Los Angeles Chargers DFS Spin
Justin Herbert completed 37-of-49 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns in the Chargers' 34-28, Week 11 win over the Jets The 366 yards were a new career high for Herbert, who had 277 in the first half as the Chargers raced to a 24-6 halftime lead. The Bolts were less adventurous after the break, letting the Jets vaguely "get back into it." Doing whatever he wanted against a bad defense, Allen relentlessly targeted Keenan Allen while taking no shortage of down-field shots, one of which connected for a 54-yard completion to "Tyron Johnson." The runaway OROY favorite has now turned in five three-touchdown performances across his past seven starts, and reached at least two scores every game since Week 4. Frankly, Herbert is playing at an MVP level, not just rookie of the year. He will not win that award, but the No. 6 overall pick has established limitless upside for his career. Week 12 figures to be a shootout with the Bills.
Buffalo Bills DFS Spin
Josh Allen completed 32-of-49 passes for 284 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in Buffalo's 32-30 Week 10 loss to the Cardinals. He also caught (!!!) a 12-yard touchdown from Isaiah McKenzie in one of Brian Daboll's masterpiece play-calls to cap Buffalo's opening possession. The final review of Allen's performance still varies depending on when someone tuned in. He nearly threw five interceptions through the first three quarters, missing Cole Beasley (11/109/1) and Stefon Diggs (10/93/1) for a handful of wide-open opportunities. With just three minutes remaining and the Bills trailing 26-23, though, Allen nixed checking down to Zack Moss and instead scrambled around and rifled the go-ahead touchdown to Diggs 21 yards downfield. Buffalo only fell to 7-3 because DeAndre Hopkins and Kyler Murray connected on a miraculous 43-yard Hail Mary over three defenders with one second remaining. Allen still became just the third quarterback in league history with at least 20 passing touchdowns and five rushing scores in consecutive seasons. He'll again rank as a top-five quarterback against Los Angeles' crumbling secondary following Buffalo's Week 11 bye.
