The New England Patriots really struggled from a fantasy prospective in their 20-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
Quarterback Tom Brady ranked 19th on the day, behind waiver wire players like Brock Osweiler, Blaine Gabbert, T.J. Yates, and Mark Sanchez. The Bills did a great job of stifling the offense as head coach Rex Ryan always has one of these games up his sleeves over his two faceoffs. Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor was even worse, ranking 24th on the day.
Running back James White finished as the 8th best running back thanks to his two touchdowns on four touches. It's hard to project him having such great production moving forward unless he sees a positive spike in opportunities. LeGarrette Blount was the 35th ranked back with a hard fought 61 yards on 17 touches. He'll bounce back with better red zone opportunities. The Bills LeSean McCoy ranked 4th on the week with 123 yards and a touchdown on 26 touches.
Wide receiver Danny Amendola stepped in and produced the 7th best day for wide receivers on the back of a 9 receptions for 117 yards day. He didn't get into the end zone, but he's a starter if his knee injury isn't serious. Brandon LaFell ranked 36th on the week with 66 yards on four catches and he remains a strong flex play. Bills slot receiver Chris Hogan ranked 22nd on the day with 95 yards on 6 receptions as he squared off against Tavon Wilson and Patrick Chung.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski ranked 21st on the week with an extremely quiet 37 yards on two receptions. Bills leading receiver and tight end Charles Clay was even quieter with just 14 yards on one reception.
