Washington Redskins Fantasy Spin
Coach Bill Callahan said Dwayne Haskins will start Sunday. Case Keenum (concussion) remains in the protocol. A road date with the Bills' fearsome defense is hardly an ideal situation for Haskins to make his first start. Still, he likely won't be asked to do all that much; the Redskins have fed Adrian Peterson 25, 20 and 16 combined carries and targets in three games since Callahan took over. Fire up Terry McLaurin with caution against the Bills' elite secondary, which joins the Steelers as the league's only defenses that have yet to allow 100 receiving yards in a game to an opposing WR this season.
Buffalo Bills Fantasy Spin
Josh Allen completed just 16-of-34 passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns in the Bills' 31-13, Week 8 loss to the Eagles. There were serious wind gusts blustering through Buffalo Sunday, limiting each offense's passing attack. Both quarterbacks relied heavily on yards after catch for big plays. Allen's first touchdown was a 14-yarder to Cole Beasley, and the second was a 28-yard screen to Devin Singletary. Allen also led the team in rushing with 45 yards on eight attempts but did lose a bad fumble. Allen will be a QB1 next week at home against the lowly Redskins.
The under is 4-1 in the Redskins’ last five games versus an opponent with a winning record.
The under is 6-1 in the Bills’ last seven games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
NFL Week 9 Prediction
The total is really low but I don’t trust Washington to do much with a rookie under center against this pissed off Buffalo defense that was taken to the cleaners last week by Philadelphia. Plus, the Bills a run-first offense that wants to limit Josh Allen throwing the ball all over the yard, which plays into the under as well.
NFL WEEK 9 PREDICTION: REDSKINS/BILLS UNDER 36.5
