The Buffalo Bills need to transition from Dawson Knox to Dalton Kincaid

I've always been a fan of Dawson Knox but let's be honest. He's not earned that hefty contract so far and it's time to see what Dalton Kincaid could do as the lead tight end in this offense. I realize that Knox is the better run-blocker at this point in their careers, but Kincaid offers much more playmaking capabilities in the passing game than what Knox brings.

Through the first six games of the season, Knox has been targeted 24 times but has only 14 receptions. He's normally solid in the red zone too but has only one touchdown on the year. He also hasn't done much with those 14 catches, producing only 92 yards. When targeted, Allen has a paltry QB rating of 63.2. Knox has been credited with three drops as well.

With Kincaid, he's already shown the soft hands that got him drafted in the first round. He's been targeted 18 times and caught 17 of them, with zero drops. Allen's QB rating when he targets Kincaid is a solid 94.0. Kincaid also has more yards (118) than his counterpart, Knox. Come on Buffalo, it's time to unleash Kincaid.
