Quarterback Josh McCown played very poorly against the Bears but his fantasy numbers weren’t bad. The veteran threw for 341 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, which was good enough for 14 fantasy points in most formats. His final numbers were somewhat disappointing because of the excellent matchup he was presented with in Chicago. McCown is just a QB2 moving forward.
Rookie sensation Mike Evans had a very inefficient game against the Bears, catching just three of his 11 total targets. Evans did make his fantasy owners happy by scoring a touchdown and racking up 47 yards. Evans has been one of the top wide receivers in all of fantasy football. Keep him in the starting lineup against the Bengals.
Vincent Jackson had a very good fantasy day against the Bears, totaling five catches for 117 yards. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Jackson lost fantasy points for his owners when he fumbled the ball and the Bears recovered, but it was a nice bounce-back game from last week’s four point performance. Jackson will move forward as a low-end WR2.
The Buccaneers backfield turned into a full-blown timeshare with Doug Martin healthy. Martin carried the rock 11 times while Charles Sims totaled six carries. Bobby Rainey was the odd man out as a runner and got just one carry, but he was targeted six times in the passing game. No Buccaneers receiver totaled more than 3.3 fantasy points against the Bears in week 12. Tampa Bay’s backfield is simply too crowded at this point and time.
Rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught just two passes for 16 yards before exiting with an injury against the Bears. It’s been a slow rookie season for the Washington product but he remains a high-upside prospect for dynasty leagues and deep leagues. His status for next week’s matchup against the Bengals is unclear.
