Reduced Role Likely On The Way For Dawson Knox

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox likely knows a reduced role is on the way again for him in 2024, although he is a favorite of quarterback Josh Allen's in the locker room, so it remains to be seen how much he'll be on the sidelines in favor of second-year tight end Dalton Kincaid. Allen may need to rely on Kincaid more to pick up a big amount of slack to keep the offense moving with an unproven receiver unit this year. Buffalo moved away from heavy usage of 12 personnel early in 2023 and mostly settled into 11 personnel. If that's the plan again in 2024, it will be interesting to see how they divvy up the snaps between Kincaid and Knox. Either way, unless Kincaid misses time with an injury, it's going to be hard to justify starting Knox outside of two-TE leagues.

Bills, Dawson Knox Agree To Reworked Deal

The Buffalo Bills and tight end Dawson Knox agreed to a reworked contract on Monday that lessens his $14.4 million salary cap hit in 2024, according to a source. Knox is going into Year 2 of a four-year, $52 million contract extension with the Bills. After the team drafted Dalton Kincaid last year, Knox's fantasy value took a huge hit. The 27-year-old former third-round selection in 2019 out of Mississippi caught a career-low 22 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns on 36 targets in 12 regular-season games in 2023. Knox had career-highs in receiving yards (587) and touchdowns (nine) in 2021, but coming anywhere close to those numbers is out the window now as long as Kincaid stays healthy and Knox remains in Buffalo.

Avoid Dawson Knox Against Steelers

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (illness) did not participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness, but he was removed from the injury report on Friday and will be active for Monday's Super Wild Card Weekend game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Knox played second fiddle to impressive rookie Dalton Kincaid throughout the regular season, and that's unlikely to change during the postseason. 2023 was easily the 27-year-old former Pro Bowler's weakest statistical campaign, averaging 1.8 receptions for 15.5 yards (8.5 yards per catch) with two total touchdowns over 12 games. Even with starting wideout Gabe Davis (knee) sidelined on Monday coupled with a cheap $2,900 DraftKings salary, it's not enough to make Knox relevant outside of single-game DFS showdowns as a TD-dependent dart throw. Unless you're searching for a contrarian option, Knox should be avoided.

Dawson Knox Added To Injury Report

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (illness) came down with an illness on Thursday and did not practice with the rest of the team. Knox still has a few more days to get ready for Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, but he could end up with a questionable tag on Friday's final injury report. Since returning from a wrist injury in Week 14, Knox caught seven of his eight targets for 88 yards and one touchdown in five games. He only played over 50 percent of the offensive snaps in one of those five games and will most likely continue to cede playing time to rookie Dalton Kincaid in the playoffs if he's feeling better by Sunday's game. Kincaid is the much better DFS lineup option, especially if receiver Gabe Davis (knee) is unable to play against Pittsburgh.

Dawson Knox Snags Three Catches In Return

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox caught all three of his targets for 36 yards in the team's victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. The veteran missed the previous five games with a wrist injury. In his return, he logged his lowest snap count (47%) of the 2023 season. Dalton Kincaid continued to earn starter-level snaps, targets (8), and catches (5), although Knox outpaced the rookie in yards. Now a part-time player, Knox isn't worth rostering in redraft formats. He won't be on fantasy radars when the Bills host the Dallas Cowboys in Week 15.

Dawson Knox Officially Active Versus Chiefs

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) is officially active for Week 14 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. He had been listed as questionable but was trending in the right direction after being activated from IR on Saturday. Given that Dalton Kincaid has emerged as the Bills' clear No. 1 tight end, Knox can't be trusted in fantasy football.

Dawson Knox Activated From Injured Reserve

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) was activated from the injured reserve on Saturday. This was expectation after Knox was a full participant in practice all week. Knox is expected to make his return to the field for the Week 14 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. He has missed the last five games after having wrist surgery. Knox has 15 receptions for 102 yards and one touchdown this season. It'll be interesting to see how the Bills mix him into the offense alongside Dalton Kincaid. The rookie tight end has been playing above expectations in the absence of Knox. The Bills will likely continue to get the rookie tight end involved, which makes Knox a shaky streaming option right now.

Dawson Knox Questionable To Face Chiefs

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) practiced in full all week long but remains questionable to play against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Knox is still on injured reserve and will need to be activated by 4 p.m. EST Saturday in order to suit up this week. He's expected to be active but can be left on waivers in most leagues given that Dalton Kincaid has emerged as Buffalo's clear No. 1 tight end.

Dawson Knox Has A Chance To Play Sunday

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) has a chance to be activated off Injured Reserve for Sunday's Week 14 showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. Knox has been out since injuring his wrist in Week 7, but he's been a full participant in practices this week and is trending towards being active this weekend. The 27-year-old probably won't be on the field all that much in his first game back, but his return certainly isn't great news for rookie Dalton Kincaid's fantasy managers. Knox had 15 catches on 28 targets for only 102 yards and one touchdown in seven games before his injury, but his return will surely take some valuable targets away from the impressive rookie. For now, Kincaid remains a strong TE1 in fantasy lineups.

Dawson Knox Remains Full Participant On Thursday

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) was able to get through a full practice session on Thursday. This marks back-to-back days that Knox has been able to practice in full capacity. The Bills opened up their 21-day window for Knox to return on Wednesday. Given his progress, there's a chance that Knox suits up against the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend. His return could make for a messy situation with Dalton Kincaid playing extremely well right now. Knox should be considered a low-end TE2 if he plays because he wasn't exactly doing well before the injury.
