Tony Gonzalez stays quiet in fantasy against Cowboys

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Tony Gonzalez didn't see a ton of action in the receiving game on Sunday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tony Gonzalez only caught four passes for 53 yards in Week 9 against the Cowboys. He was targeted five times on the night while taking a backseat to Roddy White and Julio Jones.

Dallas' pass rush continued to create problems for the Falcons offensive line, so Gonzalez was forced to block more often than usual.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez still sits just one touchdown away from 100 total all-time. It's going to happen at some point this season, but it will have to come against a team with a weaker pass rush.

He's still very involved in the offense despite the weaker numbers in his past three games. Continue starting Gonzalez like you always do, because he'll catch fire eventually.
