Patriots | No depth chart at RB in New England

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 09:26:05 -0700

New England Patriots RBs Mike Gillislee, Rex Burkhead, James White and Dion Lewis form a "deep, talented group" and any one of the four could be featured at any given time, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee, who was expected to be the early-down and goal-line back in New England this year, has missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury, giving Burkhead time to shine. White is locked into a passing-game role, while Lewis figures to contribute in just about every way possible on offense and special teams. Owners may be able to hit big on occasion in this backfield on a weekly basis, but all of them will be hard to trust as anything more than flex options.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead steps up

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 21:39:12 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead worked with the starters in a 27-23 loss to the Houston Texans in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19, finishing with seven carries for 20 yards and three catches for 50 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: With Mike Gillislee sidelined, it was Burkhead who was thrust into a major role. Even if Gillislee is ready for the start of the year, Burkhead is worth grabbing as a RB5 in case injury or Bill Belichick's fickle nature puts him in a featured role.

Patriots | Tom Brady sharp Saturday

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 21:29:13 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed six of his nine passing attempts for 67 yards and a touchdown in 27-23 loss to the Houston Texans in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: It's not surprise that Brady was already locked in. He will be at the helm of a loaded offense this season and should be treated as a QB1 in all formats.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski takes the field

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 19:09:52 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski made his first appearance in a preseason game since 2012, playing 15 of the first 17 offensive snaps but failing to make a catch against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Don't worry about Gronkowski being held without a catch. As long as he is healthy heading into the season, he is the top fantasy option at his position.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee expected to sit out

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 11:57:59 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee has missed most of training camp because of his hamstring injury and there is no timetable to return. He is expected to receive most of the carries when he is healthy but will also share playing time with other running backs on the roster. He could be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he is ready for the season.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski likely will sit out

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 14:48:08 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski probably will not play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has struggled with injuries over the last few years and probably will not play until the regular season. He is a risky option because of his injury history but is a No. 1 tight end when he is healthy.

Patriots | Tom Brady expected to play

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 14:43:04 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is expected to play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Brady probably will only play a few series during the game but wants to prepare for the regular season. He has one of the best group of pass catchers in the NFL and will be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee remains sidelined

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:43:20 -0700

New York England RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) did not travel with the team for their joint practices with the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee has missed a lot of practice time since the start of training camp because of his injury and there is no timetable for his return. He was expected to have a role similar to LeGarrette Blount had last season, but he may have a smaller role in the offense if he does not return soon. He has a chance to be a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he receives most of the carries.
