Fantasy Tip: Vereen's 2015 fantasy football value will obviously depend on where he's playing. However, he should be worth a roster spot in standard point-per-reception leagues regardless.

New England Patriots impending free-agent CB Devin McCourty said getting the franchise tag would be a worst-case scenario, but he isn't going to stress over it. McCourty added that he loves it in New England and that the franchise tag is player-friendly.

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin will draw interest from the New England Patriots if he is released by the Jets this offseason. Harvin is unlikely to return to the Jets unless he takes less than the $10.5 million he's owed next season. New England will be one of several teams interested in Harvin if he is let go. The Patriots tried trading for Harvin before he was traded to the Jets last year.
Fantasy Tip: There's still a lot that needs to happen before we can determine his fantasy value for the 2015 season. A new location will probably be good for Harvin, however, especially if it's with Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: We know how much the Patriots like their two-tight end sets, but New England already has Tim Wright and they may not be willing to pay Clay with their salary cap in dire straits.

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is about four weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Ridley hopes to be able to return to the field in May.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known who Ridley will play for next season, so his value will depend on his next team and his role. Ridley may not be able to find a starting job in free agency, but he should be able to find at least a backup job. Owners should consider Ridley as an option in the later rounds of drafts since he is coming back from the ACL injury.

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen is expecting a contract worth at least $5 million per season, according to a source. Vereen would like to remain with the Patriots, but there have been no indications on whether the sides are close on a new deal.
Fantasy Tip: Vereen will have more value in point-per-reception leagues no matter where he plays. When healthy, he's worth at least low-end RB2 consideration in PPR leagues and is no more than a flex play in standard scoring leagues.

New England Patriots impending free-agent PK Stephen Gostkowski is unlikely to receive the franchise tag because impending free-agent FS Devin McCourty is a better candidate for it. However, if McCourty signs a long-term deal, Gostkowski could receive the tag, which runs at a price of around $3.75 million this year.
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine the Pats letting Gostkowski walk in free agency. He has plenty of good years left in his leg, and he should remain one of the top fantasy booters in 2015, especially if he stays in New England.

Fantasy Tip: Gostkowski has been one of the best kickers in fantasy over the past several seasons. He likely will be one of the first kickers selected in draft next season.

New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis is scheduled to count $25 million against the salary cap next season, and the team will not be able to make other moves until they make a decision on Revis' status. The team would like to sign Revis to an extension so they can lower his salary cap number for 2015.
