Gesicki certainly hasn't lived up to the hype over the past couple of seasons, but he's constantly in the top-12 conversation at the TE position due to his opportunity and athleticism. While there are certainly more targets in town now, Gesicki can settle into a secondary role where he doesn't have to command the attention of the defense. I don't believe he has top-5 upside in this offense, but he certainly can be a reliable starter for you that should give you a safe floor each week.That's right, folks! It's Jonnu time yet again! After hyping up Smith all last off-season, it's time to hop back on the Hype Train and talk about Jonnu's potential for fantasy yet again. Once Smith signed with the New England Patriots for a massive deal in free agency, it seemed like the hopes of Smith finishing as a top-5 option at the TE position were all but locked in. Unfortunately, Hunter Henry's signing a day later put a damper on those dreams, but we still shouldn't be scared off of Smith and his potential in this offense. With a revamped - but honestly still lackluster - WR corps, there's a strong possibility that Smith leads this entire team in targets. The Patriots will be committed to getting him the ball in creative ways near the line of scrimmage and letting him create after the catch, which he does better than nearly every other TE in the league. I had Smith ranked as a top-8 TE last season and I'm going to have him in the same range again for 2021. My Very Early Projection: 72-752-6 receiving.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Part of the reason we liked Gesicki last year was due to the lack of verified options in the Dolphins passing attack. That's changed as we head into 2021, as the Dolphins have added Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle to the arsenal. Despite the lack of options last year, Gesicki saw just 85 targets. There is a new offensive coordinator, which can certainly shake things up, but the additions of Fuller and Waddle reduce the need for Gesicki's athleticism, and he's not a possession-style tight end. His upside is capped, and his floor might be in jeopardy, too.Smith's talent was not put on display nearly enough with the Titans, as he never saw more than 65 targets in a single season. Despite that, he finished as a top-12 tight end in 2020. The Patriots were aggressive with him, signing him the first day of free agency to a four-year, $50 million deal, which tells us all we need to know: They aren't going to hide him. The signing of Hunter Henry hurt his projection a bit, but the drafting of Mac Jones improved it a bit because once he takes over as the starter, this team will throw a lot more. Once you get outside the top five tight ends, you're chasing upside, and Smith has plenty of it.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Gesicki finished strong with Tua last year with; 34 targets, 250 yards and 3 td's in the last 4 games (13.7 FPPG). It generally takes TEs 2-3 years to develop and make an impact, so rookie Hunter Long's presence isn't an immediate threat. Gesicki is heading into his 4th year and has already showed chemistry with Tua. It seems like a lot of defensive attention is going to be spent elsewhere, making Gesicki a solid security blanket for Tua. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Gesicki had his moments last year, but it amounted to 132.8 fantasy points. Tua Tagovailoa needs to develop into a better passer if Gesicki is going to be an elite fantasy tight end.Smith will be a nice addition to the New England offense, but he is going to have a hard time being a TE1 competing with Hunter Henry for tight end targets and playing with either Cam Newton or Mac Jones. Smith is more of a TE2 in fantasy.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
The drafting of Alabama speedster Jaylen Waddle should open things up underneath for Gesicki, but for him to have any chance at a decent year, he needs Tua to stay healthy. That's not a given given his injury history in college.The last time the Patriots had two really good TE's was when Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez were playing together at Gillette Stadium. They're hoping the additions of Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry add similar juice to a team in desperate need of some playmakers. Smith is not known as a blocker, but after Taylor Lewan torn his ACL last year, the Titans kept Smith in to help with pass protection. The Patriots line is solid. That should open up more opportunities for Smith to pad his stats. He's known for his speed and run after catch ability. Coach Belichick said he's probably the best in the league after the catch. Those are strong words. The Patriots are paying him $50 million over 4 years. Ya think they want to throw him the ball some? If Cam Newton or Mac Jones can be decent, Smith should easily outperform his price on draft day and could crack the Top 10.
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Gesicki shined last season, showing off his crazy athleticism and his second-best contested-catch rate in the league for 53/703/6. With burners like Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle on outside, opportunity should be abound in the middle of the field and in the end zone. A new offensive system is concerning, but Tua loved throwing to Gesicki in 2020 proven by his TE6 overall ranking in the weeks Tua started. In fact, Gesicki had the most fantasy points on the team after Tua rook the reins as starter.

 Love the real-life fit w/ Pats alongside Henry in their recreation of Gronk & Hernandez - lite... but the fantasy results could be sketchy, at least if Cam remains the QB
