Where receiving candidates stand in preseason

Posted by Chris Brown on September 1, 2016 – 2:03 pm

Wide receiver is one of the position battles that still has a spot or two open on Buffalo’s 53-man roster. Who has done the most in terms of production to stake claim to a role?

Taking a look at the preseason stats entering tonight’s game against the Lions, it’s pretty apparent who has done the most. Below is a look at the receiving stats for the Bills in the preseason for players who are still on the roster entering the preseason finale. In all fairness some of it can be tied to playing time as well.

But those players fighting for roster spots will get plenty of opportunity tonight to make a final impression on the coaching staff.
