Week 12: at Buffalo Bills
FBG says: Tough matchup. The Broncos passing offense looked pretty good for a while last week as Brandon Allen was unapologetically airing the ball out downfield. While he did connect on a few deep balls, he missed more often than not while struggling to sustain drives, particularly in the second half. Through two starts, however, Allen has proven to be an upgrade over what Joe Flacco brought to the table for this passing offense. While not putting up flashy numbers himself, he has supported a couple of decent fantasy showings from Courtland Sutton, who scored a touchdown in Week 9 and amassed 113 receiving yards last week. Sutton is the undisputed top receiver in this offense and has seen a consistent level of volume all season both before and after the departure of Emmanuel Sanders, averaging about eight targets and 80 yards per game. It was actually tight end Noah Fant who led the team in targets last week though--marking the second time in the past three games he has been the top option. Wide receiver Tim Patrick returned from injury in his first game since Week 2 last week, and he was immediately involved with eight targets, hauling in four of those for 77 yards. While Patrick's ceiling remains low, he should provide a viable option opposite Sanders for this passing offense moving forward. The Bills defense has been particularly good against the pass this season, giving up just 217 passing yards and 15 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks--both ranking third-fewest in the league. Every pass-catching position is averaging a below-average fantasy output against this defense as the Bills sport a strong combination of pass-rushing talent up front and a well-rounded secondary. Their rotation of pass-rushers can be quite tiresome for an offensive line, with four very strong edge defenders all seeing consistent playing time to keep a fresh body on the field at all times. Safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer have both done an excellent job over the top, as this Bills defense has tied for allowing the third-fewest pass plays of 40 or more yards (3) and the second-fewest pass plays of 20 or more yards (21). Cornerback Tre'Davious White has also played a big part in their success, as he is routinely shutting down opponents and will be a difficult matchup for Courtland Sutton this week.
