Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen. He’s got big play potential, and there is enough for him and Brate in that offense.

Adam Humphries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries continued to be a decent part of the passing game, catching six passes for 51 yards this week. He was able to do this with Ryan Fitzpatrick having to come in for Winston, so it shows that Humphries is a regular part of their offense.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Smell of Opportunity


DeSean Jackson will face Arizona's CB, Justin Bethel. Just as Jackson is known for torching players on deep receptions, Bethel is famous for getting burned. He is currently allowing the third most fantasy points per route run. Arizona has allowed 7 TDs to opposing WRs so far this season. In fact, in 5 weeks, they have allowed 6 different WRs to put up at least double-digit PPR points.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Here Comes The BOOM!


Since 2008, DeSean Jackson ranks first in pass plays of 30+ yards and second in plays of 20+ yards. He faces CB Justin Bethel who's allowed TDs of 37, 45, & 59 yards so far this season.
Jackson is the definition of a boom-bust guy throughout his career, but this is the week to start him. Everyone feasts on Bethel this year.

Cameron Brate

Great Matchup for Brate


Cameron Brate continues to become more involved in Tampa's offense. Thursday night, Brate will face the Patriots who have allowed the 5th most FF Points to opposing TEs. Tampa is at home. The matchup is one of two that Vegas has pegged to score north of 50 total points.

Waiver Wire Target


O.J. Howard had the long touchdown catch, but it was Brate down the stretch that got it done for Winston and the Bucs. He finished with four catches for 80 yards and a touchdown. Howard has more flash, but Brate is the safety blanket for Winston and out there on more snaps.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

Doug Martin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Fantasy Goo: Doug Martin’s ADP has risen to the point where he’s getting way too expensive. If he’s hanging around in the ninth or tenth he might be worth a shot, but there are probably better options to choose from before that point.

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Beard Goes To The Beach


Ryan Fitzpatrick had a very disappointing 2016 season, but after Glennon left for the Windy City, Tampa had to reload a backup QB and went with Fitzpatrick.

Fantasy Goo: I don't like this, I don't like it one bit. Our biggest knock on Winston is his high interception rate, and the Bucs bring in a vet who has thrown 32 picks in his last 30 games.

Chris Godwin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

TB Grabs 3rd Round WR


The Bucs have made a lot of splashes on offense adding DJAX, Howard and now Godwin as they look to give Winston a plethora of weapons.

Fantasy Goo: Like many other WRs in this draft, he will have to work his way into a starting role that Humphreys already has staked his claim on.

O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Amp Up Winston's Offense


The Bucs grab the consensus best TE in the draft in Howard. He should have an instant impact on the field. Let's just hope he finds more success off the field than the other O.J.

Fantasy Goo: If you look at Brate's 8 TD that would probably be what you expect to see from Howard. This is a good fit for him so he instantly becomes a lower end TE1.

Fantasy Goo: I don't like this, I don't like it one bit. Our biggest knock on Winston is his high interception rate, and the Bucs bring in a vet who has thrown 32 picks in his last 30 games.

Chris Godwin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

TB Grabs 3rd Round WR


The Bucs have made a lot of splashes on offense adding DJAX, Howard and now Godwin as they look to give Winston a plethora of weapons.

Fantasy Goo: Like many other WRs in this draft, he will have to work his way into a starting role that Humphreys already has staked his claim on.

O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Amp Up Winston's Offense


The Bucs grab the consensus best TE in the draft in Howard. He should have an instant impact on the field. Let's just hope he finds more success off the field than the other O.J.

Fantasy Goo: If you look at Brate's 8 TD that would probably be what you expect to see from Howard. This is a good fit for him so he instantly becomes a lower end TE1.

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

Waiver Wire Target


And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen. He’s got big play potential, and there is enough for him and Brate in that offense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Fantasy Goo: Doug Martin’s ADP has risen to the point where he’s getting way too expensive. If he’s hanging around in the ninth or tenth he might be worth a shot, but there are probably better options to choose from before that point.

Based on Stagg Party's SoS from tab 5 (of 25) of our Pyro Fantasy Football Draft Kit, Jameis Winston and the Tampa Buccaneers have the easiest schedule for any QB in 2017. Sam Bradford and the Vikings have the 2nd easiest, and Drew Brees and the Saints have the 3rd easiest schedule.

Fantasy Goo: Pretty scary when Mr. 5000 has an easy SoS, considering what he has done for fantasy owners, and where he is getting picked - bigtime value. Pick up our Draft Kit today: http://bit.ly/2017DraftKit-v2

Doug Martin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Fantasy Goo: Doug Martin’s ADP has risen to the point where he’s getting way too expensive. If he’s hanging around in the ninth or tenth he might be worth a shot, but there are probably better options to choose from before that point.

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Beard Goes To The Beach


Ryan Fitzpatrick had a very disappointing 2016 season, but after Glennon left for the Windy City, Tampa had to reload a backup QB and went with Fitzpatrick.

Fantasy Goo: I don't like this, I don't like it one bit. Our biggest knock on Winston is his high interception rate, and the Bucs bring in a vet who has thrown 32 picks in his last 30 games.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

TB Grabs 3rd Round WR

O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Amp Up Winston's Offense


The Bucs grab the consensus best TE in the draft in Howard. He should have an instant impact on the field. Let's just hope he finds more success off the field than the other O.J.

Fantasy Goo: If you look at Brate's 8 TD that would probably be what you expect to see from Howard. This is a good fit for him so he instantly becomes a lower end TE1.

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen. He’s got big play potential, and there is enough for him and Brate in that offense.

He is currently allowing the third most fantasy points per route run. Arizona has allowed 7 TDs to opposing WRs so far this season. In fact, in 5 weeks, they have allowed 6 different WRs to put up at least double-digit PPR points.

Since 2008, DeSean Jackson ranks first in pass plays of 30+ yards and second in plays of 20+ yards. He faces CB Justin Bethel who's allowed TDs of 37, 45, & 59 yards so far this season.
Jackson is the definition of a boom-bust guy throughout his career, but this is the week to start him. Everyone feasts on Bethel this year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

Doug Martin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Fantasy Goo: Doug Martin’s ADP has risen to the point where he’s getting way too expensive. If he’s hanging around in the ninth or tenth he might be worth a shot, but there are probably better options to choose from before that point.

O.J. Howard

Bucs Amp Up Winston's Offense


The Bucs grab the consensus best TE in the draft in Howard. He should have an instant impact on the field. Let's just hope he finds more success off the field than the other O.J.

Fantasy Goo: If you look at Brate's 8 TD that would probably be what you expect to see from Howard. This is a good fit for him so he instantly becomes a lower end TE1.

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen. He’s got big play potential, and there is enough for him and Brate in that offense.

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

Charles Sims

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Fantasy Goo: Doug Martin’s ADP has risen to the point where he’s getting way too expensive. If he’s hanging around in the ninth or tenth he might be worth a shot, but there are probably better options to choose from before that point.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen.

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

Cameron Brate continues to become more involved in Tampa's offense. Thursday night, Brate will face the Patriots who have allowed the 5th most FF Points to opposing TEs. Tampa is at home. The matchup is one of two that Vegas has pegged to score north of 50 total points.

Cameron Brate

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


O.J. Howard had the long touchdown catch, but it was Brate down the stretch that got it done for Winston and the Bucs. He finished with four catches for 80 yards and a touchdown. Howard has more flash, but Brate is the safety blanket for Winston and out there on more snaps.

Adam Humphries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries was a nice target for Jameis Winston this week, catching six passes for 70 yards. Humphries is doing a good job working underneath of DJax and Evans. He is worth keeping on your radar.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

The Bucs grab the consensus best TE in the draft in Howard. He should have an instant impact on the field. Let's just hope he finds more success off the field than the other O.J.

Fantasy Goo: If you look at Brate's 8 TD that would probably be what you expect to see from Howard. This is a good fit for him so he instantly becomes a lower end TE1.

This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen. He’s got big play potential, and there is enough for him and Brate in that offense.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Smell of Opportunity


DeSean Jackson will face Arizona's CB, Justin Bethel. Just as Jackson is known for torching players on deep receptions, Bethel is famous for getting burned. He is currently allowing the third most fantasy points per route run. Arizona has allowed 7 TDs to opposing WRs so far this season. In fact, in 5 weeks, they have allowed 6 different WRs to put up at least double-digit PPR points.

Since 2008, DeSean Jackson ranks first in pass plays of 30+ yards and second in plays of 20+ yards. He faces CB Justin Bethel who's allowed TDs of 37, 45, & 59 yards so far this season.
Jackson is the definition of a boom-bust guy throughout his career, but this is the week to start him. Everyone feasts on Bethel this year.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Smell of Opportunity


DeSean Jackson will face Arizona's CB, Justin Bethel. Just as Jackson is known for torching players on deep receptions, Bethel is famous for getting burned. He is currently allowing the third most fantasy points per route run. Arizona has allowed 7 TDs to opposing WRs so far this season. In fact, in 5 weeks, they have allowed 6 different WRs to put up at least double-digit PPR points.

Since 2008, DeSean Jackson ranks first in pass plays of 30+ yards and second in plays of 20+ yards. He faces CB Justin Bethel who's allowed TDs of 37, 45, & 59 yards so far this season.
Jackson is the definition of a boom-bust guy throughout his career, but this is the week to start him. Everyone feasts on Bethel this year.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen. He’s got big play potential, and there is enough for him and Brate in that offense.

Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen. He’s got big play potential, and there is enough for him and Brate in that offense.

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries continued to be a decent part of the passing game, catching six passes for 51 yards this week. He was able to do this with Ryan Fitzpatrick having to come in for Winston, so it shows that Humphries is a regular part of their offense.

The Smell of Opportunity


DeSean Jackson will face Arizona's CB, Justin Bethel. Just as Jackson is known for torching players on deep receptions, Bethel is famous for getting burned. He is currently allowing the third most fantasy points per route run. Arizona has allowed 7 TDs to opposing WRs so far this season. In fact, in 5 weeks, they have allowed 6 different WRs to put up at least double-digit PPR points.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trying Ryan may give you Fitz


There are some key QBs on bye in week 10 such as Carson Wentz, Alex Smith and Derek Carr. Oh, and Joe Flacco too, but if Flacco being on a bye is a problem for your lineup, then you're probably already focused on fantasy basketball. For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

For those that are in need of a QB for week 10, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a popular name popping up on waiver wires, as Fitzpatrick is starting in place of Jameis Winston (shoulder) this week at home against the Jets. Awesome right? Not so fast. 3 factors that are preventing me from buying in on some week 10 Fitz-Magic.

#1 - He will be without Mike Evans this week, who is serving a 1 game suspension for his hit on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

#2 - The Jets have exceeded expectations this season. Yea, the defensive is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to QBs, but I think Todd Bowles will have his defensive unit energized to get at the former Jets QB of the past 2 seasons.

#3 - See #1

If you need a QB beyond week 10 when the final round of bye weeks come around in week 11 then maybe Fitzpatrick can help your team. Evans will back by then too. However, for a 1 week flier, I'd much rather role with: Eli Manning @ SF or Andy Dalton @ TEN or Case Keenum @ WAS if they are still available.

Buyer Beware.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Finish Him!


"Mean" AJ Green and Mike "Tyson" Evans were involved in fights during their week 9 games on Sunday. Maybe the clocks moving back an hour messed up their beauty sleep? As a result, Evans is suspended for week 10 against the Jets, so get him out of your lineup.

Green, however, will play in week 10 as the Bengals head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. I'm looking for Green to explode against the Titans. Not with his fists, but his stats! Now, of course Green is starting in every format, regardless of his really bad idea to try and punch Jalen Ramsey in the head, that had a helmet on it, but I digress. At $7,900 in FanDuel, he is a MUST play, and will be in most of my lineups this week. (I'll cover my FD triple play later this week.)

Green will redeem himself emotionally this week, and that emotion will translate to great production.

AJ Green Wins. Fatality.

O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


And just like that, O.J. Howard has the 8th most fantasy points for tight ends in standard leagues. He put up 21.8 points, which is more points than Eric Ebron and Jordan Reed have on the season. He played in 71% of the teams snaps, which topped his biggest competition, Cameron Brate. O.J. was a first rounder, so get ready to see more and more of this specimen. He’s got big play potential, and there is enough for him and Brate in that offense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries continued to be a decent part of the passing game, catching six passes for 51 yards this week. He was able to do this with Ryan Fitzpatrick having to come in for Winston, so it shows that Humphries is a regular part of their offense.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Smell of Opportunity


DeSean Jackson will face Arizona's CB, Justin Bethel. Just as Jackson is known for torching players on deep receptions, Bethel is famous for getting burned. He is currently allowing the third most fantasy points per route run. Arizona has allowed 7 TDs to opposing WRs so far this season. In fact, in 5 weeks, they have allowed 6 different WRs to put up at least double-digit PPR points.

Since 2008, DeSean Jackson ranks first in pass plays of 30+ yards and second in plays of 20+ yards. He faces CB Justin Bethel who's allowed TDs of 37, 45, & 59 yards so far this season.
Jackson is the definition of a boom-bust guy throughout his career, but this is the week to start him. Everyone feasts on Bethel this year.

O.J. Howard had the long touchdown catch, but it was Brate down the stretch that got it done for Winston and the Bucs. He finished with four catches for 80 yards and a touchdown. Howard has more flash, but Brate is the safety blanket for Winston and out there on more snaps.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D-Jax a Giant Nightmare


I’m high on Jackson this week because I feel like he torches the Giants every time he plays them, although the numbers don’t necessarily support that. Like Scott Barrett I’m also secretly hoping someone from the Giants front office reads this and finally convinces McAdoo to bench Eli Apple for Ross Cockrell. The Giants have 2016’s No.6-graded outside cornerback in Janoris Jenkins to shadow and shut down Mike Evans, and 2016’s No.2-graded slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shut down Adam Humphries. This always funnels targets to the No. 2 outside wide receiver, in this case, Jackson, who will run the majority of his routes against Apple – our No. 11-worst-graded cornerback this year. In his last four games, Apple has seen 32 targets, allowing 21 receptions, 293 yards, and five touchdowns. I thought we would see Cromartie on Jackson, but Barrett studies these match-ups for a living so I’ll go with his analysis nine times out of ten.

Jeremy McNichols

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bucs Disappointed With McNichols


Bucs are waiving RB Jeremy McNichols, source says. McNichols has been extremely slow in picking up the playbook and extremely poor at pass-blocking assignments. I expect he will be added to their practice squad if he clears waivers.

Fantasy Goo: Charles Sims has immediate fantasy relevance, although he did not step-up when given the chance last year the opportunity has risen again. He was already banged-up last year when Martin was injured and Sims couldn’t hold up under a full workload. Last year hopes were high on Sims as he was being drafted in the 6-8th rounds, with expectations set so low for him this preseason he is probably still on your waiver wire. If you are thin at RB or drafted Elliot, Ware or any other RB that may not be playing the first few weeks you might want to throw a dart at Sims, more so in PPR leagues. Jacquizz Rodgers should still command the bulk of the carries until Martin returns from suspension.

Doug Martin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Fantasy Goo: Doug Martin’s ADP has risen to the point where he’s getting way too expensive. If he’s hanging around in the ninth or tenth he might be worth a shot, but there are probably better options to choose from before that point.

Ryan Fitzpatrick had a very disappointing 2016 season, but after Glennon left for the Windy City, Tampa had to reload a backup QB and went with Fitzpatrick.

Fantasy Goo: I don't like this, I don't like it one bit. Our biggest knock on Winston is his high interception rate, and the Bucs bring in a vet who has thrown 32 picks in his last 30 games.

The Bucs grab the consensus best TE in the draft in Howard. He should have an instant impact on the field. Let's just hope he finds more success off the field than the other O.J.

Fantasy Goo: If you look at Brate's 8 TD that would probably be what you expect to see from Howard. This is a good fit for him so he instantly becomes a lower end TE1.

PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart

The PYRO Fantasy Football Depth Chart is a rundown of where Team PYRO projects the fantasy production for each team at each position. It is NOT an attempt to inform you of the current starters for each team. For example, we are well aware that Brandon Manumaleuna is currently the starting TE for the Chicago Bears, but if you look at the Bears Team Page, we have Greg Olsen listed at TE. Why? We’re projecting that Greg Olsen will be the most Fantasy Football relevant TE for the Bears this season. Since Olsen will be the Bears leading FF point scorer at TE, it’s his name at the top of the TE column on our PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 2014 Preseason #FF Preview

buccaneers preseason preview


 


 


Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 2014 Preseason #FF Preview


 


 


 


Alright, alright, alright. Let’s get this Tampa Bay preview rolling by discussing… the Chicago Bears.  If you read my Pyro Index vol. 1, then you know the Chicago Bears have the most wins of any organization in football.


 




At the end of the 2013 season, they had a combined total of 747 wins, including the playoffs. Obviously, any coach is going to feel the heat in the windy city if they are not successful in with this organization. So, when Lovie Lee Smith coached the team in 2012 and they failed to reach the playoffs for the fifth time in six years, he was canned. That man was CANNED after all the HEAT.


 









 


 


So, fast forward to 2014, and Smith is in the coaching seat once again, this time in Tampa Bay. The Bucs were in the NFC North division once upon a time, but now round out the NFC South along with Atlanta, Carolina, and New Orleans. Smith, not known for his offensive prowess, will have a difficult time putting up points in that division. In his nine years coaching in Chicago, his average offensive rank for total points was 18th.


 


 


lovie smith high school


 




According to the projected Pyro Power Rankings for 2014, Carolina and New Orleans are in the top four for stingiest defenses. Those defenses are going to be tough this year, and teams facing them may find it difficult to put points on the board.  To quote Dawg on the subject of Lovie Smith: “Lovie’s name should be changed to Hatie for fantasy owners”. Truly, I have not heard such linguistic beauty since Keanu Reeve’s Shakespearian performance.


 









 




Take that Bill and Ted! Quarterbacking the Bucs through an excellent adventure this year is Josh McCown. He did a masterful job filling in for Cutler last year. He played in eight games but started only five. He was 149 for 224 on the season and totaled 1,829 yards. Amazingly, he tossed 13 touchdowns with only 1 interception, plus he ran another one in for a score. Of the five games he started, he went over 300 yards three times. The other two games were both over 200 yards. The important thing to remember, this was done under Marc Trestman. This is a huge reason why Pyro’s final draft kit ranking has McCown rated #24 at the position.  Some people have been touting McCown and his reunion with Smith. Alright, the two worked together, but when McCown was on fire last year, Lovie was no longer on staff. They don’t call Trestman the quarterback whisperer for nothing. I have serious doubts that McCown will put up the same caliber performance under Lovie Smith. Do not get caught up in the douche canoe hype. I have seen McCown on some crazy lists from some of those top 40 fantasy sites out there all claiming McCown is going to breakout. Tap the brakes, and remember Lovie Smith is no Jack Kennedy and he sure as hell isn’t Marc Trestman!


 




Mike Glennon is the backup to the 35 year old McCown. This is just Glennon’s second year in the league. Last year for Tampa, he started 13 games. On his biggest day, he threw for just 275 yards. On his worst day, he threw for 90. His completion percentage was just below 60%. He totaled 2,608 yards and tossed 19 TDs and 9 INTs. I could see Glennon getting some action this year. I just don’t know if McCown can with stand a full season as a starter. Glennon will have a better supporting cast this year, but the guy is wildly inconsistent. Pyro puts him at #41 for their final preseason ranking.


 




The Tampa 2 may no longer be defined as a defensive scheme created by Monte Kiffin and Tony Dungy after seeing the two Tampa receivers take the field this year. Sometimes, “it takes two to make a thing go right, it takes two to make it outta sight”.


 









 




The 2 I am referencing are the Tampa receivers in 2014: Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans. These two monsters are both 6”5’. So, you may ask yourself: Does height matter for wide receivers? Thank goodness Pyro has got your back on this one.


 


 


Starting off with Vincent Jackson, he is entering his 10th year in the NFL and 3rd in Tampa Bay. Since arriving, he finished 6th and 14th respectively for fantasy wide receivers. Last year he was targeted 159 times and pulled in 78 receptions. After doing some strenuous calculations, I have determined that is a 49% catch rate. Out of the top 35 targeted guys from 2013, that is 2nd worst (Torrey Smith 48.1%). It gets worse, his average yards per target was 7.85 yards beyond the line of scrimmage.  The average is 7.8 yards down field with a 58.5% catch rate. So, he was just average for his targets downfield, yet his catch rate was almost 10% worse than the norm.  He averaged 15.7 yards per catch. So, he doesn’t do too bad once he actually catches the ball, although the average yards per catch for receivers last year was 13.3. But the problem is the ball falls incomplete more often than not when thrown to him. Look, he can put up some big numbers. He had four games where he went for over 100 yards and on three of those occasions he also crossed the end zone. At those times, you love him on your team, he can win you a handful of weeks. Generally however, I want consistency on my fantasy roster. A Vincent Jackson is not bad if you have a couple other receivers that are giving solid performances week in and week out.  Pyro puts him just inside the top 20 for the final preseason rankings. My problem with him is the ADP, well, that and all the drops. As of the end of August, he is going in the 3rd round for 12 team leagues. That is a heavy price tag on a guy whose catch rate is just below 50%.


 





 




Continuing to look at the new Tampa 2, we turn our attention to Mike Evans. As of the latest ADP data, you can grab him 6 rounds later. He is going at the tail end of the 9th round for 12 team leagues. As stated, he is also 6”5’ but about 10 pounds lighter than Jackson. Evans weighs 231 and ran a 4.53. He played 2 years with Johnny Freefall at Texas A&M.  He had more receptions his first year, 82 to 69. But in his final year he had more yards and more TDs. In 2012 he had 1,105 yards and went to 1,394 last year. Then, his touchdowns rose from 5 to 12. He played in 13 total games last year. He went for over 100 yards 5 times, 2 of which went for over 200. He did have a tendency to disappear for a game here and there. There were a total of 5 games he totaled less than 60 yards, his worst being an 8 yard outing on 4 receptions. Pyro has him ranked at number 39, the third highest rookie receiver. Check out some of his college highlights.


 









 




Doug Martin burst onto the scene in 2012 and was just 74 shy of 2,000 all purpose yards. Stagg Party is highest on him with D-rx lowest. On the last tier sheet of the preseason, Staggs has Martin as high as #7 where as D-rx has him at #12. According to ADP’s from the end of August, he is going as the 12th running back off the board. Personally, I think there is a lot of hype on this kid who really has not shown us that much. In 2012, he totaled 12 touchdowns (11 rushing). He averaged 4.56 yards per carry. But his total rushing yards (1,454) were skewed with some heavy performances. He put up 251 yards in one game. Looking just a bit closer, you discover he did that against Oakland. He only had 4 other games were he rushed for over 100 yards that year. Then, there are the six games he played in 2014. He only went for over 100 yards once. He averaged a pedestrian 3.59 yards per carry. All of that was before the injury mind you. Plus, he only scored one rushing touchdown and one receiving touchdown and both of those came in week 1. Tampa is tied for the 14th easiest schedule against the run this year. By the way, in 2012, when he was at his best, Tampa had the 6th easiest rushing schedule. It’s not that I need to see it from a guy for several years before I am drinking the Kool-aid, hell, I am dancing to the Duke (Andre Ellington) in most of my drafts this year. But to me, Martin built a huge reputation on just one amazing game versus Oakland and has done little else since.  It’s not that he doesn’t have talent. But, I have him as my 15th running back, just below Le’veon Bell and Zac Stacy.


 


 



 


 


The official back up to Doug Martin is still a bit murky. Before they lost the rookie Simms for the season (most speculate), Rainey was the #2. At the end of last season, most bets were on Mike James. But, Rainey had an excellent camp. Both guys filled in nicely when Martin went down. In fact, I had both on my dynasty team at one point last year. Rainey has dominated the carries in the preseason but has not done much with it, maintaining an embarrassing 2 yards per rush on 32 carries. Although James has a better average (5 yards per carry) they have only handed it to him 6 times. Clearly, Rainey has been getting the reps, which indicates the team’s confidence in him as their #2.  In 12 team leagues with 16 roster spots, neither guy is being drafted according to late August ADPs. Instead of handcuffing Doug Martin, I would spend late round picks on guys like James White or Alfred Blue. You should be able to get a Martin backup off waivers if the need should arise.


 




Now that Tim Wright has become a Patriot, it leaves the tight end position a bit suspect in Tampa. While they solidified their offensive line in the deal, the remaining tight ends are the rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers. Pyro has Jenkins as their highest ranked Tampa tight end. He is another converted basket ball player which seems to be the trend these days. He set Washington school records with 146 receptions, 1,840 receiving yards, and 21 touchdowns for a tight end. The guy has talent, and now it looks like he will have the opportunity. Keep this in mind, rarely do rookie tight ends ever make an immediate impact. It generally takes several years for them to get going. Granted, we have witnessed that learning curve shorten as of late with the likes of the Jordans  (Cameron & Reed). But, chances are, this kid is still a year or two away from breaking out. He could be a guy to watch, but there is just too much talent at the position this year. If you end up waiting on tight end, take a Zack Ertz, Travis Kelce, or a Dwayne Allen instead. Seferian-Jenkins can be claimed off the wire if he ends up being the real deal.

ERRICT RHETT: THE HOLDOUT THAT ENDED HIS CAREER

Errict Rhett was a superstar running back for the Florida Gators and a second round, 34th overall, selection by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1994 NFL Draft. Errict Rhett had the potential to be one of the greatest running backs the NFL had ever seen, but a holdout for money would be the undoing to all that potential. 

Rhett is a player that has faded from memory for a lot of people, but I remember him as being a beast for the Florida Gators. The Gators have produced some of the greatest running backs in the NFL like Fred Taylor, Neal Anderson and of course Emmitt Smith. Although, Errict Rhett was the best running back to ever play at Florida, and he is still their all-time leader in yards. Here is how he stacks up to Emmitt Smith, who ranks second all-time behind Rhett. 

1. Errict Rhett: 1990-1993, Total Yards: 5393 yards (4163 rushing, 1230 rec) 34 td
2. Emmitt Smith: 1987-1989, Total Yards: 4391 yards (3928 rush, 463 rec) 36 td

When the Buccaneers selected Rhett in 1994, they were coming off a 5-11 season, and lacked any real firepower on offense. The Florida star stepped in and was welcomed with open arms in his home state, and did not disappoint with his rookie performance. Rhett became the starter halfway through the season, and finished with 1,011 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. The following season he had 1,207 rushing yards, while scoring 11 times. The feat was made even more impressive when you consider that the Bucs offensive line was one of the worst in the league at the time. Rhett also ran for 192 yards against the Redskins, which was the third best rushing game in team history. 

Heading into the 1996 season Rhett was under contract for $336,000, which was only $130,000 more than the lowest-paid running back in the league. So for a player that had been as effective as he was, it seemed fitting that he would want to holdout for a better deal. For Rhett, that was complicated by the fact that his agent was Drew Rosenhaus. Rosenhaus was known for dramatic holdouts to get his clients more money, but just about every general manager in the league also hated him. There was yet another issue with complicated things, and that was Buccaneers new head coach Tony Dungy.

Rhett, Rosenhaus and the Buccaneers were unable to reach an agreement before the start of the 1996 season. It was reported that Rhett turned down a six-year contract worth $2.3M per year. Rosenhaus was pushing for $3M per year with a $5M signing bonus, and thus began Errict’s 93-day holdout. Rhett, through Rosenhaus, said that he would not play unless he got a contract extension. Then Rosenhaus demanded the Bucs trade Rhett before the trade deadline that season, and that fell upon deaf ears as well. In the end, Rhett got nothing, and returned to the team under his same original contract.

When he returned to the team, he was not welcomed back with open arms. Tony Dungy was the new head coach, and his star running back had held out for half of the season on him. As far as Dungy was concerned, he did not need him. Errict would only run for 539 yards and three scores, with 3.1 YPC average. After the season ended, Dungy and the Buccaneers began to move the team in another direction.

The Buccaneers had drafted Mike Alstott in 1996 as a fullback to block for Rhett, but with Rhett missing games he was also used a lot as a rusher. Tony Dungy liked him so much, that he did not feel he needed the 5’11” 210 pound Rhett anymore. In 1997, with the 12th overall pick the Bucs looked to replace the former Florida star, with a then current Florida State star, Warrick Dunn. That pick was a death sentence for Rhett in Tampa. He did play the following season, but only had 31 carries for 96 yards and three scores in 11 games played. Dunn became the feature back, and Rhett was never the same player again.

The story of Errict Rhett did not have a good ending, and Rhett has only himself and his trust in Drew Rosenhaus to thank for that. It was poor decision after poor decision by Rosenhaus, coupled with Tony Dungy and his lack of respect for Rhett that derailed this once promising career.
