Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 17 vs NYJ (5 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods has slid into the #2 WR role nicely over the course of the year. He did not put up big yardage against the Jets but he was able to convert multiple third downs. While he isn't flashy, Woods is steady at moving the sticks. He is a free agent and will not pick up big money but will be a boon to the team that does pay him.
2016 Week 16 vs MIA (6 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods was utilized in crossing routes but his most effective damage was done when he was wide-open on a fleaflicker play. In a game where Taylor threw a ton, Woods was part of the offense but not a key cog.
2016 Week 15 vs CLE (2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods bobbled a poor crossing route throw and was not utilized much otherwise with the success of the running game. It was a game to forget for Woods.
2016 Week 14 vs PIT (3 / 1 / 29 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods received a few targets but wasn't able to do much with them. Woods slipped while trying to make his first catch and tipped the ball into the hands of the waiting defender who ran clean into the endzone. This was called back for defensive holding on a different receiver. The next two passes going his way had Woods let the ball slip through his hands, including a TD pass. Woods did catch a deep middle-of-field throw to end his night but it was too little, too late.
2016 Week 11 vs CIN (3 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods suffered a knee injury in the second quarter that ended his afternoon. Before exiting, Woods benefitted from a bit of good fortune. On a 3rd-and-5 play in the first quarter, Josh Shaw lined up against Woods in the slot. Shaw blitzed, but the safety forgot to cover Woods. Woods caught a quick slant and ran into the open field for a 24-yard gain. Taylor came back to Woods in the second quarter, targeting him on a post route for a 13-yard gain. The pass attempt was slightly deflected by Adam Jones, but Woods showed good concentration to haul the pass in. Woods' knee awkwardly bent backwards in the second quarter, ending his afternoon.
2016 Week 9 vs SEA (13 / 10 / 162 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods had the best game of his career on Monday night. His game-high 13 targets were 8 more than the second most-targeted player on the Bills. On the field, Woods was able to consistently gain separation from his coverage and find holes in zones. He caught every realistic pass in his direction, made defenders miss when he had the ball, and extended crucial drives. Early in the game, Woods beat the safety to get wide open in the endzone but Tyrod Taylor threw the ball far past him. His other endzone target on the last play of the game was nowhere near him. Woods was involved in the best play of the night; he got himself open during a wild Taylor escape and made a tiptoe sideline catch to convert 3rd and 21 late in the game. In the one negative for Woods, he was involved in the interception. The int may have been his fault or it may have been Taylor's; there was clearly a major miscommunication on the route being run. Woods has grown into the #1 WR role and seems to play better every (healthy) game. If he can keep this style of play, Woods will be a decent complement to Sammy Watkins after he comes back from injury.
2016 Week 8 vs NE (7 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods had a slow start to the game while still dealing with his foot injury. He started getting targeted late in the game with the Bills behind and needing to pass to catch up. Even with his injury clearly hampering him, Woods was able to play a decent game and would have had a TD (albeit in garbage time) if the Manuel throw was better. If his foot can heal up, Woods will be back to the #1 WR in this offense soon enough.
2016 Week 6 vs SF (6 / 5 / 44 / 1 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Robert Woods maintained his position as #1 WR. There were multiple times when defenders played loose, essentially letting Woods catch the ball. But when the defense was playing him tighter, Woods was able to use some moves to get himself open. This can be seen best in his TD catch. His one negative on the night was a hold that wiped out a great Tyrod Taylor run.
2016 Week 5 vs LA (6 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods almost had a great day but it was ruined by both Tyrod Taylor's mistakes and his own. After adjusting his route in the endzone, Woods was almost able to come down with a TD pass but didn't manage to tap his feet in bounds on a very difficult catch. When Taylor was later looking for an open receiver, Woods dropped an open-field pass. But the biggest of the day came on a play in which Woods blew by his defender and was five yards clear with an easy trip to the endzone. A terrible pass by Taylor was overthrown and it was far out of reach of the diving Woods. Everything wasn't bad for Woods though. He was able to climb a ladder in order to convert a 3rd down on a high Taylor pass. The Bills will not be a passing team but Woods remains the best of a poor crop.
2016 Week 4 vs NE (10 / 7 / 89 / 0 rec)
With Sammy Watkins possibly out for the season, Robert Woods is now the #1 WR for the Bills. In a game where Taylor threw 39 times, Woods was targeted 10 times with two other WR splitting 5 targets each. With the exception of one "catch and lunge" to convert, Woods was not able to break many tackles after catching the ball. However, he threatened to get free multiple times. If Woods can manage to shed some tackles, his yardage totals will increase even further. On the other hand, as the season goes on and teams put their best CB on him, it will be difficult for Woods to be a game-changer.
2016 Week 3 vs ARI (8 / 6 / 51 / 0 rec)
With Sammy Watkins and Greg Salas both out, Robert Woods became the de facto #1 WR. With the most targets in the game for the Bills, Woods put up another decent game. His best play was escaping a hold and then making a diving catch for first down. Woods keeps chugging along as a competent (but not great) receiver.
2016 Week 2 vs NYJ (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods was irrelevant in this game. His only reception was on the last play and he immediately lateraled to Marquise Goodwin.
2016 Week 1 vs BAL (5 / 4 / 20 / 0 rec)
Robert Woods has locked in the WR spot opposite Sammy Watkins. He was utilized as a sideline receiver and displayed great awareness keeping his feet inbounds while making catches. He was less aware with the ball actually in his hands, stepping out of bounds while trying to juke a defender for a few extra yards. But that misstep will not cost him his position. If the Bills' offense explodes or if Watkins is held out for medical issues, Woods could be in a great position to step up. However, it must be noted that LeSean McCoy and Charles Clay are bigger receiving threats in this offense and will get their chances first.
