Tampa Bay Buccaneers Analysis
Although the Buccaneers have only won two games, their passing offense has still been prolific. Receivers Chris Godwin and Mike Evans have been having some great games. Last game, Evans had 11 receptions for 198 yards and 2 touchdowns. However, he has had some terrible performances as well. In week 5 against the Saints, Evans played the whole game, but scored 0 points. Chris Godwin is not immune to bad games as well. Last game, he had 4 receptions for 43 yards. Though these receivers have occasional bad games, they have been top fantasy receivers. They are both worth starting this week against a Seahawks defense that ranks 30th in passing yards allowed. Both of them are great options this week and should definitely be started.
Jameis Winston is also a great option to start this week. Though he has turned the ball over 15 times this season, he still throws the ball a lot and has been pretty consistent. Over the last five games, he has averaged 25.5 fantasy points. Also, the Seahawks rank 19th in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. This should mean a great game for Winston. Even if he may turn the ball over a lot, he makes up for it by making many big plays.

Seattle Seahawks Analysis
The Seahawks offense should do very well this week. The Buccaneers defense has allowed the 4th most points to offenses, and the Seahawks offense is very high powered. Russell Wilson is in line to have a great game. He started off the season very hot, but averaged 15.5 fantasy points over the last two games. This is his chance to have another great performance. The Buccaneers have allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and rank 23rd in passing yards allowed. This means that Russell Wilson and the Seahawks receivers should do well.
Tyler Lockett has been very consistent for fantasy football. He has had 10+ PPR points in seven of his eight games. He has been consistent, but he has not had many outstanding performances. He only had 20+ points once, and that was in week 3 against the Saints when he had 11 receptions for 154 yards and 1 touchdown. I would not expect Lockett to have an outstanding game against the Buccaneers, but he should have another 10-20 point game. DK Metcalf is also another great option this week. Since the Buccaneers have allowed the 5th most fantasy points to receivers, Metcalf and Lockett could do well. Over the last three games, Metcalf has had 19 targets, and he scored 16.3 PPR points last week. Against a bad defense like the Buccaneers, Metcalf could have a breakout game. He is definitely worth starting because he could have a breakout game, but if not, he should have at least 10 fantasy points.
Seattle Seahawks Depth Chart
Chris Godwin (DK: $7,300, FD: $8,200) and Mike Evans (DK: $7,200, FD: $8,100) should do well because they are facing a leaky Seahawks pass defense. Though they each have very high salaries, they could be worth it because one of them should have a 30+ points game. Also, quarterback Jameis Winston (DK: $6,100, FD: $7,700) should do great as well. His salary is not very high, and he has averaged 21.6 fantasy points this season. This makes him an enticing option with great value. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (DK: $7,100, FD: $8,600) should also do well because the Buccaneers have allowed the second most fantasy points to quarterbacks. However, his salary is the highest of any quarterback on both DraftKings and FanDuel. He will still have a great game, but he may not be worth the salary. Lastly, I do not like Chris Carson (DK: $7,200, FD: $8,200) for this game. The Buccaneers rank 3rd in fantasy points allowed to running backs. This means that the Seahawks will rely on the passing game much more, so that will leave Carson with minimal production.
