Summary

Yeldon joined the Bills and found himself in the midst of a glut of running backs, as well as one of the most prolific rushing quarterbacks in the NFL. Sure, Frank Gore and LeSean McCoy are getting on in years, and the Bills will be looking towards the future, which could help Yeldon find a role, but that won't help his numbers right now. He can both run and catch the ball, which will keep him busy, and the Bills look like they will be a run-heavy team again this season, but barring injury or a massive shift in personnel, it's hard to see Yeldon breaking out as a reliable option.
