2020 Fantasy Outlook
Izzo, who the Patriots took in the seventh round of the 2018 draft, finished last season with just six catches (on nine targets) for 114 yards and a TD in six games, while working behind Ben Watson and Matt LaCosse. With rookies Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene now in the fold, the odds seem slim that Izzo makes a big fantasy splash in 2020. Read Past Outlooks

Izzo finished the 2019 regular season with six catches (on nine targets) for 114 yards and a TD in six games.
ANALYSIS
The 2018 seventh-rounder ended up working behind Ben Watson and Matt LaCosse this past season, as the trio combined to form a tight end committee in the post-Rob Gronkowski era. Izzo is under contract with the Patriots through 2021, but assuming he sticks around next season, it doesn't seem likely that he'll approach fantasy relevance, with a makeover at his position likely on tap for the team.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
The Patriots selected Izzo in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but the tight end spent his first season as a pro on IR. Izzo's best chance of sticking around this season rests in his aptitude as a blocker. To that end, he'll need to compete with Matt LaCosse, Stephen Anderson and UDFA Andrew Beck for depth chart slotting behind Ben Watson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
Selected in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Izzo's best chance of sticking with the Patriots is establishing himself as a solid blocker. His path to fantasy value, however, is blocked by the presence of starting tight end Rob Gronkowski, as well as that of Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister.
