Peyton Barber Unable To Get Going In Week 6

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber was unable to get anything going against the Panthers in Week 6, gaining just 28 yards on 10 carries on the day.

Ronald Jones II Underwhelms In Week 6

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II was unable to get going Sunday, gaining only 10 yards on four carries, but did score a touchdown to save his day.

Peyton Barber Not An Appealing Week 6 Option

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber will have an easier matchup in Week 6 than he did in Week 5 with the Carolina Panthers on deck, but fantasy owners may want to look around for other options.

Ronald Jones II Could Bounce Back In Week 6

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II disappointed fantasy owners in Week 5 and will look to get back on track against a porous Carolina Panthers run defense in Week 6.

Jameis Winston A QB2 In Tough Week 6 Matchup

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston put up a lackluster performance in Week 5, and with the Carolina Panthers on deck for Week 6, another middling effort could be on the horizon.

Marvin Jones A Flex Option For Week 6

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones has a tough matchup on his hands in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers.

Kerryon Johnson Has Chance To Shine In Week 6

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson will look to take advantage of a weak Green Bay Packers run defense on Monday night in Week 6.

Matthew Stafford A QB2 In Tough Week 6 Matchup

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has a tough Week 6 matchup at Lambeau Field on Monday night coming off the Lions bye.

Sam Darnold Cleared, Will Return Sunday

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (mono) has officially been medically cleared to return to the field and will start in Week 6 when the Jets take on the Cowboys.

Peyton Barber Scores In Bucs Loss

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber didn't necessarily disappoint fantasy owners Sunday, however, that may be due to the fact that expectations were low for the Bucs running back.

Chris Godwin Has Huge Performance In Bucs Loss

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin rewarded fantasy owners in a big way Sunday, catching 7-of-9 targets for 125 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs loss to the Saints.

Mike Evans Doesn't Record A Catch In Week 5

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans heavily disappointed fantasy owners in Week 5, catching zero balls on just three targets.

Jameis Winston Salvages Day With Late Touchdown

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston had fantasy owners excited after two straight monster weeks, but turned in an average performance in the Bucs loss to the Saints Sunday.

Jameis Winston A Solid Week 5 Option

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is in a good position in Week 5 to continue putting up solid fantasy numbers with the New Orleans Saints on deck.

Peyton Barber Not A Recommended Week 5 Start

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber looked solid in his Week 2 performance but has otherwise been outshined by fellow backfield mate Ronald Jones II.

Ronald Jones II Gaining Traction Heading Into Week 5

Ronald Jones II A Very Risky Week 4 Option

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II is coming off his most productive game of the season in Week 3, but expecting him to build off of that performance may be too much of an ask. Jones and the Bucs travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams in Week 4, and while... Read More

Peyton Barber Not A Recommended Week 4 Option

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber doesn't necessarily have the toughest Week 4 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams on deck, but fantasy owners should steer clear nonetheless.

Marvin Jones A High-End WR3 In Week 4 Matchup

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones has a good chance to build off a solid Week 3 performance with the Kansas City Chiefs coming to town in Week 4. While expecting Jones to lead the Lions in targets, receptions and yards like he did in Week 3 is a bit of a stretch, but the... Read More

Kerryon Johnson A High-End RB2 In Week 4

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson could be in line for a big Week 4 performance against the Kansas City Chiefs. Johnson had a tough time running the ball against a solid Eagles run defense in Week 3 but should be able to find more room this week against a Chiefs Defense that allows 6.2... Read More

Kenny Golladay Poised To Bounce Back In Week 4

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay is in an excellent position to bounce back from a disappointing Week 3 performance with the Kansas City Chiefs coming to town.

T.J. Hockenson Not A Trustworthy Week 4 Option

Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson will look to get back on track in Week 4 after two consecutive one-catch weeks. Hockenson lit up the fantasy world after a 131-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 1, but has totaled just two catches for eight yards since then. The No. 8 pick in the 2019 NFL draft...

Matthew Stafford A Solid Week 4 Option

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has a chance to rebound from a mediocre start in Week 3 with a potentially high-scoring game against the Kansas City Chiefs on deck.

Peyton Barber Unable To Build Off Week 2 Performance

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber touched the ball as many times as backfield mate Ronald Jones II but was unable to take the reigns, running the ball 13 times for 48 yards while adding just seven yards through the air in a Week 3 loss against the Giants.
