Fantasy Tip: Edelman continues to be a disappointing player for fantasy owners even with Tom Brady back in the lineup. He has not posted more than 38 yards in any of the last four games and still has not scored a touchdown. Edelman could still be a No. 3 receiver in leagues because of the matchup, but owners will be looking for more from him.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett likely will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7 and will continue to be a solid part of the team's passing game. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis is officially eligible to return to practice this week, but James White has performed admirably in his stead as the main passing-down back, so Belichick is probably willing to play this thing out a bit longer. Every indication so far out of New England is that the Patriots are treating Lewis with kid gloves, so a return after the team's Week 9 bye seems likely. Lewis is very much a stash-worthy player for owners hoping a boost right before the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan suffered a head injury last week and he might have been limited as a result. Wait to see him get back into the four-to-six target range before trusting him again in deeper fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots RB James White ran seven times for just 19 yards in the Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but he more than made up for it with eight grabs, 47 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets.
Fantasy Tip: White started the season slow, but he has piled up 17 catches for 160 yards and two scores over the past three games. He has re-emerged as a solid RB2 in all PPR fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman made it through the game without any setbacks with his foot injury, but he didn't do much with his seven targets. He should have a much better day in Pittsburgh in Week 7, especially for fantasy owners in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR).

Fantasy Tip: Bennett exploded for three touchdowns, but he certainly took a back seat to Rob Gronkowski in this one. That will continue, although there is still plenty of ball to go around to make Bennett a solid low-end TE1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has back-to-back 100-yard games, benefiting from the return of Tom Brady. After a slow start due to a turnstile at quarterback and hamstring issue, he has re-emerged as the top fantasy option at his position.

Fantasy Tip: Blount did not have any setbacks with the hip injury which had him listed as questionable. He remains a solid RB2 heading into Week 7 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 29 of his 35 pass attempts for 376 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals in his regular season home debut.
Fantasy Tip: Brady has passed for 782 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions in two games since returning from a four-game suspension. Needless to say, he is back and worth using in all fantasy formats heading into Week 7 against a Pittsburgh Steelers pass defense susceptible to the big play.
