Garcia had his third 300-plus yard passing game of the season on Monday night in the 38-23 loss at Carolina, but with only 10 TD passes in 10 starts he's still not a worthy play in the fantasy playoffs. Garcia had a monster game against the Panthers, completing 24-of-38 passes for 321 yards and two TDs, but he didn't play in the earlier 24-9 win over the Falcons. He should have mild success this week against a Falcons' pass defense that ranks 23rd against the pass, but beware the pressure from the rush.
Dunn never was a factor on Monday night at Carolina as he was limited to just 10 carries for 49 yards and three catches for 13 yards. He did score a touchdown and rush for 49 yards in the Week 2 win over Atlanta and should be more of a factor in this week's game, but he's still an iffy fantasy play against the Falcons, who rank 22nd against the run.
Williams rushed for a TD for the second straight game on Monday night at Carolina, barreling over linebackers from four yards out. He continues to make great progress in his comeback from major knee surgery, but even as the new goal-line back for the Bucs, he shouldn't be active on fantasy playoff rosters this week.
There's some real man-love for Bryant right now after he posted an incredible 41-point game on Monday night at Carolina. Bryant had nine catches for 200 yards and two TDs against the Panthers and is now just 64 yards shy of 1,000. He's quickly become a new No. 1 fantasy wideout and should post solid numbers again this week against a Falcons' pass defense that ranks 23rd in the NFL.
Hilliard had two catches for 20 yards on Monday night at Carolina and had four catches for 41 yards in the Week 2 win over Atlanta. He's a good No. 3 WR for Tampa Bay, but he shouldn't be active on any playoff fantasy rosters this week.
Bryant had his lowest scoring game of the season as he missed an easy 40-yard field goal in the first quarter on Monday night and finished with eight points. Feel free to keep him in your lineup this week as he should rebound with a better game.
Ryan struggled badly in the Week 2 loss at Tampa Bay, but that's when he was still a young rookie. He completed just 13-of-33 passes for 158 yards, no scores and two TDs, but he's been wonderful since then. Last week he held his own in the shootout at New Orleans, completing 24-of-33 passes for 315 yards and a TD in the 29-25 loss. The Bucs rank fourth in the NFL against the pass and will be tough again, but at home Ryan should bounce back and finish with much better numbers this time around.
Turner had a relatively quiet game last week at New Orleans as he gained just 61 yards on 18 carries, but he did score a touchdown, his eighth in the last five games. Turner was held to just 42 yards on 14 carries in the Week 2 loss at Tampa and this week could be a tough matchup against a Bucs' defense that had allowed only two rushing TDs before giving up three in Monday night's loss to Carolina. Look for Turner to continue that trend with a romp or two to the end zone this week.
White failed to catch a TD pass for the fourth straight week last week at New Orleans, but that didn't stop him from posting a season-best 10 catches for 164 yards. The Bucs held this All-Pro WR to just four catches for 59 yards in the Week 2 loss at Tampa, but he will be tough to stop this week at home. Plan on another big game and even an end zone dance.
Jenkins continues to improve for the Falcons as a solid No. 2 wideout and on last week at New Orleans he had five catches for 69 yards. But he's scored in just two games this year and remains an iffy Flex play even in Point-Per-Reception leagues. Expect limited production again this week.
Douglas has had at least one big catch in each of the last three weeks and last week at New Orleans he finished with two catches for 45 yards. He's become a bigger No. 3 threat than Brian Finneran, but he still shouldn't be active on any fantasy playoff rosters in Week 15.
Peelle hasn't made anyone forget about Alge Crumpler this year as he's a non-factor for the Falcons and for fantasy owners. He had one catch last week at New Orleans for nine yards and shouldn't be active on any fantasy playoff rosters this week.
