Player Outlook

Trautman entered the NFL with plenty of sleeper buzz as a Day 2 pick in 2020, but he spent his rookie season largely playing second fiddle to Jared Cook. Even with the latter moving on in 2021, Trautman only saw a brief window as a leaned-upon option in the passing game despite the offense's need for someone to emerge for much of the season. From Weeks 8-11 he saw at least six targets in all four games yet averaged only 35 yards per game while scoring just once before suffering an MCL injury that limited him to only three targets the remainder of the year. Even with Jarvis Landry aboard as a short-to-intermediate option in the passing game, Trautman retains some deep sleeper potential if he can stay healthy this year, but it only makes him a TE2 in most leagues worth keeping on the watch list rather than the roster to begin the year.

Player News
  • Trautman caught 27 of 43 targets for 263 yards and two touchdowns over 13 games in 2021. Expectations were relatively high for Trautman entering the season with the No. 1 role at tight end seemingly all to himself. While he logged a majority of the snaps whenever he was available, Trautman ran a route on just over a third of his snaps, and his lone productive fantasy outing came against the Eagles' league-worst defense versus tight ends. Otherwise, he mainly provided value as a blocker as the Saints revolving door at quarterback made it hard for any New Orleans pass catcher to generate consistent production. Even though Trautman should again see plenty of playing time entering his third season in 2022, the 24-year-old will need to see heightened usage as a receiver in order to become a dependable fantasy option.

  • Trautman was not targeted with a pass during Sunday's 18-10 win over the Panthers. Trautman logged 83 percent of the offensive snaps but was never targeted with a pass. While he consistently has logged a lion's share of the playing time when healthy this year, his only decent fantasy performance came Week 11 against the Eagles defense, which is league worst versus tight ends. Otherwise, Trautman hasn't been worthy of much attention in the fantasy realm, and it should remain that way Week 18 against Atlanta.

  • Trautman (illness) came off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. Trautman is one of 19 players that the Saints got back from COVID protocols this week, as they'll field a much more complete team come Sunday against Carolina. The 2020 third-round pick sits atop the Saints' tight end depth chart when healthy.

  • Trautman (illness) wasn't activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to the Saints' deadline for Week 16 roster moves and won't be available for Monday's game against the Dolphins, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports. After testing positive for the virus Wednesday and landing on the list, Trautman was facing an uphill battle to gain clearance for the Week 16 contest. With Trautman sidelined for the fourth time in five games -- he was spent Weeks 12 through 14 on injured reserve with a sprained knee -- Nick Vannett and Ethan Wolf are left as the Saints' options at tight end.

  • The Saints placed Trautman (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Trautman's placement on the list was the result of a positive test of the virus, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He now may be in danger of missing Monday's game against the Dolphins, and he joins fellow tight end Juwan Johnson on the COVID-19 list after the latter landed there Tuesday. The Saints have Garrett Griffin (hamstring) and Dylan Soehner (undisclosed) on injured reserve, leaving Nick Vannett as the only healthy tight end on the active roster at the moment.
