Texans' Antony Auclair: Signing with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair is signing a contract with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It appears to be pretty much anyone's ballgame for the starting tight end job in Houston following the release of veteran starter Darren Fells this offseason. Auclair saw the majority of his reps on special teams last year in Tampa Bay and failed to catch his lone target on the season. Perhaps a change of scenery can jolt the fifth-year pro's career.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Another quiet season in '20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair failed to bring in his only target over eight games during the 2020 regular season, logging 70 snaps overall from scrimmage and another 83 on special teams.

The fourth-year pro mostly toiled in anonymity again in 2020, arguably more so than in his first three seasons, when he at least got on the board with a minimum of one reception. Auclair's snap counts on both offense and special teams were both career lows, and when he was in uniform, it was for his solid run-blocking and special teams play. The depth chart simply got too steep for Auclair to navigate this past season, as Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate proved capable of handling pass-catching duties at tight end almost exclusively after O.J. Howard (Achilles) went down for the season in early October. Auclair played 2020 on a one-year contract, and given his familiarity with the organization and system, it's certainly possible he's back for a fifth year in 2021.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Sits down for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Atlanta.

Tanner Hudson gets the gameday nod over Auclair, providing depth at the tight end position behind Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate. Auclair garnered his second start of the season last Sunday in a win over Minnesota, fielding 14 offensive snaps. The 27-year-old has been a nonfactor in the passing game throughout 2020, as he remains without a catch on one target this season.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Boost in snap share without results
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair logged a season-high 25 snaps from scrimmage but did not record any statistics in the Buccaneers' 46-23 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Auclair also played an additional 14 snaps on special teams, making it a busy afternoon for the fourth-year tight end. The 27-year-old's above-average run blocking is likely to continue to guarantee him active status, but he's highly unlikely to see any targets as long as Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate remain healthy in front of him.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Minimal role on offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair logged four snaps on offense without a target in the Buccaneers' 38-3 loss to the Saints on Sunday night.

The blocking tight end was active for the second straight week as the No. 4 option at the position, but he unsurprisingly served exclusively as an extra blocker for the ground attack. Auclair's role when active should continue to closely mirror that of Sunday night's, presently making him a non-factor in all fantasy formats absent multiple injuries at the position.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Three snaps in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair (calf), who was activated from injured reserve Saturday, played three snaps from scrimmage and another nine on special teams in the Buccaneers' 25-23 win over the Giants on Monday night.

The big tight end had an unsurprisingly small role on offense, as the Buccaneers kept four players at the position active. Auclair may usurp Tanner Hudson for the No. 3 tight end spot on some weeks moving forward, but that slotting isn't expected to equate to any meaningful fantasy production.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Back from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers activated Auclair (calf) from injured reserve Saturday.

Auclair has practiced for two weeks and will return to the lineup for Monday's game versus the Giants. The 27-year-old tight end didn't play an offensive snap in the only game he suited up this year, and he'll likely stick to special teams upon returning to the lineup since Rob Gronkowski, Cameron Brate and Tanner Hudson all have secured roles.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Nearing return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers designated Auclair (calf) for return Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction page.

Auclair has been out since Week 2 when he suffered the calf injury in a win over the Panthers. The team will need to officially activate him in order for Auclair to suit up, but this news confirms that the Laval product will return in the next three weeks. The Buccaneers could use the depth at tight end since O.J. Howard was ruled out for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Nearing return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Monday that Auclair (calf) is "close" to a return but may not be ready for Thursday's game versus the Bears, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Auclair is eligible to return to practice this week and could play in Thursday's matchup, but it sounds like he'll likely sit out another week before potentially returning in Week 6 against the Packers. The Buccaneers could use the depth at tight end since O.J. Howard is expected to be done for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair (calf) was placed on IR on Friday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Auclair has already been ruled out of Sunday's game against Carolina, and this move ensures that he will miss at least two additional contests. The depth tight end could return as early as Week 5 against Chicago on Thursday Night Football.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair (calf) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Panthers.

Auclair missed the last two practices of the week and will watch from the sidelines during Sunday's divisional bout. The 27-year-old TE is buried on the depth chart anyway and played strictly on special teams in the season opener.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Misses Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair (calf) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Auclair began the week as a limited participant, so Thursday's complete lack of activity could indicate that he's suffered a setback in his recovery. Of course, Auclair only contributed on special teams Week 1, so if he's forced to sit out Sunday's game against the Panthers, it won't have a noticeable impact on Tampa Bay's offense.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Re-ups with Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair agreed to a one-year deal with the Buccaneers on Monday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Auclair had just one catch in eight games last season, but in 2020 he'll continue to provide the Bucs' tight end corps with depth and blocking prowess.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers placed Auclair (toe) on injured reserve Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The move ends the 26-year-old's season, as the team needed to make room for newly signed outside linebacker Sam Acho. The blocking specialist drew only three targets in eight games, catching one pass for 11 yards.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Managing turf toe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair suffered a turf toe injury during Sunday's loss at Seattle, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Auclair saw season-high snap counts in each of the past two weeks and caught his first pass of the season for 11 yards Sunday. The 26-year-old would likely have returning to a reduced role with O.J. Howard (hamstring) expected to return Week 10 regardless, but he'll now be in danger of missing games.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Larger role on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair is expected to have an increased role in Sunday's game against the Titans with O.J. Howard (hamstring) out, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Howard was averaging 66 offensive snaps per game, so there's plenty to go around for both Cameron Brate, Auclair and Tanner Hudson. Brate figures to be the primary beneficiary, but Auclair is in line for 30-40 offensive snaps. The 26-year-old's fantasy value is still minimal considering he has just nine catches for 73 yards in 30 career games.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Sees one target in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair failed to come up with his only target in the Buccaneers' 32-31 loss to the Giants on Sunday.

The blocking tight end continues to draw active status on gameday over Tanner Hudson, who's arguably a more effective receiver than Auclair but not as accomplished in clearing paths in the running game. Auclair has seen a steady snap count on offense the last two games (47 combined plays from scrimmage), but Sunday's target was his first of the season. With O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate as the top two options at the position, Auclair figures to remain in his current role unless injuries were to strike the duo ahead of him.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair (calf) participated fully at Thursday's practice, Eduardo Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Auclair was limited Wednesday with a calf injury suffered during the preseason, but he looks set for Sunday's season opener, barring a setback. He will provide depth for the Buccaneers depth chart behind starters O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Leaves with calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair was forced out of Friday's preseason matchup with Cleveland due to a calf injury, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear how serious the injury is, although it would come at an unfortunate time for Auclair, who's reportedly shown improvement as a receiver over the offseason. If the 26-year-old misses time, Tanner Hudson would be next in line to see reps at tight end behind O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate.

Buccaneers' Antony Auclair: Making progress in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auclair showed considerable improvement as a receiver during the first week of OTAs, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

The third-year pro has primarily been utilized as a blocking tight end during his first two seasons, logging just 10 targets over that span. Auclair still has an uphill climb to earn targets barring injuries to O.J. Howard or Cameron Brate, but his 6-foot-6, 256-pound frame could make him an occasional option near the goal line.
