Buffalo Bills opponent fantasy football preview Authentic Kyle Williams Jersey , week 4: Geronimo! The Buffalo Bills play the Green Bay Packers this weekend, and for the second consecutive game, the Bills will be big underdogs on the road. The Packers have plenty of offensive firepower, and there are some favorable match-ups for them on offense.The Bills have settled down defensively since being outscored 75-3 through the first six quarters of the season. However, one trend that has emerged so far is that whichever wide receiver isn’t covered by Tre’Davious White will have a big day against Buffalo. For fantasy football purposes, this is the kind of information that is good to know when approaching waiver pickups, but also when making start or sit decisions. For this week, there are a few Packers who match up well against the Bills.WR Geronimo AllisonI fully expect Tre’Davious White to stick with Davante Adams, and since the Packers like to move Randall Cobb all over the field, I imagine he’ll be working out of the slot often—leaving rookie Taron Johnson to stick with him. That leaves Allison, a 6’3” wideout from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, to work against Phillip Gaines or Ryan Lewis. While Lewis was good last week, Minnesota Vikings wideout Adam Thielen managed 14 receptions for 105 yards in the Bills’ 27-6 victory. While some of Thielen’s success was based on game flow and a soft defense in the fourth quarter , it was clear that quarterback Kirk Cousins was avoiding Stefon Diggs, who was covered by Tre’Davious White. Aaron Rodgers is a better quarterback than Cousins, but he will probably look to Allison more often than Adams this week thanks to the match-up.QB Aaron RodgersSpeaking of Rodgers, if he’s on your roster, you’re starting him this week. Unless you selected Patrick Mahomes II late to be Rodgers’ backup, you probably don’t have another quarterback who’s better than the future Hall of Famer. Rodgers has struggled in his career against Buffalo, completing 36-of-71 passes (50.7%, his lowest number against any team) for 440 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. As strong as Buffalo has been against the run this year, I’d imagine that the Packers will decide to go to a quick passing game that helps Rodgers avoid the pass rush and keeps the offense on time. This should give him plenty of chances to rack up yardage on the afternoon.TE Jimmy GrahamEven though rookie middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds has been improving rapidly, and despite Edmunds being a fantastic athlete, Graham is still one of the best tight ends in the league. The veteran is approaching 900 catches on his career , sitting at 879 coming in to the game, and his experience could pay off against the raw Edmunds. This match-up will be a big one to watch, but it’s one I imagine the Packers look at and feel confident in exploiting. If Graham is available—or if he’s on your roster already—he should be in your starting lineup this week.Buffalo Bills vs. Tennessee Titans: Game balls The Buffalo Bills pulled a rabbit out of their collective hats yesterday, coming from behind with less than five minutes to go in the fourth quarter to beat the Tennessee Titans, 13-12. While the Bills led for most of the game, it appeared that they had blown it in the fourth quarter. Then, the team engineered a ten-play drive that brought them into field goal range, and the special teams unit did the rest.There were numerous players deserving of recognition yesterday, but we narrowed it down to three for our game balls. K Stephen HauschkaThe man of the hour received a game ball from head coach Sean McDermott, but we felt like our virtual game ball would be just as valuable to him. Buffalo’s kicker was 2-for-2 on the day, and he probably would have made it 3-for-3 had punter Corey Bojorquez not botched a truly bizarre field goal attempt in the second quarter. Hauschka made a 40-yard field goal in the third quarter to put the Bills up 10-6, then made a 46-yard boot as time expired to give the Bills a 13-12 win. He also hit an extra point in the first quarter to cap off Josh Allen’s 14-yard touchdown rush.CB Taron JohnsonBuffalo’s rookie slot corner certainly looks like a great find in this year’s NFL Draft. The fourth-round choice out of Weber State logged his first career interception, jumping a slant route to secure a Marcus Mariota pass in the second quarter. Johnson also added four tackles Youth LeSean McCoy Jersey , and he continues to look stout in run support even though he is of smaller stature. He left the game briefly with another injury to his right shoulder, and appears as though he’s battling through a more serious injury. Johnson is a gritty player who continues to mature each week.DT Jordan PhillipsHonorable mention here goes to linebacker Matt Milano, who was absolutely everywhere on the field yesterday, notching ten combined tackles. I want to recognize the new guy, though, by giving Phillips the nod here. The waiver-wire claim from earlier in the week is a former second-round draft choice of the Miami Dolphins, and he came in to his new digs on Sunday looking motivated and disruptive. From my perch in section 107, Phillips not only appeared to be in on multiple plays, but he also seemed to log a high number of snaps for someone merely considered a depth piece upon his acquisition. He did a great job firing up the crowd, as well, bringing some energy and some swagger to a defense that held Tennessee to 221 total yards and 15 first downs. Phillips also managed three tackles on the afternoon, which is as many as fellow DT Star Lotululei has made on the season.
