Draft note
by John Paulsen
Trautman caught an impressive 15-of-16 targets for 171 yards and a touchdown as a rookie, playing behind Jared Cook. With Cook gone, Trautman’s playing time should spike to 80%+ and there are plenty of targets up for grabs in New Orleans. As a senior at Dayton, Trautman caught 70 passes for 916 yards and 14 touchdowns, resulting in an insane 97th-percentile College Dominator score, per Player Profiler. Not only did the Saints let Cook walk, but they didn’t re-sign Josh Hill either, so Trautman’s primary competition for snaps consists of Nick Vannett, Garrett Griffin and somebody named Dylan Soehner.

NO TE Adam Trautman - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Adam Trautman saw very limited time in 2020, but he showed a lot of promise in that short time. He caught 15 of his 16 targets for 171 yards and a touchdown. Jared Cook was the main tight end in New Orleans for a few years. Cook is now a Charger, meaning the TE1 role in New Orleans is all for Trautman and he is ready to burst onto the scene, especially early on with Michael Thomas sidelined as he recovers from ankle surgery.

Fantasy Downside

As with the rest of the Saints' skill position players. not having Drew Brees will sting a bit. How he connects with Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill early on will be very telling. The Saints may also be looking to run the ball more, and even in the passing game, Trautman will still be behind Alvin Kamara in the pecking order.

2021 Bottom Line

Trautman is a very popular sleeper tight end in fantasy circles this year. He's also very cheap in drafts. with an ADP near the 14th round. It's a small price to pay for a tight end that could become an early favorite in the Saints' offense.
