Pat Fitzmaurice

 Mahomes is coming off one of the worst games of his career - a 27-3 loss to the Titans in which he completed 20 of 35 passes for 206 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. Mahomes also appeared woozy after taking a big hit late in the game. The Chiefs ran only 17 plays in the first half of the loss to Tennessee, which was one of their problems. But it also seems as if Mahomes is trying to do too much because the ragged Kansas City defense keeps giving up points and forcing the Chiefs' offense to keep pace. Mahomes faces a statistically average Giants defense this week, but one reason to get excited about the matchup if you're a Mahomes investor is that the Giants and Chiefs have two of the five fastest-paced offenses in the league. Mahomes ranks QB3 this week.
Kyle Yates

Allen has been everything fantasy managers were hoping for - and more - when they selected him in their drafts this off-season. Allen now leads all QBs with 26.55 fantasy points per game and this is even with a bit of a slow start to the season. The Bills are coming off of their bye week and they should be rested and ready to roll against a divisional opponent that is struggling to slow down anyone in Miami. The Dolphins are allowing an absurd 311.6 passing yards per game to opposing QBs this season and they're allowing the 5th-most fantasy points to the position. Fire up Allen as the QB1 this week. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Dolphins allow the 5th most points to fantasy quarterbacks and Josh Allen has owned the Dolphins in his young career. Allen should be an elite QB1 this week.The Giants are just 19th against fantasy quarterbacks this year. Even with the excessive turnovers, Mahomes II is still an elite fantasy QB1 at home.
