Week 3: at Minnesota Vikings

All TE vs MIN

FBG says: Bad matchup. Josh Allen was as advertised in his first NFL start: raw and volatile, but oozing with arm talent and downfield dynamism. His long completion to Zay Jones last Sunday was a deep-ball rainbow that few NFL passers could throw with such ease. Allen needs work on his decision-making, as he's prone to firing balls into coverage, or to a suboptimal choice in general. But his mechanics are underrated, and they complement his arm quite well. He shows good footwork and timing on his throws, and there's tons of promise for a Matthew Stafford type willing to win or lose games downfield. Of course, he'll need some degree of weaponry to do it, and this crew is arguably the league's worst. Jones and Kelvin Benjamin lead the way, both wildly inefficient targets, while Charles Clay looks slowed by a full career's worth of nagging injuries. And there's no depth to speak of, with just Andre Holmes, Robert Foster, and Ray-Ray McCloud behind the wideouts. Allen is capable of spinning gold on tough throws, but it's silly to trust this group to create anything even close to consistent. Buoyed by a dynamite pass rush, the Vikings pass defense remains elite. Everson Griffen, Danielle Hunter, and Sheldon Richardson routinely swarm pockets and make life difficult for quarterbacks - even great ones. Last week, future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers completed a handful of impact throws, but cornerbacks Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes were generally solid. Outside receivers Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison averaged just 9.1 yards per catch. That's a pattern with this defense: passing games tend to get funneled inside into traffic, where per-catch averages slip and takeaways become a real issue. Harrison Smith remains lethal in centerfield coverage and a fierce enforcer over the middle, further making this a near-shutdown unit. Dating back to the start of last season, no defense has allowed fewer touchdowns, and only Jacksonville more net yards per attempt.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs LAC (3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)

Charles Clay had a better day against the Chargers, but still lacks for volume. Clay had a 21 yard catch and had a deep target on a play action pass, but the Buffalo offense is too inconsistent while attempting to get Logan Thomas and Jason Croom involved for Clay to see consistent enough usage for fantasy production at this point in Josh Allen's career.

2018 Week 1 vs BAL (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Charles Clay was held without a catch on two targets. The offense was a putrid display and Clay was no different.
