As training camp and the rest of offseason activities approach, it is almost that time of year where Buccaneers fans start looking at fantasy football.
Fantasy season is upon us! Here are my takes on some of the top fantasy options from the Buccaneers this season!
Tom Brady- Of course, you’ve got to have the GOAT on your fantasy team! Tom finished last season as the third-ranked QB in ESPN fantasy leagues. With an offseason where Brady has been able to fully recover from a knee surgery that admittedly plagued him last year and a slew of weapons at his disposal, I will bet on another season of fantasy success for TB12.
Leonard Fournette- Before Fournette suffered a week 15 injury, which make his statistics look pedestrian by causing him to miss the rest of the regular season, Fournette was a top tier fantasy back.
Fournette, at that time, was sharing carries with Ronald Jones II, but was still our primary ball carrier. With RoJo heading to Kansas City, Leonard has the chance to draw even more of the lion’s share of touches this season. He will be backed up by rookie running back Rachaad White, whom is making great impressions this off season, but it appears that the bulk of the work will still go to Fournette. This sets him up for a potential top-10 fantasy finish this year.
If the Bucs continue to lean on Fournette like they have in the past, there is a good chance that he can end the year firmly in the top-six or top-seven at his position. We all know he has the talent for it.
