For anyone playing fantasy football, the Thursday night game between the Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams is one that they will be watching closely. Both teams have a number of players that were likely top draft picks and the people who drafted those players will be hoping for them to get off to a fast start and help them secure a win to start their fantasy football season.
This is how I believe the players on the Buffalo Bills offense will finish Week 1 and whether or not to start them or not.
Week 1 fantasy football projections for the Buffalo Bills
Josh Allen has finished as the top-scoring player in fantasy football in each of the past two years, according to FantasyPros. He is considered one of the top quarterbacks again this year and has an excellent chance to claim that top spot in 2022.
The rushing ability of Josh Allen gives him a great floor and that is one of the reasons that he has been one of the top scoring players in fantasy football. However, anyone who drafted him didn’t draft him for his floor but rather those huge games that he is capable of.
While Josh Allen does play well in primetime, this is going to be a tough matchup with players like Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, and Bobby Wagner on the other side. There are probably not going to be any games where Josh Allen should be benched this year but it also wouldn’t be surprising if this game was his lowest-scoring game of the season.
