    Emmanuel Sanders Sep 21 11:40pm ET

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has quickly built chemistry with his new quarterback Josh Allen. Through two games, Sanders has at least six targets in each of the contests. However, he was only able to haul in two receptions for 48 yards in Week 2. It's not likely going to get easier against the Washington Football Team. A defense that surrendered the second-lowest amount of touchdowns to receivers last season. Sanders should see his share of targets, but he'll be a low-end flex option in PPR formats for Week 3.

    Dawson Knox Sep 21 11:40pm ET

    Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has done his job when called upon this season. Through two games, Knox has six receptions on seven targets with one touchdown. Sadly, things aren't going to get easier for him against the Washington Football Team defense in Week 3. A defense that allowed the fourth-fewest amount of yards to tight ends last season. Knox could see a few targets in Week 3, but won't be anything more than a touchdown-dependent TE2.

    Cole Beasley Sep 21 11:30pm ET

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has proven himself to be a fairly reliable fantasy option in PPR formats over the last season or so. He was somewhat held in check last week with four receptions for 36 yards, but the Bills weren't forced to air it out in what was already a blowout victory. Beasley in is line for a bounce back performance, but Washington isn't normally an easy team to pass against on a weekly basis. Despite that, Beasley should get his share of targets, but will be a low-end WR3 in PPR formats.

    Zack Moss Sep 21 11:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills running back Zack Moss saw his first action of the season versus the Miami Dolphins in Week 2. He rushed eight times for 26 yards and scored two touchdowns. Let's be honest, Moss is mainly going to be the Bills red zone back. Otherwise, Devin Singletary is going to see the bulk of the work in the backfield. Moss will get a tough matchup against Washington who allowed the second-fewest amount of scores to running backs last season. Fantasy managers should consider Moss a touchdown-dependent option, but he should be on the bench in most leagues for Week 3.

    Stefon Diggs Sep 21 11:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs has posted two straight 60 or more yard performances to begin the season. He caught his first touchdown of the season last week. Diggs came into the season ready to play, but could have some issues against Washington in Week 3. A secondary that allowed the second-fewest amount of scores to receivers last season. However, Diggs doesn't need touchdowns in order to have success in fantasy formats. The fact Washington is above average defensively pushes Diggs into WR2 territory for Week 3.

    Josh Allen Sep 21 11:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has not been able to get into a groove to start the 2021 season. He has thrown three passing touchdowns against two tough defenses, but it won't get easier in Week 3. Allen will face off against the Washington Football Team defense that allowed the second-fewest passing touchdown scores in the league last season. Through two games, Allen has only completed 33.3 percent of his pass attempts. Fantasy managers might have to deal with another dud from Allen before he gets an easier matchup to begin October.

    Devin Singletary Sep 21 11:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary has surprised many with two straight 70-plus games on the ground. It has been a nice start to the season for Singletary, but it won't get easier in Week 3. He'll have to run against a Washington defense that allowed the second-fewest touchdowns to running backs last season. The good news is, Singletary appears to be in line for at least 10-plus carries per game. Sadly, fantasy managers won't be able to trust him more than a RB3 for this tough matchup.

    Austin Ekeler Sep 21 10:33pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, and the Chiefs have allowed the most rushing yards (404), the most rushing touchdowns (7) and the most yards per rush (6.0) of any team in the NFL.

    Fantasy Spin: Ekeler is already one of the steadiest producers at the running back spot thanks to his impact as a receiver, and he be headed for a big week against a struggling Kansas City defense.

    Quinton Dunbar Sep 21 8:50pm ET

    The Buffalo Bills worked out free-agent cornerback Quinton Dunbar and safety Damarious Randall on Tuesday. Dunbar signed with the Detroit Lions in the offseason, but he was released during training camp in mid-August. In five games for the Seattle Seahawks in 2020, Dunbar had five passes defensed and an interception in six games. Randall was released by the Seahawks at the beginning of December after he played mostly on special teams in 10 games with Seattle in 2020. The Bills defense pitched a shutout in the Week 2 lopsided victory over the Miami Dolphins, and they'll be a strong starting defensive unit in fantasy once again this weekend when they face the Washington Football Team at home.

    Freddie Swain Sep 21 8:40pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Freddie Swain leads the NFL through two weeks of play with an average of 7.5 yards of separation from defenders. With rookie Dee Eskridge missing Week 2 with a concussion, Swain stepped into the No. 3 role and has played 59.3 percent of the offensive snaps through two weeks behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. The 23-year-old caught all five of his targets in the overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans for 95 yards and a touchdown, including a wide-open 68-yard touchdown strike. Swain could end up securing the third receiver job in Seattle. It won't be a role that'll give him weekly fantasy value, but Seattle's offense is a friendly place for receivers that can make big plays down the field.

    Quez Watkins Sep 21 8:30pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles second-year wide receiver Quez Watkins was the fastest ball-carrier in Week 2 and through the first two weeks of the season when he reached 21.62 mph on his 91-yard reception in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. He finished the game with just two catches for 117 yards, but he's caught all five of his targets through two weeks for 140 yards for a league-high 28 yards per reception. Watkins' snap percentage (48.8) is behind that of both rookie DeVonta Smith and Jalen Reagor, but the sixth-rounder in 2020 has big-play ability because of his speed despite not making his NFL debut until Week 14 last year. He's one to watch in deeper leagues.
