Buffalo Bills  24, Cleveland Browns 14

Another week down, another very efficient outing for Ryan Fitzpatrick (218 total yards, 3 TDs) yet again.  Fitzpatrick is showing that as long as his team can stay balanced with the running attack and either play with a lead or close to it, he can put up fantasy worthy stats.  Brandon Weeden (237 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs) had a very uneven performance in contrast, definitely not the awesome showing he had in Week 2, nor the disaster he had in Week 1.  This type of performance is probably going to be more the norm than anything from the rookie signal caller.

Stevie Johnson (7-61, 1 TD) keeps showing that he’s not only the favorite pass target for Fitzpatrick, he’s really the only one that matters.  Donald Jones (5-42) had a decent game, but this seems to be about his ceiling.  And without a touchdown catch, Scott Chandler (2-22) becomes very mediocre for fantasy purposes.

Jordan Cameron (5-45) finally showed up in the box score after all that preseason promise.  Is this an anomaly, or the new norm?  Josh Gordon (3-40) also got some extended playing time and may replace Greg Little (2-17), who dropped two crucial passes in the game that could have helped keep drives alive.

So much for CJ Spiller’s (4 car., 16 yards; 2 rec., 42 yards, 1 TD) time in the limelight, as the NFL’s leading rusher through two weeks went down with a sprained shoulder early in the contest.  No word yet on how many games he’ll be out, but until Fred Jackson returns, Tashard Choice (20 car., 91 yards; 2 rec., 8 yards) becomes a viable waiver pick up.

Trent Richardson (12 car., 27 yards, 1 TD; 6 rec., 24 yards) came crashing back to earth in what will likely be the type of game that the rookie could see more often than not if Weeden continues to not make the opposition pay for stacking the line of scrimmage.  At least a close-in touchdown salvaged his fantasy day.
