With star rookie Sammy Watkins struggling and the Buffalo Bills desperately trying to work through several issues offensively, second-year wideout Robert Woods has been a saving grace for the Bills' offense in the last two weeks. He's had several key catches during the Bills' two-game winning streak, contributing 13 receptions, 189 yards, and a touchdown (on 18 targets) along the way.
In this week's breakdown of the Bills' passing game targets, we'll sort the group by the amount of time they've spent on the field this season - so you shouldn't be surprised to see three receivers, a running back and a tight end atop the list. (It also gives you a good idea of how frequently the Bills use specific packages, like the three-tight end look that has become prevalent in their weekly game plans.) It should also not be surprising that the Bills' top five receivers this season have all been on the field more than the rest of the list.
In a week in which the Bills will need to outscore a Peyton Manning team to keep their slim playoff hopes alive, (most of) the guys on the list below will need to be on their A game on Sunday - and so will the man throwing them the ball, Kyle Orton.
