Devin Asiasi
22-Year-Old Tight EndTE
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Minus Rob Gronkowski, the tight end position became largely an afterthought in the Patriots' passing game last season. As April's NFL Draft approached, the Patriots' tight end corps was down to Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo. It's therefore no surprise that the team doubled-down with a pair of third-rounders, taking Asiasi 91st overall and then selecting Dalton Keene in the No. 101 slot. Both players have some long-term fantasy upside, but with a QB transition on tap in the wake of Tom Brady's departure, it may take some time for either to yield dividends. The 6-3, 257-pound Asiasi showed above-average athleticism at the combine, running a 4.73-second 40-yard dash on a dense frame. Though the UCLA product still needs to overtake LaCosse and hold off competition from Keene once the Patriots re-take the field, Asiasi does have a chance to start for the team as soon as Week 1.

The Patriots selected Asiasi in the third round of the 2020 NFL draft, 91st overall.
ANALYSIS
Asiasi (6-foot-3, 257) was a one-year wonder at UCLA who didn't do anything until his age-22 season, but that one campaign was very productive (44 receptions for 641 yards and four touchdowns on 70 targets). He also showed above-average athleticism at the combine, running a 4.73-second 40-yard dash on a dense frame. With New England's tight end depth chart non-existent otherwise, Asiasi could be an immediate starter.
