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.
