Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent TE Robert Tonyan was tendered at the second-round level Tuesday, March 16. The tender is expected to be worth $3.384 million.
Huddle Up: It pretty much guarantees Tonyan will be back with Green Bay and is welcome news for fantasy owners after seeing some high-profile free-agent tight ends lose fantasy value during the legal tampering period. Tonyan could easily be a top-five tight end again in 2021 if he can maintain his incredible touchdown rate, which is a strong possibility if Green Bay doesn't add anyone of note at receiver opposite Davante Adams.

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent TE Robert Tonyan likely will receive the second-round tender offer this offseason.
Huddle Up: Tonyan was a solid contributor in the passing game this season and should have a similar role next season. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan was the only tight end to have 50 or more receptions without a drop in 2020.
Huddle Up: Tonyan finished with 11 receiving touchdowns, tying him for the most among tight ends and fifth in the NFL. While he might not pile up as many yards as some other players at the position, his nose for the end zone should keep him firmly in the TE1 mix in 2021.

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan had one reception for 17 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: It was a bad time for Tonyan to author one of his quietest games of the season and break his five-game TD streak -- Rodgers did look for him in the end zone but the throw sailed just out of his reach. One of his better games of the year came against Chicago (5-67-1) in the first meeting between the teams, though, and Tonyan should be playable again as a TE1 in the season finale.

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan caught all three of his targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 versus the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Tonyan came up just short of the end zone on his first catch of the game on the opening drive. Aaron Rodgers made sure the big man got his score on the next play though with a quick 1-yard hook-up on a rub route. The touchdown was Tonyan's 10th of the season - more than any other tight end in the league entering Sunday's action. The Indiana State product's consistent touchdown production has made him a solid TE1 in fantasy in recent months, and he needs to be treated as such in Week 16 versus the Tennessee Titans.

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan finished with five receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown on five targets Sunday, Dec. 13, at the Detroit Lions in Week 14.
Huddle Up: The scoring streak was extended to four games, and the Packers have a meeting with the Carolina Panthers in Week 15. It's a top-10 matchup for the position, and there's no reason to get away from Tonyan in his breakthrough season.

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan had four receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Dec. 6.
Huddle Up: Tonyan extended his touchdown streak to three games and now has eight TD receptions on the season (tied with Travis Kelce for most among tight ends). He was also targeted on the third-down play that sealed the victory, and he has clearly earned Rodgers' trust. While his yardage totals aren't great, Tonyan should be a TE1 against the Lions in Week 14.

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan had five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Nov. 29.
Huddle Up: Tonyan has been up and down this season, but he now has seven touchdowns, including scores in back-to-back games. While there's some downside risk to be sure, Tonyan could reasonably function as a low-end TE1 at this point.
