Fantasy Tip: Brady is suspended for the first four games of the regular season. However, he could do more with 12 games than most could with 16 in fantasy. He's at the bottom of the midrange tier of quarterbacks.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) appears to be moving well despite remaining on the Physically Unable to Perform list. He did warm up with teammates in practice Monday, Aug. 22, but he was not in full pads.
Fantasy Tip: It's still concerning that Amendola isn't off the PUP list yet. His injury history has been extensive and he should not be viewed as more than a WR5.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are mysterious when it comes to their players' injuries and injury designations. They'll take it easy with their star tight end leading up to the season. Since it's nothing serious, Gronk can still be drafted as the first tight end in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: White should take over as New England's primary pass-catching running back with Dion Lewis out indefinitely, with LeGarrette Blount still serving as the main runner. If White can stay healthy, he has a real chance to reach RB2 totals in PPR formats.

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is expected to miss two months because of his second knee surgery and likely will start the 2016 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Fantasy Tip: Lewis will not be back on the field until late October at the earliest, so owners should drop him on their draft boards. Lewis could still be a late-round option in leagues, but owners will need to stash him on the bench. James White should fill Lewis' role on offense and likely will be a middle- to late-round option in fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots OT Sebastian Vollmer (hip) has not been able to practice because of a nagging hip injury, according to a source. Vollmer could start the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list or could be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for a possible timetable after Lewis undergoes surgery. He likely will stay on the Physically Unable to Perform list and miss the first weeks of the season, but it is not known how long his rehab will be. Owners could consider using a later pick on Lewis and wait for him to return. James White should be more involved in the passing game and can be a middle- to late-round pick in drafts.
