Trautman brought in his lone target for 19 yards in the Saints' 24-9 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Trautman emerged for a single reception, and that was the extent of his involvement Sunday. The rookie has been held without a catch in five of nine contests this season and is not on the fantasy radar outside of dynasty formats.
Trautman hauled in all three of his targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 38-3 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. The rookie entered the game with just three receptions for 34 yards on the season, so this performance was certainly unexpected. Trautman grabbed a seven-yard strike in the first quarter for his first NFL touchdown that put the Saints up, 14-0. With New Orleans' receiving corps returning to full strength, Trautman likely will see a reduced role moving forward, and fantasy managers shouldn't expect regular scoring.
Trautman failed to bring in his only target in the Saints' 27-24 win over the Panthers on Sunday. After serving as a healthy scratch in Week 5, Trautman got some work in Sunday's win with Michael Thomas (hamstring) and Emmanuel Sanders (COVID) out of action, though he was unable to capitalize on the playing time. With Jared Cook healthy, Trautman isn't on the fantasy radar in even the deepest of leagues.
Trautman (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Chargers. The rookie third-round pick wasn't targeted Week 4 despite the absence of Jared Cook (groin), and he won't be suiting up Monday with Cook active. Trautman has played a minor role in the passing game through four contests, catching all three targets for 34 yards.
Trautman wasn't targeted in Sunday's 35-29 win over the Lions. The rookie third-rounder looked poised for more looks with Jared Cook (groin) out of the lineup, but Josh Hill ended up logging more snaps and finished with one catch for seven yards. Rookie tight ends are often tough to depend on, and even if Cook sits out Week 5 against the Chargers, Michael Thomas (ankle) could return and likely will command his usual target share.
