New England Patriots LS Danny Aiken (finger), CB Kyle Arrington (hamstring), CB Brandon Browner (groin), LB Jamie Collins (hip), OG Dan Connolly (ankle), OT Cameron Fleming (ankle), LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), DE Chandler Jones (hip), DE Rob Ninkovch (heel) and LB Chris White (ankle) were limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 25. The Patriots did not practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Brady may be the starting quarterback for Week 17, but he is expected to only see limited playing time since the team has already clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC. Brady probably is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore because of his uncertain playing time.
Thu, 25 Dec 2014 13:57:34 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Vereen may be one of several offensive players that see limited time during the team's Week 17. Owners on FantasyScore may want to look for a better option to use.
Thu, 25 Dec 2014 13:47:54 -0800
Fantasy Tip: LaFell may be active for the team's Week 17 game but could see limited playing time since the team has wrapped up a playoff spot. Owners probably should avoid using LaFell this week.

Fantasy Tip: Gray's role in the offense is uncertain for Week 17 since some of the offensive players could see limited time during the game. Gray could be a flex option on FantasyScore but is facing a solid Buffalo Bills run defense.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman was held out of the team's Week 16 game because of injury and could sit out another game since the team already has a playoff spot clinched. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using Edelman this week.
Thu, 25 Dec 2014 13:30:17 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Blount is a risky option to use on FantasyScore this week if he is active, because he could be pulled from the game early since the team has the No. 1 spot in the playoffs clinched.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is likely to be removed from the Week 17 game early. Beat writer Mike Reiss believes the team will pull Gronkowski after the offense exhibits a rhythm against the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Tip: Gronk could play long enough to reach the end zone, but it's quite a risk to take on FantasyScore given his injury history and little incentive to play much.
Thu, 25 Dec 2014 07:32:46 -0800
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is likely to be removed from the Week 17 game early. The team has clinched home-field advantage, and beat writer Mike Reiss believes the team will pull Brady after the offense exhibits a rhythm against the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Tip: Avoid Brady on FantasyScore this week because it doesn't make much sense to play him very long, if at all.

New England Patriots DT Vince Wilfork could miss out on $1.25 million this weekend against the Buffalo Bills. An escalator in his contract allows him extra money if he plays 70 percent of the team's defensive snaps and in the divisional round of the playoffs. The Patriots have already clinched home-field advantage and a first-round bye, but Wilfork could miss out on the incentives if he doesn't play Sunday, Dec. 28. Wilfork currently has played in 74.1 percent of the team's defensive snaps this year.

Fantasy Tip: Brady might play some in the regular season finale against the Buffalo Bills, but it is a difficult matchup against a good defense and pass rush, and the team is likely to play it safe and limit his playing time to preserve him for the playoffs. The team has nothing to gain since they have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs already in the bag. FantasyScore owners will want to shy away from TB12.
Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:34:16 -0800
Fantasy Tip: LaFell's status for the regular season finale against the Buffalo Bills is up in the air. FantasyScore owners will want to check back Friday for further updates on his status.
Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:33:33 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Vereen, , like many other Patriots regulars, could see limited touches or simply be held out since the team has already wrapped up the top seed in the AFC. Check back Friday for a clearer picture on his status.
Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:32:33 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Edelman is a big question mark for the regular season finale. Even if he is healthy enough to play, it is possible he could be held out as a precaution to get ready for the playoffs. The Patriots already have the No. 1 seed in the AFC wrapped up, so there is no sense risking further injury with their key components. Be careful.
