SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN: BILLS AT BENGALS

Bills (24.5) AT Bengals (26.5)

QB

Josh Allen and the Bills travel down to Cincy for what has turned into quite the rivalry. Allen priced at a slate high 11.4K and the Bills haven’t played to their ceiling yet this year and have looked sluggish at times. Josh has scored over 30 DK points 3 times this year with a high of 39.5 vs the Dolphins. Allen has 5 rushing TDs in the last 6 games and will need to shoulder the load here tonight. With his price so I think he makes for a great Captain option in GPPs as I don’t feel many will want to pay that tag even with his upside. Josh Allen has a passing/rush prop of 305.5 yards and is +165 to score a touchdown.

Joey B and the Bengals looked much better off the bye week winning a tough road game at San Francisco. Burrow has a much cheaper price tag here at 10.2K and I like the Bengals to win this game tonight. Last week Burrow hit 25+ DK points for the second time this year and should be able to feast on this banged up Bills defense. I do prefer Burrow in the Flex vs the Captain tonight as I feel others have better ceilings for the price. Passing/rushing prop for Burrow is 288.5.

RB

James Cook 6.2K looks to be a nice mid-range play here vs a defense that has surrendered 20+ DK points to the position in 5 of 7 games this year. I think they will need to use him more in the passing game tonight to help move the chains. Lat Murray is 2.6k and while he looks to be a little thin here is fine for large field GPPs in the Flex. Uncle Lenny is back and signed with the Bills and listed at $200 tonight. Keep an eye on him to see if he is even active for tonight’s game.  Cook has a 68.5 rush/rec prop tonight and is +125 to score a TD.

Joe Mixon is priced at 8K flat tonight and I will find it hard to get much of him priced 1.8K over Cook. Mixon scored over 15 DK points last week for the first time this year and should be used in both the rush and passing game. Mixon has a rush/rec prop of 83.5 yards and is a heavy favorite to score a TD at -145.

WR

Stefon Diggs is priced at 11K flat tonight which is a value on his SD price tag looking at his last 4 games. Diggs will be a guy I look to get overweight on in both the Captain and Flex positions tonight. Allen will need to lean heavy on Diggs tonight if they look to pull the upset tonight. Great floor with a 40 point ceiling. Gabe Davis 7.4K has a fair price tag and is a GPP Captain/Flex option with his boom/bust nature. Davis has 3 games over 20 DK points but also 4 games with 10 DK points or less as well. Khalil Shakir looks to have taken over the WR3 role as his snaps and production have went up the last 2 games. Shakir caught 6 for 92 last week and the 3.4K tag makes him a strong value option. Hardy is priced at $200 but most likely continues to only play around 12 snaps or less. Receiving props: Diggs 85.5, Davis 44.5, and Shakir 30.5 yards. Diggs is -110, Davis +210, and Shakir +330 to score a touchdown.

Ja’Marr Chase is always open as he says and looks to be another great Captain option tonight. Chase is priced 200 less than Diggs at 10.8K and has scored 28+ DK points in 3 of the last 5 games. I will be overweight on him in both spots tonight. Higgins has a fair price tag of 6.6K tonight and may even make my Captain pool. He hasn’t shown much upside outside of the loss to Baltimore but will be needed to step up tonight. Boyd is another guy I want to be overweight on in the Flex spot tonight. Tyler has been consistent in catching 3 or more passes in the last 6 games and found the endzone in the last 2 games. Trenton Irwin is a fine punt option if you need a cheapie but will play limited snaps. Receiving props: Chase 87.5, Higgins 54.5, and Boyd 38.5 yards with Chase a -125 favorite to score and Higgins +150/Boyd +265.

TE

Dalton Kincaid will be a guy I want to be overweight on tonight and should even make my Captain pool. The Bills will continue to lean on him as Knox remains out. Kincaid has 15 targets in the last 2 games and found the endzone last week for the first time. Dalton has a 39.5 yard prop and is +190 to score.

Big Irv Smith is a solid value for the Flex spot and finally looked relevant last week finally. Smith caught all 4 targets for 25 yards. Irv should play on around 60% of the snaps and is a value I look to get overweight on to help load up on studs. Irv has a 14.5 yard prop and +360 to score.

DEF/K

I think we see plenty of points tonight and will be underweight on both these defenses but would prefer Cincy at 3.8K over Buffalo. Both kickers are priced around 5K tonight and I will be around the field or slightly overweight on them. I think you could play the kickers in the Captain spot tonight as they should be a close higher scoring game and it will help load up more studs in the Flex.
