Trade For: James Cook

The backfield for this offense will have a new lead back which should be last year's second round draft pick James Cook. With the departure of Devin Singletary in free agency, this opens the door for Cook to have a breakout season.

Last year, Cook was very efficient on the ground and showed some big play ability with an average of 5.6 yards per carry. However, where a majority of his fantasy points will come from is in the passing game and Cook has the chance to be a low-end RB1 in PPR leagues this season.

In the past three seasons, Singletary has had at least 50 targets each year and 38 receptions with an average of 6.7 yards per reception. However, Singletary is not a great receiver and those opportunities were seemingly more out of necessity.

Meanwhile, James Cook is a much better pass catcher and this past season had 32 targets and 21 receptions while averaging 8.6 yards per reception. The Bills did add Damien Harris this offseason but he is not really a pass catcher and has only 51 career targets over four seasons.

The addition of Harris has given some the idea that James Cook won't have enough work to be a viable fantasy option. However, he is unlikely to get much of the vacated targets from Singletary and James Cook realistically could finish the year with close to 75 targets.
