Patriots | Chris Hogan gets golden opportunity

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 19:12:17 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan is likely to see extended reps with QBs Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo with WRs Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has a chance in training camp and the preseason, but when the games begin for real he will likely be nothing more than a WR4/5 or flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount avoids PUP list

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 19:11:40 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip), who missed all of the spring session due to a hip injury, was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and appears ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Blount might be fighting for his roster spot in training camp and the preseason. If he can make the roster he is a decent RB4 or RB5 for depth, but avoid him outside of the later rounds in most fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Three notable Pats put on PUP list

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 16:13:35 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) and RB Dion Lewis (knee) were all placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola has had trouble staying on the field throughout his career and is an untrustworthy fantasy football commodity. Leave him to the waiver wire in standard leagues. Keep an eye on Edelman's progress this fall, but if he's ready for Week 1, he should be firmly in WR2 territory with more intrigue in PPR leagues. Despite a strong season for Lewis in 2015 before his injury, his injury makes him extremely risky. Not to mention the fact he's never had more than 50 carries in a season in the NFL. He's running back depth in deeper leagues and could be a flex option in certain weeks in PPR formats.

Patriots | Tom Brady can't work with teammates

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:23:13 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will be prohibited from engaging in any football-related activities or discussions during the course of his four-game suspension, even if he is away from the team facility, according to NFL vice president of communications Brian McCarthy. The ban also prohibits Brady from attending games and practices as a spectator and receiving game and practice film from club personnel.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is still expected to see a good deal of repetitions with the first-team offense during training camp before his suspension goes into effect Sept. 3, and he won't rejoin the Patriots until Oct. 3, prior to the team's Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns. The 38-year-old is still capable of putting up solid numbers and should be viewed as a midrange option at the position, although he could remain on the draft board later than normal due to the suspension.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount on the bubble?

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 07:51:08 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount's (hip) roster spot isn't a given, but there shouldn't be any issues if he returns from his season-ending hip injury and runs hard.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has RB5 luster in fantasy, but the Patriots tend to feature different running backs in different matchups. He has had big performances in the past and is worth taking a shot on late.

Patriots | New England likes Jimmy Garoppolo

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 12:03:28 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo has earned the confidence of teammates and coaches, according to Phil Perry of

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo doesn't have much experience, as he has only played in two regular season games over his two-year career. He'll be more of a cheap daily fantasy play in good matchups for the first four weeks of the season.

Patriots | Julian Edelman feeling better

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:11:42 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) said his injured foot is feeling better, but he is not sure when he will be cleared to practice.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman should have a decent chance to be ready for the start of the regular season, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. His fantasy value will take a hit since Jimmy Garoppolo is starting the first four games, but he should still be a solid starting option for owners.

Patriots | First-team reps for Tom Brady

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:23:32 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady should still receive a good amount of first-team repetitions during training camp despite his four-game suspension. QB Jimmy Garoppolo could then take the majority of first-team reps once preseason ramps up, according to's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Brady will miss a quarter of the regular season due to the suspension, but he's still Tom Brady, and he can still put up gaudy numbers for the remaining 12 games. One might be able to steal him later than usual in fantasy drafts.

Patriots | Tom Brady ends appeal

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 10:06:03 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady announced he will have no further action with the legal process against the NFL in appealing his four-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: So that's it, DeflateGate has ended. Jimmy Garoppolo will start the first four games of the season, and Brady will be eligible for Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns. Garoppolo will face the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills, which all feature capable defenses. He's nothing more than an injury replacement as a QB2 in fantasy. Brady falls to the bottom of the midrange at the position.

Patriots | Appeals court rejects Tom Brady

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 06:54:01 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady had his request for a new hearing on his four-game suspension rejected by a federal appeals court Wednesday, July 13. Brady was asking for the full 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to hear the case. Brady's remaining hope is to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Fantasy Tip: There seems to be pessimism looming on Brady's status for the first four games. There is a chance that he could use measures to extend the ordeal to the 2017 season. If Brady misses the first four games, he'll slide down a couple of notches in the fantasy pecking order, but he'd still remain in the midrange of the position. Jimmy Garoppolo would be an injury-replacement option the first four weeks if the suspension stands.

Patriots | Danny Amendola feeling good

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 12:08:27 -0700

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) said he feels really good after undergoing two minor procedures this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola's health has been an issue his whole career, which makes him untrustworthy in the fantasy realm. He's in low-end WR4 to high-end WR5 territory.
