Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Dawson Knox was mostly irrelevent in 2019, topping out with a 4/55/0 effort against the tight-end-friendly Browns. In an offense that now includes Stefon Diggs, his target share won't be increasing. Meanwhile the addition of Zack Moss will ensure Josh Allen won't be throwing much in the red zone. There's pretty much no point drafting Knox.Kyle Rudolph is trending in the wrong direction, with Irv Smith heading towards the major tight end role in Minnesota this season. While Rudolph turned 48 targets into 365 yards and 6 TDs, it's hard to see that happening again in 2020. He's a very low upside streamer who may help you in a pinch.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There were some plays that Knox made last year that suggested he could be a fantasy asset in the future, but the Stefon Diggs trade threw a wrench into any increase in projected targets we could give him. There were eight games where Knox had four-plus targets in his rookie season, which is actually quite good, but we can't pretend the Bills are going to become a team that throws the ball 600 times overnight. Knox is someone you might want to stream when the Bills receivers have tough matchups, but even then, it's going to be hard to project more than five targets for the second-year tight end. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
There aren't many pass-catchers in football who are stronger than Dawson Knox. This guy is everything you want your TE to be - fast, strong, and athletic. Now it's up to Josh Allen to get him the football which he didn't do a lot of last year. The Bills WR room is also pretty deep which means Knox will have plenty of competition for targets. He's someone to keep an eye on, but unless you're playing in a deep league, he doesn't need to be drafted,Kyle Rudolph is the definition of a TD dependent TE. Last year he eclipsed 50 receiving yards just three times but still managed to score six times helping him finish as a top-15 TE. I don't expect him to have the same kind of TD luck in 2020 and the emergence of Irv Smith Jr. certainly doesn't help either. Rudolph is a decent streaming option, but doesn't need to be drafted.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
While Knox is incredibly talented, he's unlikely to become much of a factor for fantasy football in this offense. With the addition of Diggs, and their overall low passing volume, it's going to be difficult for Knox to see over 70 targets this season. That's just simply not enough for fantasy and Knox is nothing more than a TE2/TE3 this year.Rudolph doesn't get enough targets to be relevant for fantasy football, but he is continuously valuable on the back of touchdowns. Irv Smith's involvement in this offense could prevent even that from happening this season though. Rudolph is nothing more than a low-end TE2 this year.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Knox had a respectable rookie season, playing nearly 2/3rds of the snaps and seeing 50 targets. He saw plenty of deep targets, ranking seventh in aDOT (9.1) among tight ends who saw at least 50 targets, ahead of Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, and Darren Waller. Unfotunately, he brought in just 28 of those targets, likely due to Josh Allen's inaccuracy downfield. With Stefon Diggs added, there should be fewer targets to go around in Buffalo, so although there are positive signs for Knox, it's unlikely they'll be fantasy-relevant this season.Rudolph scored six touchdowns last season, but overall, it was a disappointing effort from the veteran. He essentially split targets with Irv Smith Jr. (seeing just 48, his lowest since 2014), and had just 39 catches for 367 yards, both well below his usual numbers. Even without Kevin Stefanski, the Vikings are surely going to be a run-first offense once again, which will leave Rudolph searching for targets for the second straight season, well outside of TE1 consideration.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Following the Seth and Payton plan of drafting athletic TEs late that can potentially breakout. Great YAC ability and a prime late round TE target. What's a Payton? He's my co-host. He's not allowed to post on here yet though. Sucker.
