Could fantasy football championship week also be headlined by a preview of the AFC Championship game? Depends of course on who you're rooting for or who you have your chips on but, regardless of that, I think we can all agree Josh Allen vs. Joe Burrow should bring some serious fireworks in Week 17.
The Bills and Bengals will square off in Cincinnati on Monday Night Football, and when you consider the number of stars in this game, it becomes clear: Many fantasy championships will be decided on Monday night!
Allen, Burrow, Stefon Diggs, Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, Joe Mixon. Shoot, even Dawson Knox and Devin Singletary have proven their worth in the last few weeks and could be called upon again when fantasy managers in the championship game need it most. Of course, both these teams go as their quarterbacks do, and few signal-callers command as much stardom as the duo who will take the field in this game.
Burrow is the fourth highest-scoring fantasy quarterback of the season, coming off a 300+ yard, 3-TD game against the Patriots. Allen is coming off a rough game in blistery conditions, but he still totaled three touchdowns himself.
Both teams are likely looking toward the playoffs, but this remains one doozy of a matchup for Monday night. Fantasy managers will no doubt be glued to their seats in the hopes their Bills and Bengals stars deliver week-winning performances.
