1. A Devin Singletary fantasy stat you should know

We know sophomore running back Devin Singletary is important to this Bills offense. Even though Buffalo is throwing the ball more this season, Singletary is averaging 81.8 scrimmage yards per game.

Here's a stat from PFF on Singletary that could help you determine if he should be in your starting lineup this week.

Buffalo Bills – Devin Singletary has avoided eight tackles on his 16 catches. He's already topped his rookie season total when he had six on 29 catches.

2. PFF ranks Buffalo's offense here ahead of Week 5

PFF has hopped on the Bills train giving Bills quarterback Josh Allen the highest QB grade after Week 4, and now they have Buffalo's offense ranked No. 4 heading into Week 5. The reason why the Bills stand out amongst the 32 is because of Josh Allen's connection with his receivers this season.

4. BUFFALO BILLS

The improvement we have seen from Josh Allen in 2020 compared to his first two seasons in the league is unbelievable. He is currently sitting pretty with an 89.9 passing grade in 2020, 28 grading points higher than his 2019 regular-season passing grade. For reference, that would be the fifth-largest improvement we have ever seen from a quarterback from one year to the next.

The step forward in accuracy is clear for all to see. His wide receiver trio of Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and John Brown — as well as the scheme in which he plays — have generated a high rate of open throws for Allen this year, and he's responded by throwing an accurate pass at the 12th-best rate in the league when targeting those open receivers. Last year, he ranked dead-last among quarterbacks in that very metric.

3. Josh Allen moves up in these QB rankings

NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling provides weekly rankings for all NFL quarterbacks. Per Josh Allen's play the last four games, it's no shock that he has climbed the ranks again from No. 4 to No. 3 in this week's rankings. Allen's offense currently ranks second averaging 316 passing yards per game and second in average yards per passing play with nine.

3. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

2020 stats: 4 games | 70.9 pct | 1,326 pass yds | 9.0 ypa | 12 pass TD | 1 INT | 83 rush yds | 3 rush TD | 3 fumbles lost

His first four games represent one of the most incredible metamorphoses I've seen at the position. After trimming his interceptions last year, Allen has rounded out his passing skill set in 2020. He's improved from second-worst to second-best in deep passing, he's on point with ball location (70.9 completion rate) and has even started throwing receivers open with keyhole passes, as evidenced by back-to-back gems to Cole Beasley and John Brown at the end of the third quarter in Las Vegas. If there's one weakness left, it's ball security as a runner.
