Week 14 Matchup Infoat Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Neutral matchup) - E.J. Manuel hit Fred Jackson (four targets for 4/36/1) for the lone passing TD last week, after slinging TDs to Marquise Goodwin (nine for 6/81/1) and T.J. Graham (four for 2/71/1) two games ago - he's thrown 38/60 for 455 yards, three TDs and zero interceptions during that time span and added 4/3/1 rushing to his totals last week. The Bills' young signal caller has been steadily productive but not outstanding for his fantasy owners of late. Scott Chandler (six for 4/63/0) and Stevie Johnson (eight for 5/55/0) were the other lead receivers for Manuel last week. He's got plenty of targets to throw at, but the Bills keep a balance with their rushing attack as it is so good (31/195/3 rushing for Buffalo last week).
The Buccaneers' pass defense has generated six interceptions over the past two games, with 18/29 for 263 yards, two TDs and two interceptions given up to the Panthers last week and 26/46 for 286 yards, three TDs and four interceptions allowed to Matthew Stafford two games ago. To date, the Buccaneers' secondary ranks 18th in the league averaging 246.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with 24 passing TDs given up vs. 17 interceptions (first in the NFL) and 24 sacks (28th) generated to date. They've really been on a tear in the interceptions department over the last couple of contests.
Manuel has a neutral matchup her, and he'll need to watch out for the ball-hawking Buccaneers' defenders during this contest.
