2.) James Cook

The second year back out of Georgia is set to take over the main running back responsibilities, as well as get involved in the passing game as an out of the backfield pass-catcher. Cook was getting heavily involved with the offense with his route running ability and getting the extra step on the defender down the sidelines to make a play. Not only has he impressed in the passing game, but it seems as if Cook has improved running in between and outside the tackles. 

The Bills have not had a consistent running game since Josh Allen was drafted back in 2018, but with the committee that they have with Cook, Damien Harris and Latavius Murray, this should take pressure off of Allen’s legs and allow Cook to also not have to carry the load on the ground attack.

Depending on the offensive scheme of offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey, Cook has a high ceiling to become an “x” factor in the Bills offense this season.
