Buccaneers | Fines taking away from physicality?

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 19:19:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Akeem Spence said Wednesday, Nov. 6, that the threat of fines has caused the defense to slip in recent weeks. "The first couple weeks we were getting fined out of the woodwork," Spence said. "That did take away some of our physicality. The first couple weeks we were crushing quarterbacks, and then we kind of got away from it because we got a lot of penalties." In the first four games, S Ahmad Black (now a free-agent), DT Adrian Clayborn, LB Lavonte David and FS Dashon Goldson were each fined by the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Whatever the reason might be for the decline in production, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers DST is not a unit worth using in any fantasy format. They have allowed 27 or more points in four consecutive games.
