Dawson Knox News
Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that the team is "hopeful but not certain" that tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) will be able to return from Injured Reserve after the Week 13 bye and ahead of a Week 14 showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. Knox hasn't played since injuring his wrist in Week 7. With the 27-year-old out, rookie Dalton Kincaid has stepped up and has essentially become the No. 2 target for quarterback Josh Allen behind wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Knox's return would put a dent in Kincaid's overall upside, but Knox's return in Week 14 isn't guaranteed and he could be eased back into the offense as well. For now, Kincaid has become a must-start TE1 in fantasy lineups because of the target volume he's been seeing.
Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said on Monday that he doesn't expect tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) to resume practicing ahead of Week 12's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, per Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com. Knox's 21-day practice window is eligible to be opened this week, after he found his way onto injured reserve in the aftermath of Week 7's 29-25 defeat to the division-rival New England Patriots. The 27-year-old underwent surgery on his right wrist following that outing, paving the way for 2023 first-round rookie Dalton Kincaid's fantasy stock to skyrocket into the TE1 fantasy ranks in his absence. The Bills get a week off after this Sunday's showdown with the Eagles, so it sounds possible at this stage that the team could hold Knox out through the Week 13 bye. There should be at least one more setup for Kincaid as a confident fantasy starter on Sunday.
Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) has been officially placed on the injured reserve. Knox will miss the next four weeks and will require surgery on his injured wrist. Fantasy managers who have Knox rostered will need to look for another option with Knox out until at least Week 12. The expectation is that first-round pick Dalton Kincaid will see increased involvement in the offense. The rookie tight end should be rostered in basically all fantasy formats right now with Knox sidelined.
Let's start with the good news. In 2022, Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox signed a relatively lucrative deal (four-year, $53.6 million) that has him signed through 2025. The bad news is that the Bills drafted Dalton Kincaid (nicknamed Baby Kelce) with the 25th overall pick in the 2023 draft. Kincaid is an excellent receiving TE prospect and will likely increase Knox's role as a blocker. However, before the fantasy community starts freaking out about Kincaid, remember that rookie tight ends...
