Patriots | Martellus Bennett at practice

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 10:53:25 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been held to only 40 yards combined in the last three games and has gone seven games without a touchdown. He will continue to be the team's No. 1 tight end with Rob Gronkowski out, but owners may want to consider using other options and keeping Bennett on the bench.

Patriots | Tom Brady faces tough test

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 15:56:25 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is facing the NFL's No. 1 ranked defense in the Baltimore Ravens this week. He has fared well against elite defenses in his career, however, amassing a 6-0 record with 12 touchdowns and just three interceptions in home games versus No. 1 defenses.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is a matchup-proof quarterback as has been evidenced throughout his career. He can spread the ball around to anyone and doesn't need Rob Gronkowski in order to be an elite fantasy quarterback. Start him as you normally would despite the difficult matchup.

Patriots | Danny Amendola to miss time

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 08:19:19 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 13, and the team's plan is to have him ready for the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: This will give Chris Hogan a boost in the offense with Gronk and Amendola out. Hogan had four catches for 23 yards and a touchdown and should be picked up if he was dumped in what has been a quiet season.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett almost invisible

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:17:23 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett managed just two catches for four yards on four targets in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners were expecting a lot more for Bennett, especially with Rob Gronkowski done for the season. Bennett has been the ultimate boom or bust fantasy play lately, posting big stats or very little production at all.

Patriots | Chris Hogan visits end zone

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:16:51 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan posted four receptions for 23 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has a total of four catches in three of his past four outings, and he has at least 70 or more receiving yards in two of the games. However, his production has been rather erratic and he is only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Patriots | Malcolm Mitchell targeted 10 times

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:16:20 -0800

New England Patriots rookie WR Malcolm Mitchell posted eight grabs for 82 yards in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Tip: Mitchell has rolled up 17 receptions for 222 yards and three scores over the past three outings, emerging as a viable WR3 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Patriots | Julian Edelman cracks century mark

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:15:40 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) pulled down eight receptions for 101 yards in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted a game-high 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman was on the injury report again due to his foot injury, but he shined in this game as the top receiving option. He remains a solid low-end WR2 in all PPR formats and a WR3 in all other leagues in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount finds end zone again

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:15:08 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was not targeted in the pass game.

Fantasy Tip: Blount snapped a mini-scoring skid, as he hadn't found the end zone in either of his past two games. It was the first time this season he had back-to-back games without a visit to the end zone. He remains a must-start fantasy option in Week 14 despite facing the Baltimore Ravens and their lockdown rushing defense.

Patriots | Tom Brady earns 201st victory

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:14:37 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 33 of his 46 pass attempts for 269 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. With the win, he became the winningest quarterback in NFL history with 201 victories. "It's always been about winning, and I've been very fortunate to be on a lot of great teams," Brady said. "I'm really grateful."

Fantasy Tip: Brady had a solid completion percentage, but his yardage and mere one score left fantasy owners wonting for more. The loss of Rob Gronkowski for the season is certainly not good news for Brady and his fantasy owners.

Patriots | Danny Amendola injured

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 12:28:34 -0800

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the second half Sunday, Dec. 4, against the Los Angeles Rams. He is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola owners may want to hold their breath a bit. This is the second big injury of the week behind Rob Gronkowski, but Amendola may be week-to-week. He has 20 catches, 213 yards and four touchdowns to date in 2016. If you are looking for Amendola insurance, WRs Chris Hogan or Malcolm Mitchell may see more touches if Amendola can't go.

Patriots | Chris Hogan will play in Week 13

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 08:14:44 -0800

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) is active for Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been able to play through this injury for a while, so fantasy owners should have no reservations about using him as a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.
