Mayfield is reportedly dealing with sore ribs following the Buccaneers’ Week 17 loss to the Saints, but the injury isn’t expected to sideline him for the team’s pivotal Week 18 matchup against the reeling Panthers. With the Buccaneers still squarely in the playoff mix and positioned with a very good matchup to ensure that they maintain their spot in the playoffs, Mayfield and the rest of Tampa Bay’s offense is likely to see at least a half of action against the Panthers where they’ll attempt to build up a lead and take the rest of the day off. Despite their 2-14 record, the Panthers have been quite stingy against opposing quarterbacks and wide receivers, so fantasy managers should absolutely temper expectations heading into a game where snaps could be limited.
