Shark Bites

Bills QB Josh Allen has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Jets. The team announced that Matt Barkley will start in his place. Barkley gets the nod over Nate Peterman, who’s tossed 7 picks — vs. 1 TD — on just 49 attempts. Barkley was signed on October 31st and doesn’t project as much of an upgrade. The Jets D/ST remains an elite option.

The Bills signed QB Josh Allen to a 6-year extension through the 2027 season, per ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. The deal carries a total value of $258 million and gives Allen more guaranteed cash ($150 million) than Patrick Mahomes ($141 million). It’s only striking because Allen has just 1 season of high-end production to his name. Of course, Buffalo’s all-in on the 25-year-old — and fantasy drafters are, too. He’s coming off the board 2nd among QBs in all FFPC formats.

The forecast for today's Patriots-Bills game calls for a chance of rain and 20 mph sustained winds with gusts over 30. That certainly puts a damper on the passing games. New England figured to go run-heavy anyway, so the bigger impact is on Josh Allen and Co. We'd also avoid both kickers in this game.

As of 12:30 pm ET on Sunday, the Bills-Titans game remains on for Tuesday night. There's still plenty of time for that to change, so you'll need to decide for yourself whether you want to risk leaving Bills and Titans players in your lineups. It'd be nice to at least have backup options available from Monday night's Chargers-Saints game. We've left our full projections in place for Bills and Titans players in the Week 5 Rankings.

This week's Bills-Titans game has been moved to Tuesday at 6 pm ET, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That's only if Tennessee has no more positive COVID tests, though. It's unclear what will happen to this game if the Titans have more positives, but we know that it won't be part of Week 5. The good news is that it sounds like we'll know for sure whether we'll have Bills and Titans players available for fantasy lineups this week within the next 24 hours.

Here's what Bills HC Sean McDermott said Tuesday about how he'll handle his team's meaningless Sunday finale against the Jets, according to SNY.tv: "We're going to play a majority of the guys. To go into detail will take some time, but the majority of guys will play, not all of them. Josh (Allen) will play. They're not all going to play the same amount in the game. We're going to be smart with that, but it's important that we get work in fundamentally and in terms of execution and we stay as sharp as can be." Translation: Expect most starters to play. Don't expect any key guys to make it past halftime. We'd plan on not using QB Josh Allen, RB Devin Singletary or the WRs, if you can help it.
