New England Patriots LB Jerod Mayo (knee) is out for the year, but his financial status may improve as a result of the injury. A total of $4.5 million of his $6.25 million base salary was guaranteed for injury only, which means he still may collect that money if the Patriots decide to move on.

The New England Patriots may look for help at linebacker and on both the offensive and defensive lines before the trade deadline.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski played 53 of his team's 57 offensive snaps in the Week 7 game against the New York Jets Thursday, Oct. 18. It was the first time all season he has played over 90 percent of the snaps in a game.
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski continues to look 100 percent, and he has re-emerged as a must-start each week like during his pre-injury days. With his history, there will always be a concern for injury, but the team doesn't seem to feel he needs training wheels any longer, and that should make fantasy owners smile.

Fantasy Tip: It was even more of a surprise that Brandon Bolden had just one catch and no carries in the game. It just goes to show that predicting who the No. 2 back will be behind Vereen on a weekly basis will likely be a crapshoot.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has now thrown seven touchdowns over the past two games, and reports of his demise seem to have been overblown. When the Patriots have favorable matchups, Brady can still deliver for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: In the first game without Stevan Ridley, Vereen led the team in carries, rushing yards and receiving yards. Without much competition in the backfield, he should become one of the safer plays at the position at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly how the New England running backs will be utilized with Stevan Ridley out for the year, but Shane Vereen and Brandon Bolden figure to see most of the work out of the backfield tonight.

Fantasy Tip: Brady should be able to play despite the minor injury. Brady played well last week and could have another good game against the New York Jets. Brady costs $7,600 on FantasyScore this week.
