- Quarterback Jameis Winston bounced back from a horrible debut with 207 yards passing and a touchdown along with 23 yards on the ground and another touchdown. This was the kind of performance we expected and it should solidify his status as a QB2 in dynasty rankings.
- In IDP news, defensive end Jacquies Smith had a big day with three sacks giving him four on the season. The 25-year old has bounced around the league but may have found a place in Tampa and could end up in the DL2 conversation if he keeps these numbers up.
- Quarterback Drew Brees turned in another sub-par performance with only 255 yards and a touchdown and an interception. It’s fair to wonder if his physical regression plus the loss of some key weapons has had its effect. He’s in the big group of low-end QB1s in dynasty rankings but you might want to get out while you still can.
- Another weak performance for running back Mark Ingram with 53 yards on just 16 carries but he did have a touchdown. It’s interesting to remember the hype behind Ingram in the off-season but he can’t be considered more than a borderline RB2/3 in dynasty rankings.
