Some wide receivers just have a knack for finding the end zone. Even if a player is not a team’s No. 1 option, in fact, being a red zone threat still means a lot.

Former UCF wide receiver Gabriel Davis was a big-time player in Orlando. He’s trending in that direction while in Buffalo as well.

Led by NFL star wide receiver Stefon Diggs with 82 receptions for 1,007 yards and eight touchdowns, the rest of the Bills receiver corps is very balanced, Davis included.

He’s grabbed 29 receptions for 470 yards and six touchdowns. Most notably, Davis is now a preferred target. After catching five passes in each of his last two games at Tampa Bay and home against Carolina, there’s obviously a trust between him and star quarterback Josh Allen. He has a chance to climb the team’s statistical leaders during the final two games of the season.

Going into the fifteenth game of the regular season, Davis is fifth on the team in receptions, fifth in yards, leads the Bills in average yards per catch, and third in touchdowns. This season has built off a strong rookie campaign.

In 2020, Davis produced 35 receptions for 599 yards and seven touchdowns. With back-to-back seasons as a valuable player that finds the end zone, Davis could be headed for a great opportunity in the free agent market once his rookie contract concludes.

The Bills sit at 8-6 and currently reside as the AFC’s seventh seed in the playoffs and would play at the Patriots if the playoffs actually began this next weekend.
