Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez says he remains 95 percent sure he'll retire after this season. We break down the fantasy implications.
Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is still heavily leaning toward retirement at the end of the season. Gonzalez said (via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution) that he keeps telling everyone he's "95 percent sure" he's going to walk away from football when the season is over.
Gonzalez needs four more catches to record a 15th straight season with at least 50. He has had at least four catches in every game but one this season heading into Sunday night's game with the Dallas Cowboys.
Fantasy Impact: If Gonzalez does retire, fantasy owners will be sorry to see him go. He has been a consistent fantasy force at tight end for years and his recent play with Matt Ryan and the Falcons has put him near the top of the rankings again this year.
Gonzalez remains a must-start fantasy option at tight end every week. Those who have him in keeper and dynasty formats will just have to hope he sticks around for another season.
