Tennessee Titans linebacker Jayon Brown A common refrain

All-22 analysis: following the Buffalo Bills’ loss to the Green Bay Packers is that the offense and Josh Allen need to take what the defense gives them. What this often suggests is taking advantage of soft spots on shorter range throws with favorable match-ups , often on linebackers. For this week’s opponent preview we’ll look at linebacker Jayon Brown and get into the Titan’s linebacker philosophy just a little bit. Play 1Jayon Brown is coming in fast and looks to have an advantage as a result of a head of steam and only Kenyan Drake looking to stop him. Low position from Drake and poor push from Brown result in Ryan Tannehill being able to get the ball off with only minimal pressure. Brown is the lightest Titans linebacker to see significant reps and his lack of push is not limited to this play. Play 2Brown can be pretty agile though and shows off a good bend from the edge rush here. What’s most impressive is his ability to turn around at the end while maintaining balance. What’s most important to note here is that the Titans love to move their linebackers all over and mix and match players. Including Brown, six linebackers have seen 20% or more of the total defensive snaps this year for the Titans. The Bills have only four, and in that group Lorenzo Alexander has seen significant time as a defensive tackle rather than linebacker. Play 3This play is a great summary of what Jayon Brown brings to the table. He’s stopped in his tracks initially, but wiggles away just enough to make the tackle. A subtle reason Brown is in position is that he tries to cut back to the inside at the last second, forcing right guard Brandon Linder to twist and lose a significant amount of leverage. Play 4A lot of what Jayon Brown is asked to do should look familiar to Bills fans after watching Preston Brown. Jayon is frequently in the “read and react” role in the middle of the field. On this pass, he both reads and reacts quite well. The tackle isn’t textbook but the Titans as a team lock down the play immediately. Play 5Against the Eagles, Wesley Woodyard left the game early with an injured shoulder. Woodyard is their every down linebacker. With Woodyard out, the Titans turned to Jayon Brown. Like above he’s covering the middle and reacts to the running play. Brown shows good discipline and is where he should be if he was needed to clean up the run. Play 6Brown is caught head on which allows the lineman to have good leverage. As a result, Brown is a non-factor on the stop. Brown’s presence still requires someone to block him though, which put his linemen in better position. Play 7For coverage , when asked to go man to man it’s typically against a running back. Brown’s sideline to sideline speed keeps him in good position for this play. In ConclusionJayon Brown will be a prominent part of the Titans’ defense when the Bills host Tennessee this week. Brown himself is a solid player that should be expected to have an impact on the game. Beyond Brown, the Bills will need to focus on linebacker preparation this week as a result of the mix and match approach that Mike Vrabel and Dean Pees have taken so far with their linebackers. Knowing who is on the field provides less clues as to what to expect.Buffalo Bills fantasy football recap: Defense leads the way The Buffalo Bills continued to provide poor fantasy football scoring returns last week. At this point, unless the fantasy league you’re playing in is a 16-team league, there really aren’t any Bills players who are worthy of starting, and there really aren’t many worthy of rostering, either.Buffalo’s leading receiver on Sunday was Zay Jones, who managed to pull in three catches for 20 yards. Jones is also the team’s leading receiver on the year, totaling 13 receptions for 164 yards on the whole season thus far. Kelvin Benjamin leads the team in targets with 26, but he’s only managed eight catches on the season. Sunday was an ugly game from a fantasy football perspective, but there were a few players who actually managed to make it into double-figures. QB Josh AllenThe Bills’ rookie once again provided some value with his legs , scoring on a 14-yard rushing touchdown on Buffalo’s first drive of the game. Unfortunately, that one play represented almost his whole day’s fantasy output, as he managed just 82 yards passing and 19 yards rushing overall. He was also intercepted once, giving him a total of 10.2 fantasy points on the day. Allen has another difficult match-up ahead of him next week, as the Bills go on the road to face the Houston Texans and their scary-good defensive line.RB LeSean McCoyShady had his best game since Week 16 of last year, rushing for 85 yards on the day. While he certainly wasn’t efficient, as he did so on 24 carries, he still managed to gain the yardage. He also caught two passes for 23 yards, bringing his total fantasy points to 11.8 on the day. Perhaps this will be a springboard for McCoy to bigger numbers as the year continues. At the very least, it appears that offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is going to feed his running backs the football in order to take the pressure off of Allen until the rookie is a bit more comfortable.Bills D/STBuffalo’s defense did a whole lot of things right on Sunday , holding the Tennessee Titans out of the end zone all afternoon. They also managed to force three turnovers, recovering two fumbles and intercepting one pass. The Bills also sacked Marcus Mariota twice. When all was said and done, their defense scored 12 fantasy points, good for its second-highest scoring output on the year. The Bills D/ST is a fairly good play at this point, with 12 sacks, three interceptions, and six recovered fumbles on the year. With availability in 98% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues, the Bills’ defense might be worth an add over the next few weeks.
