Game day update: The Bills will be looking to their receivers again this week to power them past the Steelers this week. Even with a stubborn Pittsburgh defense, they should still produce. ESPN projects 19.16 points for Stefon Diggs and 13.17 for Cole Beasley.
With Josh Allen playing out of his mind, the Buffalo Bills passing game has a lot to offer for fantasy football. Wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley have been especially helpful in lineups recently. Last week against the 49ers, both players saw 11 targets. Diggs caught 10 for 92 yards, and Beasley hauled in nine for 130 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Football analysis: Bills Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley
Diggs has a lock on the No. 1 receiver job, but that also means he gets a lot of extra attention from defenses. Despite cornerbacks keying in on him, he’s consistently seeing nine targets or more, and he has the kind of talent that’s makes him a threat to explode for big numbers in the box score. He’s a WR1 every week.
Beasley’s been producing at a furious pace too. Last week’s game was his second out of his last three with 100+ yards and his fourth of the season. The downside is that the games between those tend to be 50 yards or less. The volatility of his production makes him a WR3 this week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Cole Beasley and Stefon Diggs this week.
