Tyler Boyd has a laughably low salary this week for an every-down player on arguably the most explosive passing offense on the slate. The Ravens defense is elite against the run and funnels opponents to throw the ball at a very high rate. Boyd is healthy and will be on the field often, benefitting from the high volume of passing and the attention Baltimore is sure to send toward Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase.
We have seen James Cook make some big plays and demonstrate his burst and ability at several points this season. This Sunday, the Bills are heavy favorites and Cook is in a position to show the world what he’s capable of. The Bills tend to lean more heavily on Cook in games they have bigger leads in, so his role should grow and the Bills could have a lot of scoring opportunities. The Bills have very realistic Super Bowl aspirations so they would seem less likely to put Josh Allen in harm’s way near the goal line. Cook could easily burst out of the shadows of his older brother, Dalvin, and the Bills “starter’ Devin Singletary.
