In this podcast we discuss:


  • Buccaneers Downfielders – Chris Godwin out ACL. Mike Evans hamstring – Q for W16. Antonio Brown set to return in the nick of time.
  • Tyler Huntley – Too good to be a backup?
  • Leonard Fournette – Helicopter spin tackle may only cause Fournette to miss one two games. Tight for fantasy playoffs.
