Week 3: vs Arizona Cardinals
All WR vs ARI
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. During Week One, Sammy Watkins saw six targets for a so-so 4/43/0 receiving (and that was almost half of the 111 yards passing that Tyrod Taylor managed at Baltimore). Charles Clay was second on the team in receiving with three targets for 2/40/0, and fantasy owners invested in Buffalo's passing attack were not happy campers. Last week, though, Tyrod Taylor bounced back in a big way against the Jets' struggling secondary, with 18/30 for 297 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, and surprisingly, zero sacks taken. Watkins still disappointed, though, with five targets but just 2/20/0 receiving, while Marquise Goodwin (five targets for 2/112/1 receiving) and Greg Salas (five for 4/89/1) found a way to make things work at home in New Era Stadium. Backup running back Mike Gillislee (one for 1/18/1) was the other receiver that scored for the Bills. Though they still lost the game on Sunday, the Bills found their passing attack, which is a good thing.
The Cardinals knocked the wind out of the Buccaneers' sails in Week Two, intercepting Jameis Winston four times while allowing just one TD pass (27/52 for 221 net yards passing, with three sacks generated for -22 yards). The Cardinals' pass D ceded 24/33 for 257 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions with two sacks for -7 yards to Jimmy Garoppolo and company two games back - through two contests, the Cardinals are 15th in the NFL averaging 239.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with two passing scores handed out vs. four interceptions and five sacks generated to date. They are currently allowing the seventh-least fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks (15.9 per game on average); but have surrendered the 11th-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers (27.6 per game); while averaging 2.2 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing tight ends (tied for second-least in the NFL).
This is a tough matchup for the on-again/off-again Bills' attack.
