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.
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.
After taking home NFL offensive rookie of the month honors for November,
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.
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.
