Daily fantasy sports are all the rage now, and today is a good day to add a fair share of Tampa Bay Buccaneers players to your lineup.
While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers players not named Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are usually avoided on daily fantasy sports (DFS) rosters, this week is different. They take on the Arizona Cardinals who have multiple holes in their roster
Your Buccaneers currently sit at a 2-6 record to date and are set to host their first home game since a week three heartbreaker against the New York Giants. After a grueling road schedule that saw trips to Seattle, Los Angeles, and London, this Bucs team is ready to put on a show for their fans. Coming to town is the 3-5-1 Arizona Cardinals led by rookie head coach, Kilff Kingsbury and rookie qusrterback, Kyler Murray.
The Bucs currently sit as a -4.5 point favorite while the game has an over/under set at 52.5 points. Vegas is expecting this game to be a high scoring affair and one where we see a ton of offensive scoring. While the line is high I’m not too high on starting any Cardinals outside of Kyle Murray and Christian Kirk in DFS lineups since this Bucs run defense is actually pretty stout.

While I am not high on many Cardinals players I am very excited to start multiple Bucs players. In my big money contest on Draftkings I am starting Jameis Winston ($6,800), Chris Godwin ($7,400) and O.J. Howard ($3,300) without hesitation. I think this could be a huge day forJameis Winston and so I want as many pieces of the Bucs passing game as possible.
While I wasn’t able to snag Mike Evans ($7,600) in my lineup I do think he could very easily have a successful day as well. My reasoning for leaning with Godwin over Evans is because I would imagine that if Patrick Peterson shadows anyone it’ll be Evans. Godwin should benefit from picking on Byron Murphy Jr and Chris Jones.
Another great value play with some upside is the new starting running back for the Bucs in Ronald Jones III. Jones is currently valued at ($4,300) and is facing a cardinals defense that is middle of the pack against running backs.
The Cardinals are currently giving up the third most fantasy points to the quarterback position, 11th most fantasy points to wide receivers and are the absolute worst in the league against the tight end so prepare for the rare Howard sighting.
If there was ever a week to be a homer when it comes to your daily lineups this is as good a week as any to do so. Get those Bucs players in your lineups and win some money!
