Last year, a great deal of the success the Buffalo Bills offense had was due to Josh Allen but he certainly wasn’t able to do it alone. He had help from a good, and very deep, wide receiver group that was led by Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley.
These two wide receivers combined for 209 receptions, 2,502 receiving yards, and 12 receiving touchdowns. Both players even were named All-Pros, with Diggs receiving first-team honors and Beasley being named to the second team.
However, it begs the question of where does Diggs and Beasley rank in Buffalo Bills franchise history among wide receiver duos. These are my Top 5 wide receiver duos for the Buffalo Bills.
5. Eric Moulds/Lee Evans (2004-2005)
The first duo on this list is Eric Moulds and Lee Evans, who played together in 2004 and 2005. These two wide receivers were at different points in their career as Moulds was entering his ninth and tenth seasons while Evans was just drafted 13th overall in the 2004 NFL Draft.
Their first season together was much better than their second but quarterback play likely played more of a factor in that. In 2004, the Bills had Drew Bledsoe under center and Evans finished with 843 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Moulds led the team with 1,043 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
In 2005, the Bills had a combination of Kelly Holcomb and J.P. Losman under center but Moulds still finished with 816 yards and four touchdowns with Evans ending the season with 743 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
Those were the only two seasons the two wide receivers played together as Moulds was traded after the 2005 season but these two formed one of the better wide receiver duos in franchise history.
