Bills No. 2 wideout job a mystery
Posted May. 31 at 11:52 PM
Dynasty leagues tend to feature very deep rosters, so essentially every starting wide receiver in the NFL is on somebody's team. The exception in most leagues is Buffalo's starter across from Lee Evans, which makes sense. Even the Bills don't know who that player will be.
Our guess is Steve Johnson, but it's just a guess. The only reason to give him the edge is that he's been functional in the last couple of preseasons. The Buffalo News thinks James Hardy will be the guy.
"I feel this is my breakout season," says Hardy, who was selected in the second round back in 2008. Hardy struggled early that season, tore his ACL late, and rehabbed through the first part of last season. So injuries, at least in part, can be blamed for his lack of an impact thus far.
In addition to Hardy and Johnson, the Bills have fourth-round rookie Marcus Easley, and Patriots and Broncos cast-off Chad Jackson. Whoever wins the job, of course, will likely be playing in the league's worst passing offense catching balls from either Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick or Brian Brohm.
Still, the Bills had the league's 30th-ranked passing offense a year ago, so they can't get much worse. And Terrell Owens still managed to put up 829 receiving yards. One of these wideouts, then, will likely emerge.
And if you're in a dynasty format, he's probably available on waivers right now.
