No matter how poor a team may look in the standings, there is always fantasy value to be found on its roster. That's the case for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which have a pair of receivers who've been making noise: wideout Tiquan Underwood and tight end Timothy Wright.

Here's what you need to know about their fantasy outlook.

It was a rough night for the Bucs on Thursday Night Football, but quarterback Mike Glennon still managed to find Wright five times for 48 yards and a touchdown on eight targets. Underwood wasn't too bad with his production, catching three passes for 47 yards.

All in all, it was a strong outing from the former Rutgers Scarlet Knights stars.

It can only get better as Glennon receives more experience under center.

It's worth noting that Wright scored most of his fantasy football points during the garbage minutes of the game. With that being established, the receiving tight end has 26 targets over the span of his past four games, topping six in three of those outings.

It's risky to start Wright, but he should be on your fantasy football roster.

Underwood had just one catch entering the game, and so his three-reception and four-target game shouldn't turn too many heads. He's worth flagging on the free agent market and monitoring as the season goes on, but until Underwood can develop any form of consistency, he's not worth touching in standard or PPR leagues.

Both players are worth monitoring, but if you're taking a gamble, it should be on Wright.
