  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Scores once in 2022

    Saubert caught 15 of 24 targets for 148 yards and one touchdown while playing all 17 games in the 2022 season.

    Saubert finished a relatively quiet 2022 season, as he played at least 50 percent of offensive snaps just three times across 17 games. The veteran tight end provided solid depth at the position, while rookie Greg Dulcich emerged as the leader of the Broncos' tight-end corps for most of the season. Saubert is set to be free agent this offseason, but his dynamic skill set may be attractive to a new coaching staff in Denver ahead of the 2023 campaign. If the 28-year-old decides to return to the Broncos, he would likely continue to contribute in a depth role next season.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Will play Sunday

    Saubert (knee) is active Sunday against the Chargers.

    Saubert was unable to practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he'll take the field Sunday in the Broncos' regular-season finale. He'll likely fall behind Albert Okwuegbunam as the team's No. 2 option at tight end.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Questionable against Chargers

    Saubert (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season finale against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    A knee injury has cut into Saubert's practice reps. Fellow tight end Eric Tomlinson (ankle) is also questionable, leaving Albert Okwuegbunam as the clear No. 1 tight end for Denver in the season finale.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Still out Thursday

    Saubert (knee) didn't practice Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    For the second consecutive day, Saubert was held out of Week 18 prep as a result of the knee injury he presumably sustained in last weekend's loss to the Chiefs. He'll have one more chance to practice in any capacity Friday before Denver would be forced to tag Saubert with an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Chargers.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Saubert didn't practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Ellie Kinney of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Saubert played 23 offensive snaps and caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in Week 17, but he's sidelined to start Week 18 prep due to a knee injury. The extent of the injury remains unclear, but the backup tight end will have two more chances to practice before the team needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches three passes

    Saubert caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chiefs.

    Saubert operated as Denver's No. 2 tight end Sunday behind Albert Okwuegbunam. The 28-year-old played 24 of the Broncos' 70 offensive snaps, while Okwuegbunam played 37 snaps. In 16 games played this season, Saubert has caught 15 of 24 targets for 148 yards, all of which are career-highs. The 6-foot-5, 253-pounder should remain far off the fantasy radar ahead of a Week 18 matchup with the Chargers.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches two passes in loss

    Saubert secured both of his targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 22-16 overtime loss to the Raiders.

    Saubert continued to operate as the Broncos' No. 2 tight end Sunday behind rookie Greg Dulcich. With 27 offensive snaps, the veteran saw roughly half the playing time of Dulcich, who played 53 snaps in the contest. Saubert's limited opportunities in a struggling passing attack make him irrelevant for fantasy purposes. Barring an injury to Dulcich, the 28-year-old should be left off fantasy rosters heading into a Week 12 matchup with the Panthers.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Plays one offensive snap

    Saubert played one offensive snap and failed to see a single target in Monday's 19-16 overtime loss to the Chargers.

    After leading all tight ends in snaps in the past two games, Saubert took a major backseat to rookie Greg Dulcich in his debut. The veteran practiced in a limited fashion due to an ankle injury but was active for the game. His lack of involvement could be related to the injury, but it appears the coaching staff is confident in Dulcich, who impressed as the team's new No. 1 tight end. It's likely that Saubert's involvement in the offense will decrease and he'll be relegated to a depth role going forward. The 28-year-old should remain off the fantasy radar when the Broncos host the Jets in Week 7.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: In uniform Monday

    Saubert (thigh) is listed as active for Monday night's game against the Chargers.

    Saubert was limited in practice this week, but he'll give it a go Week 6 and figures to share TE work with Greg Dulcich, who came off IR on Monday. Meanwhile, Albert Okwuegbunam was made inactive by the Broncos.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Questionable entering Monday

    Saubert (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Chargers.

    Saubert managed to practice all week in limited fashion, which theoretically should put him on track to play in Monday's divisional battle. The veteran tight end easily doubled his total receptions in last Thursday's loss to the Colts, but he's been relatively inconsistent overall, with the Broncos content on using a four-man platoon to cover the position.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Logs limited practice Friday

    Saubert was a limited participant during Friday's practice due to an ankle injury.

    Saubert presumably picked up the ankle injury during last Thursday's loss to the Colts and has now had his reps capped on two occasions to begin Week 6 prep. He'll have one more opportunity Saturday to improve to a full participant before Denver needs to make a decision on his status for Monday's contest against the Chargers.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches five passes in loss

    Saubert caught five of seven targets for 36 yards in Thursday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Colts.

    Saubert once again led all Broncos tight ends in snap percentage, playing 56 percent of the team's offensive snaps. For the time being, it appears that the veteran has earned the trust of the Denver coaching staff and quarterback Russell Wilson, as his seven targets were the third highest in the Denver passing attack. Unfortunately, this bump in usage did not result in much for fantasy purposes with the offense continuing to struggle. Despite Saubert's climb to the top of the depth chart, the 28-year-old will be difficult to trust for fantasy purposes when the Broncos visit the Chargers in Week 6.
