  • Over that span, when the Bills do not turn the ball over on a drive, they are third in the NFL in scoring rate per drive (43.2%).
  • The Raiders allowed a league-high 51.2 yards per drive after allowing 34.6 yards per drive in 2022 (29th).
  • The Raiders were the only team in the league to gain a first down on every offensive possession (that did not end in kneel downs) in Week 1.
  • 87% of the Raider set of downs resulted in another first down or TD, the highest rate for any team in Week 1.

Josh Allen (TRUST): Allen ran into another tough game against the Jets on Monday, putting a bow on the opening week performances from early-round quarterbacks.

Allen closed as QB23 (9.0 points), turning the ball over four times.

Since the start of last season, Allen has now thrown for 5.8 Y/A against the Jets and has thrown for 7.7 Y/A against everyone else.

This is as good of a bounce-back spot as you could look for. Allen is at home and a massive home favorite. The Bills have the highest team total of the weekend.

Since his rookie season, Allen has averaged 23.8 fantasy points per game as a home favorite of a touchdown or more.

The matchup is also good.

After allowing 0.450 passing points per attempt in 2022 (28th), the Raiders allowed 0.444 passing points per attempt in Week 1 (25th).
