Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen did everything he could versus the Tennessee Titans in Week 6. He completed 35-of-47 passing attempts for 353 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Allen also added a team-high nine carries for 26 yards on the ground in the loss. Sadly, he came up one yard short and on the keeper late in the fourth quarter. It's a tough loss for the Bills, but Allen did his job and gave an epic performance. He'll head into a bye week now, but has put himself in the MVP conversation with his performance this season.
The Denver Broncos defense isn't finding things as easy as they did in the first three weeks against weaker competition. Falling to 3-3 on the year, they allowed 34 points in the Week 6 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders at home. Denver's D wasn't able to take advantage of a shaky and beat up offensive line and continued to get burnt deep in the secondary. On top of all of that, they generated only two sacks on quarterback Derek Carr and failed to force a single turnover. It's become apparent that the Broncos defense isn't an elite unit against solid competition, but they'll have streaming appeal on Thursday night against a Cleveland Browns team that could be without both of their starting running backs. For the Broncos D to return to fantasy relevance, they need to start generating more turnovers.
Washington Football Team quarterback Taylor Heinicke was fairly mediocre in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, as he completed 24-of-39 passes for just 182 yards and one touchdown. The dual-threat didn't rely on his scrambling ability at all in this game, as he didn't record a single rushing attempt. He was set up for a great matchup against a weak Kansas City defense but simply couldn't deliver for fantasy managers. Moving forward, it would likely be best to look elsewhere for streaming options in one-QB leagues, but the 28-year-old still has QB2 appeal in two-QB or super-flex formats. In Week 7 he faces the Green Bay Packers who are not a particularly strong defensive unit, so he can be valued as a QB2 once again.
