Troy Niklas signs one-year deal with Patriots

The New England Patriots signed in-line blocking tight end Troy Niklas to a one-year deal Niklas will compete with Dwayne Allen, Will Tye, and Jacob Hollister for playing time behind Rob Gronkowski.

Fantasy Impact

Niklas has missed 23 games in his four-year career since being selected by the Cardinals with the 52nd pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. His best season was 2017, where he caught just 11 passes for 132 yards. Even if he makes the Patriots roster, Niklas is likely to be used as a blocker and has not flashed any kind of ability as a receiver to warrant fantasy interest.

Troy Niklas has three catches for Cardinals

Tight end Troy Niklas caught three passes for 41 yards in the Cardinals loss to the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

Niklas saw six targets, a career high. His 41 yards were also the most he’s had in a single game. He is not a consistent fantasy performer in ideal situations, and when Blaine Gabbert is your quarterback, it is far from an ideal situation.

Troy Niklas a non factor again

Troy Niklas finished Sunday’s win over the 49ers with a single catch for 16 yards.

Fantasy Impact

The reception gives Niklas the grand total of five on the year. If Jermaine Gresham offers practically nothing in terms of fantasy appeal, Niklas brings absolutely nothing.

Troy Niklas does nothing in Cardinals loss

Troy Niklas failed to register a catch as the Cardinals were shutout at Twickenham by the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Targeted just once, Niklas has just four catches on the season. If you’ve had to roster him, your team needs a lot of help.

Troy Niklas has one catch in Cardinals win

Troy Niklas caught his sole target for 16 yards on Sunday against the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Niklas had one fewer target than last week, but one more catch. His family will be proud, but he is nowhere near fantasy relevant.
