Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 10
After a less than stellar start to the season, Trautman is finally getting some consistent work. He caught 5 of his 6 targets against the Titans for 32 yards. It was the 3rd straight game with 6 or more targets.

Going forward, Trautman has the potential to be a viable fantasy option with this kind of volume.
Week 1
Trautman ran the second most routes and led the Saints with 5 targets. His stat line of 3-18 isn’t great, but had a bad drop in the red zone where he could have had a chance to score if he secured the catch. It looks like the Saints will lean more 2-TE heavy, so Trautman, like Juwan Johnson, will see a lot of work. Call us crazy, but Trautman could emerge as the best option in the coming weeks.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Trautman (6’5, 255) posted huge numbers from 2018-2019 at Dayton: 111 catches, 1,520 yards and 23 TDs.
  • At the Combine, he posted a sub-par 4.80-second 40 time. But he showed strong agility with a 6.78 3-cone and a 4.27 20-yard shuttle.
  • The Saints traded up to select Trautman in Round 3 (105th overall).
  • In year 1, he played 36% of the snaps — behind Jared Cook (43%) and ahead of Josh Hill (33%). Both 2020 teammates will play elsewhere this season.
  • He brought versatility with 29% of his snaps coming out of the slot; 17% coming out wide.
  • As a rookie, he caught 15 of only 16 targets for 171 yards and 1 score — no surprise given the depth chart and the jump in competition.
  • Trautman received Pro Football Focus’ best run blocking grade among TEs. If the Saints came away with a similar assessment, Trautman could play a 3-down role this fall.
  • TE Nick Vannett signed in the offseason. The 28-year-old journeyman will be a long-shot to steal substantial work from Trautman.
  • Jameis Winston will battle Taysom Hill for the starting job in training camp. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport believes Winston is the favorite entering the summer, and we project Winston to land the Week 1 job.
  • Winston would be a wild card under center after not playing in 2020. But his aggressive tendencies figure to help Trautman see targets.
  • The Saints lost 152 targets with the departures of Jared Cook, Josh Hill and Emmanuel Sanders. With the team still thin at WR, Trautman could push for 80+ targets if he develops quickly.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We know the Saints are high on Trautman after trading up for him in Round 3 of the 2020 draft. His quiet rookie year was explainable, and even then, he showed enough for the squad to essentially hand him a full-time role.

Boasting plus size and adequate athleticism, the main question is whether the small school product is ready for a year 2 jump. With an ADP near the tail end of most drafts, though, he’s an ideal TE2 stash.

Saints TE Adam Trautman was activated from the COVID list on Wednesday. He'll be back for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers but would be a desperation fantasy play.

The Saints on Wednesday placed TE Adam Trautman on the COVID list. If he misses Monday night's game against Miami, the Nick Vannett would be in position to lead New Orleans TEs. Juwan Johnson is also currently on the COVID list.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (knee) has been activated from IR. He returned to practice this week and figures to play vs. the Bucs on Sunday night. Trautman averaged 6.8 targets and 4.0 catches in his last 4 games -- but none of those came with QB Taysom Hill. He's worth considering in 1-game DFS contests but isn't a viable Week 15 season-long play.

Saints TE Adam Trautman is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after suffering an MCL sprain in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That makes the 2nd-year TE droppable in just about all redraft fantasy football leagues. We'll see whether Juwan Johnson can get back into the picture, but Nick Vannett and Garrett Griffin both played ahead of him at Philly. Vannett figures to be the next guy up.

Saints TE Adam Trautman isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He suffered a foot injury in the 2nd preseason game but is ready for this weekend's regular-season opener vs. the Packers. Trautman is a fine bench stash but shouldn't be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
