Week 4: vs Denver Broncos

All TE vs DEN

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Jameis Winston had a 'boom' outing against the Rams, throwing for an enormous 36/58 yielding 405 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, while taking two sacks for -16 yards. Eight different players caught at least one pass, led by Mike Evans (13 targets for 10/132/1 receiving) and Adam Humphries (12 for 9/100/0) - entrenched starting tight end Cameron Brate celebrated the release of rival Austin Seferian-Jenkins with 10 targets for 5/46/2 receiving, while Charles Sims handled eight for 6/69/0 receiving. Vincent Jackson helped out some (six targets for 3/37/0 receiving) but seems to have fallen behind Evans and Humphries in the pecking order at wide receiver. The Buccaneers come into Week Four with the wind in their sails in this phase of the game. The Broncos' pass defense ranks fourth in the NFL averaging 178.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with two passing scores given away vs. three interceptions and 12 sacks generated (second-most sacks in the NFL through three games). Over the first three weeks of the season, Denver has averaged 17.5 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (11th-least in the NFL); and 14 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (third-least); with 5.5 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (13th-leaast). Most recently, Andy Dalton managed 21/31 for 189 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -17 yards. This is one of the best pass defenses in the NFL folks. This is a tough matchup for Winston and company, even though they are in the friendly confines of Raymond James Stadium this weekend.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs LA (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Myers caught an out route for nice gain and a first down in the 3rd quarter, but the play was negated by a holding penalty. Later in the 4th quarter, he caught a short pass for a gain of 7 to convert 3rd and short, extending a drive as the Bucs attempted a comeback.

2016 Week 1 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 4 / 1 rec)

Myers continued his duties as an in-line blocker and occasional touchdown vulture. He was only targeted once on the day, a 4 yard touchdown reception in the 2nd quarter. Adam Humphries set the Bucs up inside the 10 yard line with a beautiful bubble screen, and Tampa lined up in a goal line set with Myers blocking inline. After running a halfback dive, Tampa faked a play action and rolled Winston out right. Myers detached from the line and was wide open over the goal line for an easy score.
