Buffalo Bills
vs
Cincinnati Bengals
Ralph Wilson Stadium | Sunday, Oct. 13 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

Cincinnati Bengals

    1. Andy Dalton
    2. Andy
      Dalton
      QB
    3. PASS YDS312
    4. PASS TD3
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    It hasn't been pretty for Dalton this year, but the Buffalo defense has been among the most friendly to QBs, allowing 23.3 fantasy points per game.

    1. Giovani Bernard
    2. Giovani
      Bernard
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS67
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS42
    6. REC TD0

    Bernard looked great again, picking up 62 yards on just 13 carries, but he had a crucial fumble late that gave the Patriots one last chance to tie the game.

    1. BenJarvus Green-Ellis
    2. BenJarvus
      Green-Ellis
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS54
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Green-Ellis got himself back in the game plan last week, carrying the ball 19 times for 67 yards and a score. There could be plenty of work to go around this week with Cincinnati likely to be nursing a big lead.

    1. A.J. Green
    2. A.J.
      Green
      WR
    3. REC YDS126
    4. REC TD2

    You know he has to go off sooner or later. This will be the week.

    1. Mohamed Sanu
    2. Mohamed
      Sanu
      WR
    3. REC YDS53
    4. REC TD0

    Sanu only had two targets a week ago, but there will be a whole lot more passes to go around this week.

    1. Tyler Eifert
    2. Tyler
      Eifert
      TE
    3. REC YDS38
    4. REC TD1

    Eifert caught five of his seven targets for 53 yards last week. He's still on the outside of the starting class until we see more.

    1. Jermaine Gresham
    2. Jermaine
      Gresham
      TE
    3. REC YDS35
    4. REC TD0

    Gresham caught all four of his targets last week, but they went for just 24 yards. He simply doesn't get thrown the ball frequently enough to be a fantasy option.

    1. Mike Nugent
    2. Mike
      Nugent
      K
    3. PAT4
    4. FG1

    Nugent made both of his field goal attempts last week, but I see the Bengals defense finding the end zone more often than settling for field goals against the Bills.

    1. Cincinnati Bengals
    2. PTS ALLOWED6
    3. SACKS4
    4. INT3
    5. TD0

    What a performance by the Bengals a week ago, holding the Patriots to six points and sacking Tom Brady four times. They'll build on that in a huge way against the Bills and QB Thad Lewis, who was just signed off the practice squad.

Buffalo Bills

    1. Thaddeus Lewis
    2. Thaddeus
      Lewis
      QB
    3. PASS YDS167
    4. PASS TD0
    5. INT3
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    The former practice squad QB will start in place of the injured EJ Manuel. You don't want anything to do with this.

    1. C.J. Spiller
    2. C.J.
      Spiller
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS52
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS23
    6. REC TD0

    Spiller got just eight carries while nursing an injured ankle last week, but he notched a 54-yard TD run. He's the only Bill I'd start this week.

    1. Fred Jackson
    2. Fred
      Jackson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS34
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS8
    6. REC TD0

    Jackson picked up 53 yards and two scores on 17 carries last week, but who do you trust on this offense with Thad Lewis at the helm.

    1. Stevie Johnson
    2. Stevie
      Johnson
      WR
    3. REC YDS52
    4. REC TD0

    Johnson has had two staight down weeks, and now Thad Lewis takes over for the injured EJ Manuel. Keep Johnson on your bench.

    1. Robert Woods
    2. Robert
      Woods
      WR
    3. REC YDS38
    4. REC TD0

    Woods got a whopping 13 targets last week, catching five of them for 64 yards, but he'd be a risky start with Thad Lewis under center.

    1. Scott Chandler
    2. Scott
      Chandler
      TE
    3. REC YDS25
    4. REC TD0

    Chandler caught four balls for 49 yards. He wasn't a starter with EJ Manuel, but it's too early to know whether Thad Lewis relies on tight ends.

    1. Dan Carpenter
    2. Dan
      Carpenter
      K
    3. PAT0
    4. FG2

    Carpenter made his only field goal attempt last week, a shot from 52 yards out. This could be a decent week to play him with the strong Cincinnati defense in town.

    1. Buffalo Bills
    2. PTS ALLOWED31
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Bills held the Browns to fewer than 300 yards last week, but it'll be a whole lot tougher when the Bengals come to town.
