2.) Latavius Murray

For the first time this season, Murray saw double digit carries (12) for 45 yards but was not able to get in the endzone. Murray could be utilized in the offense more with Damien Harris being out due to a neck sprain he suffered against the Giants. The theme for Murray this season has been being the main guy inside the redzone and bull rush his way across the goaline. 

In 3 out of the 6 games this season, New England’s defense has given up over 100 rushing yards (145, 124, and 136), and on average are giving up over 100 yards on the ground each game. The duo of Murray and James Cook will be x-factors in helping set up the pass against a weak Patriots’ secondary for Josh Allen. Murray will be relied on once again inside the 20 yard line and avoid any situational mistakes that the Patriots can cause.

1.) Dawson Knox

The $13 million per year tight end in Dawson Knox has been arguably the least productive weapon for Allen this season. He has yet to pass 3 catches a game and his season high in receiving yards in a game this season is 25 yards. He has been targeted no more than 6 times in a game this season. 

The Bills have used a double tight end set all season long but it has been rookie Dalton Kincaid getting a majority of the targets as compared to Knox. This Sunday against New England, Knox will have to become a reliable weapon for Allen and not drop any passes to help get the passing game going, something that the offense has struggled with the last two weeks outside of Stefon Diggs.
