Hold Your Horses on the Hype: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Nickolas Loza | May 22nd, 2020 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason have improved by a wide margin, which they needed to do after a disappointing season with a record of 7-9 under Head Coach Bruce Arians. They went out and released their troubled Quarterback Jameis Winston, who despite throwing for 5,000 yards and 30 touchdowns, had one of the weirdest seasons ever. Winston became the first player in NFL history to throw for 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions, truly a statistical anomaly.

Brady Podloski, Frank Ammirante, Sam Schneider, Joey Ricotta  | May 9th, 2020

The NFC South is arguably one of the most offensive driven divisions. As well, each offense has improved over the offseason, but the biggest addition is Tom Brady. With Brady and other quarterbacks like Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, and Teddy Bridgewater, the division has no clear winner.

With that said, this is an eight-part series where our Scorecrow NFL Analysts do an early prediction of the wins and losses of each team.

Byron Jewell | April 4th, 2020 

For the first time in twenty years, Tom Brady will be playing for a team other than the New England Patriots. In what was the biggest move in franchise history, if not NFL history, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have seemingly decided to go “all-in” when they signed the 42-year-old quarterback on a two-year $50 million dollar deal back in March.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2019 Season Recap

Mike Fanelli | January 9th, 2020 

Entering the 2019 season the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had hopes of making the playoffs. In reality, they were never playoff contenders. The season was highlighted by three things. One, Jameis Winston because the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 30 plus touchdowns and 30 plus interceptions. Ironically, the Buccaneers’ season ended in overtime against the Atlanta Falcons on a pick-six that gave Winston his 30th interception of the season. Two, Chris Godwin‘s breakout season. Despite missing 2.5 games because of a hamstring injury, Godwin finished third in the league with 1,333 receiving yards. The duo of him and Mike Evans might be the best in the league. Three, Shaquil Barrett had a breakout season, leading the league with 19.5 sacks. Entering the season he had 14 career sacks.

Brandon Braasch | December 20th, 2019 

This is a special slate as it is the only Saturday this season with NFL regular season games on. There are three games on this slate. The first game is going to be an offensive masterpiece with the Houston Texans going into Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers. The second game is going to be a defensive masterpiece with the Buffalo Bills heading into Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots. Last but not least the third game is an NFC West battle between the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers. Below are my top players and game predictions for all three games.

Detroit Lions Week 14 Recap- Skoled

Tom Greene | December 9th, 2019

Lions fans were served elimination from the playoffs at the Thanksgiving Dinner table last week. Unfortunately, this week, they were served seconds. A 20-7 loss in the first game all season in which they did not have a lead brings the already-eliminated team to 3-9-1. As for Minnesota, they got a much-needed victory for their playoff hopes and improve to 9-4 on the year.

As always, let’s look at the three takeaways from this Lions loss. “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.”

Detroit Lions Week 13 Recap- Elimination.

Tom Greene | December 2nd, 2019

Yes, you read that right. At 3-8-1, the Detroit Lions have become the first team in the NFC to be eliminated from playoff contention. This brings another two questions to my plate that came a lot sooner than I’d anticipated. “What’s the point of the last four games? What’s the point of these recaps now?”

Those questions will be answered in the three recap points. Simply put, the Lions went from a 2-0-1 team that showed some promise to a 3-8-1 team that’s looking for its identity again. Whether you’re a player, coach, front office member or fan, going 1-8 in a nine-game stretch is never fun. Let’s look at the three points.

Week Nine NFL Picks: Spreads, Props and More

Mike Fanelli & Givanni Damico | November 2nd, 2019

The 2019 NFL trade deadline was Tuesday but it was a quiet day as only Aqib Talib was traded in a salary dump move by the Los Angeles Rams. However, on Monday, the Miami Dolphins traded Kenyan Drake to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional sixth-round draft pick. On Thursday night, Drake had his best game of the year, totaling 19 touches for 162 scrimmage yards. The San Francisco 49ers won the game 28-25 but the game was much closer than the 9.5 or 10 points the road team was favored by.

The Walsh Way – Week 5 DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | October 5th, 2019

GAME THEORY

All my plays are based on DraftKings pricing. Its also important to note that when I list a player as a fade, I do not mean I will have 0% of them, but I will be way under the field as far as exposure goes, and likely will not play them on single entry lineups. Continue reading

2019 Fantasy Football Week Four: IDP Report

Joshua Abbe | September 25th, 2019 

Well, it happened again and if you had Saquon Barkley like me, you know the agony of his injury. If you are in an IDP league though, you know that two individuals from last week’s report should’ve carried you to a win! I know it did for me and that is the ups and downs of being in IDP leagues. Those defensive players can help carry you to a win or they can be duds and not help at all.

Raul Vazquez | September 24th, 2019

The Walsh Way – Week 3 DFS Values

Kevin Walsh | September 20th, 2019 

Well, week two was a bit of a disaster. The big Raiders trap was set, and we all fell for it. Granted Tyrell Williams did score and Darren Waller didn’t kill you, when you have 40-50% of them when you enter 150 lineups, it’s going to cause some issues.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Carolina Panthers

Mike Fanelli | September 12th, 2019

Last week’s Thursday Night Game was a boring game, in large part due to two impressive defenses and two underwhelming offenses. The matchup this week should be more entertaining between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Carolina Panthers. Entering week two, several fantasy storylines have changed due to injuries and underwhelming opening week performances. One of those players was Jameis Winston, who had a horrible game against the San Francisco 49ers, throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble. Will he bounce back in week two? Continue reading

Week one is complete and it definitely did not disappoint. Week two gets started with a divisional battle between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs the Carolina Panthers.

Let’s take a look at this week’s DFS matchups on FanDuel and DraftKings.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Draft Review

Dale Money | May 1st, 2019

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were focused on defense early in the 2019 NFL Draft, picking a potential top linebacker in this class, in Devin White and then grabbing a talented corner out of Central Michigan, Sean Bunting. Two sensible picks that shouldn’t backfire. Following the Bunting selection, they grabbed two more defensive backs, including another corner, as well as a safety. Given Tampa Bay’s pass defense was a real mess last season, surrendering 259.4 yards per game to rank 25th in the NFL. Deciding to go defensive back early and often, they did a good job of focusing on that deficiency and trying to fix it. Continue reading
