Tight End or Wide Receiver? - Offseason Low Down - Rotoworld.com Great article that used PFF's numbers (at least these are hard to screw up) and put together the percentages that some tight ends spent at each position. The Pats' two are listed below and will probably surprise a lot of people. Hernandez: 41% slot 35% in-line 19% wide 5% backfield So for all of you talking about turning him into a WR, don't bother. He already played 60% of his snaps as a wide receiver last year, about the same as last year (although I think it was closer to a 30/30 slot/wide split than 40/20). Gronkowski: 51% in-line 45% slot There wasn't a full write-up on Gronk, so there's 4% of the snaps that were split between out wide and in the backfield in some unknown way.
