Los Angeles Chargers DFS Spin
Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said he's "not in a position" to rule out Tyrod Taylor (ribs) for Week 4 against the Buccaneers. He also said his "number one concern" is getting Taylor healthy before figuring out who the starter will be moving forward. Justin Herbert made a few errant throws in Week 3 against the Panthers but continues to provide a spark for an offense that struggled mightily against the Bengals with Taylor engineering the gameplan. If/When Taylor is healthy, it would not be shocking to see Lynn weigh his past relationships over the rookie's presence under center.
Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin
Tom Brady completed 25-of-38 passes for 297 yards and three touchdowns in the Bucs' Week 3 win over the Broncos. Brady had a clean game after throwing three interceptions the first two weeks. He hit Mike Evans for a pair of goal-line touchdowns, with his other score coming on a 10-yard strike to Chris Godwin. All of Brady's TDs came in the first half and he wasn't needed after that with the Bucs' protecting a three-score lead. Brady will look to stay hot for a Week 4 matchup with the Chargers.
