Buffalo Bills
vs
Baltimore Ravens
Ralph Wilson Stadium | Sunday, Sep. 29 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

Baltimore Ravens

    1. Joe Flacco
    2. Joe
      Flacco
      QB
    3. PASS YDS256
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    The lack of weapons in Baltimore is really starting to show in Flacco's stats. I can't recommend him as a fantasy starter, and he's just a fringe option in two-QB leagues.

    1. Bernard Pierce
    2. Bernard
      Pierce
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS89
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS28
    6. REC TD0

    Pierce picked up 65 yards and a TD on 24 carries with Ray Rice on the sideline. He should get the start again this week.

    1. Torrey Smith
    2. Torrey
      Smith
      WR
    3. REC YDS104
    4. REC TD1

    Smith had another strong yardage day, catching five passes for 92 yards. In an offense where he has to make plays for the team to succeed, he could sleepwalk to 80 yards per game.

    1. Marlon Brown
    2. Marlon
      Brown
      WR
    3. REC YDS65
    4. REC TD0

    Brown had just three targets last week and cannot be trusted as anything more than a depth guy.

    1. Dallas Clark
    2. Dallas
      Clark
      TE
    3. REC YDS27
    4. REC TD0

    Clark caught four of the seven passes thrown his way last week for 47 yards. The opportunity for him is there in this offense, but he'll have to prove he's still capable.

    1. Justin Tucker
    2. Justin
      Tucker
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG2

    The inability of the Baltimore offense to sustain drives in Houston's territory last week resulted in a huge game for Tucker.

    1. Baltimore Ravens
    2. PTS ALLOWED17
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    Baltimore shut down Matt Schaub, limiting him to 5.5 YPA, and also kept the Houston run game quiet. They should have another nice game this week.

Buffalo Bills

    1. EJ Manuel
    2. EJ
      Manuel
      QB
    3. PASS YDS268
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS37
    7. RUSH TD0

    Manuel struggled against a strong Jets defense last week. It doesn't get any easier for him this week with the Ravens coming to town.

    1. C.J. Spiller
    2. C.J.
      Spiller
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS61
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS25
    6. REC TD0

    Spiller left last week's game with a thigh injury, though it isn't considered serious. He should start this week.

    1. Fred Jackson
    2. Fred
      Jackson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS52
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS30
    6. REC TD0

    Jackson had 109 yards from scrimmage last week and appears to have cemented a significant role in the offense, making him flex worthy in certain weeks.

    1. Stevie Johnson
    2. Stevie
      Johnson
      WR
    3. REC YDS98
    4. REC TD0

    Another week, 13 more targets for Johnson. I would be shocked if he finishes the season outside the top 20 receivers.

    1. Robert Woods
    2. Robert
      Woods
      WR
    3. REC YDS61
    4. REC TD0

    Woods caught just two passes, but had 10 targets. Whether the incompletions were on him or EJ Manuel, that number is hard to ignore.

    1. Scott Chandler
    2. Scott
      Chandler
      TE
    3. REC YDS47
    4. REC TD0

    Chandler had his first big game of the year, catching five passes for 79 yards and a TD. I do not recommend giving him a go this week.

    1. Dan Carpenter
    2. Dan
      Carpenter
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG1

    The Bills simply don't do enough scoring to consider Carpenter in fantasy leagues.

    1. Buffalo Bills
    2. PTS ALLOWED20
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    The Jets -- THE JETS! -- lit up the Bills, with Geno Smith throwing for 331 yards and Bilal Powell running for another 149. Stay away.
