Week 12: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
All WR vs TB
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Matt Hasselbeck did enough to defeat Atlanta last week - 23/32 for 213 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions thrown, with both TDs going to Ahmad Bradshaw (four targets for 4/20/2 receiving). Donte Moncrief led the team in targets with eight for 5/41/0 receiving, while Frank Gore led in yards with five for 5/46/0. T.Y. Hilton, usually a favorite of Hasselbeck, had just four targets for 2/21/0 receiving on the day.
The Buccaneers' pass D is ranked 13th in the NFL averaging 234.6 net yards allowed per game, with 21 passing scores given out vs. 10 interceptions (tied for 11th in the NFL) and 23 sacks (tied for 15th) generated this year. Last week, Mark Sanchez threw 26/41 for 247 net yards, two TDs and three interceptions while taking three sacks for -14 yards from Tampa. Dallas threw 19/30 for 174 net yards, zero TDs and one interception with three sacks taken for -12 yards from Tampa two games ago. Over the past four weeks, the Buccaneers have allowed the ninth-least fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks (17.6); the tenth-least fantasy points to opposing wideouts (18.7), and were 16th vs. opposing tight ends (8.9 fantasy points allowed per game on average).
This looks like a tougher-than-usual matchup for Hasselbeck and company.
