Even before the Buffalo Bills' offense became frustratingly inefficient at passing the football during a two-game losing streak, the team wasn't exactly lighting it up through their air during their 2-0 start. Now, the team is making a quarterback switch in an attempt for more consistency in that phase of the offense.
Until that happens (and it might not), veteran running back Fred Jackson could remain the biggest part of the Bills' passing attack. He's on the field in obvious passing situations thanks to his pass-blocking prowess, but on a per-snap basis, no Bills skill player on offense is being targeted as a receiver more - including star rookie Sammy Watkins, who remains the team's leading receiver in yardage and scoring.
Here is the Bills' target breakdown after four weeks. It'll be interesting to see how things change, if they do, with Kyle Orton pulling the trigger.
|RB||Fred Jackson||141||24||17.0%||18.5%||19 rec, 170 yds, 1 TD|
|WR||Sammy Watkins||244||32||13.1%||24.6%||17 rec, 197 yds, 2 TD|
|WR||Robert Woods||233||29||12.4%||22.3%||11 rec, 119 yds|
|WR||Mike Williams||141||16||11.3%||12.3%||7 rec, 134 yds, 1 TD|
|RB||C.J. Spiller||111||10||9.0%||7.7%||10 rec, 81 yds, 1 TD|
|TE||Scott Chandler||187||13||6.9%||10.0%||9 rec, 116 yds|
|TE||Chris Gragg||64||2||3.1%||1.5%||1 rec, 14 yds|
|FB||Frank Summers||64||2||3.1%||1.5%||2 rec, 7 yds|
