Buccaneers Fantasy Football Week 3: No Sure Bets Against Dallas

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers head to Dallas with a lot of guys who could have big weeks in fantasy football, but after an up-and-down first two weeks for both teams, it's hard to know for certain whether they will.

The Cowboys defense, which features two pricey new CB's in Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne, did a good job of controlling the New York Giants high-powered passing attack in Week 1, but they weren't challenged much by a Seattle Seahawks team content to pound the ball with a rookie QB in Week 2.

Seattle did have a lot of success running the ball with Marshawn Lynch, who had 26 carries for 122 yards and 1 TD.

Tampa Bay's offense, meanwhile, has been just as inconsistent, putting up only 16 points in a defensive struggle against the Carolina Panthers before losing a 41-34 shootout to the Giants in Week 2.

The good folks over at NumberFire have crunched the numbers and they project all of the Bucs main contributors to have decent, if not spectacular, days on Sunday:

Josh Freeman: 19-32 228.94 yards 1.6 TD's 1 INT

Doug Martin: 14 carries for 66 yards 0.38 TD

Vincent Jackson: 4 catches for 78 yards 0.65 TD

Mike Williams: 4 catches for 58 yards 0.25 TD
