Fantasy spin: Buccaneers acquire TE Winslow

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have acquired Kellen Winslow from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for undisclosed draft picks.

Winslow was an absolute fantasy superstar with the Browns in 2007, hauling in 82 passes for 1,106 yards with five touchdowns. Injuries limited him to 10 games last season, but his value is back on the rise as a result of this deal.

With Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard released and Michael Clayton now a free agent, Winslow becomes the second option in the team’s pass attack behind Antonio Bryant.

The Buccaneers are also expected to start the inexperienced Luke McCown next season, and he’ll look to Winslow often as his safety net in the pass attack.

While injuries are a concern, Winslow should still be seen as one of the better tight ends in fantasy football.

Once Jason Witten, Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez and Dallas Clark come off the board, look for Winslow’s name to be called somewhere in the middle rounds.
