Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Draft Rankings
Stefon Diggs Note

Now that Diggs is out of Minnesota, will he become the fantasy superstar that we thought he could be? He tallied just 94 targets last year, and that's despite Adam Thielen being hurt for half the season. Diggs has seen more than 112 targets just once in his career, a number that should be attainable in Buffalo, though John Brown and Cole Beasley both topped 100 targets last year. To think Diggs can be more than a WR2, they'd have to severely cut Brown's and Beasley's targets to get him there. With Josh Allen's inconsistency throwning the ball down the field, it'd be unwise to trust Diggs as anything more than a low-end WR2 in fantasy.

Devin Singletary Note

There were many celebrating the end of the Frank Gore era in Buffalo, but they went out and added one of my favorite backs in the draft, Zack Moss, to use in that Gore role. GM Brandon Beane said, "I think more of the goal line and things like that as we did with Frank last year, you'll see Zack do. I think Devin will do a similar role that he had." This is your reminder that Singletary had just two carries inside the five-yard-line all year, while Josh Allen had five, and Frank Gore had 11. That's a crushing blow to Singletary's value.

Josh Allen Note

I'm not questioning Allen's ability to finish as a top-eight quarterback (where he's being drafted), because he finished as the No. 6 quarterback last year. However, his rushing touchdowns will come back down to earth. He scored nine of them in 2019, while Lamar Jackson scored seven rushing for more than double Allen's yards. The addition of Stefon Diggs won't hurt Allen's passing totals, but it's on the ground where he makes most of his marks, and I'm expecting that to regress.

John Brown Note

Brown was the definition of consistency last year, finishing with at least 10.4 PPR points in 13-of-15 games. The issue was that he lacked upside, topping 20 PPR points just twice all year. Now adding Stefon Diggs to the offense, his target share is going to dip and make him much more inconsistent, as they're both perimeter players who'll compete for targets. After seeing 115 targets in 2019, it's possible that number dips into the 80-90 range in 2020. This receiving corps will be better for real life football in 2020, but fantasy-wise, there's likely to be a lot of bumpy roads.

Zack Moss Note

The Bills have already come forward and said that Moss will take over the role that Frank Gore played last year. Before injuries and age started to add up for Gore, he was getting a lot of work in the Bills offense. He averaged 12.5 carries per game through Week 12, which is a big enough role to be considered an RB4. Not just that, but Gore ranked 12th among running backs for carries inside the five-yard-line. Moss is going to crush Devin Singletary's upside, and if Singletary were to miss time, Moss would be a top-15 start every week.

Buffalo Bills Note

Cole Beasley Note

It's hard to say that Beasley shouldn't be considered higher in the rankings than he is. He did finish as the WR34 last year, ahead of Darius Slayton, Curtis Samuel, and others after all. The arrival of Stefon Diggs will surely affect John Brown more than Beasley considering the roles they play, but Beasley is still very unlikely to see the 104 targets he did last year. He's someone you snag during bye weeks to give you a 8-point floor in PPR formats.

Dawson Knox Note

Knox saw four-plus targets in eight games as a rookie, which isn't bad for someone you're looking at for a streaming performance, but the addition of Stefon Diggs will certainly cost him some targets in the Bills run-first offense. He's the fifth-best option in the passing game, so you can feel free to leave him undrafted.

Stephen Hauschka Note

Hauschka hasn't hit at least 80 percent of his field goal attempts since 2017, and has converted exactly 22 chances in each of the last two seasons. Although the Bills can move the ball up and down the field, the wind and cold in in Orchard Park can wreak havoc on any kicker. Hauschka falls outside the list of fantasy-relevant kickers unless you're in a 20-team league.
