Patriots | Jacoby Brissett questionable

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 15:47:29 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Brissett could be the starting quarterback in Week 4 if Jimmy Garoppolo is not able to play. He probably will not throw many passes if he plays and will not be a strong fantasy option for owners.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo listed as questionable

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 15:43:39 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list before the game, but Garoppolo likely will start if he is active for the game. He probably will be limited if he plays in Week 4 and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski's status in question

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 15:36:37 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was not targeted in Week 3 but should be more involved in the passing game this week. He will be a risky option for owners because of his injury but should be a starting candidate in all fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Limited practice for Jacoby Brissett

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 15:58:15 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if either Brissett or Garoppolo will be able to take the field this weekend, but neither warrants starter consideration, especially not against a Buffalo Bills pass defense that has only allowed two passing touchdowns this year.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo also limited

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 15:54:56 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo may be a game-time decision if he continues his limited practice participation for the remainder of the week. He played well before the injury, but it wasn't quite QB1 material. If he does start he should still be benched facing a better than average Buffalo Bills pass defense.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited Thursday

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 15:48:18 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was extremely limited in his first game of the season last week, but he should see an uptick in action this week after another week of rest and practice. His ceiling is much lower with either Jimmy Garoppolo or Jacoby Brissett at quarterback, but Gronk should still be started despite a goose egg last week.

Patriots | No setbacks for Rob Gronkowski

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 18:54:49 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) told reporters that he has "no setbacks" in his debut in Week 3 against the Houston Texans. He said he was sore, but he felt fine. "I felt good," he said Wednesday, Sept. 28. And he said he always feels sore after playing a game, "whether you play 10 plays or you play 70." He added the team is being careful with the injury, and hamstrings in particular can be tricky so you cannot "hop right in, and go 100 percent."

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has had a few extra days since last Thursday's game for treatment and to mend, so fantasy owners can expect a much bigger impact in Week 4. He has shredded Buffalo in the past, but there is uncertainty at the quarterback position in Foxboro, so Gronk might not start to hit his stride until Week 5 when Tom Brady is due back from suspension.

Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited in practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:37:28 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski went without a catch and received just one target in his 2016 debut last week, which burnt anyone eager to receive a return on their early-round investment. However, New England was in control of the game throughout, and there was little need to press Gronkowski into action. Tom Brady returns from suspension in Week 5, and Gronkowski projects to return to being an elite fantasy option then. This week, he is best viewed as a high-risk, high-reward commodity given the unknown surrounding his health and the quarterback situation.

Patriots | Jacoby Brissett limited in practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:30:43 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Brissett performed admirably for a third-string quarterback in Week 2 and 3. He did most of his fantasy damage with his legs and finished with 48 rushing yards and a score against the Houston Texans last week. With Tom Brady set to return from suspension in Week 5, Brissett isn't a viable long-term fantasy option, and especially since he isn't a lock to play this week. If Brissett does receive the start against Buffalo Sunday, Oct. 2, he checks out as a low-end QB2.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo limited at practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:24:55 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo was exceptional before suffering a shoulder injury in Week 2, and his status for Week 4 remains unknown. Tom Brady is eligible to return from suspension in Week 5, so Garoppolo's eyeing a one-week window to help fantasy players. However, given the uncertainty of his health, he's an ill-advised option to count on.

Patriots | Dont'a Hightower making progress

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:11:49 -0700

New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) is making progress in his recovery from a knee injury but his status for Week 4 is uncertain at this point, according to a source. He has been participating in practice since last week.

Patriots | Jacoby Brissett on the field

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:08:05 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) was throwing passes during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and did not appear to be bothered by his thumb injury.

Fantasy Tip: Brissett's status for Week 4 is uncertain at this point, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He would receive limited pass attempts if he plays this week and would not be the best option for owners.
