  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Minimal role in loss

    Trautman did not receive a target while playing 33 of his 35 total snaps on offense during Sunday's 20-10 loss to Tampa Bay. Trautman did not record a reception or target for the second straight game. Juwan Johnson finished as the clear top receiving option at tight end, hauling in four of his seven targets for 40 yards while playing 51 offensive snaps. Trautman's usage over the first two weeks of the season indicates that he's at least ahead of Nick Vannett, who has yet to suit up this season, on the depth chart.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Limited role in Week 1

    Trautman played 25 offensive snaps and four special-teams snaps during Sunday's 27-26 win over the Falcons. Trautman did not see a target while lining up as New Orleans' No. 2 tight end behind Juwan Johnson (45 offensive snaps, 16 special-teams snaps) in Week 1. The 2020 third-round pick also was called for an illegal shift penalty that ultimately was declined on a failed two-point conversion attempt in the fourth quarter. Trautman's usage alongside Johnson could determine his overall value as a receiver in the team's unproven TE corps moving forward this season.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Optimistic about 2022

    Trautman feels more athletic and healthier than he did at this time last season and wants to be a bigger part of the Saints' passing attack in 2022, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports. Trautman spent most of 2021 atop the Saints' tight end depth chart but didn't do much with the opportunity, totaling just 263 yards and two touchdowns. With a healthy Michael Thomas and rookie first-round pick Chris Olave expected to draw more defensive attention on the outside, Trautman should have more space to get open inside and expects to help the team control the ball by moving the chains.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Two touchdowns in 13 games

    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.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Lays goose egg

    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.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Returns from COVID list

    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.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Not available for Monday night

    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.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Practice window opens

    The Saints designated Trautman (knee) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. Trautman landed on IR after he suffered an MCL sprain during a Week 11 loss to the Eagles. He's missed the mandatory three games in order for him to be eligible to return to the active roster, but Trautman is no lock to be available for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay. At the time he suffered his injury, Trautman received an estimated recovery timeline of 4-to-6 weeks, so he'll need to demonstrate he's healthy in practice this week if he hopes to be activated for the short end of that window. New Orleans will need to decide whether or not to activate him for the Week 15 matchup no later than Saturday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for roster moves.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Moves to IR

    Trautman (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Trautman's move off the 53-man roster was fully expected after Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Monday that the tight end sustained an MCL sprain in Sunday's 40-29 loss to the Eagles. He's expected to need 4-6 weeks to make a full recovery from the injury, so the Saints will likely be without him until at least late December. Trautman's move to IR comes at a particularly unfortunate time, as he was just beginning to carve out a more pronounced role in the team's passing attack with six or more targets in each of the Saints' past four games. New orleans will likely lean on a committee of Nick Vannett, Garrett Griffin and Juwan Johnson to replace Trautman, with Johnson representing the best pass-catching option of the trio.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Expected to miss time

    Trautman (knee) was diagnosed Tuesday with a sprained MCL and is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Saints haven't provided confirmation of Trautman's injury, but the tight end is now set to miss time beginning with Thursday's game against the Bills, Nick Vannett, Garrett Griffin and Juwan Johnson are slated to handle the team's tight end duties in the coming weeks.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Bothered by knee injury

    The Saints listed Trautman as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report due to a knee issue. Trautman wasn't known to have been dealing with an injury during Sunday's 40-29 loss to the Eagles, and it wasn't evident in his production either, as he turned in a 5-58-1 receiving line on eight targets. The tight end has taken on a heightened role in the passing game since Trevor Siemian came on in relief of injured starting quarterback Jameis Winston (knee) in Week 8, drawing no fewer than six targets in any of the Saints' last four games. Because New Orleans is facing a quick turnaround for Week 12 with a Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Bills, Trautman's listing on the injury report may just be an indication that the Saints plan to give him some extra maintenance. The Saints' Tuesday and Wednesday injury reports will provide a better idea whether or not Trautman is trending toward playing Thursday.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Becoming favorite target

    Trautman caught five of six targets for 32 yards during Sunday's 23-21 loss to Tennessee. While the final results weren't great, the heightened usage continues for Trautman with Trevor Siemian under center. After totaling 13 targets in seven games with Jameis Winston, Trautman has now seen 19 in three games with Siemian. While this increased attention has yet to translate to significant fantasy production, few other tight ends around the league have seen more opportunities over the past few weeks. With the Eagles' leaky defense on deck in Week 11, Trautman could be worth a roll of the dice for TE-needy fantasy managers.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Increased usage continues

    Trautman caught four of seven targets for 47 yards during Sunday's 27-25 loss to Atlanta. Trautman didn't do much before the fourth quarter, but on one drive he had four catches within six plays to help the Saints get their first touchdown, after which Trautman was unsuccessfully targeted on a two-point conversion attempt. That brings Trautman up to 13 targets in under two games with Trevor Siemian after averaging 2.2 in just over six games with Jameis Winston (knee), who will miss the rest of the year with a torn ACL. While Winston technically had higher upside than Siemian as a passer, Trautman's outlook would obviously benefit much more from someone who will more frequently throw him the ball.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Little usage as receiver again

    Trautman was targeted with one pass but did not record a catch during Sunday's 28-13 win over New England. Trautman logged over 80 percent of the offensive snaps for the second time in three games, but he again was an afterthought in the passing game after leading the team with six looks in the season opener. Unless he starts seeing increased usage as a pass catcher, he seems like nothing more than a touchdown-dependent fantasy option.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Leads team in targets

    Trautman caught three of six targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 38-3 victory over the Packers. Trautman led the Saints in targets on a day when Jameis Winston needed to throw only 20 passes, but he dropped two of them while fellow tight end Juwan Johnson caught all three of his targets for 21 yards and two touchdowns. While his high target share is encouraging, the second-year tight end will warrant fantasy consideration only in deeper leagues until he becomes more impactful as a receiver down the field.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Gets healthy for Week 1

    Trautman (ankle) wasn't listed on the Saints' injury report Wednesday. A 2020 third-round pick, Trautman was poised to take a bigger role in the offense following the offseason departures of Jared Cook and Josh Hill, but his first preseason in that role was less than desirable. First, Trautman wasn't targeted while playing 16 snaps on offense in the Saints' first preseason game. In New Orleans' second exhibition contest, he again was blanked before leaving the field on a cart with a left ankle injury. With an expected recovery timetable of 1-to-3 weeks, Trautman's Week 1 availability initially looked to be in the air, but his ability to avoid the first injury report of the campaign entirely clears him for Sunday's game against the Packers in Jacksonville.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Likely out 1-to-3 weeks

    Trautman (ankle) expects to miss 1-to-3 weeks, but he could have a different timeline after he visits a specialist Thursday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. Fellow Saints tight end Nick Vannett (knee) is out for 2-to-4 weeks, leaving Juwan Johnson, Ethan Wolf and Garrett Griffin as the Saints' healthy options at the position for the time being. Trautman, a third-round pick last year, still is the best chance the group has to produce a viable fantasy player for 2021, though his second-year breakout case took a hit after a slow preseason (zero targets in two games) ended early due to the ankle injury. It isn't clear if Trautman will even be ready for Week 1.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: MRI on tap

    Trautman will undergo an MRI on Tuesday after suffering an ankle injury during Monday night's preseason game against the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Trautman's initial X-rays came back negative, but he still was in mild pain after the game, per Schefter. The team should have more information on the severity of the injury after Tuesday's scans.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Leaves Monday due to injury

    Trautman injured his left ankle or foot during Monday's preseason game versus the Jaguars, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. Trautman didn't make a mark in the box score before he was carted to the locker room, per Katherine Terrell of The Athletic. With his health in mind, the Saints may not risk sending Trautman out there again, assuming he's cleared to do so. As long as he's sidelined, though, the team will trust in Nick Vannett, Juwan Johnson and Ethan Wolf to handle TE duties Monday.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Secondary role in rookie season

    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.
