Patriots | New England likely to add at RB

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 21:06:41 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White played 57 of the 83 offensive snaps in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24, and RB Brandon Bolden played 16. RB Steven Jackson rounded things out with 11 snaps. The team will also get RB Dion Lewis (knee) back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2016, while RB LeGarrette Blount is an impending free agent. The team might face an offseason similar to 2011 when the selected a pair of backs in the NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has the potential to be the top running back with this current group, with White and Bolden as solid backups. However, look for a rookie, and possibly a veteran running back, to be added in the offseason to provide competition.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount staying with Patriots?

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:50:08 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount could be on his way out of New England as he enters free agency this offseason. RB Dion Lewis (knee) will return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and RB James White filled in nicely for Lewis. The Patriots also have another big back on their roster in RB Steven Jackson, putting Blount's future with New England in limbo.

Fantasy Tip: Gone are the days of Blount rushing for hundreds of yards and multiple touchdowns. The Patriots do need a ground-and-pound type of running back, but Blount may not be the answer for the future. This situation will play out over the course of the next few months, but Blount may be heading for fantasy irrelevancy.

Patriots | Steven Jackson to play key role?

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 20:06:50 -0800

New England Patriots RB Steven Jackson ran six times for a team-high 16 yards in last week's win over the Kansas City Chiefs, and now he'll face the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Many FantasyScore players probably forgot about ol' SJ39 ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), but he could be a surprise option this weekend. The Patriots need a veteran running back, and he certainly fits the bill. Denver allowed just 83.6 yards per game on the ground in the regular season, but they were dinged for 10 rushing scores and 81 first downs via the run. Jackson could easily exceed his salary expectations in this one.

Patriots | Steven Jackson leads backfield

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 16:23:20 -0800

New England Patriots RB Steven Jackson had 14 carries for 35 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 20 yards in a 20-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson appears to be the team's between-the-tackles back heading into the playoffs, and while he may not have much tread left on his tires, he will have some value at FantasyScore as long as he is receiving touches near the goal line.

Patriots | Steven Jackson likely to be active

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 08:06:23 -0800

New England Patriots RB Steven Jackson is expected to be active for Week 16's game against the New York Jets, according to a source. He could have a key role in the offense, filling a role similar to the one which had been by occupied by LeGarrette Blount (hip) earlier in the season.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Jackson was just signed a few days ago, it shouldn't take him long to learn the New England offense, considering that offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels worked with him in St. Louis for one year. He is not available in FantasyScore this week but he could be worth a flier as a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.

Patriots | New England RBs set for a small workload?

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 05:15:59 -0800

The New England Patriots ran the ball just nine times during their Week 7 game against the New York Jets, and a similar game plan is likely for their Week 16 meeting, in the opinion of WEEI.com's Christopher Price. RBs James White, Brandon Bolden, Joey Iosefa and Steven Jackson project to have a tough task this week, as New England has averaged 18 carries for just 62 yards over the past five games against the Jets.

Fantasy Tip: For the season, New York owns the second best run defense in yards per game. So with the New England backfield loaded with options, it will be difficult to trust anyone outside of White ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in PPR formats, including at FantasyScore. Jackson, Bolden ($3,400, 6.8%) and Iosefa ($2,000, 4.0%) are nothing more than fliers in all formats because of their uncertain workload and difficult matchup.

Patriots | Steven Jackson has familiarity with OC

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 05:09:08 -0800

New England Patriots RB Steven Jackson played under offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in 2011 when McDaniels was the offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams, and head coach Bill Belichick hinted the experience would help Jackson learn the offense as fast as possible.

Fantasy Tip: The New England backfield was already quite crowded, and Jackson hasn't suited up for a game all season. Additionally, the Pats only ran the ball nine times in the Week 7 game against the New York Jets. Jackson has potential as a FantasyScore flier during the playoffs, but it is best to take a wait-and-see approach in seasonal leagues.

Patriots | Steven Jackson joining Patriots

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 08:06:35 -0800

Free-agent RB Steven Jackson (Falcons) will sign a one-year deal with the New England Patriots Monday, Dec. 21, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The move is good for headlines, but S-Jack looked like a shell of himself his last two seasons in Atlanta. He played one year with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in St. Louis, but it's unlikely he'll play a big enough role to be a fantasy factor the next two weeks. He could be a daily option in the playoffs.
