Last Sunday’s 28-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars was certainly exciting, but the Bills will have to put it out of their mind, because they’re about to face their toughest test of the season, a road game against Oakland. The Bills may have several match-up advantages when they are on the offensive side of the ball this week, so FanDuel players shouldn’t be afraid to deploy any or all of Buffalo’s skill position players.
TYROD TAYLOR – QB – $7,400
Oakland allows an average of 273.5 yards through the air, so Rex Ryan should have Tyrod throwing early and often. Against Jacksonville, Taylor only put the ball up 18 times, but you can expect Sunday’s game plan to look more like it did two weeks ago against Seattle, when he connected on 27 of 38 passes.
SAMMY WATKINS – WR – $6,300
It stands to reason that if Tyrod’s throwing it, someone’s catching it, and this week, that someone could well be Watkins. Against the Jags, Taylor only gave Watkins three opportunities…but being that Tyrod only had 18 opportunities to throw, that’s not bad. Best of all, Sammy caught all three of his targets, racking up 80 yards and 9.5 FanDuel points. He could be a terrific bargain play.
LeSEAN McCOY – RB – $8,400
The Raiders are slightly better at shutting down the run than they are the pass. They allow 116.9 yards on the ground, and on a good day, McCoy can get 116.9 yards in his sleep. Shady is the third-highest priced running back on this week’s slate, but he should be well worth the big FanDuel bucks.
