Here were some thoughts I had re: Buffalo over in the Draft/Waiver forum earlier today..
I wrote:I was at the game yesterday, and the loss of Takeo Spikes is a huge loss for that D. Immediately after he left Warrick Dunn gashed them for a 59-yd run that set up an improbable FG, and Dunn and Duckett then pretty much took turns running over them the rest of the game. Spikes is the heart and soul of the defence, and without him this defence just really isn't that good, they become an average unit. Even the week before Spikes went down, they got gashed pretty badly by Cadillac Williams. On the major call-in shows after the game, consensus local opinion is that Losman sucks, and the defence is way overrated and doesn't have the depth as advertised, and that is why the Bills are losing.
If I were you, I'd drop the Bills for the Steelers, who I think are an elite unit and should never be on waivers. But I would also drop them for either the Bucs or the Bengals, both of whom are playing well and I think would be improvements.
Bottom line is I think this affects the Buffalo D big-time, and I don't think they will be a studly fantasy defence anymore. They will probably only be an average in real-life too, for that matter. Once teams figure out to stack the box against McGahee and force Losman to do something to beat them, that team will be in huge trouble.
BTW, the Kelly Holcomb watch is offically on in the Buffalo call-in shows.. over-under three games..
