Knox caught 28 of 50 targets for 388 yards and two scores during his rookie campaign. Knox was picked in the third round as more of a project type and had been expected to serve as the backup to free-agent signee Tyler Kroft, but Kroft struggled with injuries and Knox ended becoming the starter for much of the season. While the Mississippi product struggled a bit with drops, he also showed a knack for big plays and an ability to rumble for yards after the catch. Kroft is healthy again, but Knox offers more upside and (for now) a better rapport with quarterback Josh Allen, so there's a chance he gets to take the starter's job and run with it in 2020.
Knox (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets. As is running back Devin Singletary, as well as wide receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley, with the Bills resting several key players Sunday due to their playoff seeding being locked in.
Knox caught just one of his four targets for 33 yards during Saturday's loss to the Patriots. Knox caught what looked like a TD on a beautiful throw from Josh Allen, but he was ruled down just outside the goal line, where Allen then threw a short TD pass to left tackle Dion Dawkins of all people. That turned a nice outing for Knox into his usual modest one, as he's now caught exactly one ball in each of the last three games.
Knox caught his only target for 11 yards during Sunday's win over the Steelers. Veteran Tyler Kroft had the big tight end catch, a go-ahead touchdown that in essence vaulted the Bills into the playoffs, while Knox's role was modest all evening. Knox was on the field for 48 percent of the offensive snaps (his lowest since Week 8) to Kroft's 29 percent, but the Bills and their up-and-down offense continue to spread it around too much for the rookie to offer any kind of consistent production.
Knox caught just one of four targets for 37 yards during Sunday's loss to the Ravens. Surprisingly, the 37 yards led the team, which shows just how much the Baltimore defense stifled the Buffalo passing attack all day. Knox dropped one key pass, but made up for it with a doozy of a catch that was pretty much a one-handed snag for big yardage. The rookie continues to have long-term appeal, but the modest yardage was his high in the last four games, while Knox is maintaining a pattern of catching between one and four balls in every game this season, save for a shutout in Week 8.
