6 observations from the Week 1 snap counts for the Buffalo Bills
Reggie Gilliam and Jake Kumerow see an increase in snaps
On the offensive side of the ball, there were two players that surprisingly saw an increase in snaps this week. Fullback Reggie Gilliam played 19 offensive snaps (32%) and wide receiver Jake Kumerow played 14 offensive snaps (24%).
Both players have primarily been special teams contributors but offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey appears to have plans for almost everyone on the offensive side of the ball during the course of the game.
The inclusion of both of these players could be a way to try and help the run game with Reggie Gilliam leading the way for Devin Singletary and Zack Moss. Meanwhile, Kumerow is a good run-blocking wide receiver, and having him on the field in clear run situations can give some rest to players like Stefon Diggs, who only played 68% of the offensive snaps.
