QBRyan Fitzpatrick

Ryan Fitzpatrick

205 pass yards, pass TD, INT

The Bills threw the ball just 19 times against the Chiefs in Week 2, but that was still enough for Fitzpatrick to pass for 178 yards and two touchdowns. While he's not yet worth starting in fantasy, he is someone to consider in upcoming bye weeks.

RBC.J. Spiller

C.J. Spiller

125 rush yards, rush TD, 4 rec, 25 rec yards

With Fred Jackson sidelined, Spiller scored twice and rushed for 123 yards against the Chiefs in Week 2. With two 100-yard games already, Spiller looks like he'll cost Jackson more touches even when Jackson in healthy. Spiller is a must-start running back until Jackson returns.

RBTashard Choice

Tashard Choice

25 rush yards, 1 rec, 15 rec yards

With eight carries, Choice rushed for 37 yards against the Chiefs in Week 2. He'll continue to be the backup tailback for the Bills while Fred Jackson's knee heals.

WRStevie Johnson

Stevie Johnson

6 rec, 75 yards, rec TD

Stevie Johnson has averaged three catches for about 55 yards and a touchdown in two games this season. He started last season with a touchdown in the first three games, and we like him to score in Week 3 at Cleveland, as well.

WRDonald Jones

Donald Jones

3 rec, 35 yards

With David Nelson out for the season, Jones was expected to see a larger role. Unfortunately, the Bills only completed 10 passes against the Chiefs, and Nelson caught just one -- for minus-one yard.

TEScott Chandler

Scott Chandler

3 rec, 45 yards

Chandler is one of the reasons many fantasy writers preah caution about drafting tight ends too high. He went undrafted in most formats, and he now has a touchdown in both weeks. Consider adding him if your starter is slacking.

KRian Lindell

Rian Lindell

2 PATs, FG

In Week 1's loss to the Jets, Lindell didn't get to attempt a field goal. It was more of the same in Week 2, although the Bills were on the other end of a pounding. Lindell has nine extra points and no field goals.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Bills D/ST came through with a big day against the Chiefs in Week 2. With five sacks, three forced turnovers and an 88-yard punt return for a touchdown, the Bills have become fantasy worthy for Week 3, with their Week 1 debacle against the Jets behind them.

QBBrandon Weeden

Brandon Weeden

205 pass yards, pass TD, INT

Rookies fared much better in Week 2, including both of the Browns’ top 2012 picks. Weeden had one of the worst NFL debuts in history in Week 1, but he came back with 322 passing yards and two touchdowns in Week 2. The Bills have allowed five touchdown passes so far, but Weeden has a way to go before he's fantasy starter worthy.

RBTrent Richardson

Trent Richardson

90 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 35 rec yards

"Whew!" said every Richardson owner in fantasy football. After looking tentative and overwhelmed in Week 1, Richardson came back with 109 rushing yards last Sunday. He also became the first Browns rookie to rush for 100 yards and score on the ground and in the air in the same game.

RBBrandon Jackson

Brandon Jackson

15 rush yards

Expected to work as the third-down back for the Browns, Jackson was inactive for Week 2. Whether it's him or Montario Hardesty working as Trent Richardson's backup, neither should do much against the Bills.

WRGreg Little

Greg Little

5 rec, 55 yards, rec TD

Little caught five passes for 57 yards and a touchdown at Cincinnati in Week 2, but with a rookie quarterback, Little's output is expected to be inconsistent.

WRMohamed Massaquoi

Mohamed Massaquoi

4 rec, 50 yards

Massaquoi led the Browns with 90 yards receiving on five catches at Cincinnati in Week 2. It's tough to rely on him though, as the Browns' No. 2 receiver relying on a rookie quarterback.

TEBenjamin Watson

Benjamin Watson

3 rec, 25 yards

Watson caught one pass for 27 yards in Week 2. He's not expected to do much damage against the Bills in Week 3.

KPhil Dawson

Phil Dawson

2 PATs, 2 FGs

The Cleveland kicker was good on both field goal attempts (including a 50-yarder) and all three extra points in Week 2. This offense is going to be inconsistent this season, making Dawson a tough kicker to rely on in fantasy.

DEFENSE

INT, Sack

The Browns allowed Andy Dalton to throw for 318 yards and three touchdowns in Week 2. The Browns got six sacks, but no interceptions. The Bills stunk offensively in Week 1 before a big rebound game in Week 2. The Browns D/ST is not yet worth owning.
