Each week, Tristan Cockcroft will look at each game of the NFL slate and break down some of the more notable stats to help fantasy owners make their lineups.

Bye Week: Baltimore, Detroit, Houston and Washington.

Atlanta at Buffalo: RB Warrick Dunn has rushed for 100-plus yards in four of his last six games and ran for 106 yards and two touchdowns in his only career game against the Bills. In addition, Buffalo has served up 143.0 yards per game and three touchdowns on the ground. Dunn might still surrender goal-line carries to T.J. Duckett, making him less appealing in touchdown-heavy leagues, but he's quick enough to rack up a nice yardage total and be a useful No. 2 or 3 option. ... RB Willis McGahee has averaged 71.4 rushing yards in his last five games, and he's coming off a terrible 34-yard showing against the Buccaneers. Still, he's the key to the Bills' attack, and it's encouraging that these Falcons allowed Shaun Alexander 144 yards and a touchdown in Week 2. Buffalo should be able to hang in this game enough for McGahee to bounce back with nice numbers, keeping him in must-start status.
