News: 6 days agoKnox secured one of his two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 37-3 win over the Commanders.
Spin: Despite the Bills winning in a blowout over the Commanders, Knox wasn't a significant part of the offensive game plan Sunday. The 26-year-old and fellow tight end Dalton Kincaid both saw two targets in the contest, yet Knox saw the field slightly more, handling 41 snaps to Kincaid's 35 snaps. Going forward, Knox's fantasy utility for most weeks looks as though it'll hinge on him finding the end zone, as his usage in short areas of the field along with the timeshare with Kincaid limit his ability to rack up both receptions and yardage.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Knox has yet to finish a season better than 16th in targets, 17th in receptions or 14th in yards among tight ends, but he has managed top-13 showings in fantasy PPG each of the past two seasons thanks to a barrage of TDs. Working in Buffalo's high-scoring offense, Knox sits third at the position in TDs (15) and second in end zone targets (16) over the past two seasons. The 26-year-old averaged a hair under five targets per game during that span, but that usage may dip a bit after the Bills spent their 2023 first-round pick on Dalton Kincaid. Knox will catch the occassional TD, but he won't have the volume to support TE1 production. He's barely worth late-round consideration.
