New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki caught two passes for five yards and one touchdown during Sunday's win over the Buffalo Bills. The veteran managed to find the end zone with just 12 seconds left, giving the Patriots an upset victory at home. For Gesicki, it was his first touchdown since signing with New England, but also his lowest yardage output as a member of the Patriots. The big games will come, but as long as Hunter Henry remains in the fold, Gesicki isn't a reliable fantasy option week in and week out.

New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki could see a significant uptick in volume if teammate Hunter Henry (ankle) is unable to play in Week 7 versus the Buffalo Bills. Henry is currently listed as questionable. He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday but upgraded to a limited participant on Friday. Gesicki and Henry have been able to co-exist in the Patriots' offense this year, though the latter has enjoyed more fantasy relevance. However, if he were to get the No. 1 tight end role all to himself, Gesicki could thrive in Week 7. Although the Bills have allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends, the Buffalo defense has been solid all-around and is just as likely to slow down Rhamondre Stevenson or Kendrick Bourne. The bottom line is that the Patriots are projected to fall behind early on Sunday, leading to more pass attempts. New England has targeted its tight ends 51 times this year, which is the sixth-most in the NFL. Gesicki could become a high-end fantasy TE2 this weekend if Henry doesn't suit up. If Henry does play, though, Gesicki lacks fantasy appeal. We should have more clarification on this entire situation when the Patriots post their list of inactive at 11:30 a.m. ET on Sunday.

New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki isn't a reliable fantasy option heading into Sunday's clash with the New York Jets. While Gesicki impressed with five catches and 33 yards in Week 2, he remains the clear No. 2 option behind Hunter Henry. As a result, Gesicki's production is still volatile going forward, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him limited just to one or two targets during any given week. If Henry were to miss time with an injury, Gesicki could become a top-12 option. For the time being, though, your best bet is to look elsewhere for production at the tight end position.

New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki turned six targets into five receptions for 33 yards against his former team, the Miami Dolphins, in Week 2. Gesicki operated behind Hunter Henry but still delivered solid production on an equally promising 72 percent snap share. Henry is the only Patriots tight end who can be firmly trusted in fantasy football leagues at the moment, but managers desperately in need of points at the position might consider Gesicki's steady receiving usage. He's a fringe top-24 tight end heading into next week's clash with the Jets.

New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki gets his chance for a revenge game on Sunday Night Football versus the Miami Dolphins. However, the 27-year-old was clearly New England's No. 2 tight end behind Hunter Henry last week, so just how much Gesicki can get involved in Week 2 remains to be seen. He's a solid, big body around the goal line who is always a threat to score, but with Henry in the fold, Gesicki simply isn't worth starting in fantasy football.

New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki caught three passes for 36 yards in the team's 25-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Down early, the Patriots were forced to rely more on the passing game to try and pull off the comeback. Quarterback Mac Jones threw for 316 yards and three touchdowns on the day. New England's TE1, Hunter Henry, led the position with five catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. Gesicki has been known as a solid receiving option as a tight end but remains behind Henry on the depth chart. He's not worth rostering in fantasy football.

New England Patriots tight end Mike Gesicki (shoulder), running back Pierre Strong Jr. (concussion), and wide receiver Ty Montgomery (knee) all returned to practice on Tuesday. The trio of skill players have all been out for varying periods of time, so it's a positive sign to see them all back to action a few weeks before the regular season begins. Gesicki has fantasy football intrigue as a mid-round tight end option, but Strong and Montgomery are not on the fantasy radar until further notice. Overall, the Patriots offense could take a step forward under new offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien.
