Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited in practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:37:28 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski went without a catch and received just one target in his 2016 debut last week, which burnt anyone eager to receive a return on their early-round investment. However, New England was in control of the game throughout, and there was little need to press Gronkowski into action. Tom Brady returns from suspension in Week 5, and Gronkowski projects to return to being an elite fantasy option then. This week, he is best viewed as a high-risk, high-reward commodity given the unknown surrounding his health and the quarterback situation.

Patriots | Jacoby Brissett limited in practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:30:43 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Brissett performed admirably for a third-string quarterback in Week 2 and 3. He did most of his fantasy damage with his legs and finished with 48 rushing yards and a score against the Houston Texans last week. With Tom Brady set to return from suspension in Week 5, Brissett isn't a viable long-term fantasy option, and especially since he isn't a lock to play this week. If Brissett does receive the start against Buffalo Sunday, Oct. 2, he checks out as a low-end QB2.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo limited at practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:24:55 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo was exceptional before suffering a shoulder injury in Week 2, and his status for Week 4 remains unknown. Tom Brady is eligible to return from suspension in Week 5, so Garoppolo's eyeing a one-week window to help fantasy players. However, given the uncertainty of his health, he's an ill-advised option to count on.

Patriots | Dont'a Hightower making progress

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.
