Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin
Rob Gronkowski (ribs) is out for Week 6 against the Eagles. As expected. Gronkowski will miss his third straight game. In his absence, Antonio Brown has taken on more of a role as the clear third option in the passing game. Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard haven't made impacts in the box score.
Philadelphia Eagles DFS Spin
Eagles RT Lane Johnson (personal) will not play in Week 6 against the Bucs. Johnson will miss his third consecutive game with a personal matter. Eagles coach Nick Siriani said on Monday that he did not know if Johnson would return to the team this year. The Eagles started Jordan Mailata at right tackle and Andre Dillard at left tackle last week. They'll likely role with the same setup versus the Bucs.
