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.

The New England Patriots activated TE Visanthe Shiancoe (hamstring) from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list Saturday, Nov. 10. He is expected to be active in Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills with TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle) sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: Shiancoe will serve in a backup role, and will likely be used mostly in two-TE sets for use as an extra blocker. His fantasy ceiling is very limited.

Tue, 16 Oct 2012 11:04:24 -0700
New England Patriots TE Visanthe Shiancoe (hamstring) and DL Myron Pryor (pectoral) are both eligible to return to practice this week, but head coach Bill Belichick is still determining if either player will be healthy enough to be active in Week 7. However, Shiancoe, per the league's new rules, can't be activated for the active roster until Week 8. TE Michael Hoomanawanui will likely be cut to make room for Shiancoe.
