Impact Players for Giants vs Buccaneers
Hey! Hey! Tampa Bay fans! It’s another week of Buccaneers football and after having that huge win last Thursday night against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers, we head back home to Raymond James Stadium for a game we all have been waiting for. A game against the 2019 number six draft pick in QB Daniel Jones and his New York Giants. This is also the game where the Buccaneers will induct future Pro Football Hall of Famer in Defensive Back Ronde Barber into the Buccaneers Ring of Honor. For this game, my impact players of the week are Buccaneers Defensive Back Vernon Hargreaves III and Giants Running Back Saquon Barkley.

Vernon Hargreaves III Defensive Back
Going into a contract year, Bucs Defensive Back is looking to bounce back to the highly regarded player coming out of Florida. He was being underused in the schemes from Lovie Smith & Dirk Koetter and is looking to be that impact player/leader in the secondary for the Bucs. Under Todd Bowles Defense, he will let VH3 be the press coverage shut down corner working on the opposing teams best WR. So far, VH3 has improved week after week and has helped the Defense big time these first two weeks.

Saquon Barkley Running Back
Barkley, who is one of the games up and coming running backs, had a amazing season in his rookie season with 1,307 yards along with 11 TDs. These numbers pinned him as the number one RB in the NFL in 2018. He will try to match those same numbers this season and stay the top overall RB. He is playing this weeks game with a new QB under center in Daniel Jones who is replacing aging veteran Eli Manning. Barkley will look to take the pressure off of Jones so he can help lead this offense who doesn’t have the services of Golden Tate (four game suspension). According to Yahoo fantasy football, Barkley is projected to have a 24-26 point average against a stout Buccaneers Defense that held Christian McCaffrey to 53 yards last week.
So for us at All Things Buccaneers and Bucs Life News, let’s celebrate the joy of seeing Ronde Barber join his fellow Bucs legends in the Ring of Honor and a huge Buccaneers victory! #GoBucs
