WR Gabe Davis has always been viewed as a big play threat in the Josh Allen-led Bills offense, but last season marked a new level of inconsistency for the once-hyped pass Buffalo pass catcher. Davis lived up to his name as a home run hitter, ranking 7th in both ADOT and yards per reception, but failed to produce at a level anywhere near consistent enough to warrant him starting in most fantasy lineups.
Despite garnering 93 targets on the season, Davis brought in just 48 of those en route to a 51.8% catch rate – the lowest catch rate among all 50 receivers with 80 or more targets in 2022. He also produced the highest drop rate of those same 50 receivers at 12.7%, with several concentration drops appearing across multiple weeks of game film.
The Bills did little to address the WR position this offseason, but the addition of Dalton Kincaid in the first round of the draft should not be overlooked. Davis carved out a substantial role in 2022, which is notable, but didn’t do much to inspire confidence that he can succeed with that larger workload. And after coming up well short in a season of high expectations, the bar has been lowered once again – his ADP sits at a palatable WR41, but the weekly inconsistency will leave him as an unappealing target in any format besides best ball.
