Bills DST underwhelms with favorable matchup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) Having scored double-digit Fantasy points (according to standard CBSSports.com scoring) in seven of its previous eight games, the Bills DST seemed like a gimme Week 16 at Oakland, which had allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to DSTs this season. But for whatever reason, the defense didn't show up, allowing 26 points on 347 yards in a surprise loss for the Bills.

The points and yardage weren't even the biggest problem. The big plays that had carried the Bills DST in recent weeks, like the three touchdowns in its previous four games, were nowhere to be found. The Bills had just one sacks and zero takeaways.

The timing of this performance is all the incentive you need to sit the Bills DST for Week 17 at New England. With that matchup, it would have been a tough call otherwise.


Bills DST surprises against Packers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) Facing one of the league's most prolific offensive teams, one that hung 43 on the Falcons just last week, the Bills limited the Packers to 13 points on 333 yards in Week 15. They benefited from some big plays, of course, namely the two interceptions from quarterback Aaron Rodgers, both by defensive back Bacarri Rambo. Rodgers entered the game having thrown only three interceptions all season.

The Bills had just one sack, but it resulted in a safety with less than two minutes to go in the game. From a Fantasy perspective, their DST also benefited from a 75-yard punt return touchdown by Marcus Thigpen in the first quarter. It was the third touchdown for the Bills DST in its last four games.

The Bills DST has been one of the most reliable units in Fantasy this season, scoring double-digit Fantasy points in all but three games, and has been especially productive lately. With a favorable matchup at Oakland, it's an easy call for Week 16.


Bills' Duke Williams escorted to locker room with possible concussion


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Bills defensive back Duke Williams was escorted to the locker room during the second half of Sunday's game against the Packers in Week 15. Williams sustained the injury while defending a pass to Randall Cobb and will be evaluated for a concussion. He registered six tackles before leaving the game.

Bills DST holds its own


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Going against one of the league's most explosive offenses, the Bills performed adequately on defense Week 14 at Denver, limiting the Broncos to 24 points on 306 yards. Of course, this Broncos team is different from the one we've grown accustomed to seeing over the last few years, relying more on the running game. Peyton Manning attempted only 20 passes, completing 14 of them for 173 yards.

The Bills did intercept Manning twice and also recovered a fumble, but they went without a sack for the first time this season. The end result was eight Fantasy points for its DST in standard CBSSports.com scoring, bring down its average of 17.5 from its previous six games.

Given the matchup, you shouldn't have expected much more from the Bills DST in Week 14, and despite its reliability this season, you'll probably want to sit it for Week 15 against Green Bay as well. It should come roaring back Week 16 at Oakland, though.


Bills on a roll defensively


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) One week after limiting the Jets to three points on 218 yards, the Bills had another strong defensive showing in Week 13, limiting the visiting Browns to 10 points on 315 yards. They also scored a defensive touchdown for the second straight week, this time on an 18-yard fumble recovery return by Jerry Hughes in the third quarter.

The Bills had three takeaways in all -- the fumble along with two interceptions. They finished with just two sacks, though, after averaging 5.4 in their previous five games.

In terms of Fantasy production, the Bills DST has been surprisingly stout this season, averaging 17.5 points in its last six games, according to standard CBSSports.com scoring. Of course, it's had some favorable matchups during that stretch, which certainly won't be the case Week 14 at Denver. You might want to sit it for that one.


Bills place Leodis McKelvin on IR, sign Bacarri Rambo


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin's season has officially come to an end. The Bills announced Monday they placed McKelvin on the season-ending injured reserve list with a fractured ankle. McKelvin suffered the injury in the first half of Buffalo's 22-9 defeat to Miami in Week 11. He finishes the season with 48 total tackles.

In a corresponding move, the Bills have signed former Washington defensive back Bacarri Rambo to take McKelvin's place on the 53-man active roster.


Big plays on defense rule the day in Bills win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) The Bills defense ultimately gave up three touchdowns in a win over the Jets in Week 8, but they still utterly dominated the game in the 43-23 win.  

The Bills racked up a plethora of early turnovers and forced quarterback Geno Smith out of the starting role en route. They ended up with four sacks, four interceptions and two fumble recoveries, while holding the Jets to 312 yards of total offense.

The Bills DST unit has three games of 15 or more Fantasy points over the last four games, and head into Week 9's bye averaging 12.5 per game. They will take on the Chiefs in Week 10. 


Report: Bills DB Aaron Williams expected to play Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Barring any setbacks over the weekend, Bills defensive back Aaron Williams is expected to play Week 8 against the Jets at MetLife Stadium, according to WGR. Williams was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game with a neck injury.

Bills overwhelm rookie QB in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014)  The Bills defense bounced back nicely from a blowout loss last week, in a 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

The Bills DST overwhelmed the Vikings' offensive line for five sacks, and they also took advantage of Teddy Bridgewater's youthful struggles. Bridgewater was picked off twice in the game, and the Vikings racked up just 15 points on 276 yards of total offense in the Bills' win.

The Bills DST unit finished Sunday's game with 15 Fantasy points, their fifth double-digit effort in seven contests. They head into solid matchup next with the Jets in Week 8. 


Bills' pass rush could overwhelm Vikings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) The Bills enter Week 7 ranked sixth in Fantasy scoring among DST units, and could improve on that with a matchup against the Vikings on the way.

The Vikings' offense looked solid in Teddy Bridgewater's first start in Week 4, but things have not gone well since. The Packers and Lions' DST units have racked up 52 combined Fantasy points against the Vikings over the last two games on the strength of 14 sacks, five interceptions and two forced fumbles.

The Vikings' offense has a lot of potential, but that is for the future. Right now it is sputtering, and the Bills' pass rush, which ranks second in the league in sacks, should find success. Consider the Bills a solid starting option for Week 7. 


Tough matchup does in Bills


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) The Bills DST was on a pretty nice run until the Patriots came to town in Week 6, scoring 37 points on 416 yards. It was just the second time the Bills allowed more than 400 yards in a game this season. The 37 points were a season high by 14.

Coming off a six-sack game at Detroit in Week 5, the Bills weren't able to get to quarterback Tom Brady, sacking him just twice to equal a season low. They didn't have a takeaway.

The Patriots were coming off a rebirth of sorts, having exploded for 43 points against the Bengals the week before, so it wasn't a favorable matchup for the Bills. Still, the Bills DST held its own against the Chargers and Bears earlier this season and has earned your trust in Fantasy.

Certainly for Week 7 against the Vikings, who just got blown out by the Lions in Week 6, you'll want to keep the Bills DST active.


Bills DL Marcell Dareus gets X-rays for hand injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bills defensive lineman Marcell Dareus went for X-rays following Sunday's game against the Patriots. He hurt his hand late in the game.

Mike Williams among Bills inactives Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bills wide receiver Mike Williams, safety Aaron Williams, cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Bryce Brown, linebacker Randell Johnson, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and wide receiver Marcus Easley were all ruled inactive Week 6 vs. New England.

Bills defense surprises against Lions


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) Despite what seemed like a not so favorable matchup at Detroit, the Bills DST had a fine showing in Week 5. Not only did they limit Matthew Stafford and company to 14 points on 263 yards, but they also recorded six sacks, including three by Marcell Dareus and two by Jerry Hughes, and forced two turnovers, an interception and a fumble.

The Bills have yet to allow more than 23 points to an opponent this season, allowing an average of 17.8 points in their five games. Their six sacks brings their season total to 17.

With the Bills DST is looking like one of the more consistent units in Fantasy, it remains a viable option even with the rejuvenated Patriots coming to town in Week 6.


Bills announce Week 5 inactives vs. Lions


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions: defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee), linebacker Nigel Bradham (knee), guard Chris Williams (back), wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee), cornerback Ross Cockrell, running back Bryce Brown and offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.

Bradham and Kyle Williams were doubtful to play on the team's final injury report, and the absence of both key defenders could cause problems against the Lions offense. Easley and Chris Williams had already been ruled out Friday.


Bills DL Kyle Williams sits out practice again Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Bills defensive lineman Kyle Williams sat out practice again Thursday due to a knee injury suffered Week 4. After missing another practice, Williams' status for Week 5 against the Lions could be in jeopardy.

Bills DST gets little help in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Bills DST unit played well enough in Week 4 against the Texans, as they allowed just one offensive touchdown in a 23-17 loss.

The Bills allowed just 301 yards of total offense to the Texans, with much of Houston's offense coming on long field goals. The Bills forced three turnovers in the game, including two interceptions, and they also sacked quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick twice.

The Bills have done a decent job defensively this season, as Sunday's game was their season-high in points allowed. They take on the Lions in Week 5, in Detroit. 


Kyle Williams out for remainder of game with knee injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Texans due to a knee injury. Williams is the second Bills defender to go down with a game-ending knee injury in Week 4.


Nigel Bradham out for remainder of game with knee injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Bills linebacker Nigel Bradham has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's Week 4 matchup with the Texans due to a knee injury.

Bradham was injured while making an interception. He had to be carted back to the locker room and was later ruled out.


Bills DST a non-factor in loss to Chargers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Bills DST unit did little of note Sunday, in a 22-10 loss to the Chargers in Week 3.

The Bills defense mostly held the Chargers in check, limiting them to 336 yards and just two touchdown drives, but a lack of big players hurt them. The Bills managed just one sack in the loss, while failing to record a single turnover.

The Bills DST unit was coming off a dominant showing against the Dolphins in Week 2, and will look to get back on track in Week 4 against the Texans.  


Aaron Williams exits with leg injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Bills safety Aaron Williams was forced out of Sunday's game against the Chargers in the second half, as a result of a leg contusion. He is officially questionable to return.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Bills defensive lineman Stefan Charles is active for Week 3 against the Chargers, after being listed as probable for the game with a hip injury. 

Bills missing two linebackers in Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Bills linebacker Keith Rivers (groin) is inactive for Week 3 against the Chargers, as he continues to deal with a groin injury. Rivers missed Week 2's game as a result of the same injury, and he is joined on the sidelines by fellow linebacker Randell Johnson (knee).                                                                                                 

Two Bills defenders hurt in Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Two Bills defenders came out of Sunday's 31-10 win over the Dolphins with injuries, the team announced Monday.

Linebacker Randell Johnson (knee) and defensive lineman Stefan Charles (hip) came out of the game with injuries, though it is not yet clear how serious they are. 


Leodis McKelvin picks off first pass in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Bills defensive back Leodis McKelvin had just three tackles in Week 2 against the Dolphins, but managed to come up with a big play in the 29-10 win Sunday.

McKelvin, who opened the season with a 10-tackle performance in Week 1, had just three solo stops Sunday. However, he picked off his first pass of the season in the fourth quarter to end a Dolphins drive.
