Russell Wilson Looking For Back-To-Back Strong Games

Thursday, September 21, 11:13 PM

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson had just 17 fantasy points in the season-opening loss but had his best statistical game with the Broncos in last week's 35-33 loss to the Washington Commanders, putting up 33 fantasy points. After two games, he's averaged 25 fantasy points, which ranks fourth in the NFL at his position. It's a small sample size, though, and fantasy managers should want to see more from him before using him in starting lineups as a QB1. It was encouraging to see the 34-year-old get the deep passing game going in his 308-yard, two-touchdown performance in Week 2, and he now has five TD passes and only one pick through two games. Wilson heads to Miami in Week 3 to face a Dolphins defense that has been middle of the pack in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing QBs through two weeks. He's a midrange QB2 for fantasy lineups.

Josh Allen Remains Prime QB1 Despite Facing Tough Defense

Friday, September 22, 1:17 PM

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen returned to form with a three-touchdown effort in Week 2's beatdown of the Las Vegas Raiders. The 27-year-old next takes on the Washington Commanders, who just allowed fantasy's overall QB3 finish out of Russell Wilson last Sunday after teeing off on journeyman backup Joshua Doubs in the season opener for Week 1's lowest score among starting QBs. Washington's fierce defensive line has already turned in 10 sacks, which is tied only with the Dallas Cowboys. The Commanders lost Wilson for 56 rushing yards in Week 2, so expect Allen to use his legs more than he had to a week ago after logging just seven rush yards in that one. With an NFL-high 10 red-zone completions, the two-time Pro Bowler ranks as a top-tier QB1 in Week 3. Allen's DFS rostership could offer leverage while in arguably the most imposing matchup of his elite QB1 peers.
