Barring a serious setback to his injured toe, Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is expected to play during Thursday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints. Gonzo has only missed one game in the past decade. He is listed as questionable for the game and was able to play through the injury last week. He caught seven passes for 63 yards in that game.
Gonzalez is once against a Top 5 fantasy TE. He's on pace for another excellent season across the board and Roddy White 's return and improved health can only help Gonzalez as defenses are forced to spread their attention elsewhere. Assuming he plays, the former Cal Golden Bear has to be in your starting lineup. The Saints are a tough matchup against opposing TEs. They've allowed just three TE TDs all year. Regardless, Gonzo is too involved with this offense to walk away from him.
