The return of Burkhead could affect both Sony Michel and James White, as Burkhead can handle carries and catch passes out of the backfield. The Pats also like him on special teams but it's yet another weapon in the Patriots arsenal. It may be best to at least wait a week to see how they utilize him before plugging him in lineups.
MIA TE Dwayne Allen - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook
The Dolphins brought in Allen this season, and he has a chance for some playing time on this offense. He had a few good seasons with the Colts, including an eight-touchdown season.
Allen is more of a blocking tight end than a receiving tight end, and hasn’t been too valuable in the fantasy world as of late. He’s spent the last two seasons with the Patriots where he’s caught 13 passes in 29 games.
2019 Bottom Line
Allen might catch a few touchdowns here and there, but nothing reliable enough to warrant fantasy consideration. Mike Gesicki is the tight end to own in Miami, and even he isn’t a great choice.
