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.

Previous Rankings: Pre | P1 | P2 | P3 | P4 | W1 | W2 | W3 | W4 | BYE

1Gerald McCoyAnother week, another dominant performance. Ho hum.
2Darrelle RevisWhen he gets to guard, he’s unstoppable. When they make him play zone, he’s neutralized.
3Lavonte DavidAt what point does the rest of the world realize how dominant this man is?
4Vincent JacksonHe’s back. And he’s clearly the best weapon this offense has moving forward.↑4
5Donald PennEvery week Penn gets great grades, and the people ahead of him don’t. Up he goes.↑4
6Mason FosterWorst game of the year for Mason. Pass protection continues to be his nemesis.↓2
7Dekoda WatsonContinues to impress.↑5
8Dashon GoldsonNot sure if scheme is to blame, but he had a poor game. Too many times Bucs beat over the top.↓3
9Mark BarronSame as Goldson. Probably not the players talent at fault, but they have to shoulder the blame.↓2
10Carl NicksThis man cannot catch a break. One day he’ll get a week where he’s fully healthy.
11Doug MartinNothing there all game. Bucs might need to get creative with Doug until the QB can lossen things up.↓5
12Akeem SpenceNo doubt he’s benefiting from playing next to McCoy, but he’s doing it well.↓1
13Adrian ClaybornStill don’t hear his name enough when watching the Bucs play.
14Demar DotsonFive straight positive grades. Not too bad.↑3
15Mike WilliamsGlennon needs all the help he can get, this team needs Mike back.↓1
16Tim WrightPleasant surprise. Will it last?↑9
17Leonard JohnsonTackling becoming an issue.↓2
18Johnthan BanksYou simply cannot get beat by Riley Cooper.↓2
19Jeff DempsLooking more and more like he could be very dangerous. Bucs need to get him the ball and watch.↑1
20Mike GlennonBetter than debut, but still nothing to get excited about.↑3
21Da’Quan BowersIn for 16 plays. 9 were passes. He hit the QB twice. Nice.
22Davin JosephSomeone has to be blamed for the Bucs lack of run game vs. Philadelphia.↑2
23Jeremy ZuttahFound someone else to blame too.↓5
24Jonathan CasillasHaving a nice season, but the starting LB’s have all been great. Hurting his stock badly.↓5
25Mike JamesAs a spell to Martin, he looks pretty solid. Not sure he’s much more than that though.↑1
