Dion Lewis has been placed on the PUP list, and cannot return until Week 7 at the earliest. He is still dealing with complications from a 2015 ACL tear, though no details are available on his latest surgery.

Week 4: vs Buffalo Bills

All RB vs BUF

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. This is a classic AFC East rivalry game, and these contests are always hard-fought affairs. LeGarrette Blount ran for 15/92/1 in the second half against the Miami Dolphins in Week Two and posted 17/94/2 rushing in the second half against the Houston Texans last week - the Patriots are grinding down their opponents with Blount while waiting out Tom Brady's suspension. Blount has dominated carries for the Patriots so far, with 75/298/4 rushing vs. 8/35/0 rushing for James White (White has also seen 13 targets for 8/52/0 in the change-of-pace role). The Patriots' offense runs through Blounts' legs right now. The Bills' rush defense limited the Cardinals to less than 100 yards rushing last week, but coughed up 22/88/2 to David Johnson and company. To date, the Bills average 98 rushing yards given out per game (14th in the NFL), but they have given out the third-most rushing TDs over three games with five scores handed away. So far, they are ranked 10th-most generous in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing running backs, with an average of 21.5 allowed. This is a good matchup for the featured Blount.
