Concludes first season in Denver

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-14

Trautman finished the 2023 season with 22 receptions on 35 targets for 204 yards and three touchdowns.

Trautman operated as Denver's No. 1 tight end in 2023, likely benefitting from fellow tight end Greg Dulcich (foot) landing on injured reserve for most of the season. The veteran Trautman produced modest numbers throughout the season, though his three touchdowns were tied with wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey for the third-most scores among all Broncos pass catchers. The 26-year-old will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and it remains to be seen if Denver will make him an offer to stay with the team.

One catch in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Trautman caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 16-9 win over the Chargers.

Trautman led all Denver tight ends with a 49 percent offensive snap percentage Sunday, yet he was unable to have much of an impact in the contest. The veteran has recorded just 21 catches for 183 yards and three touchdowns as the Broncos' No. 1 tight end this season. Trautman will look to bounce back in a Week 18 matchup with the Raiders.

One target in Week 16

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-27

Trautman failed to reel in his lone target in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Patriots.

Trautman was held catchless in a contest for the fifth time this season as the Broncos' No. 1 tight end. The veteran continues to play a minimal role in Denver's passing attack and saw fellow tight end Lucas Krull take on a larger role in the offense Sunday, totaling four catches on five targets for 28 yards and a touchdown. Trautman is not a trustworthy fantasy option heading into a Week 17 matchup with the Chargers.

One catch in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Trautman caught one of three targets for 24 yards in Saturday's 42-17 loss to the Lions.

Trautman's modest performance Saturday came on a day when the entire Denver offense struggled to get much going throughout the contest. The veteran played just 47 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps, his lowest snap share of the season. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Lucas Krull, who signed to Denver's 53-man roster Saturday, played just one fewer offensive snap (29) than Trautman. The 26-year-old Trautman has not been a major part of the Broncos' offensive plans this season, and splitting playing time would just diminish his fantasy utility even more. In addition, it's possible second-year tight end Greg Dulcich (hamstring) could also be nearing a return, further complicating matters. Trautman and the Broncos will host the Patriots in Week 16.

Hits pay dirt against Chargers

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-12

Trautman secured two of three targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-7 win over the Chargers.

The veteran tight end played 69 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps in the contest, yet he continued to be just minimally involved in Denver's scheme. Trautman's touchdown came on a 10-yard pass late in the fourth quarter, putting the game out of reach for Los Angeles. The score was Trautman's third of the 2023 campaign, marking a career-high in touchdowns for a season. With that said, the 26-year-old remains untrustworthy for fantasy purposes heading into a Week 15 matchup against the Lions.

Another underwhelming performance

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-05

Trautman secured one of his two targets for six yards in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Texans.

Trautman recorded just one catch for the second straight week, playing a minimal role in the Broncos' offense again. Despite operating as Denver's No. 1 tight end, the veteran isn't a significant part of the Broncos' offensive game plan each week. Trautman should remain out of fantasy lineups heading into a Week 14 matchup with the Chargers.

Finds end zone against Browns

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-28

Trautman caught his lone target for an eight-yard touchdown in Sunday's 29-12 win over the Browns.

Trautman was a non-factor for much of the contest until he found the end zone in the fourth quarter with an impressive catch, a play that was initially ruled an incomplete pass before coach Sean Payton challenged the ruling. The veteran tight end has had a quiet 2023 campaign as the Denver's No. 1 tight end, as his touchdown was only his second of the season. Trautman is averaging just 1.5 catches and 11.4 receiving yards per game, but with teammate Greg Dulcich (hamstring) still on injured reserve, he should maintain his role as the Broncos' starter. In such a limited role, the 26-year-old is not a reliable fantasy option in a Week 13 matchup with the Texans.

Targeted twice against Vikings

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-21

Trautman secured both of his targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Vikings.

Trautman put together another disappointing performance Sunday, although his 33 receiving yard total was his second-highest of the season. Despite playing in all 10 of the Broncos' games, the veteran tight end has amassed just 15 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown this season. Trautman is not a major part of Denver's offensive game plan and likely won't make for a reliable fantasy option in a Week 12 matchup with the stingy Browns defense.
