Bills receivers Chris Hogan and Marcus Easley saw the most action at receiver early in the win over Minnesota Friday night. Hogan finished as the team’s leading receiver with four catches for 34 yards on seven targets. Easley was targeted five times and had three catches for 46 yards. With just one or possibly two open spots left at receiver, Hogan and Easley could be the pair with a slim lead on the rest of the competition.
It’s widely believed that Stevie Johnson, T.J. Graham, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin are locked in as the top four wideouts.
That leaves one, possibly two (if the team keeps 6 WRs) spots open for players like Hogan and Easley, who have been among the more productive reserve receivers to this point in camp and the game.
Head coach Doug Marrone has certainly noticed.
“Those guys have done a nice job in training camp, they’ve done a good job in special teams,” said Marrone. ”They got a lot of looks out there, so again the more we can put them on tape the better they can get and develop. Marcus was out for a bit of time (in the spring). Hogan has been very productive for us, so I just think it’s a matter of having those guys out there. It’s going to be some tough decisions to make down the road on the receivers with the numbers. We’ve got some pretty good players and guys that are playing well at that receiver position.”
