The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense put together a strong performance in a Week 2 rout of the Falcons. Tampa Bay's unit intercepted Matt Ryan three times, returning two of them for scores. Safety Mike Edwards was responsible for both touchdowns. Carlton Davis and Lavonte David were the leading tacklers for the defense, with Ndamukong Suh recording the lone sack. Tampa Bay's defense looks every bit as fierce as last year's unit and should have more performances like this one up their sleeve for fantasy managers.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski caught four of five targets for 39 receiving yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 48-25 win over Atlanta. Gronkowski was again a red zone menace, hauling in two scores, one from 20 yards out and another for one yard. That's two games with two touchdowns now for the veteran tight end, as his connection with Tom Brady is perhaps as good as ever. Expecting games like this from Gronkowski every week would be foolhardy, especially with so many mouths to feed in the Buccaneers' offense- though he appears headed for the first double-digit touchdown campaign of his career since the 2015 season.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown caught just one pass for 17 yards in a 48-25 win over the Falcons. Brown was a standout performer in Week 1 but fell back down to earth in a favorable matchup against the Falcons, as fellow wideouts Mike Evans and Chris Godwin gobbled up much of the production from Tom Brady. With so many mouths to feed in the offense, there will be weeks where Brown fails to produce, but his talent and connection with Brady should keep such weeks to a minimum. Fantasy managers can consider Brown as a starting option in a Week 3 game against the Rams, one that could turn into a high-scoring affair.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin corralled four of five targets for 62 yards and a score in Sunday's rout of the Falcons. Godwin tied for second on the team in targets with tight endRob Gronkowski and found the end zone for the second straight week, making a nice grab in the back of the end zone for the 12-yard touchdown reception. After two weeks of play, the 25-year-old Godwin leads the team in targets with 19. He was Tom Brady's most targeted receiver on a per-game basis last season, something that appears likely to continue in 2021. Godwin's consistent target share makes him a safe WR2 each week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans caught five of nine targets for 75 receiving yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 48-25 win over the Falcons. Evans disappointed with just a 24-yard effort in Week 1, though he quickly put that performance in the rearview on the team's opening drive, exceeding his yardage total from the past week on his first two receptions. The big-bodied wideout later scored twice in the red zone, further adding to his lucrative day- which also saw him pace the team in targets. Evans should continue to be a touchdown magnet in what looks like yet another high-octane Buccaneers offense in 2021. A potential shootout with the Rams awaits in Week 3.
