Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin

Antonio Brown (COVID-19) is out for Week 3 against the Rams. Brown's role is likely to be split by Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson. Both are capable players who should be able to earn targets, although not as capably as Brown. Chris Godwin and Mike Evans could both be in for big weeks if Buccaneers vs. Rams lives up to its game total. Both players have upside for additional targets this week in a game where Tampa Bay should be passing frequently.

Los Angeles Rams DFS Spin

Darrell Henderson (ribs) will be a game time decision for Week 3 against the Buccaneers. HC Sean McVay elaborated on Henderson's availability, saying it would "depend on pain tolerance." Henderson had an every down role prior to departing in Week 2. Even if he plays he's likely to split some early down carries with Sony Michel and cede some third downs to Jake Funk. With how high scoring the Rams game against the Buccaneers could be, Henderson will still be interesting if he goes. Fantasy managers will need a backup option in place however, because the game is in the late afternoon window. If Henderson misses, Michel is likely to handle the vast majority of carries with Funk working in for third downs.
