The Packers head to Indianapolis this weekend and will face off against a Colts defense that has made life difficult for opponents at nearly every offensive position this season. Robert Tonyan may be in for a long day, as the Colts have allowed the fewest points this season to opposing tight ends. Is he worth considering as a starter despite this nightmare matchup? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Packers TE Robert Tonyan

Robert Tonyan is averaging 10.2 points per game this season, but that average received a significant boost from a monster 33.8 point performance in Week 4. Since then, Tonyan has only managed to reach double digit scoring once, with 12.9 PPR points in Week 8. Tonyan has been disappointing since the Packer’s Week 5 bye and his performance is unlikely to improve against the toughest opponent in the league. Tonyan should remain on the bench in standard leagues this week, but given the death of fantasy reliability at the position, Tonyan can be considered a mid-tier TE2 in deep leagues or for teams in need of a bye week fill in.
