The Bills offense, though, has been pretty good too, putting up 35-plus points in each of the past three games. Among the positives has been the team’s leader in touchdown catches, tight end Dawson Knox.
The numbers are there as far as TDs go at least: Knox's four touchdown catches are the second-most in the NFL and tied for the most among tight ends (Bucs' Rob Gronkowski). He is tied with wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley for the most red zone targets (six) on the team and leads the team in red zone receiving yards with 29. The third-year tight end has at least one score in each of the past three games, the first Bills tight end to do that since Charles Clay in 2016. His hot touchdown streak extends to the 2020 postseason, which he finished with two scores, the story pointed out.
On the downside, he's not putting up huge receiving yards (averaging a career-high 36 yards per game), Knox has taken a step forward as both a receiver and a blocker in the running game, an area of his play both Allen and coach Sean McDermott praised after Sunday's 40-0 win over the Texans. If Knox is still on your wire, he may be worth a stash if he continues to emerge or you need a bye-week option.
