Mack Hollins

When looking at wide receiver, it seems clear at this moment in time that Stefon Diggs, Khalil Shakir, and Curtis Samuel will finish Top 3 in targets for the Buffalo Bills. However, one of these players will fall out of that group when looking at snap counts.

Samuel wasn't the only free agent wide receiver the Bills signed this offseason and in fact Mack Hollins was the first player at the position they agreed to a contract with. It is hard to imagine that a player who has only 131 career receptions could have a big impact but Hollins seems to be the direct replacement for Gabe Davis.

He is a big wide receiver at 6'4" and 221 pounds who does a pretty good job getting downfield with a career average of 12.9 yards per reception. The one thing that stands out, and why Hollins is going to be on the field a lot this season, is his run-blocking. This was something Gabe Davis did well and Hollins seems like a perfect replacement here.

Hollins probably won't play 90% of the offensive snaps or get close to 100 targets but fans are going to see a lot of Mack Hollins this upcoming season.
