Week 3: vs New York Giants

All TE vs NYG

FBG says: Great matchup. It wouldn't be out of line to call Jameis Winston's Week 2 a bounce-back showing. After a horrid opener, Winston looked serviceable against the Panthers, completing 64% of his throws and avoiding turnovers. Week to week, Winston boasts high upside in Arians' vertical, playmaking attack. He has a wealth of talent at his disposal, led by Mike Evans, who's opened the year slowly but always presents a mismatch. Thus far, though, Winston's strongest connection has been with Chris Godwin, who's already racked up 174 yards and found the end zone in both games. Godwin works primarily out of the slot, which was heavily utilized back when Bruce Arians was coaching the Cardinals. His blend of size and athleticism makes him a great target both on quick-hitters and on fade routes in the end zone. Perhaps the most head-scratching aspect of the Tampa Bay pass game thus far has been O.J. Howard's disappearing act (32 yards through 2 games). Arians has never been accused of using his tight ends excessively, but he's also never had one as dynamic down the field as Howard. The youngster will need to trim his mistakes - drops, fumbles, etc. - if he's going to carve out a meaty role. Cameron Brate, who had two touchdowns called back in Week 1, still looms as a vulture. Little has changed from the Giants' poor 2018 in pass defense; if anything, things have gotten noticeably worse. Last Sunday, this unit reached a new low, allowing Buffalo's Josh Allen his best day as an NFL starter. The biggest problems are at cornerback, where Janoris Jenkins is no longer a shutdown guy and Eli Apple has yet to be adequately replaced. Rookie DeAndre Baker has been a massive liability through his first two games, biting on fakes and losing sight of his man far too often. Antonio Hamilton hasn't been much better, rounding out one of football's most beatable trios. Behind them, 35-year-old Antoine Bethea no longer offers much support down the field. With such poor coverage in place and such a ho-hum pass rush up front, this should remain one of fantasy's tastiest matchups. No. 1 options like Mike Evans need no longer fear Jenkins, and rising talents like Chris Godwin face little resistance from anyone else.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs CAR (2 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

Brate caught an out route for a short gain before being pushed out of bounds in the 1st. Brate had one more tough catch in traffic to convert 3rd and 4 late in the 1st half.

2019 Week 1 vs SF (2 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Brate scored on a beautifully executed tight end screen from Winston in the 2nd quarter, faking a block and running untouched in to the end zone, but the play was called back for a holding penalty on the offensive line. Brate had yet another touchdown nullified by a holding penalty(both were on Demar Dotson) later in the same drive after he made an amazing toe-tapping catch over two defenders in the back of the end zone. Brate finished the day with two official catches for just 8 yards.
