Miami Dolphins
vs
Buffalo Bills
Sun Life Stadium | Sunday, Oct. 20 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

Buffalo Bills

    1. Thaddeus Lewis
    2. Thaddeus
      Lewis
      QB
    3. PASS YDS191
    4. PASS TD0
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Lewis impressed in his first start a week ago, throwing for 216 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions before being hampered by a foot injury. Whether he starts or the newly signed Matt Flynn, neither belongs in your lineup.

    1. C.J. Spiller
    2. C.J.
      Spiller
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS62
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS28
    6. REC TD0

    Spiller and Fred Jackson each carried the ball 10 times last week, with Spiller picking up 55 yards to Jackson's 35. I don't like either this week, as I expect Miami to lead comfortably throughout.

    1. Fred Jackson
    2. Fred
      Jackson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS39
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS15
    6. REC TD0

    Jackson and C.J. Spiller split the carries right down the middle again, with Spiller picking up 55 yards to Jackson's 35. The Miami defense has allowed the third most points to running backs this year, but I think the Bills will be chasing too many points to run the ball effectively.

    1. Stevie Johnson
    2. Stevie
      Johnson
      WR
    3. REC YDS66
    4. REC TD0

    Johnson missed last week's game due to a back injury and a death in his family. He'll play this week.

    1. Robert Woods
    2. Robert
      Woods
      WR
    3. REC YDS42
    4. REC TD0

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

    1. Scott Chandler
    2. Scott
      Chandler
      TE
    3. REC YDS32
    4. REC TD0

    Chandler had two receptions for 47 yards a week ago, and is not an advisable starter in fantasy leagues.

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

    Carpenter drilled a 51-yard field goal last week, his only attempt of the game. He's 12-for-13 on the season.

    1. Buffalo Bills
    2. PTS ALLOWED26
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    I'd say this is a bad matchup for the Bills, but they aren't even a matchup play to begin with.

Miami Dolphins

    1. Ryan Tannehill
    2. Ryan
      Tannehill
      QB
    3. PASS YDS311
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Buffalo allows 24.5 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, making Tannehill a potentially sneaky play this week.

    1. Lamar Miller
    2. Lamar
      Miller
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS72
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS26
    6. REC TD0

    Miller was a total dud in his last game, and the Bills have been surprisingly tough against the run this season. It could be a tough day for him, but I'm predicting he saves it with a TD.

    1. Mike Wallace
    2. Mike
      Wallace
      WR
    3. REC YDS101
    4. REC TD1

    Buffalo has been terrible against the pass last year, and I think that will set up Wallace for one of his best games of the season.

    1. Brian Hartline
    2. Brian
      Hartline
      WR
    3. REC YDS82
    4. REC TD0

    Hartline seems the more consistent option in Miami, though Mike Wallace is doublessly more explosive. Both should do well this week.

    1. Brandon Gibson
    2. Brandon
      Gibson
      WR
    3. REC YDS48
    4. REC TD0

    Gibson is running third in the receiving corps and cannot be counted on as a starter unless one of the two guys in front of him gets hurt.

    1. Charles Clay
    2. Charles
      Clay
      TE
    3. REC YDS44
    4. REC TD0

    Clay is a fringe starter at the tight end position because he has become such an integral part of the Miami offense.

    1. Caleb Sturgis
    2. Caleb
      Sturgis
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG4

    Sturgis is 10-for-11 on field goals this year, including three from 50-plus. He should be started every week from here on out.

    1. Miami Dolphins
    2. PTS ALLOWED6
    3. SACKS5
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    I love this matchup for Miami coming off a bye. If they're available in your league, get them now.
