Monday Night Observations

After a brutal weekend it was nice to get a small respite – DeSean Jackson getting me a point or so before getting hurt was enough to win a small, private, low-stakes DFS contest, and I had the Bucs plus six.

• Jameis Winston played a great game – 299 yards, 8.5 YPA, three TDs, no picks and only two sacks. He also ran for 18 yards. Mike Evans caught five of eight targets for 79 yards and a score, but it would have been a huge day had he not been called twice for offensive PI on big plays. O.J. Howard might have had a big day, but he got hurt on his TD catch and left the game.

• Peyton Barber started for the Bucs and looked okay. LOL at those who waited out Doug Martin’s early-season suspension.

• Matt Ryan and Julio Jones had pedestrian games – you simply can’t count on either this year.

• Devonta Freeman had a huge game, leading the team in both rushing and receiving and totaling 194 YFS and a TD with five catches. He almost had a second TD, but fumbled into the end zone.

• Matt Bryant had a FG blocked, but also crushed a 57-yarder. It’s crazy how good the kicking in the modern NFL is compared to past eras.
