Fantasy Tip: Brady is expensive at FantasyScore ($8,300), but it's justified. He's going against a weak New York Jets secondary - one that he threw for 261 yards and three touchdowns against in their first meeting this year. Play him with confidence.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($5,800) should be fine to play against the New York Jets this weekend. He hasn't done much in his last two games, but Week 16 is a good chance for him to get back on track against a very shaky Jets secondary. LaFell is a good option at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman will have to pass concussion tests before he is allowed to play, so owners should monitor the situation. Edelman costs $6,300 on FantasyScore but is a risky option because of his concussion.

Fantasy Tip: After having double-digit carries each of the previous three games, Blount ($4,500) had only eight carries in Week 15, as most of the running work came from Jonas Gray. Vereen ($4,700) continues to see his role limited, as well. It's anyone's guess what Bill Belichick will do on a weekly basis, but Blount likely remains your safest play at FantasyScore. However, this week against the New York Jets should be one to especially look to avoid any Pats runners.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has caught at least five passes in four of his last six games and has a favorable matchup against the Miami Dolphins this week. He costs $5,900 on FantasyScore and is a solid starting option.
Sun, 14 Dec 2014 09:11:46 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Edelman has been one of the team's most consistent targets in the passing game and is facing a Miami Dolphins defense that has had problems stopping wide receivers over the past month. Edelman costs $5,700 on FantasyScore and should be an attractive option.
Sun, 14 Dec 2014 09:11:02 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Vereen likely will not receive many carries this week but should be part of the passing game. Vereen costs $4,900 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to look for a running back that sees more playing time.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has not been at his best versus the Miami Dolphins in recent years. Since a monster 2011 Week 1 game, in which he threw for 517 yards and four touchdowns, Brady has thrown more than one touchdown pass just twice in six outings and has not topped 300 yards in four of those games.
Fantasy Tip: Brady primarily struggles in Miami, but last year the managed just 116 yards and a single touchdown pass at Gillette Stadium versus the Dolphins. He is a low-end QB1 in Week 15 and a bit steep at $8,400 (16.8%) on FantasyScore.
