Patriots | New England could rest starters

Tue, 22 Dec 2015 10:57:01 -0800

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick hinted that they could rest players in Week 17 if they secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win over the New York Jets in Week 16. "It's something we'll have to give some thought to and get as much information as possible because there are some guys that are in various states of physical health," Belichick said.

Fantasy Tip: If the Patriots are able to win this weekend over the Jets, there's a high probability that most of their starters will be rested entirely or won't play a full game. That would make using any Patriots players on FantasyScore in Week 17 very foolish.

Patriots | No decision on Rob Gronkowski

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 10:12:56 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's (knee) status for Week 1 has not been determined, according to head coach Bill Belichick. "I'm glad that Rob's optimistic about this situation," Belichick said. "We'll go through the week of practice and take a look at everything, everybody, and see where everybody's at and try to do what we feel like is best for the team. With all due respect to Rob -- I'm glad he feels the way he does -- but, in the end, we'll have to make the decision we feel like is best for the team and we'll do that as we go through the week."

Fantasy Tip: This could be Belichick being cautious with the team's plans for Week 1, but it is worth monitoring Gronkowski's practice status throughout the rest of the week. If Gronk is healthy and active in Week 1, he should be started.

Patriots | Chandler Jones earns praise

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 01:34:18 -0700

New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones earned praise from coach Bill Belichick for his play in the Friday, Aug. 22 exhibition game. "He's a versatile player and he's very conscientious to try to do whatever we ask him to do and playing in all those different spots," Belichick said. "He's a very athletic player with good length, good playing strength so he has a lot of versatility athletically, he has a lot of versatility mentally."

Fantasy Tip: If you are earning praise from the usually quiet Belichick, chances are you're doing something right. Jones is viewed as a rising star in many circles, and if your league drafts IDP's then you may want to keep an eye on Jones as someone to pick up.
