Heading into week six, the Buccaneers best option for fantasy purposes will be wide receiver Vincent Jackson. The veteran pass-catcher is coming off an eight reception performance against the Saints where he racked up 144 yards. Mike Glennon loves throwing the ball his way, so expect Jackson make a minimum of five catches this week against the Ravens. He’s a must start WR2 with Glennon at quarterback.
Speaking of Glennon, the second-year quarterback has put up good fantasy numbers over the last two weeks. He’s thrown two touchdowns in each game and hasn’t thrown for less than 249 yards in either contest. Glennon has some big-time red zone weapons at his disposal so his touchdown numbers should stay high. He’s a QB2 this week against the Ravens.
Rookie wide receiver Mike Evans, who was expected to miss this week’s game against the Ravens, is on track to start. Evans had a breakout game against the Steelers two weeks ago before injuring his groin, so it will be interesting to see how he produces with Mike Glennon throwing to him for an entire game. Right now, Evans is a WR4 with upside.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins had a rough game last week against the Saints but he will look to improve as the team faces Baltimore this week. The rookie played 61-of-64 snaps and has incredible upside, so he’s worth rostering as a stash bench player that could help later on in the season.
The Ravens have allowed the fifth fewest points to opposing fantasy defense this year, so it would be a wise decision to leave the Buccaneers defense out of your lineup this week. With that being said, Tampa Bay’s defense has been doing a good job of getting turnovers and creating fantasy point opportunities. They haven’t scored less than seven fantasy points in their last three matchups.
