he should definitely be on the sleeper radar pending more news on the gronk/hernandez front. it's not out of the question that he is starting week 1 at this point, assuming he's healthy.
just don't get your hopes up. he's nowhere near Gronk/Rudolph in terms of talent. could be a decent bet for 8-10 TDs tho.

Could be looking at low-end TE1 material with Hernandez getting cut and the Patriots weak WR core.
In ESPN standard scoring, Brandon Myers finished 10th among TEs last season with 97 points (806 yards, 4 TDs, no fractional scoring), so I don't think it's much of a stretch.

Jimmy Graham is far atop the pile with Gronk as a question mark.
Ballard is a steady, overachiever type and a reasonable bye week/injury fill in.
Not sure I would be comfortable leaning on him as anything more than that, but also not sure what Belichick has in mind for this upcoming season on offense... should be interesting.
