2023 Fantasy Football Buffalo Bills Preview

by Jon Witt

The Fantasy Football off-season is upon us, and we here at F6P have got your back. Join us in the following weeks as we go through the NFL bringing you team by team fantasy previews. Today's edition: 2023 Fantasy Football Buffalo Bills Preview.

The back-to-back AFC East Champs are back and still loaded at all the skill positions to make another run at the Lombardi trophy. Not only will they be good in real life, but they also will be a team that Fantasy managers will count on to help their Fantasy teams win.

In 2023, the Bills' offense was second in points per game (28.4), second in total yards per game (397.6), and fourth in total points (455). They return the core of their offense in Josh Allen, Gabe Davis , Stefon Diggs, James Cook and added more firepower in first round pick Dalton Kincaid and free agent signings Deonte Harty and Trent Sherfield.

The Bills statistically should remain among the best offenses in the game despite switching offensive coordinators. Ken Dorsey, now has a full year under his belt and returns with a full arsenal at his disposal.

Quarterback

Josh Allen—need I say more?

Regardless of the format of your league, Josh Allen should be in the conversation for one of the first quarterbacks off the board. Allen has had at least 35 passing TDs in each of the last three years and at least six rushing TDs as well.

The Bills did nothing but add weapons for Allen in the offseason, so there is no reason to believe that his numbers will decrease. You could see his carries take a hit with Damien Harris and James Cook in the fold but it is nothing to worry about.

The sole downfall of Allen may end up being his turnovers. He was a tad turnover prone in 2022. However, having the gun-slinger mentality comes with taking chances. You may need to live with the INTs to get the high TD numbers.

Running Backs

In the second round of the 2022 draft, the Bills added a dynamic playmaker in James Cook. He was not used a ton his rookie year, but all signs point to the backfield being his leading into the season.  He skill set is an ideal match for the Bills offense, and he proved that last year when he got a chance to shine.

He's now the top dog in the backfield, and is easily a top-20 running back play this year. Set it and forget it.

Damien Harris will be a change-of-pace, short-yardage, oft-injured, and goal-line threat. James Cook is who matters here.

Wide Receivers

Stefon Diggs is the safest player to own out of this group, obviously. He has been an absolute stud since joining Bills and is showing no signs of slowing down. He has the trust of his quarterback and is one of Allen's favorite targets to throw to. Do not hesitate to pull the trigger on him early in PPR formats.

Let's talk about Gabe Davis. This is the guy out of the wide receiver room that has the biggest potential to take the leap into fantasy stardom. He is the clear cut number two on one of the best passing offense in that game and he can be the vertical threat the Bills want him to be.

With defenses keying in on Diggs and worrying about the legs of Allen, Davis will often times attract one on one coverage. From what we have seen so far from Davis, he is a handful for any one CB to contain.

Harty, Sherfield, and Shakir are all in the same tier. It's too early to tell who will fill the Cole Beasley role and be impactful in the slot. Shakir, similar to Cook above has more value in a dynasty league. Harty and Sherfield, unless one emerges over the other, may both end up being nothing more than bye week fill ins. Harty does have some big play potential as a burner, so he may be worth a flier on.

Tight Ends

Dalton Kincaid is very very intriguing this season. The Bills moved up to draft him and all signs point to them using him early and often.  He is a good route runner with a big catch radius. Kincaid has great hands and does not shy away from contact. The Bills will utilize a lot in the slot, lining him up often times as a WR. I know the knock is that rookie TEs do not perform in year one, but with Josh Allen at the helm, I have confidence that Kincaid will break that mold.

Final Verdict

The Bills offense is going to extremely be fun again. They love to pass the ball all over the field and should produce multiple weekly fantasy starters for your team in any format.

As a whole, they are one of the best offenses in the game, and should put up a ton of points no matter the opponent. Draft everyone you can.

You talk about Allen like last year was his 2021 season, mention WRs no longer on the team, and Howard instead of Kincaid at TE. Figure it out.

Jason, great catch. That is on the editing team. We thought he was done with the post and published it. Jon is editing it as I write this and the update should be posted soon.
