Bucs signed Antonio Brown to a one-year contract. The final details of the contract have to be finalized and Brown must go through COVID-19 protocols, but Brown is eligible to play as soon as Week 9 according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown and Tom Brady have a relationship dating back years, and Tampa Bay is all in for a 2020 Super Bowl run. For fantasy, it will be difficult for Brown, Chris Godwin, and Mike Evans to see sustained production unless Brady turns into a true MVP candidate for the rest of the season. Brown's upside, however, is undeniable, making him at least a WR3/flex option once he gets his feet wet in the new system. Mr. Big Chest will have to keep his head on straight to make this signing pay off.

Raiders activated C Rodney Hudson from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Fellow OL starters LT Kolton Miller, LG Denzelle Good, and RG Gabe Jackson have also been cleared after all four starters were place on the list earlier in the week following an exposure to RT Trent Brown. It’s a big sigh of relief for Derek Carr and Josh Jacobs.
