  • Broncos' Adam Trautman: Reuniting with HC in Denver

    Trautman was traded by the Saints along with a seventh-round draft pick to the Broncos on Saturday in exchange for a sixth-round selection, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The 2020 third-round pick reunites with former Saints head coach Sean Payton in Denver. Trautman never lived up to his draft status and couldn't really separate himself as the team's top option throughout his tenure in New Orleans, eventually ceding the starting role to Juwan Johnson in 2022. It remains to be seen if that will change much with promising second-year tight end Greg Dulcich (hamstring) atop the Broncos' depth chart and explosive athlete Albert Okwuegbunam also waiting in the wings, but the change in scenery could benefit Trautman if he's able to carve out steady snaps in his new locale.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: One catch Week 18

    Trautman caught his only target for 18 yards during Sunday's 10-7 defeat against Carolina.

    This final stat line is an accurate representation of the 25-year-old's limited role this season. On 503 offensive snaps over 15 games, Trautman posted 18 catches on 22 targets for 207 yards and a touchdown. This was a marked step down from his role during the 2021 season, when he recorded 43 targets on 615 offensive plays in 13 games. The 2020 third-round pick also never saw more than three targets in any game during the 2022 campaign, as he was consistently overshadowed by Juwan Johnson. Trautman's lack of production, despite the Saints' injury woes at wide receiver, does not bode well for his fantasy relevance heading into the 2023 season.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: First catch in four weeks

    Trautman caught his only target for 16 yards during Sunday's 20-10 victory versus Philadelphia.

    Trautman logged his first reception and just his second target since a Week 13 loss to Tampa Bay. The tight end finished as one of five Saints players to haul in their lone target behind the team's clear-cut top receiving trio of Rashid Shaheed, Chris Olave and Juwan Johnson. Trautman's primary role as a run blocker has only been reinforced by Johnson's continued production in the passing game over the second half of the season. Barring injuries or a plan to rest starters in Week 18 with the playoffs now out of reach, expect the Saints to continue feeding the ball to receivers other than Trautman.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Active in Week 16

    Trautman (ankle) is active for Saturday's Week 16 clash against the Browns, Katherine Terrell of reports.

    Trautman practiced in limited fashion throughout the week and will now suit up for Saturday's frigid interconference clash. Although weather conditions in Cleveland are expected to be extremely unconducive to the passing game, Trautman could still be the subject of a handful of extra targets while operating as the No. 2 tight end due to top receivers Chris Olave (hamstring) and Jarvis Landry (IR-ankle) being unavailable.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Gets questionable tag for Week 16

    The Saints list Trautman (ankle) as questionable for Saturday's game at Cleveland, Terrin Waack of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Trautman was listed as a limited participant on practice reports issued Tuesday through Thursday, with his lack of full participation presumably standing in the way of him entering the weekend minus an injury designation. If he ends up active for the Week 16 contest, Trautman will be the Saints' No. 2 option at tight end behind Juwan Johnson, but there could be an uptick in targets headed in both players' direction while New Orleans is without two of its starting receivers in Chris Olave (hamstring) and Jarvis Landry (ankle).

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Limited in practice

    Trautman (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

    Limited for a second straight day, Trautman should be able to play Saturday in Cleveland after playing through the same injury last week and handling 65 percent of the offensive snaps in a 21-18 win over the Falcons. He was targeted just once, which isn't unusual when fellow tight end Juwan Johnson is healthy.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Reps capped to begin Week 16

    Trautman (ankle) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice.

    Trautman dealt with the same injury last week and took a questionable tag into Sunday's game against the Falcons before gaining clearance ahead of kickoff. Though he took on a normal snap share (65 percent), Trautman drew just one target on the afternoon, while position mate Juwan Johnson (four catches for 67 yards and two touchdowns on six targets) commanded more attention from quarterback Andy Dalton despite playing eight fewer snaps than Trautman. Assuming Trautman is able to play through the ankle issue again this weekend in Cleveland, expect him to once again see most of his work as a blocker while Johnson serves as the Saints' preferred pass-catching tight end.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Serves blocking role Week 15

    Trautman did not catch his lone target during Sunday's 21-18 victory over the Falcons.

    Trautman returned to his limited role as a receiver as Juwan Johnson led the Saints in targets (six), receptions (four) and receiving touchdowns (two) in his return from a one-game absence due to an ankle injury. While Trautman's 36 offensive snaps still topped Johnson's 28, it's clear that New Orleans prefers the latter in a pass-catching role. Barring injuries, expect Trautman to have little fantasy value in the Saints' mediocre passing offense over the final three weeks of the regular season.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Playing in Week 15

    Trautman (ankle) is listed as active Sunday versus the Falcons, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Trautman experienced a season-high 80 percent snap share Week 13 with fellow tight end Juwan Johnson (ankle) sidelined, but it didn't translate to the box score (two catches for 28 yards on three targets). Following the Saints' Week 14 bye, Trautman and Johnson had their practice reps capped Wednesday through Friday and entered the weekend as questionable due to respective ankle issues, but both will be available to the offense Sunday. Johnson's overall 31-349-5 line on 49 targets this season gives him a leg up in terms of fantasy, as Trautman himself has mustered a 16-173-1 tally on 19 targets.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Questionable for Sunday

    Trautman (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Trautman and Juwan Johnson (ankle) followed the same practice schedule (limited participation all week) and now both are listed as questionable ahead of the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday. With Johnson out for the Saints' last game, Trautman handled a season-high 80 percent snap share and tied his season high of three targets, though it was Taysom Hill had more fantasy impact thanks to a 30-yard TD catch.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: Another limited showing

    Trautman (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.

    Both Trautman and Juwan Johnson (ankle) are operating under practice limitations this week, giving them one more chance to get back to all activity before the Saints potentially hand them a designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Trautman hasn't been targeted more than three times in a contest this season, even when Johnson was out Week 13 at Tampa Bay, so another absence from the latter wouldn't necessarily benefit the former, if he's active this weekend.
