Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fantasy Football Projections

Updated: January 24, 2021


Below you will find our fantasy football projections for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their matchup against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerPAPCYDSTDINTRushYDSTDFP
Tom Brady36.824.12762.150.811.910.1519.02
With the most talented group of pass-catchers in his career, Brady threw for 4,633 yards, 40 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. The 40 touchdowns were the second-most of his career and his 6.6% TD% was his highest since 2010. In his first season with the Bucs, Brady scored the eighth-most fantasy points in 2020. Like other quarterbacks on this list, Brady's regular-season matchup against this week's opponent was one of his more modest performances. Given that the Buccaneers won that game by a 28-point margin, Brady threw only 27 pass attempts for 166 yards (6.15 Y/A) and two touchdowns.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Leonard Fournette10.944.10.332.314.70.029.13
Handling 36 carries and catching nine-of-10 targets in Tampa's two playoff games, Fournette has surpassed 100 scrimmage yards and scored in back-to-back games this postseason. During that span, he has handled roughly twice as many touches as Ronald Jones (25), but Jones enters Sunday's game the healthiest he's been this postseason. In the regular season, Fournette (3.78 YPC, 6.47 Y/R) was much less efficient than Jones (5.09 YPC, 5.89 Y/R).
Ronald Jones10.546.20.341.811.90.048.99
The third-year back was just shy of his first 1,000-yard season, but he set career highs in both rushing yards (978), yards per carry (5.1) and total touchdowns (eight). Upgraded to a full participant at Friday's practice, Jones had 13 carries for 62 scoreless yards against the New Orleans Saints last week. Fournette will likely lead the backfield once again, but it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see a healthier RoJo just as (or even more) involved as (than) Fournette.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Chris Godwin6.477.40.6400014.78
Posting a career-high catch rate (77.4%) and career-low Y/R (12.9), Godwin has seen his overall per-game production decline on a year-over-year basis: 6.1/95.2/0.64 (2019) to 5.4/70.0/0.58 (2020). Godwin had a relatively modest performance against the Packers in Week 6 with five catches for 48 yards on seven targets. Given that Mike Evans will likely draw a lot of Jaire Alexander and Antonio Brown will miss Sunday's game, Godwin offers as much upside as any receiver outside the top three this weekend.
Mike Evans4.7630.5600012.01
Although he set a career low in yards per game (62.9), Evans exceeded the 1,000-yard mark -- now seven consecutive seasons to begin his career -- and set a career high with 13 scores. Facing one of the league's best corners (Jaire Alexander), Evans has a difficult matchup and had just one catch for 10 yards on two targets in their regular-season matchup.
Tyler Johnson224.80.210004.74
Scotty Miller1.924.30.170.10.504.45

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Cameron Brate3.9380.330007.73
It has been Brate, not Rob Gronkowski, as the team's most productive tight end in the postseason. Brate followed up his four-catch, 80-yard performance in the Divisional Round with a four-catch, 50-yard performance against the New Orleans Saints last week. Along with his 4/54 outing in Week 15, those were two of his three 50-yard games this year.
Rob Gronkowski2.630.60.360006.52
Through two playoff games, Gronk has only one catch for 14 scoreless yards on six targets. With Antonio Brown ruled out, there may be an extra target or two for the tight ends this week, but Gronk is a TD-dependent play, even in two-game slate.
