Dawson Knox News
Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox was the team's breakout player last season after being taken in the third round in 2019. He became almost an every-snap player and became quarterback Josh Allen's go-to-option in the red zone. Knox and Allen combined for 11 touchdowns in 17 regular season games. Knox had more routes run, targets, catches, yards, first downs and touchdowns than in his previous two seasons combined. His touchdown total probably isn't sustainable, but more big things could be in store in 2022. Travis Kelce had way more chances than Knox, but their air yards per target, reception rate, yards-after-catch average and yards per catch were strikingly similar.

He has nine touchdowns this season, which has been saving his fantasy value lately. However, he could do some serious damage against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 17. A defense that ranks 29th in pass DVOA this season. However, they've done a solid job at stopping tight ends so far. That being said, Knox should be considered a low-end TE1 for this week. It is a plus matchup, but the low volume of targets lately is a little concerning for fantasy managers.
Dawson Knox was an effective weapon for quarterback Josh Allen in the red zone last year, but it was not enough to make him fantasy relevant. He finished as the TE35 in PPR leagues with a mediocre 24 receptions for 288 yards and three touchdowns. He...
