Gabriel Davis

Another player from the 2020 draft class who should have a breakout season in their second year is wide receiver Gabriel Davis. The former fourth round pick had a productive rookie season with seven receiving touchdowns, which was second on the team. He also had 599 receiving yards and an impressive yards per reception average of 17.1 yards.

He was able to be this productive essentially being the starter for only about three-quarters of the season by starting 11 games. This year, even though Emmanuel Sanders was added, he should be the full-time starter in this offense for the entire season.

This additional playing time, along with his familiarity with Josh Allen and the offense, should help him build off the rookie season. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Davis not only keep the starting job but become Allen’s number two option behind only Stefon Diggs.
