Your Guide to the Week 3 Primetime Slate
Cash Game Locks
James Conner at Tampa Bay
Le’Veon Bell is still not around and Conner ranks second in the league in opportunities per game (25) through the first two weeks of the season. Lock him in against a Buccaneers’ defense that ranked 23rd in rushing yards allowed and 19th in Run DVOA a season ago.
Antonio Brown at Tampa Bay
AB has had an interesting week. He didn’t report for meetings on Monday after the Steelers’ loss to the Chiefs amid frustrations with the team. However, all is reportedly well now and the squeaky wheel is likely to get the grease in this one. AB leads the league in targets through two weeks (33) and simply can’t be faded against a Buccaneers’ pass defense that ranked dead last in passing yards allowed and 31st in Pass DVOA last season. The Buccaneers are missing Vernon Hargreaves due to injury in their secondary as well.
