Buccaneers D/ST recovers two fumbles Sunday

The Buccaneers D/ST logged three sacks and recovered two fumbles while allowing just nine points in a win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Tampa Bay's defense was lockdown on Sunday, holding the Saints to less than ten points and getting a couple of key takeaways that helped them to put away the game. They may have benefited from QB Derek Carr playing through a shoulder injury, but they made the most of the situation and ended with a nice day. They have a lot of veteran talent and are a capable starting option in favorable matchups for the rest of the season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers D/ST stellar in Week 2

The Bucs' D/ST was stellar in a Week 2 win, snagging two interceptions, logging six sacks, and scoring one touchdown against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Tampa Bay's defense looked great in Week 2. They had QB Justin Fields bottled up all day and forced him to throw two picks, one of which they returned for a touchdown. This could've been the product of a favorable matchup, but they still looked good and can be started in good matchups moving forward.

Buccaneers D/ST forces three turnovers Sunday

The Buccaneers' D/ST logged two sacks, two fumble recoveries, and an interception while allowing 24 points in Sunday's win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Carolina's offense is among the league's worst this season, and Tampa Bay's defense had an up-and-down game against them. They made some game-changing plays, but they also allowed them to record 400 total yards of offense. They've had an up-and-down year as a unit, and the team will need them to step up if they want to have a deep playoff push this year.

Buccaneers D/ST holds Arizona to 16 points Sunday

The Buccaneers' D/ST logged one sack and one interception while allowing 16 points in Sundays win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Tampa Bay's defense was good on Sunday, allowing just 16 points on the course of the night. They were facing Arizona's third-string quarterback in Trace McSorley, but they capitalized on the opportunity and helped carry the team to a win. They've been up-and-down this season, and they draw a favorable matchup on paper against the Carolina Panthers in Week 17.
