The Broncos placed TE Greg Dulcich on IR with his hamstring injury. That knocks him out for at least the next four games and makes him droppable in most fantasy leagues. Adam Trautman will step in as Denver's lead TE but is unlikely to ascend beyond TE2 status.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders. He’s expected to miss multiple weeks with this hamstring injury. Adam Trautman should pick up some extra work with Dulcich out but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich is expected to miss "multiple weeks" with the hamstring injury he suffered in the season opener, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's the same hamstring that cost Dulcich the first five games and final two games of last year, per Schefter. "Broncos will take it slow," Schefter adds. The news makes Dulcich droppable in standard-sized fantasy leagues. Adam Trautman is left as Denver's lead TE and posted a 5-34-0 line on five targets in the opener. He's worth waiver-wire consideration for TE-needy teams in deep fantasy leagues.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson completed seven of 13 pass attempts before leaving Friday night's preseason opener. He hit WR Courtland Sutton three times, WR Jerry Jeudy twice, and TE Adam Trautman twice. Afterward, DNVR's Zac Stevens tweeted, "Those three are THE starters on the depth chart." No surprised for Sutton and Jeudy. But the work for Trautman does line up with his appearance ahead of Greg Dulcich on the "unofficial" depth chart. Dulcich looks like a guy with breakout potential based on his college production, some intriguing efficiency and usage from last year, and HC Sean Payton's words ahead of training camp about using Dulcich in a "Joker" role. But if Trautman continues as the No. 1 TE, Dulcich would see his playing time and opportunities limited. We'll certainly keep watching this situation through August but might have to consider knocking Dulcich down the fantasy football rankings a bit.

The Saints traded TE Adam Trautman plus a seventh-round NFL Draft pick to the Broncos for a sixth-rounder, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's noteworthy that HC Sean Payton's new team is acquiring a TE he drafted in New Orleans in 2020. Trautman's arrival crowds a TE room that already included Greg Dulcich, Albert Okwuegbunam, and journeyman Chris Manhertz. There's some potential for targets to get dispersed to the point that no Denver TE presents worthwhile fantasy value. But let's keep in mind that Trautman averaged just 20 receptions per season through three years after arriving in Round 3. That included just 18 catches for 207 yards last year. And then the team that drafted him sent him away for just a move up from Round 7 to Round 6 in the draft. Don't adjust your outlook for Broncos TEs just yet. You can check our numbers on the group now in our 2023 fantasy football TE rankings.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable. Johnson would be a desperation fantasy play. TE Adam Trautman (ankle) is also active.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. We’ll get New Orleans’ inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday, but Johnson shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups at less than 100%. TE Adam Trautman (ankle) is also questionable.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (ankle) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Bucs. That figures to vault TE Adam Trautman into the lead role and might also mean more action in the passing game for Taysom Hill.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Friday, putting him in danger of missing Monday night’s game vs. the Bucs. We’ll see how he’s listed on the final injury report on Saturday afternoon. Johnson’s absence would leave Adam Trautman as New Orleans’ lead TE and potentially mean a bigger pass-catching role for Taysom Hill.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (ankle) put in a full practice on Saturday and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll be back for Monday night's game vs. the Ravens after missing the previous 2 weeks. Trautman isn't a fantasy option but does put a slight dent in TE Juwan Johnson's outlook.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. TE Adam Trautman (ankle) is inactive. Johnson was added to Thursday's injury report and then limited in Friday's practice, so he carries elevated risk today.

Saints TEs Juwan Johnson (hamstring) and Adam Trautman (ankle) are listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. Johnson was added to Thursday's injury report and then limited in Friday's practice. Trautman returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. With both guys at less than 100%, try to avoid this situation in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson was added to Thursday's injury report with a hamstring and limited in practice. So his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders is now in question. Check back tomorrow for another update on Johnson. TE Adam Trautman (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. If he remains out for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders, TE Juwan Johnson will be a low-end spot-start option in fantasy lineups.

The Saints have ruled WR Michael Thomas (foot), WR Jarvis Landry (ankle) and TE Adam Trautman out for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. WR Chris Olave, on the other hand, should be set to return after missing Week 6 with a concussion. Trautman's absence boosts TE Juwan Johnson, who garnered 6 targets Sunday with Trainman leaving early.

Saints TE Adam Trautman is expected to miss Thursday night's game against the Cardinals after leaving Sunday's loss with an ankle injury, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "Early signs are that he's avoided a serious issue," Fowler adds. Juwan Johnson should benefit from Trautman's absence and be a TE2-level option for fantasy football lineups in Week 7.

Saints TE Adam Trautman hurt his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. He tried to return in the 2nd half but was unable to stay on the field. He's officially questionable to return.

Saints QB Andy Dalton completed 20 of 28 passes (71.4%) for 236 yards (8.4 yards per attempt) and 1 TD in Sunday's narrow loss to the Vikings in London. He spread the targets around, with WR Chris Olave drawing a team-high 7, WR Marquez Callaway getting 6, TE Juwan Johnson seeing 4 and no one else topping 3. Olave's 4 receptions and 67 yards led the team. Four other Saints caught 3 balls. Jarvis Landry came away with a mere 2 catches for 7 yards on 2 targets. We'll see about QB Jameis Winston's status for the Week 5 home date with Seattle.

The Saints are set to sign TE Chris Herndon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Herndon flamed out with the Jets and then caught just 4 balls for the Vikings last year. New Orleans' TE depth start is a bit fluid with Adam Trautman and Taysom Hill at the top, but we'd still consider Herndon a long shot to earn a significant role.
