Josh Allen is looking for new offensive weapons this season to get the Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl.
So far at training camp, rookie Dalton Kincaid has been impressive and electric so far.
Kincaid was drafted in the 1st round of the draft by Buffalo.
He was ranked high among tight ends out of the draft.
The Athletic’s Joe Buscaglia said this after Day 4 of training camp, “He has remained a consistently targeted asset by Allen and the first-team offense throughout, constantly making himself available and completing sizable gains during 11-on-11 work. Kincaid has an excellent feel for the soft spots against zone coverage and has also been a chore to deal with in one-on-one coverage.”
Kincaid will be alongside TE Dawson Knox.
In a recent interview with Pat McAfee, Bills GM Brandon Beane stated that Kincaid could be used best when he is flexed out as a receiver.
This could lead to many 12 personnel packages for Buffalo in 2023.
12 personnel are when a team sends out one running back and two tight ends. Along with 2nd year running back James Cook, these personnel packages could give Allen more options aside from All-Pro and disgruntled wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
Cook in his rookie season a year ago caught 21 receptions for over 150 yards and 1 touchdown out of the backfield. Kincaid, at the University of Utah caught 70 receptions for over 800 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Said Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott of Kincaid, “He’s off to go to good start. We opened the first day with a red zone day and he was productive there. He’s still a rookie, right?”
Kincaid could be the missing piece that the Bills have been looking for.
A reliable Tight End in January is a value for any contending team.
