Fantasy Tip: Blount has been a workhorse for the Patriots, but he is more of a low-end RB2 against a Baltimore defense that has allowed the fewest rushing yards and touchdowns this year.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle) did not participate in practice Saturday, Dec. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 14. SS Jordan Richards (knee), LB Elandon Roberts (hamstring), CB Eric Rowe (hamstring) and WR Matthew Slater (foot) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett probably will be able to play, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure he is in uniform. He has taken over the starting tight end job but has posted more than 35 yards in only one of his last six games. He can still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues, but owners can keep him on the bench if they have a better option.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 9. SS Jordan Richards (knee), LB Elandon Roberts (hamstring), CB Eric Rowe (hamstring) and WR Matthew Slater (foot) were limited during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett will be able to play against the Baltimore Ravens and will continue to be the starter at the position. He has struggled over the last three weeks and could be benched this week if owners have better options to use in their lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been an afterthought with six catches for 40 yards in the last three games combined. He could break out any week, though. The Baltimore Ravens pose a midrange matchup for Bennett Monday night, and he's a low-end TE1 option.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been held to only 40 yards combined in the last three games and has gone seven games without a touchdown. He will continue to be the team's No. 1 tight end with Rob Gronkowski out, but owners may want to consider using other options and keeping Bennett on the bench.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is facing the NFL's No. 1 ranked defense in the Baltimore Ravens this week. He has fared well against elite defenses in his career, however, amassing a 6-0 record with 12 touchdowns and just three interceptions in home games versus No. 1 defenses.
Fantasy Tip: Brady is a matchup-proof quarterback as has been evidenced throughout his career. He can spread the ball around to anyone and doesn't need Rob Gronkowski in order to be an elite fantasy quarterback. Start him as you normally would despite the difficult matchup.

Fantasy Tip: This will give Chris Hogan a boost in the offense with Gronk and Amendola out. Hogan had four catches for 23 yards and a touchdown and should be picked up if he was dumped in what has been a quiet season.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners were expecting a lot more for Bennett, especially with Rob Gronkowski done for the season. Bennett has been the ultimate boom or bust fantasy play lately, posting big stats or very little production at all.
Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:16:51 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Hogan has a total of four catches in three of his past four outings, and he has at least 70 or more receiving yards in two of the games. However, his production has been rather erratic and he is only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:16:20 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Mitchell has rolled up 17 receptions for 222 yards and three scores over the past three outings, emerging as a viable WR3 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.
