Saubert signed a one-year deal with the 49ers on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Over the course of nine regular-season games for the Texans in 2023, Saubert (who before that suited up for one contest with the Cowboys) caught all three of his targets for 12 yards. With San Francisco, Saubert will work in a depth role behind George Kittle, and in that capacity it's unlikely he'll see enough targets in 2024 to merit fantasy consideration.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
2018
2017
Saubert put together a career-best 15-148-1 receiving line across 17 games with the Broncos last season. Though on paper he's now facing opportunity in a Dolphins offense that lost Mike Gesicki to the Patriots, the fact that Saubert has yet to compile a 150-yard campaign through six seasons in the NFL is telling. The 29-year-old could see his share of playing time as a rotational TE but anything more than that seems unlikely.
Saubert resigned with Denver on a one-year deal this offseason, after finishing the 2021 season with just eight catches on 12 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown. The 6-foot-5, 253-pounder should look to continue to be a contributor on special teams while also providing value as a blocker on offense, keeping him off the fantasy radar for the upcoming campaign barring an injury to Albert Okwuegbunam or rookie Greg Dulcich.
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.
