Patriots | Jake Ballard not fully practicing

New England Patriots TE Jake Ballard (knee) has not fully participated during the two organized team activities that the media has watched this offseason but has shown good hands during offensive drills. He also has been running with a noticeable limp.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard could get a bigger role than expected this season if he is healthy because of the injuries to Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm) and TE Aaron Hernandez (shoulder). At this point, Ballard probably is not worthy of a draft choice but he would be a waiver wire target if either Gronkowski or Hernandez miss time in the regular season.
