Fantasy Tip: This game could easily be a shootout, making Brady's FantasyScore price of $8,100 (16.2% of cap) likely worth it. It's also worth noting that he has put up big numbers ever since Rob Gronkowski has returned to full health and he has developed some chemistry with deep threat Brandon LaFell.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has been on a hot streak for the last several games and should be able to play in Week 9. Brady costs $8,100 on FantasyScore and should be a solid starting option for owners.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is averaging over 100 yards and one touchdown per game over the last month. QB Tom Brady has shown so much confidence in Gronkowski that he threw to a covered Gronkowski near the goal line for a touchdown in Week 8 instead of an open WR Julian Edelman. Brady has a 129.1 passer rating over the last month with Gronkowski on the field.
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski looks to be fully healthy and is a great starting option in all leagues no matter the matchup. Gronkowski has a price of $7,400 on FantasyScore and is a good option if owners are willing to pay the price.

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray rushed 17 times for 86 yards in the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26. Gray ran decisively, which is something the team has seen in the downhill runner since training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Gray appears to be the team's primary runner inside the tackles, and they're using Shane Vereen for outside runs and in the passing game. This usage really hinders Vereen's fantasy potential, but he's still a weekly RB2/flex option on FantasyScore. Gray will be a flex option to consider next week against the Denver Broncos.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman played in just 45 of the 74 offensive snaps Sunday, Oct. 26. He played in 45 of the team's first 52 snaps, but was apparently benched. The team didn't announce an injury, but he had two drops.
Fantasy Tip: Edelman still remains a WR2 option on FantasyScore against the Denver Broncos in Week 9.
