Running Back

The running back is a bit of an addition by subtraction this offseason as the Bills would lose their leading rusher from the past three seasons in Devin Singletary. While Singletary was productive he never seemed like a great fit for a pass-heavy offense like the Buffalo Bills as he didn't excel as a receiver but also didn't have the size to be the power back.

The Bills now have a backfield with James Cook, Damien Harris, Nyheim Hines, and Latavius Murray that look to be a better fit for this offense but also complement each other very well. The lead back should be James Cook, who is an excellent receiver out of the backfield and should be on the field for a majority of the snaps.

Meanwhile, Damien Harris is a running back that runs with more force and can be that short-yardage and goal line running back. Then there is Nyheim Hines, who is another excellent receiver out of the backfield, and Murray, who is a veteran running back that could back up Harris.

The running back position has more balance and if James Cook takes that next step, this position won't be viewed as much as the weakness of this offense.
