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 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 WR Cole Beasley, WR John Brown, RB Devin Singletary and TE Dawson Knox are all inactive for today’s game against the Jets. Don’t expect to see much of QB Josh Allen or RB Frank Gore. Top CB Tre’Davious White is also inactive for Buffalo.
Bills TE Dawson Knox (knee) isn’t listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. The rookie is a viable fantasy flier in this weekend’s plus matchup against the Dolphins.
Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s set to make his Bills debut against the Dolphins on Sunday. Kroft’s return dings TE Dawson Knox’s outlook. We’ll see how snaps and targets are divvied between the 2.
Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to make his Bills debut against the Dolphins this weekend. TE Dawson Knox has been impressive so far, but Kroft's return adds risk to the rookie's fantasy outlook.
Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Rookie TE Dawson Knox broke out with a 3-67-1 line last week and should play a significant role again on Sunday. But he remains just a fantasy flier in a tough Week 4 matchup.
Bills TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Jets. He was able to get in 3 limited practices this week, so perhaps Kroft will be ready to make his Bills debut in Week 2. Rookie Dawson Knox figures to serve as Buffalo’s lead pass-catching TE in the opener but isn’t a fantasy option.
The Bills added Ole Miss TE Dawson Knox in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Knox is all projection after totaling just 39 catches across 4 college seasons. The 6'4, 254-pounder blew up his Pro Day, though, clocking a 4.59-second 40 time and earning an 84th percentile SPARQ score. Knox joins Tyler Kroft and Jason Croom in Buffalo's TE room.
