The future Hall of Famer has scored in three straight games. Since Week 12, the 49ers defense ranked close to average in fantasy points allowed to enemy tight ends. Start Gonzalez as a high-end fantasy TE2/low-end fantasy TE1. He plays Monday night.
Many fantasy owners wrote off Tony Gonzalez entering the 2012 season, but by the end of the year those same owners were kicking themselves. The 37-year-old posted his best season since joining the Atlanta Falcons in 2009, reeling in over 90 passes, racking up over 900 yards and finding the end zone eight times. That production was good enough for a third-place fantasy finish among tight ends. Yes, his age is a concern, but to this point Gonzalez hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down.
