, but the Bills got more than anyone predicted from Matt Barkley on Sunday.Barkley’s last start came in 2016, but he opened the game with a long completion to Robert Foster and went on to play well throughout Buffalo’s 41-10 rout of the Jets. The 41 points were a high for the season and only three points less than the Bills managed over their last five games.Barkley, who came into the game with 18 interceptions on 266 career passes, completed 15-of-25 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns while avoiding turnovers. That led to praise from head coach Sean McDermott after the game.“I had seen him practice well,” McDermott said. “The biggest thing I really appreciated about Matt is that he led the football team. He had good energy during the week. The look in his eye today was a good one. He brought good energy to our offense. He gave the receivers a chance to make plays on the ball and at the end of the day he took care of the football, which we haven’t done to this point of late. When you take care of the football, you give yourself a chance to win.”McDermott was asked about his quarterback plans for the future http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/cody-ford-jersey
, but there’s time for the Bills to make that call as they have a bye in Week 11. Josh Allen could be healthy enough to play by that point and Barkley made a compelling case for another start if he’s not. Some trends have begun to emerge in fantasy football regarding the Buffalo Bills and their opponents. For example, coming into Sunday’s match-up with the Tennessee Titans, “second” receivers—or those not covered by Tre’Davious White—had scored well against the Bills’ defense. As a result, we projected Taywan Taylor to have a big day against the Bills this week.However, Tennessee’s passing game was largely impotent, thanks in part to a fantastic effort from “secondary” corners Phillip Gaines and Taron Johnson. After starter Ryan Lewis struggled a bit in the early going, he was replaced in the lineup by Gaines Devin Singletary Jersey
, who was a big part of why Taylor had a quiet afternoon (3 catches, 30 yards, 1 lost fumble). With Buffalo eking out a 13-12 victory, high-scoring fantasy players from this game weren’t exactly in great supply. However, one of the highest scorers at his position did manage to come from a match-up that was largely a fantasy football wasteland.WR Corey DavisThe Titans scored so little in overall fantasy points that their third-highest scorer was Davis, whose pedestrian line (4 catches, 49 yards) was only worth a total of 6.9 points on the afternoon. Each time Davis was covered by someone other than White http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/dawson-knox-jersey
, it seemed that Mariota was able to find him, and the big wideout delivered some solid grabs on the afternoon. However, in a game where the stat line was reminiscent of a game from the 1950s, Davis was little help to most fantasy teams.Titans D/STWhile Tennessee didn’t create as many turnovers as the Bills, nor did they have as many sacks, they still turned in a solid day overall. Finishing with 7 fantasy points on the day thanks to a sack and an interception, their performance was good for a middle-of-the-pack showing in overall team defense. On most days Youth John Brown Jerseys
, that’s all you can ask for out of a team defense.K Ryan SuccopThe high scorer in this match-up was Tennessee’s kicker, who was 4-for-4 on field goal attempts on the afternoon. Succop hit from 25, 54, 39, and 50 yards on the day, so if your league awards kickers 5 points for 50-yard kicks, you reaped the rewards of Succop’s strong leg. His afternoon was good for 16 fantasy points John Brown Jerseys Stitched
