The Buffalo Bills' offense made huge strides in 2020, thanks to Josh Allen's continued improvement and the trade that brought in Stefon Diggs. Buffalo's scoring rose from 19.6 points per game in 2019 to a whopping 31.3 PPG in 2020, thanks to an elite passing attack.

That being said, the team's offense fell short in the AFC Championship, and it's clear the Bills need help at WR to alleviate the pressure from Diggs and Cole Beasley.

Here are four wide receivers that could be targets for Buffalo in the NFL Draft or free agency.

1. Sammy Watkins, UFA

Could Sammy Watkins return to the team that drafted him in the first round in 2014? Not as\t his current salary of $9 million per year, but perhaps significantly less. And Watkins may not command too much more as a free agent with his injury issues the past three season with the Chiefs. He's still only 28 years old, and he had his best two years with Buffalo to start his career.

2. Elijah Moore, Ole Miss

Elijah Moore is an undersized wideout with outstanding versatility, quickness and toughness. He lacks size, but he'll find a place in the slot and also help in the return game. His standout 2020 SEC season included 86 receptions, 1,193 yards, and 8 touchdowns in just eight games. Moore is projected anywhere from the first to third round, and the Bills would be smart to pounce on him

3. Tutu Atwell, Louisville

Tutu Atwell projects as a slot receiver in the NFL after showing play-making ability in 2020. He put up 625 receiving yards in 9 games this season after a breakout sophomore year in 2019 with 1,272 yards and 11 touchdowns. Atwell adds unparalleled explosion and short-area quickness, making him another worthwhile target.

4. Trevon Grimes, Florida

Trevon Grimes is a mismatch weapon with nice play-making ability. If the Bills want a bigger receiver in the middle rounds of the NFL Draft, then Grimes may be a target. The 6-foot 4 wideout played 11 games in 2020 and had 38 catches for 589 yards. Grimes is a former 5-star recruit who is an interesting case study. His college production didn't meet expectations, but he's a superb athlete with speed. Add in his body control and ball tracking ability, and his upside is intriguing.
