Buffalo Bills: Beefing up the ground attack makes Josh Allen better
The Buffalo Bills have proved that they can keep up with the Miami Dolphins offensively, but outside of that 48-20 victory, the Bills have looked mediocre.
Yes, James Cook has been effective as the team’s lead running back, but adding a force like Derrick Henry seems like a match made in NFL heaven for a team that plays half their games up there in Buffalo.
Like the Cowboys, Henry would be a nice compliment to Cook who has turned into a nice dual-threat option out of the backfield, but they haven’t gotten much from veteran running backs Damien Harris and Latavius Murray so an opportunity to land Henry would greatly benefit the Bills’ offensive given the force he is out of the backfield.
Just imagine a defensive line looking behind center and seeing Henry standing even next to or behind Allen? Who do you key in on stopping? The Bills could utilize Allen’s running ability that much more or become an even more effective play action team getting the ball downfield to Stefon Diggs and the tight end duo of Dalton Kincaid and Dawson Knox.
