27-Year-Old Tight EndTE
Green Bay Packers
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Despite playing more snaps on special teams than offense through his first two NFL seasons, Tonyan was quick to pounce after Jimmy Graham's departure last spring created an opening in Green Bay. The young tight end scored his first touchdown of 2020 in Week 2, adding another Week 3 and three more Week 4. Tonyan then had a five-game TD drought ... before scoring exactly one in five consecutive games Weeks 11-15. He saw more than five targets in a game only twice all year, making up for it with an 88.1 percent catch rate (first among TEs), 9.9 YPT (third) and 11 TDs (T-1st). Some of the efficiency stats are small-sample outliers - including seven TDs on 11 red-zone targets - but it's also true that Tonyan and QB Aaron Rodgers both played well last year, and the Packers still don't have much else at tight end.

May 27, 2021
Tonyan signed his second-round tender with the Packers on Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Tonyan has been an attendant of OTAs, so it makes sense to see him sign his contract tender. If the 27-year-old can repeat last season's production, when he had 52 catches for 586 yards and 11 touchdowns, he'll position himself for a sizeable payday come 2022. Of course, a 21.1 touchdown rate may not be sustainable, but Tonyan does stand to once again serve as one of Green Bay's main weapons in the red zone alongside Davante Adams and Aaron Jones.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Tonyan caught six more passes last year than he did in 2018 despite playing in five fewer games, but he still never found himself playing more than a complementary role in the Packers offense. He's a good bet to hold onto a roster spot on a team that values tight ends, but if all players at his position are healthy it's tough to see him any higher than fourth on the depth chart.
Tonyan joined the Packers late in the 2017 season, and he showed enough after that to secure a spot on last year's roster coming out of training camp. Other than a 54-yard touchdown in Week 11, Tonyan did not do much, catching just three other passes. He remains in the conversation for 2019, but will be behind veterans Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis and will draw competition from rookie Jace Sternberger. The Packers kept four tight ends on the roster last season, though, and did not add any other veterans, which gives Tonyan a good chance to remain on the roster if four players at his position again make the cut for Week 1.
