Bills' Dawson Knox: Nothing doing despite larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught two of four targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Cardinals

Knox saw a season-high 70 percent of offensive snaps last weekend while fellow tight end Tyler Kroft was on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but the former wasn't able to parlay that opportunity into much fantasy production. The 2019 third-round pick is having a disappointing sophomore season, as he has yet to score or surpass 36 yards in any of his six appearances. Kroft has already managed to return from the COVID-19 list during Buffalo's bye week, a development that essentially bumps Knox off the fantasy radar.

Bills' Dawson Knox: In line for extra targets?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox's teammate Tyler Kroft has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and won't play in Sunday's game at Arizona.

This pretty much ensures that Knox will be out there for any set that requires a tight end serving as a wide receiver Sunday. Knox has had all sorts of issues this season between a concussion, calf injury and his own positive COVID-19 diagnosis, but if there's ever going to be a week for him to get going, this would be the candidate. Buffalo and Arizona feature two of the league's best offenses to date, so the contest has some shootout potential.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Ready to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

The 23-year-old was considered questionable for Sunday's contest while continuing to battle the calf issue, but he'll be suiting up against Seattle. Knox should work as Buffalo's No. 1 tight end with Tyler Kroft the next man up should he be limited or aggravate the injury.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Questionable for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Though Knox returned from reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, he remained limited in back-to-back practices due to the calf injury that sidelined him back in Week 6. Given that Knox hasn't practiced fully since suffering the injury Oct. 13, the Bills may be hesitant to keep him active in Week 9. If Knox is ultimately sidelined or limited Sunday, Tyler Kroft would likely serve as the Bills' top tight end.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Limited in Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Ten days after testing positive for COVID-19, Knox was cleared to rejoin the Bills for practice after he completed a quarantine period that included two consecutive negative test results. Though Knox no longer resides on the reserve/COVID-19 list, he's apparently still troubled by the calf injury that kept him sidelined for the Bills' Week 6 loss to the Chiefs. The tight end may need to upgrade to full participation in Friday's practice to avoid carrying a designation into Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

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

Knox (calf/illness) returned to practice Thursday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

Knox's presence at practice means he must have cleared COVID-19 protocols after testing positive for the virus prior to Week 7. Before landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Knox sat out the Bills' Week 6 loss to the Chiefs with a calf issue, so his activity in practice will still need to be monitored before his status for Sunday's game against the Seahawks is confirmed. The Bills have received very little tight end production all season, and it's reached a low point with Knox out of the lineup.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Not practicing to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf/illness) isn't practicing Wednesday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Knox remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list, though he'll be eligible for activation once 10 days have passed since his last negative test. The tight end was battling a calf injury at the time of his placement on the list, so he'll have multiple issues to heal up from before he's able to practice again. At this point, Knox looks unlikely to gain clearance for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday after testing positive, the Bills' official site reports.

Knox was already going to miss Sunday's game against the Jets due to his calf injury, so perhaps the bigger issue is that the team's tight end room is almost completely depleted, as fellow tight ends Lee Smith, Tommy Sweeney (currently on PUP list), and practice squad player Nate Becker have been defined to have been in close contact with Knox. They have all been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and cannot take Knox's place in Sunday's game.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Will miss Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) has been declared out for Sunday's game at the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Knox's absence for Week 7 was fully expected after he failed to practice Wednesday through Friday. Tyler Kroft will get a few extra looks in the passing game this weekend, while Knox will set his sights on returning for a big Week 8 contest against the Patriots.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Misses Thursday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) was unable to practice Thursday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Knox was ruled out pretty early ahead of Monday's game against the Chiefs and hasn't been able to practice in any capacity this week. Unless he's able to make a surprise return to practice Friday, expect him to be ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Jets.

October 22, 2020 01:44 PM
Bills' Dawson Knox: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) didn't practice Wednesday.

Knox hasn't practiced since sustaining his calf injury in the Bills' Week 5 loss to the TItans. He'll need to heal up in a hurry to have a chance to suit up Sunday against the Jets. Tyler Kroft is set to serve as Buffalo's top tight end if Knox sits out again.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Out for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Chiefs, the Bills' official site reports.

Knox was never much of an option to play after leaving Tuesday's game against the Titans and not practicing all week. Tyler Kroft is in line for more of a role as the primary receiving tight end this week, though the Bills offer plenty of other weapons in front of any of their tight ends in the passing game.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Another DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) did not practice for the second straight day Friday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

While the Bills' starting tight end has the benefit of an extra day this week given the Monday night matchup, his status is looking very much in doubt at this stage. Tyler Kroft isn't a bad pickup in deeper formats if Knox does get officially ruled out.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (calf) won't practice Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Knox was forced out of this past Tuesday's loss to the Titans, and his non-participation in Thursday's jog-through suggests that he's not a lock to play Monday against the Chiefs. If he's out or limited Week 6, Tyler Kroft would be in line to see added pass-catching opportunities versus Kansas City.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Injures calf Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox was forced out of Tuesday's game versus the Titans with a calf injury.

Knox left the game in the second half after catching one of three targets for 15 yards. Tyler Kroft should handle a hefty workload the rest of the game since he's the Bills' only remaining tight end.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Low production in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught two of three targets for 16 yards during Sunday's win in Las Vegas.

Knox only played 48 percent of the offensive snaps after missing Week 3 with a concussion. Backup Tyler Kroft was on the field for 33 percent of those snaps and was also targeted three times, hauling in just one for 12 yards. Knox remains the starter and is the more talented player, but with Buffalo's wide receivers playing so well -- not to mention running back Devin Singletary's involvement in the passing game -- the tight end could be a hit-or-miss option for much of the season.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Seemingly over concussion problem
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (concussion) practiced fully for the second straight day Thursday.

Knox missed last week's game against the Rams, but he looks like a good bet to resume his starting role this week against the Raiders. It's at least worth noting that Tyler Kroft caught two TD passes in Knox's absence in Week 3, so while Knox is still the starter and more athletic player, it may not be that easy for the Bills to take Kroft completely out of the game plan right away.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Back to work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (concussion) is listed as a full participant for Wednesday's practice, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Though Knox looks like he'll take all the reps in Wednesday's practice, he hasn't necessarily cleared the NFL's concussion protocol just yet. That said, the fact that he's beginning the week on the field is a good sign with regard to his chances of being available in Sunday's game against the Raiders. Even if Knox gets the green light to play this weekend, he may have to fight to earn some looks in the passing game after Buffalo's other tight ends combined for three touchdown receptions from quarterback Josh Allen in the Week 3 win over the Rams.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The 23-year-old suffered the concussion during last Sunday's win over the Dolphins and has been unable to practice this week. Knox remains in the concussion protocol and will need to fully clear it before returning to game action. Tyler Kroft is without a catch through two games this season but is likely to start at tight end for the Bills in Week 3.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (concussion) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Knox remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and hasn't been on the field for either of the Bills' first two practices of Week 3. Unless he's cleared to take some contact at practice Friday, Knox currently looks to be trending toward an absence in Sunday's game against the Rams. Tyler Kroft, who played 51 percent of the offensive snaps in the Week 2 win over Miami without drawing a target, would be in line to start at tight end Sunday if Knox is inactive.
