Big Bob had a big flop in Week 7, and he's not in a smash spot to rebound in Week 8. Minnesota has been just okay against TEs this season, and with Davante Adams back in the picture, targets are suddenly hard to come by in Green Bay. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Remember when Tonyan was the No. 1 tight end in fantasy coming off his three-touchdown game against the Falcons? Since that time, he's seen six targets and caught five passes for 57 yards. He has been trying to play through a few injuries, so maybe he's getting healthier as the weeks go on? The Vikings don't look so bad on paper against the tight end position, as they've allowed the 14th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position, but when you look at their efficiency numbers, they're likely a top-five matchup for tight ends. They've allowed an 80.0 percent catch-rate (3rd-highest), 15.13 yards per reception (highest in NFL), 12.1 yards per target (most in NFL), and 2.41 PPR points per target (4th-highest). That doesn't seem like such a brutal matchup, does it? We should pay attention to the injury reports because if Tonyan practices in full, he should be a solid low-end TE1/high-end TE2 streamer.If there's a game where you can simply ignore all tight ends, it's this one. The Patriots have played six games, and despite having a lack of receiving threats, no Patriots tight end has seen more than three targets in a game, and no tight end has recorded more than 38 yards or scored a touchdown. Avoid.
Derek Lofland

The Vikings are 15th against fantasy tight ends, Tonyan is a boom / bust TE1 at home.
