Buccaneers @ Bears

Will the ageless Tom Brady take down the greatest backup quarterback to ever live? Will Ronald Jones finally claim his spot as the unquestioned number one running back on his team? We will find out sooner rather than later! It feels like its going to be a gritty game between the two vets let’s see if TB12 can stay hot after a 5 TD performance and if Foles can keep the Bears from suffering a second straight loss.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Overview:

The darling of the offseason was off to a slow start after looking sluggish and not at all high flying against the Saints in week 1. However, they have bounced back from that with 3 straight wins all while battling several injuries to their offense. Up until last week, Brady was very so-so as far as fantasy is concerned. He was averaging well under 300 yards passing per game, 2 TDs, and a mere 17.7 fantasy points per game. Not exactly the Tom Brady we’ve all known for the past 20 years, but hey the dude is 43. I think he gets a pass on a slow start to the season. Let’s see what the injury-riddled Bucs have in store for us this week.
