Bills vs. Titans: How to watch, what to watch in Week 5

Monday update: The Titans had no positives Monday morning, and so the game remains on track to be played on Tuesday.

Sunday AM update: The Titans announced they have had a staff member test positive on Sunday morning. The team closed its facility and is in communication with the league about next steps.

Get ready for some Tuesday Night Football. It appears this game will be played as the Tennessee Titans dealt with a bit of a coronavirus outbreak. Tennessee is back and is set to host the Buffalo Bills. This is the only game in Week 5 between undefeated teams.

The Titans had their game postponed last weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of a COVID-19 outbreak on the team. In its previous game on Sept. 27, Tennessee beat the Minntesota Vikings 31-30 behind six field goals from Stephen Gostkowski. Ryan Tannehill passed for 321 yards and threw an interception. Derrick Henry rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns in the victory.

For Buffalo, it is coming in with a 4-0 record after a 30-23 road victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. Josh Allen completed 24 of 34 passes for 288 yards and threw two touchdown passes. Stefon Diggs caught six balls for 115 yards. On the ground, Devin Singletary led the way with 56 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown.

Fantasy football start/sit advice

Bills

Devin Singletary: Start him. Tennessee is allowing the most rushing yards per game in the NFL this season, so enter Singletary in as a high-end third running back even with Zack Moss potentially returning to the field.

Stefon Diggs: Keep him in your fantasy lineup every single week if you have him. Diggs is averaging 100.3 receiving yards per game, which is tied for the most among all pass catchers who have played all four games.

Titans

Jonnu Smith: Get him in your lineup. Smith has three touchdowns through three games and has 181 receiving yards on 13 catches and 20 targets. Buffalo is allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to tight ends so far this season.

A.J. Brown: Start A.J. Brown on Tuesday. He is expected to return for his first game back since an injury the first week of the season. He is going up against a secondary that might be without cornerback Tre’Davious White, so he should see all kinds of passes thrown his way.
