New England Patriots news, rumors and injuries

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount was not signed by the team to replace RB Jonas Gray as the between-the-tackles runner. Blount's presence gives the team another tough inside runner in the potentially poor-weather weeks ahead.
Fantasy Tip: Gray ($6,500; 13.0% of your cap) will likely take a hit once Blount ($3,100; 6.2%) gets re-acclimated to the offense. Gray was already a risky option at his elevated price on FantasyScore because the Patriots' offense is so fickle from week to week. However, he remains the one to target in fantasy.

New England Patriots DL Dominique Easley (knee), OL Cameron Fleming (ankle, finger) and DE Chandler Jones (hip) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20. OL Marcus Cannon (hip) and DB Nate Ebner (finger) were limited.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman ($5,400) is still expected to play, but the Lions have been solid against the pass this year. It might be best to look elsewhere at the wide receiver position on FantasyScore.
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:52:19 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,600, 17.2%) should be good to go in a showdown with the Detroit Lions, who have given up just 12 passing touchdowns all season.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen how limited Edelman ($5,400, 10.8%) will be this week, if at all, but he doesn't have the most favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions.
Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:31:27 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Brady will be good to go this week against the Detroit Lions, and will cost $8,600 (17.20% of cap) in FantasyScore.

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray had a huge performance in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts, but ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss expects a difference offensive approach in the backfield against the Detroit Lions, who are ranked No. 1 in the league against the run.
Fantasy Tip: Gray's price has jumped after his big Week 11 performance to $6,500 at FantasyScore. Against the Lions, if the Pats indeed shift their game plan, it would seem Gray would have a tough time turning a profit. Shane Vereen ($6,400) is probably the smarter play as the pass-catching back out of the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Gray probably will not have another game like this the rest of the season, but he could receive most of the carries moving forward with Shane Vereen being more of a pass catcher. Owners should look to add Gray if he is available in their leagues, but they should not expect big games each week. He will be facing a tough Detroit Lions defense in Week 12 but probably should still be a starting option.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (hip) was able to return to the Week 11 game against the Indianapolis Colts in the second quarter after leaving the game earlier due to an apparent left hip injury.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 17:49:40 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Edelman went up for a catch and came down hard on his left side, and appeared to grasp the left hip area as he rolled out of bounds. He was receiving attention on the sidelines from the training staff.
