QBRyan Tannehill

Ryan Tannehill

225 pass yards, pass TD, INT

Against a poor Titans team the rookie signal-caller turned in one of his worst performances thus far, finishing with 217 yards and three interceptions. The Bills just dealt with Tom Brady, so Tannehill poses a much smaller threat with just five touchdown passes to his name this season.

RBReggie Bush

Reggie Bush

80 rush yards, rush TD, 2 rec, 22 rec yards

Like most of the Dolphins, Bush had a bad game against the Titans in Week 10. A fumble sent him to the bench, too. Bush should have a big rebound game against a Bills team that ranks last against the run.

RBDaniel Thomas

Daniel Thomas

40 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 30 rec yards

Thomas rushed five times for 21 yards against the Titans in Week 10, but he also caught five passes for 34 yards. Thomas is a nice buy-low candidate, as he is doing well in his limited role while Reggie Bush struggles.

WRBrian Hartline

Brian Hartline

7 rec, 75 yards, rec TD

Hartline was one of the few Dolphins who had a relatively productive day against the Titans, catching eight passes for 79 yards in Week 10. With 186 receiving yards in his past two weeks, he has once again become a nice WR2 in PPR leagues.

WRDavone Bess

Davone Bess

5 rec, 65 yards

Bess caught four passes for 53 yards against the Titans, and he continues to be a low-end fantasy option, even in PPR formats. He still hasn't caught a touchdown pass this year, and he has just one touchdown catch in eight career games against the Bills.

TEAnthony Fasano

Anthony Fasano

1 rec, 12 yards

For the third consecutive week, Fasano caught just one pass. While he scored a touchdown in his past two games against the Bills, those games came with different quarterbacks in different offenses.

KDan Carpenter

Dan Carpenter

3 PATs, FG

Carpenter made his only kick of the day in Week 10 against the Titans, but his 40-yard field goal isn't enough to make fantasy owners happy. He kicked three field goals in his last game against the Bills, but he's too inconsistent to trust right now.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Dolphins had a forgettable afternoon against the Titans, with just one sack, no forced turnovers and 37 points allowed in Week 10. The Bills scored 31 total points in two games against the Dolphins last season, but the Dolphins' defense is an inconsistent fantasy play for now.

QBRyan Fitzpatrick

Ryan Fitzpatrick

245 pass yards, pass TD, INT

Fitzpatrick has thrown for more than 300 yards twice this season, both times against the Patriots, against whom he has thrown six touchdowns. The Harvard graduate threw two touchdowns and five interceptions in two games against the Dolphins in 2011, though.

RBC.J. Spiller

C.J. Spiller

85 rush yards, rush TD, 4 rec, 45 rec yards

With Fred Jackson (concussion) sidelined for Week 11 against Miami, Spiller will get a full complement of carries Thursday. He averaged about 10 yards per touch against the Patriots, and he should be considered an excellent fantasy starter while Jackson is out.

RBTashard Choice

Tashard Choice

22 rush yards, 1 rec, 8 rec yards

Choice should see a few carries in Week 11 against Miami to spell C.J. Spiller, who will be starting in Fred Jackson's (concussion) place. Choice won't have much value as long as Spiller is healthy, though.

WRStevie Johnson

Stevie Johnson

6 rec, 60 yards, rec TD

Johnson caught six passes for a team-high 86 yards at New England in Week 10. In his past four games against the Dolphins, his Week 11 opponent, he has 16 catches for 207 yards and one touchdown.

WRDonald Jones

Donald Jones

6 rec, 70 yards

Jones continues to impress as a third-year NFL wide receiver. He caught six passes for 74 yards and a touchdown at New England in Week 10. Over his past three games, he has 16 catches for 186 yards and two touchdowns, and he's worth using as a WR3 in Week 11 against Miami.

TEScott Chandler

Scott Chandler

5 rec, 45 yards

Chandler caught his first touchdown pass since Week 4 -- also against the Patriots -- and he now has 10 catches for 131 yards in his past three games. He's worth using as a low-end fantasy starter against Miami, against whom he caught five passes for 71 yards in their lone 2011 meeting.

KRian Lindell

Rian Lindell

2 PATs, FG

Lindell had one field goal and four extra points in Week 10 at New England, but his production has been sporadic over the entire season. That makes him an iffy fantasy starter in Week 11 against Miami.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

As expected, the Bills got torched once again by the Patriots in Week 10, allowing 37 points. The Dolphins come to Buffalo in Week 11, and the Bills allowed last year's Miami team to score 65 points against them in two games. Look elsewhere for fantasy help.
