Week 8: at Buffalo Bills

All RB vs BUF

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The last time the Patriots faced Buffalo, rookie Jacoby Brissett was under center. This time, they'll face a Tom Brady-led offense, so looking back to Week Four won't tell us much about this matchup. Brady changes the likely defensive scheme radically. The Patriots watched LeGarrette Blount tote the rock effectively vs. Pittsburgh (24/127/2 rushing with one target for 1/7/0 receiving) while James White handled five targets for 2/32/1 receiving out of the backfield. Brady actually ran five times for 13 yards during the contest, bringing the Patriots up to 29/140/2 rushing on the day. Blount (13/50/1 rushing with two targets for 2/20/0 receiving) and White (7/19/0 rushing with nine targets for 8/47/2) also both scored in the game against Cincinnati two weeks ago. This rushing attack is going strong as of Week Eight. The Bills' rush defense averages 125.0 yards allowed per game (27th in the NFL) with eight rushing scores handed over to date. Miami just crushed this unit for 41/256/2 rushing last weekend, after the Bills gave up 28/133/0 to San Francisco two weeks ago. From Week Five to Week Seven of regular season (the last three weeks), Buffalo averages 21 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (11th-most in the NFL). This looks like a good matchup for New England, albeit between divisional rivals.
