Week 4: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All TE vs TB

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Trevor Siemian started to perk up the Denver passing game last week, finding both Emmanuel Sanders (13 targets for 9/117/2) and Demaryius Thomas (seven for 6/100/1) for over 100 yards receiving in Cincinnati. Siemian also hooked up with John Phillips (four targets for 2/9/1) for a score on the way to an outstanding 23/35 for 303 yards passing, four TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -9 yards. We'll see if Siemian can string together two strong games as the Broncos travel to Tampa Bay this weekend. The Buccaneers lost in a shootout against the Rams last weekend 32-37, allowing 14/26 for 183 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception with one sack for -7 yards of Case Keenum. So far this year, Tampa Bay averages 272.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with seven passing scores given out vs. a mere one intercception recorded - the team has generated a mediocre five sacks so far. Over the first three weeks of the season, Tampa Bay has averaged 23.4 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (seventh-most in the NFL); and 31.8 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (second-most); with 3.2 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (eighth-least in the league). Siemian and company have a good matchup to work with here despite being on the road to the Buccaneers' house.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs CIN (4 / 2 / 9 / 1 rec)

Phillips drew his first target at the end of the 1st quarter, a nicely thrown pass down the seam that was just a little too far out of his reach. Phillips hauled in a short touchdown pass late in the 4th quarter. QB Siemian faked a play action to CJ Anderson while Phillips released from the line and eased to the back of the end zone, bringing the ball down in traffic for the score.

Broncos | John Phillips to start at TE (Sat Sep 24, 05:59 PM) - Denver Broncos TE John Phillips will start at tight end in Week 3 in place of TE Virgil Green (calf). TE Jeff Heuerman will also be active for the game.

Our View: Phillips is a big-bodied blocker with little fantasy value. Jeff Heuerman is expected to be the primary pass-catching TE with Green out.
