Despite having fewer than half the targets, receptions, and yards of Travis Kelce, Tonyan tied Kelce for the most touchdowns by a tight end in 2020 with 11, and he was second among tight ends in yards per target. Despite his nose for the end zone, though, he had only 11 red zone targets (just the 19th-most among tight ends), so his production near the goal-line almost certainly isn't repeatable absent a change in usage. Tonyan should be viewed as a borderline top-10 option. Even with some natural touchdown regression, he should still have plenty of value playing with one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, particularly with the lack of many other established options in the passing game.
