barron - 120 total Ts / 1 sack / 12 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
S2 - Dashon Goldson -  90 total Ts / 0 sacks / 6 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
