Buccaneers | Da'Quan Bowers entering key season

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 10:12:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Da'Quan Bowers has only recorded 4.5 sacks since he debuted in 2011. Head coach Greg Schiano said that he's banking on Bowers becoming an every-down option instead of a situational pass rusher. Bowers thinks that the way Schiano has drawn up the ways to use DT Gerald McCoy could draw significant attention, freeing up Bowers for more and better attempts at bringing down the opposing quarterback. The arrival of CB Darrelle Revis and FS Dashon Goldson should aid their coverage, which would translate to more time for Bowers to get into the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Bowers could find sleeper IDP value in leagues with favorable scoring of sacks. He's a depth piece for now. As for this squad, they fall just a bit short of every-week DT utility, but with their revamped secondary could change that quickly.
