While some things will change, one thing that shouldn’t for the Buffalo Bills offense is that Stefon Diggs should see plenty of targets and opportunities. Since joining the Bills in 2020, after Buffalo traded for him with the Minnesota Vikings, he has averaged 165 targets each season.

Ken Dorsey will likely lean on his time playing quarterback at the University of Miami as he would be what is typically referred to as a “game manager”. This is usually viewed as a negative but for Dorsey, with the talent he had around him, his former head coach Butch Davis saw it as a strength to his game:

"The first thing Ken Dorsey learned as quarterback at the University of Miami was to get the ball to players who do special things. “It’s not even Xs and Os,” his college coach Butch Davis said. “It’s, ‘How do you make sure high-profile guys get the ball?’ We had Andre Johnson, Santana Moss, Reggie Wayne, a ton of guys. And he was so smart, and he just made sure those guys were getting the ball.”"

While Josh Allen physically can do more than most quarterbacks in the league, he does a good job choosing when to try and take a game over. More times than not, he is getting the ball to his playmakers, like Stefon Diggs, and putting them in position to make the play.

Ken Dorsey will likely try to translate the way he played at Miami into the offense he wants to run. This means getting the ball to his top players quickly and after Josh Allen that is wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
