Trautman hauled in 17 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown as a rookie in 2020 over 15 regular-season games.
With Jared Cook operating as New Orleans' primary tight end for most of the season, Trautman was minimally involved in the receiving game as a rookie. His single-game high for receptions was just three (twice) and his high for yardage was 45, though his outlook for 2021 is a bit more encouraging. The veteran Cook is set to be a free agent, and after spending a third-round pick on Trautman in 2020, the team may be confident enough in him to let Cook walk. If Trautman is New Orleans' primary pass-catching tight end next season, he could be a productive fantasy player, though who's under center will certainly factor into his production.
