Patriots | D.J. Foster on the bubble?

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 19:37:38 -0700

New England Patriots RB D.J. Foster was effective catching the ball in spring practices, but Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com believes the offseason signings of RB Mike Gillislee and RB Rex Burkhead could make it tough for Foster to make the roster.

Patriots | Dwayne Allen not a lock

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 07:18:27 -0700

New England Patriots TE Dwayne Allen isn't considered a lock to make the team, in the opinion of beat writer Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Allen had a 35-406-6 line last year, and he caught eight touchdowns in 29 receptions in 2014. With so many options to throw to in New England, Allen is a very risky TE2.

Patriots | Julian Edelman was most targeted slot WR

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 19:27:51 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman had the highest target percentage from the slot of any wide receiver in the NFL during the 2016 season. He was targeted 29.1 percent of the time when he lined up in the slot, while retired WR Steve Smith (28 percent) and Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (26.7 percent) finished second and third, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be too much of a surprise, as Edelman has always been one of Tom Brady's favorite weapons throughout his career. That figures to continue in 2017, as despite entering his age-31 season, the eight-year veteran continues to be as productive as any wide-out in the league. Even with Brandin Cooks joining the receiving corps, it looks like Edelman can be trusted again as a high-end receiver.

Patriots | Nate Solder in final year of deal

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 15:32:59 -0700

New England Patriots OT Nate Solder is entering the final year of his current contract, and the team will not be allowed to place the franchise tag on him next season because it was part of the extension he signed a few years ago.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee dealt with injury

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 15:30:34 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (undisclosed) dealt with an undisclosed injury during offseason workouts, but running backs coach Ivan Fears said it did not appear to be a long-term issue.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check on Gillislee's status once training camp starts, but he probably will be fine for the start of the season. He is expected to take over the role that LeGarrette Blount had last season, which should help his fantasy value. He will have to share touches with other running backs during the season but could be a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis could see limited snaps

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 14:59:12 -0700

The New England Patriots could consider limiting RB Dion Lewis' regular season snaps in order to keep him healthy for all 16 games, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis should be part of a committee at running back this season and probably will be used as a change of pace back. He was limited to 298 rushing yards and 94 receiving yards in 2016 because he only played in seven games. Owners in most leagues can consider Lewis a late-round option that could be used as a flex option against certain opponents.

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 11:20:39 -0700

New England Patriots WR Andrew Hawkins could be on the roster bubble during training camp if the Patriots decide to keep only six wide receivers on their final roster, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee in prominent running role?

Tue, 04 Jul 2017 07:52:41 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee is the most likely back to fill the void left by RB LeGarrette Blount's departure, in the opinion of beat writer Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee has rushed for 5.7 yards per carry in each of the last two seasons in limited work. He'll be a matchup play, but he could be a sneaky RB3 against weaker defenses.
