Week 12: at Chicago Bears
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Josh McCown and Michael Evans have become a fantasy phenomenon over the past two weeks, with a monster 7/209/2 receiving effort from Evans last week (nine targets) after a nice game vs. Atlanta two games ago (nine for 7/125/1). McCown ended last Sunday with 15/23 for 288 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, finding Vincent Jackson (four targets for 3/43/0) for most of the balance of his passing yardage. It ain't complex, but the Buccaneers' passing attack is coming to life with Evans heavily featured in this phase of the game.
The Bears' pass D has given up the second-most passing scores this year, with 24 surrendered, vs. just nine interceptions (tied for 15th in the NFL) and 22 sacks (tied for 17th) generated. They are 25th in the NFL averaging 256.4 net passing yards allowed per game - two weeks ago Aaron Rodgers and Mike Flynn combined for 19/32 yielding 319 net yards passing, six TDs and zero interceptions or sacks taken, while last week rookie Teddy Bridgewater had a more modest 18/28 for 147 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for - 11 yards.
Most weeks, the Bears' generosity in this phase of the game outweighs the tolls they extract from opposing passers - advantage, Tampa Bay.
