The Bills have placed CB Josh Norman on the COVID list after he tested positive. Buffalo has also placed TE Tyler Kroft, CB Levi Wallace and S Dean Marlowe on the list as close contacts. They won't travel for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. That removes a starting corner (Wallace) and the potential replacement for S Micah Hyde if Hyde turns up inactive. He's questionable after sustaining an ankle injury Thursday that kept him out of Friday's practice. So Buffalo could be facing Arizona down 2 of its top 3 outside CBs and starting a 3rd-stringer at safety.
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) 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 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 (ankle) is out for this weekend’s game against the Bengals. He was all set to return from his broken foot but sprained his ankle in Thursday’s practice. Buffalo reportedly believes he has a shot to play next week.
Bills TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. TE Dawson Knox will again serve as Buffalo’s primary pass-catching TE but isn’t a fantasy option.
Bills TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Giants after a limited week of practice. It’s an upgrade from last week, when he was listed as doubtful. We’ll see if Kroft is ready to make his Bills debut this weekend, but he shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups.
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.
Bills TE Tyler Kroft broke his foot in Monday's OTA session and will undergo surgery, HC Sean McDermott said. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Kroft is expected to be sidelined 3-4 months. That'd have him back right around the start of the season -- although foot injuries come with an elevated risk of setbacks. We'll track Kroft's progress this summer, but he wasn't much of a fantasy option to begin with. Rookie Dawson Knox and Jason Croom are behind Kroft on the depth chart and will now get extended run in August.
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.
The Bills have signed TE Tyler Kroft to a 3-year, $18.75 million deal. It (laughably) makes Kroft the league's 15th highest-paid TE in average annual salary. The 2015 3rd-rounder caught 42 balls and scored 7 TDs back in 2017 but has totaled just 25 grabs and 1 score in his other 37 career games. He tested as a 37th percentile athlete at the 2015 Combine. We were hoping the Bills would give WR-turned-TE Jason Croom a shot to win the lead job, but Kroft's contract makes him the heavy favorite. He remains an unexciting fantasy option.
Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That strengthens the case for TE C.J. Uzomah as a Week 6 spot starter. He played 92% of the offensive snaps last week and ran a route on 28 of QB Andy Dalton’s 32 dropbacks. Pittsburgh has allowed the most receptions, 2nd most yards and 3rd most TDs to TEs.
Bengals TE Tyler Kroft missed Wednesday's practice with the foot injury he suffered last weekend. His absence this Sunday would make TE C.J. Uzomah a safer spot-start play against the Steelers' 31st-ranked TE defense.
Bengals TE Tyler Kroft injured his right foot in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is officially questionable to return. Cincinnati, of course, is already without TE Tyler Eifert. It leaves TE C.J. Uzomah as the clear lead dog.
Bengals TE Tyler Eifert fractured his right ankle in Sunday's win over the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Eifert is expected to have surgery and will miss the rest of the season. C.J. Uzomah already leads Cincinnati TEs in snaps. He and Tyler Kroft will both enter the fantasy radar going forward.
Bengals TE Tyler Eifert apparently doesn't think we need to worry about the troublesome back that has landed him on the camp-opening PUP list. "There is no setback," he told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "I'm feeling good. This is just the route we chose to take." Eifert added that he's "100 percent" certain he'll play in the regular-season opener. This sounds good, but we'll put his chance of starting on time somewhere short of 100%. Still, Eifert's going late enough in fantasy football drafts to be a fine shot worth taking at this point. He'll carry big weekly upside for however many weeks he's available.
Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee, back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. It's possible he's looking at a multi-game absence -- something he's no stranger to. TE Tyler Kroft figures to operate as Cincinnati's lead pass-catching TE in Green Bay but isn't a fantasy option.
Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee, back) remained sidelined on Thursday. At this point, we'd be surprised if he played against the Packers this weekend. That'd leave Tyler Kroft as Cincinnati's lead TE -- a significant downgrade for the struggling Andy Dalton.
