Patriots | Brandon Lloyd agrees to terms

Patriots | Brandon Lloyd agrees to termsUpdating a previous report, the New England Patriots agreed to terms with free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd (Rams) Saturday, March 17. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Fantasy Tip: This one was speculated for quite some time, as Lloyd reunites with Josh McDaniels, the offensive coordinator for the Patriots. Lloyd gives the team the deep threat they've been seeking, but they may not be done upgrading their receivers.

Lloyd resurrected his career under McDaniels in Denver, catching a career-best 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns. He'll try to take the top off defenses in New England, and his numbers will likely be inconsistent on a weekly basis due to the number of weapons Tom Brady has to work with. However, when Lloyd hits he could go the distance. His value takes a hit in PPR leagues; consider him a solid No. 3 receiver in standard scoring.
