Patriots | Limited practice for Chris Hogan

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:41:42 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan should be active for the team's Week 3 game and likely will be in the starting lineup. He will be facing a banged-up Houston Texans secondary this week and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Phillip Dorsett limited Thursday

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:35:36 -0700

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett has been limited over the last two days and may have a chance to play in Week 3. Dorsett posted solid numbers in the last game before he left with the injury. He could be a flex option if he plays this week, but owners could look for healthier options to use in their lineups.

Patriots | Danny Amendola a limited participant

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:32:08 -0700

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola will need to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared, so he may be a game-time decision. Amendola will have a solid role in the passing game when he returns, but owners may want to use other options this week.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:25:38 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Gronkowski is on track to play in Week 3, but owners should check on his status later in the week. Gronkowski is one of the best tight ends in the NFL when he is healthy and can be a starting option for owners but he does come with some risk.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead still not practicing

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 10:10:39 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) remained absent from practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead hasn't been used much through the first two weeks of the season, but he did catch three passes for 41 yards and a touchdown last week. If Burkhead is unable to play then James White gains even more value in PPR leagues and can be used as at least a flex.

Patriots | Danny Amendola able to practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:56:38 -0700

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion, knee) was able to take part in a limited practice on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola's status for Week 3 is uncertain at the moment, but itís a good sign he was able to get out onto the practice field even on a limited basis. He was out in Week 2, but had six grabs for 100 yards in the season opener.

Patriots | Chris Hogan limited in practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:56:09 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan is coming off a big game at New Orleans in Week 2, posting 78 yards and a touchdown on five grabs. He is a decent WR4 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 if he is healthy enough to play.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski doesn't practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:55:32 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: The oft-injured star tight end checked out of the Week 2 game against the Saints early due to his groin injury. His status for Week 3 is uncertain at the moment. If he cannot go then newcomer Dwayne Allen might be a solid streaming option against the Texans.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead absent from practice Wednesday

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 10:58:32 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (rib) was not at practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead has drawn the start each of the first two weeks, but it has resulted in a total of nine touches. Until his usage spikes dramatically, it will obviously be difficult to start him in fantasy.

Patriots | Key Patriots practice Wednesday

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 10:36:24 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) and WR Danny Amendola (knee, concussion) were among a group of injured players who were able to practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Owners of Gronkowski and Amendola have to be encouraged by this news, as the Patriots would have likely held out both players if there was any concern about setbacks and/or their status for Week 3. For now, it appears both are on the right track to start Week 3 against the Houston Texans. Don't hesitate to start either player, so long as both make it through the week without any further issues.

Patriots | Phillip Dorsett hopes to practice

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 15:54:59 -0700

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) said his knee is a little sore but hopes to participate in practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Dorsett recorded three catches and 68 yards in Week 2 before he left because of the injury. He likely will continue to be No. 3 receiver for the Patriots for the time being and could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he is active this week.
