1. Is Brian Griese worth drafting as a fantasy starter or backup this season?
scout.com: He's had a mostly checkered career as a starting quarterback over his seven years of play but at times, Griese can be very effective. Last season, he had a run of at least two touchdown passes in 7 out of 10 games and really seemed to be coming on before suffering a foot injury which kept him out of the last game of the season.
While Griese has shown good potential at times, he hasn't been able to ever sustain it over a full season of play which is why he should be drafted only as a backup, not a starter.
2. Who will be the most valuable running back, Michael Pittman or Cadillac Williams?
scout.com: The fact that the team selected Williams with the third pick over all in this year's draft is a clear indication that they aren't happy with Pittman despite his career-best rushing from numbers last season.
The two will vie for the starting job but Williams offers breakaway speed which Pittman doesn't possess. Look for Williams to be the starter this season and for Pittman to handle the third down and passing situation role.
3. Will second-year WR Michael Clayton follow up last year's performance with another one this season?
scout.com: While Clayton's performance didn't come out of no where, it certainly had to be a surprise. Many rookie receivers don't put up big numbers so the fact that he did is a good sign of things to come. Head coach Jon Gruden selected him for a reason. He knew Clayton was a physical type of receiver that while not fast, could still stretch defenses.
Look for Clayton to continue to improve and to be worth starting every week this year.
4. Is WR Joey Galloway still worth drafting as a fantasy starter?
scout.com: Back in his formative NFL years, Galloway as a sure-fire fantasy starter. However, he turns 34 this season and has seen his better days. He still had his moments last season and when healthy, he's still a threat to go deep. While he's not worth selecting as a fantasy starter, he should prove to be a solid selection for depth purposes.
5. Is their fantasy defense worth drafting as a starter or backup?
scout.com: For many years, the Buccaneers' fantasy defense was either the first or second one selected. After a few older players were not brought back, there has been a slight drop-off in the defensive production overall. Still, they're solid and worth drafting as a fantasy starter but your expectation level should drop a little.
