Packers HC Matt LaFleur says TE Robert Tonyan is "absolutely" in the mix for the starting job. “We feel really good about Bobby,” LaFleur added. “I will tell you, he worked extremely hard this offseason. You can tell, his body, he looks like he's in great shape. He’s got a much better understanding of what we’re trying to do on the offensive side of the football." Tonyan has been a standout early in training camp while working with the 1st-team offense. We're still betting on 2019 3rd-rounder Jace Sternberger leading Packers TEs in fantasy points, but it's certainly a situation to monitor over the next few weeks.

That means if another team signs the restricted free agent to an offer sheet, Green Bay could match the offer or get a 2nd-round pick from the new team as compensation. We'll see whether any team likes Tonyan enough to go after him.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so don’t expect him to be at 100% today. That leaves Tonyan as a risk/reward TE1 in today’s plus matchup.
