TE - BUF
Week 2 Outlook
Bills tight end Dawson Knox hauled in all four of his targets for 41 yards against the Steelers in Week 1.
Knox showed potential as a red-zone threat last season but isn't worth rostering until he asserts himself as a viable weapon in this offense. The fact that Buffalo cut Jacob Hollister a couple of weeks ago could help Knox's season-long projection and provide him with some job security.
Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox reportedly worked with a vision specialist to improve his pass-catching ability through hand-eye coordination and depth perception training.
Knox played 12 games for the Bills in 2020, turning 44 targets into just 24 receptions for 288 yards and three touchdowns. Currently, Knox has the opportunity to be the Bills' TE1 in the 2021 season but he has acknowledged his need to eliminate dropping touchdowns, an issue that surfaced several times throughout last season. The third-year tight end worked with a vision specialist to improve his hand-eye coordination and depth perception that lies at the foundation of catching passes. Rumors of the Bills showing interest in veteran and former All-Pro TE Zach Ertz have been circulating, to which Knox responded, "No matter who they bring in, whether it's a rookie or All-Pro like Zach, I think it'll be great just to elevate the competition." Knox could wind up being a great streaming tight-end in redraft leagues based on his current ECR at TE28 given the extra work he is putting in to improve as a pass-catcher this offseason.
Per Joe Buscaglia of the Athletic, the Bills are rumored to be interested in bringing a TE in via free agency this offseason.
With Knox entering year-three of his four-year rookie contract, the Bills have been rumored to have interest in potentially adding another TE. The young TE has recorded 52 receptions, 676 yards, and five touchdowns across 27 games in his career.
Bills TE Dawson Knox caught 6-of-8 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Chiefs.
Knox had a solid 2020 campaign but remains very touchdown-dependant for fantasy relevance. If he can manage to take another step in 2021, he may be a steal in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
Dawson Knox caught both of his targets for 18 yards in Saturday's Divisional round win over the Ravens.
This is what Dawson Knox is. He's a TD dependent low-end TE2. He'll get a few looks from Josh Allen, but if he doesn't find pay dirt, fantasy managers will not be happy that they started him.
