Fantasy Preview: Buffalo vs. Cleveland

Posted: Updated:

It's a matchup that we have all been waiting for. Okay, not exactly, but the Browns and Bills will play an NFL game tonight.

Buckle up, okay, travel at your own risk.

The Bills:

EJ Manuel faces a Cleveland Browns defense that is third in the NFL against the pass. The Browns have averaged 212 yards and that number sounds about right for Manuel who will struggle to find the endzone and will come in around 220 yards.

CJ Spiller is a game time decision and this matchup is not good for the downtrodden runner and he isn't even ranked among Charch's top 25. If he does go, he won't touch the 77 yards of a week ago.

Fred Jackson continues to prove doubters wrong from a production stand point. This is a bad matchup though and 50-60 combo yards is about as good as it's going to get.

Stevie Johnson gave his owners one catch for negative yards last week and although the matchup isn't good, he'll see most of the looks in the Bills passing game. He should be on your bench this week along with Robert Woods and Scott Chandler.

Dan Carpenter should hit 3-4 field goals which makes him a plausible start.

If you have the Bills DST, try to grab another in your week-to-week approach.

The Browns:

It's all good for Brian Hoyer and the offense. Hoyer is a sneaky play against the Bills. He'll touch 300 yards and a pair of scores in another Browns win.

Willis McGahee should eclipse 100 combo yards, but won't find the endzone.

Josh Gordon is in for a monster game and will eclipse 100 yards and score. Davonne Bess will pick up around 50 yards, and tight end Jordan Cameron is a must play and will top 100 yards and score as well.

Kicker Billy Cundiff is listed as a sleeper in this week's rankings. Buffalo has allowed the third most field goals this season and multiple field goals in all four weeks.

The DST is ranked third this week and should get your team off to a great start on Thursday night.
