Bills | Robert Woods has gone quiet
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:03:26 -0700
Buffalo Bills rookie WR Robert Woods developed some nice chemistry with QB EJ Manuel early in the season, but his production has dropped since QB Thaddeus Lewis has taken over for the injured Manuel. "I think his production numbers are down," head coach Doug Marrone said. "But not his playing time. He's playing more than anybody." Woods has played in 565 of the team's 592 offensive snaps this year. Marrone suggested that opposing defenses may be paying more attention to Woods now.
A drop in production was expected going from Manuel to Lewis throwing Woods the football. If the team targets Woods more often going forward, as he suggests, his production could be back on the rise. However, for now, consider Woods more of a flex play in deeper leagues.
