Pewter Power Rankings is a weekly feature compiled by PewterReport.com’s Fantasy Football Analyst Andrew Scavelli every Tuesday during the regular season. Each week Scavelli will rank the league’s teams from best to worst based on their performance and outlook going forward at that point of the season, with a focus on the Buccaneers.

CURRENT BUCCANEERS RANKING: 22 (-2)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
At the midpoint of the 2018 season, the Buccaneers are exactly what their 3-5 record suggests – a slightly below average football team. Tampa Bay has proven that they aren’t quite ready to compete with the elite franchises in the top 10, aside from week one’s miracle at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but they can put up a a good fight with the rest of the league and have a 50-50 shot to win those games. Since week one not much has changed for the Bucs either, as they are still on pace to become by far the best offense in team history but the worst defense in the history of the NFL. In the upcoming third quarter of the season, Tampa Bay has three very winnable games to start against the Redskins, Giants and 49ers before facing the Panthers again at home so there’s a real opportunity for this team to get back to .500 before things are too far gone.

  1. Seeing the Saints as the #1 team angers me. Not that I disagree, but damn the Bucs had the momentum to start the season beating them on the road!

  2. ESPN and SI both have the Bucs at #25 this week. No change from last week.

    ESPN also published their top 3 and bottom three quarterbacks for the first half of the 2018 season. And Fitz made the top 3, at no. 3. Based on total QBR scores.

    Interestingly, ESPN determined that Fitz has the no. 1 QBR in the league for plays over 20 yards.

    Guess which quarterback has the worst QBR for plays over 20 yards …. why none other than Jameis Winston.
