Tampa Bay Buccaneers

FanDuel Flashback: Week 16

The Buccaneers late-season surge gives both Tampa Bay fans and FanDuel players massive doses of optimism for next season. At times, the Bucs offense performed like an elite unit, while the defense often did a wonderful impression of a brick wall.

Last week, the D ran into a buzzsaw that looked suspiciously like Drew Brees, but on the plus side, there were a few gentlemen on the other side of the ball who managed to put up a whole bunch of FanDuel points.MIKE EVANS – WR – 19.2 FDPs
Now there's the Mike Evans we've been missing for the past month. After three consecutive weeks of single-digit FanDuel point performances, Evans went off, hauling in seven of his eight targets for 97 yards and one touchdown. He comes into the final game of the season averaging 16.1 FDPs, the third best of any wide receiver in the NFL. Undeniably one of the best the league has to offer.


A behind-the-scenes look at the Buccaneers' game against the Saints.

Against the Saints, in one of his more efficient outings of the season, Winston completed 23 of 35 attempts for 277 yards and a couple of touchdowns, yardage-wise, his fifth best contest of the year. Like Evans, Winston exceeded expectations during the 2016 campaign, and rolls into 2017 as one of the NFL's top young signal callers.

Rogers spent the majority of the season listed second on the depth chart, but whenever he was on the field, man, did he make the most of it. Last Saturday offered the ideal snapshot of what Rogers is all about: He ran (15 rushes for 63 yards), he caught (hauled in both of his targets), and he found paydirt (a tidy rushing TD). Just the kind of number two back that every team wants…and needs.
