Predicted Score: Patriots 31, Bills 17
Buffalo: The NFL schedule makers didn't do the Bills any favors this season matching them up against three potential playoff teams right out of the gate. The Broncos (Wk1), Pittsburgh (Wk 2), and now New England in Week 3. Yikes…. no wonder the Bills are struggling. QB J.P Losman is pleading to the coaches to open up the offense a little more. And they'll need to if they have any shot of beating the Patriots this Sunday. The lone bright spot has been RB Marshawn Lynch who's modest 184 total yds and 1 TD after two games is giving fantasy owners a viable number two RB. Anybody seen Lee Evans? I didn't expect much Week 1 going against Champ Bailey Week 1, but another disappearing act this week will be cause for concern.
- Start: RB Marshawn Lynch, WR Lee Evans
- Consider: QB J.P. Losman
- Sit: WR Peerless Price, WR Josh Reed, TE Robert Royal
New England: The Pats played with a passion last week against San Diego in support of their head coach, laying waste to the Chargers 38-14. Coming off that emotional high, this could be a trap game for New England but Bill Belichick won't allow it and Tom Brady has this offense clicking (2nd in total yards behind the Denver Broncos). Do I need to remind you that the Patriots have won 12 out of the last 13 games against the Bills? OK, I will… the Patriots beaten the Bills 12 out of the last 13 games. We had a feeling Moss was sandbagging with his supposed hamstring injury during the preseason and low and behold, with another 100-yds receiving this week, Moss can become the first receiver in history to post three 100-yard games in his first three games with a new team. RB Sammy Morris is replacing Maroney every third series and is making the most out of his touches. Maroney is still a good play but needs to find the endzone to make fantasy owners happy.
- Start: QB Tom Brady, WR Randy Moss
- Consider: RB Laurence Maroney, RB Sammy Morris WR Wes Welker, TE Ben Watson, Patriots D/ST
- Sit: N/A
