Week 3: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All WR vs TB

FBG says: Great matchup. Ben Roethlisberger has posted two monster fantasy lines, but neither has been particularly efficient. He's relied heavily upon after-the-catch production, namely from JuJu Smith-Schuster and, shockingly, Jesse James. When working down the field, Roethlisberger has been scattershot, to the say the least. Week 1 featured a bevy of bad interceptions, and in Week 2 he completed only 2 passes to wideouts for more than 14 yards. Still, there's plenty of reason to expect more efficiency going forward. Antonio Brown was held largely in check by bracket Chiefs coverage, but if stopping him were that simple, it would've been discovered by now. And Smith-Schuster, still just 21 years old, is developing into an across-the-field dominator week by week. A name to watch going forward will be rookie James Washington, who's officially bumped Justin Hunter out of a uniform. Washington didn't draw much Week 2 attention, but he played 60 snaps and should absorb Hunter's occasional deep-ball attempts, with much more upside. The Tampa Bay pass defense is inching forward, slowly but surely. Neither Drew Brees nor Nick Foles has had as easy a time producing as their stat lines have suggested. But it's still a black-hole unit from a fantasy matchup perspective - Brees and Foles racked up a combined 773 yards and 4 touchdowns. With pass rushers and cover men alike battling injury, they're severely undermanned and short on talent anyway. Top cornerback Brent Grimes has yet to suit up, and rookie Carlton Davis has been shaky in his place. And the safeties remain run-support and prevent guys at heart; neither makes many plays on balls on the air. As long as they're lacking depth and prevent-minded, they'll still be a unit to attack on all levels of the field. It's fair to point out that both games have been Buccaneer-led throughout, and that they've faced two barrages of nonstop passing during comeback attempts. But it's hard to find the silver lining in this shaky crew.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs KC (5 / 1 / 14 / 1 rec)

With Justin Hunter getting a game day inactive (coach's decision) Washington drew the start in a three wide receiver set. Washington was targeted early and often in this match-up. On the first drive alone Washington had three targets, two of them being deep. Washington was splitting time with Ryan Switzer, who saw time in the slot and also at running back. Washington's touchdown reception came on a controversial pass where Ben Roethlisberger appeared to cross the line of scrimmage before the pass left his hand. Even so, the play was ruled a touchdown on the field.
