Thu, 30 Oct 2014 13:25:26 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) practiced fully Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has been riding a wave of momentum and should be worth the $8,100 he'll cost on FantasyScore in what could very well be a shootout with the Denver Broncos.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has been on a hot streak for the last several games and should be able to play in Week 9. Brady costs $8,100 on FantasyScore and should be a solid starting option for owners.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski on hot streak

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 11:44:38 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is averaging over 100 yards and one touchdown per game over the last month. QB Tom Brady has shown so much confidence in Gronkowski that he threw to a covered Gronkowski near the goal line for a touchdown in Week 8 instead of an open WR Julian Edelman. Brady has a 129.1 passer rating over the last month with Gronkowski on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski looks to be fully healthy and is a great starting option in all leagues no matter the matchup. Gronkowski has a price of $7,400 on FantasyScore and is a good option if owners are willing to pay the price.

Patriots | Jonas Gray emerges

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 07:59:03 -0700

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray rushed 17 times for 86 yards in the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26. Gray ran decisively, which is something the team has seen in the downhill runner since training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Gray appears to be the team's primary runner inside the tackles, and they're using Shane Vereen for outside runs and in the passing game. This usage really hinders Vereen's fantasy potential, but he's still a weekly RB2/flex option on FantasyScore. Gray will be a flex option to consider next week against the Denver Broncos.

Patriots | Julian Edelman benched

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 06:39:48 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman played in just 45 of the 74 offensive snaps Sunday, Oct. 26. He played in 45 of the team's first 52 snaps, but was apparently benched. The team didn't announce an injury, but he had two drops.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman still remains a WR2 option on FantasyScore against the Denver Broncos in Week 9.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell continues ascension

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 06:39:05 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell played in 61 of the 74 offensive snaps in Week 8 Sunday, Oct. 26. He had 11 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown in the game.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell's rise has been swift, and his price on FantasyScore is likely to adjust to such. He is a good flex option at the right price next week against the Denver Broncos.

Patriots | Tom Brady stays red hot

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 14:12:47 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 30 of his 35 pass attempts for 354 yards and five touchdowns in Week 8 against the Chicago Bears. After a slow start to the season, Brady has thrown for 1,268 yards, 14 touchdowns and no interceptions over the past four games. Sunday marked the sixth time in his career he threw five or more touchdowns in a single game. His 148.4 passer rating was the eighth best of his career.

Fantasy Tip: Reports of Brady's demise were greatly exaggerated. He has been one of the top fantasy quarterbacks over the past month, and a bargain at FantasyScore in Week 8 at $7,800 (or 15.6 percent of the cap).

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski left game early

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 13:12:04 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (dehydration) left the game early Week 8 because of dehydration and did not return.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski probably was taken out of the game as a precaution since the Patriots were up comfortably in the game. Owners can watch for an update in the next day or so, but he should be able to play in Week 9.
