Patriots | Jonas Gray learns tough lesson

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 15:45:58 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray did not play in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions after he did not report to the team's facility Friday, Nov. 21. He missed practice because he overslept. After the game, head coach Bill Belichick said only: "We do what we think is best. That's what we did today."

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners who took a chance on Gray this week after his 199-yard, four-touchdown performance last week were obviously burned badly.

Patriots | Jonas Gray to split carries

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 06:13:56 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray will play Sunday, Nov. 23, after being late to practice Friday, Nov. 21. He'll split carries with RB LeGarrette Blount in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Gray ($6,500; 13.0% of your cap) is quite pricey to be on the wrong side of Bill Belichick's patience. He's a risky RB2 on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Jonas Gray probable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:04:36 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray (non-injury) is listed as probable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Gray's role for Week 12 is uncertain since he missed practice Friday, Nov. 21, for showing up late. There is a chance LeGarrette Blount may receive some of Gray's carries during the game. Gray costs $6,500 on FantasyScore and may not be a great option this week.

Patriots | Jonas Gray was late for practice

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:06:41 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray did not participate in practice because he arrived at the facility late.

Fantasy Tip: Gray is not a great FantasyScore play in Week 12, especially with a FantasyScore price of $6,500 (13.0% of cap). With Gray being late for practice, there is a chance that LeGarrette Blount could get more work this week. Blount should also be avoided in FantasyScore as the matchup against Detroit is not a great one because the Lions are one of the better teams at stopping the run.

Patriots | Jonas Gray missing from practice

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 10:13:06 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray (undisclosed) was a no-show at practice Friday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Tip: We don't know the reason for Gray's absence, so stay tuned and check back for updates. If Gray is forced to miss the game against the Detroit Lions, LeGarrette Blount ($3,100) could step into a significant role. However, he wouldn't be a very wise purchase, as the Lions are one of the best squads at stopping the run this year.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount won't unseat Jonas Gray

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 07:23:12 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount was not signed by the team to replace RB Jonas Gray as the between-the-tackles runner. Blount's presence gives the team another tough inside runner in the potentially poor-weather weeks ahead.

Fantasy Tip: Gray ($6,500; 13.0% of your cap) will likely take a hit once Blount ($3,100; 6.2%) gets re-acclimated to the offense. Gray was already a risky option at his elevated price on FantasyScore because the Patriots' offense is so fickle from week to week. However, he remains the one to target in fantasy.

Patriots | Jonas Gray facing tough opponent

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 13:46:36 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray had a huge performance in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts, but ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss expects a difference offensive approach in the backfield against the Detroit Lions, who are ranked No. 1 in the league against the run.

Fantasy Tip: Gray's price has jumped after his big Week 11 performance to $6,500 at FantasyScore. Against the Lions, if the Pats indeed shift their game plan, it would seem Gray would have a tough time turning a profit. Shane Vereen ($6,400) is probably the smarter play as the pass-catching back out of the backfield.

Patriots | Jonas Gray sets franchise record

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 10:17:27 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray rushed for a career-high 199 yards and scored a franchise-record four touchdowns in Week 11. Gray was on the field for 53 snaps and carried the ball 38 times.

Fantasy Tip: Gray probably will not have another game like this the rest of the season, but he could receive most of the carries moving forward with Shane Vereen being more of a pass catcher. Owners should look to add Gray if he is available in their leagues, but they should not expect big games each week. He will be facing a tough Detroit Lions defense in Week 12 but probably should still be a starting option.

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 | Jonas Gray barely used

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 09:53:20 -0700

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray was the team's "inside" runner behind RB Shane Vereen in Week 7 against the New York Jets Thursday, Oct. 16, but Gray only had three carries on the night.

Fantasy Tip: It was even more of a surprise that Brandon Bolden had just one catch and no carries in the game. It just goes to show that predicting who the No. 2 back will be behind Vereen on a weekly basis will likely be a crapshoot.
