FBG says: Bad matchup. The Dolphins continue to put forth arguably the NFL's most anemic passing game. On the season, they're producing just 4.8 adjusted yards per attempt (31st) and 215 per game (31st). For the moment, Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain under center, though it's hard to follow the logic. Josh Rosen hasn't been anyone's idea of a quality prospect, but playing the -year-old Fitzpatrick serves no real function in the lineup. He has posted a pair of 280+ yard starts, including one in this very matchup back in Week 7. But that's his absolute ceiling, especially with top receiver Preston Williams on injured reserve. DeVante Parker could take on a volume boost - he drew 10 targets last Sunday - but will find himself in TreDavious White's coverage for much of Week 11. Behind him, Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns divvy up a small pie as peripheral options in a low-impact attack. Second-year tight end Mike Gesicki has the opportunity, but continues to lose ground the more he's worked in. Last week, he turned 6 targets into just 28 yards and fumbled away a catch. His 95-yard eruption in Week 9 makes for an even 20% of his career yardage.
The Bills pass defense remains among the league's most dominant, giving up just 205 yards a game and 7 touchdowns. It has to be noted that, along the way, they've faced a wildly ineffective batch of opposing quarterbacks. But they did answer the bell nicely in strong performances against Tom Brady (18 of 39 for 150 yards, with an interception) and Carson Wentz (17 of 24 for 172 and a touchdown). Overall, as fantasy matchups go, it's fair to view this unit as a borderline-shutdown one. Cornerback Tre'Davious White has built on a fantastic rookie 2018 and stands as one of this year's three or four best cover men. White doesn't always shadow top receivers, but he's been the primary force in limiting wideouts Alshon Jeffery (64 yards), Odell Beckham (57), and Terry McLaurin (39) recently. Behind him, Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer make up an elite safety duo. They're willing in downfield coverage, and both have flashed playmaking ability on the ball. Ryan Fitzpatrick has looked marginally passable as the Dolphins' starter, but he's simply not in good Week 11 position against this group.
