The Bengals had four interceptions Authentic Ryan Smith Jersey , six sacks and a late 18-point lead. to salvage a win that was more relief than anything.Jessie Bates returned Jameis Winston's fourth interception for a touchdown Sunday, and the Bengals overcame Ryan Fitzpatrick's late rally for a 37-34 victory that left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a question at quarterback.The Bengals (5-3) put together their only drive of the second half to pull it out. Andy Dalton had completions of 23 and 9 yards to A.J. Green that got them in range for Randy Bullock's 44-yard field goal on the final play."A win is a win, but this one feels a little weird," Bengals linebacker Preston Brown said.Weird all around.Cincinnati was coming off a 45-10 loss at Kansas City on Sunday night that was their second-worst drubbing in coach Marvin Lewis' 16 seasons. The Bengals gave up 576 yards to the Bucs (3-4) and managed only 95 yards in the second half — 50 on the final drive."We're not very happy with how we performed," Bates said.Tampa Bay's biggest problem earlier this season was its porous defense, which led to a change of coordinators. This time, their quarterback play was their downfall.Winston opened the season on suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. He's had seven turnovers in the past two games, creating an opening for Fitzpatrick to reclaim the job that was his at season's start.Winston was benched after matching his career high with four interceptions, the third time he's thrown so many in his career. He has thrown 10 interceptions, one fewer than all last season."I'm definitely the reason we came up short with this game, and I know that I have to fix it," said Winston, who was 18 of 35 for 276 yards with five sacks.Winston went to the bench, and Fitzpatrick pulled Tampa Bay even.He threw a 72-yard touchdown to Mike Evans , his fifth TD pass of at least 50 yards this season — most in the NFL. He also led an 88-yard drive to the tying score, hitting O.J. Howard for an 18-yard touchdown and completing another pass for the conversion with 1:05 left.Fitzpatrick finished 11 of 15 for 194 yards and a passer rating of 154.9 that's just shy of perfect.Now, the Bucs have to decide which one will lead the NFL's top-ranked offense."Today is not the day I need to decide that," coach Dirk Koetter said.DeSean Jackson caught a 60-yard touchdown pass that moved him ahead of Jerry Rice for the NFL record. He has 24 TDs of at least 60 yards. It also was Jackson's 29th career TD of at least 50 yards , tying Randy Moss for second-most since the 1970 merger behind Rice's 36.FAST STARTCincinnati couldn't hold a 27-6 lead set up by a big first half. Joe Mixon ran for 114 yards in the half and scored on runs of 1 and 8 yards. Tyler Boyd had six catches for 112 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown.LOTS OF INTsWinston has thrown at least two interceptions in five straight games, tied for the most since 1990. His 13 interceptions over that span are tied with Fitzpatrick for the most in a five-game stretch over the past five seasons.LOTS OF EMPTY SEATSThe game drew 45 http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline ... sen-jersey ,134 fans, the smallest crowd at Paul Brown Stadium since 41,273 showed up for a 23-16 win over Arizona on Dec. 24, 2011.BLOWING IN THE WINDBoth kickers missed extra-point attempts in a gusty, swirling wind.NO SAD SACKBuccaneers end Jason Pierre-Paul had a pair of sacks. He's had at least one in six straight games, tying Simeon Rice for the most consecutive games with a sack in team history.INJURIESBuccaneers: RB Ronald Jones II suffered a hamstring injury in the second half.Bengals: G Clint Boling hurt his back late in the first half. DE Carl Lawson hurt his right knee, reportedly an ACL tear. CB Dre Kirkpatrick left in the third quarter with an Achilles injury that kept him out of practice, but he returned.UP NEXTBuccaneers: Play at Carolina on Sunday, finishing a stretch of four road games out of five.Bengals: Have their bye week, followed by a home game against the Saints. A majority of fantasy football research tends to focus on running backs, wide receivers and quarterbacks. But the other three positions are equally as crucial and can ultimately help you win your league. Knowing the right time to grab a tight end and when to keep waiting is key, as is your weekly strategy for defenses and even kickers.Tight end is deep, with more than 20 players that could realistically finish the season inside the top 10 at the position. However, there are a few sharp drops in talent that make it better to consider drafting tight ends based on tiers.The upper echelon is clear with Rob Gronkowski of New England, Travis Kelce of Kansas City and Zach Ertz of Philadelphia. In order to grab one of them, though, you need to be prepared to burn an early pick. Gronkowski offers upside that is head and shoulders above everyone else, but he also hasn't played a full season since 2011. Kelce is coming off back-to-back years with over 1,000 yards and 80-plus receptions, along with a career high eight TDs. He was locked in with Alex Smith, so the QB change to Patrick Mahomes could hurt his outlook. Zach Ertz has been a consistent threat with at least 70 catches and 800 yards in three straight seasons. He doubled his career high in TDs and further red zone attention could push him past Gronkowski and Kelce this year.The second tier has more uncertainty and not quite as much upside Womens Chris Godwin Jersey , but will still get you a "set it-and-forget it" type of player. Jimmy Graham switched from one great QB to probably the best in the game with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay. He should continue to see a massive amount of red zone work but his production between the 20s will ultimately decide whether he's an elite weekly option this year or a TD-reliant back-end starter. Giants tight end Evan Engram took advantage of Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall injuries to turn in an impressive rookie season with 64 catches, 722 yards and six touchdowns. He could end up the second receiving option this season for New York.Tennessee's Delanie Walker has been as solid as they come over the past four years, especially in point-per-reception leagues. Carolina's Greg Olsen is coming off an injury-riddled season, but do not forget about the consistent TE1 production he provided in previous seasons. Minnesota's Kyle Rudolph should be one of Kirk Cousins' favorite targets, particularly in the red zone.If you wait on the TE position, you can target potential breakout candidates Trey Burton (Chicago), George Kittle (San Francisco), David Njoku (Cleveland) or O.J. Howard (Tampa Bay). Washington's oft-injured Jordan Reed is more name than game at this point but he could be a viable weapon for Alex Smith. The same can be said about Tyler Eifert in Cincinnati.Veterans Jared Cook (Oakland), Charles Clay (Buffalo), Ben Watson (New Orleans) and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Jacksonville) may not be exciting, high upside selections, but they all could finish as starting-caliber options. Jack Doyle could as well in Indianapolis, if Eric Ebron doesn't eat into his upside. Streamers and deep leaguers that waited too long can also consider Ricky Seals-Jones (Arizona), Vance McDonald (Pittsburgh), Hayden Hurst (Baltimore), Nick Vannett (Seattle) and Austin Hooper (Atlanta). That's a good amount of upside for going almost 30 players deep at the position.DEFENSEStreaming defenses based on matchups is a strong method if you are active on the waiver wire. This is a great way to exploit weak offenses and cycle through available defenses on an as-needed basis. You should know going in that there is more legwork required if you go this route. It is also a great strategy that allows you to focus your draft capital on position players while waiting until the final rounds before investing in a defense. The Saints are home for two games against the Buccaneers (sans Jameis Winston) and the Browns to open the season. The Lions, Titans and Ravens also have attractive opening weekend matchups, though you may need to grab the latter two units before the last round.If you feel more comfortable riding one consistently good defense throughout the year regardless of matchup, you may be forced to consider taking a top option earlier than the 15th round. The Jaguars defense rose to prominence last season and they should be just as dominant in 2018. The Vikings and Eagles also have the personnel to stay among the league's elite fantasy defenses. The Texans should rebound after an injury-filled season and the Packers beefed up their defense with impact veteran and draft day additions. The Patriots are expected to rebound from a mediocre season to be a top 10 defense. Green Bay and New England are not quite in the same grouping as the others mentioned here and can be nabbed if you pass on the very elite defenses.KICKERSWhile it is often debated whether kickers should be eliminated from fantasy rosters, a majority of leagues still require owners to start one each week. There is too much variance from week to week in what becomes a gamble to determine which kicker to play. The best way to address the position is to wait until the last round before drafting one. Better yet, take a high upside position player in the last round and then cut someone from your roster prior to Week 1 for a kicker 鈥?if it's allowable under your league rules. Depending on when your draft occurs Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey , this buys you more time with your roster before deciding who needs to go.When selecting your kicker for the year (or the week), a general rule is to focus on high-powered offenses. Yes, there will be outliers to this, but it will help you more often than not. If you are looking for the cream of the kicker crop, Greg Zuerlein, Stephen Gostkowski, Justin Tucker, Matt Bryant and Will Lutz are great bets. Robbie Gould, Matt Prater, Jake Elliott and Chris Boswell are viable options as well. Otherwise, start streaming with a kicker that plays against a weak defense and cycle through the waiver wire as needed.ROTOEXPERTS TOP 15 TIGHT ENDSRob Gronkowski, New England PatriotsZach Ertz, Philadelphia EaglesTravis Kelce, Kansas City ChiefsEvan Engram, New York GiantsJimmy Graham, Green Bay PackersJack Doyle, Indianapolis ColtsGreg Olsen, Carolina PanthersDelanie Walker, Tennessee TitansGeorge Kittle, San Francisco 49ersKyle Rudolph, Minnesota VikingsJordan Reed Womens Vita Vea Jersey , Washington RedskinsRicky Seals-Jones, Arizona CardinalsCameron Brate, Tampa Bay BuccaneersTrey Burton, Chicago BearsAustin Hooper, Atlanta FalconsTOP 15 DEFENSESJacksonville JaguarsPhiladelphia EaglesLos Angeles RamsLos Angeles ChargersMinnesota VikingsPittsburgh SteelersDenver BroncosBaltimore RavensSeattle SeahawksNew England PatriotsKansas City ChiefsCarolina PanthersDetroit LionsChicago BearsNew Orleans SaintsTOP 15 KICKERSStephen Gostkowski, New England PatriotsJustin Tucker, Baltimore RavensAdam Vinatieri, Indianapolis ColtsJosh Lambo, Jacksonville JaguarsChris Boswell, Pittsburgh SteelersWil Lutz, New Orleans SaintsJake Elliott, Philadelphia EaglesMason Crosby, Green Bay PackersCaleb Sturgis, Los Angeles ChargersMatt Bryant, Atlanta FalconsKai Forbath, Minnesota VikingsMatt Prater, Detroit LionsRobbie Gould, San Francisco 49ersPhil Dawson, Arizona CardinalsRyan Succop, Tennessee Titans
