2017 Fantasy Outlook
Braunecker signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent last year, and since tight end can be a difficult position for players to acclimate to at the NFL level, it wasn't a major surprise that he caught just four passes for 41 yards. While he saw limited action once Zach Miller suffered a season-ending foot injury in Week 11, Braunecker was unable to take over receiving duties from Daniel Brown. In the offseason, the team added free-agent signee Dion Sims and second-round draft choice Adam Shaheen, which could place Braunecker in a battle for a roster spot. Braunecker will need a number of situations to break his way to build up value in 2017.
