From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 28): Cam Newton is dealing, and Ginn is his favorite deep target. You could do worse for a desperation play this week against Tampa.

Week 4: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All WR vs TB

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Cam Newton has found ways to make the passing attack work despite the loss of Kelvin - Ted Ginn Jr. is leading the way at wide receiver with 22 targets for 10/188/1 so far this season, and Greg Olsen finally snapped out of his stupor to post an outstanding 8/134/2 receiving on 11 targets vs. New Orleans (Ginn had six targets for 4/93/0 during that game). It ain't fancy, but the Panthers are 3-0. Devin Funchess has yet to make his presence felt in fantasy circles, but he did see four targets vs. New Orleans (he only converted 1/14/0, though, as he continues along the rookie learning curve at wide receiver). The Buccaneers' pass D is ranked ninth in the NFL in terms of yards allowed per game - 210.3 - but part of the low yards allowed average is because teams are electing to attack their 30th-ranked rush D. Tampa has allowed three times as many passing scores (six) as interceptions generated (two, tied for 17th in the NFL), and they have seven sacks so far (tied for eighth in the NFL). Last week, Ryan Mallett threw 24/39 for 227 net yards passing, one TD and one interception against the Buccaneers. Drew Brees hit them for 24/38 yielding 255 yards passing, one TD and one interception two weeks ago. This looks like a neutral matchup between so-so units to us.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 3 vs NO (6 / 4 / 93 / 0 rec)

The majority of Ted Ginn's targets were deep, and although he and Newton failed to hook up on a pair of them, Ginn nonetheless made his impact felt. His first catch was an impressive show of toughness as he absorbed a punishing hit in the small of the back just as he made the grab, but managed to hold on. Ginn hauled in a beautiful 55-yard bomb from Newton after gaining a step on the cornerback in coverage and turning on the afterburners. A subsequent deep target saw Ginn lose the football in mid-flight, but the signs are encouraging that this connection will continue to thrive.

2015 Week 2 vs HOU (9 / 4 / 41 / 1 rec)

Clearly the deep threat of the offense, Newton tried to find his speedster early on a deep pass down the left sideline but the pass was thrown too far to the outside and went out of bounds. Houston's respect for Ginn's speed meant he had room on the outside for a pair of short receptions in the second quarter. Ginn showed poor technique on a key third down drop, attempting to let the football into his body instead of attacking it with his hands. He put the drop behind him with his touchdown, however, executing a perfect double move to gain separation and running underneath Newton's pass.

2015 Week 1 vs JAX (7 / 2 / 54 / 0 rec)

Ted Ginn Jr. was named a starter last week and his performance gave no sign that he will be surrendering the job any time soon. Ginn was quick out of his breaks and seemed to be in sync with Cam Newton on the shorter, timing patterns. He has lost none of his world class speed, as he showed on a play that should have resulted in a touchdown. Ginn broke free down the right sideline after the Jaguars defensive backs got their wires crossed. With no defender within 10 yards of him, however, Ginn dropped a catchable, albeit not ideal, pass from Newton. A walk-in touchdown would have ensued. Ginn was the target of a quick slant pass from Newton in the red zone, but the football was delivered with too much zip and Ginn couldn't hold on. Ginn's most impressive play came on a crossing pattern. Breaking quickly away from cornerback Davon House, Ginn streaked across the field and Newton was able to find him with a precision pass.
