TE Dawson Knox was on the field but in a red non-contact jersey. Katherine followed up with, "Dawson Knox left Saturday's game for a bit after landing hard on a catch the first play of Bills' opening drive. He came back and played 75% of the snaps on offense. After the game, he said 'just landed on it -- a little hip pointer, nothing major.'"
Unless we get news of Knox missing Friday's practice it would seem we have nothing to worry about in fantasy land. He has gone 13-177-3 over the last three games and is a TE1 in what could be an explosive offensive game against the Bengals on Monday Night Football.
BUF TE Dawson Knox - 2023 Fantasy Football Outlook
Dawson Knox had a similar 2022 to 2021 except for three less touchdowns. He has become a consistent target for Josh Allen and established himself as one of the more reliable tight ends in the league. He is in the second year of a four year deal so the Bills have invested in him.
After two solid seasons, the Bills went out and drafted a pass-catching specialist in Dalton Kincaid in the first round of the 2023 Draft. Of course this will affect Knox's numbers. He probably will have trouble equaling his numbers from the last two seasons.
2023 Bottom Line
Yes, people are drafting Kincaid before Knox, but this is a mistake. These two should split production which means Knox still has value. Tight ends usually take some time to turn into a Travis Kelce or George Kittle, which could be Kincaid's future. The numbers will be pretty close and you can get Knox two rounds later in the draft. But he shouldn't be your No. 1 tight end this season.
