Bucs Game Moved: 5 Reasons Why It’s Good For Fantasy Football

  • David Gonos


The NFL finally announced Wednesday that the Week 1 game between the Dolphins and the Buccaneers in Miami is going to be moved to their mutual Week 11 bye.

With the Dolphins-Bucs game moved, this certainly throws a wrench into many Fantasy Football owners’ plans, as Jameis Winston, Jacquizz Rodgers, Jay Ajayi, Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, Jarvis Landry, Devante Parker, O.J. Howard and the Buccaneers defense are all owned in over 50-percent of Fantasy leagues on CBS.

However, after a closer look, I found several reasons why having the Bucs game moved is actually a good thing for Fantasy Football owners, and a bad thing for the Buccaneers in general.

5 Reasons Why Moving the Game is Good For Fantasy Football/Bad For Bucs

There can be arguments made for both cases of course, and some of these points can refer to the Dolphins, too. But for the most part, the Bucs are Fantasy rich, so this has more to do with their club.
