Fantasy Tip: Blount ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) could be the one they turn to, or they could go back to Jonas Gray ($3,400; 6.8%) after his benching. Blount figures to have the upper hand considering how much he came through for the team last week. This was also the period where he had his three best games last season. Blount makes for a good flex option with some uncertainty.

Fantasy Tip: Expect LaFell ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) to play Sunday, and he is a solid FantasyScore option. There projects to be plenty of scoring in the game against the Green Bay Packers, which is a plus for LaFell.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has 25 receptions on 33 targets over his past three games. He is a viable option in FantasyScore contests based on his role in the offense. The Patriots game against the Green Bay Packers projects to be an offensive shootout, which adds fuel to Edelman's stock.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) gets a boon because of FantasyScore's points-per-reception format, but his price is hefty given his minimal production (81 rushing yards, 20 receptions, 168 receiving yards and 1 touchdown) the last four games. There are plenty of backfield options in New England, too.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) is a viable FantasyScore option at quarterback this week, especially with an expected shootout against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen has not done much in the running game lately but has been a part of the passing game. Vereen has a price of $6,200 on FantasyScore and provides additional value in point-per-reception leagues.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has played well over the last month and appears to be one of the team's top receivers. He costs $6,200 on FantasyScore and may be a solid starting for owners if he plays.
Wed, 26 Nov 2014 14:41:14 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Edelman should be able to play despite the minor injury. Edelman is valuable in point-per-reception leagues because of the number of targets he receives, but only has two touchdowns. Edelman costs $5,700 on FantasyScore and could be a solid starting option.
Wed, 26 Nov 2014 14:32:27 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Brady has been playing well for the last few months and is a weekly starting option for owners. Brady has a price tag of $8,800 on FantasyScore and should be a good option if owners are willing to spend the money.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($6,200, 12.4%) has a high price but a good matchup with the Green Bay Packers in Week 13, who have given up 14 touchdowns two wide receivers this year.
Wed, 26 Nov 2014 07:39:51 -0800
New England Patriots TE Tim Wright has 23 catches on 26 targets this season. "Every time we throw to him it's a touchdown - we'll try to find him more down there," QB Tom Brady said after Wright's two-touchdown performance in Week 12. "He does a great job in the coverage and finds the open spots."
Fantasy Tip: Wright ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) is very much a boom-or-bust selection on FantasyScore.
