Bills' Dawson Knox: Scores second touchdown of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught two of three targets for 32 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 37-20 win over Miami.

Knox made his mark just before halftime, catching a pass over the middle and slipping a tackle for a 23-yard touchdown. The rookie has been impressive at times this season in averaging 14.0 yards per catch, but probably isn't consistent enough -- even on an offense lacking many other weapons in the passing game -- to count on week to week. Next up is a stingy Denver pass defense.

Bills' Dawson Knox: No injury tag for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (knee) practiced fully Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

As expected, the issue turned out to be a minor one for the rookie, and he should be full-go for this week's contest as the Bills try to maintain the top wild-card spot in the playoff chase. While a finally healthy Tyler Kroft may take away some of Knox's targets, it didn't play out that way last week when Knox posted season highs in receptions (four) and targets (six). Until Kroft starts getting more involved, Knox can be considered the team's top fantasy tight end, albeit in an inconsistent passing offense.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (knee) returned to practice Friday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Some minor knee soreness caused the tight end to sit out Thursday's practice, but Knox's return to the field Friday suggests that he'll be a go Sunday against the Dolphins. The Bills' final injury report of the week figures to either list Knox as questionable for the contest, or clear him fully.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Minor knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox missed practice Thursday due to a sore knee, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Coach Sean McDermott expects the rookie back at practice Friday, though we'll see if that comes into fruition when the team hits the field for its last session prior to Sunday's divisional showdown in Miami. Given that Knox practiced Wednesday and his coach is downplaying the issue, it sounds like there's still a good chance Knox will suit up for Week 11.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Logs 55 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught four of six targets for 55 yards during Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Browns.

Knox tied for second on the team in receptions while finishing third in targets and receiving yards. This was an encouraging performance for the rookie, who had totaled just 48 yards over the last four games. Knox should remain an inconsistent option most weeks but could have opportunities to produce next Sunday against the Dolphins.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Outsnaps Kroft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught both of his targets for 14 yards during Sunday's win over Washington.

Despite the lousy production, one takeaway is that the rookie saw 76 percent of the offensive snaps while Tyler Kroft -- supposedly the starter once he got back to full health and game speed -- only saw 26 percent of the action. Neither tight end did much, however, and Knox has only caught four balls for 36 yards in total in the three games Kroft has played since returning from an ankle injury.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Shut out in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox was targeted just once with no catches during Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

It was the rookie's first career game where he did not have at least one reception, though the end result is perhaps not as surprising as the first glance at the empty line, given that starter Tyler Kroft is back in action and both teams were forced to throw in gusty winds. Knox was a trendy pickup a few weeks ago following a couple of decent games, but sharing time with Kroft is going to make consistent production for either player a tough task, especially when you consider the Bills offer an unpolished passing attack.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Shares role with Kroft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught two balls on five targets for 22 yards during Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Even with starter Tyler Kroft back from an ankle injury, Knox still saw a season-high five targets, though his final output was lacking. The rookie played a modest 52 percent of the offensive snaps, however, which was a season low, while Kroft saw 45 percent and blocker Lee Smith saw 41 percent. While Knox has long-term upside, his 2019 outlook remains muted if he has to share time in an offense that leans toward the run (10th in run percentage this season and fifth in 2018).

Bills' Dawson Knox: Slow Week 5 outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught just two of five targets for 12 yards in Sunday's win at Tennessee.

While Knox saw a season-high 72 percent of the offensive snaps and still doesn't have to compete with starter Tyler Kroft (ankle) for looks, the game flow just didn't go his way in what was a low-scoring battle between two close-to-the-vest teams. Knox has emerged as Josh Allen's third favorite target in the passing game behind John Brown and Cole Beasley, but with a bye on tap and Kroft seemingly set to return at some point, the rookie's production could take a hit in future weeks.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Kroft out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox is set to serve as the Bills' top pass-catching tight end for another game with teammate Tyler Kroft (ankle) ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Titans.

Knox has really been making his mark in Kroft's absence, taking over the top spot on the depth chart and catching three balls each of the last two weeks, including his first NFL touchdown in Week 3. The rookie was on the field for a season-high 65 percent of the offensive plays last week against the Patriots. Expect a similar workload this week with a handful of targets.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Makes most of limited targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught all three of his targets for 58 yards during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Working as the starter in the absence of No. 1 tight end Tyler Kroft (ankle), Knox made a dent in the passing game for a second straight week. Watching the rookie run after the catch, it's easy to see why the Bills plucked a guy with his talent in the third round -- his 18.0 YPC on eight catches is way up there for a tight end. If Kroft (ankle) has to sit for another week or two, Knox becomes a viable sneaky option for those in deeper leagues dealing with bye weeks.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Kroft unlikely for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox's teammate Tyler Kroft (ankle) did not practice again Friday and is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

That will make Knox the starter yet again following a week where he posted a 3-67-1 line, including a huge Shockey-like play where he trucked over a couple of Bengals on the Bills' finale and go-ahead touchdown drive. Keep in mind Knox only has 10 targets through three games, so while his rookie season is progressing nicely, there will still be weeks where he puts up low production. Plus, he could take a back seat to Kroft if the veteran ever gets fully healthy.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Has breakout game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught three of four targets for 67 yards and a touchdown while adding a nine-yard rush in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bengals.

The rookie third-rounder delivered a breakout performance after seeing limited action in his first two games. Knox opened the scoring with a one-yard touchdown catch and got most of his yardage on a 49-yard reception. The promising young tight end will look to build on this performance when the Patriots pay a visit in Week 4, though once starter Tyler Kroft (foot/ankle) returns Knox may see his snap count reduced.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Modest part of plan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox saw the field for 41 offensive snaps during Sunday's win over the Giants, catching just one of four targets for 18 yards.

Knox earned some praise as a blocker on a few key plays, but he made a few rookie mistakes as well. One bright spot is that he saw the field much more than fellow pass-catching tight end Tommy Sweeney (21 snaps), though both players will be pushed further down the pecking order when starter Tyler Kroft returns from his broken foot, which should happen soon.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Quiet pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox was targeted twice in Sunday's win over the Jets, catching one pass for one yard.

Knox played 55 percent of the offensive snaps to Lee Smith's 39 percent and Tommy Sweeney's 33 percent, though Sweeney outproduced him with two catches for 35 yards. Knox had a good summer leading into his first NFL campaign, but a late hamstring injury really set him back. With Tyler Kroft (broken foot) about to re-enter the fray in a week or two, Knox has probably missed his window for fantasy production as a rookie, unless injuries strike the group later in the season.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Meaningful role in debut?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox's teammate Tyler Kroft is inactive for Sunday's opener against the Jets as he continues to recover from a broken foot.

Knox isn't the clear-cut substitute starter given his rookie status and own issues coming back from a recent hamstring injury. Fellow rookie Tommy Sweeney could also see a more important role Sunday with Kroft out, while Lee Smith is really only a glorified blocker. That all said, Knox could see a few looks in the passing game -- not enough to make him a fantasy play just yet, but enough to monitor how he does with the opportunity.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Set to make NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox is in uniform and warming up for Friday's preseason game game against the Lions, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Knox has recovered from a hamstring injury and is set to make his NFL debut. Buffalo is barren at the tight end position behind the injured Tyler Kroft (foot), so the rookie third-rounder could play himself into a big role right away if he impresses early.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Gearing up for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (hamstring) is on track to play in Friday's preseason game against Detroit, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

The Bills want to see how the rookie tight end responds to Wednesday's practice before they make a decision on his status. Knox resumed working out last week and returned to practice Monday. He's competing for snaps against Lee Smith, Jason Croom (hamstring) and fellow rookie Tommy Sweeney, while Tyler Kroft (foot) is in danger of remaining on the PUP list to begin the regular season.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Resumes practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (hamstring) has returned to practice, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Jason Croom (hamstring) was also spotted at Monday's practice, per Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News, while Tyler Kroft (foot) did not see work in the session. Given that Kroft's early season status/workload are still up in the air, there's an opportunity for Knox to see a pass-catching role in the Bills offense out of the gate.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Ramping up workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (hamstring) put in a workout Friday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Knox ran routes Friday and worked with the strength and conditioning staff. The third-year pro has yet to fully practice since suffering a hamstring injury late July, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. The rookie third-round pick could be in line for key snaps when healthy while Tyler Kroft (foot) remains sidelined.
