These contests are intended to be fun as you’re watching the game. It’s incredibly difficult to get a real edge as there are so few options, and in MME contests, there are often many duplicate lineups. One play or one penalty can change the entire outcome of the game.
The #1 seed in the AFC and a first-round bye in the playoffs are on the line. Two of the best teams in the league. Two of the best quarterbacks now and over the next decade in the NFL going at it. This sets up as one of the best regular season games of the season. The Over/Under is set at a high of 49.5 points. The strategy here is to lock in as many pass catchers connected to Joe Burrow and Josh Allen as possible. Forget about kickers and D/STs.
- Bengals RT Lael Collins OUT
- Bills S Jordan Poyer Questionable
Josh Allen - Captain/Flex
Josh Allen ranks ninth in passing yards per game (268.6) and third in pass touchdowns per game (2.1) and leads a Bills offense that ranks third in EPA/Play, second in Success Rate, third in Pass Rate Over Expected (PROE), and fourth in Early Down Pass Frequency (EDPF). Allen has also added 746 yards and 7 touchdowns on the ground. The dual-threat Allen is the top choice at captain in this favorable fantasy game.

Diggs ranks eighth in targets per game (9.6), eighth in catches per game (6.7), fourth in receiving yards per game (88.3), and tied for third in receiving touchdowns (10).
