Patriots | Dion Lewis was hard to corral in 2017

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 20:33:10 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis ranked second in the NFL - among players who recorded at least 175 carries - with 4.44 yards gained after defenders closed within one yard of him in 2017, according to Next Gen Stats.

Fantasy Tip: The impending free agent took on a heavy workload down the stretch once Mike Gillislee landed in the doghouse and Rex Burkhead got hurt, proving himself as a very capable every-down back. The Patriots surprisingly chose to back off of Lewis and give more work to James White down the stretch, but the former isn't going to lack for suitors on the open market if he makes it there. Almost regardless of where he lands, he should be a solid RB2 for fantasy purposes.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski was already mulling future

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 18:37:43 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had been thinking about retirement "long before" the loss in Super Bowl LII, according to Jeff Darlington of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: This is potentially bad news for anyone hoping Gronkowski was just having an emotional response to the Super Bowl loss. His future remains up in the air at this point, but he would remain the top fantasy tight end if he does play in 2018. The uncertainty could make him a buy-low candidate in dynasty leagues.

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 00:18:04 -0800

Patriots | Brandin Cooks feeling good

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 09:23:27 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks (head) is encouraged by how he has felt since suffering a head injury during Super Bowl LII, according to people close to him.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks should be able to participate in offseason workouts if he does not suffer any setbacks. He posted solid numbers in his first season with the Patriots and should be a top-three receiver for the team next season. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues in 2018.

Patriots | Dion Lewis on the way out?

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 18:52:01 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis plans to test the market unless he is offered around $10 million guaranteed as part of a three-year deal, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, and Howe said the "early vibe" is that Lewis won't be back with the Patriots in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has had issues staying healthy, and it remains to be seen if he can be productive outside of New England's system. He'll be worth rostering in 2018, but his value could vary wildly depending on where he ends up.

Patriots | Extension possible for Brandin Cooks

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 18:24:29 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks wants to remain with the team, and Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald believes Cooks could offered an extension to lower his $8.459 million cap hit in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks was a bit boom or bust in 2017 as part of New England offense loaded with weapons, but he should still be considered a WR2 moving forward.

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 10:01:36 -0800
