Bills WR David Nelson got a lot of national attention after Week Two, when he had 10 catches for 83 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown. Now, with Roscoe Parrish done for the season, Nelson is expected to get more targets. The way we hear it, though, Nelson's increased involvement in the offense should not be a surprise and was bound to happen regardless of Parrish's injury. Undrafted out of Florida in 2010, Nelson has good size (6-5, 215) and very good hands. "Nelson catches everything," one daily observer said. The Bills are thin at wide receiver, with Marcus Easley and Parrish on injured reserve, and Lee Evans is now a Raven. Buffalo brought in WRs Donnie Avery and Jaymar Johnson for a tryout last week, but stuck with what they have on the roster. Expect Nelson to continue to excel out of the slot and be the team's second-most productive receiver behind Stevie Johnson. C.J. Spiller and Brad Smith also can line up at receiver to remedy the depth issue.
