Scouting report

NE TE Mike Gesicki - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Washington Commanders

There is just no fantasy relevance for Mike Gesicki. He really shouldn’t even be on a fantasy roster at this point.

ME TE Mike Gesicki - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Miami Dolphins

Mike Gesicki scored his first touchdown as a Patriot last week and it was the game-winner. That said, he has just 17 catches all season. He’s nowhere near fantasy-relevant yet. You can find better options this week.

NE TE Mike Gesicki - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. New Orleans Saints

With options like David Njoku on a bye this week, Mike Gesicki gets a little bump in the rankings this week. But he has just 10 catches this season and eight of them came in the first two weeks of the season. Hunter Henry is the top option here. Gesicki isn't very fantasy-relevant right now.

NE TE Mike Gesicki - 2023 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Mike Gesicki swapped teams in the AFC East, going from Miami to New England. He reunites with Bill O'Brien. The two were together at Penn State. He joins a Patriots team that can run plenty of 12 personnel. Jonnu Smith is gone (traded to Atlanta), so Gesicki will pair with Hunter Henry. Henry and Smith combined for 97 targets last season, with 59 going to Henry. Gesicki could see a pretty even split with Henry for targets.

Fantasy Downside
Gesicki has to bounce back from what was a very quiet final season in Miami. He caught just 32 passes and played less than half of Miami's offensive snaps. New England's tight ends were also pretty quiet last season. Despite the 97 combined targets, Henry and Smith combined for just two touchdowns, both from Henry.

2023 Bottom Line
Patriots tight ends haven't been very fantasy-friendly lately and Gesicki probably won't magically change that this season. He's a nice target for Mac Jones, but he'll have a tough time cracking TE1 territory on a weekly basis. Henry is still around to take targets away and this offense goes through Rhamondre Stevenson.

MIA TE Mike Gesicki - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at New England Patriots

Mike Gesicki saw two targets last week, finishing with one catch for 24 yards. There was a stretch this season where Gesicki was serviceable, but he's simply fallen out of favor in this Miami offense. In his last seven games, Gesicki has five total receptions for 63 yards with no touchdowns. Maybe a QB change in Teddy Bridgewater will change that, but we wouldn't want to take that risk and find out. Gesicki should be off the fantasy radar for Week 17.

MIA TE Mike Gesicki - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Green Bay Packers

The good news: Mike Gesicki's catchless streak ended. The bad news: he only caught one pass for five yards. Gesicki has now caught just four passes in his last six games combined for a total of 39 yards. Gesicki has been shockingly fazed out of this offense, and he's someone you'll want to avoid in Week 16 despite a decent matchup against the Packers (20th aFPA).

MIA TE Mike Gesicki - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Buffalo Bills

Mike Gesicki has essentially become non-existent in this Miami offense as he finished with his third goose egg in a row last week. He faces a tough Bills defense (5th aFPA) this week, and Gesicki didn't do much in his earlier matchup against Buffalo this season, catching one pass for six yards. We'd avoid Gesicki this week and start a tight end who's actually had a catch in his last three games.
