Falcons vs Buccaneers
Both teams have uphill playoff climbs, but this is one of the most intriguing games from a fantasy football perspective, with numerous players capable of going off.
We’ll take a deeper dive into that game below in addition to providing some Week 6 rankings for quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end. the Falcons will be playing again, hoping to reverse a three game skid that has left them shipwrecked on the rocks of despair or somesuch. They’ll attempt to do so, fittingly enough, against the Buccaneers.
It is genuinely anyone’s guess whether the Falcons can win, because it’s going to require either a truly superlative offensive performance, a more solid defensive one, or both. We just haven’t seen much to feel good about for Atlanta over the last month aside from the offense,
I like to think they can win—this and the Giants game are two of the better matchups the rest of the way—but we’ll see. Head into this game with modest expectations and hope for the best.
Falcons vs. Buccaneers key info
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers head into Atlanta to face the division rival Falcons, and it looks to be a shootout for the ages.
From a fantasy perspective, this game could be the reason for a victory. With a pair of talented quarterbacks and stellar receiving corps on both sides, there’s plenty of players who should be in fantasy owners lineups.
For the Buccaneers, in particular, their receivers are in for a big day. With Atlanta’s banged up defense, both Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson should get plenty of looks.
Owners should feel positive about Winston as well, even if it’s his first start since last season. The former number one overall pick shouldn’t have much trouble pushing the ball downfield this week.
