2021 Fantasy Football Buffalo Bills Preview

on

Welcome to the 2021 Fantasy Football Team Previews presented to you by the Fantasy Six Pack team. Today I am presenting the 2021 Fantasy Football Buffalo Bills Preview, a team that should be one of the top teams again in the AFC with a high-powered, high-scoring offense.

2020 was kind to the Bills. They finished 13-3, won the AFC East title for the first time in forever and made it to the AFC Championship game. They feature one of the most best offenses in football and return almost all of the key players from it.

Quarterbacks

Let’s start with the obvious here. Josh Allen is by far the Bills best dynasty fantasy football asset at one of the most important positions in football.

There is no doubt that after last year’s performance (5,175 total yards, 45 total TDs) Josh Allen belongs in the conversation as one of the top dynasty quarterbacks. The Bills built the offense around him, to suit his strengths and he is still at the ripe age of 24, the sky is the limit for Allen. He also posses dual-threat ability (631 yards with eight TDs).

The key to Allen’s game is also the fact that he has decreased his turnover rates. Combine that with his ability to throw it a mile, and run for a score, Allen is 1B to Mahomes when it comes to drafting a quarterback.

After Allen, Trubisky would be the plug-in if Allen went down. The numbers across the board would take a hit, but you can still use Mitch as a plug-and-play, match-up-based guy if it came to it. Let’s just hope for Buffalo’s sake that Allen remains healthy all year.

Running Backs

The running back situation in Buffalo is one that owners may want to avoid. It is a bit of a committee/hot hand backfield with neither really immerging as the lead back right now. They are a pass-heavy team that does not run the ball a lot overall. One thing I will say is that the Bills front office has confidence in their backfield after not addressing it at the draft.

From a dynasty standpoint, Moss is the preferable back-to-own. He has more characteristics of an every-down back, and we have not seen his potential yet. Last season he did miss three regular-season games with injuries, and during that time, Singletary did not do much to separate himself as the lead back.

Singletary has had a good offseason and it seems like he has bulked up. He is the more explosive of the two backs and a better pass catcher. Singletary is still worth rostering, I would just temper the expectations right now.

There is no guarantee that Matt Brieda makes the roster after camp. If he does, I would think he would eat into Singletarys touches.

Wide Receivers

This is where the Bills are the deepest. There is no shortage of talent here for Josh Allen to throw the ball to. It is led by one of the top wide reviewers in the game, Stefon Diggs.

Diggs exploded onto the scene in Buffalo setting single-season records for the Bills on his way to 127 receptions, 1,535 yards, and eight touchdowns. Now, that is a really high bar to set for the seasons to come, but with Allen slinging him the ball, there should not be a ton of regression. Drafting Diggs with confidence as your WR1 is still a smart thing to do.

After Diggs, Beasley and Gabriel Davis are the two top wide receivers from a fantasy perspective. Beasley is the slot guy for the Bills and a bit of a security blanket of sorts for Allen. He can rack up the points in a PPR league for owners. However, he did only find the end zone four times last year.

Davis, outside of Diggs has the most upside in the receiver room. He showed flashes of it last season when he led all rookies with five touchdowns of 20+ yards. Emmanuel Sanders will eat into that a bit, but Davis is still a guy to target in dynasty leagues.

Keep an eye on Isaiah Hodgins. He is a dynasty stash for me. He was a very good college receiver that was hampered with injuries but he seems to be fully healthy right now. He has a big frame (6’4, 210) and is a physical receiver who runs routes well.

Tight Ends

From the deepest position on the team to the shallowest. The TE room for the Bills is one that lacks really any fantasy intrigue. Knox, Hollister and Sweeney just do not scream draft me. Now all that could change if the Bills trade for Zach Ertz but only time will tell there.

Knox was made it known that he has spent most of the offseason working with a “vision specialist” to help with his eye hand coordination. If that leads to less drops, Knox may be a viable option after all. There is no doubt that talent is there, he just has to hold onto to the ball.

Final Verdict

Just like last season, the Bills should be a dynamic offense that puts up a ton of points. Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs are no brainers to own and rank towards the top of their respective positions. Beasley makes a fine plug and play during bye weeks and Gabe Davis makes a fine dynasty roster hold. Similar to the Chiefs, you cannot go wrong owning the skill players from this high firing offense.
