TE - BUF
Week 3 Outlook
TE Dawson Knox has entered the concussion protocol.
Knox sustained a concussion in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Dolphins. He hauled in one reception on three targets before exiting. Knox will have to clear the five-step concussion protocol before being able to return to action. Tyler Kroft would be the Bills top TE if Knox is sidelined Week 3.
Bills TE Dawson Knox suffered a concussion in the Bills' Week 2 victory over the Dolphins.
Knox was eventually ruled out for the game. He caught 1-of-3 targets for 38 yards and lost a fumble before exiting.
Dawson Knox totaled 26 yards on two receptions as the Bills beat the Jets 27-17 in Week 1.
Knox saw three targets on the afternoon. Josh Allen was airing it out early and often but just wasn't looking Knox's way. He has big-play potential moving forward but just can't be relied on as a fantasy asset.
According to The Athletic, tight end Dawson Knox is improving as blocker heading into his second season.
Although Knox showed that he could execute at a high level in 2019, there were a few glaring weaknesses to his game. Knox really struggled as a blocker in year one and that seemed to limit his time on the field. According to beat reporters, the Ole Miss product has really improved in both pass protection and run blocking and has been drawing praise from coaches and teammates so far in camp. The 6-4, 254lb tight end has the size and strength needed for the position and improving as a blocker will only further his chances of becoming a three-down threat for the Bills. Buffalo was 21st in passing attempts in 2019 and the addition of Stefon Diggs to the offense makes Knox more of a streaming option at tight end heading into the season.
Dawson Knox caught one of his two targets for 14 yards in the Bills' Wild Card loss to the Texans.
Knox has been used sporadically in his rookie season, but has shown some nice flashes of athleticism and receiving ability. Knox should work himself into a bigger role in 2020 as he heads into his sophomore season.
