Bills vs. Dolphins, Week 2: How to watch, what to watch

The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins face off in Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season. We break down how to watch the game, odds for the matchup, key injuries, and notable fantasy football start/sit considerations.

The Miami Dolphins will head into their second game of the season looking for their first win, while the Buffalo Bills try to remain unbeaten. Miami is coming off a 21-11 road loss to the New England Patriots and the Bills beat the New York Jets 27-17 at home.

Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled in his season opener for Miami with three interceptions, while Josh Allen played well, throwing the ball 46 times. He completed 33 passes for 312 yards with a pair of touchdowns. If the quarterback play isn’t able to balance more toward Miami’s favor, the Bills should be heading into Week 3 with a 2-0 record.

Fantasy football start/sit advice

Bills

Stefon Diggs: The new Bills wide receiver had a solid performance in his season debut. Diggs caught eight of his nine targets for 86 yards in the victory. If he can see that type of volume from Josh Allen on a consistent basis, he could enter into the high-end WR2 category. Until we see more of a sample size, Diggs is likely looking at WR3 status for Sunday’s game.

Dolphins

Jordan Howard: His first game with his new team didn’t exactly go the way Howard wanted it to go. He rushed for just seven yards on eight carries, though he somewhat salvaged his fantasy day with a touchdown run. The Dolphins gave nine carries to Myles Gaskin and five to Matt Breida. Howard should not be trusted as anything more than a RB3 in deeper leagues heading into Week 2.
