Game day update: Luckily for the Bills passing game, weather won’t be a concern Sunday, as they’ll play this contest in the State Farm dome. However, the bad news — Ian Rapoport notes that CB Dre Kirkpatrick and S Budda Baker, both questionable into this outing, should be good to go, which may impact each of these receivers ceilings for the day.
With quarterback Josh Allen out of his slump and the Buffalo Bills offense rolling again, the team’s top three wide receivers are back to regular fantasy football relevance. This week, they play the Arizona Cardinals in a matchup that could be very lucrative for their stat lines.
Fantasy Football analysis: Bills WRs Stefon Diggs, John Brown, Cole Beasley
The top receiver in the group, Diggs, is coming off a 118-yard outing last week against Seattle. It was his fourth game of the season over 100 yards and sixth over 85. He has not scored a touchdown since Week 6, but with Allen’s slump over, it’s just a matter of time. It’s worth noting that the Cardinals have given up nine touchdowns to opposing receivers this year.
Brown had one of his best games of the season last week, catching eight passes on 11 targets for 99 yards. That’s the first time since Week 2 that he’s seen more than five targets. He’s still a boom or bust player, but is not a bad option in fantasy lineups this week. Beasley was the odd man out last week against the Seahawks, catching just three passes for 39 yards. While he’s capable of some solid outings, his week to week performance can be as hit or miss as Brown’s.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Stefon Diggs and John Brown. Sit Cole Beasley.
