Dolphins- Bucs: Ronnie Brown Injured in Close Win | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings
For the second week in a row the Tampa Bay Buccaneers put up a strong showing against a solid opponent. In the end, the Dolphins marched down the field with little time left and won the game on a field goal.
Kellen Winslow has 100 Yard Day
Buccaneers star tight end Kellen Winslow finally showed life this weekend as he caught seven passes for 102 yards. Winslow hasn’t been fantasy worthy for most of the season, but he may be a reasonable option from here on out.
I base this on the fact that young quarterbacks like Josh Freeman tend to lock onto their tight end. If Winslow continues to get the looks from his quarterback, he can be effective.
This team is starting to turn its season around, and it looks like they aren’t a great play if you’re looking for an easy fantasy matchup for defensive points.
Dolphins Run Well
This week was another strong effort from the Dolphins running game. Before Ronnie Brown left the game he had twelve carries for 82 yards and a touchdown run.
Ricky Williams put the game away with twenty carries for 102 yards.
For the Dolphins to win football games, they need performances like this one from their running backs. Next week they play the Panthers on Thursday night, and it will be interesting to see if Brown can play in the game.
Kicker Dan Carpenter also had a very good game as he was four of four on field goal attempts. Carpenter is having a good year in 2009 and he looks like a kicker that could have some value in fantasy football in the coming weeks and years. Only in his second season, if Carpenter continues to kick well he will gain the confidence of his coaching staff to let him kick the long field goals more of the time.
