Dawson Knox News
Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (hand) is expected to miss around three weeks after he had surgery to fix a broken hand that he suffered in the Week 6 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Monday night. Buffalo is on their bye in Week 7, but Knox could miss the following two games after that, depending on how he heals. There was another fracture in his hand that doctors didn't initially see on X-rays. As of now, Knox could miss Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins and Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars before returning in Week 10 against the New York Jets. It's a tough break for the 24-year-old and his fantasy managers, as he was in the midst of a breakout season with five touchdowns in six games. He should be stashed everywhere while he's out. In the meantime, Tommy Sweeney, who caught a TD on Monday night, will be the next man up and could have some streaming appeal in the coming weeks.
Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (hand) underwent successful surgery to repair a broken bone in his hand. According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, Knox will be out "a few weeks." He suffered a broken bone in his hand during Monday's 34-31 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The Bills have a bye in Week 7, but Buffalo didn't offer a specific timeline when Knox will return. The 24-year-old is having a terrific 2021 campaign, hauling in 21-of-27 targets for 286 yards and five touchdowns over six games. Knox averages 9.8 air yards per target, sixth among all tight ends this season. Tommy Sweeney would be the Bills' primary tight end if Knox were to miss any games.
Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (hand) suffered a broken bone in his hand on Monday night, but the hope is that he won't miss significant time with the team's Week 7 bye ahead. Knox was able to throw a 2-point conversion to Josh Allen after suffering the injury and had a rushing touchdown called back due to a holding penalty. The 24-year-old has solidified himself as a set-and-forget TE1 through the first six games of the season and should be slotted back into lineups immediately after he is cleared to return. If he is to miss a couple of games, Tommy Sweeney would slot in as the TE1 and could have some streaming appeal. Sweeney caught a touchdown on Monday night and could see some more looks in the red zone with Knox out of the lineup.
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...
