Wide Receivers

Stefon Diggs

It was another excellent season for the Buffalo Bills' number one wide receiver as he had 108 receptions on 154 targets for 1,429 receiving yards and 11 receiving touchdowns. He is set to be back for the 2023 season and once again is clearly the top receiving target in this offense.

However, the Buffalo Bills did add Dalton Kincaid in the NFL Draft with the only notable change being the release of Isaiah McKenzie, who had only 65 targets last season. While Diggs is still the primary receiver for Josh Allen, this could be a situation where the workload decreases for the wide receiver, who has had at least 150 targets every season in Buffalo.

There is a scenario where the targets could decrease to be somewhere in the 120 range but Stefon Diggs is able to do more with the targets he gets. The addition of Kincaid, along with an explosive back like James Cook, has the chance to open up more of the field for Stefon Diggs and create more winnable matchups.

If Diggs is able to have his catch rate bounce back to 76%, which is where it was his first year in Buffalo, he could still catch 90+ balls and probably finish around 1,200 receiving yards. While the stock might be slightly down, he is still very much a WR1 in fantasy football.

Stock: Down

Gabe Davis

One of the big winners this offseason for the Buffalo Bills in terms of fantasy football has to be Gabe Davis. The former fourth round pick was one of the more popular picks this time last year with him stepping into a starting role opposite Stefon Diggs.

The expectation was the volume would be there and the production would follow. The volume was certainly there as he finished with 93 targets but the production wasn't as high as many expected due to a low catch rate below 50%. He finished the season with only 48 receptions, 867 receiving yards, and seven receiving touchdowns.

However, he has another chance to breakout as the Buffalo Bills did not add any competition for Davis by either signing a free agent, like Odell Beckham Jr., drafting a wide receiver early in the NFL Draft or trading for DeAndre Hopkins.

Last year, Gabe Davis jumped up draft boards because the belief was he was set to break out. There is very possibly a scenario where people will shy away from drafting him and he becomes a great value in drafts. He is a player that should have his stock way up for this coming season.

Stock: Up
