Dawson Knox Note

It seemed like Knox was on his way to fantasy relevance as 2019 went on, though the signing of Stefon Diggs certainly removed a lot of that appeal. There were just three games Knox totaled more than four targets last year (without Diggs on the roster). That's not great for his projections moving forward, and neither is the matchup with the Jets, who completely shut down tight ends last year. They allowed just 1.50 PPR points per target, which ranked as the second-lowest number behind only the Vikings. The important part that last year's numbers don't show is the loss of Jamal Adams, who is/was one of the best cover safeties in the game, and the Jets traded him away to the Seahawks. That will be a massive change to adjust to and might take some time. Still, there aren't enough targets to go around to start Knox with any confidence.
