AFC East Player Analysis
Mike Rumsey, FantasySharks.com, Senior Staff Writer

Buffalo Bills (vs Houston Texans)

QB Kyle Orton: ( 3 yds pass )

QB E.J. Manuel: Manuel has a good match up at Houston this week. He gets bonus points for rushing yards and could be used as bye week fill in if you have no other options. ( 185 yds pass with 1 TD and 1 Int; 13 yds rush )

RB C.J. Spiller: Spiller found no rushing room against San Diego last week and was outperformed by Jackson in both rushing and receiving yards. ( 62 yds rush; 2 catches for 21 yds )

RB Fred Jackson: Jackson is coming off his best performance of the season. He is the better play out the Bill's back field as he is more involved in the passing game and the Bills trust him with the football. ( 59 yds rush; 4 catches for 32 yds )

RB Anthony Dixon: As the 4th running back on the depth chart Dixon hardly ever sees the field. ( 16 yds rush; 1 catch for 2 yds )

RB Bryce Brown: Brown is buried on Buffalo's running back depth chart. ( 7 yds rush; 1 catch for 3 yds )

WR Sammy Watkins: Watkins has a good match up at Houston this week. Coming off his breakout game in week 2 he had only 2 catches on 8 targets from Manuel last week. ( 1 yd rush; 5 catches for 65 yds )

WR Robert Woods: There are better wide receiver option for week as 4 Woods has been limited by ankle injury and Manuel's erratic play. ( 1 yd rush; 3 catches for 39 yds )

WR Mike Williams: Williams is behind Woods and Watkins on the Buffalo's wide receiver depth chart. With limited looks from Manuel he currently has no fantasy value. ( 2 catches for 17 yds )

WR Marquise Goodwin: Goodwin has yet to record a catch so far this season. With so many other passing options available to Manuel Goodwin should be avoided.

WR Chris Hogan: ( 1 catch for 5 yds )

TE Scott Chandler: Upgrade Chandler slightly this week if Woods is limited again or does not practice. ( 4 catches for 50 yds )

TE Chris Gragg: ( 1 catch for 8 yds )

TE Lee Smith: Smith spends most of his time blocking and he should not be rostered in any fantasy football scoring format. ( 1 catch for 3 yds )

PK Dan Carpenter: Carpenter connected on his single field goal and extra point attempt last week. ( 2 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def Buffalo Bills: Buffalo didn't do much last week registering only 1 sack against the Chargers. They look to rebound at Houston this week. ( 2 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble )



Miami Dolphins (vs Oakland Raiders)

QB Ryan Tannehill: Tannehill has a brutal match up against the Raiders this week. Looks like he is on track to start after early reports were that Miami could be making a change at quarterback this week. ( 259 yds pass with 1 TD and 1 Int; 12 yds rush )

QB Matt Moore: ( 9 yds pass )

RB Lamar Miller: Keep Miller in your lineup with Moreno out of action for the next few weeks as he will be Miami's featured running back. ( 71 yds rush; 3 catches for 18 yds )

RB Damien Williams: Williams had 1 touch last week and Thomas had a few carries in limited relief of Miller last week. ( 4 yds rush; 1 catch for 1 yd )

RB Orleans Darkwa: ( 1 catch for 2 yds )

WR Mike Wallace: Wallace continues to be heavily targeted by Tannehill and is currently the best fantasy wide receiver play in the Dolphin's passing game. ( 1 yd rush; 5 catches for 57 yds )

WR Brian Hartline: Hartline found the end zone last week but also injured his elbow. With Tannehill locked onto Wallace, Hartline is not a great play for week 4. ( 5 catches for 55 yds )

WR Jarvis Landry: ( 3 catches for 29 yds )

WR Brandon Gibson: Gibson sees limited work in Miami's passing game and should not be started in any fantasy scoring format. ( 2 catches for 18 yds )

WR Rishard Matthews: Matthews is buried on Miami's wide receiver depth chart and currently has no fantasy value. ( 2 catches for 18 yds )

TE Charles Clay: Clay is still not hurting from a knee injury. He has a limited role in the offense and is not a recommended play against Oakland this week. ( 4 catches for 42 yds )

TE Dion Sims: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

TE Gator Hoskins: ( 1 catch for 2 yds )

PK Caleb Sturgis: Sturgis missed a field goal attempt last week. Even with Miami's current offensive woes he still receives scoring opportunities. ( 2 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def Miami Dolphins: Good match up against Carr this week, but we would like them more this week if this were a home game. ( 3 sacks, 1 Fumble )



New England Patriots (vs Kansas City Chiefs)

QB Tom Brady: Brady continues to struggle hitting open receivers. Until the offensive line issues are corrected, his production will continue to suffer. ( 255 yds pass with 1 TD and 1 Int; 1 yd rush )

QB Jimmy Garoppolo: ( 1 yd pass )

RB Shane Vereen: Vereen didn't find much rushing against the Raiders last week. If you have another RB option for week 4 use them, as he wasn't a factor in the passing game and that brings down his totals. ( 20 yds rush; 3 catches for 24 yds )

RB Stevan Ridley: Ridley saw plenty of carries last week but only amassed 54 rushing yards. He has limited value with his current time share with Vereen. ( 60 yds rush and 1 TD; 1 catch for 5 yds )

RB Brandon Bolden: Barring an injury Bolden continues to have no fantasy value. ( 19 yds rush; 1 catch for 11 yds )

RB James White: White has been inactive and is currently behind Bolden on the running back depth chart. ( 2 yds rush; 1 catch for 3 yds )

WR Julian Edelman: Edelman continues to Brady's favorite target but Gronkowski continues to see the majority of the red zone looks. ( 4 yds rush; 9 catches for 94 yds )

WR Brandon LaFell: Until New England's passing game gets back in sync LaFell has minimal fantasy value. ( 5 catches for 53 yds )

WR Danny Amendola: Amendola continues to have a limited role in the offense. He has seen only 2 targets from Brady the past 2 games. ( 4 catches for 43 yds )

WR Kenbrell Thompkins: Thompson started over Dobson last week. Currently only Edelman and Gronkowski should be started out of New England's passing game. ( 3 catches for 30 yds )

WR Aaron Dobson: Dobson did not play again last week. He should be avoided for week 4 as he only has 1 reception so far this season. ( 2 catches for 26 yds )

TE Rob Gronkowski: Gronkowski's snap count continues to rise. Brady has been locking onto him and he did make an end zone appearance last week. ( 5 catches for 68 yds and 1 TD )

TE Michael Hoomanawanui: Hoomanawanui's role is primarily as blocking tight end and he has little involvement in the passing game. ( 2 catches for 17 yds )

TE Tim Wright: Wright is still working on building his rapport with Brady. ( 3 catches for 28 yds )

PK Stephen Gostkowski: With New England's red zone issues Gostkowski continues to receive plenty of scoring opportunities. ( 3 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def New England Patriots: After last weeks 1 interception and no sack performance they look to rebound at Kansas City on Monday night. ( 2 sacks, 2 INTs, 1 Fumble )



New York Jets (vs Detroit Lions)

QB Geno Smith: Smith is expected to start this week. Not the best of match up against the Lions at home this week. He has thrown more picks than touchdowns this season. ( 173 yds pass with 1 TD and 1 Int; 25 yds rush )

QB Michael Vick: ( 14 yds pass; 3 yds rush )

RB Chris Ivory: He was more involved in the passing game than Johnson. Temper your expectations this week as Detroit is one of the better defensive teams against the run. ( 65 yds rush; 1 catch for 11 yds )

RB Chris Johnson: Detroit is great against the run and Johnson is losing carries to Ivory. Use another running back option for week 4. ( 46 yds rush; 2 catches for 15 yds )

RB Bilal Powell: Powell is in the mix at running back, but he doesn't not see enough action behind Johnson and Ivory. ( 23 yds rush; 2 catches for 15 yds )

WR Eric Decker: Decker is still suffering from a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the second half of last weeks game. His status for week 4 is unknown, check his injury status later in the week. ( 4 catches for 54 yds )

WR Jeremy Kerley: Kerley has a tougher task this week against Detroit. If Decker is limited again this week Kerley will continue to see plenty of attention. ( 2 yds rush; 5 catches for 48 yds )

WR David Nelson: With 3 catches and 2 fumbles last week Nelson should not be rostered in any fantasy football scoring format. ( 1 yd rush; 2 catches for 24 yds )

WR Greg Salas: Salas limited value wilt continue to drop once Decker recovers from his current hamstring injury. ( 1 catch for 17 yds )

TE Jeff Cumberland: Cumberland continues to have a limited role in the Jet's passing game. There are better tight ends available for week 4. ( 3 catches for 35 yds )

TE Jace Amaro: Amaro picked up some of the slack when Decker left last week's game due to his hamstring injury. Until he starts to see more of Smith's attention use another tight end option for week 4. ( 2 catches for 15 yds )

TE Zach Sudfeld: With his limited role in the offense Sudfeld continues to be off the fantasy radar. ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

PK Nick Folk: There are is no reason to sit Folk as he continues to be one of the top fanatsy place kickers. ( 2 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def New York Jets: They will slow down Detroit's rushing attack but could be in for long afternoon against Stafford. ( 3 sacks, 1 Fumble )
