Welcome back to another edition of Bucs’ power rankings, where we rank the 25 best players on the Bucs’ roster.

Things continue to stay the same along the top, but there was a wave of movement from number four down. Biggest gainer this week is Tim Wright who racked up nine catches for just short of 100 yards. Other big movers up the ladder were Dekoda Watson, Vincent Jackson, and Donald Penn. Many qualify for the biggest decline, but I’ll single out Jeremy Zuttah as his descent has been a rapid one. The only newcomer is Mike James.

Rank Player Synopsis Change
1 Gerald McCoy Another week, another dominant performance. Ho hum. -
2 Darrelle Revis When he gets to guard, he’s unstoppable. When they make him play zone, he’s neutralized. -
3 Lavonte David At what point does the rest of the world realize how dominant this man is? -
4 Vincent Jackson He’s back. And he’s clearly the best weapon this offense has moving forward. ↑4
5 Donald Penn Every week Penn gets great grades, and the people ahead of him don’t. Up he goes. ↑4
6 Mason Foster Worst game of the year for Mason. Pass protection continues to be his nemesis. ↓2
7 Dekoda Watson Continues to impress. ↑5
8 Dashon Goldson Not sure if scheme is to blame, but he had a poor game. Too many times Bucs beat over the top. ↓3
9 Mark Barron Same as Goldson. Probably not the players talent at fault, but they have to shoulder the blame. ↓2
10 Carl Nicks This man cannot catch a break. One day he’ll get a week where he’s fully healthy. -
11 Doug Martin Nothing there all game. Bucs might need to get creative with Doug until the QB can lossen things up. ↓5
12 Akeem Spence No doubt he’s benefiting from playing next to McCoy, but he’s doing it well. ↓1
13 Adrian Clayborn Still don’t hear his name enough when watching the Bucs play. -
14 Demar Dotson Five straight positive grades. Not too bad. ↑3
15 Mike Williams Glennon needs all the help he can get, this team needs Mike back. ↓1
16 Tim Wright Pleasant surprise. Will it last? ↑9
17 Leonard Johnson Tackling becoming an issue. ↓2
18 Johnthan Banks You simply cannot get beat by Riley Cooper. ↓2
19 Jeff Demps Looking more and more like he could be very dangerous. Bucs need to get him the ball and watch. ↑1
20 Mike Glennon Better than debut, but still nothing to get excited about. ↑3
21 Da’Quan Bowers In for 16 plays. 9 were passes. He hit the QB twice. Nice. -
22 Davin Joseph Someone has to be blamed for the Bucs lack of run game vs. Philadelphia. ↑2
23 Jeremy Zuttah Found someone else to blame too. ↓5
24 Jonathan Casillas Having a nice season, but the starting LB’s have all been great. Hurting his stock badly. ↓5
25 Mike James As a spell to Martin, he looks pretty solid. Not sure he’s much more than that though. ↑1
