New England Patriots TE Tim Wright played a season-high 60 snaps in Week 12 against the Detroit Lions, which shattered his previous best of 21 snaps, which he hit twice. He finished with five receptions for 36 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Anyone who took a chance on Wright in FantasyScore were tremendously pleased by his amazing output, while those who spent on Rob Gronkowski were less than thrilled with the distribution.

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray did not play in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions after he did not report to the team's facility Friday, Nov. 21. He missed practice because he overslept. After the game, head coach Bill Belichick said only: "We do what we think is best. That's what we did today."
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners who took a chance on Gray this week after his 199-yard, four-touchdown performance last week were obviously burned badly.

Fantasy Tip: Blount was running mean, as he averaged 6.5 yards per carry and made up for the absence of Jonas Gray, who was held out after missing team meetings this week. Blount could be worth a look in future weeks in FantasyScore if he continues to see regular touches.

Fantasy Tip: Gray ($6,500; 13.0% of your cap) is quite pricey to be on the wrong side of Bill Belichick's patience. He's a risky RB2 on FantasyScore.

New England Patriots OT Cameron Fleming (ankle, finger) and DE Chandler Jones (hip) have been ruled out for Week 12, while OT Marcus Cannon (hip), DT Dominique Easley (knee) and FS Nate Ebner (finger) are listed as questionable. Cannon and Ebner were limited during practice Friday, Nov. 21, while Fleming, Jones and Easley did not practice.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman should be able to play in Week 12 despite being limited during practice. Edelman cost $5,400 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to avoid using him since he will be facing a tough Detroit Lions defense.

Fantasy Tip: Gray's role for Week 12 is uncertain since he missed practice Friday, Nov. 21, for showing up late. There is a chance LeGarrette Blount may receive some of Gray's carries during the game. Gray costs $6,500 on FantasyScore and may not be a great option this week.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has been able to play the last several weeks despite the injury and should be ready to play again. Brady will be going against a Detroit Lions defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Brady costs $8,600 on FantasyScore but may not be able to return the value you spend on him.

Fantasy Tip: Gray is not a great FantasyScore play in Week 12, especially with a FantasyScore price of $6,500 (13.0% of cap). With Gray being late for practice, there is a chance that LeGarrette Blount could get more work this week. Blount should also be avoided in FantasyScore as the matchup against Detroit is not a great one because the Lions are one of the better teams at stopping the run.

Fantasy Tip: We don't know the reason for Gray's absence, so stay tuned and check back for updates. If Gray is forced to miss the game against the Detroit Lions, LeGarrette Blount ($3,100) could step into a significant role. However, he wouldn't be a very wise purchase, as the Lions are one of the best squads at stopping the run this year.

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount was not signed by the team to replace RB Jonas Gray as the between-the-tackles runner. Blount's presence gives the team another tough inside runner in the potentially poor-weather weeks ahead.
Fantasy Tip: Gray ($6,500; 13.0% of your cap) will likely take a hit once Blount ($3,100; 6.2%) gets re-acclimated to the offense. Gray was already a risky option at his elevated price on FantasyScore because the Patriots' offense is so fickle from week to week. However, he remains the one to target in fantasy.

New England Patriots DL Dominique Easley (knee), OL Cameron Fleming (ankle, finger) and DE Chandler Jones (hip) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20. OL Marcus Cannon (hip) and DB Nate Ebner (finger) were limited.
