1. NFL Network calls this receiver a fantasy sleeper in Week 4
NFL Network's Cynthia Frelund gave her two fantasy sleepers for week four. Gabriel Davis was one of them, and the rookie wide receiver's stock has been rising throughout three weeks of the season. Frelund's advice is to grab him and stash him on your fantasy bench as he continues to become more involved in the Bills offense.
"I want to talk about Gabriel Davis, Frelund says. "He is a fourth-round pick, he has three receptions aligned out wide, four in the slot, and he's caught all seven that were headed his way…His versatility is a reason why you might want to put him on your fantasy team and stash him because he seems to be the guy, especially if John Brown is out. [Davis] will be a go-to for Josh Allen going forward."
2. Can Buffalo stop Josh Jacobs?
The Bills defense ranks eighth in the NFL against the run, allowing an average of 106 yards per game. Last week, the Bills allowed the Rams to rush for a total of 167 yards. That is the most allowed by the Bills all season, as they kept their first two opponents under 100 rushing yards. Buffalo has a tall task on Sunday when they go up against talented second-year Raiders running back Josh Jacobs. Micah Hyde elaborated on what he thinks of Jacobs, and how the Bills defense can stop him on Sunday.
"He's a beast, 28 is a beast," Hyde explained. "He's a young guy who gets it done all over the place. He runs hard, it takes multiple guys to bring him down. I watched him on film, that kid is awesome, and he's amazing. It's going to take everybody, all 11 guys on defense to bring him down. I think with that last game, we need to improve on our run fits by staying in our gaps and tackling. I think each and every game we can improve on something, and a big note for us from the last game was to improve our tackling."
3. Former Bills GM Bill Polian on Josh Allen's development
Josh Allen has been proving a lot of his doubters wrong through the first three games of the season. Allen was named Offensive Player of the Month for September, earlier in the week. He is the first Buffalo Bills player to get this honor since Ryan Fitzpatrick did in September of 2011. Bill Polian who was the Bills General Manager from 1986-1992, knows how to build winning teams, and knows what to look for in pro quarterbacks. He was on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday, and he gave some praise to Allen. Polian said Allen is capable of operating the Bills offense at a high level.
"His ability to handle the offense is now complete," Polian stated. "He understands the offense and understands what Brian Daboll wants from him. He's now capable of operating it at a high level, and there's no hesitation in his decision making. His accuracy has improved, and that's something he needed to do. Now the last thing, I and probably 20,000 other Bills fans have told him over the winter, is that he has to take care of himself. He is in many ways like Jim Kelly, he's looking for a fight half the time and wants to go run over linebackers. Well, you don't win Super Bowls by doing that, because you get yourself hurt. He needs to remember to slide, stay out of trouble, step out of bounds and live to fight another day…He's mature and he's growing up. He is now a pro quarterback, and I think there's nothing but good things ahead for him."
