Bills receivers lag behind in yardage distribution

The Buffalo Bills aerial attack has left a great deal to be desired this season.

The Bills are last in the league in total passing yards, gaining a meager 772 yards through the air, as a team. The NFL leader and an opponent this upcoming week, DeAndre Hopkins, has 594. 

This stat is sobering to a sputtering offense, as it ranks behind teams who have already worked through their bye week. After subtracting yards lost from sacks, the Bills average a net of 121.8 passing yards per game.

While the total passing yards are still a work in progress, the yards gained by positions groups is not as imbalanced as other teams in the league. The distribution reveals Buffalo does not rely on one particular unit for moving the ball forward via the air arsenal. Andy Stagg of Pyromaniac.com broke down the Bills passing yardage distribution for the first five games of the year thus far.
