No. 4: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Bills
The Bills searched far and wide for a Cole Beasley replacement last offseason, even circling back to the veteran pass catcher late in 2022 when their efforts failed. The 5-foot-8 receiver remains on the open market, with all signs pointing to Buffalo moving on for good.
In Beasley’s stead, 2022 fifth-round pick Khalil Shakir figures to challenge for reps in the slot. Former Saint Deonte Harty will throw his hat in the ring too, but the most likely option to lead the team in snaps from the slot is tight end, Dalton Kincaid.
The Bills traded up to land Kincaid in Round 1 of the 2023 NFL Draft. In doing so, Buffalo made it clear as day that the gifted pass catcher would have an immediate role in the offense. You may be thinking, “Tight ends are notoriously slow starters in fantasy football”. And you would not be wrong. However, Kincaid is so much more than a “tight end”.
He boasts some of the best hands I have ever evaluated, showcasing the ability to move the chains and corral the football in traffic. These traits mesh well with perennial MVP Josh Allen and provide balance to the pass-catching corps led by Stefon Diggs. There are many mouths to feed in Buffalo; Dalton Kincaid is HUNGRY.
