Patriots' Dwayne Allen: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (undisclosed) has resumed practicing, the Boston Herald reports.

There was some thought that Allen's $5 million cap hit might cost him his roster spot, but it looks like he'll stick around, given that his blocking is valued by the Patriots. As long as starter Rob Gronkowski is healthy, Allen's fantasy value is minimal. In any case, in the event of a Gronkowski injury, it wouldn't surprise us to see Jacob Hollister step into a greater pass-catching role than Allen.

Patriots' Dwayne Allen: Sits out Thursday's game

Allen (undisclosed) logged a "did not play" Thursday night against the Eagles

With Rob Gronkowski rested Thursday, Jacob Hollister drew the start at tight end for the Patriots. While it looks like Allen will stick around thanks to his blocking ability, he shouldn't necessarily be viewed as Gronkowski insurance. Hollister's pass-catching skills seem likely to land him a roster spot and he'd probably step into a more productive role in the event that Gronkowski misses any time.

Patriots' Dwayne Allen: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen left Tuesday's practice with an injury, Jeff Howe of The Athletic Boston reports.

Given the timing of Allen's injury along with the fact Rob Gronkowski hasn't played in the preseason for years, Jacob Hollister seems to be in line for regular work with the first-team offense during Thursday's exhibition against the Eagles. Allen only caught 10 passes last season, but he was useful to the Patriots as a blocker while logging 42 percent of offensive snaps. The Patriots probably would've brought in more competition during the offseason if they were ready to move on from Allen and his scheduled $5 million cap hit.

Patriots' Dwayne Allen: May need to take pay cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen might be asked to take a pay cut,'s Mike Reiss reports.

Allen is scheduled for a $5 million 2018 cap hit, a lofty figure for a No. 2 tight end who caught 10 passes during his first season with the Patriots. He did play 42 percent of the team's offensive snaps, with his strong work as a blocker playing a role in New England's No. 10 finish in rushing yards and No. 6 ranking in rushing TDs. Allen nonetheless seems overpaid, but it isn't out of the question that the team keeps him around at his current salary, as there isn't an obvious replacement for his role. Barring a pay cut or some other form of renegotiated contract, his status on the roster will be tenuous until Week 1.

Patriots' Dwayne Allen: Sees 26 snaps in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was on the field for 26 of 60 snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Steelers.

Allen caught his only target in the contest for 10 yards. Meanwhile, top tight end Rob Gronkowski returned from a one-game suspension and played every snap on offense Sunday, hauling in nine catches for 168 yards. Though Allen could conceivably see the odd red-zone target in the coming weeks, he's not a fantasy lineup option as long as Rob Gronkowski is in uniform.
