Week 2 Start 'Em or Sit 'Em

Start of the Week: Josh Allen at Giants: Allen wasn’t particularly good in the Week 1 opener against the Jets, but he was far better than Sam Darnold. Darnold played scared in the pocket and missed a ton of throws, whether it was on him or his receivers. Despite the lackluster game, Allen still managed to finish as the QB16 for the week on the heels of his dual-threat ability. Allen had one touchdown each as a passer and runner. He tossed a couple interceptions, but the pick-six was extremely unlucky, as it hit off Cole Beasley’s thigh and popped into the air to C.J. Mosley. Allen is technically going back out on the “road” for an away game Week 2. But the Bills are simply playing in the same stadium they played last week. They’ll face both the Jets and Giants in their respective home openers at MetLife Stadium. The Giants were absolutely shredded by Dak Prescott Week 1, surrendering 405 yards and four touchdowns through the air. Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and even Randall Cobb were running free all afternoon. The Giants’ defensive line recorded Football Outsiders’ second-worst pass-rushing score, better than only the Broncos. Under DC James Bettcher, the G-Men play a ton of man coverage, and that typically benefits mobile quarterbacks who can get out of the pocket and run when defensive backs have their backs turned to the line of scrimmage downfield. The Giants yielded the seventh-most rushing yards to quarterbacks a season ago under Bettcher. Prescott didn’t have to run last Sunday. But dual-threat QBs Blake Bortles (42 yards), Prescott (45), Deshaun Watson (36), and Cam Newton (29) all had success on the ground against New York in 2018. Allen rushed 10 times for 38 yards and one score last week. That’s just part of his game and considerably raises his floor as a fantasy prospect. The 43.5-point total for Bills-Giants doesn’t jump out as a game to attack, but there’s a non-zero chance Allen finishes Week 2 as the top fantasy scorer. John Brown should also be running free most of the afternoon.

I dont do the fantasy thing, but I was reading over nfl.com and figured I'd add what they had for the Bills to your thread:

 

Bills

 

Backfield

 

Devin Singletary, RB- 9 touches, 68 percent snap share

Frank Gore, RB- 11 touches, 29 percent snap share

 

Singletary may have lost out in touches to Gore, but he is the back to own here. He outrushed Gore and was the back used in the passing game. Gore will never go away, but Singletary presents the most upside. He is a flex option for now, but can blossom into a weekly RB2.

 

Passing Game

 

John Brown, WR- 27 percent TS, 39 percent AY

Cole Beasley, WR- 24 percent TS, 24 percent AY

Devin Singletary, RB- 19 percent TS, -1 percent AY

Zay Jones, WR- 14 percent TS, 21 percent AY

 

John Brown is a name to pickup if he is out there on the waiver wire. He led the bills in air yards and target share and if there is one thing we know about Josh Allen is, he is not afraid to throw the ball downfield. Beasley is the only other viable fantasy option here. He presents a high floor, but a low ceiling in PPR leagues.
