AFC East Player Analysis
Mike Rumsey,, Senior Staff Writer

Buffalo Bills (vs Tennessee Titans)

QB Tyrod Taylor: Taylor and the offense stalled last week. He will be a slight upgrade for week 5 if Watkins returns. Due to the injuries to McCoy and Williams the Bills may be forced to go to the air against Tennessee this week. ( 197 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 19 yds rush )

QB Matt Cassel: ( 109 yds pass with 1 TD; 1 yd rush )

QB E.J. Manuel: ( 7 yds pass; 1 yd rush )

RB LeSean McCoy: If he is active you start him for week 5, but current reports have him missing a few more weeks with a hamstring injury.

RB Karlos Williams: It's a great match up for week 5 but Williams left last week's game with a concussion and his playing status for week 5 is still up in the air. We will know more later in the week. ( 35 yds rush; 2 catches for 16 yds )

RB Anthony Dixon: Dixon will be the next man up if McCoy and Williams can't go for week 5. He has a very favorable match up at home for week 5 and will be a high risk/reward play. ( 23 yds rush; 1 catch for 10 yds )

WR Sammy Watkins: Watkins status for week 5 won't be known until later in the week. ( 3 catches for 39 yds )

WR Robert Woods: Woods has only 1 game with over 60 yards receiving this season. Tennessee is one of the better teams against the pass and Woods wasn't much of factor with Watkins sidelined last week. ( 3 catches for 42 yds )

WR Percy Harvin: Harvin has a bad match up against the Titans at home this week. There are better wide receiver options for week 5 as Harvin hasn't found the end zone since week 1 and he has been nursing a hip injury the past few weeks. ( 5 yds rush; 3 catches for 31 yds )

WR Marquise Goodwin: ( 1 catch for 7 yds )

WR Chris Hogan: If Watkins is limited in practice this week this week then Hogan will have some limited upside although the main beneficiary of Watkins absence has been Clay. ( 1 catch for 14 yds )

TE Charles Clay: Clay has been on fire the past two weeks, but he could lose a few targets this week if Watkins returns back to the starting lineup. ( 4 catches for 46 yds )

TE Matthew Mulligan: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

TE Chris Gragg: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

PK Dan Carpenter: Carpenter's back to back weeks with a missed field goal attempts are starting to become a concern. ( 2 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def Buffalo Bills: Buffalo will look to limit the Titans running game which will make Mariota go to the air where they should be able to capitalize on a few interceptions. ( 2 sacks, 2 INTs, 1 Fumble )

New England Patriots (vs Dallas Cowboys)

QB Tom Brady: Dallas just gave up 359 passing yards and two touchdowns to New Orleans last week. Brady is rested up and coming off a bye week so there is no reason to not start him Week 5 at Dallas. ( 303 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 2 yds rush )

QB Jimmy Garoppolo: ( 13 yds pass; 1 yd rush )

RB LeGarrette Blount: A tough match up on the road at Dallas this week so temper your expectations. Dallas's defense has yet to allow 100 yards rushing to any opposing running back yet this season. ( 47 yds rush and 1 TD; 2 catches for 16 yds )

RB Dion Lewis: Lewis will lose some carries to Blount but he will continue to have some value as he is heavily involved in New England's passing game and the Patriots do love to throw the football. ( 35 yds rush; 3 catches for 32 yds )

RB Brandon Bolden: ( 9 yds rush; 1 catch for 3 yds )

RB James White: ( 4 yds rush; 1 catch for 6 yds )

WR Julian Edelman: Edelman has a tougher match up against the Cowboys this week. He is a PPR machine and should be in your lineup as he leads all New England receivers with 42 targets. ( 4 yds rush; 8 catches for 81 yds )

WR Danny Amendola: Amendola did score back in week 3 but he isn't much more than a bye week or injury fill in. Brady Looks Edelman's, Gronkowski's and Lewis's way much more often than Amendola. ( 1 yd rush; 4 catches for 37 yds )

WR Aaron Dobson: Dobson continues to see some limited action in New England's passing game with LaFell out of action the past few weeks. ( 2 catches for 22 yds )

TE Rob Gronkowski: Dallas is one of the better teams defending against opposing tight ends but defending against Gronkowski is a different deal, as opposing defenses have yet to even slow him down. ( 5 catches for 75 yds and 1 TD )

TE Scott Chandler: As Gronkowski's backup, Chandler isn't an integral part of New England's passing offense. With his highest weekly receiving yardage of 25 yards, Chandler should be avoided in all fantasy scoring formats. ( 2 catches for 16 yds )

TE Michael Williams: ( 1 catch for 2 yds )

PK Stephen Gostkowski: We believe you've heard of him? ( 4 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def New England Patriots: Should be an OK play at Dallas this week coming off their week 4 bye, but we would like them more if this were a home game instead of on the road at Dallas. ( 3 sacks, 1 INT )
