WRs Sammy Watkins, Marquise Goodwin practice in full
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Bills wideouts Sammy Watkins and Marquise Goodwin were both full participants in Wednesday practice despite nagging injuries.

Watkins, who snagged second NFL touchdown pass last Sunday, is still dealing with a rib injury. Goodwin (concussion) has no receptions this season after totaling 17 a year ago.

Lions represent tough test for Sammy Watkins
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Lions have been able to clamp down on opposing passing games so far, which does not bode well for Bills receiver Sammy Watkins' chances of thriving with new quarterback Kyle Orton in Week 5.

The Lions have allowed just two wide receivers to rack up double-digit Fantasy points through four games, and have held big names like Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Victor Cruz and Kelvin Benjamin to five points or fewer in their matchups. In fact, Eric Decker is the only No. 1 receiver to find the end zone against the Lions, who have done a good job locking them up otherwise.

We are hoping the switch from EJ Manuel to Orton at quarterback opens up the Bills passing game, but we might not see the results of that right away. Watkins' upside got higher with this move, but Week 5 represents a tough enough matchup that he should be considered a risky starting option in most Fantasy formats.

Time share, touch matchup, makes Bills' backs tough to rely on
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Through four games, both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson rank in the top-22 among running backs in Fantasy scoring, as the Bills' timeshare has worked out nicely for both players. However, they might not find much success in Week 5, with the tough Lions defense on the way.

The Lions have done a solid job against opposing running backs, limiting them to just 3.4 yards per carry. They rank 10th in Fantasy points allowed, at 14.0 per game, which won't leave much for Spiller and Jackson to share. No running back tandem has seen both players reach double figures against the Lions either, though the Jets came close, thanks to Chris Johnson's late touchdown run in Week 4.

The Lions have been one of the best teams against the run over the last few years, so we shouldn't be surprised that they have maintained that through the quarter mark of the season. With so few teams on bye, you should have better options, so steer clear of this backfield tandem for Week 5.
