WR snap counts through 3 games

Posted by Chris Brown on August 29, 2013 – 4:00 pm

Snap counts in the preseason at times can shed some light on what the coaching staff is thinking with respect to certain players. Do they need to see more of them, less of them or have they already made up their mind about them? Through three preseason games here are the wide receiver snap counts on both offense and special teams with tonight’s final preseason game against the Lions on tap.

Playing time thru 2 for WRs

Posted by Chris Brown on August 24, 2013 – 2:35 pm

Here’s a look at the snap counts for the Bills wide receivers through two preseason games.

Knowing their snaps on special teams could be an indicator as to a receiver’s chances to make the roster, below the table of their snap counts on offense are their special teams snap counts as well.

WR offensive snap counts thru 2 games
Name                                    Snaps
Robert Woods                   65
Marcus Easley                   63
Chris Hogan                        59
Brandon Kaufman           53
Marquise Goodwin         52
DeMarco Sampson          44
Da’Rick Rogers                  33
T.J. Graham (1 gm)          27
Brad Smith (1 gm)            11

WR special teams snap counts thru 2 games
Name                                    Snaps
Marcus Easley                   24
Chris Hogan                        16
Da’Rick Rogers                  16
Marquise Goodwin         14
DeMarco Sampson          12
Robert Woods                   10
Brad Smith (1 gm)            2
T.J. Graham (1 gm)          1
Brandon Kaufman           0

The coaching staff’s eagerness to get long looks at Easley and Hogan are obvious on both offense and special teams. Not seeing any time on special teams for Brandon Kaufman certainly doesn’t help his cause. We’ll have to see if he sees action on special teams this afternoon against Washington.
