If you had to name a lesser known player that could have a major impact on Sunday, on either side of the ball, who would that be?

Each week, it seems as if there is a new hero for this team that steps up in a big way. We’ve had Jacquizz Rodgers, Chris Conte, Alterraun Verner, and most recently Keith Tandy. A “lesser known” guy to keep an eye on Sunday would have to be wide receiver Josh Huff. He was just called up from the practice squad due to the injuries to Adam Humphries and Cecil Shorts. He was cut by Philadelphia following a weapons and marijuana charge and the Bucs stashed him on their practice squad. He can certainly be an impactful player on special teams, but given the injury issues he will see time at receiver.

He’s not going to put up crazy fantasy numbers or anything like that, but he’s certainly dangerous in space. Huff is incredibly fast and can make plays once the ball is in his hands. His best career game in Philly was, ironically, against the Saints where he had 78 yards and a touchdown. Winston will find ways to get him the ball and put him in position to make something happen.
