JuJu Smith-Schuster Note

Hard to say how long JuJu Smith-Schuster will remain the team's WR1, given his doomsday timetable regarding his knee health. But until it goes #kaboom, he should be viewed as the target leader in this offense in Week 1. That gives him fantasy WR4 appeal against the Eagles, who he last faced in the Super Bowl. Smith-Schuster commanded a team-high nine targets (38% target share) for seven receptions and 53 receiving yards.

Hunter Henry Note

If there's any non-Stevenson Patriots player, I'd feel okay about starting in Week 1, it would be Hunter Henry. He is the clear TE1 for the Patriots with Mike Gesicki missing time due to a shoulder injury. Henry is by far Jones' preferred red-zone target, and one receiving TD is enough to vault any tight end into TE1 territory. Henry has been with the Patriots through the entire Mac Jones era, and the two have consistently flashed their chemistry through training camp. Considering Henry has been Jones' favorite RZ target over the past two seasons, he has a TD upside in half-PPR scoring formats. The Patriots tight end should maintain a full-time role after running a route on 70% of dropbacks over the last two seasons (11th).

Mike Gesicki Note

If he didn't miss so much time in camp, I'd feel much better about Gesicki. But given questionable health and currently unknown role on offense. The ex-Dolphins tight end is just a wait and see proposition, that should remain on waiver wires until further notice.
