With the signing of Scott Chandler, Rob Gronkowski could see more snaps at receiver

Mass Live - [Full Article]

The tight end position is one of great intrigue as the Patriots enter 2015. Ever since Aaron Hernandez was cut, the Pats have been looking for that No. 2 tight end to pair with Rob Gronkowski.

Scott Chandler isn't a "move" tight end, though. At 6-foot-7, 260 pounds, he's similar to Gronk. He's a massive in-line tight end and a matchup problem for all safeties.

The addition of Chandler could mean more snaps at wide receiver for Gronk. The Pats offense was particularly effective a year ago when both Gronk and Julian Edelman were split together on one side.

Keep an eye on Fred Davis here, too. In the midst of the Deflategate madness, the Pats signed the troubled tight end to a one-year deal. It's a flier, for sure, but Davis is a "move" tight end with plenty of talent and plenty of past off-the-field issues.

Fantasy Impact: 

Chandler is no slouch. He produced in spots for the Bills and while he doesn't fit the profile of a typical "move" TE, the Pats could elect to use Gronk in that role while leaving Chandler inside.
