Depth Chart Fantasy Impact

Buffalo added speed to the backfield in Round 2 pick James Cook. While he never posted true breakout numbers at Georgia, Cook’s tape showed an excellent athlete with clear receiving ability. He exits college with 67 catches for 730 yards across 4 seasons. Cook also tallied a career-best 728 yards in 2021 while playing alongside Vegas’ Round 4 pick Zamir White.

Cook will form a 1-2 punch with Devin Singletary, who’s coming off a career-best season. Singletary’s 2021 turned up 188 carries, 870 yards and 7 scores. He added 40 receptions for 228 yards and another score. For the second straight season, the 25-year-old appeared in each game. He’s scheduled for free agency next spring.

Buffalo moved on from WRs Cole Beasley and Emmanuel Sanders over the offseason. That duo accounted for 184 targets last season. Veteran Jamison Crowder and rookie Round 5 pick Khalil Shakir arrived as reinforcements, with Crowder more likely to make a 2022 impact. He’ll compete with Isaiah McKenzie for the primary slot role a year after making only 12 appearances with the Jets. The Duke product tallied 51 catches at a career-low 8.8 yards per reception. Shakir was widely regarded as a draft-night steal, but he’s more likely to make a 2023 impact.

Neither newcomer projects for a significant target share with Stefon Diggs and up-and-comer Gabriel Davis returning.

At TE, Buffalo took a low-risk, 1-year flier on former Buccaneer O.J. Howard. Only 27, Howard pairs with Dawson Knox to form one of the league’s most enticing TE duos. The question is just how much Howard has left in the tank following a series of injuries, most notably a 2020 Achilles tear. Last year with the Bucs, Howard managed only 14 catches in 17 games while backing up Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate.
