The Buccaneers had a few fantasy contributors’ names brought up before the trade deadline on Tuesday. One of them was veteran receiver Vincent Jackson, who has been a disappointment for fantasy owners this year. Last week he killed his fantasy owners by putting up just 13 yards. He’s becoming very difficult for owners, who drafted him very high, to trust. He’s just a WR3 in the Buccaneers brutally bad offense.
On the other side of the offensive formation, rookie Mike Evans has actually been one of the Buccaneers most consistent producers as far as fantasy is concerned. He hasn’t scored less than seven points since week four and has 42 targets through 8 games. He can be started as a WR3 if there aren’t any better options on your team.
Doug Martin was brought up in rumors as the trade deadline neared on Tuesday but the team ended up holding onto the third-year runner. Martin has put up horrible numbers through seven games this season. He has rushed for just 166 yards on 58 carries. On top of that, he suffered an ankle injury against the Vikings and was seen in a walking boot.
Much of the reason Martin was thought to be expendable is because of the return of rookie tailback Charles Sims. The West Virginia product will be returning soon from his injured reserve and is expected to have a significant role when he’s back in the lineup. If Charles Sims is active for the team’s week 9 matchup against the Browns he’ll likely be eased back into action, splitting touches with Bobby Rainey. Look for Sims to become the team’s lead back soon.
Quarterback Mike Glennon had a really bad game last week against the Vikings and this week he gets the Cleveland Browns on the road. He’s only a fantasy option as a bye week fill-in. Glennon has 1,157 yards, 8 touchdowns and four interceptions so far this year.
