Stocker caught one pass for eight yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.
Following the trade of Tim Wright to the Patriots, Stocker slots in as the Bucs' No. 3 TE behind Brandon Myers and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. It's an assignment that figures to yield sporadic fantasy production from Stocker.

ESPN Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas believes fourth-year TE Luke Stocker could be expendable after the team drafted Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
Stocker has been a total bust since being the 104th overall pick in the 2011 draft. He's reeled in just 28 passes for 257 yards and one touchdown across 32 career games. Stocker is now fourth on the depth chart, be hid ASJ, Brandon Myers, and Tim Wright. Stocker and Tom Crabtree are likely the odd men out at tight end.

Bucs TE Luke Stocker is not participating in voluntary workouts this week due to an undisclosed ailment.
Stocker went on injured reserver with a hip injury in late September, but it's unclear if the two situations are related. "That's hurting guys like him," said coach Lovie Smith about Stocker not taking part this week. The fourth-year tight end has just one year left on his rookie deal and won't be handed anything.

Buccaneers placed TE Luke Stocker (hip) on injured reserve, ending his season.
A 2011 fourth-round pick, Stocker has been a huge disappointment for a Tampa Bay organization that once envisioned him as a future starter and Jason Witten type. Stocker was completely ineffective in the two games he played this season. Stocker is signed cheaply for 2014, but may have to compete just to keep his roster spot. He's a No. 2- or No. 3-caliber NFL tight end.

Bucs activated TE Luke Stocker (calf) from active/PUP.
Stocker is expected to be the Bucs' starting tight end, focusing on blocking. "He's not ready to go, but he was taken off PUP because he was going to do some things with pads on, which is the rule," coach Greg Schiano said. "He's moving in the right direction."

The Bucs released their first unofficial depth chart and listed Luke Stocker as the starting tight end.
As expected. Stocker has the most talent of the Bucs' shallow stable of tight ends that also includes Tom Crabtree, Zach Miller, Danny Noble, and Nate Byham. Stocker has been missing early camp practices due to injury, however, and isn't an intriguing fantasy prospect in redraft formats.

The Tampa Bay Times projects Luke Stocker as the Bucs' starting tight end but admits he'll face "serious competition."
Beat writer Stephen Holder is giving the nod to Stocker based on his experience in the offense and his draft position. Tom Crabtree will likely give Stocker his biggest challenge, but the Bucs reportedly internally believe both Danny Noble and Nate Byham have "legitimate upside." Even if Stocker wins the job, he isn't a very intiguing fantasy prospect in redraft leagues.

The Tampa Bay Times suggests that Luke Stocker is currently penciled in as the Bucs' starting tight end.
Not breaking news. Behind Stocker on the depth chart are a host of players just hoping to make the team. Tom Crabtree is the biggest threat, but he has all of 18 career catches in 46 games. The Bucs reportedly have "a lot of confidence" in 6-foot-5 Stocker, but he isn't an intriguing fantasy option in redraft formats.

The Tampa Bay Times believes the Bucs have "a lot of confidence" in third-year TE Luke Stocker.
Stocker, a fourth-round pick out of Tennessee, has just 28 catches for 257 yards and a touchdown across his first 30 career games. The 6-foot-5, 253-pound tight end ended the season on a high note with three catches for 50 yards in the Week 17 finale last season, and he is currently penciled in as the starter. Dallas Clark is a free agent, and he is not expected to be re-signed.
