Pepper Dalton Kincaid with targets early and often
Dalton Kincaid has been every bit of the hype coming into this season. It took a little while to get him going and it was an injury that sidelined Dawson Knox for several weeks that afforded Kincaid the opportunity. Kincaid has taken that opportunity and made it very difficult for the team to go back to Knox as the number one tight end in this offense when he returns.
Kincaid leads all tight ends in the NFL in catch rate, with an impressive 87.9 percent rate. The scouting report on him coming out of college was best hands in the draft. He may have the best hands in the NFL, if not for Khalil Shakir's 88 percent catch rate, which is tops among all wide receivers. The Philadelphia Eagles have struggled against tight ends this season, allowing 50 receptions, 482 yards, and six touchdowns through ten games this season.
