James Cooks Set For "Large Portion" of Backfield
10 months ago

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen believes that RB James Cook is “going to take a large portion of the carries and in the pass game, he’s going to be kind of a dual threat guy for us”.

The Buffalo Bills enter 2023 with 265 vacated opportunities in their backfield following Nyheim Hines season-ending injury and the departures of Devin Singletary, Zack Moss, and Duke Johnson. Josh Allen has given his stamp of approval for James Cook to take the bulk of the reps. The 2nd-Round sophomore back out of Georgia has dominated as a receiver and a runner throughout the offseason but has struggled mightily in pass protection.

 

Buffalo signed former Patriots back Damien Harris to a 1-year deal just above the veteran minimum and signed Latavius Murray to the vet min to compete for the grinder-back touches between the tackles and in short-yardage situations. Expect to see plenty of James Cook between-the-20s and when Josh Allen decides to check it down.

 

What prevents Cook from becoming anything more than an RB2 is his 199lb frame. The 216lb Damien Harris and the 223lb Latavius Murray will be the ones getting the work inside the 5-yard line.
