Tampa Bay vs Atlanta (1 Viewer)

This is an intriguing matchup to me. Atlanta looked very good, but it was versus the Lions. Turner and Norwood both ran very well and Ryan protected the ball well. The Bucs def was #3 overall last year, so this could be a different ballgame for Turner and Co. Although, Derrick Brooks is questionable with a hamstring injury and may not play. I like Turner in this game, and am a little disappointed I didn't get him on any of my rosters, as I didn't think Atlanta would be able to move the ball with Ryan at QB...but I think Turner has top 10 potential this year...but not this week vs the Bucs.

For the Bucs, Griese will be starting in place of injured and disgruntled QB Jeff Garcia. I personally think this will help Joey Galloway and Antonio Bryant. Graham should have a good game running the ball against Atl's defense too. I like Galloway to get loose for a long TD this week.

The Bucs def might be the best play fantasy wise as Kiffin will likely put a lot of pressure on Ryan, and the Tampa DBs are some of the best in the league. I would say they are a top 5 defense this week....look for 2 ints and 3 sacks.

Final score Tampa Bay 24 Atlanta 10.

 
I think Atlanta will surprise some people this season and tomorrow will be surprise #2. Falcons will defeat the Bucs 17-14.

Derrick Brooks hasn't missed a game in his entire career. I'm not exactly sure what Tampa's record is against QB's in their rookie season, but I know it's good. Brian Griese knows this offense and has looked good through training camp and preseason with the ones. I'd expect Tampa to win this game fairly easily.
