Mike Glennon looking like a solid fantasy option surprisingly

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The Buccaneers quarterback tried his best to compete with the Falcons' normally potent offense in Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon completed 26 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7. Glennon's effort marked the second week in a row he's thrown for at least 250 yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: After only two games as a starter, Glennon knows what works best in moving the Buccaneers' offense down the field. The best thing to do is to throw the ball to your top wide receiver, Vincent Jackson.

Jackson caught both of Glennon's touchdown passes, making his young quarterback look good. He caught Glennon's first touchdown pass in the second quarter with one hand for a spectacular 59-yard score.

What might be worrisome for fantasy owners of any Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver is that no other receiver managed more than 32 yards in the game besides Jackson. After Sunday's performance, it looks like Glennon may indeed be worth a plug and play look in deeper fantasy leagues.

Fantasy owners should be wary of starting him in Week 8 though, as the Bucs take on a solid Carolina Panthers defense.
