Sat, 31 Jan 2015 18:52:54 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was named the 2014 NFL Comeback Player of the Year by The Associated Press Saturday, Jan. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski finished the year with 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns and showed that when he is fully healthy, he is still the top fantasy option at the tight end spot.

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 15:57:43 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 30, and is probable for the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: There was never any real doubt that Brady would play, and he is a solid option in FantasyScore for the Super Bowl, where he will cost $7,777 (15.55% of cap).

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has charges withdrawn

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 07:41:18 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount completed his 50 hours of community service, and his drug charge from earlier this season has been withdrawn, according to his attorney.

Fantasy Tip: Looking ahead to Sunday, Blount ($7,777; 15.5% of your cap) is a risky pick on FantasyScore when Marshawn Lynch is the same price. It's very possible the Pats use Blount to wear down the Seattle Seahawks defense. However, we'd much rather have Lynch at an equal price.

Patriots | Tom Brady practices fully Thursday

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 19:15:22 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) was able to go through a full practice session Thursday, Jan. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Brady will play against the Seahawks, but you might be better off going with Russell Wilson in FantasyScore when choosing a starting signal caller. Brady faces a much more difficult matchup against the Legion of Boom. Of course, he also has a better corps of receivers, including Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo impressing in practice

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 17:42:43 -0800

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo has been impressing in his mimicking of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson in practice. He has been studying the dual threat quarterback, and trying his best in practice to get the Patriots ready for Super Bowl XLIX. "I've had to get a lot faster real fast," Garoppolo said. "He's an athletic guy, so (I am) trying to extend plays and give those guys the best looks I can. It's a tough balance between studying their offense and studying our defense, so it's a little bit of time management."

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo likely won't see a snap in the Super Bowl, unless disaster strikes the Patriots, so he has no value in FantasyScore. However, he is trying to get his defense ready, and if his work is as good as advertised, it could mean less value for Russell Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is also battling a cold, but he'll be just fine for Super Bowl Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. He should be a solid play at FantasyScore for $7,777 (15.55% of cap).

Patriots | Tom Brady fighting a cold

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 09:29:15 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (illness) admitted that he is currently battling a cold, but he said he expects to be 100% ready for the Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 1. "I've had it for four to five days, my kids got sick and my wife's pretty sick right now," Brady said. "I brought it, unfortunately, to Phoenix, but I'll be fine. I'll be good." Brady is focused on rest and eating plenty of garlic, which he said is one of his "old remedies."

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,777, 15.55% of cap) will be fine for the big game, and this shouldn't influence your decision to select him for your FantasyScore lineup this Sunday.
