|Fantasy managers have been patiently waiting on a breakout season from Dawson Knox, but aside from his impressive nine-touchdown performance in 2021, we just haven't seen enough from him to make him a weekly must-start even at a weak tight end position. Not only have fantasy managers mostly moved on from him, but the Bills also made it clear that they're looking for more from the position when they drafted another tight end, Dalton Kincaid, in the first round of this year's NFL Draft.
The Bills plan to use both players, which will likely result in a fantasy dud of a situation, but we've seen situations like this happen plenty of times throughout the years and it's almost always true that the rookie tight end takes a back seat in his first season while the somewhat-productive veteran sees most of the work in an offense.
The long-term play is probably Kincaid, but for this season, if you absolutely have to bet on a Bills tight end, Knox is still the better bet. He's been disappointing, but he's still managed to score 15 touchdowns over the past two seasons, which is slightly more than one score for every two games he's played. The tight end position is bad enough throughout the league that we're mostly hoping for 50 yards and touchdowns out of the vast majority of starters, so Knox is capable of delivering that from time to time. Still, he should see enough competition from Kincaid that it'll be tough to justify drafting him, let alone starting him on a weekly basis.
