Bills vs. Chiefs: Fantasy Start/Sit


Here’s your fantasy help for the week… at least when it comes to the Bills and Chiefs when they meet at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.


Bills WR Sammy Watkins: No he has not been targeted too much in games, but when he has, the guy has produced. The last time that he yelled at his teammates for not targeting him enough, the second-year wide receiver out of Clemson went for over 160 yards and a touchdown in a win against the Miami Dolphins. Do I foresee the same production? No, but I could see upwards of 80-100 yards and a touchdown.

Either of the defenses: The Bills defense came alive Monday night in New England, generating numerous rushes and forcing a Brady interception. Now they’re going against a much worse quarterback in Alex Smith, who does not have nearly the offense that the Patriots have. I’d expect Buffalo to force a couple of turnovers. On the other end, Buffalo’s offense did not get anything going except for one touchdown drive against New England. That bodes well for the Chiefs’ always-good defense who are dominant at home and have possibly the greatest home-field advantage in the league (at least by noise they do).

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West: He has been a blessing in disguise for the Chiefs, replacing Jamaal Charles and helping this team win four in a row and get them right back in the playoff race. But Kansas City is going against a Buffalo defense that allows less than 100 yards per game on the ground. An inexperienced back against a great rush defense? Bad combination for fantasy owners.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor: Now, while Tyrod has proven that he loves the road (3-1 record with 5 TD/0 INT), I still think this is the toughest defense he’ll face all season. Unless they just throw eight in the box and dare this team to throw, which could be a possibility, I see this being a low-scoring game. What does that mean? Not a lot of production out of the Bills starting quarterback.

If you’re in need…

Bills RB Karlos Williams: If this is the type of game I’m predicting, that means that there will be a lot of goal-line situations with teams grinding out drives. Enter Karlos Williams, the perfect back to pick you up some points in these situations. Williams scored a touchdown in every game he has played in this season except for last week. I’d see them getting him involved a lot in the rushing attack, giving fantasy owners some cheap points that could decide a game.
