What a difference a week makes. The Buffalo Bills head into Sunday’s home game against the New York Giants at 3-2. Buffalo was coming off of a convincing win over the Miami Dolphins that had Ontario sports betting fans thinking Super Bowl, only to go to London and lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 25-20, last Sunday.
What really makes an impact for fantasy football team owners were the injuries the Bills suffered against the Jags, including a season-ending knee injury to Pro Bowl linebacker Matt Milano. It doesn’t get bigger than that, in terms of impact, on top of the season-ending Achilles injury to cornerback Tre’Davious White suffered in the Miami game.
Buffalo Bills vs New York Giants Fantasy Football
But Buffalo’s opponents this week, the New York Giants, are bad — 1-4 on the season and last in the NFL in yards gained per game (255.2). The defense is not much better, allowing 378 yards a game; only six other teams are allowing more on average. So for the Bills, there’s going to be a big opportunity to rinse out the bad taste from last week’s Jags game.
The Bills are heavy favourites for Sunday night’s game (8:20 Eastern kickoff), with 1.09 moneyline odds at BetMGM Ontario Sportsbook, with the Giants at 7.75 (the Spread there is Bills -14.5, at 1.91). That translates to -1100 for Buffalo in American odds. At the ScoreBet Ontario Sportsbook, Buffalo is 1.10 with the Giants 8.00 (the Spread there is Bills -14.5, at 1.95).

Buffalo Bills Quarterback Josh Allen Fantasy Rankings
Allen wasn’t bad against the Jaguars; he was 27-for-40 passing for 359 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He leads the NFL in completion percentage (73.1%) and is tied for most TDs thrown (five). Allen also is fifth in passing yards (1,407). He hasn’t been asked to run that much, with the upgrades the team made in its backfield (James Cook, Latavius Murray and Damien Harris). The QB has gained 120 yards on just 20 carries through five games. He is the No. 3 pick for MVP betting at Caesars Ontario Sportsbook (+550) and should feast on the Giants. He’s a must-start for fantasy teams.
Buffalo Bills Running Back James Cook Fantasy Rankings
The Bills have gone to him less in past weeks — he has 17 carries in Week 2 against Las Vegas, 15 carries in Week 3 against Washington, 12 carries in Week 4 against Miami, then just five carries last week. Still, over the season Cook has established himself as the Bills’ top running back. There will be plenty of red zone opportunities for Cook against the Giants.
Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Stefon Diggs Fantasy Rankings
Diggs had a small sideline blow-up in London, smashing a tablet, and that became a hot topic of conversation. But he had eight receptions for 121 yards, and one touchdown against the Jaguars, giving him at least 100 yards in four of five games in 2023. Diggs, who has +1100 odds at DraftKings Ontario Sportsbook to lead the NFL in receiving yards, is money for fantasy players. Look for a big fantasy performance in Week 6 against the Giants.
Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Gabe Davis Fantasy Rankings
Davis ranks among the top deep targets in the NFL, and the Giants are vulnerable against deep passes. He also had a big game against Jacksonville — six receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown, his fourth TD this season. Davis has been good all year. The Giants have allowed the 14th most passing yards per game in the NFL (226.6).
Buffalo Bills Tight End Dalton Kincaid Fantasy Rankings
Keep an eye on Kincaid’s status — he is listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game, as he has been dealing with concussion issues. He had just two receptions last week, bringing his season totals to 17 receptions, 118 yards.
Buffalo Bills Tight End Dawson Knox Fantasy Rankings
It’s the same deal with Knox — “questionable” for Sunday, with the Bills’ official site reporting he was limited in practice because he is dealing with wrist issues.
Buffalo Bills Kicker Tyler Bass Fantasy Rankings
Bass has been perfect so far this season — 9-for-9 in field goals, including a 54-yarder, the 11th longest this season. He is also 100% in extra-point kicks, hitting all 18 of his attempts.
Buffalo Bills Defense/Special Teams Fantasy Rankings
Again, Milano getting hurt is massive, as well as White. Defensive tackle DaQuan Jones was added to injured reserve as well (pectoral). The Bills signed veteran cornerback Josh Norman to help fill the hole left by White’s departure. So the unit is banged up, but again, they’re playing the Giants. The Bills lead the league in interceptions (eight) and sacks (21). It’s unclear if Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) will start, but that won’t matter either way. Start the Bills, who have +900 odds at NorthStar Bets Ontario Sportsbook to win the Super Bowl.
