Falcons | Tony Gonzalez questionable

Fri, 29 Nov 2013 15:08:12 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is questionable for Week 13. However, he's expected to play against the Buffalo Bills this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Opposing defenses are keying on Gonzalez and forcing Matt Ryan to go elsewhere in the passing game to beat them. For this reason, he's become a weak TE1 play, even against the Bills.

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Tony G will play. He's become a weak fantasy starting tight end thanks to his injury and the lack of other offensive playmakers around him. He's a low-end TE1 or flex.

Falcons | Optimistic Tony Gonzalez will play

Sun, 17 Nov 2013 06:17:50 -0800

The Atlanta Falcons are optimistic TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) will be able to play in the team's Week 11 game. Gonzalez will be a game time decision.

Fantasy Tip: If Gonzalez is on the field, it is tough to justify sitting him as he is likely still better with the injury than most of the other tight end options available to you.

Falcons | Tony Gonzalez questionable

Fri, 15 Nov 2013 11:45:44 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is questionable for Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It sounds as if he'll be a game-time decision. Gonzalez has missed only two games in his 17-year career.

Fantasy Tip: If we had to guess, we would expect Gonzalez to tough it out. He's a low-end TE1 if he's playing. Have a backup option ready just in case.

Falcons | Tony Gonzalez not sure of status

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 10:44:02 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (toe) is unsure of his status heading into Week 11, and he indicated that he'll likely have more tests this week to determine the severity of the ailment. "I played on it," he said. "Wasn't able to go full speed, but we'll see how it goes the next day. Usually when you have injuries, you can get through it through in the game. Then the next day after it calms down and swells up a little bit, then that's when the trouble starts. So, we'll see how it goes. Tomorrow, I'm going to wake up, and hopefully it's not that bad." He hasn't missed a game since 2006 and has missed only two games in his 16-plus year NFL career. Gonzalez finished with only three catches for 29 yards on five targets in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: A hobbled Tony G is still likely better than many tight ends you'll have to choose from. Keep an eye on how much he accomplishes in practice this week. The Falcons will surely attempt to rest him up as much as possible.

Falcons | Tony Gonzalez open to trade

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 06:15:39 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez said he is open to a trade if the team wanted to deal him. "I love my guys on this team too much to go ask for a trade," Gonzalez said. "It would be something that would come from them where they said, 'Hey, it makes sense because we could get something good for you and send you to a team that's a contender.' So I understand the thought process behind that."

Falcons | Roddy White out

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 12:18:38 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Harry Douglas likely will be the team's top receiver Week 7 but probably will be covered by Darrelle Revis, which will make his job difficult. Tony Gonzalez could also receive increased targets, but he likely will be double covered during the game. Owners could consider Douglas as a No. 3 wide receiver or flex option this week. Drew Davis and Kevin Cone could also be more involved in the passing game but are not fantasy relevant.

Falcons | Tony Gonzalez being double teamed

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 09:06:34 -0700

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.

Wed, 09 Oct 2013 12:28:59 -0700

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said the team absolutely is not looking to trade TE Tony Gonzalez to a contending team. "That's preposterous that Tony would be traded," Smith said. "He's an integral part of our offense and has been since he's been here. And he's having another Hall of Fame season." Gonzalez is second on the team with 33 catches for 339 yards and leads the team with three touchdowns.
