2. Bobbly Slowik, Offensive Coordinator, Houston Texans

Has there been a bigger surprise this season than rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud and the Houston Texans' offense? Stroud looks like a veteran, through and through, all while operating an offense without an alpha wide receiver. He is spreading the ball around, getting it to a bunch of different guys and has himself in the thick of the MVP conversation.

Bobby Slowik deserves some credit for Stroud's performance this year and how the offense has operated. To this point on the season, Houston is 6th in yards per game, 2nd in passing and 10th in scoring.

If Slowik came to Buffalo, he'd have much more than a rookie quarterback and a bunch of WR2 options. Giving Slowik a guy like Josh Allen could work wonders for this Bills offense, specifically in the turnover department. Look at Stroud so far, having thrown just two interceptions on the year so far. That's been one of the biggest detriments to this Bills offense: Allen's turnovers.

With a focus on taking care of the ball and spreading it around, Slowik could be the guy to take the Bills' offense back to the top. He comes from the Kyle Shanahan coaching tree, too, which is always a great tree to pick from.
