Player Outlook
Sweeney signed with the Giants this offseason, and he's expected to be the No. 3 tight end behind Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger. Sweeney has minimal Fantasy value in that role, and he's not worth drafting in any Fantasy leagues. In four seasons in Buffalo, Sweeney has never averaged more than 3.2 Fantasy points per game, which happened in his rookie year of 2019. Barring a surprise with the Giants, it's doubtful he'll make an impact for Fantasy managers in 2023.

  • Giants' Tommy Sweeney: Heads to NFI list

    The Giants placed Sweeney (undisclosed) on the reserve/non-football illness list Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log. Sweeney is set to miss at least the first four games of the regular season, as a result. The depth tight end suffered an undisclosed medical emergency Aug. 23, but coach Brian Daboll said, "he's good" after the event. It remains to be seen when/if New York expects to have Sweeney back on the field this season.

  • Giants' Tommy Sweeney: Still being evaluated

    Sweeney (undisclosed) was back at the Giants' facility Thursday after suffering a medical emergency Wednesday, Bob Brookover of reports. Details of Sweeney's "medical event' are still unknown, and he is still going through some evaluations. However, "he's good," according to head coach Brian Daboll. It still remains unclear how this will affect Sweeney's potential 2023 campaign, but it's certainly good news that he was present the team's facility Thursday.

  • Giants' Tommy Sweeney: Lands with Giants

    The Giants are slated to sign Sweeney, Jordan Raanan of reports. Over the course of three seasons with the Bills, the 2019 seventh-rounder recorded 18 catches for 165 yards and a TD. The addition of the 27-year-old provides the Giants with tight end depth behind top options Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Sitting out again Week 16

    Sweeney (coach's decision) has been deemed inactive for Saturday's game against the Bears. Sweeney will be a healthy scratch for the second straight week. The 27-year-old has not logged a target since Week 6, as Quintin Morris has served as the No. 2 tight end behind Dawson Knox for the majority of the season. Barring injuries to Morris or Knox, it's likely Sweeney will remain inactive for the final two weeks of the regular season as well.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Indirect promotion

    Sweeney's teammate O.J. Howard was released by the Bills on Tuesday. Howard, a 2017 first-rounder for the Buccaneers, never really shined for the Bills this summer while Sweeney took a big step forward, as he's been praised by the coaching staff for weeks. Unless the Bills bring in a veteran, the 2019 seventh-round selection is set to serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Dawson Knox, and Sweeney could get plenty of looks in a high-powered offense should Knox go down with injury.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Finishes preseason strong

    Sweeney caught both of his targets for 36 yards during Friday's preseason loss against the Panthers. Sweeney has been praised in camp by the coaching staff for taking a step up in his summer work. He currently sits third on the tight-end depth chart, but there's some scuttlebutt that O.J. Howard might be a roster cut. If that happens, Sweeney will make the Week 1 roster for sure, and there's a chance he could make it anyway as a third tight end.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Sidelined with injury

    Sweeney (undisclosed) did not participate in Tuesday's training session, Alaina Getzenberg of reports. Sweeney was on the sideline for Tuesday's organized team activity while nursing an undisclosed injury. He enters the season as the third option at tight end behind Dawson Knox and O.J. Howard.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Path to targets gets murkier

    Sweeney appears to be the No. 3 tight end on the depth chart following Buffalo's signing of O.J. Howard this week. Dawson Knox will remain the starter, but Howard has a stronger skillset and more NFL experience than Sweeney, so the latter is now the No. 3 entering offseason work. After catching just 17 balls over his first two NFL seasons, the 2019 seventh-rounder may have some work to do just to make the team.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Will play Sunday

    Sweeney (hip) will play Sunday against the Panthers. Sweeney was able to log a full practice Friday and has been removed from the injury report going into Sunday against the Panthers. Despite being second on the tight end positional depth chart, Sweeney plays a limited role in the Bills offense.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Ruled out for Week 14

    Sweeney (hip) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Alaina Getzenberg of reports. Sweeney will miss his first game of the season due to a hip injury. The third-year tight end has only drawn one target in his last four appearances, so his absence may not have much of an impact on the involvement of Dawson Knox, but the Bills will likely now need to bring at least one of Quintin Morris or Kahale Warring up from the practice squad.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Misses practice with hip issue

    Sweeney didn't participate in Thursday's practice due to a hip injury, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports. Sweeney was previously listed as a limited participant on the Bills' initial Week 14 injury report, so it's unclear if he took a step back in his recovery from the injury a day later or if his absence was a pre-planned maintenance day. In any case, Sweeney's profile in the Buffalo offense has taken a hit since top tight end Dawson Knox returned from a two-game absence Week 10. After playing at least 80 percent of the offensive snaps in both of the games Knox was out while recording five receptions for 40 yards during that time, Sweeney has played fewer than a third of the snaps in the subsequent four contests and has been targeted just once.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Modest production as Knox sub

    Sweeney caught three of four targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 26-11 win over Miami. Sweeney saw 82 percent of the offensive snaps as the No. 1 tight end while starter Dawson Knox heals up from a broken hand. Knox, currently labeled day-to-day by coach Sean McDermott, could return within the next game or two, so Sweeney's window of opportunity may be closing quickly. Even if Knox needs to sit out another week, Sweeney seems like more of a touchdown-dependent option on a team with plenty of other weapons.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: In line to fill in for Knox

    Sweeney is in line for added opportunities Sunday against the Dolphins with Dawson Knox (hand) having been ruled out for the contest. Knox, who has recorded a 21-286-5 stat line through six games, underwent hand surgery during the Bills' bye week and while coach Sean McDermott hasn't provided a timetable for his return, it's plausible that Sweeney will fill in as Buffalo's top tight end beyond Week 8. Though WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis could see added looks while Knox is out, Sweeney -- who has recorded just four catches and one TD this season -- is the player who should see the biggest uptick in production in the meantime, making him an option for those in deeper leagues scrambling for tight end depth due to injury or bye week concerns.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Opportunity may lie ahead

    Sweeney scored his first NFL touchdown on a one-yard catch during Monday's 34- 31 loss to the Titans. Sweeney only saw 11 offensive snaps, but his usage could make a big leap if Dawson Knox (fractured hand) misses games. The Bills are on bye this week and don't currently have a healthy tight end besides Sweeney, though fullback Reggie Gilliam is more of a hybrid player that can serve some tight end duties. Given the big-strike offense Buffalo runs, those in deeper leagues should keep an eye on the situation -- specifically Knox's status -- ahead of the Bills' Week 8 tilt against the Dolphins.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Not playing Saturay

    Sweeney (foot) will not play in Saturday's exhibition game against the Bears, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. Sweeney has been sidelined at practice this last week due to a foot injury sustained in the team's preseason opener agaisnt the Lions. He saw 18 offensive snaps in the contest. He is looking to earn a spot on the Bills' 53-man roster providing depth at tight end.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Misses Sunday's practice

    Sweeney didn't practice Sunday due to an apparent foot injury, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports. Sweeney played 18 offensive snaps in Friday's preseason opener against the Lions and hauled in two of his three targets for 34 yards. However, he apparently suffered an injury and was seen in a walking boot Sunday. The Bills haven't yet announced when Sweeney will be able to return.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Ready to resume career

    Head coach Sean McDermott indicated earlier this week that Sweeney (illness) is back to normal after missing most of last season due to effects from COVID-19, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. "He's off to a great start. He's in a good spot. He's worked his tail off, he's been here most of the offseason," McDermott said. It's been a struggle for the 2019 seventh-rounder out of Boston College, as he caught just eight balls for 114 yards in his rookie season and never saw action in 2020. The Bills have five tight ends with a viable shot of making the roster, but only Dawson Knox seems like a sure bet to make the team. Sweeney could begin 2021 anywhere from No. 2 on the depth chart to being a camp cut.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Won't return this season

    Sweeney (foot) will be sidelined for the rest of the season due to myocarditis, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports. The 25-year-old has been on the PUP list all season with a foot injury and spent a couple weeks on the reserve/COVID-19 list in late October/early November, and he's apparently dealing with heart inflammation stemming from the virus. Sweeney will take it easy to avoid aggravating the issue and could be back next season if all goes well over the next few months.

  • Bills' Tommy Sweeney: Back with team

    The Bills (foot) activated Sweeney off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Sweeney has yet to suit up in game action this season, as he's battled a foot injury and placement on the COVID-19 list. The team is pretty set with Dawson Knox and Tyler Kroft as the top two receiving options at tight end, so if Sweeney does end up playing this season he'll likely only assume a blocking role for the offense.
