On paper this appears to be a ugly game. In reality it will probably end up being an ugly game. The Panthers are not a good football team. The Bucs are an aging team that is struggling. Either the Bucs find what has been missing and they crush the Panthers (like they were suppose to the Steelers). Or the Bucs continue to struggle and we see few points from both teams. Either way I see this as an ugly game. The Bucs defense is to strong for the Panthers offense.

Many people were on Tom Brady and the Bucs offense last week. Is this the flop lag week and you can get them at no ownership in a great spot once again? The offensive line has struggled and perhaps Father Time has caught up to Tom. Mentally he knows this is a huge game for Tampa. If they can’t meet expectations and crush Carolina it could end up being a long year. The run game has been non existent as Leonard Fournette has become a wide receiver. Lenny has caught 25 of his past 27 targets for 3 TD’s. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are both solid options but with Fournette seeing so many targets it only hurts them. In the end if this team is going to get it done Evans and Godwin must be involved.

Both Panther quarterbacks are questionable so we don’t know if we get Baker Mayfield  or PJ Walker. Either way I don’t think it matters. I know the Bucs defense was suppose to run all over the Steelers O-Line last week and it didn’t happen. They have another dream matchup and I feel it does pay off this week. C-Mac saw 20 touches last week but realistically he needs 25+ for Carolina to even have a chance. He also might not even be a Panther come Sunday. If so I still don’t have interest in Chuba Hubbard or D’Onta Foreman. Robbie Anderson is gone but I have no interest in DJ Moore since I feel it will be a struggle for either Panther QB to pass successfully.


Tom Brady, Bucs-$6,300 The only question is can the Panthers score a few points to keep Brady going. Tom knows he has to have a statement game to keep the Bucs afloat. Good bounce back spot at what should be lower ownership. 

Tampa Bay Bucs, $3,900 Smash spot and on paper should be even better than last weeks game on paper. Sacks, turnovers and a potential touchdown are all in play. 

Leonard Fournette, Bucs-$7,700 Brady does a good job spreading the ball around making it tough for upside with his weapons. Lenny is strictly a ownership play as the price should keep the people away.

I have no interest in Carolina even at their prices. If no C-Mac you have cheap options at running back and with Anderson gone the wideouts are cheap. Saving salary is nice but I don’t see many points from these players. I feel getting 10-12 points out of them could be a struggle.
