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. 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 was signed to Denver's 53-man roster Saturday, played just one fewer offensive snap (29). 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 further. In addition, it's possible Greg Dulcich (hamstring) could be nearing a return, further complicating the playing-time situation. Trautman and the Broncos will host the Patriots in Week 16.
