Week 16 is close, but there is NO Thursday Night Football Game this week! But just for fun – let’s break down the Dolphins and Bills game.
Lamar Miller- After somewhat of a disappointing season, the only reason Lamar Miller is considered a starter this late in the season is due to injuries around him. However, the inconsistent Miller has a favorable matchup against the Buffalo Bills 7th worst rush defense, a unit that allows an average of 127.3 yards per game. Fantasy owners should look to play Miller as a flex option in Week 16.
C.J. Spiller- While the Bills have the luxury of utilizing two strong running backs in C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, fantasy owners should not shy away from using the electrifying Spiller this week against the Dolphins. Miami has the league’s 11th worst rush defense, allowing an average of 117.2 yards per game to opposing teams. Fantasy owners should expect a strong performance from Spiller on Thursday Night Football.
Stevie Johnson- Johnson is not expected to play this week due to the death of his mother. Thanks to various injuries, the Buffalo Bills quarterback situation has been wishy-washy at best this season. This has also been bad news for Stevie Johnson’s fantasy value. In 12 games this season, he’s recorded 52 receptions for 597 yards and three touchdowns.
Scott Chandler- Buffalo Bills tight end Scott Chandler has been one of the few bright spots in the Bills pass attack this season. In 14 games this season Chandler has hauled in 48 receptions for 569 yards and 2 touchdowns. While the Miami Dolphins have the league’s 16th best pass defense, any Buffalo receiver or tight end is a high-risk play for fantasy owners this late into fantasy playoffs.
