Patriots | Julian Edelman's return date unknown

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:32:02 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) hasn't taken part in team drills since suffering an ankle injury Aug. 2, but he feels that he is close to returning. However, he wouldn't say that he'll be ready to play in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 16 days. "Ask Bill (Belichick)," Edelman said. "We're taking it day by day. I think I'm 10 seconds better than the last 10 seconds."

Fantasy Tip: The Pats are typically hush hush with their injuries, even during the preseason and training camp. Edelman appears to be day-to-day, and we'd be pretty shocked if he wasn't available for Week 1 in three weeks. Edelman is much more valuable in point-per-reception leagues, and he's typically drafted as a WR2.

Patriots | More Reggie Wayne terms

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 07:42:02 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Reggie Wayne's one-year deal is worth a maximum $2.8 million. He received a $450,000 signing bonus and will have a $1.1 million base salary. He will earn $46,875 per game he's on the 46-man active roster and will earn $250,000 for 55 catches and $500,000 for 65 catches.

Fantasy Tip: Wayne is worth the WR5 flyer if he makes the team.

Patriots | Julian Edelman practices

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:36:37 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: This means that Edelman could finally play in the Patriots' third preseason game Friday, Aug. 28, against the Carolina Panthers. He will at least be ready to play in their regular season opener. Edelman is still in WR2 territory in PPR leagues.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell not at practice

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:29:51 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) was not at practice Tuesday, Aug. 25, as he continues to nurse a left foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list in late July, but he's able to return at any time, unless the injury lingers, of course. LaFell still has three weeks to fully recover, but he needs to practice first. View him as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

Patriots | Reggie Wayne lands $3 million deal

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 09:31:42 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Reggie Wayne's one-year deal is worth up to $3 million, including incentives. He received a signing bonus near $500,000.

Fantasy Tip: Wayne will have to make the team, but he's an excellent WR5 flyer in this offense.

Patriots | Brandon Gibson placed on IR

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:30:09 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon Gibson (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson was not expected to have a large role on offense, so the team will give his snaps to someone else. Julian Edelman, Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola likely will be the only Patriots receivers that have fantasy value this season.

Patriots | New England adds Reggie Wayne

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 10:15:24 -0700

Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) agreed to a one-year deal with the New England Patriots Monday, Aug. 24, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Wayne should have a good chance to make the final roster but he may have to earn a bigger role on offense with a solid final two weeks of the preseason. Wayne probably should not be selected during fantasy drafts but could be a waiver wire option if he plays well early in the season.

Patriots | Two contenders in NE for third-down RB

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 15:32:56 -0700

New England Patriots RBs James White and Dion Lewis combined for 12 carries and 45 yards and added six catches for 56 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Considering five of those six catches came from Lewis, that could give him a leg up in the race to replace RB Shane Vereen. Whoever gets this job could see some decent time in the Patriots' running game, so monitor how this goes.

Patriots | Pats meeting with Reggie Wayne

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:03:44 -0700

Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) is meeting with the New England Patriots Sunday, Aug. 23, and will undergo a physical during the visit, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if New England will sign Wayne, so owners should monitor the situation. Wayne probably would not have a big role in the passing game if he joins the Patriots and should be avoided in fantasy drafts.

Patriots | Former WR talks Tom Brady

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 16:02:12 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is being affected by his situation with the NFL and the alleged deflation of footballs in last season's playoffs, according to former Patriots WR Randy Moss. "Not only does it affect him, it affects everybody in his circle," Moss said. "It's just something as a professional, you just have to live with it and just move on from it."

Fantasy Tip: Brady currently stands to serve a four-game suspension at the beginning of the season. He is in an ongoing legal battle with the NFL. Both sides could reach a settlement in the near future. As long as Brady's suspension stands, he should be relegated to a QB2 in fantasy football.

Patriots | Tom Brady unchanged about settlement

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 11:37:56 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady still is not willing to accept any suspension as part of a settlement with the NFL, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's case is not close to being settled at this point, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Brady likely will be a starting option against most opponents this season but any suspension would hurt his value.
