Bills' Mike Tolbert: Picks up McCoy's slack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolbert rushed for 41 yards on 11 carries in Sunday's 26-16 win over Denver.

With star back LeSean McCoy frustrated by Denver's swarming defense, Buffalo's coaching staff decided to go heavy and ram Tolbert up the gut. The strategy was especially effective late in the game as Buffalo sought to eat the clock. That sort of "finisher" role seems to be Tolbert's job in Buffalo. In two wins, Tolbert has tallied 24 touches and a score. In the team's lone loss, playing from behind, Tolbert barely got into the action. It might thus be wise to consider the opposing offense, as well as opposing defense, when considering what to do with Tolbert on a given week.

Bills' Jordan Matthews: Nabs key catch in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews snatched three of five targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 26-16 win over Denver.

Matthews' 28-yard catch early in the second quarter helped set up Buffalo's first touchdown of the contest. Acquired late in the offseason, it is clear that Matthews is still getting acclimated to Buffalo's attack as he is averaging less than four targets per game. What should be exciting to Bills' fans, however, is that the coaching staff has found a way to use Matthews' size and athleticism to make plays down field early on. Three of Matthews' eight catches this season have gone for at least 20 yards, a rate of 37.5 percent. nearly twice his career mark of 19.1 percent. It's a small sample size, but look for Matthews' production to climb upward in Buffalo as the season progresses.

Bills' Charles Clay: Scores key touchdown against Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clay nabbed all six of his targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-16 win over Denver.

Clay's six yard touchdown in the third quarter put Buffalo back on top in the game, a lead that they would not relinquish. Much has been made concerning Buffalo's lack of depth at receiver after losing Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins, but Clay has filled that void nicely, averaging six targets per game. He is on pace to post his best reception and target totals since his breakout season in Miami in 2013. Look for Buffalo to continue to feature Clay as new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison's west-coast scheme has long depended on the tight end even when greater depth at receiver has been present.

Bills' LeSean McCoy: Grounded in Week 3 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCoy was held to just 21 yards on 14 carries in Sunday's win over Denver, though he did have a decent outing in the passing game with seven catches for 48 yards.

True, it was the Denver defense, but McCoy had run up 12 straight home games with at least 90 yards from scrimmage. Couple this outing with the ugly 46 scrimmage yards McCoy put up last week, and owners are certainly starting to look for more from the top-five pick. He gets a tough match-up at Atlanta next week.

Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Efficient Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor completed 20 of 26 passes for 213 yards in Buffalo's win over the Broncos on Sunday. He threw two touchdown passes and no interceptions while rushing for 13 yards, and was sacked four times.

That's about as much as you can expect for a fantasy QB playing against the Denver defense, especially once you consider the Buffalo offense didn't score a touchdown last week in Carolina. The Bills don't have enough weapons in the passing game to make Taylor a weekly threat for huge production, but he also doesn't get enough credit for his accuracy and turnover-free ways, while his yardage on the ground sometimes make up for his low passing yardage totals.
