Underwood didn't stop there. He caught two more passes before halftime and finished with a season-high five receptions for 93 yards to end the year on a high note. He ends the year with four scores among his 24 catches.
The Buccaneers finished the game with just 158 yards through the air, and 98 of those went to Vincent Jackson, leaving little left over. Owusu finished third on the team with 13 yards on two receptions, and Underwood had just 7 yards on a single reception.
The Buccaneers season ends in Week 17 against the Saints.
Leonard managed one catch for 12 yards. He didn't record any catches despite being targeted twice.
Owusu was targeted five times, totaling three catches for 21 yards. Underwood was also targeted five times, totaling two catches for 15 yards.
The Bucs are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.
Underwood has seen his yardage total decrease by almost exactly 50 in the last three games, going from 108 yards in Week 12, to 51 last week. He will try to get back on track in Week 15, against the 49ers.
Underwood has been a nice deep option for the Bucs, averaging a career-high 20.3 yards per reception, but it certainly makes him a boom-or-bust player in Fantasy because he doesn't rack up a ton of receptions. He hasn't had more than three catches in a game this year, and he only surpassed 100 yards a few weeks ago against the Lions thanks to an 85-yard touchdown catch.
The Bills are a decent matchup on paper for Underwood. Wide receivers average 27 Fantasy points per week against Buffalo, which is the third-highest average. Wide receivers also average 194.9 receiving yards per game, but Buffalo has played better against receivers lately. In the last four games, wide receivers have averaged just 16.3 Fantasy points and totaled one touchdown.
Perhaps one of the most intriguing things about Underwood's matchup Week 14 is that secondary receivers have done well against the Bills this season. It's a long list of players like Julian Edelman, Ted Ginn, Stephen Hill, Marlon Brown, Greg Little, Marvin Jones, Brandon Gibson, Kenny Stills, Lance Moore, Jerricho Cotchery and Harry Douglas.
Perhaps if you are in a deep league and looking for a sleeper Week 14, then Underwood fits the bill. But he's really not an option for shallow formats because he needs to get a big play to make a difference.
