QBMatt Ryan

Matt Ryan

310 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT

Ryan threw a career-worst five interceptions and no touchdowns against the Cardinals, but he was still able to throw for 301 yards. Despite having five games with three touchdown passes, Ryan now has three touchdown passes in his past three games combined.

RBMichael Turner

Michael Turner

60 rush yards, rush TD

Turner scored his fifth touchdown of the season and he rushed for 46 yards against the Cardinals. The Buccaneers are tough against the run, but Turner should still be considered a decent RB2 in Week 12.

RBJacquizz Rodgers

Jacquizz Rodgers

25 rush yards, 5 rec, 40 rec yards

Rodgers totaled 51 yards in Week 11 and he continues to serve as Michael Turner's caddy in the Falcons' offense. Rodgers has just one touchdown on the season so far.

WRRoddy White

Roddy White

8 rec, 115 yards, rec TD

White was one of the few Falcons who had a big day from a fantasy perspective in Week 11. He now has at least seven catches in each of his past three games. Even better, the Buccaneers have a bad pass defense.

WRJulio Jones

Julio Jones

5 rec, 70 yards

Jones was troubled by a bad ankle all day against the Cardinals, which explains his three catches for 33 yards. Hopefully, another week of rest will help him rebound for a big Week 12, but watch his status closely.

TETony Gonzalez

Tony Gonzalez

5 rec, 60 yards, rec TD

Gonzalez caught three passes for 33 yards in Week 11 against the Cardinals, just one week after blowing up against the Saints for 122 yards and two touchdowns. Gonzalez will be up against rookie strong safety Mark Barron in Week 12, and we expect solid numbers.

KMatt Bryant

Matt Bryant

3 PATs, 3 FGs

Bryant continued being a fantasy scoring machine in Week 11, converting three field goals (including a 51-yarder) and two extra points. Bryant now has 10 or more fantasy points in six games this season.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Falcons registered three sacks and scored a touchdown on a fumble return against the Cardinals in Week 11. They'll face a Buccaneers team that has protected the ball and is red-hot offensively. They should get some sacks, but turnovers might be tough to come by.

QBJosh Freeman

Josh Freeman

240 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT, 22 rush yards

Freeman had an off day in Week 11, throwing two interceptions for the first time since Week 2, but he was still able to throw three touchdown passes. He now has 16 touchdown passes and just three interceptions in his past six games. The Falcons are pretty good against the pass, however.

RBDoug Martin

Doug Martin

105 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 24 rec yards

Martin's good day could have been great in Week 11, but his touchdown run was erased when he fumbled it away. He still finished with 138 rushing yards in an overtime win over Carolina. Week 12's opponent, the Falcons, are allowing more than 130 rushing yards per game, which bodes well for the rookie.

RBD.J. Ware

D.J. Ware

5 rush yards, 2 rec, 22 rec yards

Ware appears to have overtaken LeGarrette Blount as Doug Martin's backup. Even so, he's not worth picking up in fantasy play unless Martin gets injured.

WRVincent Jackson

Vincent Jackson

5 rec, 70 yards, rec TD

Jackson caught six passes for 94 yards, a touchdown and a two-point conversion at Carolina in Week 11. He was targeted 11 times and he continues to be Josh Freeman's favorite target. He has a chance to turn in the greatest season by a wide receiver in Buccaneers history.

WRMike Williams

Mike Williams

4 rec, 65 yards, rec TD

Williams caught three passes for 29 yards at Carolina in Week 11, but he was targeted nine times. Don't get too down on Williams just yet. Dallas Clark's emergence doesn't seem to be taking away too many opportunities. Williams is still a WR3 entering Week 12.

TEDallas Clark

Dallas Clark

5 rec, 55 yards

After getting just one target in Week 10, Clark was a huge part of the offense at Carolina, seeing 11 targets. He caught seven passes for 58 yards and a touchdown. Tight ends have done well against the Falcons, making Clark a nice low-end starting option.

KConnor Barth

Connor Barth

3 PATs, 2 FGs

Barth made both of his field-goal attempts, including a 51-yarder, at Carolina in Week 11. He also added an extra point. He now has seven field goals and 14 extra points in his past four games.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Buccaneers forced one turnover and sacked Cam Newton twice in Week 11. The Falcons' offense is much better than Carolina's, making the Buccaneers' defense one to avoid in Week 12.
