However, as an eleven-year NFL veteran, we’re expecting the Bills to sign him to their active roster quickly, as he, when healthy, provided a spark to their offense.
The Bills currently stand as the number one overall team in the AFC, and, if they continue to hold that position, will hold home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Where Does Beasley Fit In On This Offense?
However, Davis is much more of a deep threat than an in-line receiver, so the Bills could undoubtedly use Beasley as a number three option in their passing game.
In his four seasons with quarterback Josh Allen, Beasley had 236 receptions, 3,110 yards, and 14 touchdowns.
Allen and Beasley already have a rapport that was built over those four seasons.
If signed to the Bills’ active roster, Beasley could make an instant impact on this team, likely garnering a 15-20% target share in this offense.
The Bills need to keep winning games to hold on to the coveted home-field advantage.
Will the Bills give Beasley significant minutes as a member of their starting roster?
Or, will he just be a depth piece for their playoff run?
