http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/24045670/ranking-nfl-best-worst-offensive-arsenals-weapons-2018#buf How they ranked them: These rankings are attempting to consider a team's skill-position talent without including the impact of the quarterback, offensive line or scheme. These rankings don't include contract value. I'm solely considering how these players will perform in 2018. The arsenals are weighted more toward receivers. Top-level talent wins out over depth. Didn't mention everyone. 29. Buffalo Bills "Knees are the concern with the Bills' weapons. Tight end Charles Clayhas spent the majority of his Bills career battling through knee issues. Top wideout Kelvin Benjamin was traded to the Bills in part because the Panthers were concerned about the long-term health of his knees. Second-year receiver Zay Jones, who was the worst starting wideout in the NFL last season by most metrics, underwent knee surgery in May. Shady McCoy saw his yards per carry drop by more than a full yard last season, although that was likely due more to an ill-fitting scheme than any significant drop in McCoy's own level of play. After the soon-to-be-30-year-old halfback, though, the Bills will be relying on players with a track record of injuries to catch passes from first-round pick Josh Allen (or AJ McCarron or Nathan Peterman). This is another team likely to be shopping for receivers next offseason." Soooo...the only teams ranked lower than us are the #32 Jets, #31 Dolphins & #30 Cowboys. I find it amusing that 3 of the bottom 4 teams in terms of offensive capabilities are AFC East teams. As if the Patriots didn't have it easy at the top of the division the past decade & a half, the other teams in their division can't seem to ever find a way to put together a potent offense. Granted, if either us or the Jets hit at QB this will change significantly (regardless of what the metrics used say, QB relevance still factors in to subconscious opinion), but it's just a problem that's plagued this division for so long now.
Good read on him. Take the time to read it all. I'm not pushing for or against him. I just thought it was a good read. http://theundefeated.com/features/lamar-jackson-louisville-could-change-the-nfl-if-he-gets-the-chance/

BigDingus posted a topic in The Stadium Wallhttp://bleacherreport.com/articles/2768346 "The Buffalo Bills could acquire the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft from the New York Giants, according to ESPN's Todd McShay." " Bleacher Report's Matt Miller also expects the Bills to trade up for a quarterback, but he predicted in his latest mock that they will nab UCLA's Josh Rosen after ascending to No. 6 in a swap with the Colts." I don't even want to think about what it'd take to get there, but as long as Beane & Co. are THAT confident in the guy (and don't grab Allen) I'm good with it. Also, ESPN article on "Ranking the NFL teams most likely to trade up to draft a QB" (Bills at #1) - http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/23019613/2018-nfl-draft-ranking-six-teams-mostly-likely-trade-top-quarterback 1. Buffalo Bills This is the most obvious choice. The Bills already moved up from No. 21 to No. 12 in a deal that sent left tackle Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati, and they still hold the No. 22 overall pick. Having two first-rounders gives Buffalo a unique ability to maneuver in the first round, and having unproven options AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman on the roster gives the team motivation. Problem is, the old draft value chart developed by Jimmy Johnson assigns a point value of 1,200 to the No. 12 pick and 800 to the No. 21 pick, which adds up to 2,000 and is therefore a bit less than, say, the 2,600 points assigned to the Giants' No. 2 pick. So if the Bills want to jump the Jets, it's going to take more than just their two 2018 first-rounders. Buffalo might be better off eyeing the Browns' No. 4 overall pick, though by that point, the Bills could be left with their fourth-choice quarterback.
