When teams that are a combined 7-17 meet, it rarely excites standard football fans. However, fantasy fans know that bad teams like the Bills and Browns can produce some big fantasy numbers.

If this one stays close to the end, the game might turn on a stupid mistake. These teams have been in and lost far too many close contests this season.
The Bills need to bounce back from committing a season-high five turnovers in their loss to the Vikings last week.
The Browns get to send Peyton Hillis, who is 38 yards shy of 1,000, up against a defense that has allowed a league-worst 170.9 rushing yards per game. Delicious, no?
Colt McCoy will likely miss another game, but Jake Delhomme has completed almost 70 percent of his passes for 462 yards in the rookie’s absence. Last week he favored Ben Watson heavily.
