Both teams share a bye Week 11

The NFL officially postponed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Miami Dolphins tilt until Week 11.

With Hurricane Irma gaining steam as it moves toward South Florida, the league announced the matchup will be moved from Sunday to Sunday, Nov. 19. Both the Bucs and Dolphins had a bye in Week 11.

The news means that Miami and Tampa will play 16 straight games to close out the season. (NFL.com)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Mother nature wins again. Moving the game to Pittsburgh or Philadelphia was discussed but in the end, fantasy owners of Jay Cutler, Jay Ajayi, Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, etc need to find other options.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Tannehill is expected to have surgery on his ACL very soon which should allow him enough recovery time to be ready for the 2018 season. Jay Cutler takes over with a clear path to being the starter the entire season. His fantasy value is similar to Tannehill’s as a low-end QB2.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Ryan Tannehill will almost certainly miss half the season – if not all of it – after reinjuring his knee last Thursday. Cutler reunites with HC Adam Gase, who guided the quarterback to his most efficient season while both were with the Chicago Bears in 2015. It’s good news for the fantasy fortunes of DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills as well, as Cutler has a strong arm. Cutler figures to be little more than an uninspiring QB2 in fantasy this season, however.
