Sit: Mike White, QB, NY Jets
Mike White is back as the starting quarterback. We all still have the great game against the Bengals and the good first drive against the Colts in our minds. But against the Bills, it will be much harder for Mike White to shine.
That's because the Bills' defense has allowed just five passing touchdowns and only 1,513 passing yards this season — more than any other team in the league.
Additionally, the Bills have already recorded 11 interceptions — only the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams are better. The Bills also lead the league with just 12.5 fantasy points allowed per game to quarterbacks
Mike White is in for a very tough game. That's why he's a must-sit.
Sit: Ty Johnson, RB, NY Jets
As indicated, the Bills' run defense is one of the best in the league. Only three rushing touchdowns allowed so far this season and only 518 rushing yards allowed make for a top-three ranking.
Add to that just 26 receptions allowed to running backs — fewer than any other team in the league. With the Bills defense allowing just 15.6 fantasy points per game to running backs, I'd rather have Ty Johnson sit on the bench this week.
Sit: Elijah Moore, WR, NY Jets
I've already mentioned the strengths of the Bills' passing defense. The matchup is far from ideal for the Jets' rookie receiver.
He will have to contend with cornerback Tre'Davious White. Shadow coverage from White could be threatening. That's why I'd rather leave Elijah Moore on the bench this week.
Sit: Stefon Diggs, WR, Buffalo Bills
Stefon Diggs doesn't like playing against the Jets that much. In his last three games against them, Diggs has never had more than eight receptions and has not scored a touchdown. As a result, it's never been enough for Diggs to score more than 16.6 fantasy points.
On the other side of the ball is a Jets defense that has allowed 32.1 fantasy points to wide receivers so far this season, ranking seventh in the league. With only six touchdowns allowed to wide receivers, the Jets also find themselves in the top third of the league.
There are certainly better matchups for Diggs than against the Jets. That's why I'm passing on starting him this week.
