Patriots | Michael Floyd unlikely to return to NE

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 09:22:14 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots) is a "long shot" to return to the New England Patriots after they acquired Brandin Cooks earlier this month, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days of home detention earlier this offseason as a result of his in-season extreme DUI, so the combination of that punishment and the Patriots' trade of Cooks doesn't leave much room for him. It looks like Floyd could be waiting until training camp before he finds a home, if even then.

Patriots | Belief Patriots will keep Jimmy Garoppolo

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 15:29:14 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo may end up sticking with the team for 2017 and beyond, as there is a "persistent belief within league circles" that they truly want to keep him. The thinking is that QB Tom Brady's "magic number" is three more years or perhaps fewer if he wins one more Super Bowl, and that head coach Bill Belichick has decided after one year of working with him that he doesn't believe QB Jacoby Brissett will become a "true franchise quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: For owners looking to ride Garoppolo in the upcoming campaign while he begins his journey on another club, it's starting to look like that may never come to fruition. Obviously, if he becomes a starter somewhere else, he'll be someone worth watching, but at this point in time it looks like he'll hold no fantasy value while remaining behind Brady in New England.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead terms

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 07:33:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead's one-year deal is worth $3.15 million. He receives a $1.1 million signing bonus, a $1.8 million salary and can earn $250,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead enters a crowded backfield with Dion Lewis and James White, and all three guys do a lot of similar things. Burkhead will be clearly behind those two, but he could be utilized in certain matchups. He's a late-round flier in fantasy.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks most successful in Superdome

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 18:51:49 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks played 21 games at home in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and 21 games on the road during his first three seasons in the league with the New Orleans Saints. While his receptions and targets were split pretty evenly, he accumulated 1,644 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in the Superdome, compared to 1,217 yards and seven touchdowns in away contests.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't deter owners from being high on Cooks going into the 2017 campaign, as it's just something to think about, since he'll be playing more in outdoor weather. Despite these splits, however, Cooks figures to have the potential to be a WR1, considering he still has a top quarterback throwing to him, and the fact that the Patriots have remarkably been amongst the three highest-scoring teams in each of the past seven seasons.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead signs with Patriots

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 14:02:51 -0700

Free-agent RB Rex Burkhead (Bengals) signed an undisclosed deal with the New England Patriots Tuesday, March 14, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The plethora of targets for Tom Brady continues to grow. The Patriots now have three capable pass-catching running backs in Dion Lewis, James White and Burkhead, among others. Of course, they will each lower each other's fantasy ceiling. Lewis and White are still the better bets for PPR leagues, but Burkhead is at least worth a late-round flier.
