Dalton Kincaid

While Stefon Diggs needs to set the tone, this is also a big game for rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid. The past two weeks, the former first round pick has been very productive and a big part of the offense with 13 receptions, 140 receiving yards and a touchdown during that stretch.

Kincaid is an excellent pass catcher and seems to be gaining the trust from Josh Allen in key moments that he will make the play if thrown his way. The Bills should be able to lean on the rookie to extend drives in key third down situations that keep the offense on the field but more importantly, keeps Joe Burrow off the field.

This week is a favorable matchup for Dalton Kincaid as the Bengals have struggled to defend tight ends this season. They have allowed the second most receiving touchdowns to tight ends this season at four and the ninth most receiving yards with 428 yards.

After Stefon Diggs, it wouldn't be surprising to see Dalton Kincaid finish this game second on the Bills in receptions and receiving yards.
