2.) Familiarity with Ken Dorsey’s system with backs, receivers and quarterback

The Bills offense is heading into their second season under offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey, who ultimately helped the Bills finish the 2022 season with the fourth best overall offense, ranking second in points and total yardage.

Even though the Buffalo Bills had faced some challenges along the way on offense, and the offseason drama surrounding Stefon Diggs because of speculation that he was not as involved in the offense as much as he wanted to be, Dorsey still managed to inherit an offense and finish near the top of the league.

Now that there is familiarity of what Dorsey wants from his players and that there is no “rebuild” in the system, the skill players on the outside and in the backfield will be able to pick up on what is expected. The offensive line has to be able to know what blocking assignments are happening on each play, run or pass.
