ORCHARD PARK Stephen Hauschka Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — The free-spending Buffalo Bills aren’t yet done attempting to upgrade their young roster with veteran free agents, turning their attention to defensive end Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah.After officially announcing they’ve agreed to sign seven players Wednesday, the Bills are scheduled to meet with Ansah at their facility on Thursday.Buffalo is the first team Ansah is scheduled to visit since the NFL’s signing period opened.Ansah established himself as an effective pass rusher during his first six NFL seasons with Detroit, where he had 48 sacks in 80 games. His production dwindled last season when injuries led to him playing seven games before being placed on the season-ending injured-reserve list because of a shoulder problem in December.It was a disappointing finish to Ansah’s season after the Lions prevented him from becoming a free agent by designating him their franchise player a year ago.From Ghana, he’s listed at 6-foot-5 and 275 pounds, and was selected by Detroit with the fifth overall pick in 2013 draft.Ansah’s visit comes after the Bills announced they reached agreements to sign seven players, including receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley ,Buffalo also agreed to sign veteran running back Frank Gore, tight end Tyler Kroft, and offensive linemen Mitch Morse Womens Jordan Poyer Jersey , Ty Nsekhe and Jon Feliciano.The Bills are coming off a 6-10 finish and had more than $70 million available to spend under the salary cap entering free agency. Buffalo used a portion of that money to address key needs in reshaping a patchwork offensive line and adding experience to what had been an unproven group of receivers.Morse, who signed a four-year contract after spending his first four seasons with Kansas City, is being counted on to start at center, a position that was unsettled last year after Eric Wood was diagnosed with a career-ending neck injury.Brown is a speedy downfield threat, and Beasley is a proven underneath slot receiver. They join a team whose two top returning receivers were Zay Jones, entering his third year, and Robert Foster, an undrafted rookie last season.Gore is the NFL’s active leader in yards rushing and prepares to play his 15th season after spending last year with Miami. The 35-year-old will join 30-year-old LeSean McCoy in forming what would be the NFL’s oldest — and most historically productive — running back tandem.Gore’s 14,748 yards rushing rank fourth on the NFL’s career list, while McCoy is 25th with 10 http://www.thebillslockerroom.com/authentic-russell-bodine-jersey ,606 yards rushing.Buffalo Bills fantasy football recap: believe in Josh Allen Well, this isn’t exactly the recap that I thought I’d be writing this week.The Buffalo Bills went on the road and dismantled the Minnesota Vikings, winning 27-6 when they entered the game as 17-point underdogs. The Bills dominated every facet of the game, and in the process, they had quite a few stellar fantasy football performances. All three of our suggestions from last week hit, even though one of the trio wasn’t among the Bills’ three highest scorers for the week. Kicker Stephen Hauschka scored 11 points, hitting 2 field goals (one of which was of the 50-yard variety) and 3 extra points. Hauschka was one of four Bills to enter double-digits in fantasy scoring this weekend. Here were the other three.RB Chris IvoryThe veteran stepped in for LeSean McCoy and had himself a solid day. Granted, it was buoyed by a 55-yard reception on a busted play, but the Bills’ running back still managed 126 yards from scrimmage on the day. He carried the ball 20 times for 56 yards, and he added 3 receptions for 70 yards total. Even though Ivory did not manage to find the end zone Phillip Gaines Jersey , he still scored a respectable 14.1 fantasy points on the day, good for solid flex numbers by any measure. Ivory has scored at least 10.2 fantasy points in two consecutive weeks, and even though each outing was made respectable on the back of one play, that’s all it takes sometimes for fantasy relevance. Whether McCoy is healthy or not, Ivory has shown himself deserving of more touches going forward. He is at least worth an add as a handcuff for those who roster McCoy.Bills D/STThe Bills’ dominance was set up by a phenomenal outing from the team’s stop unit. Through six plays, the Bills had sacked Kirk Cousins twice, forcing and recovering two fumbles in the process. Going into the fourth quarter, the Bills had only allowed roughly 90 yards of total offense. Garbage time led to the Vikings finishing with 6 points and 292 yards, but the Bills also added 2 more sacks and 1 interception to their day. Overall, the Bills defense earned fantasy players 17 points for their troubles Womens Marshall Newhouse Jersey , good for the second-highest scoring output among all defenses in Week three.QB Josh AllenThe legend is building. Allen has leaped into his rookie season with vigor, leading the Bills to all 50 of their points this year. In terms of fantasy football production, Allen remains the Bills’ leading scorer after his outstanding day Sunday. The rookie quarterback looked poised and in total control against a stout Vikings defense, completing 15-of-22 passes for 196 yards and 1 touchdown. He also rushed 10 times for 39 yards and 2 more touchdowns on the day. He scored 27.74 points on the day, good for seventh overall in fantasy football—not just among quarterbacks. He was the fifth-highest scorer at his position for the week. Allen is also available in 97% of Yahoo! leagues. Especially if your fantasy quarterback is underperforming (Russell Wilson?) or is injured (Jimmy Garoppolo?), Allen may be worth a roll of the dice with bye weeks looming.
