1. Who will produce more receiving yards today – Stefon Diggs or Keenan Allen?

Today's matchup with the Chargers will showcase two of the top wide receivers in the AFC. Keenan Allen and Stefon Diggs currently rank first and second respectively in receptions with 81 for Allen, and 73 for Diggs. Yesterday on Good Morning Football Weekend, Colleen Wolfe had to pick between Allen or Diggs for who she thought would have the most receiving yards in today's game. This is what she had to say: 

"I'm gonna go with the guy who came into the week with the second-most receiving yards in the league, and that would be Stefon Diggs," Wolfe said. "He averaged the third-most receiving yards per game at about 91 a clip and has over 90 over the past three games. I think that Keenan Allen is one of the most underrated wide receivers in the league but Stefon Diggs is Josh Allen's dude. He hasn't had fewer than eight targets since week four of the NFL season. Plus, [today] is Stefon Diggs birthday, so I think he's gonna go off, happy early birthday Stefon."

2. This Bills receiver can make an impact in fantasy lineups today

NFL Network Analytics Expert Cynthia Frelund recommended two sleeper picks for fantasy lineups this week and one was Bills wide receiver, Gabriel Davis. The former fourth-round pick should be seeing more playing time with John Brown being placed on injured reserve on Saturday. Davis is expected to continue to make plays which he has done multiple times throughout the season. Frelund thinks that Davis is a riskier sleeper pick but one with a lot of upside.

There are a number of less risky players you could roster on your fantasy squads (we definitely hit on tons of them on Fantasy Live; I also post a bunch each weekend), but one of my favorite upside plays this week is Gabriel Davis, the Bills receiver who has 31 targets (fourth among WRs in Buffalo), 19 receptions and three receiving touchdowns (tied for second-most on the team). His yards-per-reception mark of 14.5 is the second-highest on the team. Targeting Davis this Sunday will allow the Bills to exploit the Chargers defenders who aren't tasked with stopping Stefon Diggs or Cole Beasley -- and there's a good chance that strategy will pay out end-zone dividends.

3. Bills defense is ready to play its best ball

The Bills defense has been steadily improving in the past few games they've played. The team has 17 sacks in their last four games which is a vast improvement from having 10 sacks in the first six games. A.J. Klein is currently third on the team with 3.5 sacks so far this season and with a sack in today's game, he would extend his sack streak to three games which would mark a career-long for him. Klein spoke about how this defense is starting to play their best football at the right time. 

"I think the last few games, even though the last game we played ended how it did, we've been stringing some games together defensively," Klein stated. "Whether it's quarterback pressures, sacks, turnovers, or turnover differential we've been positive. To stay on that momentum that we've had, even though we did lose the Cardinals is influential to being a good team, for now, the end of November into December and hopefully a long stretch and run into the playoffs. So, I think that's the mentality for every team in the NFL but especially for us because early in the season we obviously had some tough games and moving forward it's imperative for us to play our best ball to help this team win."
