Description: Former Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez reiterated that he didn't want to play anymore in response to a question from Ben Volin of the Boston Globe.
Insight: Gonzalez did say he had inquires from a number of teams in the offseason. He'll finish his 17-year career with 1,325 receptions for 15,127 yards and 111 TDs. He would probably still be a fantasy starter if he came back even at age 38.

Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is joining The NFL Today on CBS in 2014.
Insight: It looks like it's official this time - Gonzo's retirement talk is for real. The personable Gonzalez should be an excellent addition to the NFL Today team, but no one on the current Atlanta roster can do what he did at tight end. He'll finish his 17-year career with 1,325 receptions for 15,127 yards and 111 TDs.

Insight: Gonzalez acknowledged that he'd be interested in coming back for a contender during the stretch run next season. Tony G's last season in Atlanta certainly didn't go as planned as the Falcons slumped to 4-12 a year after going 13-3. The future Hall of Famer has only won one playoff game in his career.
 
12/8/2013 11:34:00 AM
Description: Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez will play Sunday against the Packers.
Insight: Gonzalez (62 catches, 653 yards, 5 TD) has been nursing a toe injury for a few weeks but has yet to miss a game. Even at less than 100 percent, he's still one of the better tight end options in fantasy.
 
12/1/2013 3:02:00 PM
Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Insight: Gonzalez hasn't cracked double-digit fantasy points in a month and has just one 100-yard day this season.
 
11/21/2013 7:45:00 PM
Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe) is active for Thursday's game against the Saints.
Insight: Gonzalez is averaging 45.8 yards per game over his last five games and scored just one touchdown in that span, so even though he'll be on the field his fantasy value isn't that of a top-five tight end.
 
11/21/2013 11:28:00 AM
Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Saints, but coach Mike Smith confirmed he's expected to play dispite the 50-50 tag.
Insight: Gonzalez went through the team's walkthrough Wednesday after missing practice the previous two days. He's averaging 45.8 yards per game over his last five games and scored just one touchdown in that span, so even though he'll be on the field his fantasy value isn't great.

Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Saints.
Insight: Gonzalez went through the team's walkthrough Wednesday after missing practice the previous two days. He's averaging 45.8 yards per game over his last five games and scored just one touchdown in that span.
 
11/17/2013 3:50:00 PM
Description: Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez' third catch on Sunday gave him 50 receptions for the season and he's done that for 16 consecutive seasons.
Insight: Gonzalez has been a Hall of Fame tight end for a long time. This year isn't any different.
 
11/17/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez is active Sunday at Tampa Bay despite a toe injury.
Insight: Gonzalez has had poor production in three of the last four games as he has had to stay in to block more often due to Atlanta's offensive line issues. However, he's still a TE1 due to the lack of other viable options at the position.

Description: Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez was back at practice Friday but only in a limited capacity. SOURCE: Vaughn McClure, ESPN
Insight: Clearly his toe is still bothering him. Don't be surprised if Gonzalez sits Sunday against Tampa Bay.
 
11/14/2013 10:04:00 PM
Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez didn't practice Thursday but he's hoping he will on Friday. SOURCE: Falcons on Twitter
Insight: Gonzalez injured his toe in last week's loss to the Seahawks. Atlanta's next opponent is the 1-8 Buccaneers. Gonzalez had two catches for 30 yards against them in Week 7.
 
11/13/2013 3:11:00 PM
Description: Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe) missed practice Wednesday, according to Vaughn McClure of espn.com.
Insight: Gonzalez was seen limping around the locker room with a toe injury after Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Gonzalez turned in one of his worst outings of the season on Sunday, catching just three passes for 29 yards. He's had to stay in and block far more often due to issues with Atlanta's offensive line.
 
11/11/2013 3:26:00 PM
Description: Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez is dealing with a toe injury and should be considered questionable for Week 11.
Insight: He was seen limping around the locker room after Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Gonzalez turned in one of his worst outings of the season on Sunday, catching just three passes for 29 yards. Coach Mike Smith said he would know more on Wednesday.

Description: Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez may be dealing with a toe injury. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: He was seen limping around the locker room after Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Gonzalez turned in one of his worst outings of the season on Sunday, catching just three passes for 29 yards. The last thing the 2-7 Falcons need right now is another injury.
 
10/29/2013 11:32:00 AM
Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez said he would be open to a trade if he went to a contending team, according to a Vaughn McClure report.
Insight: The Falcons have said they weren't going to trade the future Hall of Fame tight end, but with the season pretty much over for Atlanta they might re-think the strategy. Gonzalez will retire after the season and the Falcons could use him to get more assets. Perhaps the Packers, who lost Jermichael Finley, would be a good landing spot for Gonzalez.
 
10/20/2013 5:15:00 PM
Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez only saw four targets and had two catches for 30 yards Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Insight: With Julio Jones and Roddy White out, Tony G was expected to be Matt Ryan's No. 1 passing option but the Bucs weren't going to let him beat them. He remains a TE1.
 
10/16/2013 10:26:00 AM
Description: Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez is expected to be Matt Ryan's No. 1 receiving target with Roddy White and Julio Jones out of the lineup Sunday against Tampa Bay. SOURCE: Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: White (hamstring) technically hasn't been ruled out yet but even if he does play Sunday, he figures to be very limited. It's a dream matchup for Tony G as the Buccaneers are still winless at 0-5. Look for the 13-time Pro Bowler to be a top-five fantasy tight end in Week 7.
 
8/21/2013 9:58:00 AM
Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, who was allowed to miss the first part of training camp, apparently arrived in good shape and will play in Saturday's exhibition game.
Insight: The consumate pro, Gonzalez should be ready when the whistle blows. He can still compete at a high level and knows the plays (93-930-8 in 2012), so didn't really need five weeks to prepare.
 
8/6/2013 11:16:00 AM
Description: Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is only scheduled to play in the final two exhibition games, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution report.
Insight: Don't discount his value when you fail to see him in the first two games. Gonzalez can still compete at a high level and knows the plays (93-930-8 in 2012), so doesn't really need much time to get ready.
