The Buffalo Bills will not be defined as the “Dream Team” by Vince Young. He has learned his lesson to be quiet from last year. The Bills showed some promise last year starting off strong winning 5 of their first 7 games. Then it appears the bottom fell out and the team lost the next 8 of 9 games…ouch! Great moves this off season include the signing of RB Fred Jackson and WR Stevie Johnson to contract extention. The biggest move of the off season for the Bills has been the signing of DE Mario Williams! Williams will surely make Tom Brady and Mark Sanchez a little more uncomfortable on the field this season. Here are a few more things about the 2012 Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Football Studs: Fred Jackson became a bonifide fantasy football stud last season. He had his first 1000 yard season last year, but he is also coming off an injury. Still, look for Jackson to get his cuts again this year. This is the year that CJ Spiller moves into to fantasy stardom as well, especially with the Bills lining him up at receiver. Speaking of receiver, Stevie Johnson will supply you with some decent weeks. To me, Johnson is one of thr best WRs to exploit a favorable match-up.
Area of Strength: The Bills are lookng strong with the run! The contract extention of Fred Jackson was a good move. Don’t forget CJ Spiller. Combined this fellas averaged over 5 yards a carry with over 1500 yards.
Area of Weakness: QB Ryan Fitzpatrick started out last season on a red hot streak, stringing a few back to back stud performances during the first half of the season, even getting a new contract out of the deal. But the ink wasn’t even dry on that contract before Fitz slipped back to being a liability for the Bills. He is a definite weakness for Buffalo. He also has newly acquired Vince Young to worry about, who is dead set on taking the starting spot. Also, the Bills spent some money this off season by signing former #1 pick, Mario Williams. But Williams is coming off a season ending injury. As of now he and that defense is a weakness.
2012 Marquee Matchups: Weeks 4 and 5 will prove to be tough as they have to face the Patriots followed by the 49ers. Then coming off a bye week, Weeks 9 and 10 the Bills will face Mario’s old team the Texans, and then the Patriots again. Their schedule is not too tough and with the right play, they could make a little noise this year…
