Patriots | Darrelle Revis likely to become FA

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 12:29:09 -0800

New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis could very well become a free agent this offseason as the team is reportedly unlikely to pick up his $20 million option, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. Revis figures to hit the free-agent market for the second year in a row.

Patriots | Stephen Gostkowski receives tag

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:53:02 -0800

New England Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski received the franchise tag Monday, March 2, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gostkowski has been the top fantasy kicker for three straight seasons and should be considered the top kicker in any scoring format heading into 2015 drafts.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley could receive prove-it deal

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:03:33 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) could be a coup for a team willing to take a chance on his recovery from anterior cruciate ligament surgery this offseason. He's likely to receive an offer for a "prove-it" one-year deal around the $1.25 million range with incentives.

Fantasy Tip: The uncertain future for Ridley as it relates to both free agency and his recovery from ACL makes him a cloudy fantasy football asset entering the 2015 season. Depending on where Ridley lands, he could be worth a stab in the later rounds of standard fantasy drafts for running back depth.

Patriots | Shane Vereen not asking for $5 million

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 09:54:45 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen made it clear that he doesn't expect to make $5 million in 2015, as was previously reported.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's 2015 fantasy football value will obviously depend on where he's playing. However, he should be worth a roster spot in standard point-per-reception leagues regardless.

Patriots | NE interested in Percy Harvin if cut

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 12:07:54 -0800

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin will draw interest from the New England Patriots if he is released by the Jets this offseason. Harvin is unlikely to return to the Jets unless he takes less than the $10.5 million he's owed next season. New England will be one of several teams interested in Harvin if he is let go. The Patriots tried trading for Harvin before he was traded to the Jets last year.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a lot that needs to happen before we can determine his fantasy value for the 2015 season. A new location will probably be good for Harvin, however, especially if it's with Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Patriots | Charles Clay may not be an option for NE?

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 10:28:47 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent TE Charles Clay may not be an option for the New England Patriots after all once free agency commences, according to Boston Herald beat reporter Jeff Howe.

Fantasy Tip: We know how much the Patriots like their two-tight end sets, but New England already has Tim Wright and they may not be willing to pay Clay with their salary cap in dire straits.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley ahead of schedule

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 15:49:40 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is about four weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Ridley hopes to be able to return to the field in May.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known who Ridley will play for next season, so his value will depend on his next team and his role. Ridley may not be able to find a starting job in free agency, but he should be able to find at least a backup job. Owners should consider Ridley as an option in the later rounds of drafts since he is coming back from the ACL injury.

Patriots | Shane Vereen hoping for $5 million

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:20:06 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen is expecting a contract worth at least $5 million per season, according to a source. Vereen would like to remain with the Patriots, but there have been no indications on whether the sides are close on a new deal.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen will have more value in point-per-reception leagues no matter where he plays. When healthy, he's worth at least low-end RB2 consideration in PPR leagues and is no more than a flex play in standard scoring leagues.

Patriots | Stephen Gostkowski unlikely for tag

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 10:38:28 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent PK Stephen Gostkowski is unlikely to receive the franchise tag because impending free-agent FS Devin McCourty is a better candidate for it. However, if McCourty signs a long-term deal, Gostkowski could receive the tag, which runs at a price of around $3.75 million this year.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine the Pats letting Gostkowski walk in free agency. He has plenty of good years left in his leg, and he should remain one of the top fantasy booters in 2015, especially if he stays in New England.

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 14:52:29 -0800

Patriots | Stephen Gostkowski may be tag candidate

Sun, 15 Feb 2015 09:36:31 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent PK Stephen Gostkowski could be a candidate for the franchise tag if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement on a new contract.

Fantasy Tip: Gostkowski has been one of the best kickers in fantasy over the past several seasons. He likely will be one of the first kickers selected in draft next season.
