Bills TE Dalton Kincaid worth waiver wire add to fantasy football lineups ahead of Week 8

After the injury to Dawson Knox, Buffalo should use the rookie tight end more in the offense. We break down why Kincaid is a top target off the waiver wire this week.

The Buffalo Bills came up short in their 29-25 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday, but got a productive outing from tight end Dalton Kincaid. The rookie from Utah had his best day as a pro so far and figures to gain an even bigger role in the offense moving forward.

Below, we’ll go over Kincaid’s waiver wire prospects ahead of their Week 8 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night.

Bills TE Dalton Kincaid: Week 8 waiver wire

Kincaid hauled in all eight of his targets for 75 receiving yards in the loss on Sunday. It was his most productive outing of the season and he significantly outpaced regular starter Dawson Knox, who had just one reception for 10 yards. Kincaid was touted for his route running abilities coming out of Utah and we’re finally starting to see it play out in the pros.

Kincaid is rostered in just 37% of fantasy leagues, so he should be readily available on the waiver wire this week. The Bills announced Knox is going to miss the rest of the regular season. That clears the way for Kincaid to get almost all the snaps/targets at tight end. Kincaid is the type of add that could help you win a championship in fantasy football.
