Bryce Brown will be the starting running back for the Buffalo Bills in tonight’s game against the Miami Dolphins.

Brown gets the nod over Anthony Dixon who previously had been listed as the starter in games without Fred Jackson. The Bills will not have Jackson at this disposal in this one. Given the Dolphins stout run defense it is hard for fantasy owners to insert any Bills running backs into their lineups this week.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins will also be active for this game. Watkins will be matched up against Brent Grimes in this one.

Inactive for the Bills are WR Marquise Goodwin, RB Phillip Tanner, CB Ron Brooks, LB Randell Johnson, OT Cyrus Kouandjio and DE Jarius Wynn. In a surprise wide receiver Mike Williams is active.

The Dolphins will have their lead rusher in this one as Lamar Miller is active. Miller is dealing with a shoulder injury and exactly how many touches he gets remains to be seen. Backing up Miller is Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas.

Inactive for the Dolphins are LG Daryn Colledge, CB Cortland Finnegan, RB LaMichael James, DT Anthony Johnson, OG Billy Turner and DE Terrence Fede.
