Patriots | Donald Brown embracing opportunity

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:13:08 -0700

New England Patriots RB Donald Brown led all running backs with 19 receptions in Patriots minicamp, and he is taking advantage of the opportunity to contribute in any way possible. His most likely path to a role is as the top backup to RB LeGarrette Blount. Brown is not considered a lock to make the team, according to Mark Daniels, of the Providence Journal. New England would carry a $300,000 salary cap charge if Brown is released.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran runner is known as a one-dimensional back and doesn't have the most natural hands, but injuries could provide him an opportunity. He has no fantasy value heading into draft season.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett fine in backup role

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 15:26:13 -0700

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett said he doesn't mind playing second fiddle to TE Rob Gronkowski this year. "I really don't mind being Robin, you know? So right now it's just working every day and just trying to get better. He's an excellent player, and I'm gonna be able to get a lot of single coverages with him," Bennett said. He has impressed in organized team activities this offseason as a newcomer with his size and athleticism.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett may be listed as the No. 2 tight end on the Pats' depth chart this year, but that doesn't mean he won't make a huge fantasy impact in his first season in New England. Expect the Patriots to use plenty of two-tight end sets. Bennett has been a dynamic pass-catching tight end the last few years with the Bears and Giants, and his value should remain high again in 2016. Consider him more of a low-end TE1 on draft day.

Patriots | No brace for Dion Lewis

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 11:51:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) practiced Monday, June 13, without a brace on his left knee. Lewis said he feels better every day but that he still has a long way to go in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis was a PPR monster before suffering the injury last year. If he can return to full health then he'll be worth a look as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis back at practice

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 09:34:45 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is back at practice for the first time Monday, June 13. Lewis is recovering from November surgery to fix a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis will likely be overvalued in drafts this fall because he's essentially New England's No. 1 running back. But keep in mind he probably won't be 100% by the time Week 1 kicks off, and he had just 234 rushing yards on 49 carries for two touchdowns in his first season with the Pats. Lewis is surely more valuable in PPR formats (36 catches for 388 yards), but be careful not to reach for him given his injury and the uncertainty that allows accompanies a New England backfield.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski suits up

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 08:13:56 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) is on the field for the organized team activities Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: The team has been cautious with Gronk this offseason due to an undisclosed ailment. It's not something that should affect the top tight end target in fantasy.

Patriots | Versatility helping Keshawn Martin

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 17:44:11 -0700

New England Patriots WR Keshawn Martin has lined up at all three receiver positions during minicamp, and he said having a full offseason in New England's program is going to help him in 2016.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo works with starters

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 17:15:50 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo split first-team reps QB Tom Brady during a three-day minicamp, and WR Nate Washington said that Garoppolo understands the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo could be forced into action with Brady facing a four-game suspension. His long-term value is limited, but he could be a potential DFS sleeper if Brady does miss games.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski should be ready for camp

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 10:17:16 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) said he will be ready for training camp despite missing minicamp last week. Gronkowski said he and the coaching staff are on the same page and everything is going smoothly.

Fantasy Tip: Gronk's injury and status are vague, but it doesn't seem to be a serious situation. He should still be the top tight end selected in fantasy drafts, either late in the first round or early in the second round.

Patriots | Nate Washington still a deep threat

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 19:17:37 -0700

New England Patriots WR Nate Washington still has the speed to stretch the field, and he could fill New England's need for an outside deep threat.

Fantasy Tip: Washington may connect on a big play from time to time, but he is unlikely to have the consistent production needed to be a worthwhile fantasy option.
