Devonta Freeman rushed 11 times for 12 yards in Atlanta's Week 3, blowout win over the Bucs, adding a seven-yard reception while also losing a fumble.

Sep 19 - 12:12 AM

Roddy White (hamstring) expects to play in Week 4.

Speaking after Thursday's blowout win, coach Mike Smith implied White would have played had the Falcons not been on a short week. He now has 10 days to get ready for Atlanta's Week 4 trip to Minnesota. A former iron man, White hasn't been anyone's idea of durable over the past two seasons, but is a cinch WR2 whenever he's healthy and playing opposite all-world beast Julio Jones.

Mike Evans caught 4-of-7 targets for 52 yards in the Bucs' Week 3, blowout loss to the Falcons.

One of Evans' missed targets was a Mike Glennon deep ball he probably should have hauled in. Evans was not one of the problems as the Bucs got waxed 56-14, but did appear sluggish, as if he's still adjusting to the speed of the NFL. He now has 13 grabs for 138 yards through three games. With Josh McCown not moving the offense (and hurt), Evans could benefit from a switch to Glennon.
Sep 18 - 11:58 PM

Vincent Jackson caught 2-of-9 targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in Tampa Bay's Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

V-Jax's score — where he got away with a push off — put the Bucs down 56-7 in the fourth quarter. He went the first three periods without a catch. Although bad quarterback play played a big part in V-Jax's inefficiency, at least one of his missed connections was a drop. Jackson has now wheezed to a 10/102/1 line through three games. He could be the biggest beneficiary if the Bucs decide to bench Josh McCown's slow release for Mike Glennon.
Sep 18 - 11:55 PM

Playing in relief of an injured Josh McCown (thumb), Mike Glennon completed 17-of-24 passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in Tampa Bay's 56-14, Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

Glennon technically didn't commit any turnovers, but had a snap sail over his head. The Falcons recovered, setting up shop at the Bucs' two-yard line. Glennon later had another miscommunication with C Evan Dietrich-Smith, lining up in shotgun with EDS thought he was under center. It was hard to evaluate Glennon with the game so out of hand, but he looked better than McCown has this season, though he averaged a measly 5.0 yards per attempt. He found Vincent Jackson for a three-yard score in the fourth quarter. McCown's hand was heavily wrapped after his departure, making him look like a long-shot for Week 4. If Glennon starts, he'll do so on the road against the Steelers, and be a bottom-barrel QB2 as the Bucs search for an offensive identity.
Sep 18 - 11:47 PM

Steven Jackson rushed 14 times for 54 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's 56-14, Week 3 bombardment of the Falcons.

S-Jax's two-yard score in the third quarter — where he stood up four Bucs defenders to put the Falcons up 49-0 — was his first of the season. Jackson could have had two first-quarter scores, but was gassed by the time the Falcons reached the red zone on each of their first two drives. Jackson is running with extremely little lateral agility these days, but still has more than enough power to churn out yardage up the middle. The leader of the Falcons' four-man committee, Jackson is also by far the best touchdown bet. He's a safe RB3.
Sep 18 - 11:43 PM

Bobby Rainey rushed 10 times for just 33 yards in Tampa Bay's 56-14, Week 3 loss to the Falcons, catching seven passes for 64 yards while also losing two fumbles.

The 97 yards from scrimmage were actually a best-case scenario for a player who was briefly benched following his first fumble in the first quarter, and could have been sent to the pine for good after coughing it up on the Bucs' opening drive of the second half. Thankfully, coach Lovie Smith showed mercy on a night where his entire team stunk. Rainey's long-term role remains up in the air with Doug Martin (knee) likely back for Week 4, but he's going to keep getting work, and quite possibly lead a committee. Rainey should remain owned in 10-12 team leagues.
Sep 18 - 11:40 PM

Julio Jones caught 9-of-11 targets for 161 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 3 humiliation of the Bucs.

Spending most of the game lining up opposite RCB Johnthan Banks, Jones found every inch of space in the Bucs' zone coverage, racking up the second most yards of his regular-season career in just two and a half quarters. The Falcons pulled their starters up 49-0 midway through the third quarter. Jones' second touchdown, a 40-yarder, was perhaps the best catch by any player this season. Reeling in an over-the-shoulder grab, Jones showed ridiculous body control and awareness as he caught the ball going to the ground in the end zone. One of the very best players in the NFL, Jones heads into the Falcons' Week 4 trip to Minnesota with 23 catches for 365 yards and three touchdowns. He has at least seven grabs in all three games.
