1. Rasul Douglas

According to PFF's WAR (Wins above replacement) scale, Bills newly-acquired cornerback Rasul Douglas is the most valuable cornerback in the NFL this season — and Bills general manager Brandon Beane traded pennies on the dollar to bring him over from the Green Bay Packers at the trade deadline in November.

Since joining the Bills, Douglas has been a well-oiled machine. In four starts, the 29-year-old veteran has recorded 2 interceptions, 5 passes defended, and 2 fumble recoveries, all while guarding the league's best offensive threats in Garrett Wilson, A.J. Brown, and Travis Kelce.

And now he faces another test against Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb.

While Douglas won't be on an island against Lamb, due to the Bills zone coverage defensive style, he will likely be the number one option to cover Lamb when the team decides it's time for man coverage. With Lamb entering week 15 ranked third in receptions and yards, Douglas and the Bills defensive backfield is going to have its hands full.

Against a Cowboys team that forces turnovers, its imperative that Buffalo's defense can create a few 'splash plays' of their own.

Look for Douglas to lead the way.
