News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Nov 24): Lane left the game against the Bears due to a right ankle injury of unspecified severity - he'll be evaluated further on Monday. After the game, head coach Lovie Smith said that the issue is a 'serious' right ankle injury.
General News (Tue Nov 25): was to have surgery on his broken right ankle Tuesday, Nov. 25, and he'll miss the rest of the year.
Week 13: vs Cincinnati Bengals
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Tampa's running back stable is a fantasy nightmare of many cooks in one kitchen. Last week, Doug Martin nominally started (11/27/0 rushing with 1/4/0 receiving), but nobody in the stable got over 40 yards combined (Charles Sims had 6/22/0 rushing and 2/11/0 receiving; Bobby Rainy posted 1/3/0 rushing with 4/18/0 receiving). This is a situation to stay far away from if you are a fantasy owner. The Bengals' rush D has allowed 19/64/0 to the Texans and 26/75/0 to the Saints over the last two weeks - after a rash of injuries caused problems early in the second half of the season, the Bengals have regrouped and returned to stout defense during November. Right now they are playing stout rush D, folks. This is a bad matchup for the Buccaneers' bevy of backs.
