James Hardy could win WR2 job in BUF

The Buffalo News - [Full Article]

Is this the year James Hardy emerges as an impact wide receiver?

Terrell Owens is gone after one overly hyped season. The Bills also declined to re-sign long-time veteran Josh Reed, leaving the offense with a young, unproven corps of receivers behind Lee Evans.

There are a number of candidates for the No. 2 spot, with Steve Johnson, Chad Jackson and rookie Marcus Easley entered in the wide-open competition.

Head coach Chan Gailey said it's way too early to tell who will come out on top. But Hardy, a 2008 second-round draft pick, is expected to be the guy. He is certainly approaching this offseason like the job already belongs to him.

Fantasy Impact: 

No matter who wins the job they won't be highly sought after in the fantasy world. He may be worth a late pick or could be someone to watch on the waiver wire as every year WRs tend to come out of no where.
