Tony Gonzalez comes out flat in fantasy finale

Kevin C. Cox

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez was a non-factor in Week 16. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez was a non-factor in Saturday night's game against the Detroit Lions. Even though Matt Ryan exploded for four touchdowns, Gonzalez finished the game with only one receptions for 9 yards.

He also failed to find the end zone, as the Falcons wide receivers stole the show. Regardless, the team came out with a big win, clinching a 1st-round bye.

Fantasy Analysis: Tony Gonzalez has been an excellent fantasy option this season, but bombed out in his season finale. With only 9 yards on the day, Gonzalez's no-show performance is going to leave a hole for fantasy owners in the championship.

This is always a risk when starting Falcons players, but Gonzalez has been pretty solid.
