Mike Glennon and the Buccaneers had a rough outing at home against the Minnesota Vikings. Glennon threw for just 171 yards, one touchdown and one interception. It was the weakest game of the year for Glennon, which is disappointing considering the Buccaneers were coming off their bye week. Glennon isn’t worth much as far as fantasy is concerned. He’s just a bye-week filler for owners that are in need of a fill-in quarterback.
Wide receiver Mike Evans outperformed his running mate Vincent Jackson against Minnesota. Evans totaled four catches for 78 yards. The rookie is quietly becoming a nice WR3 for fantasy purposes. He hasn’t scored less than seven points since week four and has 42 targets through 8 games.
Jackson had an abysmal day for fantasy owners, totaling just one catch for 13 yards on five targets. Halfway through the season, Jackson has just 357 yards and two touchdowns to show. The dysfunctional Buccaneers offense hasn’t helped his cause, but it’s been a disappointing year for Jackson.
Running back Doug Martin has been one of the most disappointing players in all of fantasy football through 8 weeks of the NFL season. He has recorded just 58 carries for 166 yards and one touchdown through seven games. With rookie Charles Sims coming off of injured reserve soon and Bobby Rainey performing decently in limited action, it could be rough sledding for Martin for the rest of the year.
Before fumbling the ball in overtime, a bright spot in the Buccaneers offense was Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who recorded his first NFL touchdown. It was Seferian-Jenkins’ second week with more than 5.8 fantasy points, so the arrow is trending upward.
