Bills TE Dawson Knox had surgery on his broken hand and is expected to miss 3 weeks, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Knox has a Week 7 bye, meaning that he should just miss the next 2 games vs. Miami and Jacksonville and return for Week 10. TE Tommy Sweeney is next up on Buffalo's depth chart but is unlikely to be a fantasy factor. WRs Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley should pick up extra targets with Knox out.

Bills TE Dawson Knox broke a bone in his hand in Monday night's loss to the Titans, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. "Timeline TBD but the hope is he won’t miss much time, especially with the bye," Garafolo adds. Knox owners should plan on him missing some time beyond that Week 7 bye, but we'll continue to look for updates on his timeline for return.

Bills TE Dawson Knox left early in the 4th quarter of Monday night's game at Tennessee with a hand injury. ESPN reported that he hurt the hand before throwing a 2-point conversion pass to Josh Allen, but went through with the play anyway. Knox is questionable to return.

The Bills are releasing TE Jacob Hollister, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. That's not a shocking move vs. the meager 1-year contract Hollister signed and his limited production in Seattle. But Hollister was the biggest addition Buffalo made to a TE corps that disappointed in 2020. So Hollister's release seems like at least a slight vote in favor of Dawson Knox. The incumbent Bills TE is at least interesting as a late-round stash in TE-premium fantasy football drafts.

Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic believes Bills TE Dawson Knox is “quickly speeding away” with the starting job. Free agent addition Jacob Hollister has missed most of training camp with a back injury. Per Buscaglia, Knox has “looked impressive” outside of 1 drop. Perhaps his development is why Buffalo hasn’t made a move for Zach Ertz. Knox, only 24, is currently coming off the board at TE28 in FFPC best balls.

The Bills “aren’t giving up on Dawson Knox,” per Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic. “Dawson, going into Year 3, we have big expectations for him,” GM Brandon Beane said. “It’s a big offseason for him. He’s already told us that he plans to link up with Josh (Allen) out in California, which will be good for those guys to continue to get more reps.” Drops (13 on 94 career targets) have been Knox’s biggest issue thus far. Buffalo has yet to sign an impact free-agent, though, instead adding former Seahawk Jacob Hollister. If the depth chart remains favorable, Knox should have some streaming value in 2021. Just keep in mind that Buffalo ranked 2nd league-wide last year in percentage of 4-WR sets. With Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders and Gabe Davis, the position remains one of strength.

The Bills signed TE Jacob Hollister to a 1-year deal, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Hollister is reuniting with QB Josh Allen, who he played with at Wyoming in 2016, posting a 32-515-7 line. More recently, Hollister emerged as a reliable option for Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, compiling 66 catches for 558 yards and 6 scores over the past 2 seasons. Buffalo has seemingly been disappointed with TE Dawson Knox, so there's a chance Hollister overtakes him as the lead TE.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's AFC Championship vs. the Chiefs. The rookie only got in a limited practice on Friday and will be at less than 100% if he suits up. Davis' absence would open up more snaps for WR Isaiah McKenzie and/or TE Dawson Knox.

Bills WR Dawson Knox (calf) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. Tyler Kroft gets another game as Buffalo’s lead TE but isn’t a fantasy option.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Barring a setback, he should return for Sunday's game against the Raiders. With just 6 targets through 2 outings, though, he's not much of a fantasy option.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams. Tyler Kroft will step in as Buffalo's lead TE but isn't a fantasy option. Knox's absence could mean an extra target or 2 for WRs Stefon Diggs and John Brown.

Bills TE Dawson Knox was knocked out of Sunday's game in Miami with a concussion. We'll track his progress through the protocol this coming week.
