Another not so great performance for the All Bucs Squad. The team failed to meet their projected points for the second time this season, scoring only 102.56 points.
However, I did manage to start all the right people, there wasn’t a single point scored by the All Bucs Squad’s bench. Not so sure this is a good thing though.
With the game being a low scoring contest played in the rain and with lots of emotions flowing the Bucs didn’t score a lot of fantasy points against the New England Patriots in this week’s matchup.
- Total Points: 16.8
- Leonard Fournette may have been the only bright spot in the game. He was only 9 yards shy from being the team’s first 100 yard rusher on the season.
- Total Points: 14.5
- Mike Evans also played well, catching 7 passes for 75 yards, but no TDs. Good news, Evans is now 75 yards closer to another 1,000 yard season to hopefully extend the record to 8 consecutive seasons.
- Total Points: 13.3
- AB, who was back from COVID, started right where he left off and saw 11 targets in this one. He caught 7 for 63 yards, but again no TDs.
- Total Points: 14.0
- Ryan Succop was a big part in winning the actual game for the actual Buccaneers. He hit 4 of 5 field goals (which really he should have hit all 5, and he knew it) and one extra point.
- Total Points: 11.0
- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense played great in this game, they had an interception, a fumble recovery, 4 sacks and held the Patriots to only 17 points and held them under 300 total yards.
This week’s matchup had a fantasy boomer in Deebo Samuel (35.7 points) and some solid performances by Kyler Murray (22.62 points), Kareem Hunt (16.6 points), DK Metcalf (16.5 points), and Hunter Renfrow (16.5 points). The All Bucs Squad loss 129.42 to 102.56.
But really, if Tom Brady would have just threw 3 TD passes to any of the starters the All Bucs Squad would have come away with the W. That would have accounted for 30 additional points. Going into the game Brady was averaging 3 TD passes a game, so this wasn’t that unlikely of a possibility. But at least Tom Brady has now beaten all 32 NFL teams in his career.
Next week the Buccaneers face off against the Miami Dolphins at home, so I expect a better performance fantasy football wise. The real Bucs at least still got the W, go Bucs!
Overall Record: 2-2
