Patriots | Chris Hogan listed as questionable

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:58:50 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan probably will be active for the game and could see more targets moving forward. He has posted at least 70 yards in two of the last three games but has only two touchdowns on the season. Hogan can be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett limited Friday

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:50:55 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett likely will be active for the game and should have a bigger role in the passing game with Rob Gronkowski out. Bennett has been quiet over the last few weeks but should be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.

Patriots | Julian Edelman questionable again

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:30:58 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) has been limited in practice each of the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 30, but he is fully expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams despite being listed as questionable on the Week 13 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: In New England, "questionable" is the new probable, and that is particularly the case with Edelman. The Patriots' slot receiver is in position to see another increase in targets following the loss of Rob Gronkowski, so if he isn't already in the low-end WR1 discussion in PPR leagues, he should be now.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett questionable for Week 13

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:56:35 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 13 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Rob Gronkowski's absence would seem to serve as a boost for Bennett's fantasy fortunes, but he may be too injured to take advantage and should be viewed as a TE2. Since his three-touchdown explosion in Week 5, Bennett has scored double-digit fantasy points in PPR only once and failed to find the end zone. Dion Lewis, James White and Malcolm Mitchell appear to be much better bets to see more targets moving forward.

Patriots | Questionable tag for Tom Brady

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:50:07 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) has been limited in practice each of the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 30, but he is fully expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams despite being listed as questionable on the Week 13 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's fantasy stock takes a hit with Rob Gronkowski out, but the Patriots still have more than enough weapons to keep their quarterback among the elite plays in fantasy most weeks, which he should be again this weekend.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski likely out for year

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 18:52:46 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is not expected to play again this season, according to a team statement.

Fantasy Tip: Grab Martellus Bennett where available. He should be a TE1 the rest of the way.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett returns to practice

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:31:49 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) was limited at practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett missed practice on Wednesday, but this news indicates he'll be good to go for Week 13. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, there will be nothing preventing Bennett from serving as a TE1 on a weekly basis to close out the 2016 season. He should be in all lineups.

Patriots | Chris Hogan limited at practice

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:28:21 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has come on in recent weeks to become a factor in New England's high-octane offense, so consider him in the FLEX conversation. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, Hogan has a better chance at sustaining that value.

Patriots | Patriots injury report for Thursday

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:24:06 -0800

Patriots | Julian Edelman limited Thursday

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:16:02 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: He'll be fine for Week 13. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, Edelman's already-high stock gets a slight boost, as he may see even more looks than usual. He's definitely a WR1.

Patriots | Tom Brady gets in limited practice

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:14:16 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Brady missed practice on Wednesday, but this session should ensure he suits up on Sunday versus the Rams. As is always the case, the future Hall-of-Famer will be one of the top QB1 options on the board.
