Instant Fantasy Analysis - TE Dalton Keene, Patriots

Recommended Posts

Height/Weight: 6' 4"/253
College: Virginia Tech

It's a good thing Keene performed well the combine (4.71, 10' 5" broad, 4.19 shuttle) because he only received 71 targets in three years at Virginia Tech to prove his ability as a receiver. Much like the player New England drafted at his position earlier in the third round (Devin Asiasi), it is Keene's combination of good size and the aforementioned athleticism that are the reasons both players will get their shot to start right away. More than likely, however, both players will siphon targets from each other. They both have in-line capabilities, but both have much work to do to round out their games.

What does it mean in redraft? The depth chart is wide open in Foxboro at tight end, but the combination of Jarrett Stidham replacing Tom Brady and the lack of success that rookie tight ends usually experience figure to make Asiasi more important to New England than fantasy owners. Add the fact they drafted Asiasi ea and it seems unlikely Keene will sniff fantasy relevancy in 2020.

What does it mean for dynasty? The tight end position in New England is going to be a wait-and-see situation. Asiasi should be considered the leader over Dalton Keene for fantasy purposes given the fact he was selected higher, but the Patriots will obviously play the better player. Owners can probably hold off on both players until the fourth round of rookie drafts.
