í No. 2 wide receiver battle Outside of veteran Kelvin Benjamin ose options comes with question marks. Thereís 2017 second-round draft pick Zay Jones (drafted 37th overall), who suffered through an inconsistent rookie season that saw him be targeted 74 times (tied for second on the team) but come down with only 27 catches for 316 yards with two touchdowns. Drops were a major issue for Jones. Former first-round draft pick Corey Coleman, a speedster who hauled in 56 passes for 718 yards with five touchdowns in his two seasons in Cleveland, but who also missed 13 games due to a broken hand injury suffered each season, was acquired in a trade with the Cleveland Browns. Jeremy Kerley seems destined to line up as a slot receiver after signing a free agent contract with the Bills this offseason, while Andre Holmes, Malachi Dupre, and Rod Streater seem among the most likely returners to contribute at wide receiver this year. We asked Football Outsiders which options will step up and secure the Nos. 2 and 3 spots on the wide receiver depth chart. ďItís a hard question to answer,Ē Rivers McCown said. ďFrom the outside, the answer is easy: Corey Coleman was an easy first-round pick for me and I thought he was a good buy-low opportunity for a Bills team in desperate need of outside help. The fact that Coleman could only draw nominal interest, though, is concerning in and of itself. The next three weeks are huge for his career.ĒďI think the easiest answers to your question are Holmes and Kerley. Holmes is such a size-speed mismatch that he appeals heavily to coaches who look at this sort of thing and not at who will actually catch a football. He also is probably the best blocker in the group, which I think will be a big draw in a close competition. Kerley will be catching 30 balls a season for a weak passing offense in 2039, thatís just what he was built to do. While I wasnít itís clear he has some good will to restore at this point.ĒRay-Ray McLoud, a sixth round draft pick in 2018, Austin Proehl, selected with the next-to-last pick of the draft, and undrafted free agents Cam Phillips and Robert Foster are two other names to watch as the wide receiver depth chart shakes out over the coming weeks. While there arenít a lot of household names among the corps of wide receivers, there will be ample opportunities for the wide receivers to step up and contribute in offensive coordinator Brian Dabollís system.The Football Outsiders Almanac is available now.Buffalo Bills end first half with zero first downs The Buffalo Bills didnít just have zero points at the end of the first half. They had zero first downs. According to Mike Rodak of ESPN, thatís the first time since at least 2001 that Buffalo didnít even have one first down in the opening half of a game. The Bills head into the locker room with just 25 total yards. Pair that with seven penalties for 71 (SEVENTY-ONE!) yards, and youíll see the Bills offense is sputtering.Quarterback Nathan Peterman has 17 yards passing but has also been sacked three times. He threw a second quarter interception, as well, when the ball floated over his receiver in the middle of the field.On the ground, LeSean McCoy has three yards on four carries and Marcus Murphy has two carries for 16 yards. (Many of those yards came on third and long.)Earlier today, we said Brian Daboll needed to hit the ground running as the Billsí new offensive coordinator. He has hit the ground, for sure, but face planted instead.
