Here we go with the Single Game NFL DFS slate for Monday Night Football of Week 6. Today’s matchup is between the Bills and Titans with Buffalo checking in as a 5.5 point road favorite. The over/under currently rests at 54.5 total points. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 ET.
We’ll highlight the top picks and best bargains to assemble a cash-inducing lineup. On top of that, the “additional notes” section will feature several tournament selections while adding context to the rest of this slate.
We will be producing these articles for Thursday, Sunday, and Monday Night Football matchups, so be sure to bookmark the NBC Sports EDGE DFS Page for those occasions - not to mention all the other fantastic daily fantasy content.
Josh Allen - QB - Buffalo (DK: $12,800 / FD: $17,000 / Yahoo: $37)
You probably didn’t have to open up this article to realize that Josh Allen is the top play of the night. He’s one of the best QBs in the NFL for fantasy and real-life purposes. The MVP frontrunner is on a tear with 37, 21, and 37 fantasy points respectively over his last three games. The Buffalo offense is concentrated through him, and he has a great matchup against Tennessee - who has allowed the 10th most fantasy points to QBs this season.
Stefon Diggs - WR - Buffalo (DK: $9,600 / FD: $12,500 / Yahoo: $34)
Diggs has been somewhat mediocre this season. Of course, that’s compared to his lofty standards. The Bills have been so dominant that they haven’t needed to lean on their star receiver. There’s a chance Buffalo runs away with this game tonight, but at least the matchup looks fantastic. The Titans have had problems in the secondary while allowing the most fantasy points to opposing receivers. That creates a beautiful draw for Diggs to have a breakout game.

Tyler Bass - K - Buffalo (DK: $3,400 / FD: $9,000 / Yahoo: N/A)
I’ll be looking towards both kickers tonight, especially on DraftKings where there aren’t many inspiring options for a similar price. Bass has been steady this season while averaging nearly 11 fantasy points per game. Randy Bullock (K - TEN) should find numerous opportunities as well. Buffalo has one of the best red-zone defenses in the league, so there’s a good chance the Titans will be settling for field goals.
Zack Moss - RB - Buffalo (DK: $7,000 / FD: $9,500 / Yahoo: $18)
Moss isn’t a classic bargain play, as his salary is marked-up on DraftKings with a mid-range price tag on FanDuel. However, I believe he’s worth keeping on your shortlist tonight. The Bills should control this game, which will have them running the ball in the second half. That’s where Moss comes in with a cool 13.4 FPPG average on the season.
Gabriel Davis - WR - Buffalo (DK: $2,000 / FD: $6,000 / Yahoo: $13)
As mentioned earlier, the Titans have allowed the most fantasy points to receivers this season. Is this finally where Gabriel Davis breaks out? Davis entered the season as a sleeper candidate, but he hasn’t given truthers much to latch onto. Having said that, he’s dirt-cheap now with some red-zone potential.
Ryan Tannehill (QB - TEN) is on the board despite a tough matchup against Buffalo. Rolling with Allen/Tannehill/Diggs is entirely possible through all formats … Julio Jones (WR - TEN) makes for an interesting stacking extension of Tannehill. AJ Brown is questionable with an illness, and the Titans will need to throw the ball to keep pace with the Bills. Jones could be the beneficiary of those situations.
Derrick Henry (RB - TEN) is in a weird spot. He’s a great player with extreme DFS upside. However, the salary is through the roof, and this matchup is brutal. For better or worse, I’ll be assembling my cash games without Henry.
AJ Brown (WR - TEN) is questionable with an illness. This makes him an interesting tournament pick who could have less support than usual due to the injury designation (assuming he plays). If Brown is out, then perhaps Marcus Johnson (WR - TEN) will see more targets as a fine dirt-cheap filler.
Cole Beasley (WR - BUF) and Emmanuel Sanders (WR - BUF) are on the tournament list with borderline cash playability. Go ahead and throw Dawson Knox (TE - BUF) in that category too. The Bills love to spread the ball around (outside of Diggs), so it’s anyone’s guess who will emerge as the winner of this group.
