The Buffalo Bills passing attack has been the fantasy football players’ best friend all season. There’s no small chance that if you had quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs in your lineup, you rode them all the way to a championship. Now, both Diggs and Cole Beasley have the chance to roll up big points again this week against the Ravens in a Divisional round showdown.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bills WRs Stefon Diggs ($7,300), Cole Beasley ($4,900)

Diggs led the team with 128 receiving yards last week. He had six catches on nine targets, and he also scored a touchdown on a big time 36-yard play in the second half. There was some question whether or not Beasley would play last week, but he caught all seven passes thrown to him for 57 yards.

Only four teams were better than the Ravens at limiting opposing wide receivers’ fantasy points this season. However, Baltimore tends to play a lot of man coverage, which the Bills have been aces against this season. Better still is that this should be something like a shootout, with lots of fantasy points to go around.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Only two receivers cost more than Diggs this week, but he’s worth the cost, and not a bad stack with quarterback Josh Allen. Beasley tends to do his best work against lesser teams, but as much as the Bills throw the ball, he’s not a bad fit as a WR3.
