Tuesday Night Reaction
Tuesday Night Reaction
Last nights matchup between the Buffalo Bills (4-0) and the Tennessee Titans (3-0) was the first regular season game to be played on a Tuesday since 2010. The Buffalo Bills and their rejuvenated offense looked to continue their recent success, against a Titans team, who has been having to worry about the coronavirus, more than who they may be playing next. However, the Bills had worries of their own, playing this game without many of their stars on the defensive side of the ball. Being without some of the key contributors, the inability to run the ball, along with some terrible turnovers, led to the Titans taking the win, 42-16.
Ryan Tannehill (TEN) – 21-28, 195 yards, 4 Total TD. It wasn’t a dominating performance for Tannehill, but he made it count when it mattered, in the RedZone. Tannehill is a fine QB2 option moving forward.
Derrick Henry (TEN) – 19 carries, 57 yards, 2 TD. Henry was bottled up for the most part, but because of turnovers, the Titans had good field position, and Henry took advantage of it. The RB is nearly impossible to stop in the RedZone.
AJ Brown (TEN) – 7 Receptions, 82 yards, 1 TD. Finally healthy, AJ Brown took advantage of the Bills depleted secondary. Fantasy owners should be considering him as a WR2/FLEX play until Corey Davis comes back, possibly even afterwards.
Jonnu Smith (TEN) – 5 Receptions, 40 yards, 2 TD. Another huge RedZone target, Jonnu was a mismatch all night. He continues to be an every week TE1.
Stefon Diggs (BUF) – 10 Receptions, 106 yards. Another stellar performance from Diggs. Playing from behind this game, the Bills had to go to the air quite often, looking mainly to their favorite target.
Josh Allen (BUF) – 26/41, 263 yards, 2 TD, 2 INT. Not a terrible game for Allen, but the turnovers did hurt. Averaging 24 fantasy points per game so far this season, Allen was only able to produce 18 this week. Better days will return, SOON.
Devin Singletary (BUF) – 11 carries, 25 yards. The Buffalo Bills faced the 31st franked run defense and only ran the ball 22 times total. 22! Baffling. Singletary wasn’t able to do ANYTHING with his limited opportunities. He should continue to be considered a weekly RB2/FLEX play.
