Stills has only 37 targets this season, which is significantly down from last season when he saw a career-high 105 targets. The 26-year-old receiver said Thursday he doesn’t think that’s his fault, though he added: “There’s no single person we can point the finger at.”
“I couldn’t tell you exactly why I’m not getting more targets. I can tell you I’m getting open,” Stills told reporters Thursday, per the Miami Herald. “There are other guys open on plays, too, that aren’t getting hit. … I can’t throw the ball to myself.
“We all get frustrated but I’m a team guy, always have been. Whatever we got to do to win.”
Stills also said he’s been consistently open in a way that would be “game-changing” if he’s given the opportunity.
The Dolphins have lost four of their last five games and hold a 5-6 record, despite starting the season 3-0. Miami’s offense ranks 27th in passing yards per game and 25th in scoring while Tannehill and Osweiler have split time under center this season. Osweiler started five of the six games he’s played while filling in for Tannehill, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury.
Miami will host the 4-7 Bills on Sunday with kickoff slated for 1 p.m. ET.
