Patriots | Brandin Cooks catches TD pass

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 05:05:14 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught four passes for 65 yards and scored a touchdown in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks believes the longer the season goes, the more explosive he can be. This was his third touchdown of the season in a crowded Patriots receiving corps, and Cooks makes a good WR2 companion to Chris Hogan.

Patriots | Chris Hogan has 71 receiving yards

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 05:00:26 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught four of his six targeted passes for 71 yards in a Week 7 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan had been hampered in practice by rib issues, but now that he's back to pretty much full speed you can look at Hogan as a No. 3 receiver moving forward.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead has 31 yards in return

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 04:46:37 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead, who missed time due to a rib injury, returned in Week 7 and had six rushes for 31 yards. Burkhead also caught his only pass for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't a bad return for Burkhead, but he remains a flex option due to the state of flux in New England's crowded backfield.

Patriots | Dion Lewis leads rushing attack

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 04:39:52 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis had 76 yards on 13 carries in a week 7 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily that would be great, but in New England's offense it could get you a bench spot next week. This is not a knock on Lewis, it's just a reminder that New England could turn to Rex Burkhead or James White the following week and make Lewis owners mad. It's best to avoid the committee altogether.

Patriots | Tom Brady tosses two TDs

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 04:31:07 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was 21-of-29 for 249 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a Week 7 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Brady did most of his damage before the fog rolled in, but he still completed all but eight of his pass attempts. In short, Brady did his usual good job and he will now face a Los Angeles Charges squad that overcame the Denver Broncos' vaunted defense.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks wants big plays

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 19:55:23 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks said he believes he will be able to showcase his explosiveness more often as the season goes on. "At the end of the day, I just want to stick to the process, perfect my craft and pay attention to the little details," Cooks said. "And I feel like it's going to come."

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has just two touchdowns this year, but he has still been a big part of the passing game, delivering at least 85 yards in four of the six games. He is locked in as a WR2 heading into a Week 7 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Patriots | Tom Brady working on accuracy

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 18:43:19 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady said Friday, Oct. 20, that he doesn't feel his accuracy is where it needs to be, especially in the red zone where the Patriots have scored 14 touchdowns in 25 trips.

Fantasy Tip: For someone who is disappointed in his accuracy, Brady continues to put up QB1 numbers on a weekly basis, and he is a must-start option against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 15:03:06 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan recorded only one catch and 19 yards last week but should see more targets this week. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues as long as he is active.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead not on injury report

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 14:57:07 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead likely will be back in uniform after missing several games because of his injury. He will be sharing work with Mike Gillislee, James White and Dion Lewis if they are all active. Owners probably should look for other options to use this week since Burkhead's role is uncertain.

Patriots | Dion Lewis' usage trending up

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 19:23:48 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has rushed 18 times for 105 yards in the last two games after rushing a combined 12 times for 46 yards in the first four games.

Fantasy Tip: While the trend is encouraging, the Patriots are notoriously fickle with how they distribute carries. Lewis is a desperation flex play against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.
