Falcons vs Bucs 2015: Who to Watch in Tampa Bay

New, comments

You really want to watch? Well, alright then. Here's who you're keeping an eye on this week.

Devin Hester, WR/Special Teams

It's been nearly a year since we've seen ol' Devin Hester in action, and it comes at a time that the Falcons' special teams could use the boost. The offense could use some spice as well after struggling mightily for the last several weeks, but it'll be due to Hankerson's absences that Hester might see legitimate time on offense. Here's to hoping Hester is fully recovered.

Devonta Freeman, Running Back

I'm tickled to death that I can put him on the list. The Falcons' run game took a massive toll when it lost Freeman against the Colts two weeks ago, forcing a young Tevin Coleman to take the reins. That hasn't gone ideally by any stretch, so getting Freeman back will undoubtedly free the offense up to its usual attack. Freeman has shown the ability to be a workhorse all season long, and should get back at it this Sunday.

Mike Person, Center

After becoming notorious for terrible snaps, Mike Person has recently cleaned up his act. He's not a long-term option, but he has regained my trust for for the remainder of the 2015 season. He'll have an easier match-up with Tampa's Gerald McCoy watching from the sidelines, so I'm expecting a cleaner pocket and bigger running lanes from the interior this week.

As always, who are you itching to watch this week? Let us know down below.
