LeSean McCoy active for Bills, limited work expected for fantasy owners

Miami (3-4) won its second straight game.

He wasn't the only player who battled injury.

In 2013, as a sophomore, he started 12 games and tallied 1,424 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Bills coach Rex Ryan said he was of the belief that McCoy was 100 percent going into the game. "I just felt all right", McCoy said of his return to practice Friday. "We're confident with the guys we have behind him".

The Bills also lost safety Aaron Williams (head/ neck) when Jarivs Landry laid a high block on him and WR Marquise Goodwin as his head hit the turf when trying to make a catch (concussion).

Yeah, they're still 4-3, but the Bills had already used up the obligatory bad loss - that fiasco against the Jets - and with road games coming up at Seattle, Cincinnati, and Oakland it could be argued they blew their most winnable game away from New Era Field over the final 10 weeks.

On Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, Ajayi rushed for 214 yards on 28 carries, ripping off the yardage in chunks from the start of the game, when his first two carries went for 10 and 11 yards each, all the way through the fourth quarter when he broke free for a 53-yard gain. Overall, Miami had 256 rushing yards. And, on Sunday, Robert Woods, No. 2 to Watkins, was inactive with a foot problem of his own.

"I know this - every time No. 23 kept getting the ball, he was popping a run", Gase said. "At the running back position, in our room, we want to be the best players on the field at all times". You know, we have a job to do on Sunday.

Buffalo's defense continued to play well in the third quarter, and after two awful three-and-out possessions, the Bills struck lightning.

Miami closed the first-half scoring with a 33-yard field goal by Franks.

Through week 7, Ajayi has 535 rushing yards and five touchdowns.

His dominance continued in the second half. On the first play after a Miami punt, Goodwin blew past Miami cornerback Byron Maxwell and Taylor threw a gorgeous pass which Goodwin hauled in for a 67-yard touchdown and a 17-6 lead. Gillislee had a 44-yard touchdown late in Buffalo's Week 6 win over the San Francisco 49ers. The Bills offense is not impressive on their first drive. "He left the game with some soreness in the hamstring and that's why he never returned". Tannehill ended up 15-25 on his tries for 204 yards.

In the first five weeks, the Dolphins did not have a single player rush for over 50 yards.

With the run game working so well, the Dolphins have not had to ask Tannehill to outright win the game for them.

Ajayi won't sustain a 200-yard-per-game rushing pace for the rest of the season, but this is no fluke.

If the Bills win against the Dolphins, the next game that they will play, which is against Tom Brady and the Patriots, will be the top seed of their division and the third seed of the AFC.
