Everyone knows that the Buffalo Bills schedule as a whole will be much tougher than the previous season. However, for the Bills’ wide receivers, specifically Stefon Diggs and John Brown, they are going to face an uphill battle in 2020.
Both wide receivers last year were in the WR2 range, and according to NFL.com, Brown finished 19th overall among wide receivers in total points and Diggs was not far behind at 23rd.
According to Pro Football Focus, the Buffalo Bills wide receivers have the toughest strength of schedules when it comes to fantasy football. During Weeks 14-16, which are typically playoff weeks in fantasy football, the Bills rank 28th.

"STEFON DIGGS AND JOHN BROWN, BUFFALO BILLSThere’s no way around it: The Bills schedule isn’t good. Having to face the Patriots twice is obviously rough, but that’s only the beginning for Diggs and Brown. They will also see tough coverage from the Chargers, 49ers and Steelers. Those matchups come down the stretch in Weeks 12-14. While this schedule isn’t enough to drastically move either of these two players down your board, I wouldn’t recommend overvaluing either of them. And, no, Bills fans, that’s not a shot at your team."
As they note, the Bills wide receivers are going to face Stephon Gilmore and the Patriots twice, Chargers, 49ers and Steelers all once. These are all going to be challenges but it was interesting that they also didn’t include the Miami Dolphins.
The trouble for any Buffalo Bills fans that are hoping to add their favorite team’s wide receivers is during those crucial playoff weeks, the Buffalo Bills face the Steelers, Broncos and Patriots.
The Buffalo Bills appear to have a vastly improved offense and one that has a lot of weapons that could have fantasy relevance this year. While most of their value will hinge on the performance of Josh Allen, when preparing for fantasy drafts fans are going to have to take into account the challenging schedule these players are going to face.
