    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell was kept on the sideline throughout spring practices by design. According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, the Patriots are subscribing to a 'less is more' approach with the second-year wideout and doing what they can to help sustain him for the long haul given his extensive history with knee injuries.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell was a pleasant surprise as a fourth-round rookie in 2016, but he figures to be reduced to more of a specialty role as a sophomore after New England added Brandin Cooks to a receiver corps that already boasts Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan. As such, Mitchell will have a hard time being fantasy-relevant this season barring a rash of injuries in front of him on the depth chart.

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is active for the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell is a risky DFS play this week, but with such a small player pool, consider him a flex.

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) has been declared out for the Divisional round playoff game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. WRs Michael Floyd and Danny Amendola could see increased snaps in his absence and are worthy of consideration as WR4 options in postseason fantasy leagues.

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) has been downgraded to out and won't play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: With Mitchell sidelined, it is a lot easier to roll the dice on Chris Hogan as a high-upside WR3.

    New England Patriots rookie WR Malcolm Mitchell posted four receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell has rolled up four touchdowns over the past four games after failing to find the end zone in his first nine outings. The rookie has emerged as a solid WR3 in all PPR fantasy formats.

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell has been catching everything in practice and is learning how to beat press coverage, according to CB Eric Rowe.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell has nine catches and three scores in the last two games, and he should be scooped up off waivers where available in case his role in the offense continues to grow.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 10:55pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell posted five receptions for 42 yards with two touchdowns on seven targets in the Week 12 game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell is gaining the trust of Tom Brady and is worth a look if he is still available off the waiver wire. He can be trusted as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues in Week 13 against the Rams.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 10:21pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell posted four receptions for 98 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He finished with five targets.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell has been seeing increased work over the past couple of games, and Sunday's performance was a positive sign. He is worth scooping up as a speculative fantasy pick going forward in deeper leagues if you need receiver help.

  • Posted: 8/17/2016 9:48pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell posted four grabs for 55 yards on 15 snaps in the preseason opener, and he is considered a leading candidate for the 'X' receiver role.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell might be a fantasy sleeper if he works into a meaningful role in the X. He is definitely worth a look as a late-round flyer in standard fantasy leagues, as he could be quite the steal.

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (elbow) returned to practice in full pads Monday, Aug. 15.

    Huddle Up: Good sign for the fourth-round pick who dislocated his elbow in the Pats' preseason opener last week. Mitchell, though, is sporting is sizable brace, and it would be a surprise if he's able to see any more action this preseason.

  • Posted: 8/14/2016 10:22pm ET

    Updating previous reports, an MRI exam taken on New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell's dislocated left elbow came out clean, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It's been a rough August so far for the Pats, but at least there's good initial news on the fourth-round rookie's elbow. In the meantime, though, it's still a setback for Mitchell as he had a strong preseason debut with four catches for 55 yards on only 15 snaps and looked to be challenging for a spot in the team's WR rotation.

  • Posted: 8/12/2016 8:43am ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (elbow) has been diagnosed with a dislocated left elbow, and he could return in four weeks, a source said Thursday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: The four-week timeline has to be considered good news given how gruesome the injury looked. The setback is going to make it hard for him to have an impact early in the year, but he is worth keeping an eye on.

  • Posted: 8/11/2016 9:54pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (arm) exited a preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Aug. 11, after injuring his left arm.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell suffered what looked like a pretty serious elbow injury. Before leaving with the injury, Mitchell caught four passes for 55 yards. He's having a strong camp and is in the running to be the Patriots No. 3 receiver. If Mitchell is out for an extended period of time, Aaron Dobson, Chris Harper and Nate Washington are next in line.
