Quarterback Josh McCown had an awful game against the Falcons on Thursday night. The 36-year old signal caller injured his thumb on a Falcons’ player’s helmet and never returned to the game. Before exiting in the second quarter, McCown completed just five of 12 passes for 58 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception. It’s unlikely that McCown plays against the Steelers next week, so backup quarterback Mike Glennon will take the reins of a struggling Tampa Bay offense.
Running back Bobby Rainey had a miserable performance just one week removed from a 100-yard rushing game. He lost two fumbles and was benched for a period of time in the first half. He later returned to the game and managed to catch seven passes for 64 yards. His fantasy day was salvaged but he didn’t have a good outing. With Doug Martin returning from his knee injury Rainey’s workload will be minimal, but he’s still worth rostering in most formats.
Wide receiver Vincent Jackson only caught two passes for 15 yards on Thursday night, but luckily for fantasy owners one of them was for a touchdown. With McCown injured and Glennon stepping in, Jackson’s numbers could improve but the Buccaneers’ offense is a mess right now.
Rookie wide receiver Mike Evans caught four of his seven targets for 52 yards against the Falcons. He’s an excellent player to hold in dynasty leagues, but in re-draft formats he’s just a backup until he proves otherwise.
The Buccaneers defense was absolutely atrocious, allowing 56 points to the Falcons on Thursday night. Despite their terrible performance, they manage to record a sack, three fumble recoveries, and an interception return for touchdown. Those big plays salvaged their fantasy prospects for week three but their long-term fantasy outlook does not look good.
