  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Finishes season as starter

    Deguara was targeted 33 times and caught 25 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns over 16 appearances in the 2021 season.

    Deguara played a bit role early in the season, but he moved up the depth chart when fellow tight end Robert Tonyan suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 8 and finished the campaign as the Packers' top tight end. He did not do a whole lot outside of two long scores, but he was taken in the third round just two years ago, so he's going to get more opportunities in 2022. Just how many remains to be seen, as Tonyan will be a free agent this offseason.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Gets loose late in loss

    Deguara was targeted four times and caught three passes for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-30 loss to the Lions.

    Deguara did nearly all his damage on a 62-yard catch and run in the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest, but when it was all said and done he tied his career high for catches in a game and set a new career best in the receiving yards department. He led Packers tight ends in snaps six times over the team's last seven games and will head into the postseason as the team's top option at his position.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Does little in third straight

    Deguara was targeted three times and caught two passes for 11 yards in Sunday's 37-10 victory over the Vikings.

    Deguara would have had a much better night had he hauled in an Aaron Rodgers pass into the end zone on the Packers' first drive, but alas, he failed to hit even the 20-yard mark for the third straight game. Deguara remains the most appealing fantasy option among Green Bay's tight ends, but with him producing minimally and the Packers having already sewn up the top seed in the NFC, there are likely better options to go with Week 18.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Operating as top tight end

    Deguara was targeted three times and caught two passes for five yards in the Packers' 24-22 victory over the Browns in Week 16.

    Deguara played at least 55 percent of the snaps for a third week in a row, and for the first time in his career was the only Packers tight end to spend more than half the offensive plays on the field. While those numbers seemingly point to him being the team's top option at the position, they have not translated into any meaningful production, as he has recorded just eight receptions for 65 yards in three games since the Week 13 bye. Deguara should again spend ample time on the field in the Packers' Week 17 matchup with the Vikings, and although his recent numbers don't inspire much confidence, he should have a chance to find paydirt against an opponent that allowed tight ends to rack up five scores over its last six games.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Little impact in win

    Deguara was targeted five times and caught three passes for 16 yards in Sunday's 31-30 victory over the Ravens.

    While the five targets were a career high for Deguara, he was unable to do much with them, and he finished with no more than 16 yards for the fourth time in the six games the Packers have played since losing starting tight end Robert Tonyan (knee). Deguara did play more than 50 percent of the snaps for the second week in a row, and he will have the matchup in his favor in Week 16 against the Browns. However, his game log suggests he will be tough to trust in that contest.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Sets career highs in two categories

    Deguara was targeted three times and caught three passes for 44 yards in Sunday's 45-30 victory over the Bears.

    The 44 yards were a career best for Deguara, as were the 37 snaps he played in Sunday's contest. He has not stamped himself as the Packers' top tight end, as teammate Marcedes Lewis racked up more yards and receptions Week 14 and played just one fewer snap. However, Deguara at least has done enough to put himself on the radar for Weeks 15 and 16, when the Packers will take on Ravens and Browns defenses that have been below average this season against opposing tight ends.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Two receptions in fifth straight

    Deguara was targeted four times and caught two passes for 13 yards in Sunday's 36-28 victory over the Rams.

    The Packers activated four tight ends for Sunday's contest, and although Deguara was not one of the two credited with a start, he still wound up leading all of them in snaps, targets and receiving yards, catching exactly two passes for the fifth straight game. Deguara has established himself as the top fantasy option among Green Bay's tight ends, but he also averaged just a 44 percent snap share over the past two weeks. As such, fantasy players should not feel obligated to hang onto him through the Packers' Week 13 bye.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Tallies first career touchdown

    Deguara was targeted twice and caught two passes for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Vikings.

    Deguara only got a couple opportunities to make a play Sunday, but he capitalized on the biggest one, hauling in a 25-yard pass into the end zone to bring the Packers within six points late in the second quarter. He has just 10 receptions this season, but the 2020 third-rounder looks like a player on the rise, as he has both caught two passes and seen his snap-count percentage increase in four straight games. His 27 snaps Sunday led Packers tight ends and were 10 more than Marcedes Lewis, the player who finished second on that list. Deguara should continue getting chances to contribute, as Robert Tonyan (knee), the Packers' top tight end, will not return this season.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Plays season-high 25 snaps

    Deguara was targeted three times and caught two passes for nine yards in Sunday's 17-0 victory over the Seahawks.

    Deguara didn't provide much help for anyone that threw a dart at him in fantasy contests, but he did play a season-high 25 snaps in Sunday's contest. His role has expanded some since Robert Tonyan (knee) was lost for the season, and he now has two receptions in three straight games after catching just two passes all season prior to that. It could be tough for him to do much more than that Week 11, as he'll remain behind Marcedes Lewis on the depth chart and face a Vikings defense that has allowed tight ends to average a measly 2.8 receptions and 30.5 yards over its last six games.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Hauls in two passes

    Deguara was targeted twice and caught two passes for 16 yards in Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Chiefs.

    Deguara matched the career-high two receptions he recorded Week 8, but he didn't do much for fantasy players who were hoping he would step up in the absence of fellow tight end Robert Tonyan (knee). Deguara will have more opportunities to contribute with Tonyan done for the season, but he played the third-most snaps among Packers tight ends Week 9, so his role wasn't markedly different than it was in previous weeks. Of course, his prospects could improve some once starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers (illness) returns.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Career-high two catches Thursday

    Deguara hauled in both targets for 20 yards in Thursday's 24-21 win at Arizona.

    Deguara doubled his catch count on the campaign in the process, and he's likely to earn more work moving forward after Robert Tonyan suffered a torn ACL in the contest. Per Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site, coach Mike LaFleur expects to take a "by-committee" approach at tight end moving forward, and because of the team's TE-heavy scheme Deguara may begin to realize the investment made in him as a third-round pick in the 2020 draft. Aside from Deguara, Green Bay trots out Marcedes Lewis, Dominique Dafney and Tyler Davis at the position.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Second reception this season

    Deguara was targeted once and caught one pass for four yards in Sunday's 24-14 victory over the Bears.

    Deguara has caught only two passes all season, but that's one more than he caught last year during his rookie campaign, when a torn ACL limited him to just two appearances. Deguara has played at least 20 percent of the snaps in four straight games, but he is operating as the Packers' third tight end behind Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Returns from bout with concussion

    Deguara (concussion) is active for Sunday's game at San Francisco, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

    Deguara completed the concussion protocol late in the week, while the Packers placed fellow tight end Dominique Dafney (hip) on injured reserve Saturday. With Dafney out for at least three contests, Deguara will join Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis as the team's top three TEs for the foreseeable future. In three career appearances, Deguara has earned just 36 offensive snaps en route to one catch (on two targets) for 12 yards.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: No injury designation

    Deguara (concussion) was a full participant in Friday's practice and doesn't have an injury designation heading into Week 3.

    Deguara didn't play in Week 2 and was a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday, but his status took a turn for the better Friday. The 24-year-old shouldn't be on fantasy radars as he has played only five offensive snaps this season, but he may see increased reps in Week 3 if Dominique Dafney (hip) is sidelined.

  • Packers' Josiah Deguara: Remains limited at practice

    Deguara (concussion) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    Deguara remained limited as he recovers from the concussion that he sustained Week 1. It's unclear exactly where he stands in his quest through the protocol for head injuries, but he seems destined to enter the weekend with a questionable designation for Sunday's game at San Francisco. Meanwhile, Dominique Dafney (hip) joined Deguara as a limited participant Thursday, leaving just two healthy tight ends (Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis) on the active roster.
