Tony Gonzalez caught 13 balls for 123 yards and a TD in the Atlanta Falcons 24-17 win over the Washington Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez had a huge day in the Atlanta Falcons 24-17 win over the Washington Redskins. The ageless tight end caught 13 passes for 123 yards and a TD.

Fantasy impact: The 36-year-old tight end shows no signs of slowing down as he put up his best numbers thus far this season. With a touchdown reception shortly before halftime, Gonzalez now has caught TD passes in four of the Falcons' five games this season. His 123 yards against the Redskins marks his highest receiving yardage total since Dec. 23, 2007 when he went for 137 yards against the Detroit Lions as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. It is unlikely that Gonzalez will put up another 120+ yard performance, but he remains a TD threat and a must play when the Falcons host Oakland next week.
