Fantasy Tip: He'll probably need a couple of weeks, but he should be stashed in your league. If by chance he's floating on waivers, grab and stash him.

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett was limited to 30 snaps on 57 offensive plays in a Week 7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, managing only one catch for five yards while running only 10 pass routes.
Fantasy Tip: Bennett is still No. 2 overall in scoring among tight ends but his production has been extremely up-and-down. He has mixed three PPR performances in which he has scored double figures with three in which he has posted 4.4 or fewer. It's beginning to look as if the Patriots see him more as a sixth offensive lineman and less as a player who can dominate games in which Rob Gronkowski receives too much defensive attention. Bennett should be considered a highly volatile low-end TE1 until further notice.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman has not been a big factor in the passing game this season but should have an opportunity to be more productive against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Edelman can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett should receive plenty of playing time against the Pittsburgh Steelers and probably will be targeted often. He should be considered a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has 24 touchdowns versus three interceptions in 10 career meetings versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, including the playoffs. Over his last five starts against them, he has 17 touchdowns and no interceptions.
Fantasy Tip: Brady has come out of the gates red-hot following his four-game suspension and doesn't appear likely to cool down against the Steelers. Armed with his best supporting cast in years, Brady is a candidate to finish as the top fantasy quarterback virtually every week. Start him.

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (knee), LB Jamie Collins (hip), DE Woodrow Hamilton (shoulder), LB Shea McClellin (concussion), WR Malcolm Mitchell (hamstring), LB Elandon Roberts (ankle) and DT Vincent Valentine (back) are listed as questionable for Week 7. Bolden did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 21, while the other players fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman likely will be able to play this week and should receive a decent amount of targets. He has not posted great numbers so far this season but can still be considered a No. 3 receiver because of the matchup.
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:57:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bennett should be active for the team's Week 7 game and has a favorable matchup this week. He should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis was always best viewed as a lottery ticket for owners with hopes of getting a second-half jolt, and the expectation has long been he could return after the team's Week 9 bye. That is still possible, although it is far from a given. This drama could go on for a little while longer, and New England could still end up ruling him out for the season. Owners in deep leagues should continue to hold, but those in shallow leagues without an IR spot may need to cut bait during the bye-week crunch.
