Fantasy Football Week 9 Start/Sit: Will Any Buccaneers Have Success Against The Saints?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off of a bye this week against the New Orleans Saints, and despite recent trends this season, the bye could give them more time to be prepared for their division rival. How that will play out on the field remains to be seen, but it could be a nice little boost for an offensively inconsistent Bucs team. Does that mean that they could help your Fantasy lineup? Let's run it down.

Josh Freeman had arguably his best game of the season the last time these two teams got together, so he might be in line for a big performance this week as well. Our pals at numberFire project him to get just over 15 points this week, which is pretty solid but not spectacular.

LeGarette Blount could be coming back from injury, and he is projected to get just over 13. If he is totally healthy, I wouldn't be surprised if he surpassed that total because there is really no one else on the roster worth giving carries to.

Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn could each have big days against the Saints, as Benn did last time. They won't win you your week, but they will be very adequate replacements for someone with a bye.

Kellen Winslow continues to be a solid if unspectacular fantasy option, and is worth playing if you don't have an elite tight end on your roster already.
