Week 3: at Buffalo Bills

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Philip Rivers is off to a great start this season, ranking eighth in the NFL among fantasy quarterbacks with 49/73 for 522 yards passing, four TDs and one interception thrown. He's relied on his running backs for 12/90/0 receiving to date, and hooked up with Antonio Gates the most (13/177/3 receiving out of 17 targets). Keenan Allen (15 targets for 10/92/0 receiving) and Eddie Royal (16 for 8/89/0) have seen the most targets among the wide receivers, while Malcom Floyd (seven for 4/50/1) has claimed the lone TD thrown to a wide receiver so far - Floyd put up a goose-egg against Seattle, though, with zero targets during the game. Last season the Bills were fourth in the NFL averaging 204 net passing yards allowed per game, BUT they gave up 28 passing scores over 16 games. Part of the reason for the low average passing yards allowed was that their rush defense was porous last year so teams elected to run the ball against Buffalo quite a lot. So far this year, Jay Cutler lit up the Bills in Week 1 for 34/49 yielding 341 net yards passing and two TDs but also two interceptions thrown while being sacked twice for -8 yards. The Dolphins managed 31/49 for 210 net yards in Week 2, with one TD and one interception thrown, while taking four sacks for -31 yards. The Bills are currently 27th in the NFL averaging 275.5 net passing yards allowed per game, but they are tied for fourth in the NFL with three interceptions so far and tied for sixth with six sacks so far. This pass D gambles trying to create big turnovers or big losses on sacks. The Chargers' passing attack handled the feared Seahawks with aplomb last week - they have an attractive matchup against the free-wheeling and generous Buffalo pass D this week as well.
