WR Damion Willis - Cincinnati Bengals
|6-3, 204||Born: 6-20-1997||College: Troy||Drafted: ---|
2019 Week 1 vs SEA (5 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
While John Ross made the big plays and stole all of the headlines, Willis actually led the wide receivers in snaps (90%). He caught a 3rd-down slant for six yards. Willis made a 17-yard grab, sitting down in the soft spot of the Seattle zone for an easy grab. He drew a 15-yards pass interference penalty on a key 4th-quarter play. It was a relatively quiet debut for the undrafted rookie but he looks like he is going to be a big part of the offense for as long as A.J. Green is out.
2019 Week 2 vs SF (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Willis played 64% of the snaps (down from 90% last week), losing playing time to Auden Tate. He made a short catch but wasn't able to come up with either of his other targets. One was thrown low on a comeback route and would have been a tough catch. The other incompletion was on a deep ball down the left sideline that was fairly well covered where Willis wasn't able to come up with the contested catch. The two incompletions weren't exactly poor plays by Willis but he wasn't able to make the play when given the opportunity. He has a limited window to make an impact while Green it sidelined and hasn't been able to take advantage of the opportunity.
