Edwards had another poor game in the Week 11 loss to the Browns, throwing for only 148 yards and a TD with three INTs. He did rush for a score but his inability to raise the level of the passing game against a poor defense has become an ongoing trend. The Chiefs give up 237.1 passing yards a game but there's no reason to believe Edwards will take advantage of the matchup. Find another QB with stronger upside this week.
Lynch had easily his best game of the season last week. He rushed 23 times for a season-high 119 yards. He also caught a career-high 10 receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Browns. Lynch owners have been waiting for that kind of a game all season long and he finally delivered. He gets a tasty matchup this week against a Chiefs' run defense that allows 165.4 yards a game. Lynch looks like the switch has been flipped on so he's a strong start this week.
Jackson got in on the fun last week too, rushing for 60 yards although he surprisingly didn't catch a pass. He's very involved in the offense and at times last week ran harder than Lynch. The Chiefs have struggled badly against the run all season long so if you need to dig deep for a RB3 in larger leagues, Jackson has plenty of upside this week.
Evans failed to catch a pass last week for the first time in 67 games last week. Edwards' lack of talent is simply killing him. Even though this is a great matchup Evans is just a WR3 right now with his QB playing poorly. He's talented enough to deliver, but there is plenty of risk now so tread carefully with Evans this week.
Royal's up-and-down season continued last week as he caught only one pass against the Browns. He has only two receptions in his past two games and despite the promising matchup he's a poor fantasy option this week.
Lindell has had a fine season but his chance to be a hero went awry last week when he missed a game-winning FG against the Browns in the closing seconds. For the season, he has now made 19-of-24 FG attempts. This is a good matchup, however, so Lindell has a chance to do well. Start him if you normally would.
After doing nothing of significance for several weeks, the Bills busted out in this category last week, getting a kickoff return for a TD from Leodis McKelvin. They continue to struggle to get pressure on the QB and force turnovers and with Tyler Thigpen playing well, they aren't a strong option this week. Keep them benched.
Thigpen continues to play well. He didn't go off in Week 12 against the Saints, but he was solid, passing for 235 yards and two TDs. He has now thrown eight TDs in his last four games and has thrown for 235 yards or more in three of them. The Bills give up 202.4 passing yards a game but the Chiefs' passing game is playing at a high level so don't hesitate to keep starting Thigpen as he will continue to find a way to deliver.
Johnson had a solid return last week, rushing for 67 yards on 19 carries and catching one pass in the loss to the Saints. The fact he got 20 touches in his first game back after missing four games was very encouraging. The Bills give up 109.6 rushing yards a game so they can be run on and this could be a game which sees the Chiefs utilize LJ more. He's a rock-solid RB2 this week as he looks to be back in the team's good graces.
Bowe had another productive game last week, catching seven passes with a pair of touchdowns in the loss to New Orleans. He now has three TDs in his past three games and remains one of the more unheralded WRs in fantasy this year. The Bills' secondary was torched by Braylon Edwards last Monday night and Bowe should have no trouble working them over this week. He remains a strong start.
After his breakthrough Week 11 performance, Bradley returned to earth last week, catching three passes for 54 yards against the Saints. It was a disappointing performance given the matchup but on the bright side, he was targeted eight times and reached the 50-yard level for the third straight game. He's very involved in this passing game so he remains a good reach as a WR3 and a great option as a WR4. Start him there this week.
Gonzalez caught five passes last week despite having to leave the game a few times due to minor injuries. He'll be good to go this week and continues to be one of fantasy's premier options at the TE position. As long as he's able to play, he should be a fixture in your starting lineup.
Barth delivered nicely for his owners last week, totaling eight points on a pair of FGs and two extra points. The Chiefs' offense is clicking so he has plenty of potential although this could be a game which sees Kansas City find the end zone when it reaches the red zone.
The Chiefs continue to struggle defensively. Drew Brees tore them up last week and they rank last in the league in total defense while giving up 27.3 points per game. The Bills' offense has been pedestrian but that doesn't make KC a good fantasy option this week. The chances of them rising up with a huge week are roughly the same as the chances of me hooking up with Hilary Duff. It isn't happening, folks.
