Patriots | Jonas Gray not used much in Week 13

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 11:28:41 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray was on the field for only two offensive snaps during the team's Week 13 game.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like LeGarrette Blount has moved above Gray on the depth chart as the team's power running back. Owners in shallow leagues can consider dropping Gray because it does not look like he will receive more playing time in the near future.

Patriots | Jonas Gray finally checks in

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 15:46:16 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray checked in for his first carry on the final offensive play of the third quarter in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Gray went for 199 rushing yards and four touchdowns two weeks ago against the Indianapolis Colts, but he overslept and was late to team meetings last week and was active, but held out of the game. FantasyScore owners will want to see how the produced in the fourth quarter, because he could still be useful down the stretch based on his production from two weeks ago.

Patriots | Jonas Gray will see time in Week 13

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 09:32:36 -0800

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray will receive playing time in Week 13, because the Patriots want to establish a power-running game, according to a source. Gray did not receive any playing time in Week 12 after he was late for a practice.

Fantasy Tip: Gray probably will share carries with LeGarrette Blount during the game, so he will not have the same value he did a few weeks ago. He only costs $3,400 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to look for other options to use.

Patriots | Pats could rely on running game

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 07:21:59 -0800

New England Patriots RBs LeGarrette Blount and Jonas Gray could run the ball a lot in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers, which ranks 30th in the league against the run.

Fantasy Tip: Blount ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) could be the one they turn to, or they could go back to Jonas Gray ($3,400; 6.8%) after his benching. Blount figures to have the upper hand considering how much he came through for the team last week. This was also the period where he had his three best games last season. Blount makes for a good flex option with some uncertainty.

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.

Patriots | Jonas Gray playing tonight

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 16:07:13 -0700

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray will be active tonight and is currently listed ahead of James White on the team's depth chart. White is inactive for the contest.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly how the New England running backs will be utilized with Stevan Ridley out for the year, but Shane Vereen and Brandon Bolden figure to see most of the work out of the backfield tonight.

Patriots | Brandon Bolden to be more involved?

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 15:06:20 -0700

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden was the fill-in for RB Stevan Ridley (knee) in Week 6 as the "big back." Bolden has been a core special teams player this year, and something will have to give if he's to start being more of a factor at running back with Ridley out for the year. RB Jonas Gray could be promoted from the practice squad.

Fantasy Tip: Shane Vereen and James Wright will immediately be thrust into heavier workloads with Ridley out, but Bolden could be the surprise back in short-yardage and goal-line situations, which would give him some flex appeal in fantasy leagues. Make sure to consider adding Bolden off the waiver wire this week if you own Ridley or need help at running back.

Patriots | Brandon Bolden may be on the bubble

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 12:28:01 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White may put RB Brandon Bolden on the bubble for a roster spot, according to a source. RB Roy Finch and TE Justin Jones could also make the team as undrafted rookies, while either RBs Stephen Houston or Jonas Gray could make the team in RB LeGarrette Blount's previous role.

Fantasy Tip: None of these guys are fantasy relevant yet. We'll see if they actually make the final roster before gauging their fantasy value.

Dolphins | Two competing for No. 3 RB job

Sat, 10 Aug 2013 08:48:07 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Mike Gillislee is the leading candidate for the No. 3 running back job but is being pushed by RB Jonas Gray for the job. Gillislee rushed for 37 yards on 12 carries in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, while Gray rushed for 32 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries. Gray is showing he could be a valuable short-yardage and goal line running back.

Dolphins | Jonas Gray trying to state case

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 17:24:51 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Jonas Gray (knee) spent last season on the team's Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list while recovering from a serious knee injury in college. The team kept him around, and now he is getting his chance to shine. He had seven carries for 41 yards in the team's first preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Gray likely will need a long-term injury to Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas or Mike Gillislee to crack the roster, as the team is pretty well stocked at running back. However, he could be auditioning for a roster spot on another club, too.

Dolphins | Two to battle for No. 3 RB job

Sun, 02 Jun 2013 19:16:59 -0700

Miami Dolphins RBs Mike Gillislee and Jonas Gray (knee) appear set to do battle for the No. 3 running back job behind RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. "We feel very good about (Gray) coming off the knee. Then (rookie) Mike Gillislee. There's youth at the position," general manager Jeff Ireland said. "There's special teams value there. We feel very good about their skill set. Obviously, we need to see them play a little more and solidify the position."

Dolphins | Lamar Miller in lead for lead back role

Thu, 30 May 2013 11:58:04 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller has a leg up on the competition to start at running back in 2013 although Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin considers the competition wide open, and Daniel Thomas, Mike Gillislee, Jonas Gray and Marcus Thigpen also are all competing for the starting job.

Fantasy Tip: This is a battle that will likely play out through training camp and preseason games. Keep an eye on how the running backs are used in training camp and preseason. Also, Joe Philbin used a running back by committee approach in 2012, which hurt the value of all involved.
