Ravens vs. Bills

Sunday, 4:15


Here's how the Ravens players stack up on a fantasy scale from 0-5 against Buffalo, with 0 being the low mark and 5 being the high:

Steve McNair, QB: He tied a season-high with three touchdowns last week against the Steelers. If you take away the Browns game (where he only threw four passes before suffering an injury), McNair is averaging 251 yards per game in his last seven. He's tossed six touchdowns and two interceptions in his last five. Buffalo's pass defense ranks seventh in the league (right below Baltimore). Rating - 3 out of 5

Jamal Lewis, RB: He's scored in three straight games and has seven touchdowns in his last six. Buffalo's rush defense ranks 29th in the league, and opponents are averaging 4.8  yards per carry against the Bills. Lewis has averaged more than 4 yards per carry just twice in his last nine games. Look for about 80 yards and a score from him in this one. Rating - 3 out of 5

Mark Clayton, WR: He had one of his best fantasy games of the season last week, catching seven balls for 108 yards and a touchdown. Clayton has gone over 100 yards in two of his last three games and has been a solid fantasy wide receiver this year with 913 yards and five touchdowns. Rating - 3 out of 5

Todd  Heap, TE: He's in the middle of his longest scoring draught of the season, having failed to post a touchdown in his last four games. Heap needs one touchdown to match his career-high of 7 that he set last year. Barring a monster game, he looks like he'll come up short of his 2005 totals of 75 catches and 855 yards. Rating - 4 out of 5

Matt Stover, K: He had one field goal and four extra points last week vs. the Steelers. Stover has been a top-10 kicker, having converted 24 of 26 field-goal attempts. Rating - 4 out of 5

Ravens defense: They've regained the No. 1 spot for fantasy defenses and lead the NFL with 26 interceptions. Buffalo's offense ranks 30th in the league, and quarterback J.P. Losman was picked off twice last week vs. Tennessee. On the season, Losman hasn't been bad. He's completing 63 percent of his passes and has 18 touchdowns and 12 INTs. Rating - 5 out of 5
