Dawson Knox probably was too far below your radar to command much fantasy attention when the season started. Since then, the rookie tight end has emerged as a reliable starting option for the Buffalo Bills. The question for the rest of us is whether or not he deserves a spot in your fantasy lineup this week against the New England Patriots.

Knox had a decent day the last time these two teams squared off, back in Week 4. He caught three passes for 58 yards, one of his better games this season. However, he has not been especially productive recently. He hasn’t found the end zone since Week 11 and hasn’t had more than 50 yards in a game since Week 10.

Fantasy football analysis, Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox

Being the No. 1 tight end in most offenses means a player always has a possibility for a decent day. But precedent matters, it’s something you have to take into consideration when it comes to filling that one spot in your lineup. It’s hard to justify starting Dawson this week, against a tough matchup.

Sit/start recommendation

Sit him.
