TE - GB
Week 3 Outlook
Robert Tonyan brought in two of three targets for 25 yards and a TD in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.
Tonyan found himself on the receiving end of an Aaron Rodgers touchdown, posting the third score in his three-year NFL career. Tonyan rarely sees meaningful playing time or targets, so there’s no reason to pick him up off the waiver wire after Week 2.
Robert Tonyan could start the season as Green Bay's top receiving threat at tight end, per Matt Schneidman of the Athletic.
Jace Sternberger was projected to be the Packers' top tight end, but Tonyan could have surpassed him as Green Bay's top pass-catching option. "It doesn’t seem as if the Packers are quite ready to thrust Sternberger into the No. 1 tight end role," per Schneidman. "There’s nothing wrong with that, he’s caught three passes in his career and spent a couple of weeks this summer on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and Tonyan will likely be the main receiving option at the position to start the season." Tonyan hauled in 10 catches on 15 targets for 100 yards over 11 games in 2019. The 26-year-old is worth a flyer in deep-league and Tight End-Premium scoring formats.
Robert Tonyan brought in his only target for a 12-yard TD in the Packers’ 20-15 win over the Redskins on Sunday.
Tonyan was on the receiving end of Aaron Rodgers' lone touchdown in Sunday's win, finding the end zone for the first time this season. He entered the matchup with a 6/74 receiving line, and he's not a fantasy-relevant option in any format considering his low volume.
Robert Tonyan caught his only target for 23 yards in the Packers’ 34-24 win over the Cowboys on Sunday.
Tonyan played behind Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis and continues to see minimal action in the offense. He doesn’t need to be rostered.
Robert Tonyan went for 17 yards on three of five targets in the Packers' preseason loss to the Ravens on Thursday.
Tonyan finished with a respectable five targets yet mustered just 17 yards. The second-year TE will play behind Jimmy Graham and Jace Sternberger and will not see the field enough to be a fantasy-relevant option this season.
