Michael Mayer

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Mayer impressed as a freshman and took things to another level as a sophomore with 71 catches for 840 yards and seven touchdowns on 99 targets. Notre Dame’s offense often features the tight end but Mayer makes it a necessity as he is an athletic mismatch for any defense. The Irish have a fairly talented group of receivers but Mayer is the top option. That type of role is rare for tight ends and he is a close second to Brock Bowers in our rankings. There’s a steep drop-off at the position after Mayer so if you want a premium tight end like him, you’ll have to pounce early. Read Past Outlooks
Leads in receiving in defeat
December 2, 2022
Mayer continued to be the go-to receiver for the Irish as he caught eight passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns as Notre Dame fell 38-27 defeat to the Trojans on November 26.
ANALYSIS
The Notre Dame junior tight end is expected to file for the NFL draft after this season concludes so this or the bowl game could be his final contest for the Irish. Mayer has 809 receiving yards this season which leads Notre Dame on 67 catches and nine touchdowns.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Mayer just paced all freshman tight ends in targets (61), receptions (42) and yards (450) and could be in line for an even bigger role in 2021. The former five-star recruit could lead the team in targets after the Irish’s other top three targets moved on from the program. There could be a dropoff at quarterback following Ian Book’s departure, leaving question marks at the position, however. Still, even if quarterback play drops off, Mayer’s role is secure and his five-star talent can help overcome inefficient quarterback play and make him one of the top fantasy tight ends.
