Tyler Gaffney waived by New England

The New England Patriots have waived running back Tyler Gaffney on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Gaffney, who has never appeared in a regular-season game since being drafted 204th overall by New England in 2014, was waived by the Patriots Monday. He'll likely sign with another club this offseason and compete for a roster spot entering 2017. However, he is a prime candidate to land on a practice squad as well when its all said and done.

Tyler Gaffney gets waived by Patriots

Tyler Gaffney was waived/injured by the Patriots on Saturday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. If Gaffney goes unclaimed, he'll be placed on injured reserve Sunday. This will likely mark the third consecutive season he's spent on IR.

Fantasy Impact

It looked like earlier in the preseason that Gaffney had a lock on a roster spot and was battling LeGarrette Blount for the early down back role. But he could not distinguish himself and ended up with a foot injury.

Tyler Gaffney potential sleeper at RB for 2016

Tyler Gaffney has started the preseason out strong as he finished Thursday's preseason game with 64 yards (including a 44-yard touchdown run) on nine second-half carries.

Fantasy Impact

Gaffney has spent the last two years on injured reserve so he has become a forgotten name. But Bill Belichick is a fan of his and scooped him up from the Panthers two seasons ago. If Gaffney stays healthy he could be this year's Dion Lewis. Keep on eye on Gaffney during the preseason as this could be a name that pops up again this year.

Tyler Gaffney placed on inured reserve

Tyler Gaffney (unspecified injury) was placed on IR by the Patriots after he cleared waivers.

Fantasy Impact

Tyler Gaffney was drafted in the sixth round last year by the Panthers before being picked up by the Patriots and ultimately ending up on injured reserve all last season. He looked to be a sleeper in the running back race this preseason. It has not worked out that way and Gaffney will spend another season watching games from the sidelines.

Bill Belichick loves Tyler Gaffney

RB Tyler Gaffney (ACL) progressing well. Bill Belichick apparently loves him. Stashed him for a reason.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots claimed Tyler Gaffney off of waivers after the Carolina Panthers waived him in training camp before last season after he tore his ACL. The Patriots then stashed him on injured reserve. With Shane Vereen possibly leaving in free agency, Gaffney will have an opportunity if healthy to replace him as the third down back.
