2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Finally out from under Jason Witten's shadow, maybe Martellus can become a top 15 TE


(+) Eli Manning hasn't had a solid TE to throw to since a young Shockey


(+/–) Bennett said Romo played favorites, hopefully Eli likes him more than Tony did


(–) Hasn't scored a TD since his rookie campaign in 2008


(–) 4 seasons, 85 catches, 846 yards and 4 TDs is pedestrian for a guy that just signed a 1 year 2.5 million dollar deal


(–) "Rocked Out" in the weight room this offseason, and weighs 291 pounds as a result


(–) Hard to tout a player that had 17 receptions for 144 yards and zero TDs last season


(–) Eli has been digging his WRs of late

Martellus-bennett
Brady, Edelman, Bennett and Hogan All IN



Pyro's take: All of these questionable Patriots will be active today. And as you already know Gronk has headed to IR.

Fantasy Goo: Play the Pats as you normally would. Brady and Edelman are must starts and the rest are flex worthy.

Gronk Appears to be a True Game-Time Decision



Pyro's take: After not being able to travel and play with the team last week, it was looking bleak for Gronk's chances this week.

Fantasy Goo: Gronk was only able to practice on a limited basis this week. The Black Unicorn, on the other hand, was a DNP Thursday, but indeed got in a limited session on Friday. This is one to keep an eye for sure. Honestly, if Gronk goes, I like the pivot to Bennett. He is likely to be low-owned in DFS after a let down last week. In the past, he does much better when Gronk is on the field. One reason is certainly because often times, the opposing D will spend valuable resources and energy scheming to stop Gronk. That often leaves more opportunity for Bennett.

Guess Who's Back? Brady’s Back, Back Again And He Doesn't Skip A Beat As He Gets The Patriots Offense Into High Gear



Pyro's take: Tom Brady completed 28-of-40 passes for 406 yards and three touchdowns in New England's Week 5 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Goo: Brady showed no rust in his return and was in sync with the offense. The veteran QB was able to spread the ball around to multiple receivers, completing passes to seven different players. He looks like he is in midseason form.

Rob Gronkowski caught 5-of-7 targets for 109 yards. Although he did not score, he did provide his owners with confidence that the real Gronk is back and ready to roll for the remainder of the 2016 season.

Martellus Bennett caught 6-of-8 targets for 67 yards and three TD's. The Black Unicorn wasted no time showing Brady he is here in New England to produce. Bennett made the most of each target scoring three touchdowns on six receptions. Adding yet another option in this high powered offense look for Bennett to continue to provide another option for fantasy owners weekly.

Chris Hogan caught 4-of-5 targets for 114 yards.Seven-Eleven lead the Patriots in yardage on Sunday despite only getting five targets. It looks like he may become Tom's deep ball threat in the offense and the two were able to connect on two long passes of 43 and 63 yards. If the connection can continue then he is someone to target in fantasy leagues.

Julian Edelman caught five of 10 passes for 35 yards. Expect the double-digit targets to continue for Edelman as he is Brady's favorite receiver and the production should increase as well.

James White rushed five times for 26 yards and added four receptions for 63 additional yards. White was utilized as the third-down back for the Patriots this role has extra value when Tom Brady is QB as he likes to use his running backs in the passing game and there will be weeks that White may lead the team in targets coming out of the backfield it is safe to say he should have solid value in PPR formats.

Danny Amendola caught 2-of-2 targets for 11 yards he is listed as the WR3 but falls behind fellow receivers Julain Edelman and Chris Hogan as well as tight ends Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski in the pecking order for targets. There is not much to go around for Amendola and he is not a fantasy option unless an injury occurs.

LeGarrette Blount rushed for 37 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries.An early touchdown helped fantasy owners. Expect a similiar workload for Blount going forward and he will be the goal line back which will help to increase his value.

The Gronk still banged up



Pyro's take: ‏@NateUlrichABJ Injury report for #Browns and #Patriots - (hamstring) limited at Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Goo: The Gronk-Man is not 100%. Martellus Bennett and Gronkowski will be terrorizing opponents together sooner or later. With Tom Brady in the fold we know the defenses will be scared with the many weapons the Patriots will use week to week. Edelman, Amendola, Hogan along with Gronk and Bennett will be a tough go for opposing defenses due to Brady’s ability to throw players open. Bennett is a safer play but, Brady might rekindle the magic with Gronk right from the start.
(Welcome Back Kotter Theme Song) Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back… Tom Brady

Missing the Gronk

@AaronWilson_NFL Patriots list Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) as questionable

Pyro's take: @AaronWilson_NFL Patriots list Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) as questionable

Fantasy Goo: Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski will play together on the same field one day and it will be glorious. Patience will be tested for now. Tom Brady will make both tight ends shine in the Patriots double tight end offense. If you like to roster two tight ends you might want to grab Pitta or Tamme if they are available until Gronk shows that he is in to stay.

Gronk Out Yet Again - Fantasy Owners Cry Woe Is Me

d

Pyro's take: Well, here we go again. Gronk is out for Week #2

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots are 6.5 home favorites as they host the Dolphins. Bennett will obviously get more looks, but in 2015, only 6 teams gave up fewer points to the opposing TEs than Miami. The Black unicorn fell woefully shy of expectations last week. He was targeted 5 times but only caught 3 for 14 yards. There were 29 TEs that had better fantasy days. He just needs to convert a red zone TD for him to be fantasy relevant.

Gronk Is Out For Second Straight Week

Rob Gronkowski

Pyro's take: Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Gronkowski, who was one of nine Patriots listed as questionable this week, is now truly out for Sunday's contest, despite logging limited practices all week.

Fantasy Goo:The decision to not play Gronkowski was a long term play it safe decision for the Patriots. Since Gronk is indeed out for the second straight week Martellus Bennett should see an uptick in targets, another good thing for fantasy owners is New England's decision gave fantasy owners time to change him out for another tight end.

Gronk Spiked Patriots TE To Miss Opening Game

New England Patriots

Pyro's take: New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) is "not expected" to play in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. Gronkowski did not travel with the team to Arizona.


Fantasy Goo: With Gronkowski out in Week one, Martellus Bennett will draw the start against the Cardinals. Bennett has a solid matchup this week in Arizona. Their defense finished the 2015 campaign ranked 14th versus opposing tight ends in fantasy points allowed giving up 7.9 FPPG. Bennett should be considered a low-end TE1 in the upcoming contest.

Rob not going to play?

According to Pats beat writer mark Daniels "I'm hearing that Rob Gronkowski, Jonathan Cooper and Nate Solder weren't with their teammates on the flight to Arizona."

Fantasy Goo: Not being on the flight is not a good sign for groks availability for Sunday night. Make necessary arrangements by picking up someone now. If you want a chance to wait and see Sunday, look for someone like Jesse James on the waiver wire. Bennett would see a big bump in the rankings if Gronk were to sit as well.

4 games to shine for Jimmy?

Garoppolo checked in at 16-21, 181 yards and one TD, 12 of the completions going for first downs, with no interceptions.

Pyro's take: Garoppolo checked in at 16-21, 181 yards and one TD, 12 of the completions going for first downs, with no interceptions. "I think Jimmy's been pretty consistent through camp," Belichick said. "He's been taking care of the football and making the most of his opportunities."

Fantasy Goo: Jimmy had a very nice stat line. Fantasy owners are a bit worried about the passing game of the Patriots with Tom Brady out of action four weeks. The fear that I see is that the Patriots have too many mouths for young Jimmy to feed. Those fighting for the pigskin at the dinner table are Edelman, Amendola, Hogan, Gronkowski, Bennett and White out of the backfield. On draft day I plan to shy away from all of them except for one. I feel Martellus Bennett offers very good reward for his current ADP of 13th tight end in the 11th round of a 12 team league. I will even consider drafting two tight ends with Bennett being one of the. Jimmy will need a close target to get him out of trouble. Tom will use Martellus as he once did with Aaron Hernandez. Bennett = Bargain in 2016.

Gronk + Martellus = Gronk and Hernandez from 2010 - 2012

FOXBORO — Watching the Patriots offense operate without Rob Gronkowski usually isn’t much fun. But that was before Martellus Bennett showed up.

Pyro's take: FOXBORO — Watching the Patriots offense operate without Rob Gronkowski usually isn’t much fun. But that was before Martellus Bennett showed up.

Fantasy Goo: Aaron Hernandez had a noteworthy three year career where in 38 games played he caught 18 touchdowns. Can it happen again with Gronkowski and Bennett? Martellus is one of the better tight ends in the league and would have Tom Brady which is better than his prior quarterbacks. There's the "Y" tight end, which is the name for the traditional in-line tight end, and then there's the "F" tight end which is a movable player (move tight end). Most of us never even heard about Y or F until Gronk and Hernandez made those common labels. Gronkowski and Hernandez were possibly (I say yes) the best tandem of tight ends to ever play on the same roster in NFL history. I love Bennett’s current mock draft spot in 12 team leagues which is round 12 and the 14th TE selected. Make this Unicorn your fantasy in 2016.

Martellus Bennett Will Be A Big Factor In Patriots Offense

Tight end Martellus Bennett

Pyro's take: Tight end Martellus Bennett has come as advertised. Until Rob Gronkowski returned to practice Monday, the 6-foot-6, 273-pound Bennett was usually the first tight end through drills and he was one of the more impressive players on the field. He's going to be a big factor.

Even with the Patriots having the best tight end in the league in Rob Gronkowski, expect Bennett to get his share of targets. The Patriots could make two-tight end sets their base offense this year, which would give Bennett fantasy value despite not being at the top of the Patriots depth chart.

Says He'll Play

Martellus Bennett believes he will be out there on Sunday. According to beat writer Brad Biggs via twitter "TE Martellus Bennett says he will "probably" play Sunday night."

Pyro's take: Bennett was limited Thursday and missed Friday's session entirely. It sounds like Bennett is on the probable side, but that isn't a given. Check in on Sunday, to see if he is active.
