Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin
Tom Brady completed 22-of-38 passes for 209 yards with three interceptions in the Bucs' Week 9 loss to the Saints. This was one of Brady’s worst games, though he didn’t get much help from his supporting cast. Rob Gronkowski dropped a touchdown, and the Bucs offensive line had him under constant pressure. It’s the second loss of the season to the Saints for Brady and the Bucs, who dropped to second place in the NFC South. Brady has a middle of the road matchup with the Panthers in Week 10, who held him to 217 yards and one TD earlier this season.
Carolina Panthers DFS Spin
Teddy Bridgewater completed 36-of-49 passes for 310 yards and two touchdowns in the Panthers' Week 9 loss to the Chiefs. Bridgewater was a check-down artist on Sunday, but it was effective now that he has his full complement of pass-catchers in the lineup. The Panthers called a bunch of screens to Christian McCaffrey and hit on countless shallow crossers to Robby Anderson (13 targets), Curtis Samuel (9), and D.J. Moore (3). Bridgewater's best two plays were runs, a sign that his leg injury is not limiting him much at this point. The Panthers offense is well-coached and has enough fire power to lead Bridgewater into the high-end or mid-range QB2 conversation. Reaching those levels against the Bucs in Week 10 will be a moderate but doable challenge.
