  Bills | Dawson Knox making progress    Fri Aug 16, 10:04 PM

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice and spent time running routes with the training staff Friday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Ole Miss could be the lead tight end for the Bills this. First, he has to get healthy -- stay healthy -- and produce for the team as a receiver while also being a sound blocker on what should be one of the most run-heavy offenses in the NFL.

Miami Dolphins TE Nick O'Leary is the team's best pass-catching option at the position, according to Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald.

Footballguys view: This has been the consistent word out of Dolphins camp. While O'Leary is playing well, second-year TE Mike Gesicki continues to struggle both with blocking and pass-catching.

Minnesota Vikings rookie TE Irv Smith has been surprising coaches with his blocking, according to assistant head coach Gary Kubiak, Thursday, Aug. 15.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz's production likely to take a hit    Tue Aug 13, 02:27 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has been 'one of - if not the - best players in training camp,' and 'that's especially true in the red zone where he seems to be unstoppable,' according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt. Nevertheless, his targets are expected to drop in an offense with Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Nelson Agholor, Dallas Goedert and Darren Sproles, per Rosenblatt.

Footballguys view: It's going to be difficult to duplicate the 116 receptions Ertz had in 2018. We like projecting him more around 85 catches or so, and Ertz is still a top-3 fantasy tight end regardless of his numbers taking a dip.

  Texans | Jordan Thomas back on field    Mon Aug 12, 07:06 PM

Houston Texans TE Jordan M. Thomas (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: Thomas should be the lead tight end for the Texans this year. We love their high-powered passing game and Thomas has a size advantage over nearly anyone tasked with covering him. Thomas should be considered a TE3 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2019.

  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.
