Tony Gonzalez has rough day for Falcons, fantasy owners

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons tight end had a miserable game Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez had his fifth fantasy day of two or three points in nine games this season Sunday. None of Gonzalez' teammates got going either, as the team was blown out by the Seattle Seahawks, 33-10.

Gonzalez caught only three passes for 29 yards Sunday, a week after he had 81 yards and a touchdown. The tight end has had between 20 and 40 yards six times in nine games this season.

Fantasy impact: Gonzalez had 22 catches, 246 yards, and two touchdowns in back-to-back games in Weeks 4 and 5, looking like his typically dominant self, but otherwise he hasn't been much this season, with only a couple touchdowns salvaging his value.

Gonzalez is sixth among tight ends in fantasy scoring this season, but apart from a 26-point outing in Week 4, he's averaging barely five points an outing. He is probably still a TE1, if for no other reason than because the team doesn't have much else, but he's not nearly the stud for which everyone hoped.
