Buccaneers' Jamel Dean (concussion) ruled out for Week 12 showdown with Chiefs

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Jamel Dean (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12's clash with the Kansas City Chiefs.

What It Means:

Dean's absence is a notable loss for a Tampa Bay defense that will be tasked with slowing down the best offense in the league this Sunday. The 94th pick in 2019's NFL draft is having an impressive sophomore season and is currently graded as Pro Football Focus' 17th cornerback.

The Buccaneers are 3.0-point underdogs against the Chiefs in Week 12. Their implied team total of 26.5 points is the seventh-highest team total on Sunday's main slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map.
