Choices against Draft Kings: Bills vs. Titans
With a budget of $50,000, you need at least one player from each team.
Captain (1.5x value, 1.5x points): Bills D/ST ($7,200)
Applying the captain’s mark to a Buffalo defense isn’t exciting, but consider the factors. First, salary savings allow for some significant inclusions in tickets elsewhere. Second, the Bills were the best defense in the league by a number of measures. They lead the league in DVOA, fast food, and points allowed; They are v in bags and pressure rate. They have exceeded 20 DraftKings points on two occasions. It wouldn’t be surprising to see them post another big number against the Attack of the Titans who struggled with protection (20 sacks allowed) and ball security (seven gifts).
Flex: QB Josh Allen, Bills ($12,800)
Allen just missed his second 40-point revolution last week, settling on a Dane 39.5 points against the Chiefs. He’ll have another chance to flirt with that lofty plateau against the Titans, who have fallen victim in the air this season.

Flex: RB Derek Henry, Titans ($11,400)
If there is a class of players that we can consider “proof of conformity,” Henry is directly entrenched among that class of elite. In addition to playing the Bills defense so far, they’ve never faced someone like Henry, who accounts for 55.1 percent of Titans touchdowns. Bills Henry held on to the 63-yard aggregate in last season’s meeting, but King still scored a touchdown pair.
Flex: WR Emmanuel Sanders, bills ($8,600)
Sanders will start sharing his touchdown with Stefon Diggs sooner rather than later, but we’ll be riding the hot hand again this week. Sanders has had four touchdowns in his past three games and has had success playing the role of “Robin” for “Batman” Diggs. Sanders continues to operate at a high level of efficiency, reeling in 61.3 percent of his goals with an average of 16.9 yards per reception.
Flex: RB Zack Moss, Bells ($7,000)
Moss held out the first week but has handled double-digit touches in the four games since then. He’s hit four touchdown points over this distance and appears to have passed Devin Singletary as a higher-billing option from behind. Moss would never fault Austin Eckler, but he performed well in the passing game when he had the opportunity. He collected 55 yards last week and slipped into the touchdown in week three.
Flex: RB Jeremy McNichols, Titans ($3,000)
While McNichols’ price tag is attractive, it’s not just a quick pick. The McNichols are second to the Titans behind Henry in touches and second behind AJ Brown (illness) in goals. The return of Brown and Julio Jones could eat up his target share, but the Titans are likely to play from behind, which should give McNichols another decent chance. One note on the McNichols: The second year back Darrynton Evans (knee) is approaching a comeback that will eventually sideline the McNichols. McNichols did well enough to keep Evans at arm’s length in the short term, but it’s worth checking the latest injury reports before kickoff.
