Fantasy football players are focused on the Buffalo Bills’ game Sunday in Washington against the 2-0 Commanders (1 p.m. Eastern) just as Ontario sports betting customers are. All will be wondering if that big spike in scoring last weekend against the Las Vegas Raiders in Buffalo’s 38-10 win was legit.
That performance came a week after Bills quarterback Josh Allen imploded for four turnovers in their opening night 22-16 loss to the Aaron Rodgers-less New York Jets. So we tracked several websites that rank fantasy players by position each week to take a wider look at how several Bills players are perceived coming into Sunday’s game at Washington.
Buffalo Bills vs Washington Commanders Fantasy Football
Using ESPN, Yahoo Sports, CBS Sports & FantasyPros rankings for each position in PPR (point-per-reception) leagues, we found the consensus fantasy rankings of each Bills player for their upcoming matchup. As for the odds in Sunday’s tilt, the Bills are favoured at 1.34 on the moneyline at the BetMGM Ontario Sportsbook (with the Commanders at 3.30), and 1.33 at theScore Bet Ontario Sportsbook (Commanders 3.5).
Buffalo Bills Quarterback Josh Allen Fantasy Rankings
Allen bounced back nicely after that opening night debacle – he had zero turnovers against the Raiders, going 31-37 passing for 274 yards and three touchdowns. That has always been the critique about Allen; he is a mercurial talent but can be prone to questionable decision-making, which happens all too often. As one Bills player said, Allen is out there trying to be Superman. The Commanders have allowed 49 total points in two games, and 391 yards passing (195.5 per game). Allen has +1000 NFL MVP odds at NorthStar Bets Ontario Sportsbook.
Buffalo Bills Running Back James Cook Fantasy Rankings
Yes it’s early, but the Bills might have something of quality emerging with Cook. Back to Allen, though. As long as the QB steps back and gives the ball more to an improved backfield the team put together for this season – the sophomore Cook (123 yards on 17 carries against the Raiders, a 5.8-yard average on the season so far), Latavius Murray and Damien Harris – they’ll be in better shape. Teams like the Jets, New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals are faltering early so Buffalo has a chance to pounce. Cook has +300 odds at Caesars Ontario Sportsbook to lead the NFL in rushing yards.
Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Stefon Diggs Fantasy Rankings
Ah, Diggs. We always wonder if he is one missed pass away from a meltdown. How well Allen keeps the over-emotional talent engaged will be an ongoing storyline this season. So far, Diggs has 17 receptions, 168 yards, one TD, for a 9.9-yard average. But on the flipside, the two still have a rare connection.
Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Gabe Davis Fantasy Rankings
Davis had a strong game against the Raiders, with a team-leading 92 yards on six receptions and a TD. That was a telling improvement from Week 1, when he had just 32 yards. Still, Davis underperformed last season. If the Bills stick with the more disciplined, balanced, smarter approach to offence as we saw Sunday (not forcing the ball, leading us to ask if has Allen graduated to another level of maturity after the Jets embarrassment), do you stick with Davis, knowing he is a cog in that?
Buffalo Bills Tight End Dalton Kincaid Fantasy Rankings
A lot for Kincaid this week rides on fellow TE Dawson Knox’s health status, as Knox is listed as questionable for the game. RotoWire reported that he didn’t practice Wednesday and was sitting out again Thursday because of a back issue. Stats so far for Kincaid, the No. 25 overall pick: Nine receptions, 69 yards, 7.7-yard average.
Buffalo Bills Tight End Dawson Knox Fantasy Rankings
Again, we’re not sure he will be playing Sunday. Knox caught three passes and was targeted five times, for a 3.3-yard average, and one TD against the Raiders.
Buffalo Bills Kicker Tyler Bass Fantasy Rankings
We’re big fans of Bass, who’s 4-for-4 so far this season in field goals, including a 50-yarder, and 100% on extra points.
Buffalo Bills Defense/Special Teams Fantasy Rankings
Buffalo is tied for third in the NFL with three interceptions so far, and one fumble recovery. Dallas leads the league with seven takeaways overall. The Bills are No. 10 in the NFL in kick return yards. Buffalo has Super Bowl odds between +1000 and +1100 at various Ontario sportsbook apps.
