    Patriots' Matt LaCosse: Added competition via draft

    Matt LaCosse's depth chart standing will be challenged by rookie tight ends Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene, Adam London of NESN.com reports.Moreover, London suggests that either LaCosse or Ryan Izzo may not stick with the team in the wake of the New England Patriots doubling-down on Asiasi and Keene in Round 3 of this past week's NFL Draft. In his first season with New England, LaCosse caught just 13 passes for 131 yards with one TD in 11 games, and it's possible he could be the odd man out, considering Izzo's utility as a blocker. Either way, between the added competition for targets and a looming transition at QB, LaCosse is off the fantasy radar as the 2020 season approaches.

    Patriots' Matt LaCosse: Logs 13 catches this past season

    Matt LaCosse finished the 2019 regular season with 13 catches (on 19 targets) for 131 yards and a TD in 11 games.With Rob Gronkowski no longer in the mix, LaCosse, Ben Watson and Ryan Izzo handled the New England Patriots' tight end duties in 2019. Neither of the trio came close to approaching fantasy relevance- and we'd expect some sort of makeover at the position this offseason, with Watson a candidate to retire. Meanwhile, LaCosse -- who was hampered at times this past season by ankle and knee issues -- is under contract with New England through 2020, but Jeff Howe of the Athletic notes that if LaCosse doesn't make the team next season, the Patriots can save $1.4 million against their salary cap. If he does stick around in 2020 and can stay healthy, LaCosse should be able to produce more, but with moving parts at both his position and also at QB, it's too early to assign him an accurate projection.

No. 1 tight end Ben Watson, on the other hand, took the field for 49 snaps (70 percent). As long as he remains relegated to a depth role in New England's offense, LaCosse won't warrant much fantasy consideration.
