Buffalo Bills DFS Spin
Josh Allen completed 24-of-34 passes for 288 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Bills' Week 4 win over the Raiders. Allen also scored a goal-line rushing touchdown to nail down another solid fantasy outing. There's still some chaos that needs to be cleaned up, but Allen has transformed his game with great coaching and pass-catchers around him. His accuracy is better, and the play-action offense is perfectly suited for his rocket arm. The Bills find themselves 4-0 and in control of the AFC East for now, especially with Cam Newton on the COVID-19 list. For fantasy purposes, Allen is in the top-five conversation given the Bills' high-end neutral pass rates. After four easy matchups, Buffalo faces the Titans, Chiefs, and Patriots over their next four games. It's unclear if the Week 5 Bills/Titans game will happen with coronavirus cases reaching double digits in the Titans' organization.
Tennessee Titans DFS Spin
Ryan Tannehill completed 23-of-37 passes for 321 scoreless yards and one interception in the Titans' 31-30, Week 3 win over the Vikings. He rushed for times for nine yards as a runner and also caught one of his own passes that was batted at the line. It was Tannehill's first 300-yard game of the season but also his first without any touchdowns. The Titans settled for six Stephen Gostkowski field goals and a pair of Derrick Henry rushing scores to provide the offense. Tannehill has been amazing since joining the Titans, but he won't be a recommended streamer next week against the Steelers' elite defense.
