The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a lot to prove as a team in 2020, but these players will have the most weight on their shoulders going into the season.

Having expectations and meeting those expectations is the name of the game for the Buccaneers in 2020.

Every analyst seems to think that this team has become one of the most dominant in the NFC throughout the offseason, and Tampa Bay is just hoping that the season will happen to prove the pundits right or wrong, depending on where they stand.

In addition to the team, the individual players also have a lot on the line, although a trip into the deeper part of the playoffs will prove something.

Playing for the Buccaneers has often been detrimental for most players as they rarely ever play in primetime games and are mostly shown in highlights for other teams. With that narrative quickly changing, many players in Tampa Bay will be under heavy scrutiny from the start of the season due to the mounting expectations that have formed and the increased access to important games.

The good news and the bad news for the Bucs is that almost every player will be judged every week, and this exposure could make or break careers, especially those with something to prove in 2020.
