Just as predicted, Gabriel Davis had a very good outing In replacement for the injured John Brown.
Slowly but surely Gabriel Davis‘ efforts, when given the chance to be a top target, have been improving his eligibility for the team’s WR2 for 2021. Recording a team-high 79 receiving yards and a touchdown on just three receptions, Davis has cemented himself as the best 2020 draft pick.
Averaging over 20 yards per reception, Davis added a vertical threat that has not been in the Bills’ arsenal with Brown. This is mainly due to the fact that Brown has not been fully healthy for quite some time this season. He has been in and out of the lineup nursing one injury after another.
As Brown continues to rehab from his injures, having Gabriel Davis in at 100% rather than Brown at 90% continues to be the better option. Though he lacks the years of experience that Brown has when he is on the field, Davis can provide the same spark that Brown does when need be.
Davis’ play throughout the season has also brought up a very good question on if the Bills will keep Brown after the season. Buffalo could save a considerable amount of money against the salary cap which could go towards resigning Matt Milano and/or Jon Feliciano for the long haul.
