Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:11:49 -0700

Patriots | Jacoby Brissett on the field

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:08:05 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was throwing passes during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and did not appear to be bothered by his thumb injury.

Fantasy Tip: Brissett's status for Week 4 is uncertain at this point, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He would receive limited pass attempts if he plays this week and would not be the best option for owners.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo throwing Wednesday

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:06:56 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was able to throw some passes during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and also worked on pocket mobility. He did not favor his shoulder during stretching or when he threw the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Garoppolo will have a chance to play in Week 4. He would be a risky option for owners if he plays because the team could limit his pass attempts. Owners probably should look for other options at quarterback this week.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski avoids setback

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:55:06 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) said he suffered no setbacks by playing in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: He should have a larger role in Week 4, but it might not be until Week 5 at Cleveland and with Tom Brady in tow that Gronk may be at full strength. He's a mid-to-low TE1 this week based on potential restrictions.

Patriots | Jacoby Brissett without a splint

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 07:13:06 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) didn't have a splint or tape on his right thumb Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Brissett is expected to be available for Week 4, and with the reports of Jimmy Garoppolo in pain and without mobility in his arm, Brissett could face the Buffalo Bills. He's a low-end bye week filler.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo lacks mobility in arm

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 07:11:42 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) is still in pain and doesn't have full mobility in his right shoulder, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: There's a good chance Jacoby Brissett (thumb) is under center against the Buffalo Bills this week. He'd be a low-end filler for a bye week quarterback.

Patriots | New England optimistic about QB situation

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 09:55:44 -0700

New England Patriots QBs Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) have reportedly made enough progress in their recoveries from their respective injuries that the team is hopeful both will be available in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo nearly played against the Houston Texans on a short week last week, so it seems likely he'll get the nod versus Buffalo. His return is key for owners, as pass-catchers such as Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski will have a chance to make some noise in fantasy with him under center. Garoppolo will be a high-end QB2 in this matchup before Tom Brady returns from his suspension in Week 5.

Patriots | T.J. Yates a possibility in Week 4?

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 22:27:26 -0700

Free-agent QB T.J. Yates is a possible option for the New England Patriots in Week 4 if they feel that QBs Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) won't be healthy enough to play, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. The Patriots worked out Yates on Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the team's incredible 3-0 start, someone like Yates wouldn't move the needle for fantasy owners, though if anyone could squeeze a "W" out of that situation it'd have to be head coach Bill Belichick.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount wearing down defenses

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 18:05:25 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount ran 15 times for 92 yards and a touchdown in the second half against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2 and 17 times for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the second half against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: As injuries force New England to play quarterback roulette, Blount has been a workhorse. He will be a borderline RB1 in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but he might be a nice sell-high candidate before Tom Brady returns from suspension to revitalize the passing attack.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo could play in Week 4

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:49:06 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has a chance to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo will be worth a look in DFS formats if he is able to play, but his status will have to monitored throughout the coming week.

Patriots | Jacoby Brissett likely needs thumb surgery

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:41:58 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) tore a right thumb ligament in the second half of his Week 3 outing Thursday, September 22, against the Houston Texans. He'll "likely" need surgery for stabilization.

Fantasy Tip: Future Hall-of-Fame coach Bill Belichick just continues to get tested. This injury should sideline Brissett in the team's Week 4 game versus the Buffalo Bills, and with Tom Brady (suspension) and Jimmy Garappolo (shoulder) also still out, the Patriots are currently without a quarterback. Well, except for the emergency one -- wide receiver Julian Edelman. It should be a real interesting week and change coming up for New England.

Patriots | Jacoby Brissett uses his legs in win

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 21:26:47 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett completed 11 of his 19 passes for 103 yards and ran eight times for 48 yards and a touchdown in a 27-0 win over the Houston Texans Thursday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: New England kept things simple in the passing game, but Brissett was able to make plays with his legs. If Jimmy Garoppolo is unable to suit up in Week 4, Brissett would be a roll-of-the-dice play in DFS formats.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount scores a pair

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 21:15:56 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount had 24 carries for 105 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-0 win over the Houston Texans Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been a workhorse for the Patriots thus far, topping 20 carries and rushing for at least 70 yards in all three games while scoring five times. However, his role could change dramatically once Tom Brady returns, so you may want to try to shop Blount while his value is at its peak.
