Buffalo Bills: 5 Bold Predictions for the 2019 season
Bills will not have 1,000 yard receiver
This may not be a bold prediction considering the fact that the Bills have not had a 1,000 yard receiver since Sammy Watkins in 2015. Since that season, this offense hasn’t had a receiver break 700 yards in a season.
While the additions of John Brown and Cole Beasley should improve the position, the Bills will still not have a receiver crack the century mark. There are two factors working against the receivers trying to achieve this.
The first is that while the coaching staff will like to see Josh Allen throw more in his second season, this offense will still rely on the run game. Even with an increase in pass attempts in 2019, the Bills will likely finish in the bottom half of the league in this category.
The second issue is that this offense doesn’t have a go-to wide receiver and when they do throw the ball, expect Josh Allen to move it around. He has a number of weapons at his disposal including John Brown, Cole Beasley, Zay Jones at wide receiver with Devin Singletary and T.J. Yeldon out of the backfield.
It would not be surprising to see the Bills finish with all three wide receivers finish with over 600 receiving yards but they won’t have that one player that will be the primary receiver.
