Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Ryan has quietly delivered a fairly low-floor, low-ceiling 2017 campaign, as he's surpassed 20 fantasy points just twice this season. The Bucs have allowed the most passing yards of any team this season, and Ryan did throw for 317 yards against them back in Week 12. But at this point, Ryan is coming off of two awful fantasy games in a row, and hasn't yet come close to delivering an elite performance in any game this season. He's just a borderline QB1 this week.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Big Ben had a 500-yard game last week and he has 14 touchdowns and just 4 picks in his last four games. Sunday's game figures to be a shootout. The Buccaneers are just 24th against fantasy quarterbacks, Ryan should have QB1 appeal on the road.
