This is the week to add Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis and he should be a waiver wire target in fantasy football

Last week, I wrote that Matt Breida should be a priority waiver wire target and he responded with 55 total yards and one touchdown. The more important number though was 21, which was the number of snaps he played against the New Orleans Saints.

The fact the Bills had Zack Moss as a healthy scratch could signal the Bills are going to make sure that Breida continues to be a key part of this offense. The role moving forward is that Breida will be a change of pace back that can contribute through the air.

Another player who could be on the verge of being on the fantasy football radar is wide receiver Gabriel Davis. The second-year wide receiver has been quiet for most of the season but there have been some trends recently that could indicate he is becoming a bigger part of this offense.

Gabriel Davis playing time and targets growing in this Buffalo Bills offense

Earlier in the season, Gabriel Davis was down on the depth chart behind Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, and Emmanuel Sanders. However, recently Davis’ snap counts have been growing with at least 34% of the snaps in each of the past three weeks with 40% or more in two of those games.

In comparison, Davis broke the 40% snap count in a game in three of the first eight games this season. He also has had at least three or more targets in each of those games after only having three or more targets in two of the first eight games.

The Buffalo Bills have one of the top passing offenses in the NFL so finding a player like Davis at this point in the season, in this offense could help any fantasy football team heading into the end of the season and into the playoffs.

If there is a spot available at the end of the roster for your fantasy football team, Gabriel Davis could be one of the best to add as a speculative add to see if his role continues to grow in this offense.
