Week 17 Fantasy Football Stats Notebook: Can Bills get Stefon Diggs rolling and beat Bengals?
He leads the team in receiving over the last three weeks with 177 yards and has scored three times. But if the performance of the run game can be sticky, it would go a long way to helping this team out. My bet is the Bengals dedicate extra attention to Diggs and man up on the other Bills receivers, daring someone else to beat them. Think what you want about the Falcons offense — their run game concepts are awesome. You can tell who watches the games based on how they’ve reacted to the recent run of good play by Houston.wftv.com

Bills TE Knox honors late brother after signing 4-year deal
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — (AP) — The joy Dawson Knox experienced in signing a $53.6 million, four-year contract extension with the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday was undercut by the recent death of the tight end's younger brother. As a result, Knox couldn’t think of a better way to pay tribute to Luke Knox than by dedicating this season to him. The person said Knox is guaranteed $31 million, with the remainder made up in incentives and bonus money. Locking up Knox ensures the Bills offense will have a semblance of continuity beyond this season, with Allen and Diggs already signed to long-term deals. With Buffalo already limited by salary-cap constraints next year, Knox’s signing could make it difficult for the team to re-sign No.wftv.com
