New England Patriots TE Dalton Keene was seen at workouts with QBs Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer, WRs Mohamed Sanu and Gunner Olszewski, C David Andrews and FB Jakob Johnson Wednesday, July 15.
Huddle Up: Keene will be competing for work with fellow rookie TE Devin Asiasi early in the season and won't be worth drafting in any format. Asiasi has more upside in dynasty leagues.

New England Patriots rookie TE Dalton Keene brings versatility and toughness to the New England offense. Keene has lined up at multiple spots during his college career, including flush against the tackle, in the backfield and out wide. He is also known as a hard-nosed player, never shying away from running defenders over. According to the Boston Globe's Christopher Price, the ideal situation for Keene in 2020 would be a complementary role on offense while helping on special teams.
Huddle Up: Like rookie teammate Devin Asiasi, Keene will be needed to help bolster the tight end position that was largely invisible in New England last year. However, his best fantasy days probably won't be there in 2020, as rooks at the position generally struggle to produce quality numbers. His best value is in dynasty formats as a backup stash.
