Dalton Kincaid proves to be the missing piece in the Buffalo offense

While the Buffalo Bills have perhaps underperformed on the season, given their latest lost against the Bengals puts them at 5-4 on the season, there has been a clear bright spot on the offensive side of the ball. It’s always nice when you hit on your draft picks and even better when they can produce right away, and it certainly feels like the Bills hit big on first round rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid.

Since an injury took veteran Dawson Knox out of the lineup for Buffalo, Kincaid has stepped up in a big way. Over the last three games Kincaid has managed 23 catches, 221 yards, and the first touchdown of his career. Kincaid has proven to be the safety blanket for quarterback Josh Allen and is quickly becoming the second most reliable receiver on the Bills’ roster.

Even with the struggles on the offensive side of the ball for Buffalo as of late it’s promising that their young playmaker is stepping up to already be one of the better tight ends in the league. If this Buffalo offense really starts to click later in the season Kincaid could blow up even more, he certainly has the talent to do so.
