1. Kay Adams predicts a good day for John Brown

Through the first two weeks of the season, John Brown has been one of the most consistent players on the field, and in fantasy football. The Bills wide receiver had a combined 10 catches for 152 yards and two touchdowns through the first two weeks of the season. He has a total of 27.2 fantasy points which is ninth best for a wide receiver after two weeks. Brown has had a touchdown in the past three games dating back to last season. A touchdown catch on Sunday would make it four straight games and he would be the first Bills player to have that streak since Sammy Watkins in 2015. Good Morning Football's host and fantasy expert, Kay Adams explains why John Brown is a sleeper play in fantasy for Week 3. 

"I like him, Adams stated. "Ramsey is going to hang out with Diggs all day, making things tough on him, so a big-time opportunity for [Brown] to break out. I wouldn't be surprised if we see 80 or more yards and another touchdown this week for John Brown taking on the Rams. This game should be high-scoring, and if Stefon Diggs is busy, John Brown should get busy."

2. Quinton Jefferson's familiarity with the Rams

Before coming to Buffalo, Quinton Jefferson spent a few seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and is very familiar with what the L.A. Rams do. Jefferson had 59 tackles, 7.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries in the 39 games he played with Seattle. He explained what these Bills defensive players have to think about when they go up against an offense like the Rams on Sunday. 

"I think the biggest thing is just keeping your composure," Jefferson said. "And really locking into your fundamentals and techniques. As you can see, they have a lot of like pre-snap motions and movement. They like to play around with the tempo when they might come to the line and hard count it or come to the line and quick snap it. So, for the D line, we have to get set, get ready, and make sure our eyes are in the right place and really come off the ball. They're going to do a good job of running the outside zone schemes and off of that, they have the boot action and everything. The biggest thing for our defensive front is just getting penetration and not running sideways."

3. Josh Allen cracks top 5 in QB Index writer Chris Wesseling released his QB Index for week three and he ranked Josh Allen No. 5. The Bills quarterback was ranked 20th before week one and jumped up to sixth before week two.

Bills fans have been eagerly anticipating the day when a national broadcaster could realistically describe their quarterback's passing style as "feathering it in there," as CBS' Adam Archuleta did during Allen's scintillating 11-play, 97-yard touchdown march in Buffalo's second drive at Miami. Allen went on to unfurl a panoply of parabolic lofts and high-arching jump shots, allowing the playmaking trio of Stefon Diggs, Smokey Brown, and Cole Beasley the time to track the ball and beat their defenders in coverage. If this is the year Allen is patiently going through his progressions and adding the long-awaited touch pass to his overwhelming physical gifts, it changes everything -- not only for his own development but also for Buffalo's Super Bowl aspirations. This team's quarterback can pull off plays other team's quarterbacks can't even imagine. That's an incredible edge, one Allen is going to need now that he's set to square off against competition stiffer than the Jets and Dolphins.
