osh McCown struggles continued in the Buccaneers’ week 14 matchup with the Detroit Lions. The veteran signal caller threw for 250 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, which totaled less than 15 fantasy points in most formats. Over the last three weeks, McCown’s fantasy totals have been 15, 14 and six. This week he gets the Carolina Panthers on the road. Owners should stay away from Buccaneers quarterbacks for the remainder of the season.
Mike Evans bounced back from a poor week 13 performance against the Bengals and scored caught two touchdowns against the Detroit Lions, one of the league’s best defenses. Evans has been phenomenal this season and is an every week starter in fantasy.
Vincent Jackson had his best fantasy performance of the season against the Lions in week 13. The veteran was targeted a whopping 17 times and he caught 10 of those for 159 yards. It was a positive sign for fantasy owners, but everyone knows the true fantasy threat for the Buccaneers’ passing game is Mike Evans. Jackson is just a WR3 moving forward.
Doug Martin reverted back to his old fantasy ways just one week after a nice performance against the Bengals. The third-year back ran for just 22 yards on five carries against one of the league’s best defenses. The Tampa Bay running game has been a disaster all season long and doesn’t look like it is going to be fixed by seasons end. Martin, Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims are not recommended fantasy starts as the fantasy playoffs move forward.
Rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins missed the last two game with a back injury, but he looks to be on track to start against the Panthers this week. However, the second-round pick isn’t a recommended fantasy start. The rookie has totaled just 221 yards and two touchdowns this season and hasn’t had enough targets to warrant any fantasy consideration.
