Robert Tonyan signs with Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings signed TE Robert Tonyan.

Fantasy Impact

Tonyan caught 11 passes behind Cole Kmet with the Bears last season after spending the first five seasons of his career with the Packers. He figures to backup T.J. Hockenson with Minnesota.

Robert Tonyan steps up with three catches in Week 17

Robert Tonyan caught three of four passes for 40 yards during the Bears' 37-17 win over the Falcons in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Tonyan normally operates as the Bears' No. 2 tight end, but he saw increased opportunities on Sunday with Cole Kmet (knee) held to just 13 snaps and zero targets. The veteran likely won't replicate his solid showing if Kmet returns to a full workload in Week 18.

Robert Tonyan catches lone target in Week 6

Robert Tonyan caught his lone target for 11 yards in the Bears' 19-13 Week 6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Tonyan remains an afterthought on offense to begin the season for the Bears, failing to reach 20 receiving yards in each of five games for the club. The veteran tight end offers minimal value to fantasy managers currently and will be best left on the waiver wire ahead of a Week 7 contest against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Robert Tonyan's Targets Turn To Dust In Week 2 Defeat

In a game where the Bears' offense was as elusive as a shadow in the night, Robert Tonyan's fantasy relevance took a nosedive.

Fantasy Impact

The 29-year-old tight end was targeted twice in the Week 2 clash against the Buccaneers, but failed to convert either into a reception, leaving him with a goose egg in the stat column. The Bears' 27-17 loss to the Buccaneers only added salt to the wound for Tonyan's fantasy managers. Currently ranked as TE48, Tonyan's season-long performance has been barren, with 2 targets, 0 receptions, 0 receiving yards, and 0 touchdowns to his name. Looking ahead, Tonyan and the Bears will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, where he'll hope to break his dry spell and find some oasis in the form of fantasy points.

Robert Tonyan (back) downgraded to questionable Saturday

Robert Tonyan popped up on the injury report with a back injury and is now listed as questionable in Week 1 when the Bears take on Green Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Tonyan was poised to make his Bears' debut, and against his former team nonetheless, but now is uncertain to go in Week 1. The Bears still have Cole Kmet ahead of Tonyan on the depth chart, whom they gave an extension to this offseason. But Tonyan was set to get the looks at the TE2 position. If Tonyan cannot go on Sunday, Kmet could see a slight increase in production.
