Monday Night Preview
Monday Night Preview:
Buffalo Bills @ New England Patriots
Bills -7, O/U 46.5
*Rankings below are the FantasyHolic’s staff expert weekly ranks
-Josh Allen (QB #7)- Belichick is the ultimate defensive game planning mastermind but Allen has been far too dominate to sit now. He’s broken out versus tough defenses all year (see the Pittsburgh game) so don’t be too fearful against the 3rd fewest QB points matchup in football.
-Cam Newton (outside our top 20)- What a rollercoaster. The rushing upside is there as always but he has absolutely killed me and several others this year when he craps the bed every few weeks. The weapons just aren’t there to make any QB successful. Still it’s almost impossible to only throw 5 scores in a season.
-Sony Michel (RB #30)- He’s been healthy for 3 in a row now and been moderately effective. Turned 11 touches into 82 yards last week. Limited upside with only 1 target in each game.
-Devin Singletary (RB #31)- Double digit PPR totals in 3 of the last 4. Unfortunately for every back in this game we have full blown rotating committees in place.
-James White (RB #35)- A disappointing overall season but still has 42 catches on 52 targets. Like everyone on this team there just haven’t been enough touchdowns.
-Zack Moss (RB #36)- Back to back 13 carry games but only 1 target in 2 games. He’s the best overall back on the team but took a backseat after a midseason fumble. Everyone listed above is hurt by their QB being one of the league’s best red zone weapons already.
-Stefan Diggs- He’s a little banged up (toe) but still practicing. He’s given you 111 receptions/reasons to play him. Also has zero 2020 games with less than 10 PPR points. A locked in every week WR1.
-Cole Beasley- Has thrived while defenses focus on Diggs. 48 targets in his last 5 games. A rock solid WR3 with plenty of upside in this pass heavy offense.
-Jakobi Meyers- Last week was his first 100 yard game since Week 9. Expect him to keep soaking up targets but you just never know when Cam is going to have an awful night. A boom/bust back end WR3.
-Gabriel Davis- Having a strong rookie season. If John Brown returns from IR tonight then both are mostly off the radar. 52 targets and 6 scores all season. A solid WR4 if no Brown.
-Damiere Byrd- A warm body with a lot of playing time. Hasn’t hit double digit PPR points since Week 11. A long shot WR5.
-N’Keal Harry- Similar production and opportunity to Byrd. This just isn’t an offense you want to hitch your wagon to.
-Dawson Knox (outside our top 20)- After a very slow start to the season he’s reached the end zone in 3 of the last 4. You could definitely do worse. Far superior to any Pats TE.
-Dalton Keene (outside our top 20)- Caught one pass last week that he fumbled. This position as a whole has been quite literally invisible for this team all season. Please ignore.
