Rank Among Leaders
|Mike Glennon likely headed for another poor performance |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12/10/13) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon might have salvaged his day Week 14 vs. Buffalo with two passing touchdowns, but he completed just 9 of 25 passes for 90 yards and also threw two interceptions.
Glennon finished with 11 Fantasy points last week and is averaging 7 Fantasy points in his last two games, leaving Fantasy owners with a major decision regarding starting Glennon as the Bucs host the 49ers Week 15.
It would probably be wise of Fantasy owners to leave Glennon out of active lineups Week 15, despite Glennon being a decent Fantasy start from Week 6 through Week 12. He averaged 18.6 Fantasy points per week in that span.
Well, quarterbacks average just 13.2 Fantasy points per week against San Francisco, which is the third-lowest average. No quarterback has thrown for more than one touchdown in the last six games against the 49ers. For the season, quarterbacks have thrown more interceptions (14) than touchdowns (13) against San Francisco.
Glennon has struggled the last two weeks against defenses that have played well against the pass lately and Week 15 is no easy task. It's best to look toward other alternatives in Fantasy.
|Mike Glennon tosses pair of scores in otherwise subpar game |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/8/13) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon didn't put up big numbers in Week 14 against the Bills, but he took advantage of some short fields in a 27-6 win Sunday.
Glennon finished with a career-low 90 yards through the air, while completing just 9 of 25 pass attempts. This would have been his worst game of the season, but he tossed a pair of touchdowns, of 38 and 5 yards, for his third multi-touchdown in the last four.
Glennon's defense gave him numerous short fields thanks to four interceptions, but he struggled to take care of the ball himself. Glennon was intercepted twice in the game, matching his worst career total, set in his first appearance.
Glennon has now started 10 games for the Buccaneers, posting a 4-6 record. He heads into Week 15 against the 49ers with 2,052 yards, 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions in his rookie season.
|Bills could make it tough for Mike Glennon to bounce back |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12/4/13) After taking home NFL offensive rookie of the month honors for November, Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon got off to a bumpy start in December, throwing for just 180 yards and no touchdowns in a 27-6 loss last week at Carolina. Glennon looks to bounce back Week 14 vs. Buffalo, but the Bills won't make it easy.
Quarterbacks are averaging 18.6 Fantasy points per week against Buffalo, but as of late quarterbacks have struggled. Quarterbacks have totaled just three passing touchdowns to four interceptions in the last four games against Buffalo, averaging 11.8 Fantasy points per week in that span.
Glennon has been more hit than miss since taking over as the team's starting quarterback. He's failed to reach at least 17 Fantasy points in just three of nine starts. After the first two times he was held to less than 10 Fantasy points, he bounced back the next game to surpass 20 Fantasy points.
Glennon is hardly a slam-dunk option Week 14 because the Bills' secondary has improved dramatically as of late, but he does pass as a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback. Glennon is ranked around the likes of Joe Flacco, EJ Manuel, Colin Kaepernick and Ryan Tannehill this week.
|Couple of mistakes doom Mike Glennon |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/1/13) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon, who threw for a season-high 275 yards when he last faced the Panthers in Week 8, looked decent early against the league's seventh-ranked pass defense on the road in Week 13, leading the Buccaneers on two field goal drives in the first quarter and positioning them for another score early in the second. But on third-and-goal from the 4, the ball slipped out of his hand as he cocked back to pass, resulting in a fumble.
It was all downhill from there. After completing 7 of 10 passes for 123 yards up to that point, the rookie finished the day 14 of 21 for 180 yards. He committed a second turnover early in the third quarter that was even more of a head-scratcher than the first, lobbing the ball to a spot downfield where only three Panthers defenders were positioned. Mike Mitchell grabbed it for an easy interception.
It marked the first time in nine games that Glennon went without a touchdown pass. He had thrown two in five of his previous seven. He'll look to get back on track with a more favorable matchup Week 14 against the Bills.
|Mike Glennon's fun Fantasy ride may be coming to an end |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/27/13) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon has scored 21 Fantasy points in two straight games. He has multiple touchdowns in five of his last seven, and has thrown just one interception in his last six games.
Glennon, however, has thrown an average of 22 passes in his last four games, despite his last two coming against weak pass defenses (Atlanta and Detroit). While he's been decent lately, Glennon's ceiling seems to be right at that 21-point mark. And the downside is significant -- in the three games prior to those two favorable matchups, he failed to hit the 20-point mark, averaging 15 Fantasy points per game.
In Week 8 against the Panthers (his Week 13 opponent), Glennon threw a season-high 51 passes, completing 30 of them for 275 yards and a touchdown. He hasn't seen half that total of pass attempts since. Additionally, the Panthers have allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season, and no quarterback has thrown multiple touchdowns against them.
With bye weeks a thing of the past, Glennon's lack of big game potential (and recent trend of throwing fewer than 25 passes per game) makes him a better bench option for Week 13.
|Josh Freeman finished six points shy of being among the Top 12 Fantasy quarterbacks last season. Depending which part of his year you remember seeing, this will either surprise you or disgust you. His first four games were weak before coming out of the bye with reckless abandon, stringing together six straight games with at least two touchdowns and at least 20 Fantasy points. Then he hit a wall in Week 12 and had a couple of decent games mixed in with some stinkers (who could forget his back-to-back four interception games in Weeks 15 and 16?). We do know the Bucs will stick with Freeman heading into 2012 and we know he'll play behind an offensive line that was decimated by injuries by the end of the year along with a very good receiving corps that helped him put up career-highs in yardage (4,065) and touchdowns (27). No one should reach for Freeman in drafts but targeting him late in drafts as a No. 2 quarterback could pay off dividends as he enters a contract year and is basically in the exact same situation Joe Flacco was in last season. Maybe it works out for Freeman, too. (Updated 4/26/13) |
