The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the St. Louis Rams in Week 16 at 1:00 ET. The Bucs are in a tailspin, losing four straight games to drop out of the playoff picture. This game has no playoff implications, but there are still some interesting fantasy matchups for the title games. In order to help you set the optimal playoff lineup, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
St. Louis Rams
Danny Amendola is finally healthy and was left off the injury reports this week. His presence will go a long way towards helping Sam Bradford. Bradford and Amendola have high fantasy upside against the Bucs' woeful secondary.
Depits having one of the worst pass defenses in the league, the Bucs have one of the best run defenses in the league, so Steven Jackson is a more risky play than normal. I'd rank him as a low-end RB2 this week.

The Bucs' late-season collapse has coincided with Josh Freeman turning back into a pumpkin. He hit rock bottom with four picks to the Saints last week. If he can't turn things around this week, it could be another long day for Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson owners. Martin wasn't able to do anything with Freeman struggling and has been held under 100 yards in three out of the last four games. Consider him an RB2 this week.
