Poyer posted career highs across the board in 2017, his first season in Buffalo, with 95 tackles, two sacks, 13 passes defensed, five interceptions and a fumble recovery. Now that's some serious production the Bills (and IDP owners) received after signing Poyer as a free agent following three seasons from Cleveland. His numbers put him second among all safeties in IDP production, and with Poyer locked into a starting spot with the same defense and same coaching staff next season, he'll be a high pick when defensive players start getting selected.
Poyer had six tackles (two solo) and an interception return for a touchdown in Sunday's 37-16 loss to New England. Poyer made a diving play on a Tom Brady ball deep in Patriots territory and then got up untouched and took it to the house for his first score of the season. He'll remain a top safety in IDP formats Week 17 against Miami.
Poyer recorded six tackles (four solo), two pass defensed and one interception in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. Poyer tied a season-high with 75 defensive snaps Sunday and recorded his first interception since Week 5. He now has 87 tackles (61 solo) through 13 games this season, which is easily a career-high. He'll look to add to his season-total Sunday against the Patriots.
Poyer logged 11 tackles (eight solo) and two passes defended in Sunday's 54-24 loss to the Chargers. It was the second time this season Poyer has tallied 11 tackles, while the eight solo stops is a season high. He was one of two Bills players to play in every defensive snap. The 26-year-old figures to remain heavily involved on defense as the season progresses.
Poyer had 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's matchup with the Saints. This is Poyer's second double-digit performance of the season, but he doesn't have any other games with more than seven tackles. The fifth-year safety has already posted a career-high 50 tackles this season, which averages out to just over six tackles per game.
