Matt Ryan has had to deal with a ton of inconsistency on his offense all season. The peaks and valleys of Michael Turner and the running game. The injuries that have ravaged rookie wide receiver Julio Jones all season. The drops that have plagued star wideout Julio Jones.
The one constant? Future hall of famer Tony Gonzalez being the reliable receiver option for the Falcons offense.
From a fantasy perspective, Gonzalez will be pitted against a Tennessee defense that has given up the 7th most fantasy points to Tight Ends this season. In fact, the Titans are giving up the 4th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends over the last five weeks.
Let Tony Gonzalez cook.
Per Numberfire,Gonzalez is projected to get 4 catches and 50 yards. I'd suspect a bigger game than that for the former Cal power forward.
