In a must-win situation looking for their fourth divisional win on the year, the Bucs entered a crucial Week 14 game looking to stay in the playoff chase and perhaps regain some fantasy relevance.
312 passing yards later combined with three total touchdowns by the Saints offense, the Bucs couldn’t secure a win on the field or in the fantasy community.
Lavonte David continued a linebacker domination as the unit proved to be the strongest unit in a defense aching for leaders.
It was also the first of a four-game suspension being served by standout rookie Kwon Alexander who had previously tested positive for a banned substance he says was in an energy drink.
Tampa’s season wasn’t over, but the defense’s fantasy season was just about snuffed out after a two point lack of showing against New Orleans.
