Patriots | Rex Burkhead believed to have sprain

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 06:06:26 -0800

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is believed to have a sprained knee and a bruise but avoided a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He'll have an MRI Monday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Dion Lewis' stock only gets better, and Mike Gillislee could become a factor again. James White could start to see more carries, too. However, it's anyone's guess which back will be featured any given week. Burkhead's fantasy season is likely over.

Patriots | Kenny Britt makes one reception

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 20:41:58 -0800

New England Patriots WR Kenny Britt made one reception for seven yards on his only target in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Britt was brought aboard for depth and he isn't someone to rely upon for fantasy purposes down the stretch unless disaster totally strikes in New England.

Patriots | Nothing doing for Danny Amendola

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 20:41:23 -0800

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola posted just 23 yards on two receptions across four targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola has managed just 11 grabs for 148 yards and no scores over his past four outings. That type of production makes him more of a WR4 in PPR leagues, and WR5 in standard play heading into Week 16.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks re-visits end zone

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 20:40:47 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks finished with four receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks had a couple of stinkers the past two games, posting just three grabs for 55 yards, but for those fantasy owners rolling the dice on him in fantasy playoff games he came through.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski back and productive

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 20:40:19 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski finished with nine receptions for a game-high 168 yards on 13 targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, his first game since serving a one-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was only off for one week and the suspension appears to have rejuvenated him like a late-season bye week. That's not what the rest of the NFL wanted to see.

Patriots | Dion Lewis steps in and does well

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 20:39:13 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis posted 67 rushing yards with a touchdown on 13 carries in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis was leaned upon heavily after Rex Burkhead (knee) checked out in the second quarter. If Burkhead misses time, Lewis could be a valuable contributor in fantasy leagues heading into Week 16. Mike Gillislee might also re-surface in the backfield.

Patriots | Tom Brady just misses 300 yards

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 20:38:46 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 22 of his 35 pass attempts for 298 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 16 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has managed just two touchdowns with four interceptions over the past three games, but he is still worth trusting as a low-end QB1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 16.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead out for the game

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 15:24:07 -0800

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) suffered a left knee injury in the second half of the Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he has been declared out for the rest of the game. He had a rushing touchdown before departing.

Fantasy Tip: With Burkhead on the mend it is Dion Lewis receiving a bulk of the work against the Steelers. Mike Gillislee could also be back in the picture in Week 16 if Burkhead is forced to miss time.

Patriots | Chris Hogan not expected to play

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 08:53:10 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is expected to be inactive for Week 15's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan had been listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited participant in all three practice sessions during the week. WRs Danny Amendola, Phillip Dorsett and Kenny Britt could see additional targets in his absence, with Amendola having value in PPR fantasy formats as a WR3 or flex option.

Patriots | Kenny Britt expected to play

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 08:50:56 -0800

New England Patriots WR Kenny Britt is expected to be active for the team's Week 15 game.

Fantasy Tip: Britt joined the team earlier this week and probably will see limited snaps against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Britt.

Patriots | Chris Hogan questionable for Week 15

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 15:00:36 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and he is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan was targeted five times in his return to the lineup Monday in Miami, but he managed just one yard on one catch. He is a risky fantasy play heading into a crucial time in the fantasy season. Start him as a WR4 or flex option at your own risk.
