Ryan Izzo News

Traded to Houston

The Patriots are trading Izzo to the Texans for a 2022 seventh-round draft pick, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Izzo was buried on the Patriots' depth chart after they signed Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry. A seventh-round pick himself, Izzo will now compete for a roster spot in Houston, where veteran TE Darren Fells was released in a corresponding move. Izzo caught 13 passes on 626 offensive snaps for the Patriots last season, struggling to command targets even when he had a three-down role in a pathetic passing offense. A neck injury sent him to IR in December.

Lands on IR

The Patriots will place Izzo (neck) on injured reserve Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Patriots are essentially swapping out tight ends ahead of Thursday's game against the Rams, as the team will activate rookie Devin Asiasi (undisclosed) from IR in a corresponding move. Izzo has started at tight end in all 12 games for New England this season, though that role has translated to just 13 catches for 199 yards.

Questionable for TNF

Izzo (hamstring/hand/neck) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: Izzo had been a staple on the injury report since early November with hamstring and hand injuries, but he suffered the neck injury in last week's win over the Chargers. Izzo has served as the Patriots' starting tight end in all 12 games this season, but his chances to play could be in jeopardy after a short week. If he's forced to miss the contest, Dalton Keene and Jordan Thomas would handle the team's tight end duties.

Activity limited in practice

Izzo (neck/hamstring/hand) was listed as a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.

Analysis: New England has listed Izzo as a limited participant on both of its first two injury reports, so the tight end may need to upgrade to full activity Wednesday to avoid carrying a designation into Thursday's game versus the Rams. Izzo has served as the Patriots' starting tight end in all 12 games this season, but he's seen modest volume in the passing game throughout, totaling only 13 receptions for 199 yards and no touchdowns on 20 targets.

Dec 8, 2020 5:45 PM EST


Limited on Monday's estimate

Izzo (hamstring/hand/neck) was a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate.

Analysis: Izzo's practice reps have been capped for a while due to hamstring and hand injuries, and he picked up a neck injury during Sunday's 45-0 win over the Chargers. It's unclear if this injury could force him to sit out Thursday against the Rams. Since the Patriots didn't actually take the field Monday, we'll be able to draw a better conclusion on his healthy following Tuesday's practice.

Suffers neck injury

Izzo (neck) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Izzo was initially listed as 'questionable' to play Sunday due to hamstring and hand injuries, but his neck issue appears to be a new development. With Izzo out, Dalton Keene is the Patriots' only available tight end.

Dec 6, 2020 3:40 PM EST


Ready to play Sunday

Izzo (hamstring/hand) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Izzo has been a staple on the injury report since early November, but he has yet to miss any game action. The 24-year-old is playing an every-down role but is inconsistently involved in the passing game with three catches for 79 yards over the past four games.

Dec 6, 2020 12:34 PM EST


Listed as questionable

Izzo (hamstring/hand) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

Analysis: This is nothing new for Izzo. His practice reps have been capped for more than a month, but he's been on the field every week, often logging more than 90 percent of the snaps on offense. He'll likely play Sunday, but fantasy managers shouldn't be concerned about the third-year tight end who has produced a 12-193-0 line through 10 games.

Dec 4, 2020 3:17 PM EST


Still dealing with injury

Izzo (hamstring/hand) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Izzo battled through both injuries in practice last week leading up to Sunday's win over the Cardinals, as he saw the field for 51 of 53 offensive snaps in the game. It's likely that the Florida State product will suit up in Sunday's game against the Chargers, but with tight end production disappearing in the New England offense, Izzo likely won't make an impact from a fantasy perspective.

Dec 2, 2020 3:47 PM EST


No targets in Week 12

Izzo was on the field for 51 of the Patriots' 53 snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: Despite logging ample playing time Sunday, Izzo wasn't targeted in the contest. With New England's tight ends not being a focal point in the team's offense, Izzo's fantasy utility remains minimal.

Nov 30, 2020 11:38 AM EST


Listed as active Sunday

Izzo (hamstring/hand) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Though Izzo continues to see his share of snaps on a weekly basis, he's topped out at three targets during this season's slate and possesses modest fantasy utility as a result.

Nov 29, 2020 8:43 AM EST


Listed as questionable

Izzo (hamstring/hand) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Izzo is familiar with the injury report, but he has avoided missing any time this year. In fact, he's played at least 80 percent of the snaps on offense in three straight games, so he's expected to be ready Sunday. The third-year tight end isn't much of a factor in the passing game, as he's posted more than 38 yards in a game just once this year.

Nov 27, 2020 5:09 PM EST


Limited at practice Wednesday

Izzo (hamstring/hand) logged a limited practice session Wednesday, Andrew Callahan of Boston Herald reports.

Analysis: Izzo continues to battle hamstring and hand issues, but he was able to play in Sunday's loss to Houston, and it's a positive sign that he practiced in a limited capacity during the first session of the week. The second-year tight end has not exceeded three catches in any game so far this season, so he's only a fantasy option in deep leagues.

Nov 25, 2020 1:29 PM EST


Catches two passes Sunday

Izzo caught two of his three targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Izzo's Week 11 stat line was boosted by a 50-yard Hail Mary grab on the last play of the game which fell 12 yards short of the end zone. The tight end continues to see his share of snaps on a weekly basis, but he's maxed out at three targets this season and thus possesses modest fantasy utility.

Nov 23, 2020 11:21 AM EST


In uniform Sunday

Izzo (hamstring/hand) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Analysis: Izzo is available Sunday, but limited volume in the Patriots' passing game keeps him off the radar in all but the deepest of fantasy formats. To date, he's logged a 10/134/0 stat line through nine games.

Nov 22, 2020 9:00 AM EST


Questionable for Week 11

Izzo (hamstring/hand) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Texans, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.

Analysis: Izzo has played through the hamstring injury in the last two games, but the hand injury is new. Perhaps it'll be enough to keep him out, but the third-year tight end was limited in every practice this week, indicating that he still has a good chance to play. Jordan Thomas is the only other healthy tight end on the active roster.

Nov 20, 2020 2:06 PM EST


Dealing with lingering injury

Izzo (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Izzo was on the injury report with a hamstring issue for two consecutive weeks, but he logged more than a 90 percent snap share in each of those games, indicating it's just a minor problem. The third-year tight end will predictably take it easy in practice again this week, but he'll likely play Sunday against the Texans. Izzo doesn't hold fantasy value, though, as he hasn't registered more than 38 receiving yards in a game or scored a touchdown this year.

Nov 18, 2020 2:55 PM EST


Catches lone target

Izzo hauled in his only target for 20 yards in Sunday's 23-17 win over the Ravens.

Analysis: Izzo was on the field for 54 of a possible 58 snaps on offense Sunday, but limited volume (he's maxed out at three targets this season) in the passing game keeps him off the radar in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.

Nov 16, 2020 11:48 AM EST


Playing Sunday

Izzo (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Ravens, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Izzo also was listed as questionable prior to this past Monday's win over the Jets but ended up playing 76 of a possible 81 snaps on offense. Despite seeing plenty of time on the field, he wasn't targeted in the contest and only is an option in the deepest of fantasy formats, having logged a 9-114-0 stat line through eight games.

Nov 15, 2020 4:01 PM EST


Questionable for SNF

Izzo (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Baltimore.

Analysis: Izzo was limited in all three practice sessions this week, but he'll likely continue to play through this injury barring a setback. The tight end was also listed as questionable prior to last week's win over the Jets but ended up playing 76 of a possible 81 snaps on offense.
