Until Vannett finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Titans' Nick Vannett: Traveling to Tennessee

    The Titans signed Vannett on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports. The veteran tight end has spent time with six different teams across his eight-year career, and he's now headed to Nashville after agreeing to terms with the Titans. Vannett most recently played with the Chargers, tallying 125 offensive snaps across eight games and recording one reception for three yards in 2023. Expect the 31-year-old to compete for a depth role in Tennessee's tight end room as the offseason progresses.

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Will play Sunday

    Vannett (back) is active Sunday against the Broncos. Vannett has been nursing a back injury the last couple of weeks, but he'll continue to play through the injury again in Week 17. With Donald Parham (coach's decision) once again inactive, the Ohio State product should be the Chargers' No. 3 option at tight end.

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Could play Week 17

    Vannett (back) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos. The veteran tight end was able to play through his back issue in Week 16, and after two limited sessions to begin the Chargers' week of practice, he has a shot to suit up Sunday. If Vannett is unable to play in Week 17, expect Donald Parham to see increased opportunities as a reserve option in Los Angeles' TE room.

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Ready for Sunday

    Vannett (concussion) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Vannett was able to log full practice sessions both Thursday and Friday after limited work Wednesday, and it now seems as if he's had enough time to move past his concussion. The 30-year-old has appeared in only three games for Los Angeles this season, and he'll likely serve as the team's No. 4 tight end in Week 14.

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Vannett (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Vannett has been dealing with the aftermath of a concussion presumably suffered Week 11 against the Packers, and he's been held out of each of the Chargers' past two games. Though it's not clear if he's cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, the tight end's limited practice session Wednesday is a positive sign of progress after he logged a trio of DNPs during prep last week. Vannett is behind Gerald Everett, Donald Parham and possibly Stone Smartt in Los Angeles' tight end pecking order, and he hasn't logged more than 20 percent of the team's offensive snaps in any of the three games in which he's played thus far.

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Misses Wednesday's practice

    Vannett (concussion) didn't participate in the Chargers' practice Wednesday. Vannett remains in the concussion protocol after missing last week's loss to the Ravens. The 30-year-old still needs to clear protocols in order to play versus the Patriots on Sunday.

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Missing Week 12

    Vannett (concussion) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Ravens. The veteran tight end was held out of practice all week with a concussion, so it's not a surprise that he'll be inactive for Week 12's contest. Vannett has appeared in three games with the Chargers since signing with the team's active roster in early November, playing 59 total snaps (34 offensive and 25 on special teams).

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Vannett (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday. Vannett popped up on Wednesday's injury report with a concussion and will now need to clear the concussion protocol before he's eligible to return to the field. With Gerald Everett still dealing with a chest injury as well, the Chargers are in danger of being short-handed at tight end for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens.

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Joins active roster

    The Chargers signed Vannett to their active roster Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Vannett joined the Chargers' practice squad on Aug. 31 after being cut by the Texans ahead of the 53-man roster deadline. The Chargers are the sixth team Vannett has played for since he entered the league as a third-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He'll add depth at the tight end position behind Gerald Everett -- who missed Sunday's game against the Bears due to a hip injury -- Donald Parham and Stone Smartt.

  • Nick Vannett: Catches onto practice squad

    Vannett signed with the Chargers' practice squad Thursday, Gavino Borquez of USA Today reports. Vannett was released by the Texans on Tuesday after joining the team on Aug. 2. The 2016 third-round pick out of Ohio State played with both the Saints and Giants last season where he registered six catches for 55 yards in nine games. He'll acclimate himself to the Chargers' playbook as he awaits an opportunity to be called up to the team's active roster.

  • Texans' Nick Vannett: Heading to Houston

    Vannett is in line to sign with the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. The veteran tight end will join his sixth team in his career and his third team since the beginning of the 2022 campaign. Vannett is coming off a season during which he played with both the Saints and Giants, recording six catches for 55 yards in nine appearances. He'll most likely serve as more of a blocking and special teams guy for Houston ahead of the coming season.

  • Giants' Nick Vannett: Catches two passes Week 18

    Vannett made two catches on four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. Vannett came into the contest with only two catches over his past five games, and he equaled that total with a pair of receptions in a meaningless contest for the Giants. Usual starting tight end Daniel Bellinger was held out in anticipation of the postseason while Lawrence Cager, who hadn't played since Week 15, was the team's leading receiver with eight catches for 69 yards. Bellinger has been playing almost every offensive snap when healthy, so Vannett will likely return to a minor role against the Vikings in next weekend's wild-card contest.

  • Giants' Nick Vannett: No injury designation Thursday

    Vannett (shoulder) was not listed with a game status ahead of Saturday's tilt against the Vikings. Vannett popped up with a shoulder injury on Tuesday's injury report, though it's unclear when or how this issue first arose. However, the 29-year-old should be ready to suit up again despite remaining limited in each practice ahead of Saturday's game versus Minnesota. Vannett has caught two of his three targets for 24 yards over the past two games, and he should continue to serve as the Giants' No. 2 tight end behind Daniel Bellinger.

  • Giants' Nick Vannett: Limited at practice Tuesday

    Vannett (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice Tuesday ahead of Saturday's game at Minnesota, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Vannett made his second grab of the season at Washington on Sunday night, but he played a much smaller share of snaps than in Weeks 13 or 14, which suggests he may have sustained his shoulder injury during that game. If Vannett can't go Saturday, Lawrence Cager would probably operate as the Giants' second tight end.

  • Giants' Nick Vannett: Nets 15 receiving yards Sunday

    Vannett brought in his only target for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win against Washington. Daniel Bellinger (62 offensive snaps) remained New York's clear top tight end and received four targets, but he managed only one catch for four yards in the big victory. Vannett saw a much smaller role with just 10 snaps and one target, but he outgained Bellinger thanks to a second-quarter 15-yard reception. Vannett has two catches for 24 yards in his three games as a Giant, and his fantasy value is nonexistent given his minimal opportunities behind Bellinger.

  • Giants' Nick Vannett: Makes first catch as Giant

    Vannett caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Eagles. Vannett's first catch since joining New York came late in the fourth quarter on a nine-yard toss from Tyrod Taylor. At that point, the game was already out of reach for the Giants, and starting tight end Daniel Bellinger had been pulled with a rib injury. Bellinger's status for Week 15 is uncertain due to the issue, and Vannett would likely step into the starting role if the rookie is unable to play against Washington on Sunday.

  • Giants' Nick Vannett: No targets in Giants debut

    Vannett did not get any targets against Washington in Sunday's 20-20 tie despite taking the field for 45 percent of the Giants' offensive snaps. Vannett made his debut with New York after coming over from New Orleans in late November. He was on the gridiron often Sunday but worked primarily as a blocker. Vannett did haul in a four-yard pass in the fourth quarter, but the play was called back due to a holding penalty. Rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger played all but two of the Giants' offensive snaps in the tie and caught five passes for 24 yards, emphasizing his role as the team's primary option at the position.

  • Giants' Nick Vannett: Joining active roster

    The Giants signed Vannett to their active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus Washington, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. With starting tight end Daniel Bellinger (eye) listed as questionable for Week 13, the Giants saw fit to add Vannett to the 53-man roster to provide some depth at the position. He has two catches for 13 yards on two targets through three games in 2022.

  • Nick Vannett: Waived by New Orleans

    The Saints cut Vannett on Saturday, John Hendrix of reports. Vannett made three appearances for the Saints this season, catching both of his targets for 13 yards across 63 offensive snaps. New Orleans also waived tight end J.P. Holtz and signed Yasir Durant and Bryce Thompson to fill the empty roster spots.

  • Saints' Nick Vannett: Inactive Sunday

    Vannett (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Buccaneers, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. Vannett was also inactive in Week 1, as the team still has Adam Trautman, Taysom Hill and Juwan Johnson ahead of him.
