Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown

The Bills are coming off a bye. What should fantasy owners expect out of their ground game?

The Buffalo Bills had some injuries derail their running game back in Week 7, with running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson going down, but they had one of their best offensive games against the New York Jets in Week 8 when they scored 43 points. They're coming off a bye and things should be a little tougher against the Kansas City Chiefs this week.

Running back Anthony Dixon was the primary ball carrier in Week 8 with 22 totes, while Bryce Brown saw seven carries. Dixon had most of the reps in practice and the team probably didn't want to unleash Brown off the bat because he wasn't active for game action. Now that they've had an extra week to get the team to mesh, it'll likely be a closer split. Plus, the Chiefs have been one of the toughest defenses against the run all season.

Fantasy impact: Dixon is the preferred play, but this is not a desirable spot for fantasy value this week. Both guys are worth stashing, though.
