Bills looking for their WR2

The Sun News - [Full Article]

Now that Terrell Owens has come and gone, Lee Evans finds himself facing an all-too familiar question with the Buffalo Bills receiving group going through yet another transformation.

Who, Evans is left wondering, will emerge as the latest in a long string of No. 2 receivers who will line up opposite him once the season opens? There have been so many during Evans' previous six seasons in Buffalo, he's having trouble remembering them all.

There's Steve Johnson, a 2008 seventh-round pick, who opened camp at the No. 2 spot as a reward for his performance during spring practices. He's followed by James Hardy, the 2008 second-round pick, who's career has so far been derailed by injuries. Also in the mix is Chad Jackson, a 2006 second-round pick, who was a flop in New England, and signed by the Bills this offseason.

It's a list that doesn't include speedster Roscoe Parrish, the fifth-year player, who is expected to be primarily used in the slot in place of Reed, who was not re-signed this offseason.

Fantasy Impact: 

Evans is barely on the fantasy radar, rated 40th at with an ADP of the 13th round. Whoever wins the number-two job probably won't have much of a fantasy impact at least early on.
