The Bills newest wide receiver didn’t get too many chances to make an impact on Sunday’s game. But that doesn’t mean he wasn’t on the field a lot. Here’s a look at his playing time in his Bills debut compared to the other receivers on the roster.

As seen below, Benjamin logged the most time on the field at the receiver position with 41 snaps for 85 percent participation. The Bills only ran 48 plays Sunday. Unfortunately Benjamin, after being targeted three times on the opening drive, wasn’t targeted again until four minutes left in the game.

Playtime percentage WRs
Kelvin Benjamin – 41 snaps (85%)
Deonte Thompson – 39 snaps (81%)
Jordan Matthews – 36 snaps (75%)
Andre Holmes – 9 snaps (19%)
Brandon Tate – 3 snaps (6%)

Watkins plays a lot despite ribs

Posted by Chris Brown on September 8, 2014 – 1:10 pm

Bills WR Sammy Watkins didn’t have a major impact on the game Sunday, but did play a role with three receptions for 31 yards in the overtime win. The Bills top draft choice admitted he was a bit limited by his sore ribs.

“I felt like I shot off pretty well. Coach called a great game; they managed the game. I was kind of held back from the ribs injury, but still overcame and had two or three big catches that moved the drive and played well.”

Watkins actually played 54 snaps, which was 95 percent of the total on offense (57) in the game. No other receiver, tight end or running back logged more snaps than Watkins. Robert Woods came closest with 52 snaps for 92 percent of the offensive play total.

Cordy Glenn – 57 – 100%
Chris Williams – 57 – 100%
Eric Wood – 57 – 100%
