What to do with Stefon Diggs, John Brown, Cole Beasley in Week 5 fantasy football

We go over the fantasy football outlooks for Stefon Diggs, John Brown, and Cole Beasley ahead of the Bills’ Week 5 matchup against the Titans.

The Buffalo Bills are set to face the Tennessee Titans on a rare Tuesday due to Covid-19, but the game remains in serious question. The Titans had multiple days of no positive tests, but on Sunday morning, a staff member test came back positive. The team has closed its facility and is working with the NFL to assess next steps.

This leaves Tuesday’s game in doubt, and while it could still happen, we may not know by the time fantasy football managers need to make roster decisions. If you can afford to wait until the 4:05/4:25 schedule or even Sunday Night Football or Monday Night Football, then do that. But if you have to decide by 1 p.m. and there is no new information, you would be wise to sit your Bills and Titans players.

If we get some confirmation surrounding the game, Stefon Diggs is turning into a WR1 and is a must start. John Brown has been a solid flex, but it’s worth noting he is listed as questionable with a knee injury. Even if the game happens, we likely won’t know until Tuesday if he can play. He probably will, but there is some risk. Cole Beasley is a PPR flex option.
