Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are hurting at wide receiver right now; Brandon LaFell ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is really the only healthy starting receiver. Edelman will probably miss this week, but keep tabs on Amendola and Dobson as the week continues. LaFell isn't a bad play on FantasyScore either way, but especially if Amendola sits.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon LaFell ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) may see increased targets this week with Danny Amendola and Dobson both hurting, but he is going up against the vaunted Denver Broncos pass' defense, so invest at your own risk.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) suffered a knee sprain in a Week 11 win over the Buffalo Bills. He is not expected to miss extended time, though. Amendola still may not play in Week 12, however. His status will depend on how he reacts to treatment and an increased workload as the week progresses.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) seems to have avoided a serious injury, but he should be monitored leading up to the Patriots' Week 12 contest. He's now the Patriots' No. 1 wide receiver with Julian Edelman out. If he does play, he has a really tough matchup against a top-tier Denver Broncos' pass defense.

Fantasy Tip: Just when Dobson's fantasy value is increased he suffers an injury that could sideline him. He's not guaranteed to miss this week, though, so track his status throughout the week.

Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on Amendola, who will have a tough matchup against the Denver Broncos in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Tom Brady obviously tried to work it into his favorite target, but with a banged up offensive line and plenty of double teams from Rex Ryan's defense, it just wasn't happening Monday. Gronk will look to rebound in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos, but it might be another slow go against their strong pass defense.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has yet to find the end zone since making his season debut Oct. 25, but he has been targeted at least six times in each of his five games while totaling 66 or more yards in each of his past three. He is a decent mid-tier FantasyScore option, and worth using as a WR3/4 or flex play in standard leagues, especially with the rest of the receiving corps so banged up.

Fantasy Tip: White appears to be ready to fill the role previously held by the injured Dion Lewis. He will be a popular addition in standard and PPR fantasy formats going forward.

Fantasy Tip: It was a disappointing game for Blount and his FantasyScore owners, and when the Pats had the ball in the red zone and ran it was James White punching it in, not Blount.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 22:44:24 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Brady was confused by a strong defensive game plan in the first half, and in the second half he scratched and clawed despite losing Aaron Dobson to injury early and Danny Amendola to injury midway through the game.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) returned from the locker room to the sideline for the fourth quarter of the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23, and he was walking around under his own power.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola is certainly needed with Aaron Dobson going down and Julian Edelman done for the regular season, so perhaps he did not re-enter the game as a precaution. More updates when we know them.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 20:08:50 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Amendola went for attention on the sidelines due to the issue, and he is questionable to return. Before leaving he posted the seventh 100-yard game of his career.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 20:08:07 -0800
Fantasy Tip: It's an unfortunate injury for Dobson, as he was in line to pick up plenty of targets with the Patriots banged up in the receiving corps.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 16:12:22 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Dobson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) probably will receive a bigger role in the passing game with Julian Edelman sidelined, but owners should be able to find better options to use.
