QBChad Henne

Chad Henne

238 pass yards, 3 pass TDs, INT

Henne is playing some of the best football of his career (99.6 QB Rating), nearly beating the Texans and actually beating the Titans the past two weeks. The Bills provide Henne with another favorable matchup, as they rank among the top 10 in touchdown passes allowed.

RBRashad Jennings

Rashad Jennings

61 rush yards

With Maurice Jones-Drew still nursing a bum foot and Jalen Parmele on IR (groin), the Jaguars have little choice but to hand the ball to Jennings, who has averaged just 2.8 yards per carry this season. Fantasy owners, on the other hand, have plenty of other options.

WRJustin Blackmon

Justin Blackmon

6 rec, 86 yards, rec TD

All of a sudden Blackmon is relevant for fantasy owners, having averaged five catches over the past four games and having scored in three of those contests.

WRCecil Shorts

Cecil Shorts

3 rec, 60 yards, rec TD

Jacksonville's big-play magnet (20.8 yards per catch) will try to take advantage of a Buffalo secondary giving up 7.3 yards per attempt. Shorts has caught a touchdown in each of his last three games.

TEMarcedes Lewis

Marcedes Lewis

4 rec, 38 yards, rec TD

Opposing tight ends have found the end zone three times versus Buffalo in the past four weeks. Lewis has found new life since Chad Henne began taking snaps under center.

KJosh Scobee

Josh Scobee

3 PATs, FG

Another excerpt from "101 reasons why Josh Scobee is not a worthy fantasy kicker” ... No. 94: In December games over the last four seasons (17 games) he has averaged just 4.6 points per game.

DEFENSE

2 INTs, 2 Sacks

The Jaguars still rank among the bottom five in both yards (410.5) and points (28.0) allowed. Last week they showed some promise against Tennessee, but fantasy owners cannot take this unit seriously, not even against lowly Buffalo.

QBRyan Fitzpatrick

Ryan Fitzpatrick

248 pass yards, pass TD, 2 INTs, 14 rush yards

Fitzpatrick could use a confidence boost after throwing just three touchdowns in his last four starts. Don't expect the Jaguars to give him one. They gave up a late passing score to Jake Locker last week, and in the past month have kept Matthew Stafford and Andrew Luck out of the end zone.

RBC.J. Spiller

C.J. Spiller

81 rush yards, rush TD, 4 rec, 30 rec yards

There are certain sets and situations where Fred Jackson is the preferred back, but Buffalo knows it is most successful when it puts the ball in Spiller's hands. Look no further than two weeks ago, when he carried 22 times and caught three balls and Buffalo beat Miami.

RBFred Jackson

Fred Jackson

36 rush yards, 2 rec, 21 rec yards

Jackson touched the ball seven times last week, compared to 15 touches for C.J. Spiller. Fantasy owners can expect a similar breakdown moving forward.

WRStevie Johnson

Stevie Johnson

5 rec, 84 yards, rec TD

Johnson has caught six passes in each of the past three weeks. What he hasn't done, however, is reach the end zone. He'll end his drought against a Jaguars secondary that he burned for two scores when he faced them last.

WRDonald Jones

Donald Jones

3 rec, 43 yards

The Bills' passing game is barely generating enough production to satisfy one fantasy receiver, let alone two. And even when Ryan Fitzpatrick is at his best, Jones is nothing more than a flex option. You can do better.

TEScott Chandler

Scott Chandler

3 rec, 31 yards

The Bills have completed just one pass to Chandler from within the opponents' 10-yard line in the past eight games. This is the biggest reason why he hasn't emerged as a viable weapon for fantasy owners.

KRian Lindell

Rian Lindell

2 PATs, FG

Lindell has scored more than half of the Bills' points in three of the past four games, and yet he's been an average fantasy kicker at best in those weeks.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Bills have not been an attractive fantasy defense this season, and after watching Jacksonville light up the scoreboard the past two weeks there is even more reason to steer clear of Buffalo.
