New England Patriots news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 22 Sep 2014 08:48:14 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) could have a legit calf injury because his touch and velocity has been off in the early part of the season. Brady also rushed a few throws in Week 2 after taking some hits the previous week. Brady appears to have a lack of trust with his offensive line, in the opinion of beat writer Chad Finn.
Fantasy Tip: Brady started slowly last season but eventually picked it up. He could very well do the same this season, or this could be a typical regression for a 37-year-old quarterback. Either way, he's a very shaky QB1 right now.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has yet to have a banner fantasy day thus far, but Edelman is playing like a WR1 in PPR leagues. Brady is a weak QB1 right now due to the lack of continuity on offense and should only be played in good matchups right now.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) was able to play in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders. He posted three receptions for 44 yards and the only touchdown of the game. Gronkowski was also targeted six times.
Fantasy Tip: Gronk nearly had another touchdown in the back of the end zone, but it was knocked away by Charles Woodson at the last second and Gronkowski couldn't haul it in. He didn't roll up big yardage, but he obviously is a vital cog in the offense when healthy, and a must-start fantasy option when he plays.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($7,300; 14.6% of the cap) is a good start in PPR leagues. However, his price tag on FantasyScore is cumbersome considering how much the team spreads the ball around.

Fantasy Tip: Thompkins ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is a bare-minimum flex option on FantasyScore this week. The offense spreads the ball around a lot, which makes him a potential diamond in the rough today. Keep in mind, though, that he is the fifth option at best.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($7,300; 14.6% of the cap) is a shaky RB1 in non-PPR leagues against the Oakland Raiders. The offense has been struggling and spreads the ball around. He's worth a start in PPR leagues, but be aware of the number of risks involved.

New England Patriots DE Michael Buchanan (ankle), LB Jamie Collins (thigh), CB Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), FS Don Jones (hamstring) and C Ryan Wendell (knee) are listed as questionable for Week 3. OG Dan Connolly (knee) and DT Sealver Siliga (hand) are listed as probable. All of the players were limited during practice Friday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has not put up big numbers so far this season but has the ability to have a big game each week. Owners would have to spend $7,600 at FantasyScore for Gronkowski, who could have a solid game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman should be ready to play in Week 3 despite his limited participation. Edelman is one of the top receiving options in the team's passing game and should receive a lot of targets. He costs $6,000 on FantasyScore, which appears to be a solid price for him.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen was limited during the entire week of practice and may not be 100 percent entering the game. Vereen costs $7,300 on FantasyScore this week, which may be too expensive for some owners.
