49ers Sign Eric Saubert

The San Francisco 49ers signed free-agent tight end Eric Saubert to an undisclosed one-year deal on Monday. Saubert was initially drafted in the fifth round (174th overall) by the Atlanta Falcons in 2017 out of Drake. The 29-year-old spent the first two years of his NFL career in Atlanta before stops with the Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans. He was with the Cowboys and Texans in 2023 and caught all three of his targets for 12 yards in 10 games (one start). Saubert has 36 career receptions on 55 targets for 292 yards and two touchdowns in 84 games (16 starts) in his seven NFL seasons. In San Francisco this year, Saubert will operate as tight end depth behind starter George Kittle alongside Brayden Willis, Cameron Latu and Jake Tonges.

Brevin Jordan, Eric Saubert In Line For Bigger Roles in Week 13

Houston Texans tight ends Brevin Jordan and Eric Saubert will see bigger roles in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos with Dalton Schultz (hamstring) already ruled out for the contest. Jordan will likely fill in as Schultz's replacement on Sunday, while Saubert will act as the TE2 for Houston. Both tight ends have a great matchup in Week 13 against a Broncos secondary that is giving up the most fantasy points per game to tight ends this season. Jordan should have more of an impact in this game but should only be started in deep formats or tight end premium leagues.

Texans Sign Eric Saubert Off Cowboys Practice Squad

The Houston Texans signed tight end Eric Saubert off the Dallas Cowboys practice squad on Tuesday. Saubert played with the Cowboys in Week 8, playing just 14 special teams snaps. But since Houston is dealing with several injuries to its tight end group, they signed the 29-year-old for depth purposes. With Teagan Quitoriano (groin) placed on the injured reserve list and Brevin Jordan (foot) expected to miss some time, Saubert will likely backup starter Dalton Schultz. However, he doesn't carry much fantasy value, even in tight end premium leagues.
