Buffalo Bills DFS Spin
Josh Allen (shoulder) was removed from the injury report Friday and will play Sunday against the Bengals.
The Bills enjoy a rather sparse injury report for their tilt with their AFC rivals on Sunday Night Football, with no player more important to their game plan than quarterback Josh Allen. Allen managed full practices on Thursday and Friday after missing practice Wednesday, paving the way for one of the league’s top quarterbacks to be a full-go in Week 9.
Cincinnati Bengals DFS Spin
ESPN’s Ben Baby reports Joe Mixon (chest) is “good to go” for Week 9 against the Bills. Mixon, who had 16 rushes for 87 yards and a touchdown last week against the 49ers, will suit up Sunday night against Buffalo. Mixon’s heavy usage in the green zone makes him a must-start fantasy option in a game that could shoot out.

Bills vs. Bengals Prediction:
Take the over. Without Matt Milano and Tre’Davious White, the Bills defense is, at best, an average unit. They don’t hold up well against the run and without Milano, opponents can attack the middle of the field without repercussion. Joe Burrow has looked healthy for weeks and his connection is back with WR Ja’Marr Chase.
On the other side, Josh Allen should be able to attack a Cincinnati secondary that has been better of late, but is not the stout unit it was when the team still had safety Jesse Bates (now in Atlanta). Trey Hendrickson is a little banged up as well, although Allen’s mobility negates some of Cincy’s pass rush. The bottom line is that points should not be at a premium tonight in Cincinnati.
Bills vs. Bengals NFL Prediction: OVER 50.5
