2020 Fantasy Outlook
After years of enjoying top-level production from 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' depth chart at the position consisted of Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo. With that in mind, the team doubled down by taken both Keene and Devin Asiasi in the third round. Both players have some long-term fantasy upside, but with a QB transition on tap in the wake of Tom Brady's departure, neither figures to be a reliable lineup option out of the gate. Keene posted modest volume at Virginia Tech, but his per-target efficiency was notable thanks to his standout work after the catch. With an athletic profile similar to Austin Hooper's, the 6-4, 253-pound Keene - who just turned 21 in April - has the potential to ascend to a starting job, especially now that LaCosse has opted out of the 2020 season.

Keene is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Fellow rookie tight end Devin Asiasi was made a healthy scratch Sunday, which paves the way for Keene to make his NFL debut in Week 7. Though Keene posted modest volume while at Virginia Tech, his per-target efficiency was notable thanks to his strong work after the catch. A wait and-see-approach is in order here from a fantasy perspective, but perhaps Keene can provide the Patriots offense with a lift in his first game action as a pro.
