    Look, no one wants to watch this game so I don’t expect you to watch it either. But you likely have pieces of these teams on your fantasy rosters, and so we must dive in and give you the insights here. These teams are probably not going to the postseason, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get a serviceable fantasy line out of one of these guys.

    Main Storylines to Watch

    Oof: The Panthers are just absolutely bad, bad, bad. Three exclamation points. However, that means we can expect the younger players to get some extended run here. The Panthers made a coaching change, and that makes them a huge question mark going into Week 13. We don’t really have time to wait and see how this plays out, so we’ll try our best to guess what the Panthers may be thinking. Either way, it seems Bryce Young is safe as management openly supported him. Can Bryce Young be better than historically bad? I would bet money that’s what the Panthers are going to spend the next six games trying to figure out.

    Just Not Enough: The Buccs have been competitive every week and that’s reflected in the fact that they have the second-lowest average point differential of all teams with losing differentials. The shell of a previous Super Bowl contender is still in there, but the Buccs just don’t have enough to get the job done most weeks. Chris Godwin is questionable here with a neck injury as well, and that could exacerbate things.
