Week 4: vs Buffalo Bills

All WR vs BUF

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. This is a classic AFC East rivalry game, and these contests are always hard-fought affairs. New England Patriots QBs Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) have reportedly made enough progress in their recoveries from their respective injuries that the team is hopeful both will be available in Week Four against the Buffalo Bills as of Tuesday, September 27. If Garoppolo can go he'll get the final start before Tom Brady comes back to the forefront of the Patriots' offense. Garoppolo has been the superior passer (42/59 for 496 yards passing, four TDs and zero interceptions thrown over two games started). Rob Gronkowski (in for a cameo appearance against the Texans last week, with one target for zero receptions) should be available for this contest as well, so the Patriots' passing game should look up in Week Four. The Bills destroyed Carson Palmer last weekend, with five sacks for -27 yards and four interceptions of Palmer - vs. zero TDs allowed (26/50 for 260 net yards passing). Buffalo is tied for second in the NFL with 10 sacks through three games, and has averaged 285.0 net yards passing allowed per game (22nd in the NFL), but only two passing scores given out vs. four interceptions generated. Over the first three weeks of the season, Buffalo has averaged 17.3 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (ninth-least in the NFL); but 30.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (fifth-most in the NFL); with 2 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (tied for second-least). This looks like a better matchup for Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan/Danny Amendola than it is for the recovering-form Gronkowski. This is a neutral matchup between divisional rivals.
