Patriots | Rob Gronkowski proclaims himself ready

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 11:39:17 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) told reporters Friday, Sept. 22, he is ready to play Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski is a regular on the injury report and leaves his owners wondering until late in the week whether or not he is going to play at least five times per year, but the payoff with him usually makes it worth their time. Gronkowski is always a solid bet to lead all tight ends in weekly scoring almost regardless of matchup, so donít hesitate starting him again this week in fantasy.

Patriots | Danny Amendola ready for Week 3

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 10:59:57 -0700

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee, concussion) proclaimed himself "good to go" for Week 3 versus the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: While an in-game injury is always a risk for someone like Amendola, the primary slot option in the New England offense is always a good bet for a huge PPR day. Even though the Patriots figure to limit his snaps, he should remain a solid WR3 option in most leagues.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead misses another practice

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 10:47:06 -0700

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (rib) did not participate in practice all week and will likely be ruled out for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead has drawn the start in each of the first two games and scored the Patriots' first touchdown last week, but Mike Gillislee and James White appear very much to be the primary options in the backfield. That should remain the case this week as well, although Burkhead's likely absence may lead to more snaps for Dion Lewis.

Patriots | Limited practice for Chris Hogan

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:41:42 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Patriots | Phillip Dorsett limited Thursday

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:35:36 -0700

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett has been limited over the last two days and may have a chance to play in Week 3. Dorsett posted solid numbers in the last game before he left with the injury. He could be a flex option if he plays this week, but owners could look for healthier options to use in their lineups.

Patriots | Danny Amendola a limited participant

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:32:08 -0700

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola will need to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared, so he may be a game-time decision. Amendola will have a solid role in the passing game when he returns, but owners may want to use other options this week.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:25:38 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Gronkowski is on track to play in Week 3, but owners should check on his status later in the week. Gronkowski is one of the best tight ends in the NFL when he is healthy and can be a starting option for owners but he does come with some risk.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead still not practicing

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 10:10:39 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) remained absent from practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead hasn't been used much through the first two weeks of the season, but he did catch three passes for 41 yards and a touchdown last week. If Burkhead is unable to play then James White gains even more value in PPR leagues and can be used as at least a flex.

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:56:38 -0700

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion, knee) was able to take part in a limited practice on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola's status for Week 3 is uncertain at the moment, but itís a good sign he was able to get out onto the practice field even on a limited basis. He was out in Week 2, but had six grabs for 100 yards in the season opener.

Patriots | Chris Hogan limited in practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:56:09 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan is coming off a big game at New Orleans in Week 2, posting 78 yards and a touchdown on five grabs. He is a decent WR4 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 if he is healthy enough to play.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski doesn't practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:55:32 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: The oft-injured star tight end checked out of the Week 2 game against the Saints early due to his groin injury. His status for Week 3 is uncertain at the moment. If he cannot go then newcomer Dwayne Allen might be a solid streaming option against the Texans.
