  Patriots | Matt LaCosse not guaranteed roster spot    Mon May 11, 07:27 PM

New England Patriots TE Matt LaCosse may have to compete with TE Ryan Izzo for one roster spot during training camp.

Footballguys view: The Patriots selected two tight ends in the 2020 NFL draft and they should be taking over the room. Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene are those rookie who should provide the Patriots with a 1-2 punch at the position with Asiasi as the receiver and Keene mostly a blocker.

  Patriots | Matt LaCosse ruled out Week 9    Sat Nov 2, 02:22 PM

New England Patriots TE Matt LaCosse (knee) on Saturday, Nov. 2, was downgraded to out for Week 9 with a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Ben Watson is out there for the Patriots now, logging 48 snaps in Week 8 against Cleveland. He'll be the primary pass-catching tight end for the Patriots in Week 9 against the Ravens. Fantasy GMs can look at Watson as a low-end TE2 on Sunday. You likely have better options available to you.

New England Patriots TE Matt LaCosse (undisclosed) exited the preseason game against the Detroit Lions with an undisclosed injury and did not return Thursday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: LaCosse is in line to start while Ben Watson is suspended for four games, but he'll have to be healthy to merit consideration in deep TE premium leagues.

  Patriots | Matt LaCosse holding his ground    Sun Jul 28, 02:27 AM

New England Patriots TE Matt LaCosse is the odds-on favorite to replace Rob Gronkowski this season and continues to run with the first-team offense, according to MassLive's Andrew Callahan.

Footballguys view: It is still difficult to picture this situation producing a consistent fantasy option with Ben Watson returning five weeks into the season and the tight end unlikely to play a central role in the passing game. This is more relevant for deep tight end premium leagues.

  Patriots | Matt LaCosse in line to start opener?    Tue Jun 4, 04:36 PM

New England Patriots TE Matt LaCosse is 'a pretty smooth athlete ... and can serve as a viable target down the middle of the field,' according to the Boston Herald's Kevin Duffy, who adds that 'all signs point' to LaCosse starting Week 1 with Benjamin Watson serving a four-game suspension and Austin Seferian-Jenkins no longer with the team as he deals with personal issues.

Footballguys view: LaCosse came into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois in 2015 with the New York Giants. He's spent the last two seasons with the Broncos and is a big-bodied receiver. He had 24 catches for 250 yards and one touchdown in 2018. LaCosse is in line for a big role unless the Patriots add some help via trade or free agency.

Free-agent TE Matt LaCosse (Broncos) agreed to terms with the New England Patriots Thursday, March 14, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: LaCosse is an interesting 'Y' tight end to keep an eye on in crazy deep dynasty formats. He did work his way into some playing time with the Broncos last year. He caught 24 passes for 250 yards and one touchdown in 2018.
