Adam Trautman missed three games last season due to an MCL sprain, but his season was still a massive disappointment outside of the injury. His 1.05 yards per route run and 4.1 yards after the catch per reception won't get anyone excited for his 2022 prospects. Last year's depth chart was a perfect storm scenario for him to step forward if that was in the cards for his career arch. Sadly he only logged one top 12 tight end fantasy finish last year. The hope helium has been drained from his balloon. He's waiver wire fodder or a streaming option should injuries strike the Saints depth chart.

 Once regarded as an up-and-coming elite fantasy TE, Howard has been useless the last two years. Even with the move to Buffalo, it seems unlikely that Howard will become an impact fantasy contributor unless an injury were to strike Dawson Knox. At 27 years old, the verdict isn't really totally out on Howard, with tight ends not traditionally not firing until their second contract. He has at times performed at an elite level in the NFL - he was PFF's second-highest-graded tight end in 2018. He just needs to carve out a bigger role, where he can do damage as a receiver.

He's produced modest numbers in his first two NFL seasons, but the former University of Dayton star has the potential to be a gem.
