Patriots | Tom Brady expected to face Los Angeles

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 07:22:31 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) is expected to start Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Brady was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a must-start option in all fantasy leagues, even with TE Rob Gronkowski out for the remainder of the season.

Patriots | Julian Edelman to play Sunday

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 07:15:07 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) will play in Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report due to a lingering foot injury. Despite this, he is expected to see a decent number of targets this afternoon and should be viewed as a low-end WR1 option in all fantasy formats.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett to play Sunday

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 07:12:35 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) will play in Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. With Rob Gronkowski sidelined for the remainder of the season, Bennett should see an increased number of targets going forward and should be viewed as a TE1 despite several recent disappointing performances.

Patriots | Malcolm Mitchell beating press coverage

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 19:59:25 -0800

New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell has been catching everything in practice and is learning how to beat press coverage, according to CB Eric Rowe.

Fantasy Tip: Mitchell has nine catches and three scores in the last two games, and he should be scooped up off waivers where available in case his role in the offense continues to grow.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski place on IR

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 13:28:45 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured Reserve list Saturday, Dec. 3, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski will miss the rest of the season, so he can be dropped in all leagues. Martellus Bennett will serve as the Patriots' No. 1 tight end and should be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Chris Hogan listed as questionable

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:58:50 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan probably will be active for the game and could see more targets moving forward. He has posted at least 70 yards in two of the last three games but has only two touchdowns on the season. Hogan can be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett limited Friday

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:50:55 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett likely will be active for the game and should have a bigger role in the passing game with Rob Gronkowski out. Bennett has been quiet over the last few weeks but should be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.

Patriots | Julian Edelman questionable again

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:30:58 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) has been limited in practice each of the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 30, but he is fully expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams despite being listed as questionable on the Week 13 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: In New England, "questionable" is the new probable, and that is particularly the case with Edelman. The Patriots' slot receiver is in position to see another increase in targets following the loss of Rob Gronkowski, so if he isn't already in the low-end WR1 discussion in PPR leagues, he should be now.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett questionable for Week 13

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:56:35 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 13 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Rob Gronkowski's absence would seem to serve as a boost for Bennett's fantasy fortunes, but he may be too injured to take advantage and should be viewed as a TE2. Since his three-touchdown explosion in Week 5, Bennett has scored double-digit fantasy points in PPR only once and failed to find the end zone. Dion Lewis, James White and Malcolm Mitchell appear to be much better bets to see more targets moving forward.

Patriots | Questionable tag for Tom Brady

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:50:07 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) has been limited in practice each of the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 30, but he is fully expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams despite being listed as questionable on the Week 13 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's fantasy stock takes a hit with Rob Gronkowski out, but the Patriots still have more than enough weapons to keep their quarterback among the elite plays in fantasy most weeks, which he should be again this weekend.
