Buffalo Bills Analysis
Josh Allen is a pretty good start against the Cowboys defense. Though the Cowboys defense ranks 6th in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks, but Allen has been extremely productive even when the Bills offense does not do well as a whole. Last week, the Bills offense only scored 20 points on offense, but Allen still managed to score 20 fantasy points. In week 10, the Bills scored 16 points on offense, but Allen scored 25.4 fantasy points. Since he is a threat to run the ball, Allen can still have great games against good defenses.
Devin Singletary is also a great fantasy option this week. The Cowboys rank 20th in fantasy points allowed to running backs and Singletary is coming off of a great game against the Broncos. He rushed for 106 yards on 21 carries in that game. He could easily see a similar workload against the Cowboys defense this week, and could even score a touchdown. Frank Gore should also see some touches, but he will not be very productive. While Singletary has been healthy, Gore has not eclipsed 10 fantasy points.
Lastly, the Bills receivers should not do too well. Though John Brown has been hot over the last few weeks, he may struggle against the Cowboys, who rank 7th in fantasy points allowed to receivers. The Cowboys did not allow a 100 yard receiver to the Patriots, but still allowed 8 receptions for 93 yards to Julian Edelman. Though Cole Beasley has a similar playing style to Edelman, he should not be that productive this week. Josh Allen does not have that type of chemistry with Cole Beasley to consistently beat the Cowboys secondary to throw to Beasley.

Dallas Cowboys Analysis
Amari Cooper struggled last game, as he scored 0 fantasy points. The week before, Cooper only had 6.8 PPR fantasy points in a 35-27 win over the Lions. Cooper has shown that he can have huge games, but he will have the occasional game where he is very unproductive. Against the Bills, Cooper will probably not have a great game. The Bills rank 3rd in passing yards allowed and 5th in fantasy points allowed to receivers. This defense should be able to contain Cooper and the whole Cowboys passing game. This means that Michael Gallup should not have a great game as well. Against the Patriots last week, Gallup had only 4 receptions for 55 yards. This Bills defense is as capable as shutting down the passing game as the Patriots defense, so the Cowboys should struggle passing the ball. This also means that Dak Prescott will probably not do well.
Ezekiel Elliott could actually have a decent game this week because the Bills rank 15th in rushing yards allowed and 19th in fantasy points allowed to running backs. Against the Patriots last week, Elliott had 86 rushing yards and 40 receiving yards. He could easily put up a similar statline against a Bills defense that has not been outstanding against the run.

Daily Fantasy: A Low Scoring Game
Ezekiel Elliott (DK: $7,400, FD: $8,400) is the best player for this game. He could easily have an 80+ yard game and a touchdown. This Bills pass defense is so good that the Cowboys will have to use Elliott to beat the Bills on the ground. Also, Josh Allen (DK: $6,200, FD: $7,800) should have a pretty good game as well. Though the Cowboys pass defense is good, Allen will still have a productive performance because of his presence in the run game. Devin Singletary (DK: $5,800, FD: $6,600) could also have a decent game as well, but he may not be as productive as Elliott. He should get a high volume of carries, and could do well against this mid-tier run defense.
