Bills Impressive Young Running Back To See Increased Workload In 2023

Buffalo Bills General Manager, Brandon Beane, expressed his excitement for second-year running back James Cook and the potential of an increased workload for the young talent.

Beane stated that the team is "looking forward to what he can do in Year 2, especially with an expanded workload and more touches."
Cook averaged an impressive 5.7 yards per carry on 89 rushes as a rookie, and with Devin Singletary becoming a free agent this offseason, Cook has a chance to establish himself as the lead back in Buffalo.

In total, over his first 16 games in the NFL, the twenty-three-year-old recorded 507 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 89 attempts. He also hauled in 21 receptions for 180 yards and a touchdown on 32 targets.
