New England Patriots FB James Develin (leg) is fully recovered from a broken right leg that cost him the entire 2015 season. He's ready to return to form; without him in 2015, the Patriots' rushing game posted its worst totals since Develin joined the team in 2012.
Fantasy Tip: Develin himself has zero fantasy appeal, but his presence helps solidify the backfield's prospects as a whole. That said, New England is a tough place to consistently find fantasy value outside of the third-down role.

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee) had a minor injury scare at one point in practice Wednesday, June 8, during minicamp. The veteran was attended to by the training staff, focusing on his left knee. After a brief absence he was able to return to drills and team work. Bennett worked with FB James Develin and fellow TEs A.J. Derby and Michael Williams on blocking drills.
Fantasy Tip: Bennett could still be a valuable fantasy option in the New England offense despite the presence of Rob Gronkowski, as you only need to go back to the days of Aaron Hernandez and know there is plenty of ball to go around. Still, he should be treated more as a TE2 or flex option at this point.

Fri, 28 Jun 2013 19:32:19 -0700
New England Patriots TEs James Develin and Brandon Ford are likely to get more attention during training camp following the release of TE Aaron Hernandez, but they still have several veterans ahead of them on the depth chart even if TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is not ready for the start of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Develin appears to be directly competing with veteran Michael Hoomanawanui for a swing role, or sort of a hybrid tight end/fullback position. Ford lined up in the slot during college, and can also be used as a wide receiver. Their versatility gives them a chance at a roster spot, but their fantasy value remains negligible for now.
