New England Patriots WR Tyler Gaffney is not a lock for the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Jeff Howe. He goes on to say there might be a scenario where Gaffney initially makes the roster, but the team likes someone else better on the waiver wire and makes a change.

The New England Patriots have been shopping WR Aaron Dobson, and they might be ready to move on after what has been a frustrating run for him with the team. Injuries have set him back and kept him from achieving his full potential. Now, beat writer Ian Logue predicts if he does reach his potential it might be somewhere else.
Fantasy Tip: Dobson is not someone fantasy football players will want to bother with right now. He is in danger of losing his roster spot, and if he does make the 53-man roster he has a lot of work to do to re-gain fantasy relevance.

Fantasy Tip: Brady will miss the first four games of the season but likely would not receive much playing time if he plays Thursday. Brady should still be a solid No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues, but owners will need a solid backup to use while Brady is out.

Fantasy Tip: LeGarrette Blount and James White will likely comprise a two-headed monster in New England's backfield, at least to start the season. White will presumably take over Lewis's role in the passing game and should be viewed as an RB3 at worst in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson has obviously not impressed the Patriots enough to be kept. He probably won't have much fantasy value if he is traded and can be avoided in traditional leagues.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) has not done much during practice since the start of training camp and could start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, which would keep him out for at least the first six weeks of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Amendola is activated before the start of the season. He could be a late-round option at this point, but owners may want to avoid him if he is going to miss at least six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Scoop Hogan up as a WR4. Given the injury history of New England's current group of receivers, Hogan could end up being one of Tom Brady's top targets at various time throughout the year.
