NFL Week 1 Regular Season

Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin

Ben Roethlisberger completed 8-of-10 passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' third preseason game against the Lions. Roethlisberger looked comfortable pushing the ball down the field which was a welcomed sight for anyone who saw him play last year. He frequently looked to throw past the sticks and even hit Diontae Johnson on a 43-yard strike. Both of Roethlisberger’s scores went to rookie tight end Pat Freiermouth. Detroit will field one of the weakest secondaries this year, so it’s dangerous to take away too much from this game. However, an increased emphasis on downfield throws would drastically change the complexion of Pittsburgh's passing attack. This performance should at least give fantasy managers the confidence they need to draft Steelers receivers at their current salaries.

Buffalo Bills DFS Spin

Josh Allen completed 20-of-26 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's preseason finale against the Packers. Allen was facing the Packers' second-team defense and responded with flawless football. Stunning, we know. It's just a reminder not to sleep on Allen as the potential QB1 overall after last year's electrifying breakout campaign. It is tempting to believe Allen is due for some sort of statistical regression, but superstars don't always conform to our models. Allen is a full-blown superstar heading into his age-25 season.

Steelers vs. Bills Betting Prediction

The Bills are 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games, are 9-2 against the number in their last 11 games overall and are 7-2 at the betting window in their last nine games as a home favorite. Buffalo has also covered in five of its last seven games in September and is 12-4 against the spread in its last 16 games in Week 1. On the other side, the Steelers are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall and are 3-7 against the number in their last 10 games in Week 1.

NFL WEEK 1 BETTING PREDICTION: BUFFALO BILLS -6.5
