Week 14: vs Indianapolis Colts

All WR vs IND

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Buccaneers passing offense has been a risk-reward group all season due to the gun-slinger play from quarterback Jameis Winston. Last week marked the first time Winston has failed to throw a touchdown in a game, but it also marked the fourth time he has thrown no interceptions--and the first time in his past four games as he had thrown eight interceptions in the previous three outings alone. It was a clear example of when doing less was more to help Tampa Bay win the game, but it certainly did not help his elite wide receivers as neither Chris Godwin nor Mike Evans managed to exceed 55 yards for the first time since Week 1. Evans leads the team in targets this season and did have some top-notch opportunities last week. However, both Evans and Godwin have seemingly traded weeks as the target and yardage leaders for this offense and will continue to serve as the top options for this Tampa Bay passing offense. The Colts passing defense has been solid overall, but highly variable for most of the season. While they rank above average as a defense in passing yards allowed per game (12th fewest with 226.9), they have given up over 295 passing yards in half of their games and fewer than 195 passing yards in the other half. In most cases, those good games against the pass came against pedestrian passing offenses (Titans x2, Broncos, Dolphins). This week's challenge is far from a pedestrian passing offense as the Buccaneers have piled on the yards against opposing secondaries. Mike Evans moves all over the field, but he should have no problem with either outside cornerback the Colts line up to cover him. Godwin should see a slightly more difficult matchup with Kenny Moore out of the slot, but Godwin still has the edge as he is very tough to cover. Turnovers have been a strong point for this defense though, as the Colts have forced at least one interception in four of their last five games--however, they will still need to keep these elite Tampa Bay receivers in check to have a chance at success in this one.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 13 vs JAX (6 / 5 / 87 / 0 rec)

Perriman of all people led the Bucs in receiving this week after being completely forgettable behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin this season. He got loose down the left sideline and made a smooth catch in stride for a 32 yard gain in the 2nd quarter. Perriman ripped off another big gain on a deep crossing route late in the 2nd quarter. Perriman's 87 yards are twice that of his next best performance this season, and he will probably remain irrelevant.

2019 Week 12 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 44 / 0 rec)

Perriman worked into the third receiver rotation behind Evans and Godwin. He got open down the right sideline for a deep pass from Winston, picking up 44 yards late in the 2nd quarter on his only target of the game.

2019 Week 10 vs ARI (4 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Perriman had a nice catch and run on a bubble screen that picked up 11 yards in the 2nd quarter. Perriman had a step on his defender, but was overthrown on a 2nd quarter deep route. He picked up a few yards on another bubble screen in the 3rd quarter. Perriman got flagged for holding in the 3rd quarter, resulting in a huge play by Chris Godwin being called back.

2019 Week 9 vs SEA (8 / 4 / 42 / 1 rec)

Perriman's first reception didn't go anywhere as he was blown up behind the line of scrimmage on a WR bubble screen from the slot. Perriman scored an opportunistic touchdown in the 2nd quarter when a deflected pass came his way in the end zone after Winston tried to force it to a tightly covered Mike Evans. Perriman made a beautiful leaping catch over his back shoulder in the 3rd quarter for an 18 yard gain, his longest play of the day.

2019 Week 8 vs TEN (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Perriman had a forgettable performance in week 8. He appeared to mistakenly go into motion on a goal line play in the 2nd quarter as he ran over the ball carrier behind the line of scrimmage and killed the play. Winston hit Perriman in the back corner of the end zone on a two point conversion attempt at the end of the 1st half, but the receiver could not get both feet down inbounds. Fellow receiver Scotty Miller continues to see more snaps in the offense, and could be pushing Perriman down the pecking order.

2019 Week 4 vs LAR (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Perriman injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter and did not return.

2019 Week 3 vs NYG (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec, 1 / 13 / 0 rush)

Perriman only drew 2 targets as Mike Evans hogged 15 of them for himself. Perriman's only catch was a beauty, as he made a diving catch on a slant route to convert 3rd and 6. Perriman also had a nice carry around left tackle on an end-around toss in the 1st quarter that picked up 13 yards.

2019 Week 2 vs CAR (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Perriman was targeted several times, but just couldn't get on the same page as Winston in this one. He had a step on his defender on a post route in the end zone late in the 3rd quarter, but Winston lofted the ball a little too far over his head.

2019 Week 1 vs SF (5 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

Perriman started on the outside with Evans and contributed quietly as the third receiver on an offense that wasn't having a great day. He had a nice conversion on 3rd and 5 in the first quarter, snagging an out route and tapping his feet on the way out of bounds. He snagged another short curl route later in the 3rd quarter.
