1.) Buffalo Bills

Dawson Knox, Dalton Kincaid, Quintin Morris

The Bills tight end unit is ranked as the best in the division because of the upside and contributions that they have made or are expected to make for the Bills. It may not be a dangerous unit, but it should be a reliable unit entering the 2023 season. 

Dawson Knox has been one of Josh Allen’s go-to weapons, having reached over 500 receiving yards the last two seasons in addition with 15 touchdowns. When the Bills signed Knox to a contract extension last year, he was signed to be a continuous weapon for Allen for the future. 

There was a little bit of confusion as to why the Bills traded up in the 2023 draft to acquire Dalton Kincaid from Utah. With the Bills having two tight ends who will more than likely see the field a good amount, this will provide Allen with two weapons who can open up the middle of the field to move the chains. Kincaid was arguably the best tight end in this year’s draft so if he is utilized properly, the Bills may have found a dynamic playmaker. 

Quintin Morris is more of a camp player but has a legitimate chance at making the final 53-man roster going into week one. In 2022, Morris recorded eight catches for 84 yards and one touchdown. 

The Bills tight end group amongst all of the other tight end groups in the AFC East has already proven to be a valuable contributor, or has more upside than the others.
