  Raiders | Oakland adds to practice squad    Sun Sep 1, 11:21 PM

The Oakland Raiders added free-agents DT Anthony Rush, OG Lester Cotton, WR Marcell Ateman, DE Quinton Bell, CB Dylan Mabin and TE Eric Saubert (Patriots) to their practice squad Sunday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Eric Saubert has been a crazy deep dynasty prospect we've monitored since he came out of tiny Drake College. We'll see if a fresh start with the Raiders helps him out. He's got an athletic profile and good concentration as a receiving tight end.

  Falcons | Eric Saubert sent to NE    Mon Aug 12, 09:32 AM

Atlanta Falcons TE Eric Saubert was traded the New England Patriots Monday, Aug. 12, in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Footballguys view: The Falcons were deep enough at the tight end position to move on from Saubert. A fifth-round pick out of Drake in the 2017 NFL draft, Saubert only has five catches over two seasons in the pros.

  Patriots | Eric Saubert headed to NE    Mon Aug 12, 09:31 AM

Atlanta Falcons TE Eric Saubert was acquired by the New England Patriots Monday, Aug. 12, in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Footballguys view: The Patriots get an interesting and athletic player here to add to the tight end room. Saubert is a move tight end who can make difficult catches over the middle or near the sidelines. The Falcons rarely used him and when he was on the field, Saubert was mostly a blocker. Matt LaCosse should be the starter for the Patriots to open the season and Saubert will compete to make it as an end-of-the-bench guy. In crazy deep dynasty formats we'll continue to watch Saubert.

  Falcons | Eric Saubert could be the odd man out    Thu Jul 18, 02:33 AM

Atlanta Falcons TE Eric Saubert could be released if the team elects to carry just three tight ends on its 53-man roster, in the opinion of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter.

Footballguys view: Saubert is an athletic tight end who was a fifth-round pick out of Drake in 2017. In two seasons as a pro, Saubert only has five catches for 48 yards. If he was the odd man out this year, we're certain a team like the 49ers or the Patriots would be interested in him.

  Falcons | Eric Saubert may have bigger role    Sun Jul 15, 07:29 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Eric Saubert likely will be expected to do more on offense this season. He could push for the No. 2 tight end job during training camp.

Footballguys view: We've been monitoring Saubert in super deep dynasty leagues since he came out of Drake as a fifth-round pick in 2017. He's a talented move tight end with good hands, concentration and body control. His blocking ability is a work in progress, so he'll be working for snaps/targets behind Austin Hooper in 2018.

  Falcons | Eric Saubert showing off his hands    Fri Jun 15, 12:55 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Eric Saubert did 'a nice job' catching the ball during offseason workouts and could push for a meaningful role after playing only 31 offensive snaps last season, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure.

Footballguys view: Saubert is a great dynasty sleeper we love to roster in super deep TE-premium leagues. He's got incredible concentration and has the body control to make difficult catches. He's competing with Logan Paulsen for snaps behind starter Austin Hooper in 2018.
