Maybe Nathaniel Hackett and company are satisfied with the way the tight ends are playing, but it doesn’t exactly feel like they’ve settled into a good groove rotation-wise yet. That’s likely because they don’t have a guy who can do absolutely everything at a high level — and, to be fair, those guys are rare.
Albert Okwuegbunam isn’t trusted in the run game and one-dimensional tight ends end up not playing very much. Just the nature of the position. He played only one snap against Las Vegas and wasn’t in the game for a single run play against San Francisco. At one point he was tasked with getting his hands on Nick Bosa and… it didn’t go well.
The story went on to say Russell Wilson clearly trusts Saubert in the passing game, but he’s very rarely the No. 1 option in a concept. Denver’s not scheming him up the way San Francisco does for George Kittle, Kansas City for Travis Kelce, etc. Tomlinson is primarily a blocking tight end and he’s a physical player, the story added. The best bet of an emerging TE could be Dulcich, who's currently injured but should be back soon. At least in deeper leagues, he may be worth a stash at this point.
