Toy Gonzalez injury update: TE questionable, expected to be available for fantasy owners

The Falcons' tight end is listed as questionable for Sunday's game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe) is listed as questionable and is expected to play in the team's Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills. Gonzalez was limited in practice throughout the week and did not experience any setbacks with his toe.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez will be on the field on Sunday and should continue to provide owners with moderate value. Gonzalez has caught three or four passes in six of his 12 games this year and has hauled in a reasonable four touchdowns. He has only topped the 100-yard receiving mark once back in Week 4 and his 10.5 yards per catch is well below his 11.4 average. His days of being an elite NFL tight end are likely behind him, but the 37-year-old future Hall-of-Famer is still capable of contributing to fantasy teams.

The Buffalo Bills surprisingly present a tough match-up for Gonzalez. Their defense is a top-five fewest unit in PPR formats with respect to points given up to tight ends. Gonzalez will remain a mid-range TE1 option against the Bills and owners can continue to expect a moderate contribution.
