Week 8: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
All WR vs TB
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Derek Carr (23/37 for 200 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions or sacks taken) and Michael Crabtree (11 targets for 8/96/1 receiving) were very in synch with each other against the Jaguars last week, while Seth Roberts (nine for 4/42/0) and Amari Cooper (five for 4/29/0) also helped move the chains - those three receivers were the only Raiders over 20 yards receiving last week, though Carr hit nine players total for at least one reception. This passing attack is going strong, they just didn't need to throw a lot last week due to jumping out to a 20-6 half-time lead on Jacksonville.
The Buccaneers pass defense has been mediocre this year, currently 13th in the NFL averaging 237.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores given out vs. four interceptions and 13 sacks generated (tied for 20th- and 18th-ranked in the league, respectively). Last week, Colin Kaepernick out-mediocred the Buccaneers with 16/34 for 113 net yards, one TD and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -30 yards; two games ago Derek Anderson threw 18/28 for 278 yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions against the Buccaneers. Over the past three weeks, Tampa has averaged 15.4 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (seventh-least in the NFL); and 7.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (second-least in the NFL); with 10.5 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (seventh-most in the NFL). But remember, Tampa has faced two struggling passing attacks in a row to reach those fantasy point numbers.
This looks like a neutral matchup for Carr and company.
