The Buffalo Bills lacked playmakers on offense in 2018 and that was reflected in the grades handed out by Pro Football Focus.
It is no secret that the Buffalo Bills struggled on offense in 2018.
Luckily, Josh Allen was able to step in and provide some competent quarterback play for much of the season. He didn’t have much help around him, but he did elevate others and lead the Bills to a few exciting victories.
Pro Football Focus recently shared some grades in regards to the Bills offense.
This list is both good and bad.
The good news is that Allen was among the highest-graded players on offense. If the quarterback is not included, that is a major issue.
Robert Foster‘s name being on there is also a good thing. He went all the way from being undrafted to being the best receiver on offense.
The bad news is that LeSean McCoy did not make the list. The same goes for Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones. The focal points in Week 1 faded throughout the year and Benjamin was so bad he was let go before the season even ended.
The main surprise from the grades is Chris Ivory. He only finished with 385 rushing yards on the year and one touchdown. He also had 205 receiving yards on the year.
Nothing he did stood out as amazing, but he did pick up 25 rushing first downs. McCoy only had 22. Meanwhile, Allen had 41.
None of these numbers are amazing so the main takeaway from the year is that some young players on offense got plenty of experience. We will likely be seeing many new faces on offense in 2019 at every position other than quarterback.
