The Tampa Bay Buccaneers depth chart got a lot deeper after they brought in a few names over the offseason. They will go from Jameis Winston to Tom Brady, but also bring in Rob Gronkowski to muck up the tight end position. OJ Howard and Cameron Brate are all expected to slide down to allow Gronkowski to be a primed player, however, Tampa should line up with two tight ends. The best receiving duo in the league in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but they did draft Justin Watson and Tyler Johnson over the last few seasons to give them some depth. They also added Ke'Shawn Vaughn who will compete with Ronald Jones for a starting role.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Depth Chart FAQ

It was a big offseason for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as they landed Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. This will certainly cause the headlines to erupt in Tampa as Brady will be throwing to one of the best-receiving cores in the league. Tampa Bay has Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, but also a couple of quality tight ends. Defensively this team is starting to make their move as they were top five against the run last season, making it tough in fantasy for running backs against them. Against the pass, they found their legs a bit but still have some work to do.

Who Are The Buccaneers Running Backs?

Ronald Jones, Ke'Shawn Vaughn, and Dare Ogunbowale are the three running backs that will all compete for playing time. Tampa Bay has had a revolving door of backs lately, and none of them completely earned a starting role.

Who Backs Up Tom Brady?

With Jameis Winston moving to New Orleans and Tom Brady coming into Tampa, they have Blaine Gabbert in the backup role. This is not a vote of confidence if Brady goes down with an injury.

Who Are The Buccaneers Starting Wide Receivers?

Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are the starting wide receivers for Tampa Bay. Both are considered to be two of the best in the league and were a big part of why Tampa’s offense put up big numbers last season.

Do Any Rookies Start For The Buccaneers?

Needing help with the offensive line, they drafted Tristan Wirfs out of Iowa. He was a highly touted pick and will plug right into the starting offensive line. Antoine Winfield is the other rookie who might see some starts.

What Is The Strongest Part Of The Buccaneers Depth Chart?

The wide receiver core is the strongest part of the Buccaneers depth chart. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are the highlights, but they have younger talent like Tyler Johnson and Justin Watson that sit behind them.

Does Rob Gronkowski Start?

With Tampa Bay using a lot of two-tight end sets, Rob Gronkowski will certainly be starting. Given his return from retirement, it would only be in his best interest if he was coming back into being a starter.
