Buffalo Bills Analysis
The Buffalo Bills are 4-1 thus far in the season and are leading the AFC East. However, with the Patriots getting Cam Newton back and the Dolphins starting to roll the ball, they will try to hold off their rivals next week to stay in first. Their offense has been carrying their team with around 28 points per game off of the second-most yards per game with 400 and near four touchdowns per game. Josh Allen has been putting on a show by leading their offense and will be key for the next week against the Chiefs’ defense.
Josh Allen has been putting on a clinic at quarterback this season standing second in yards amongst quarterbacks with 1,589 yards and second in touchdowns with 14 on the season. His QBR of 113 is certainly something to awe at for the third-year quarterback. He has certainly received a lot of help from his best skill player and newly added weapon, Stefon Diggs. Diggs is second in the league in yards with 509 and fourth in receptions with 36. He has certainly been a huge help on their offense and will need to step up to beat the Chiefs’ solid defense next week.
Devin Singletary has been leading the Bills’ rushing game while rookie Zack Moss has been nursing an injury for some weeks. Singletary has only produced a low number of yards with 238 on the season and only one touchdown. The Bills hardly run the ball for a two-back committee around 37% per game. For next week, they should utilize the run game against a defense that allows over 150 rushing yards per game to their opponents.
The defense for the Bills has been their weakest component outside of their run game, but still allows 28.4 points per game. The Bills have allowed up to 263.2 passing yards per game plus two passing touchdowns. Both of these statistics rank the Bills below-average in the NFL. They will need to make use of safety Jordan Poyer and hopefully a healthy Tre’Davious White to contain the Chiefs’ outstanding pass game.
Overall, the Bills showed their true colors last week after getting dominated by the Tennessee Titans, who made it to the AFC championship last year. Josh Allen will need to spread the ball to his other receivers like John Brown and Cole Beasley, while Stefon Diggs will see attention from the Chiefs’ secondary. If they can maintain the Chiefs’ scoring on defense and hold the ball on offense, they could have a chance to win this game.

Kansas City Chiefs Analysis
The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off of a disappointing loss to division rivals Las Vegas Raiders last week. They allowed the Raiders to put up 40 points against them in their eight-point loss in week five. Mahomes and the Andy Reid offense are looking to regain momentum next week against the Raiders and continue their first-place standing in the AFC West. This week the Chiefs also signed on free agent Le’Veon Bell to their squad to help out rookie Clyde-Edwards Helaire in the backfield.
Patrick Mahomes has been quite excellent in his year post-Super Bowl win. Mahomes has put up 1,474 yards, 13 touchdowns, and a single interception this season that all rank in the top five of quarterbacks this season. Certainly, the cast of Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce has helped him greatly thus far in the season. Travis Kelce is arguably the best tight end in football and has 405 receiving yards and three touchdowns. With that, Tyreek Hill has 364 yards and four touchdowns to add to this commanding offense.
Rookie Clyde-Edwards Helaire has certainly lived up to his expectations this season with 344 yards and one rushing touchdown on the season. This rushing offense averages nearly 120 rushing yards per game which is near the top ten of teams in the NFL. Very impressive for a team that you would think inclines to pass way more than they run. Furthermore, their offensive efficiency has been phenomenal this season, ranking third in giveaways with only 0.6 per game. If they can stay efficient and use all of their weapons against the Bills, they should take in their fifth win of the season.
This week the Chiefs also decided to sign on veteran Leveon Bell to their squad after the New York Jets released him from their team. Leveon Bell only has 74 yards this season, after being out of three weeks this season due to injury. He has been adamant about the fact that he has wanted to leave the Jets and go somewhere where he can win a ring. He nailed his free agency on the head with a signing to the Kansas City Chiefs and could see some goal-line attempts in the future as a power back.
The Chiefs have shown weaknesses this season after almost losing to the Los Angeles Chargers and then losing to the Las Vegas Raiders. However, they will be looking for a win as the Chiefs are seeking to have the only bye week in the playoffs for the AFC’s best record. The Bills showed their vulnerability to good teams last week and if the Chiefs can focus on passing against the weak secondary of the Bills, while also containing the Bills’ passing game with Josh Allen, then the Chiefs should add another win to their season.

This game will be an interesting one for week six, as there is no clear lock to win this game. The Chiefs have stepped up big time in important games, like their impressive win over the Baltimore Ravens. But, they looked lackluster against the Chargers and the Raiders. I think the Chiefs will pull off the win on Monday night, but the Bills have a better shot at covering the spread and keeping it close.
For this game, we have two of the best offenses in the NFL facing each other, but the Chiefs are 5-0 for the under on the road this season. For how well these defenses play, I can see this going with the under especially for how high the line is.

Love/Hate Fantasy Picks
John Brown has been quiet ever since his first two weeks where he averaged 19 points per game. He did not play last week against the Titans due to an injury but is looking good to come back Sunday. Look for Brown to have a bounce-back week after being in a slump, especially while Stefon Diggs sees the most coverage from the Chiefs’ defense. He is a solid WR3 with WR2 potential for week six.
Devin Singletary has been quite inconsistent in fantasy this year but has still managed to average around 12 points per game in the backfield. He is averaging 12 carries per game, even while sharing with Zack Moss in the backfield. The Chiefs have allowed the tenth-most fantasy points to running backs this season, and Singletary should capitalize on that after only 4.3 points last week against the Raiders.
Le’Veon Bell has just joined the Chiefs this week as most likely their backup to Edwards-Helaire. But, like most newly added running backs, Bell will need to learn the offense and most likely will not see a ton of touches on Monday night. That being said, the Bills defense also allows the eighth least amount of fantasy points to running backs this season.
