Player Outlook
As long as Dalton Kincaid stays healthy, we expect Knox to be an afterthought in Fantasy Football this season. As such, we're not rostering him in the majority of Fantasy leagues. But Knox does have 17 touchdowns in his last 42 games and is a favorite of Allen's, and the Bills are short on experienced pass catchers. It's possible Knox is a thorn in Kincaid's side in the red zone, if nothing more. If Kincaid misses time, be ready to pounce on Knox as one of the best weekly streamers, maybe more.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Agrees to restructure contract

    Knox and the Bills have agreed to a restructured contract that lowers his scheduled $14.4 million cap hit for 2024, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. The tight end is entering the second season of a four-year, $52 million extension that guarantees most of his money through 2024 but none thereafter. It's possible this agreement changes that, but if not, Knox's future with the team could come into question next offseason. His fantasy value has taken a big hit since the Bills drafted fellow tight end Dalton Kincaid in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Disappointing fifth season

    Knox finished the 2023 regular season with 22 catches for 186 yards and two touchdowns over 12 games. An injured wrist and subsequent surgery caused Knox to miss Weeks 8-12, and by that point, rookie phenom Dalton Kincaid was well on his way to usurping the No. 1 tight end spot. With Kincaid finishing with a 73-673-2 line and having three more years on his contract, Knox seems relegated to a No. 2 role entering next season. Knox is also a decent blocker, so while he should maintain an important role in the offense, it would take an injury to Kincaid for the former to have any meaningful value next season, even in a Josh Allen-led attack.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Ready to face Steelers

    Knox (illness) doesn't carry a designation ahead of Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers. An illness sidelined Knox for Thursday's practice, but the tight end's return to a full session Friday sets the stage for him to be available for Buffalo's playoff opener. With wideout Gabe Davis (knee) ruled out for the contest, Knox will have a chance to make his mark Sunday alongside fellow TE Dalton Kincaid and top WR Stefon Diggs, especially if inclement weather at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, according to Patrick Warren of the team's official site, results in a game plan that leans on the run and a less aggressive passing attack.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Back at practice

    Knox (illness) returned to practice Friday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports. An illness kept Knox from practicing Thursday, but the tight end's return to the field a day later has him trending toward being available for Sunday's playoff opener against the Steelers. The Bills' final injury report of the week will reveal whether Knox heads into the weekend with a designation or fully cleared for action.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Misses practice with illness

    Knox isn't participating in Thursday's practice due to an illness, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports. Knox's ailment apparently surfaced at some point after Wednesday's practice, as the veteran tight end didn't appear on the Bills' initial weekly injury report released a day earlier. Assuming he's able to make a quick recovery from the illness and gets back on the field for Friday's practice, Knox should still be in good position to play in Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers. After returning from injured reserve following the Bills' Week 13 bye, Knox suited up for each of the team's final five regular-season contests but played fewer than half of the offensive snaps in four of those games while rookie Dalton Kincaid surpassed him in the pecking order at tight end.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Takes back seat to Kincaid

    Knox played 29 offensive snaps but wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 27-21 win over the Patriots. Knox is still getting on the field with regularity, playing between 43 percent and 63 percent of the offensive snaps since returning from a wrist injury in Week 14. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Dalton Kincaid led the team with 87 yards on four catches, further cementing himself as the better receiving option among the two. As for Knox, he has only one touchdown catch on the season and hasn't exceeded 36 receiving yards in any of his 11 games played, leaving him as a deep option at best among fantasy tight ends.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Modest production since return

    Knox caught both of his targets for 26 yards in Buffalo's 24-22 win over the Chargers on Saturday. Knox was on the field for 46 percent of the offensive snaps compared to 40 percent for rookie teammate Dalton Kincaid, who also was targeted twice but caught just one ball for seven yards. With every game crucial for the Bills here on out and both tight ends healthy, it's becoming clear this is going to be a timeshare depending on the game situation and offensive formation. The offense is clicking, but there's also plenty of talent, and it's become tough to trust anyone on a weekly basis outside of Josh Allen, James Cook and Stefon Diggs, and even Diggs, the star, has struggled lately. Knox at least looks healthy after returning from a wrist injury three weeks ago, but he's totaled just five catches for 62 yards over that three-game span.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Not targeted in win

    Knox failed to draw a single target in Sunday's 31-10 win over the Cowboys. Knox played 42 of the Bills' 64 offensive snaps, while rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid (shoulder) was on the field for 33 snaps. Neither tight end was able to record a reception in the contest, though Kincaid did see two targets out of Josh Allen's 15 passing attempts. If both Knox and Kincaid are healthy enough to play in Buffalo's Week 16 game against the Chargers on Saturday, they could limit one another's overall ceiling, though Kincaid profiles as the more intriguing fantasy option of the two.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Week 15 Waiver Priority List

    Knox could start for the Bills in Week 15 against Dallas with Dalton Kincaid (shoulder) hurt, and that would make Knox a streaming option in deeper leagues. Knox returned from his five-game absence with a wrist injury in Week 14 at Kansas City and caught three passes for 36 yards on three targets. It's not an easy matchup against the Cowboys, but in a potentially high-scoring game, Knox could be a decent flier if Kincaid can't play.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Three grabs in return

    Knox caught all three of his targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over Kansas City. Rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid (shoulder) caught five passes on eight targets on the day, but Knox produces more yardage with his grabs in his first game action since Week 7. Kincaid left the game late in the fourth quarter, and the severity of his injury isn't yet clear, so while Knox had a modest role Sunday in his return from wrist surgery, he could be a bigger factor in Week 15 against the Cowboys.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Returning to action in Week 14

    Knox (wrist) is listed as active Sunday at Kansas City. Since the Bills designated Knox for return from injured reserve Wednesday, he didn't have any practice restrictions but still entered the weekend as questionable for Sunday's game. With his status now confirmed for Week 14 action, he'll be making his first appearance since undergoing wrist surgery following a Week 7 loss at New England. Knox wasn't particularly productive before going on IR, hauling in 15 of 28 targets for 102 yards and one touchdown in seven appearances, so he may play second fiddle to rookie TE Dalton Kincaid as a pass catcher due to the latter's cumulative 56-474-2 line on 64 targets so far this season.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Activated off IR

    Knox (wrist) was activated off injured reserve Saturday. He still remains questionable for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs. Knox didn't need to be activated off injured reserve just yet, so presumably the burly tight end will play Sunday, but the Bills have yet to confirm his game-time status. It'll be interesting to see the playing-time splits between Knox and dynamic rookie Dalton Kincaid, who blossomed into one of the team's top targets in the absence of multi-year starter.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Questionable, but likely to play

    Knox (wrist) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Knox will need to be activated from injured reserve before Saturday at 4 p.m. ET in order to be eligible to play Sunday, but head coach Sean McDermott said earlier Friday that the tight end has a good chance of returning to action. He logged a third consecutive full practice Friday, putting him on a path to end his five-game absence prior to the Bills' Week 13 bye. If available Sunday, however, Knox may have to settle for a smaller role than he held prior to undergoing wrist surgery. Rookie Dalton Kincaid has produced a 31-281-2 receiving line over the Bills' last five games to make a case for a greater share of the snaps at tight end.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Likely to play, barring setback

    Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Knox (wrist) has a "good chance" to be activated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game in Kansas City, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports. Knox has been practicing without limitations since he was designated for return from injured reserve Wednesday, a transaction that opened a 21-day window for the tight end to be evaluated in practice. Assuming he checks out fine following another full practice Friday, Knox will likely be officially reinstated from IR on Saturday. Before missing the Bills' last five games while recovering from right wrist surgery, Knox produced a 15-102-1 receiving line on 28 targets through the first seven weeks of the season.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Cleared to practice

    The Bills designated Knox (wrist) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Knox missed five games (Weeks 8 through 12) while recovering from right wrist surgery and is now ready to practice following the Bills' Week 13 bye. Per Katherine Fitzgerald of The Buffalo News, head coach Sean McDermott expressed uncertainty that Knox will be ready to play Sunday in Kansas City, but the tight end at least stands a good chance to suit up Week 15 or 16. Rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid emerged as a reliable fantasy starter in Knox's absence the past month and a half, though No. 3 wide receiver was actually the biggest winner in terms of added playing time, as the Bills pivoted to far fewer multi-tight end formations and implemented more three-wide looks.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Week 14 return possible

    Coach Sean McDermott noted Friday that the Bills are "hopeful but not certain" that Knox (wrist) will be able to return to action after the Bills' Week 13 bye, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports. Knox, who remains on IR, last suited up in Week 7, but it's possible that he could return to the mix as soon as the Bills' Dec. 10 contest against the Chiefs. While that's hardly a lock to happen, it does appear as though the tight end will be back before the end of the season. In the meantime, Dalton Kincaid will remain the team's top TE option.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Not expected back in Week 12

    Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Monday that he doesn't expect Knox (wrist) to resume practicing this week ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports. Knox is eligible to rejoin the Bills for practice after missing the requisite four games since being placed on injured reserve Oct. 26, but his surgically repaired right wrist looks as though it still requires more time to heal. The Bills are on bye Week 13, so the team may be incentivized to wait until Week 14 before entertaining the possibility of integrating Knox into practices. While Knox has been out for the past four weeks, rookie first-round pick Dalton Kincaid has taken on a higher volume of the snaps at tight end and has emerged as arguably the top option in the Buffalo passing attack after wideout Stefon Diggs. In four games sans Knox, Kincaid has turned in a 26-243-2 line on 31 targets.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Goes on IR

    The Bills placed Knox (wrist) on injured reserve Thursday. Including Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, Knox will be unavailable for at least the Bills' next four contests after undergoing surgery earlier this week to address a wrist injury that he had been dealing with since the team's Oct. 8 loss to the Jaguars. While Knox is sidelined, rookie first-rounder Dalton Kincaid should see an expanded profile on offense as the Bills' clear No. 1 tight end. Knox is eligible to resume practicing Week 12 and could be available to play in the Bills' game against the Eagles on Nov. 26, depending on how quickly his wrist heals.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Likely bound for IR

    Knox, who underwent wrist surgery earlier this week, is expected to be placed on injured reserve, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Bills have already ruled Knox out for Thursday's matchup with the Buccaneers, but if he's officially moved to IR before the Week 8 game, the tight end would miss an additional three contests beyond that. In Knox's looming absence, rookie first-round pick Dalton Kincaid should see expanded opportunities in the coming weeks, with Quintin Morris likely to settle in as the No. 2 tight end once he returns from an ankle injury that will keep him out Thursday.

  • Bills' Dawson Knox: Officially out for Week 8

    Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that Knox (wrist) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports. Knox's absence for the Week 8 game comes as little surprise, with McDermott confirming that the tight end underwent surgery on his right wrist Tuesday and is "recovering at the moment," per Getzenberg. With Quintin Morris (ankle) also out for Thursday, Dalton Kincaid is currently Buffalo's only healthy tight end on the active roster, though Joel Wilson is available to come up off the practice squad. The next chance for Knox to take the field will come Nov. 5 versus the Bengals, but it's unclear if he'll be fully cleared from his wrist procedure by then.
