Buffalo Bills Sleeper Of The Week: WR Brad Smith

Having productively spent his last two games exclusively at wide receiver, Buffalo Bills third-string quarterback Brad Smith isn't really a surprise anymore. In those two games, where Smith lined up as the de facto No. 2 wideout opposite Stevie Johnson, he's hauled in 11 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown.

Johnson (13 catches, 127 yards, 2 TD in that time frame) and David Nelson (8 catches, 81 yards, 1 TD) are still the receivers that opposing defenses look to defend first, and with good reason - they've been consistently productive all season. That's allowed Smith to fly under the radar a bit.

With tight end Scott Chandler not in the lineup for tomorrow's game against the San Diego Chargers, Smith's role will again increase in importance. He's still technically third fiddle in the passing game, but without a competent No. 4 behind him, he'll need to produce - and he'll very likely have ample opportunity to do so.
