Gabe Davis

Gabe Davis had a historic performance to end the 2021 season with over 200 receiving yards and four touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Buffalo Bills didn’t sign any veteran wide receivers during the offseason and made it clear that Davis was going to be the second wide receiver in this offense behind Stefon Diggs.

There was one big concern with Gabe Davis that hopefully could be fixed during the offseason and that were drops and his catch rate. In his first two seasons in the NFL, Davis had a catch rate of only 56% and a drop rate of 6.4% with six drops on 125 targets.

Unfortunately in his first full year as a starter, those numbers got even worse as his catch rate dropped to 51% and his drop rate increased to 9.7% with nine drops on 93 targets.

There were certainly positives for Davis to build on from this past season as he had a career-high in receiving yards with 836 yards and yards per reception at 17.4 yards. However, similar to Spencer Brown the Bills should look to bring in competition to find the best wide receiver to play opposite Stefon Diggs.
