  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches two passes in loss

    Saubert secured both of his targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 22-16 overtime loss to the Raiders.

    Saubert continued to operate as the Broncos' No. 2 tight end Sunday behind rookie Greg Dulcich. With 27 offensive snaps, the veteran saw roughly half the playing time of Dulcich, who played 53 snaps in the contest. Saubert's limited opportunities in a struggling passing attack make him irrelevant for fantasy purposes. Barring an injury to Dulcich, the 28-year-old should be left off fantasy rosters heading into a Week 12 matchup with the Panthers.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Plays one offensive snap

    Saubert played one offensive snap and failed to see a single target in Monday's 19-16 overtime loss to the Chargers.

    After leading all tight ends in snaps in the past two games, Saubert took a major backseat to rookie Greg Dulcich in his debut. The veteran practiced in a limited fashion due to an ankle injury but was active for the game. His lack of involvement could be related to the injury, but it appears the coaching staff is confident in Dulcich, who impressed as the team's new No. 1 tight end. It's likely that Saubert's involvement in the offense will decrease and he'll be relegated to a depth role going forward. The 28-year-old should remain off the fantasy radar when the Broncos host the Jets in Week 7.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: In uniform Monday

    Saubert (thigh) is listed as active for Monday night's game against the Chargers.

    Saubert was limited in practice this week, but he'll give it a go Week 6 and figures to share TE work with Greg Dulcich, who came off IR on Monday. Meanwhile, Albert Okwuegbunam was made inactive by the Broncos.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Questionable entering Monday

    Saubert (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Chargers.

    Saubert managed to practice all week in limited fashion, which theoretically should put him on track to play in Monday's divisional battle. The veteran tight end easily doubled his total receptions in last Thursday's loss to the Colts, but he's been relatively inconsistent overall, with the Broncos content on using a four-man platoon to cover the position.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Logs limited practice Friday

    Saubert was a limited participant during Friday's practice due to an ankle injury.

    Saubert presumably picked up the ankle injury during last Thursday's loss to the Colts and has now had his reps capped on two occasions to begin Week 6 prep. He'll have one more opportunity Saturday to improve to a full participant before Denver needs to make a decision on his status for Monday's contest against the Chargers.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches five passes in loss

    Saubert caught five of seven targets for 36 yards in Thursday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Colts.

    Saubert once again led all Broncos tight ends in snap percentage, playing 56 percent of the team's offensive snaps. For the time being, it appears that the veteran has earned the trust of the Denver coaching staff and quarterback Russell Wilson, as his seven targets were the third highest in the Denver passing attack. Unfortunately, this bump in usage did not result in much for fantasy purposes with the offense continuing to struggle. Despite Saubert's climb to the top of the depth chart, the 28-year-old will be difficult to trust for fantasy purposes when the Broncos visit the Chargers in Week 6.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Leads Denver tight ends in snaps

    Saubert caught one of two targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 32-23 loss to the Raiders.

    Though Saubert didn't produce much for fantasy purposes in the contest, the 6-foot-5, 253-pounder led all Broncos tight ends in playing time. Saubert was on the field 41 of 53 offensive snaps, while Eric Tomlinson saw action on 24 offensive snaps. Albert Okwuegbunam surprisingly recorded just one snap in the loss, as he seems to have ceded top billing on the depth chart to Saubert. Even so, the 28-year-old finds himself in a murky situation on a struggling offense, with rookie tight end Greg Dulcich nearing a return. Saubert should remain off the fantasy radar heading into a Week 5 matchup with the Colts.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Nabs touchdown catch Week 2

    Saubert recorded a 22-yard touchdown reception among his two targets in Sunday's 16-9 win over the Texans.

    Saubert narrowly missed out on reeling in a touchdown reception in the Broncos' 17-16 loss to the Seahawks in Week 1, but he came down with a tough catch in the end zone while being draped by a defender early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win. The score helped put the Broncos up 13-9 before kicker Brandon McManus tacked on an insurance field goal with 3:36 remaining. Despite his involvement in the red zone early on this season, Saubert has only drawn three targets in total and has played fewer than 40 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps in both of the team's first two games. Even if top tight end Albert Okwuegbunam were to miss time, Saubert would likely be deployed mostly as a blocker and wouldn't be in store for an abundance of targets.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Back with Denver

    Saubert re-signed Wednesday with Denver on a one-year deal, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Saubert appeared in all 17 games with Denver last season, recording eight catches on 12 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown. He's been a solid blocker and consistent contributor on special teams for the Broncos, the two areas where he's likely to provide most of his value if he earns a spot on Denver's Week 1 roster. With the departure of Noah Fant to Seattle, the Broncos are down their top pass-catching tight end from 2022, but Albert Okwuegbunam and rookie third-round pick Greg Dulcich are bigger threats than Saubert to absorb Fant's vacated targets.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Hits pay dirt in win

    Saubert caught his lone target for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Chargers.

    Saubert operated as Denver's No. 3 tight end Sunday and was the recipient of Teddy Bridgewater's only passing touchdown of the contest. The touchdown was Saubert's first in 11 contests this season, and since he's averaging just one target per game, he'll likely need to find the end zone most weeks to deliver meaningful fantasy value. Since that can't be relied upon, Saubert should remain far off the fantasy radar.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches one pass

    Saubert caught his lone target for three yards in Thursday's 17-14 loss to the Browns.

    Saubert played on 42 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps as he continued to operate at the team's No. 2 tight end with Albert Okwuegbunam placed on IR. The 27-year-old tight end was unable to capitalize on his increased playing time, playing well behind starter Noah Fant. Saubert is in no way an option for fantasy purposes. The 6-foot-5, 253-pounder would need both Fant and Okwuegbunam to be sidelined with injuries to see any sort of path to fantasy relevance. The Broncos will host Washington in Week 8.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches three passes in loss

    Saubert secured three of his five targets for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

    With Albert Okwuegbunam (hamstring) placed on IR, Saubert saw his first action as Denver's No. 2 tight end. Unfortunately, that didn't equate to much in the way of production behind starter Noah Fant. Saubert played on just 35 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps. With Okwuegbunam sidelined, Saubert will likely continue to see increased playing time behind Fant, but he will remain far off the fantasy radar with so many mouths to feed in the Denver passing attack. Up next for the Broncos is a Thursday night showdown with the Browns in Week 7.
