1. NFL.com picks these three Bills as fantasy sleepers in Week 2
Playing fantasy football this week? NFL.com’s Adam Rank put together a list of his top sleepers for this week’s game and three Bills made the list.
1. Josh Allen
Allen led the Bills to a win over the Jets and he wants to make it a sweep over the other team New York teams (even though Buffalo really is the only team playing in New York state) this week. PFF rates this as the fourth-best quarterback matchup in Week 2.
2. John Brown
Wasted little time getting into a rhythm with Allen. The Giants allowed the most points to wide receivers in Week 1. I mean, part of that should be a credit to Dak Prescott, but still, that won't stop me from using it as justification to fit my narrative.
3. Buffalo Bills defense/special teams
Rank also list the Bills as his pick for a defense this week. ESPN ranks Buffalo as the fifth-best defense and special teams group heading into Week 2.
2. Bleacher Report labels Devin Singletary a future star
Devin Singletary had a strong NFL debut last Sunday. He had 70 rushing yards, the third-most by a Bills rookie in their first game. Even more impressive was he did it on just four carries.
Bleacher Report labeled him as a rookie who already looks like a future NFL star.
_He finished with the team lead in rushing on four carries for 70 yards (17.5 YPC), added five catches for 28 yards on six targets and had a key block on a touchdown. _
_The Jets don't have a bad defensive front either: No other Bills rusher averaged even four yards per carry on the day. To put things in perspective, Singletary joined Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley as the only running backs with four or more runs of 10-plus yards in Week 1—and he did it on just four carries, while the other two needed at least 11. _
Now that the Bills have gotten the lean-on-Frank Gore decision out of their systems, Singletary should see an expanded role and could reach even bigger heights.
Singletary’s had a strong start to his NFL career but head coach Sean McDermott reiterated this week that Frank Gore was the team’s No. 1 running back heading forward.
3. Veteran tight end Lee Smith sees special traits in Josh Allen
Lee Smith has been in the NFL for a decade and has numerous guys as his quarterback. Back in Buffalo for the second time in his career, Smith see’s something different about Allen compared to who he’s played with before.
“He’s special,” Smith said. “I’ve played with good quarterbacks and have been around great quarterbacks and have been around the league with a ton of guys. He’s special. He’s an eight-year old off the field, he’s a wild man. He reminds me a lot of the ways that Ryan Fitzpatrick used to act; he likes to have a good time. But man when we get out there on Sundays he’s different, he’s a grown man, he handles his business and there’s no ups and downs.”
“I’m a wild man I can get a little emotional, passion has always been a part of my game but at the quarterback position that doesn’t work too well. He’s not up, he’s not down whether it’s an interception or a touchdown he’s the same Josh Allen and just a great leader.”
