Bills' Dawson Knox: Finds end zone in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox hauled in six of eight targets for 42 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bills' 38-24 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.

Though the Bills ultimately weren't able to keep pace with the high-octane Kansas City offense, Knox did his part to stake Buffalo to an early 9-0 lead. His three-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter was his second score of the postseason, continuing his late-season trend of being a key weapon for quarterback Josh Allen in the red zone. Knox failed to find paydirt through the team's first 10 games of the season -- he missed four contests in that span due to various issues -- before he scored five times in the Bills' final nine games (including playoffs), drawing 12 red-zone looks during that stretch. The Bills are unlikely to add much competition at the position through the draft, free agency or trade market this offseason, so Knox should retain his spot atop the depth chart entering the 2021 campaign.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Quiet Week 17 outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught two of eight targets for 29 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Drops have been a problem for Knox in his two years in the league, but none of the six misfires Sunday fell into that category. While Knox never eclipsed 51 receiving yards in a game this season, he's become the clear No. 1 tight end for the Bills and has at least four targets in each of the past five games. With Cole Beasley (knee) looking iffy for Saturday's playoff game, Knox could be counted on even more in the short-to-mid range passing game.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Posts season-high 51 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox secured three of four targets for 51 yards during Monday night's 38-9 win against the Patriots.

Buffalo dominated through the air during a Week 16 drubbing of the Patriots, with Knox finishing as the team's No. 2 receiver on a night that consisted of 320 passing yards and four passing scores from Josh Allen. Lee Smith hauled in one of the TDs, and star wideout Stefon Diggs the other three, as Knox remains with three scores of his own on the season (all coming since Week 12). It didn't help that he dropped an easy score from Josh Allen that was right in his hands. A regular-season finale against Miami's top-ranked scoring defense will be challenging, especially with the unit having surrendered the eighth-fewest receptions to opposing tight ends on the year.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Snags TD in AFC East-clinching win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught two of four targets for 36 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 48-19 win against the Broncos.

Knox had to exit Buffalo's Week 15 win because of a stinger, though he was capable of returning to the contest while tying a season high in receiving yards. After going scoreless over his first six appearances of the season, the Ole Miss product has proceeded to go on a tear by posting a trio of TDs in his past four games. Eleven targets over the past two outings represent the most in a two-game span over the 24-year-old's career. A Week 16 matchup against New England has the potential to thwart Knox's recent uptick in production, as the Patriots have surrendered an NFL-low one receiving TD to opposing tight ends this season.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox returned to Saturday's game against the Broncos after suffering a stinger in the first half.

Good news for the Bills, as Knox is the only pass-catching tight end in an offense that's been humming on all cylinders lately. We would not be surprised if Knox sees some rest during next week's practices.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Suffers stringer Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Broncos due to a stinger, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Knox suffered a similar injury in the Week 14 win over the Steelers, so this is certainly a concern for him and the Bills. With backup Tyler Kroft inactive again, the Bills will be down to blocker Lee Smith if Knox is unable to return. He did score the Bills' first touchdown of the afternoon, so no matter what the game is not a total loss for his managers.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Second biggest yardage game of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox secured four of seven targets for 34 yards during Sunday's win over the Steelers.

Knox suffered a stinger in the game but returned after a brief absence and should be OK to play in Week 15, even if the Bills take it easy on him in practice this week. With Tyler Kroft being made an inactive once again, Knox ended up being a key part of the game plan and made a few big plays in the win. The second-year tight end still needs to work on ball security, as he also lost a fumble in the contest, but it wouldn't be surprising if this type of workload becomes the standard for Knox down the stretch.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Returns to SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (neck) returned to Sunday's game against the Steelers, Ryan Talbot of NewYorkupstate.com reports.

Knox came back in late in the third quarter after suffering a stinger just after halftime and caught a pass. He'll continue to top Buffalo's depth chart at tight end while healthy.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Suffers stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox (neck) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Knox suffered a stinger early in the third quarter. With Tyler Kroft (coach's decision) inactive, Lee Smith is the only healthy tight end left for the Bills while Knox battles this injury.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Best game of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox caught all four of his targets for 27 yards and a score in Buffalo's win over the 49ers on Monday.

The second-year tight end almost got in a second time but was stopped just short of the goal line, and it's encouraging for his fantasy value that he's starting to be used regularly near the end zone. While Knox still has a long way to go to earn trust -- the 27-yard outing was actually his second-highest output of the season -- teammate Tyler Kroft was inactive once again and Knox has become the clear leader of the Buffalo tight end group. While he's still down in the target pecking order, Knox could continue seeing a fair amount of looks as the Buffalo offense continues to hum.

Bills' Dawson Knox: Makes one catch count
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knox snagged his only target for a two-yard score in Buffalo's 27-17 win over the Chargers on Sunday.

This could have been a much better day for the second-year tight end, as fellow position mate Tyler Kroft was inactive for the contest, while Knox caught his TD on the team's opening drive. However, that was the last time Josh Allen looked his way. Knox became the 12th different Bills player with a TD catch this season, but that in itself tells you a lot about how many weapons the Bills have and how far down the pecking order the tight end position lies. Knox has yet to catch more than two balls in a game this season.

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.
