Bad news for Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill. Trautman was/is expected to be the main catching tight end, while Vannett the main blocking tight end. Word out of camp has Juwan Johnson as a wild card following an impressive showing the past few weeks and could be the starting tight end to open 2021. The converted wide receiver saw a snap increase during New Orleans's Week 2 preseason game following injuries to Trautman and Vannett.
SEA TE Nick Vannett - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 at Carolina Panthers
Nick Vannett has only two catches the last two weeks and although he has a couple scores in recent weeks, his value has dropped. He will face the Panthers in a great matchup. Carolina is 30th in aFPA to tight ends. However, the recent production by Vannett limits his value. He should remain on the bench for Week 12.
