Obviously our base backfield is Gronkowksi, Hernandez, Welker, Lloyd and Ridley. I would think that we would run this 60% of the time. Where should Hernandez fit in beyond the 2 TE set, if at all? As i said above, I would expect the 2nd TE reps to go up to 60% and the 3rd WR down to 40%. Q1) Would you expect the running game to be as effective with hernandez as a blocker instead of Fells? Q2) If Hernandez is to be on the field on more than 60% of the reps, whose reps should go down? I would think that we need to run a 3 WR set at least 40% of the time, perhaps not. Gronk 100% Welker 100% Lloyd 100% 3rd WR 60% 2nd TE 40% (includes straight running plays where both TE's are blockers) i'll ignore the very few 3 TE formations and also note that the RB is often a receiver.
