Giants | May use committee at TE

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 14:21:43 -0700

The New York Giants may use a committee approach with their tight ends this season based on different situations, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. "I really think that there'll be a group of guys that'll play that'll help us in different situations and will be matched up according to the circumstance," Coughlin said. "I think that's where it's going to go. I think there's a lot of roles for that spot." TEs Larry Donnell, Adrien Robinson, Daniel Fells and Kellen Davis are expected to make the final roster, but no starter has been named.

Fantasy Tip: None of the tight ends have a lot of fantasy value, and none likely should be drafted in fantasy leagues. Robinson has the most upside and could be a waiver wire pickup during the season if he wins the starting job. Donnell could also have some value if he starts at some point.

Giants | Larry Donnell leading TE pack

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 08:31:35 -0700

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell is leading the positional race so far, according to Dan Graziano, who said Donnell has the surest hands of the group. Daniel Fells' (knee) injury has helped Donnell's cause. He's a good downfield blocker but needs to improve his run blocking at the point of the attack, Graziano said.

Fantasy Tip: This won't be an inspiring group for fantasy purposes. Wait this one out until someone shows he's relevant during the year.

Giants | Daniel Fells may have the edge

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 06:34:21 -0700

New York Giants TE Daniel Fells has received the first snap in 11-on-11 drills during the team's two days in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Kellen Davis and Adrien Robinson have also rotated at tight end with the first team, but Fells appears to be the leader. Fells is not draftable, and it is likely he won't hold the job should he win it. Robinson is just too talented to not cut into his work. Davis is a blocker.

Patriots | Zach Sudfeld taking first-team reps

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 16:08:23 -0700

New England Patriots TE Zach Sudfeld took the majority of first-team repetitions in practice Tuesday, Aug. 13, while TEs Daniel Fells and Jake Ballard were on the sidelines. Fells and Ballard are now battling for a roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Sudfeld is clearly now the No. 1 tight end in training camp, but it remains to be seen if it will stay that way entering Week 1. If Rob Gronkowski (elbow, back) opens on the PUP, Sudfeld will see extensive action in the offense. However, he's still a deep sleeper for fantasy purposes and is more of a TE3.

Patriots | Daniel Fells in the mix

Fri, 28 Jun 2013 19:31:39 -0700

New England Patriots TE Daniel Fells, who started 15 games for the Denver Broncos in 2011, is often the forgotten man in the mix at tight end because he is quiet and he rarely speaks with the media.

Fantasy Tip: Fells is a capable NFL tight end who could get a chance to shine with TE Rob Gronkowski (back) making his way back from surgery and uncertain for the opener, and TE Aaron Hernandez in the clink. However, Fells is still far from a dependable week in and week out fantasy starter even if he can secure a starting gig.

Patriots | Aaron Hernandez may not replace Rob Gronkowski

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 04:10:41 -0800

New England Patriots TEs Rob Gronkowski (forearm) and Aaron Hernandez (ankle) play two different positions within the team's offense. There is the traditional "Y" position, who is 6-foot-5 or taller, at least 255 pounds, can run but absolutely must be a standout blocker. He has to be a viable receiver, but not a great one. There is also the "F" or flex tight end, who is 6-foot-3 or taller, around 235 pounds, must be able to run and be an excellent pass receiver. He does not need to be a good blocker. If the team wants to stick with that system while Gronkowski is out, TEs Michael Hoomanawanui and Daniel Fells could fill Gronkowski's "Y" position, while Hernandez and TE Visanthe Shiancoe would serve as the flex tight ends.
