Player Notes
Dec 5 10:00am ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has had a steady role in the offense over the past month, but his usage isn't high enough to inspire confidence for fantasy owners. He has five catches on six targets in his past two games, but has only managed to gain 28 yards total in those two games. The team's passing offense has relied heavily on John Brown and Cole Beasley this year. Knox has shown promising flashes and could be a decent sleeper to target next year, but he can remain on waivers for now.

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox is essentially a touchdown-or-bust tight end for now. He's only scored two touchdowns on the year, so the likelihood of a solid fantasy game for him is very low, especially this week against a strong Cowboys pass defense. Knox has only topped 25 receiving yards on four occasions this year and he's only caught more than two passes in a game three times on the year. He's shown some promise during this rookie campaign of his, but he isn't a solid starting tight end option in fantasy quite yet.

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox was quiet in the team's Week 12 win over the Broncos. Knox caught both of his targets in the game, but went for only 11 yards, his third-lowest yardage output on the year. The Bills went with a run-heavy attack in the game, while Cole Beasley was the prime target for quarterback Josh Allen through the air. Knox is a risky tight end to start going forward. He'll look to bounce back against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox found the end zone in Week 11 for the first time since Week 3. Knox has shown some promise this year, but he still has a lot of work to do in order to become a borderline reliable tight end fantasy option. The Bills face a tough Broncos pass defense this week and Knox will likely be touchdown-or-bust. Considering he's scored just twice this year, the odds are greatly slanted towards bust.

Nov 17 6:00pm ET

In Week 11, Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox found the end zone for the first time since Week 3. He caught two of his three targets for 32 yards against the Dolphins in Week 11. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Tyler Kroft caught his only target for six yards. Knox has only exceeded two receptions in a game once since Week 4 and has only topped 40 receiving yards three times all year. He could be a low-end starting tight end option in deep leagues going forward but he's very risky with a very low floor. His next matchup is at home against the Broncos in Week 12.

Nov 14 2:20pm ET

Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Dawson Knox (knee) was held out of practice on Thursday due to a sore knee, but head coach Sean McDermott expects Knox to return to practice on Friday and be fine for Week 11 against the Dolphins. Knox has shown some potential in his first year in the NFL and he has an excellent matchup in Miami this Sunday, but the youngster is still a low-end, touchdown-dependent TE2 in a Bills offense led by inconsistent quarterback Josh Allen.

From RotoBaller

Nov 14 11:40am ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox had a promising performance in Week 10 against the Browns, catching four of six targets for 55 yards. It was his best game since Week 4 after being held under 25 receiving yards in five straight games. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Tyler Kroft went without a target in the game. Kroft still played 43% of the offensive snaps, compared with 58% for Knox, but it appears relatively clear at this point that Knox is the preferred target in the passing game. Knox has a favorable matchup against the Dolphins this week and if he can get between four and six targets, he could find himself ending up with around 50 yards on the day, making him a potential low-end starting option in deep PPR leagues.

From RotoBaller

Nov 10 10:20pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox recorded 55 yards off of a season-high four catches (six targets) during the loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. This was the rookie's most efficient outing since finishing with three receptions for 58 yards during the Week 4 battle with the Patriots. Nonetheless, with only one touchdown on the year, Knox has little value despite the lack of fantasy depth at his position. He should continue to remain on waivers until he demonstrates that he can produce consistently moving forward, with his next chance at keeping it going coming in Week 11 against the Dolphins in Miami.

Nov 7 9:30am ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox out-snapped fellow tight end Tyler Kroft 47 to 16 in Week 9, which was very encouraging for Knox after Kroft played eight more snaps than him in Week 8. Unfortunately, Knox only saw two targets in the game, catching both of them for 14 yards. Knox has been held under 25 receiving yards in four straight games and would likely need a touchdown in order to deliver a solid fantasy day and that's very difficult to bank on as he's scored just once this year. He can be left on waivers in just about all leagues and isn't worthy of starting in Week 10.

From RotoBaller

Oct 31 11:50am ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox is in a tough place going into Week 9. Veteran tight end Tyler Kroft out-produced him in Week 8, catching two passes for 32 yards on four targets while Knox went catch-less on just one target. As long as Kroft is healthy, Knox is going to see fewer targets than he had seen earlier in the season while Kroft was sidelined. Knox might have a few big plays down the stretch, but they'll be hard to predict. Leave Knox on the waiver wire and look for other options for both short-term and long-term help.

From RotoBaller

Oct 27 7:00pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox saw only one target in Week 8 and failed to reel it in. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Tyler Kroft saw an uptick in activity, receiving four targets and catching two of them for 32 yards. Kroft was signed to be the team's starting tight end in the offseason but had been sidelined with multiple injuries until making his debut in Week 7. Knox is no longer the clear top receiving tight end in the Bills offense and can be left on waivers in all leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 24 12:50pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox played only 52% of the team's offensive snaps in Week 7, a season-low for him. Fellow tight end Tyler Kroft made his Bills debut in the game and despite not seeing a target, Kroft still played 45% of the team's offensive snaps, a bad sign that he and Knox might split work around 50/50 going forward. Knox caught two of his five targets for 22 yards in Week 7. The Bills face a generous Eagles passing defense in Week 8, but it's hard to bank on Knox getting more than four or five targets and we've seen him struggle to do anything with that low of a target share in recent weeks. Avoid starting him if you have another option to consider.

From RotoBaller

Oct 20 5:30pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox caught just two of his five targets for 22 yards in Week 7. The good news for Knox is that Tyler Kroft barely saw the field in the game and didn't receive a target. Kroft was making his Bills' debut after originally being signed to be the team's starting tight end this offseason. He had been sidelined several months with multiple injuries. Knox was third on the team in targets behind John Brown and Cole Beasley, who each had six. Knox is roster-worthy in leagues of 14 teams or deeper and could be worthy of starting in those leagues as a low-end TE1 flyer, but he's yet to show any signs of consistency.

From RotoBaller

Oct 17 2:40pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has had a solid rookie year so far and has 137 receiving yards on 12 targets over his past three games. This week, the Bills have a favorable matchup against the Dolphins. Knox should be involved in the offense, but his degree of involvement is a big question. Tyler Kroft (ankle), who was signed to be the team's starting tight end in the offseason, has returned to practice without limitations and appears slated to make his debut for the team this week. It's unclear how much Kroft will play but he'll certainly take some snaps away from Knox. If you're starting Knox, you're essentially hoping for a touchdown, which is a tough thing to gamble on. Avoid him if you can.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 7:30pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox caught just two of his five targets and managed just 12 yards in Week 5. Knox had shown promise the past two weeks, catching three passes each week while gaining over 50 yards in both games. He's little more than a worst-case scenario starting option in fantasy at this point. Plus, he might have more competition for playing time after the team's Week 6 bye if fellow tight end Tyler Kroft (ankle) returns to action.

From RotoBaller

Oct 3 2:20pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has had two consecutive strong performances, catching a total of six passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. He's averaging 18 yards per reception on the year and looks to be the team's second-best big play producer in the passing game after John Brown at this point. Cole Beasley is still ahead of him in the pecking order, but is averaging just 10.3 yards per reception. In deep leagues, Knox is a potential low-end starter if quarterback Josh Allen (concussion) is able to start the game. If the team has to go with backup Matt Barkley as their Week 5 starter, then everyone in the Bills' passing game should be avoided, Knox included.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 6:00pm ET

Despite a matchup against a tough Patriots Defense, Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox turned in a solid performance in Week 4, catching all three of his targets for 58 yards. Knox was coming off of a breakout game in which he caught three passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. Knox is a worthy add in leagues of 14 teams or larger and he might be trending towards being roster-worthy in more shallow leagues as well. Knox's target share isn't too high and the Bills' passing offense is still very much a work in progress but with tight end being such a shallow position, Knox could potentially be a difference-maker down the line. Make sure to keep an eye on him.

From RotoBaller

Sep 27 9:00am ET

Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Dawson Knox had a breakout game in Week 3, catching three passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. This week, however, he'll be hard-pressed to repeat that success in what's likely to be a low-scoring game against the Patriots. Knox has received four targets each of the past two weeks, which typically doesn't allow for much fantasy production. Knox was able to overcome the low target total in Week 3, but don't expect the same this week. He'll likely finish this week's game with no more than about three catches for 30 yards. Try and find another option for your starting tight end this week.

Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Dawson Knox (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury early in training camp and remained out of action until late this past week when he returned to practice. Knox has an opportunity to earn some solid playing time this year as the team's primary tight end Tyler Kroft has been nursing a broken foot since before the start of training camp. There likely isn't much hope of fantasy production from the Bills' tight end position this year. Kroft would be the most likely producer if he's able to stay healthy, while Knox might be more relevant in another year or two if he can prove himself.

Jul 29 10:50am ET

Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Dawson Knox (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury this weekend and will be out of action for at least a little while. Knox, a third round pick out of Ole Miss this year, began earning some buzz as a potential starting tight end option for the team after they lost Tyler Kroft to a broken foot. Fellow tight end Jason Croom also has a hamstring injury, leaving blocking specialist Lee Smith and rookie seventh round pick Tommy Sweeney as the team's only currently healthy tight ends.
