2.) Gabriel Davis - Wide Receiver

It has been an up and down career for Davis, a 2020 4th round draft pick for the Bills. He was brought into the offense as a potential extra weapon but then was able to work his way up as the number two option for some time.

As Davis’ career has progressed, he has not played worse, but not better either. His two games that stand out the most in his career include the 2021-22 divisional game against the Kansas City Chiefs and a matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5 of 2022. 

Why would Davis be so high on this list, with Diggs, Knox and Kincaid in the lineup? It comes down to two words; contract year. Most players on a contract year usually have their best season. Davis is heading into the final year of his rookie deal with the Bills so he will be playing for a decent pay day next year in free agency.

Now, will it be with the Bills or somewhere else? This season will determine if Davis earns a second contract with Buffalo, or if he will be finding a new home. In 2022, Davis had his best statistical season with 48 receptions (targeted 93 times), 836 yards, and seven touchdowns.
