Scoring streak continues

Knox caught both of his targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-23 win over the Patriots.

Analysis: That makes four straight games with a score for Knox, who rallied a bit to finish with a 48-517-6 line for the season, quite similar to his 49-587-9 line of 2021. Knox will remain a key red-zone option when the Bills begin their playoff march Sunday against the division-rival Dolphins.

Cleared for Week 18 action

Knox (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Analysis: Knox joined quarterback Josh Allen (ankle/elbow) as a limited participant at Thursday's practice, but both players took every rep at Friday's session to remove any lingering doubt about their statuses for the regular-season finale. Though he's noticed some regression in his touchdown count after finding the end zone a career-high nine times in 2021, Knox has more or less matched his receiving output from the previous season. He enters Sunday's game holding season-long averages of 3.3 catches, 36 yards and 4.5 targets per contest, roughly in line with his averages from 2021 (3.3, 39.1 and 4.7).

Limited at Thursday's session

The Bills list Knox (hip) as a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: After being listed a full participant at Wednesday's walk-through practice, Knox took a step back in terms of activity while the Bills reconvened for a more traditional workout Thursday. At this stage, the team hasn't indicated that Knox's hip issue is anything that seriously threatens his status for Sunday's game against the Patriots, but his availability for that contest won't be confirmed until Buffalo releases its final Week 18 injury report Friday.

Ready for Monday

Knox (hip) does not carry an injury designation into Monday's contest against the Bengals.

Analysis: Knox was a full participant in Saturday's practice clearing the way for the talented tight end to suit up in a pivotal AFC battle with high seeding at stake. The 26-year-old has caught a touchdown in each of the last three games after scoring just two through the first 13 weeks of the season.

Logs another limited practice

Knox (hip) remained limited at practice Friday.

Analysis: Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com previously relayed that Knox had downplayed what he described as a "little hip pointer. Nothing major." However, after back-to-back limited listings, the tight end will presumably need to practice fully Saturday in order to avoid approaching Monday night's game against the Bengals with an injury designation.

Limited by hip issue

Knox (hip) was limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: Per Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com,Knox -- who has downplayed what he previously described as a "little hip pointer. Nothing major," sported a red (non-contact) jersey at Thursday's practice. The tight end now has two more chances to increase his practice activity ahead of Monday night's game against the Bengals, but Knox will probably need to practice fully by Saturday in order to avoid a Week 17 injury designation.

Gets into end zone Saturday

Knox secured three of five targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 35-13 win over the Bears on Saturday.

Analysis: Knox tied for the team lead in receptions while finishing second in receiving yards on a modest day for the air attack overall. However, he rewarded fantasy managers with a 13-yard scoring grab with just over a minute remaining, his third in as many contests. Knox's expanded role has come at a critical time of the fantasy season, and he'll next tangle with the tough Bengals defense in a Week 17 road matchup on Monday night, Jan. 2.

Season-high 98 yards

Knox recorded six receptions on eight targets for 98 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 32-29 win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: Knox paced the team in both receptions and yards, and the performance marked only the second time he caught more than five passes in a game this season. He also delivered a season-best 98 yards on the strength of long gains of 45 and 21 yards. Knox also delivered a five-yard touchdown reception early in the fourth quarter, his fourth of the season and second in as many games. While this was a positive performance, Knox entered the contest having racked up only 58 yards across his last three matchups combined.

Finds end zone in Week 14

Knox caught four of seven targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Knox somersaulted into the end zone for a 24-yard touchdown in the final minute of the first half for the game's first points. The tight end finished as Buffalo's leader in targets, catches and receiving yards in addition to scoring the team's only touchdown through the air. This was a nice bounce-back effort for Knox after he was shut out by the Patriots in Week 13. He'll face the Dolphins in Week 15.

Dec 11, 2022 2:56 PM EST

Shut out in Thursday night win

Knox failed to haul in his only target during Thursday's win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Knox has had a disappointing season, but this was the first time he's been shut out completely, and the single target also represents a season low. Knox hasn't seen the end zone since Week 8, as the potent offense continues to focus around other players. Knox is too good of a player to not have his moments before the season closes, but he's also becoming tough to rely upon, as the last two weeks have shown.

Held to two catches by Lions

Knox caught both of his targets for 17 yards in Thursday's 28-25 win over Detroit.

Analysis: After leading the team in catches and receiving yards during Week 11, Knox wasn't nearly as involved four days later. The 26-year-old tight end has flashed talent, but he's having trouble carving out a consistent role in a Bills offense with plenty of other weapons. Knox has topped 50 yards only twice this season while finding the end zone just twice after scoring nine touchdowns in his breakout 2021 campaign.

Paces pass catchers in win

Knox brought in all seven targets for 70 yards in the Bills' 31-23 win over the Browns on Sunday. He also visited the X-ray room briefly but subsequently confirmed he was okay, per Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com.

Analysis: Knox enjoyed his most productive day of the season while pacing the Bills' pass-catching corps in receptions and receiving yards. The third-year tight end has picked up the pace over the last two games with an 11-127 line on 13 targets and will look to keep that momentum in a Week 12 Thanksgiving battle against an inconsistent Lions defense.

Modest production in costly loss

Knox caught four of six targets for 57 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: The 57 yards is actually a season high for Knox, which shows it's been of a disappointment for the fourth-year tight end following last year's 49/587/9 breakout. In eight games played (Knox missed one), he has a modest 24-240-2 line. Among tight ends, Knox's yardage ranks tied for 22nd while his 24 catches rank tied for 20th, all far below where Knox was being drafted ahead of the season.

Nov 14, 2022 11:06 PM EST

Finds end zone in SNF win

Knox caught two of three targets for 10 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Packers.

Analysis: Knox is lagging behind his 49-587-9 line from last season, as he has just 17 catches for 158 yards and two scores though six games. (He missed one contest.) However, he's scored in back-to-back games and there's really no competition behind him for tight end targets, so his production could continue to pick up if teams start to sell out to cover Stefan Diggs with multiple defenders.

Oct 30, 2022 11:20 PM EST

Scores first TD of year

Knox caught all three of his targets for 37 yards and his first touchdown of the season in Sunday's 24-20 win over Kansas City.

Analysis: The tight end returned from a one-game absence to see his usual small target volume, but Knox made his looks count by hauling in the game-winning score on a 14-yard strike from Josh Allen with only 64 seconds left in the game. The tight end has caught at least three passes in each of his last four games, but he'll remain a TD-dependent fantasy option coming out of Buffalo's Week 7 bye.

Oct 16, 2022 6:58 PM EST

Good to go Sunday

Knox (foot/hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Kansas City.

Analysis: Though he never advanced beyond limited participation in practices Wednesday through Friday after sitting out the Week 5 win over the Steelers, Knox showed enough improvement in his recovery from the pair of injuries for the Bills to clear him to play Sunday. Knox should step back into the No. 1 role at tight end in what should be one of the higher-scoring matchups of Week 6, making the 25-year-old a viable lineup option coming off the one-game absence. Through four outings this season, Knox has accrued 12 catches for 111 yards and no touchdowns on 17 targets.

Oct 14, 2022 11:25 AM EST

Still limited at practice

Knox (foot/hamstring) remained limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: Since missing the Bills' Week 5 victory over the Steelers, Knox has logged back-to-back limited practices, which suggests that he could be back in action Sunday against the Chiefs. Friday's final injury report will reveal whether the tight end heads into the weekend with an injury designation or cleared to play against Kansas City.

Oct 13, 2022 12:35 PM EST

Logs limited practice

Knox (foot/hamstring) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Knox, who missed the Bills' Week 5 win over the Steelers, didn't practice last week, so his return to the field Wednesday bodes well for his chances of returning to action Sunday against the Chiefs. In Knox's absence against Pittsburgh, Quintin Morris led Buffalo's TE corps with three catches on five targets for 39 yards.

Oct 12, 2022 12:49 PM EST

Back at practice

Knox (foot/hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Knox was unable to practice last week before being ruled out ahead of Week 5 action. With his return to the field Wednesday, the tight end appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's game against Kansas City, though it remains to be seen what his official practice participation level will be.

Oct 12, 2022 10:28 AM EST

Won't play Week 5

Knox (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Coach Sean McDermott has ruled Knox out for Sunday, which leaves Buffalo's receiving corps short handed. Jamison Crowder (ankle) is set to miss time due to a fracture and Isaiah McKenzie remains in the concussion protocol, while depth receiver Jake Kumerow (ankle) is also sidelined for Sunday's contest against Pittsburgh. For the tight end position, Quintin Morris and Tommy Sweeney will work to fill in for Knox.
