Creating An Optimal Lineup For Week 5 Tuesday Night Football

  • Josh Allen is the top-rated player on daily fantasy football sites for Tuesday Night Football.
  • Jonnu Smith costs $10,500 on daily fantasy football sites.
  • Kalif Raymond is priced at just $8,000 on DFS sites.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On the rarest of occasions, the undefeated Buffalo Bills will take on the undefeated Tennessee Titans for a special edition of Tuesday Night Football.

With there being football on Tuesday night, this allows for daily fantasy football GM’s to take action by creating their single-game roster.

With this being a five-man roster, GM’s are able to choose one of the five players that they choose as their MVP. This means that this player will earn 1.5 times the points that the other players rostered would earn.

That being said, this is just a suggested lineup and should be changed around to the user's likings.

MVP – Jonnu Smith, TE, $10,500
FLEX – Josh Allen, QB, $16,000
FLEX – Stefon Diggs, WR, $13,500
FLEX – Devin Singletary, RB, $12,000
FLEX – Kalif Raymond, WR, $8,000

Staring with the MVP slot, Jonnu Smith would prove to be a great MVP candidate here. Smith is in the midst of a breakout season as he has proven to be one of the top options at tight end this season.

He acts as a security blanket for Ryan Tannehill and has been very beneficial to the success of this Titans offense. Smith has put up great numbers thus far as he went for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, 84 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2, and 61 yards in Week 3.

It also helps his value that he is going up against a Bills defense that is ranked 27 against opposing tight ends. Something else that adds value to Smith as the MVP is that it is likely that he won’t be selected at the position on other contestants’ rosters.

The first Flex slot here is filled out by Josh Allen. Allen is an obvious choice to be rostered as he is having himself an MVP-caliber season.

Just to give fantasy GM’s something to think about, Allen has thrown for over 280 yards and two or more touchdowns in every game this season and has scored north of 25 fantasy points in every game as well. He is the top-ranked player on online betting sites for a reason and he will surely continue his incredible season on Tuesday night against the Titans.

The second Flex position is filled out by Allen’s go-to guy, Stefon Diggs. Diggs is turning in a great first season with the Bills as he is clearly the WR1 on this team and is a crucial part as to why this is one of the most lethal offenses in the NFL.

He has pulled in over 115 yards on two separate occasions this season and has a nice matchup with the 22 ranked Tennessee Titans defense here on Tuesday night which could benefit him as well.

The third Flex spot is taken by Devin Singletary who is clearly the RB1 for this Bills team.

Before the seasons start, it was expected that Singletary was going to split carries with rookie Zach Moss but Moss has been dealing with an injury and is listed as questionable. Also, it might not seem like it with the incredible play from Josh Allen but, this is typically a run-first offense that the Bills use as Singletary is coming off of an 18-rush attempt game.

The Titans also rank towards the bottom when it comes to defending opposing running backs as they rank 24 in the league. They have allowed for 107 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, 102 yards and a touchdown in Week 2, and 181 yards and a touchdown in Week 3.

The final Flex position is Kalif Raymond who could be seen as a bit of a stretch, but he could get his opportunity to shine on Tuesday Night.

Raymond is coming off of his best game yet as he reeled in 118 yards on just three targets and receptions.

When the Titans are fully healthy, however, he is towards the bottom of the receiving depth chart. But, the Titans will be missing Corey Davis and Adam Humphries as they were placed on the COVID-19 list which leaves Raymond to be the WR2.

However, Raymond could potentially shift the WR1 spot as well, being that AJ Brown is also listed as questionable. This would serve Raymond justice as he would receive endless amounts of opportunity.
