For the first time in the history of the National Football League, the defending champion is returning its entire starting lineup from the Super Bowl. 2021 Buccaneers player props reflect that across all legal sports betting markets.
Brady the GOAT. Lombardi Lenny. RoJo. Evans and Godwin. Gronk. Shaq Barrett. They’re all back, along with the rest of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ starting offensive and defensive units. Whether the Bucs repeat as champions is a discussion in itself, but the topic at hand is how oddsmakers are viewing the Bucs’ best players.
Hopefully, Florida sports betting apps will be coming soon for Bucs and other NFL fans in the state to get in on the action legally soon.

QB Tom Brady
Brady’s 2020 season was an unbelievable one, finishing with more than 4,600 yards passing (third in the league) and 40 touchdowns (second in the league) at 43 years old. What will 2021 look like? He has the shortest offering among 2021 Buccaneers player props in the major NFL betting markets.

RB Leonard Fournette
During the Super Bowl, you would’ve never know Fournette was almost cut Week 14. Donning his Lombardi Lenny persona, Fournette rumbled for 89 yards (5.6 yards per carry) and a TD on the ground and caught four passes for 46 yards. Overall, though, his season was a tepid one: 600 total yards and six touchdowns, and oddsmakers are taking that into account as they set the lines for Fournette’s 2020 season:
RB Ronald Jones II
RoJo was clearly the best back on the team in 2020, missing a 1,000-yard season by 22 yards. Jones’ best highlight came in Week 5 when he uncorked a 98-yard touchdown run against the Panthers. Looking ahead to 2021, oddsmakers see Jones’ regular-season production slipping:
WR Mike Evans
Evans made history in 2020 by becoming the first wide receiver in league history to start his career with seven consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Heading into the 2021 season, the lines oddsmakers are setting put Evans right around the 1,000-yard mark for an eighth straight season:
WR Chris Godwin
Godwin was productive in the 12 games he played last year, racking up more than 800 yards and hauling in seven touchdowns. Had he not missed time due to various injuries, it’s likely Godwin would’ve had a more productive season than Evans. Oddsmakers believe Godwin will have more receiving yards than Evans but fewer touchdowns.
WR Antonio Brown
After a a couple drama-filled offseasons, Brown joined the Bucs and became a valuable piece of the passing game in the second half of the season and playoffs, including a touchdown in the Super Bowl. Here’s how oddsmakers see him going into 2021:
TE Rob Gronkowski
The last time we saw Gronk, he and Brady were celebrating the tight end’s two tuddies in Super Bowl LV. While Gronk’s most productive days are behind him, Vegas still has plenty of lines for the thundering pass-catcher:
LB Shaq Barrett
Barrett’s eight-sack 2020 season didn’t quite measure up to his 19.5-sack 2019 season. However, he shook that off and had a fantastic playoff run, notching four sacks in the NFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl. Oddsmakers believe that Barrett’s sack total will bounce back in 2021:
