5.) Get Dalton Kincaid and Dawson Knox more involved

There is no doubt that the Bills have an issue at the number one wideout option in Stefon Diggs. He has been dominant this season and has been the most targeted receiver in five out of the six games for the Bills.

However, Josh Allen has made it obvious that Diggs is always the first go-to guy which has shown to limit the rest of the offense. When a team has a rookie tight end that they traded up in the first round for, and a $13 million per year tight end on the roster, they are expected to make some sort of impact. That has not been the case with Dalton Kincaid and Dawson Knox.

Knox has yet to reach 100 receiving yards on the season and only has one receiving touchdown. He only has 14 catches off of 25 targets. One factor that has been concerning is that Knox already has four drops on the season, which has been his season high the last three years. With Kincaid, he has 17 catches for 118 yards but still has to find the endzone.

The offense will need to find a way to get one if not both tight ends involved as a third down option, and to keep the clock going in between the numbers.
