Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Patriots were just 19th against fantasy tight ends last year, but the Patriots should be improved this year and Clay is playing on an offense that is not exactly clicking in the passing game.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Expecting the Patriots to come out and score, despite a reasonably imposing matchup. As such, Miami will throw the ball often and Clay should benefit just as he did in '13. Lazor's offense should involve the TE.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Clay is what makes the Dolphins go on offense with a high number of targets and receptions. Expect a solid day out of the former Tulsa product.
Ken Whisenhunt's offense likes to use tight ends in the passing game, but the ceiling is limited with the quarterback situation for the Titans (especially week one).
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Clay isn't sexy but he's pretty reliable. Should make it inside the top 15 in week 1.
Walker isn't a freak but Locker should use him as a safety net against a tough defense.
