Falcons | Tony Gonzalez being double teamed

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez has been jammed by two defenders, much like what is done to stop a gunner on special teams, in recent games against the New England Patriots and New York Jets. The coverage was flagged for a penalty in the second quarter in the game against the Jets, when LB David Harris was whistled for defensive holding against Gonzalez. "I think it's illegal," Gonzalez said. "I do know they called it right when I got to 5 yards. So if I can get to 5 yards, then they're going to call it, it seems like, which is good news for me. Because that's no fun going out there and getting double-teamed like that."

Fantasy Tip: Tony G is too good to be shut down completely, even if the Falcons are missing contributions from Julio Jones (foot) and Roddy White (hamstring, ankle). However, he will continue to receive heavy attention from opposing defenses to force Matt Ryan to look elsewhere. This means we may have seen the peak of Gonzalez's value in 2013 unless he's traded, which is unlikely.
