2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Tony Gonzalez, TE, Atlanta Falcons

2010 Stats
  70 rec. / 656 yds.
   6 TDs
2011 Projected
  63 rec. / 595 yds.
   6 TDs

Gonzalez is entering his 15th season in the NFL and is starting to show his age. Gonzalez had a good year last season, but statistically it was one of his worst as a pro. Gonzalez has been great for so long that even when he has a down year, it's still better than most tight ends. What Gonzalez brings to the Falcons is a solid redzone threat. That shouldn't change this year, even with the arrival of rookie wide receiver Julio Jones. Jones may take catches and yards away from Gonzalez, but not touchdowns. Gonzalez is no longer a must start each week, but he does still have fantasy football value, especially in leagues that require tight ends.
