Saubert secured both of his targets for 36 yards in Saturday's 33-6 win over Minnesota.
ANALYSIS
Saubert gained most of his yardage on a 22-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter of the contest, with his involvement in the passing game a promising sign in his battle for a roster spot. According to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic, "Saubert appears to have the No. 3 tight end position locked down." If this becomes reality, the veteran will find himself behind incumbent starter Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam on the depth chart. With that said, Okwuegbunam did not play Saturday as he continues rehab from an ACL surgery last November. It remains unclear if Okwuegbunam will be ready for the season opener. If not, Saubert could find himself taking on a larger role in the offense. The 6-foot-5, 253-pounder will look to build upon this performance and his solid training camp when the Broncos visit the Seahawks in Week 2 of the preseason.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Saubert failed to record a reception in 30 offensive snaps during his rookie season out of Drake, but he has had a really strong showing in the early going of Falcons training camp, possibly leading to more opportunities to make an impact moving forward. A spot on the 53-man roster seems likely based on the way head coach Dan Quinn has been lauding his improvement as a pass catcher from year one to year two. Saubert's best-case scenario would involve him rounding out his game by becoming a sounder run blocker, which could potentially cement him as a surprise No. 2 option over Logan Paulsen.
Saubert, a fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft, made a name for himself in college, despite playing at little known Drake University. He was a reliable pass catcher there, and his 6-5 frame bodes well for a career at tight end. He'll slot in behind both Austin Hooper and Levine Toilolo to begin camp, but there's a chance he could end up as the second-string tight end with an impressive preseason. Saubert's main focus will be learning the offense and earning a spot on the active roster in his rookie season.
