With 3rd round rookie TJ Graham expected to focus on the slot in his 1st year in the league, Donald Jones has emerged as the favorite to start outside opposite Steve Johnson, but Derek Hagan also expects to compete for that starting job, according to buffalobills.com. David Nelson, who was actually the starter there for most of last season, is seen as a dark horse right now in that competition.

Nelson caught a good amount of passes last sseason, 61, but didn’t do much with them, going for 658 yards and not showing much after the catch ability. The Bills #2 receiver spot was pretty unproductive on the whole last season, but if Ryan Fitzpatrick can find his early season form from last year and keep it all season, whoever wins the #2 job might have some fantasy football upside in deep leagues.
