      Folk connected on field goals of 42, 50 and 23 yards and made two of three extra-point attempts in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The veteran kicker delivered as expected, providing a tangible reminder of why he quickly prevailed in the preseason kicking competition between him and Roberto Aguayo. Folk showed impressive leg on second-quarter 50-yarder and a missed extra-point attempt following Robert McClain's pick-six served as his only blemish on the day. Folk appears primed for plenty of scoring opportunities this season due to the Bucs' improved offense.

      Cross corralled his only target for six yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The reserve tight end was in on 16 offensive snaps and managed to get on the stat sheet in addition to serving as a blocker in the running game. Cross' level of production Sunday is likely representative of the type of modest numbers he'll provide on a weekly basis this season.

      Howard brought in one of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The 2017 first-round pick couldn't make much of an impact on the stat sheet, but that was likely a product of a game script that saw the Bucs already holding a commanding 26-0 lead by halftime. Howard's 46 snaps was a much more favorable number, however, as he notably outpaced position mate and co-starter Cameron Brate by eight plays. While the exact amount of usage both players will receive will naturally fluctuate week-to-week, Howard is expected to be given every opportunity to validate his draft status. He'll look to translate his playing time into more production in a Week 3 road tilt against the Vikings.

      Humphries corralled two of three targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: With the Bucs holding a commanding lead by halftime, the focus turned to the running game in the second half, leaving Humphries with minimal opportunities. Meanwhile, Mike Evans spearhead the receiving corps' efforts in the first half, leaving the rest of the pass catchers outside of DeSean Jackson with just three targets apiece. The slot receiver will look to improve on his numbers in a tough Week 3 road matchup against the Vikings.

      Read Analysis

      Thomas is out for the remainder of Monday's game with a groin injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Giants came into the contest thinner than usual at linebacker so the team will have to reach deep into the roster to find a replacement. From the looks of it, Curtis Grant, who was promoted to the active roster just prior to the game, could be the guy to fill in.

      Sims rushed twice for two yards and brought in two of three targets for seven yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears. He also lost a fumble.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The fourth-year back saw notably less opportunity than starter Jacquizz Rodgers (19 touches) and Peyton Barber (10 touches), although he outpaced the latter in offensive snaps by a 21-16 margin. A large part of the reason for the reduced usage appears to have been situational, as the Bucs held a comfortable second-half lead and used workhorse backs Rodgers and Barber to grind out the clock. Meanwhile, Sims once again projects to have a sizable role in the passing game, especially in games that are lot more competitive than Sunday's blowout victory. He'll look to up his production against a tough Vikings defense in Week 3.

      Barber carried 10 times for 47 yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Barber saw all 16 of his snaps in the second half and made the most of them, posting the second-highest rushing total of his career. The 23-year-old saw five less snaps than backfield mate Charles Sims behind starter Jacquizz Rodgers, but he received eight more carries. However, it's noteworthy that unbalanced distribution came in a game in which the Bucs held a comfortable second-half lead, which eliminated some of the passing-down situations that Sims is often utilized in. Barber is still projected to see a handful of carries for the next two games while Doug Martin finishes serving out his suspension and also fill a role on special teams.

      Hill (suspension) was reinstated Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Hill was handed a two-game suspension in May for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The 26-year-old was likely only a depth cornerback and special teams player for the Rams coming into the season, but could potentially see more defensive snaps if Kayvon Webster (shoulder) misses any more time.

      Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Lawson's availability could wind up making the difference for a Buffalo defense that will be tasked with cooling off the sizzling-hot Broncos offense. Last week, Denver looked unstoppable en route to a 42-17 win over Dallas. Trevor Siemian and C.J Anderson look like their peaking offensively, but this will be Denver's first road contest of the season. Buffalo usually plays well at home and the defense has stood its ground in the early going. It's tough to bet against how hot the Broncos have been recently, but a road environment could help keep them in check in Week 3.
