With the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots had a big hole to fill at tight end and Seferian-Jenkins was probably the best available option. Still just 26 years old, Seferian-Jenkins is a great athlete but has never been able to capitalize on his considerable potential. He caught 21 passes for 338 yards and four touchdowns in seven games back in 2015, but has never cracked 400 yards receiving or caught more than four touchdowns in five seasons. The Patriots represent his best opportunity to date, and if he gets the requisite playing time, he could turn into a streaming/TE2 option.
NE TE Rob Gronkowski - Week 19 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 19 vs. Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers go west to east for the second consecutive week to take on the Patriots in New England with a trip to the AFC Championship game on the line. New England is a shrinking four-point favorite with a middle-of-the-pack implied team total of 25.5 points. The Chargers rank top five in aFPA to QBs, which makes Tom Brady a very risky option in the divisional round. Even though the Chargers rank top ten in aFPA to TEs as well, Rob Gronkowski still ranks top four at the position this week thanks to an utter lack of good tight ends left. Obviously, his floor is zero though at this point.
