Patriots | Rob Gronkowski unlikely to play in full

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 07:33:50 -0800

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.

Patriots | Tom Brady likely to be pulled early

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.

Patriots | Vince Wilfork could lose hefty amount of money

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:51:08 -0800

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.

Patriots | Full practice for Tom Brady

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:34:47 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 24.

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.

Patriots | Limited practice for Brandon LaFell

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:34:16 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder) was a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

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.

Patriots | Shane Vereen limited in practice

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:33:33 -0800

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) took part in practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Dec. 24.

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.

Patriots | Julian Edelman still on the mend

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:32:33 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (concussion, thigh) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

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.

Patriots | Limited practice for Jonas Gray

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:32:02 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray (ankle) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Gray might actually see touches than he has been since the Patriots are likely to rest some players with the top seed in the AFC already locked up. As such, Gray could be a solid contributor for FantasyScore owners in the regular season finale.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount limited Wednesday

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:31:32 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Check back on Blount's status Friday when the official injury report comes out. The Bills rank 13th in the NFL against the rush, and it's uncertain if the Patriots will rest players since they have the No. 1 seed already sewn up. It might be best to shy away from Blount for FantasyScore purposes just to be on the safe side.

Patriots | Tom Brady near roster guarantee

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 05:51:17 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is due $24 million fully guaranteed from 2015-17 if he's on the team's roster Saturday, Dec. 27, at 4:00 p.m. ET.

Fantasy Tip: Let's count on that happening. Brady is a risky start on FantasyScore this week. The team has clinched home-field advantage and face a tough defense in the Buffalo Bills. There is very little incentive for Brady to play much in Week 17.

Patriots | Tom Brady doesn't want rest

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 10:48:22 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady would prefer to play in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills despite having already locked up a first-round bye and home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs. "There's a lot of guys that could probably use a little time off," Brady said. "But at the same time, this is football season and you play through whatever you got and you deal with those things when your season ends. All those things are coach's decisions. I want us to go out and win, that's what I want. I don't care about resting. I want to go out there and try to kick some butt. That's what I want to do." Brady was sacked four times and was 23-for-35 for just 182 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Week 16 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Brady's wishes, the ultimate decision will come down to Bill Belichick as to whether Brady and the rest of his offensive weapons are rested against the Bills. Even if Brady starts, there's a good chance he won't finish out the game, making him a player to avoid at FantasyScore this weekend.
