CBS Fantasy Projections Don't Favor Bills Receivers

Fantasy football drafts are starting to occur more frequently with the NFL pre-season underway, and to the surprise of exactly zero people nationwide, Buffalo Bills wide receivers aren't hot commodities. CBSSports.com's wide receiver projections highlight this reality.

The projection is par for the course for Lee Evans, predicting that the seventh-year pro will have what we might refer to as a "typical Lee Evans year," with 62 catches, 828 yards and five touchdowns. That slots him between Pittsburgh's Mike Wallace and Kansas City's Chris Chambers; at least Evans is a Top 50 receiving prospect, because the projection gets pretty bleak from there.

CBS predicts that 2008 second-round pick James Hardy will be Buffalo's second-leading wide receiver with 24 grabs, 323 yards and three touchdowns. Marcus Easley gets 22 catches, 284 yards and two scores. Steve Johnson, the likely opening-day starter opposite Evans, gets 16 catches, 221 yards and one score. Chad Jackson (13/160/1) and Roscoe Parrish (14/144/1) also make the 188-player list, but aside from Evans, none of these receivers rank in the Top 95 of the CBS projection. (Hardy ranks No. 98.)

Which of these receivers would you feel comfortable stashing as a deep reserve on your fantasy teams, Bills fans?
