BuffaLowDown contributor Cole Shelton takes a look at the Buffalo Bills’ current wide receivers and where they will land come Week 1.
The Buffalo Bills lost a lot of key contributors at the receiver position this off-season, those being Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. It opened up two major roster spots that needed to be addressed this off-season.
And that is exactly what the Buffalo Bills did by drafting a receiver and adding cheap veteran options.
The Bills will head into training camp with Sammy Watkins the clear number one receiver. All the other positions, well they are up for grabs. The big question about the receivers is can Sammy Watkins stay healthy.
Sammy Watkins will enter training camp as the clear-cut number one receiver again, but there is uncertainty with Watkins. The Bills did not pick up his 5th year option and will be a free agent at years end.
The most likely scenario is Watkins re-signs on a short term bridge deal to prove he can be healthy.
Watkins will also have added pressure, with Woods Brandon Williams Womens Jersey and Goodwin gone. Watkins needs to step up and stay healthy if the Bills want to compete this year.
Sammy Watkins Role: Starting Receiver
Zay Jones
The Buffalo Bills traded up in the 2nd round to select Zay Jones, who should come in and compete for a starting receiver role. Jones comes to the Bills along with his college receiver coach, which should help Jones out.
Jones has very good hands and catches basically everything thrown to him. Although, speed is a knock on Jones, if he can play Robert Woods’ role on the inside and get yards after catch, it will only help the Bills offense.
And, if Jones starts to become a threat as a receiver it will open the field up for Watkins and limit double teams.
Zay Jones Role: Starting Receiver Opposite Sammy Watkins
Andre Holmes
Before the draft, when Holmes signed, he was projected to be the starting receiver opposite Watkins. Now, with the selection of Jones, it appears Holmes will have to fight for that spot.
Holmes is a valuable receiver who won’t see the Sherrick McManis Youth Jersey bulk of throws, but can be a very good red zone receiver. He’s a big body at 6’4″ 210 pounds and can also play up the middle. In the end, Homes’ signing will be a huge one for the depth of the receiver position.
Andre Holmes Role: Starting Receiver/Backup
