Week 7: at San Francisco 49ers

All TE vs SF

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Tampa emphasized the running game in Carolina (37 carries vs. 30 passing attempts for Jameis Winston), and came away with a narrow 17-14 win for their efforts. Winston managed 18/30 for 219 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions with two sacks taken for -17 yards during the contest. As always, he preferred Mike Evans over all others, with 12 targets for 6/89/1 receiving flowing to Evans - Cameron Brate (three for 1/38/0) and Vincent Jackson (five for 3/36/0) chipped in, as did running back Jacquizz Rodgers (six for 5/28/0), but nobody other than Evans scored enough fantasy points as a receiver to excite fantasy owners. Jackson has probably played his last down this year though - he was sent to IR with an ACL injury on Tuesday, October 18, which will raise the profile of Adam Humphries (40 targets for 27/260/1 receiving so far this season) as he joins the starting lineup across from Evans. The San Francisco pass defense gave up 17/28 for 179 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions to the Bills' Tyrod Taylor last week, sacking him three times for a net of zero yards lost. The 49ers' pass defense allowed just 11/28 for 116 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions to Drew Stanton two weeks ago (with one sack for -8 yards) - while the yardage totals have been modest, the 49ers pass defense has allowed two passing scores per game over the last two contests. From Week Four to Week Six of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), San Francisco has averaged 19.8 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (17th in the NFL); and 24 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (17th); with 4.4 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (fifth-least in the league). This is a so-so pass defense as of Week Seven, as you can see. For the season, they average 215.5 net passing yards allowed per game (seventh in the NFL), but have coughed up 12 passing scores vs. four interceptions (tied for 14th in the NFL) and 11 interceptions (tied for 19th) generated. This looks like a neutral matchup for Winston and company.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 5 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Myers caught his only target of the night for 12 yards on an out route in the 2nd quarter. He did see a lot of snaps as a blocker from the tight end and also fullback position as the Bucs made a strong effort to establish the run game.

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.
