Bills overwhelm rookie QB in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

 The Bills defense bounced back nicely from a blowout loss last week, in a 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

The Bills DST overwhelmed the Vikings' offensive line for five sacks, and they also took advantage of Teddy Bridgewater's youthful struggles. Bridgewater was picked off twice in the game, and the Vikings racked up just 15 points on 276 yards of total offense in the Bills' win.

The Bills DST unit finished Sunday's game with 15 Fantasy points, their fifth double-digit effort in seven contests. They head into solid matchup next with the Jets in Week 8.

Bills RB Fred Jackson to miss at least two weeks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills running back Fred Jackson will miss at least two weeks due to a groin injury, CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports. He is expected to be out up to four weeks in a worse-case scenario, NFL.com reports.

Jackson underwent an MRI Sunday, the results of which are expected to be announced Monday. With C.J. Spiller expected to miss the remainder of the season, the Buffalo rushing attack looks to be extremely thin for the immediate future. The Bills are off in Week 9, so it's possible Jackson misses just one game with the injury if he hits the low side of his timetable.

Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown names to watch for Bills
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Bills could be without their top two running backs after Week 7, which could thrust Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown into larger roles moving forward.  

With C.J. Spiller's season likely done and Fred Jackson dealing with a groin injury, Dixon carried the ball 13 times for 51 yards, while adding 15 yards on three receptions. He should see a bigger role than he has so far this season, but it might be Brown who has more value for Fantasy owners, since Dixon has never carried the ball more than 14 times in his five NFL seasons.

The Bills acquired Brown this offseason but have yet to use him. However, he has more potential than Dixon and figures to be a bigger part of the team's future anyways. Brown had thrived in limited opportunities in the past, rushing for 387 yards and four touchdowns on 71 carries over the course of four games late in his rookie season with the Eagles.

Whether Jackson will be sidelined moving forward remains to be seen, but Brown looks like the back to target on waivers this week. He should finally see the field and has enough upside to make him worth a flier.

QB change starting to benefit Sammy Watkins
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins failed to make much of an impact in Kyle Orton's first two games, but the pair showed a great rapport in Week 7 against the Vikings.

Watkins torched the Vikings for the best performance yet, as he set career-highs across the board. He was targeted by Orton 14 times in the passing game and hauled in nine of those passes for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns. And he did that against a Vikings defense that had allowed the 13th fewest Fantasy points to opposing receivers this season and was coming off a game in which the Lions had just 64 yards from their receivers.

Consistency will always remain an issue with Watkins, just like with any rookie wide receiver. However, he now has 85-plus yards in two of three games with Kyle Orton under center, and is clearly a more dangerous weapon now. Even with the natural ups-and-downs, Watkins should be a solid starting option this season.

Bills DE Jerry Hughes continues sack parade in Week 7
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes notched five tackles and 1.5 sacks in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Hughes split a sack early in the third quarter Sunday, but his solo sack proved critical, as it turned a first-and-goal in the fourth quarter into second-and-14, a play which also resulted in a sack. Hughes is up to 5.5 sacks on the season, with all but one coming in his last three games. He'll square off with the Jets in Week 8.
