These are the players that saw their stock rise or drop, on the Buffalo Bills after Week 1.
This past Sunday was the first time fans got to see real football from the 2020 version of the Buffalo Bills. While it was a small sample size, there were some performances that really stood out and players that may not have been talked about as much during training camp saw their stock really rise.
On the other side, there were some players that didn’t live up to expectations or have some work ahead of them in the coming weeks. With that said, these are the players on the Buffalo Bills that saw their stock move the most in Week 1.
Stock Up: Josh Allen
There is no question that the player who saw his stock rise the most was Josh Allen. The reason is that it rose so much is fans finally saw the production that matched what many believe he can be in this league.
He finished the game with a career-high in passing yards (312 yards) and completions (33) on 46 pass attempts. He added two passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown but did have two fumbles.
One of the things that were great to see was how much the coaching staff trusted Allen as he threw the ball 39 times when the Buffalo Bills had the lead. This is significant considering he threw only 137 passes with the lead all of last season.
He looked comfortable in this offense, got the ball out in rhythm but still showed the threat of running when the situation called for it. This was undoubtedly one of his best performances and hopefully, he builds on it against the Miami Dolphins.
