Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,800; 15.6% of cap) is a better play at FantasyScore now that Rob Gronkowski is back to full health and Brandon LaFell has emerged as a legitimate deep threat. The Patriots are facing the Chicago Bears in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,800; 15.6% of your cap) has averaged 305 passing yards and three touchdowns per game over the last three weeks. Oddly enough, this surge has come when he was less than 100% health. Brady is a solid buy as a mid-tier QB1 this week against the Chicago Bears on FantasyScore.

New England Patriots DE Dominique Easley could be asked to fill in for DE Chandler Jones (hip), who may miss up to a month with a hip injury. DE Zach Moore could also see increased repetitions, but he is considered more of a long-term project with high upside.

New England Patriots LB Jerod Mayo (knee) is out for the year, but his financial status may improve as a result of the injury. A total of $4.5 million of his $6.25 million base salary was guaranteed for injury only, which means he still may collect that money if the Patriots decide to move on.

The New England Patriots may look for help at linebacker and on both the offensive and defensive lines before the trade deadline.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski played 53 of his team's 57 offensive snaps in the Week 7 game against the New York Jets Thursday, Oct. 18. It was the first time all season he has played over 90 percent of the snaps in a game.
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski continues to look 100 percent, and he has re-emerged as a must-start each week like during his pre-injury days. With his history, there will always be a concern for injury, but the team doesn't seem to feel he needs training wheels any longer, and that should make fantasy owners smile.
