Bills Trade for Christian McCaffrey or Saquon Barkley - Or Let James Cook?

Arrow

During the first four weeks of the season, a running back for the Buffalo Bills had yet to score a rapid touchdown. That changed when Bill deceived James.

Arrow

Cook sharpened his way to a sliced, 24-yard touchdown from the middle of the offensive line in a 38-3 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

Arrow

The touchdown is the first of Cook's Bill and NFL career, but serves as a wakeup call. Maybe it's time to give the rookie the reins in the Buffalo backfield.

Yes, we are aware of the ideas of doing business for Christian McCaffrey of Carolina or Giants Sacon Barclay. But the bills have already invested here...

Arrow

Cook has averaged 5.2 yards per carry this season compared to Devin Singletary (the current lead back at Buffalo), averaging 4.3.

Additionally, Cook averages 2.6 yards per rush after contact this season, compared to 1.4 rushing yards of singletary followed by contact per rushing yard. Pro Football Focus Also Grade

When Buffalo selected Cook at the end of the second round in this year's draft, many Bill fans reported about the pick. I expected Cook to take it.

Arrow

Eventually lead into the Buffalo backfield. Cook has scored his first rushing touchdown in Buffalo, when is it better than now?

Arrow

As we write here, again, we get the McCaffrey charm. However, the future of running after the north and the future may already be in the bill locker room.

Arrow

After their performance against Pittsburgh, we say it's time for singleties to make a little room for rookies... And let Go of James Cook for the Bills.
