Sunday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Buccaneers at Patriots
Editors note: 

This weekend, we will see Tom Brady face off against Bill Belichick for the first time in his career, o predicting how Brady will utilize these Tampa Bay Buccaneers weapons against them will be very challenging. The Patriots may have one of the best defenses in football but they have faced the Dolphins, Jets, and Saints. No quarterback has thrown for over 220 yards, and no player has had 100 yards on the ground or in the air against New England. They may very well be a good defense, but this will be the best offense they have played so far this year, and they do not have the firepower to match up with it.

On the other side, we have Mac Jones making his first primetime start against the man who helped build the Patriots' legacy. The Buccaneers have options you can take advantage of in the secondary, but this offensive line will have their hands full protecting Jones. Jones, this past weekend had a lot of mistakes and hasn't been pushing the ball downfield, which is the way you put up points on the Buccaneers. Figuring out the replacement for the James White role and who receives the most targets from the pass-catchers will be crucial to building the perfect lineup.

Patriots Implied Total: 21.25

They anticipate the Patriots to hang around a little bit in this one, and it makes the idea of playing two Patriots in your builds viable. The Buccaneers are looking at four total touchdowns based on the implied total, so that is where I will be looking for my captain.
