Kickoff: Sunday, September 27th, 1:00 PM EDT
Location: Bills Stadium, Orchard Park, New York
Betting Odds: BUF -2.5, 47 o/u total via Oddsshark
Josh Allen (Start, QB1)
Josh Allen is on fire coming off two of the best games of his career. Now the true test comes and it will be interesting to see if he can find the same success against a defense that isn’t Miami or the Jets. Allen will always give you a solid rushing floor but his inaccuracy is something you have to live with when starting him. His big arm and quick legs offer plenty of big-play potential.
Devin Singletary (Start, Low-end RB2), Zack Moss (Flex, RB3)
The carries between these two have been split almost down the middle. Devin Singletary has just six more carries and should continue to get the edge over Moss for the time being. Moss missed practice Wednesday with a toe injury and it is unclear his status for week 3. The Rams are giving up 128.5 rushing yards per game right now and I would expect either of these two to be decent plays this week. Zack Moss did not practice Wednesday and is on the injury report with a toe injury. Monitor his status, as Singletary becomes a much more appealing option if Moss sits.
Wide Receivers/Tight Ends
Stefon Diggs (Start, WR2), John Brown(Flex, WR3), Cole Beasley(Sit), Dawson Knox (Sit)
Stefon Diggs looked like the receiver we thought he could become in week 2. He was snagging balls all over the place and finished with 8-153-1. It will be interesting to see how he fairs against a talented Rams’ secondary but he cannot be sat unless you are extremely spoiled at receiver. John Brown also had a nice outing and is still capable of big plays for the Bills. I would certainly manage your expectations this week with him and I don’t think he has a huge ceiling in this matchup but you never know with his speed and Allen’s arm strength.
Los Angeles Rams
Jared Goff (Sit, QB2)
I don’t love Goff by any means this week against a stout Bills’ defense. He is a mid-tier option against a unit that is in the top-ten against QBs.
Malcolm Brown (sit), Cam Akers (Sit), Darrell Henderson (Sit)
I am avoiding this backfield altogether this week. It was already a headache to begin with and now Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown are both dealing with injuries. If Darrell Henderson ends up being the only man standing when the dust settles and you don’t have another option, then go for it. But I am staying far away.
Wide Receivers/Tight Ends
Robert Woods (Start, WR2), Cooper Kupp (Start, WR2), Tyler Higbee (Start, TE1)
It isn’t an ideal matchup for Robert Woods or Cooper Kupp but you can’t sit them in most instances. Just know that they may not perform up to the level we are used to in PPR. Tyler Higbee might be a different story and he is probably the receiving threat I like the most this week. Higbee had a monster week last week and I think that the Bills’ can be exploited through the TE much easier than they can on the outside. Look for Higbee to rumble yet again.
