The Buffalo Bills are set to host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, with a 1:00 p.m. EST kickoff in Orchard Park. With the over/under currently set at 55, the expectations are high that this could be a high-scoring affair.

When it comes to Josh Allen and fantasy football, this could be one of the more enticing matchups on the 2020 schedule. The Seahawks currently give up 358 passing yards per game, which is the worst in the NFL. To provide some context, the Atlanta Falcons pass defense is the second-worst, giving up an average of 311 yards per game. Fans have been looking for a “get right” game for the Bills’ passing attack, and the Seahawks’ defense could be the perfect fit.

Stefon Diggs remains a no-brainer start for owners, as he is currently second in the NFL in receiving yards (695) and third in receptions (54). Cole Beasley remains a FLEX option, and I am keeping John Brown on the bench for the time being. Brown is likely only on rosters in really deep leagues, and should be a drop candidate for the time being.

Things are not as clear with Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, as the Seahawks only give up 102 rushing yards per game. This is likely a result of Seattle’s struggling pass defense, and the game script may force the Bills to pass often on Sunday. Both can be considered a FLEX matchup on Sunday, or an RB2 if your starter is on bye.

Best of luck with your matchups this weekend and go Bills!
