Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Saubert failed to record a reception in 30 offensive snaps during his rookie season out of Drake, but he has had a really strong showing in the early going of Falcons training camp, possibly leading to more opportunities to make an impact moving forward. A spot on the 53-man roster seems likely based on the way head coach Dan Quinn has been lauding his improvement as a pass catcher from year one to year two. Saubert's best-case scenario would involve him rounding out his game by becoming a sounder run blocker, which could potentially cement him as a surprise No. 2 option over Logan Paulsen.
Saubert, a fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft, made a name for himself in college, despite playing at little known Drake University. He was a reliable pass catcher there, and his 6-5 frame bodes well for a career at tight end. He'll slot in behind both Austin Hooper and Levine Toilolo to begin camp, but there's a chance he could end up as the second-string tight end with an impressive preseason. Saubert's main focus will be learning the offense and earning a spot on the active roster in his rookie season.
