Buffalo at Jacksonville
The Bills right now look to be one of the favorites in the AFC and a large part of that is Josh Allen returning to MVP form after struggling early in the season. Allen has been remarkably efficient on the year; while he sits just 14th in yards per attempt, he’s 7th in adjusted net yardage, which factors in touchdowns, interceptions, and sacks. In other words, he’s making big plays beyond the scale of his volume and avoiding drive-killing mistakes. He throws to a diverse and gifted receiving corps, starring go-to man Stefon Diggs (6 catches and 72 yards a game) and a handful of situational targets. Last week it was slot man Cole Beasley (10 for 110) leading the way, but Emmanuel Sanders, Gabriel Davis, and the tight ends also find their way into the box score when needed.
The Jaguars’ weak pass defense wasn’t quite at rock bottom when Tua Tagovailoa carved them apart (33 of 47, 329 yards, 2 touchdowns) in London 3 weeks ago. Last Sunday, fresh off a bye, they allowed beleaguered Seahawks’ backup Geno Smith to complete 20 of 24 and throw 2 touchdowns of his own. There may indeed be no bottom for this talent-starved unit. They’ve spent the past half-decade dealing away talent and drafting poorly in its place. Now, they trot out a cornerback rotation that’s shaky on a good day. Shaquill Griffin, Tre Herndon, and Nevin Lawson have been predictably picked on all year, and rookie Tyson Campbell has yet to find his footing. Together they’ve allowed massive stat lines to wideouts week after week, with 6 of them (plus Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki) clearing 100 yards already. The secondary is done no favors by a weak pass rush that sits tied 30th league-wide with just 12 sacks. Overall, they make for a prime fantasy matchup every week, regardless of game flow. If ho-hum passers like Tagovailoa, Tyrod Taylor, and Teddy Bridgewater can maximize their upside here, it’s scary to imagine what Josh Allen can do.
