Buffalo vs Miami
The Bills’ air attack has developed into arguably the NFL’s most potent, averaging 319 yards and 3 touchdowns since Week 3. That’s come over a variety of game types and scripts; Allen’s extreme efficiency tends to cover over the low-volume weeks. Even with a comfortable lead over the 1-6 Dolphins, he’ll be able to sample from his impressive corps of pass-catching talent to make plays and maximize his volume. Stefon Diggs hasn’t yet wowed the fantasy world with a splash game, but he remains the go-to and has yet to fall below 60 yards. The most pleasant surprise has been Emmanuel Sanders, who’s averaged 5-78-1 over this 4-game stretch. This deep, dynamic group shouldn’t have trouble weathering tight end Dawson Knox’s multi-week absence.
The Dolphins’ pass defense has quickly tumbled from the team’s only real strength to the bottom of the NFL’s barrel. Only Washington has given up more yardage, and they’ve already allowed 10 different pass-catchers to top 70 yards (4 have topped 100). Top cornerback Xavien Howard’s return from injury did nothing to stop the bleeding in last week’s loss to the Falcons. Howard and Byron Jones played well, but Matt Ryan and his receivers still made one big downfield play after another on their way to 336 yards and 2 touchdowns. There are simply too many holes to exploit here, and it’s always easy for opposing passers to find them against the Dolphins’ toothless pass rush (dead last in hurry rate, 22nd in sacks). Weak links like Eric Rowe and the linebackers are beaten easily on cross and post plays, and the team will miss safety Jason McCourty for the next few weeks. Josh Allen and the Bills’ versatile receivers have shredded much better units than this one. They shouldn’t have trouble producing as much as they want or need to Sunday.
