Dolphins vs. Bucs Week 5 Prediction
Tom Brady and the Bucs will look to improve to 4-1 on the season when they host the struggling Dolphins at 1:00 p.m. ET. With Tampa Bay laying 10 points as home chalk and the total sitting at 48 points, what’s the best bet on the board?

Miami Dolphins DFS Spin
DeVante Parker (hamstring) is questionable for Week 5 against the Buccaneers. Parker is also dealing with a shoulder issue his Week 5 status appears to be genuinely up in the air. With Will Fuller on injured reserve and facing the Buccaneers pass funnel defense, Parker could be in for significant downfield volume if healthy. If he's unable to go it will mean a bigger role for Albert Wilson, and perhaps a more versatile role for Jaylen Waddle.
Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin
Rob Gronkowski (ribs) won't play in Week 5 against the Dolphins. As expected. Gronkowski reportedly fractured his ribs in Tampa Bay's Week 3 loss to the Rams and will be sidelined for "multiple weeks." Cam Brate ran 33 routes to O.J. Howard's 16 on Sunday, finishing third in targets (6) behind Mike Evans (12) and Chris Godwin (11), and remains the tight end to usage-based TE(2) to chase for the Bucs in the interim.
