News: The Patriots have re-signed Tyms, csnne.com reports.
Impact: The 6-3, 204-pound Tyms played in 11 games for the Patriots in 2014, recording five catches for 94 yards and a touchdown. While Tyms brings good size and some potential as a deep threat to the table, his role with the team in 2015 is hardly defined, with the likes of Brandon LaFell, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Brandon Gibson and Aaron Dobson also in the team's wideout mix.
Rotowire: Dec 30 / 1:59p ET
News: Tyms, who caught four passes for 39 yards in Sunday's regular-season finale, was on the field for 54 of 67 snaps on offense in the contest, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Tyms saw some extra action Sunday with WR Julian Edelman and TE Rob Gronkowski out and the Patriots' rolling with more three-receiver sets than usual as a result. Once the playoffs begin, Tyms figures to slot in as the team's No. 4 wideout, an assignment that doesn't carry much fantasy upside. Overall this season, Tyms caught just five passes for 82 yards and a TD in 11 games, but depending on how things shake out personnel-wise, the 6'3", 204-pound wideout could see his role in the offense increase next season.
