It was largely status quo (woe?) on the Bucs’ official injury report today.

Justin Evans (toe) and DeSean Jackson (thumb) didn’t practice, as was the case for Jason Pierre-Paul (knee/hip).

JPP practiced yesterday and was in very good spirits when Joe saw him in the halls of One Buc Palace today.

This is a playoff week for virtually all fantasy leagues and if you are in an elimination game, there’s not much that really appeals to you in Bucs-Ravens. In this Bucs Bulletin Edition of The Todd Wright Fantasy Football Podcast, presented by Brandon Legal Group, Todd discusses the Ravens defense and how it limits who the Bucs can offer to help you win this week. And while the Bucs defense has nothing to do with it, the Ravens offense has minimal impact performers as well. Especially now that a QB change could happen on the Baltimore side at any moment, much like it has multiple times in Tampa Bay this season. Todd offers you a second opinion on all your fantasy playoff situations at [email protected].
