Avoid Dawson Knox Against Steelers

Sunday, January 14, 1:45 AM

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (illness) did not participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness, but he was removed from the injury report on Friday and will be active for Monday's Super Wild Card Weekend game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Knox played second fiddle to impressive rookie Dalton Kincaid throughout the regular season, and that's unlikely to change during the postseason. 2023 was easily the 27-year-old former Pro Bowler's weakest statistical campaign, averaging 1.8 receptions for 15.5 yards (8.5 yards per catch) with two total touchdowns over 12 games. Even with starting wideout Gabe Davis (knee) sidelined on Monday coupled with a cheap $2,900 DraftKings salary, it's not enough to make Knox relevant outside of single-game DFS showdowns as a TD-dependent dart throw. Unless you're searching for a contrarian option, Knox should be avoided.

Jake Ferguson Scores Three Touchdowns In Wild-Card Weekend Loss

Sunday, January 14, 11:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson scored three times in a Wild Card Weekend loss to the Green Bay Packers. Ferguson was targeted 12 times, making 10 catches for 93 yards and scoring three times. His touchdowns came from 1, 7, and 14 yards out, but it wasn't enough for the Cowboys to make it past the first week of the playoffs. Ferguson turned into a high-floor TE1 this season, and barring unexpected changes on the Dallas offense, he should once again fill that role next season.
