Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez put together another solid stat line in Monday night's game against the Denver Broncos, catching seven passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez put together another solid stat line in Monday night's game against the Denver Broncos, catching seven passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. Gonzalez was involved early and often in Monday night's game, and has continued to become one of Matt Ryan's favorite targets despite his age.

Fantasy Impact: Tony Gonzalez is still a reliable fantasy tight end, especially in this high-octane Atlanta offense. He is heavily targeted, especially in the red zone, and should continue to reward fantasy owners. Matt Ryan is developing into an elite quarterback before our eyes, and Gonzalez is reaping the benefits.
