Don’t expect Gilmore on Wayne every snap

While the Bills defensive staff is feeling more and more comfortable assigning Stephon Gilmore to the opponent’s top receiver every week, do not expect to see Gilmore lined up opposite Reggie Wayne all over the field today.

Wayne operates primarily out of the slot now where he’ll be put in a stack formation to help him gain separation off the line. As well as Gilmore has played of late I get the sense that they don’t want to move Gilmore inside now to line up in the slot and ask him to play in a role he has not played to this point in a game in his pro career.

I’d expect to see Gilmore lined up opposite Wayne when he lines up outside, but inside Justin Rogers is expected to be the slot corner on Wayne.
