Description: Crumpler scored his first touchdown of the season Sunday on just his fifth catch as a Patriot.
Insight: If he stays out of the end zone the rest of the way, this will be Crumpler's third straight year with only one touchdown. (

Description: After spending the last six weeks working on getting in shape with a specialist, Alge Crumpler is expected to report to Patriots offseason workouts on Monday.
Insight: Whatever fantasy value Crumpler had when the Patriots sign him disappeared after they drafted two promising young tight ends. Pay him no mind. (

Description: Three NFL sources tell the Boston Globe that Aaron Hernandez fell to the fourth round of the draft because he tested positive for marijuana on "multiple" occasions at Florida.
Insight: Crumpler is the incumbent for now, but look for Hernandez to carve out a role as the season progresses. (
4/11/2010 8:16:00 PM
Description: According to sources, the Patriots expect Crumpler to play a significant part for them this year.
Insight: If so, they will likely be very disappointed. Crumpler is not the same productive tight end he once was. (

Description: Crumpler?s two year deal with the Patriots is for $4.8 million.
Insight: Crumpler will essentially be blocking for whomever will be running the ball. Except for the odd touchdown pass here and there, he will have minimal fantasy value. (
3/18/2010 9:50:00 PM
Description: The Patriots agreed to terms with Crumpler.
Insight: New England needed some help after losing both Ben Watson and Chris Baker, but don't expect Crumpler to suddenly explode in this offense. His best fantasy days are clearly behind him. (
3/14/2010 6:55:00 PM
Description: Crumpler still seems most likely to re-sign with Tennessee.
Insight: He visited New England (who is now in the market for a tight end after losing Ben Watson) but he's not a great fit there. Expect to see him in a Titans uniform next year and to have similar fantasy value. (
3/8/2010 10:28:00 PM
Description: Crumpler will visit with the Patriots on Tuesday.
Insight: His fading fantasy value will wane even more if he signs in New England. It's hard to envision the Pats using him as anything but a last resort in their passing game. (
3/6/2010 11:53:00 AM
Description: The Titans are still talking with Crumpler about extending his contract.
Insight: He is certainly not the receiving threat he was years ago, but he still has value to the Titans. Unfortunately, he doesn?t have much for fantasy owners, so he is best to avoid at drafts. (
12/26/2009 4:41:00 PM
Description: Crumpler failed to record a catch against the Chargers on Friday.
Insight: Crumpler has now gone two straight games without a catch and will be a risky start in Week 17. (
12/21/2009 8:09:00 AM
Description: Crumpler failed to record a catch on Sunday against Miami.
Insight: Crumpler was targeted only once in the game and he has little fantasy value. (
12/15/2009 8:37:00 AM
Description: Crumpler caught four passes Sunday for 41 yards and a touchdown against the Rams on Sunday.
Insight: Crumpler caught his first touchdown pass of the season but still has little fantasy value. (
12/7/2009 12:48:00 AM
Description: Crumpler caught two passes for 14 yards on Sunday against the Colts.
Insight: Crumpler usually has around one or two receptions a game and has little fantasy value. (
11/30/2009 10:31:00 PM
Description: Crumpler caught one pass for eight yards on Sunday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Crumpler has become a forgotten man in the Titans' offense and has only three catches over his last four games. (
Steady4/23/2009 9:44:00 AM
Description: In his first year with the Titans, Crumpler had the fewest receptions of his career (24).
Insight: Crumpler's opportunities mostly go to fellow tight end Bo Scaife. As he enters his ninth year in the league, his days of fantasy relevance may be over. (
