Tennessee Titans – 23, Buffalo Bills – 17

Matt Hasselbeck (139 total yards) turned into Matt the (game) Manager, keeping away from costly turnovers that have plagued him the last few weeks and playing a smart game to secure an important win on their playoff drive.  Ryan Fitzpatrick (282 total yards, 1 TD) had a pretty good game, but once again just couldn’t complete the necessary passes when in scoring position to get touchdowns.  If it weren’t for the epic collapses of the Eagles and Chargers, the Bills fast start followed by fast fall would be bigger news. 

With Hasselbeck only throwing for 140 yards, there wasn’t a lot of production to go around.  Damian Williams (4-62) had the best game, followed closely by Nate Washington (4-40).  Neither really did much to help fantasy teams, and neither did any other Titans receiver.

For the second straight week Brad Smith (7-72) had a good game, looking more and more like a solid receiver in the Bills offense and might be worth a grab for WR needy teams for the fantasy post-season.  Stevie Johnson (5-52, 1 TD) had his second straight productive week, scoring another touchdown and re-establishing himself as Fitzpatrick’s favorite target.  Scott Chandler (3-48) also had a decent game, but needs to get touchdowns again to be considered a fantasy factor.

Chris Johnson (23 car., 153 yards, 2 TD; 1 rec., 4 yards) is really enjoying the bottom feeder run defenses as of late, as he once again torched a bad defense, this time for over 150 total yards and two scores, including 48 yarder that was reminiscent of CJ2K of old.

For the second straight week, CJ Spiller (14 car., 83 yards, 1 TD; 3 rec., 19 yards) was the lead back and didn’t cede many carries to anyone else.  Spiller was productive, and should be considered as a flex play for post-season teams.
