Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez caught eight passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez caught eight passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. Gonzalez was the second-most targeted receiver behind wide receiver Roddy White, with 11 targets. On the year, Gonzalez has caught 79 passes for 803 yards and eight touchdowns. He is averaging 53.5 receiving yards per game.

Fantasy impact: Gonzalez is going out in style and is still getting the job done for fantasy owners. The 49ers are giving up the sixth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends, but Gonzalez still put up decent numbers and a score. He will remain a solid start if you still have a championship game looming. The Falcons will face the Carolina Panthers in Week 17. The Panthers are giving up the 15th-most fantasy points to tight ends.
