Falcons' Eric Saubert: Five receptions in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert tallied 48 yards on five receptions while playing in 16 games in 2018.

Although Saubert appeared in all 16 games for Atlanta, he was primarily a special teams player. He'll figure to see a similar role in 2019, barring he improves as a pass catcher and is able to move up the team's tight end depth chart.

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Two catches in loss to Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert registered two receptions for 15 yards during Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay.

With Logan Paulsen (knee/ankle) ruled out, Saubert garnered three of nine tight end targets, establishing a career-high with two receptions against Green Bay's No. 7 pass defense (225.0 yards allowed per game). Saubert has fielded 14.1 percent of Atlanta's offensive snaps this season, but that figure stands to increase substantially should Paulsen remain on the shelf for an extended period of time. Still searching for his first touchdown as a pro, Week 15 doesn't present much reason for optimism going up against an Arizona defense that's allowed just three tight end touchdowns all year (tied for fourth-fewest).

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Records catch in loss to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert caught one of his two targets, compiling 17 yards during Sunday's 28-16 loss to the Browns.

The second-year tight end was targeted just once between Week 1 and Week 4, but he's become more involved in the Falcons passing attack of late, with five of his six targets (and all three of his receptions this season) coming in Atlanta's past five games. Quarterback Matt Ryan looked to Saubert in the back of the end zone in a critical fourth-and-goal situation, trailing by 18 points early in the fourth quarter. Saubert was unable to haul in the pass, as he remains scoreless over the first 23 games of the NFL career. Upcoming in Week 11 is a matchup against a Cowboys defense that's allowed 53 tight end receptions this season (tied for fifth-most).

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Leads Falcons tight ends in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert paced Atlanta tight ends with two catches for 15 receiving yards in a 17-0 defeat to the Jets on Friday.

Though no Falcons tight end stood out in what proved to be a disastrous first showing for the offense as a whole (combined four receptions for 29 yards between Saubert, Austin Hooper and Logan Paulsen), the second-year man from Drake was the best of the bunch. Saubert hauled in both of his targets on the night, including a 10-yard reception from Matt Schaub that provided Atlanta with their only first down of the first half. He also provided some value on special teams, registering a tackle on former Falcon Andre Roberts during a punt return in the first quarter.

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Building momentum in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert has been impressing the Falcons coaching staff in training camp to this point, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Head coach Dan Quinn noted Saubert as one player who he will be focusing his attention on for Atlanta's preseason opener against the Jets, given the level of growth that the young tight end has exhibited from his first year in the league to his second. "I'm certainly looking to see how (Saubert) looks. He's somebody who has our attention at tight end," Quinn said after practice Wednesday. "He's really kind of turning into the pass-catching tight end that I hoped we'd see." Saubert has been listed as the No. 3 option at the position behind Austin Hooper and Logan Paulsen on the team's first published depth chart of the season.
