The Broncos are allowing the most points to fantasy quarterbacks this year and the Seahawks absolutely dominated the Broncos D in last year's Super Bowl.
The Bills are just 21st against fantasy quarterbacks, I think Rivers will have a solid game in Buffalo this week
  
Staff Rankings

Expect the Seahawks to come out and try to establish a solid running attack with Marshawn Lynch leading the way so they can keep the Broncos offense off of the field. But if they fall behind the Seahawks will have to pass to catch up. This could be one of those games where Wilson comes close to 300 passing yards. A rarity most weeks.
Looked like a genius against the Seattle Seahawks, a game in which even I gave him no chance. After a stellar 2013, it has to be said. I think Rivers is for real. Until he proves me wrong he deserves to be considered a QB 1 during most weeks.

At home and Denver D really hasn't been amazing so far, so he could do enough for you.
Rivers is evidently matchup proof, but road game vs Bills isn't going to be easy.
