New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo figures to be the target of several last-ditch trade attempts from the Cleveland Browns leading up to the start of the 2017 NFL Draft, but the Boston Herald's Karen Guregian considers a potential deal a "long shot" that would require an "overwhelming offer".
Fantasy Tip: The Patriots have stood firm all spring on Garoppolo and consider him more valuable than the 12th overall selection, while the Browns have shown no desire to trade the No. 1 overall pick, so don't expect a deal to happen between now and Thursday. Texas A&M's Myles Garrett remains the favorite for the top pick, although the Browns' front office and coaching staff is reportedly split between him and North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky.

Fantasy Tip: These guys have a lot of running backs and only so many plays to go around. White made a strong case for Super Bowl MVP, and he, and Dion Lewis, have the most upside in the backfield that also includes Rex Burkhead and potentially Mike Gillislee. This could be a weekly mix and match, but White is a high-end RB3 right now.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots backfield is pretty stacked now with the likes of James White, Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and possibly Mike Gillislee, among others. Talk about a committee. This backfield could turn into a crapshoot if all these guys stay healthy. White and Lewis have the most upside, but they're all better fits for PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Interesting play. The Pats have moved on from LeGarrette Blount, for all intents and purposes, and it appears the Adrian Peterson intrigue has been shelved. Gillislee showed flashes of brilliance as a spell and situational back in 2016. He would be part of a committee in New England, as well. Think RB4 value for now.

Fantasy Tip: Brady probably will be limited during the offseason and will enter next season as one of the top quarterbacks for fantasy owners. He likely will be selected early in drafts and will be a weekly starting option.
