Buffalo Bills can recoup nearly all of Vontae Davis contract money following retirement The Buffalo Bills protected themselves in the contract they gave Vontae Davis this offseason , building in several per-game roster bonuses so the veteran only saw the full contract amount if he played in all 16 games. After his abrupt retirement Sunday, that’s not the only money Buffalo will be able to go after.According to former agent Joel Corry, Davis’s retirement voids nearly all the guarantees on his contract. He’ll get paid 15/17ths of what was supposed to be his fully guaranteed 2018 salary but Buffalo will keep the rest. “Bills will get $2,282,169 of salary cap relief from Vontae Davis’ retirement,” noted Corry in a later tweet. “That’s $1,985,294 from not paying 15/17ths of his $2.25M base salary as well as $109,375 & $187,500 from his 53-man & 46-man roster bonuses.”If Buffalo wants part of Davis’s $1.5 million signing bonus, they should be able to go after a chunk of that, too. Typically speaking, teams don’t often do that. It’s seen as classless. In these circumstances, the Bills would be completely justified , though. In fact, most Bills players would probably feel annoyed if they didn’t try and recoup that bonus money.So all told, Buffalo should see in excess of $3 million in cap relief because of Vontae Davis’s mid-game retirement. Davis was scheduled to count $4.3 million against Buffalo’s cap in 2018, but that number will be much closer to $1 million by the time it’s all said and done. For fantasy football defenses, Buffalo Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman is the gift that keeps on giving.The Houston Texans were the latest team to capitalize on Peterman’s presence on the field, leading the match-up in fantasy scoring during their team’s 20-13 victory on Sunday. While the Texans’ stop unit had already turned in a fine day heading into the Bills’ fateful final two drives, the flood gates opened once Peterman tried to do more than he is capable of doing.Here are the Texans’ leading scorers for the week.RB Lamar MillerHouston’s starting halfback returned to the lineup on Sunday, and he turned in some solid runs on the day. However, the Bills were able to limit his effectiveness overall, as Miller only totaled 46 yards on 15 carries. He added 2 receptions for 25 yards on the day, giving him a total of 8.1 fantasy points. That output was his third-highest total of the season.WR DeAndre HopkinsHopkins had his worst outing of the year, yet it still is a higher fantasy score than any Buffalo receiver has managed this season. Hopkins was targeted 6 times, catching 5 passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. The targets, receptions , and receiving yardage totals were all season-lows. Buffalo corner Tre’Davious White was able to contain Hopkins, even though he was called for defensive holding three times. Hopkins’ line was good for 14.8 fantasy points.Houston D/STThe Texans’ defense had managed 10 points for the day with 90 seconds remaining in the game. They blocked a punt, they recovered a muffed punt, they had two sacks, and they had only allowed 13 points. Then, Nathan Peterman happened. Buffalo’s turnover-prone backup threw an out-pattern right into Johnathan Joseph’s midsection, and the veteran corner waltzed into the end zone for an 8-point fantasy play. Then, Peterman made a hideous attempt at impersonating Josh Allen, throwing the ball across his body and over the middle on a rollout. The pass wobbled directly to Kareem Jackson. So, Peterman was able to gift the Texans 10 points in about 45 seconds worth of game time. Houston’s 20-point day was good for second-best score out of a team defense in the league, trailing only the Baltimore Ravens, who managed 21 points in a shutout victory over the Tennessee Titans.
