The biggest fantasy headline of the Buccaneers week 9 game against the Browns was the excellent play of rookie wide receiver Mike Evans, who torched Cleveland’s secondary all day long. Evans was the second-best wide receiver and the sixth-best overall player in all of fantasy football against the Browns. The rookie racked up 7 catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns on 11 targets. The first-round pick is on pace for 64 catches, 920 yards and 8 touchdowns. He hasn’t scored less than 7.8 points since week three.
Veteran receiver Vincent Jackson was actually targeted 12 times against the Browns, but he only managed to haul in six of them. Cleveland cornerback Joe Haden did a good job against Jackson, which had a lot to do with Evans’ great game. Jackson managed to tally 86 receiving yards for his fantasy owners but his value is trending downward with the emergence of Evans.
Bobby Rainey got the start at running back with Doug Martin injured and Charles Sims inactive and the second-year pro had a very productive fantasy day. Rainey carried the ball 19 times for 87 yards and caught a pass for 34 yards. It was a promising game for the Buccaneers rushing attack, who are expected to get Charles Sims back next week against the Falcons.
Rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was a massive fantasy bust against the Browns. The Washington product caught just one pass for three yards on three targets. It was statistically his worst game of the season. He’s off the fantasy radar until the Buccaneers start using him more.
Mike Glennon had a poor game against the Browns and it resulted in him getting benched in favor for Josh McCown for the team’s week 10 matchup against. But for fantasy purposes, Glennon wasn’t all that bad. He totaled 260 yards and threw for two touchdowns and two interceptions, which was good enough for 18 fantasy points. With McCown taking over, Glennon can be dropped in all formats.
