Fantasy Player Projections
Land Shark Stadium | Sunday, October 04 | 4:05 p.m. EST (CBS)
Dolphins 17, Bills 10
Pos. Player Projection
QB Trent Edwards
225 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INTEdwards seemed tentative and conservative in Week 3 against the Saints and the results were not very good. He'll need to lighten up and take some shots down the field to be worth a fantasy start.
RB Marshawn Lynch
4 rec, 40 rec yards, 80 rush yardsThe do-everything back returns to the fold after serving a three-game suspension. He expects to play Sunday against Miami, but you'll need to monitor the situation to figure out just how much we can expect to see him.
RB Fred Jackson
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 25 rush yardsJackson has shone in Lynch's absense, but should return to a supporting role upon his return.
WR Terrell Owens
4 rec, 70 yards, 1 TDThe deafening silence of T.O. intensifies as the Bills struggle. Buffalo coach Dick Jauron insists the team will try to get T.O. more balls thrown his way.
WR Lee Evans
3 rec, 35 yardsMany thought Evans would benefit from the addition of T.O. but that's not what seems to be happening. Evans has caught just eight balls for 89 yards and one touchdown in three games.
WR Josh Reed
3 rec, 30 yardsReed is growing in the No. 3 wideout role quite nicely in Buffalo. But the value to your fantasy team is very small.
TE Derek Fine
4 rec, 30 yardsFine enjoyed a modest breakout in Week 3 with five catches for 34 yards ... but those numbers are hardly fantasy worthy.
K Rian Lindell
1 PAT, 1 FGLindell followed up a 15-point outing with just one lousy PAT in Week 4. The lesson? Find yourself a more consistent kicker.
2 sacks, 2 INTGood matchup here and Buffalo's defense is better than advertised.
Pos. Player Projection
QB Chad Henne
175 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 2 INTWith Chad Pennington out for the season, it's Henne's turn to shine.
RB Ronnie Brown
3 rec, 35 rec yards, 75 rush yards, 1 rush TDBrown is experiencing success in the Wildcat formation and Miami's base offense. He's worth a start in any fantasy format.
RB Ricky Williams
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 40 rush yardsWilliams is a deep flex option at best, despite the occasion touchdown or brilliant play out of the Wildcat formation.
WR Ted Ginn Jr.
5 rec, 80 yards, 1 TDWeek 2: 11 catches fpr 108 yards. Week 3: Zero catches with two dropped passes. That's pretty much everything you need to know.
WR Davone Bess
3 rec, 35 yardsWorkmanlike attitude. Modest production. Minimal fantasy value.
TE Anthony Fasano
1 rec, 5 yardsNo value whatsoever. Stay far away.
K Dan Carpenter
2 PATs, 1 FGCarpenter just doesn't make much sense when there's plenty of better kickers on the open market.
2 sacks, 1 INTOne of just three NFL teams without an interception, the Dolphins have created just one turnover (a forced fumble). Go elsewhere for a defense.
