Bills: 2009 NFL Regular Season Schedule | Fantasy Football Rankings
The Buffalo Bills 2009 NFL Regular Season Schedule
This season the Bills have a new No. 1 receiver in Terrell Owens. The team is also using a new no huddle offense as they hope to throw the football with more regularity.
While I do like both of those additions, I believe their offensive line problems will be far to great for this team to make the playoffs in 2009.
Below are three sections of interest that are worth paying attention to for fantasy owners coming into the season for this team. First we have listed our fantasy players which we believe are worth paying attention to this season.
Next is strength of schedule against the run, pass and points against. Lastly we have a few games selected that will be key in telling how this team will preform for the 2009 season.
Strength of Schedule
vs Run 13th Easiest Schedule
vs Pass 6th Easiest Schedule
vs Points Given Up 9th Hardest Schedule
One area I would expect the Bills to struggle in is converting drives into touchdowns as they have the 9th hardest schedule to score against. In addition to that they are in a new offensive system and the last thing that comes in a new system is scoring touchdowns.
Other than that this team should struggle to win games at times because they are in a hard division.
Games of Interest
Weeks 1 – 3: In the first three games of the year the Bills will be without their number one running back in Lynch, due to suspension. In that time we will see if Jackson can handle the load against the Patriots, Buccaneers and Saints.
So far in the preseason the Bills offensive line has struggled mightily to open running lanes for Jackson and Lynch. If they can’t find a steady running attack this team could easily start the season 0-3.
2009 Football Projection
Early in the season this team should struggle but if they can stay focused I believe by the second half they should do well. Unfortunately for this team and coaching staff the expectations are that they will compete for he post season.
While those expectations are always nice to have I don’t believe it is realistic with so much turnover on the offensive side of the football.
