against the Buffalo Bills Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , but their superior talent ultimately prevailed in a 25-6 victory. For most of the contest, New England was contained by Buffalo’s rejuvenated defense, which played with far more emotion and discipline than it did during a Week 7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts the week before.Many of New England’s big-name performers failed to register much in terms of fantasy football scoring, but the Patriots did have some players who turned in solid outputs overall.RB James WhiteNew England’s leader in targets (74) and receptions (55) on the year led the team in both categories Monday night, as he saw 13 passes come his way on the evening. He managed to catch 10 passes for 79 yards. While he was not nearly as successful as a rusher, managing only 15 yards on 8 carries, he did score on a 1-yard touchdown plunge in the fourth quarter. White scored 20 fantasy points on the game, his second consecutive 20-plus point fantasy outing and his third such outing this season.Patriots D/STThree sacks, one fumble recovery Authentic Kyle Williams Jersey , and one interception returned for a touchdown are all big fantasy football scoring plays. Not allowing a touchdown is also outstanding. When the team defense in your lineup does all of these things in one game, you usually have an angry opponent. New England’s defense and special teams racked up 20 points this week, which was the top score at the position for Week 8. Fantasy defenses are averaging 14.9 points per week against Buffalo. Yikes.WR Julian EdelmanTom Brady’s favorite wide receiver had a big day, catching 9 passes for 104 yards. After missing the first month of the season due to a PED suspension, Edelman has caught 25 passes for 251 yards and 2 touchdowns in the four games since he returned to the lineup. While he was unable to score a touchdown yesterday, his overall numbers were still good for 16.2 fantasy points.Buffalo Bills to host, sign former Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan The Buffalo Bills lost punter Cory Carter to a torn ACL against the Cleveland Browns. Reportedly, they will host another punter to provide competition for incumbent Colton Schmidt.According to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, the Bills will host veteran punter Jon Ryan on a visit. Ryan was released by the Seahawks on Monday http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/phillip-gaines-jersey , only months after saying that he would make general manager John Schneider look “really dumb” for trading up in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft to select Michael Dickson, a punter from the University of Texas. Ryan will still have that chance, but he will have to continue his career elsewhere in order to do so.For his career, Ryan has averaged 44.7 yards per punt, with 311 of his 914 career punts being downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. He has a career net yards per put average of 38.4. All of those numbers are very similar to Schmidt’s career ratios, albeit with Buffalo’s punter’s statistics coming on a smaller scale. Schmidt has averaged 44.1 yards per punt over his career, with 101 of his 322 punts downed inside the 20-yard line of his opponents. His career net yards per kick average is 39.7. On this preseason, Schmidt and Ryan have once again put up very similar numbers. Schmidt has averaged 45.7 yards per punt on 6 kicks, while Ryan has averaged 45.6 yards per punt on 5 kicks. The big difference is in the net yards per punt total for both men http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/stephen-hauschka-jersey , as Schmidt’s kicks has netted 41.3 yards and Ryan’s have averaged 29.8 yards per kick. Both men trail the rookie Dickson in both the overall average (51.7) and the net average (50.2) yards per kick by a significant amount.With Stephen Hauschka, another former Seattle special teams player, already in the fold in Buffalo, the connection is a clear one. The Bills appear to be intent on adding some competition for Schmidt this summer.UPDATE: Per Ian Rapoport, Ryan will sign with the Bills when his flight lands.
