• Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/20/17 3:03pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Hogan recorded only one catch and 19 yards last week but should see more targets this week. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues as long as he is active.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB
    Posted 10/20/17 2:57pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead likely will be back in uniform after missing several games because of his injury. He will be sharing work with Mike Gillislee, James White and Dion Lewis if they are all active. Owners probably should look for other options to use this week since Burkhead's role is uncertain.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/20/17 6:43pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady said Friday, Oct. 20, that he doesn't feel his accuracy is where it needs to be, especially in the red zone where the Patriots have scored 14 touchdowns in 25 trips.

    Huddle Up: For someone who is disappointed in his accuracy, Brady continues to put up QB1 numbers on a weekly basis, and he is a must-start option against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 10/20/17 7:55pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks said he believes he will be able to showcase his explosiveness more often as the season goes on. 'At the end of the day, I just want to stick to the process, perfect my craft and pay attention to the little details,' Cooks said. 'And I feel like it's going to come.'

    Huddle Up: Cooks has just two touchdowns this year, but he has still been a big part of the passing game, delivering at least 85 yards in four of the six games. He is locked in as a WR2 heading into a Week 7 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/19/17 2:28pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (ribs) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Hogan is coming off what was easily the worst game of his season so far. He has been a touchdown machine, though, and the forecast calls for plenty of touchdowns Sunday night versus the Atlanta Falcons. Assuming Hogan is good to go, he's a solid WR2 play in a potential scorcher.

  • Dion Lewis - RB
    Posted 10/19/17 7:23pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has rushed 18 times for 105 yards in the last two games after rushing a combined 12 times for 46 yards in the first four games.

    Huddle Up: While the trend is encouraging, the Patriots are notoriously fickle with how they distribute carries. Lewis is a desperation flex play against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/18/17 2:31pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Hogan is coming off his worst outing of the season and dealing with a rib injury on top of it. There's still plenty of time between now and Sunday night, though, and he and the Patriots are due for a high-scoring affair with the Atlanta Falcons. Assuming Hogan's health isn't an issue, he'll be in low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 territory.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/15/17 1:25pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady went 20-for-38 for 257 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Brady has thrown at least two touchdowns in four of his last five games but was held to under 300 yards for the first time in five games. He continues to be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and is a must-start option next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • James White - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 1:38pm ET

    New England Patriots RB James White rushed for 23 yards on three carries against the New York Jets in Week 6. He also caught four passes for 22 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: White has been involved in the running and passing game in every game this season and should remain in that role moving forward. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Mike Gillislee - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 1:34pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee rushed for 44 yards on 10 carries against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee has received at least 10 carries in all six games this season but has gone four games without a touchdown. He will continue to have a solid role in the running game and can be a flex option in most standard leagues.

  • Dion Lewis - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 1:28pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed for 52 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Lewis received a season-high 11 carries during the game and rushed for his second touchdown in the last three games. His role changes each week, but Lewis can be considered a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 1:54pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught one pass for 19 yards against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Hogan saw his four-game touchdown streak snapped this week and was not a big factor in the game. He probably will see more targets next week against the Atlanta Falcons and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • Danny Amendola - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 1:49pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola caught three passes for 40 yards against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Amendola has been a solid target for the Patriots this season but posted a season low in yards this week. He will continue to see a solid amount of targets and can be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/15/17 1:46pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught six passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has recorded at least 80 yards in each of the last four games and has four touchdowns during that span. He is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start fantasy option as long as he is healthy.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 1:41pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught six passes for 93 yards against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has been targeted at least six times in five games this season and has posted at least 85 yards in three of the last four games. He can be considered at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB
    Posted 10/14/17 12:54pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) has been ruled out of the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: James White and Dion Lewis should continue to have solid roles on offense with Burkhead sidelined. White can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues because of his role in the passing game, while Lewis can be a flex option in deeper standard leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/13/17 1:53pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Brady continues to be one of the top quarterbacks in NFL and should be a starting fantasy quarterback no matter the opponent.

  • Rex Burkhead - RB
    Posted 10/13/17 1:52pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Burkhead is able to play against the New York Jets. Burkhead may be limited if he plays because of his injured ribs. Owners probably should consider other options because of Burkhead's uncertain status.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/13/17 1:57pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski missed the last game but should receive his normal workload against the New York Jets. He has posted at least 80 yards in each of the last three games and should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/13/17 5:02pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) said he will be able to play against the New York Jets in Week 6 after missing Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has had over a week to recover from his thigh injury and should receive his normal workload. He should be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues when he is healthy.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/12/17 1:51pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) put in a limited practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Gronk has had two weeks to recover from his thigh ailment. As long as there aren't any setbacks over the next couple days then Gronk is an automatic start.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/12/17 1:48pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Brady has already said he'll play on Sunday; it's just a matter of how healthy he'll be. Given the fact that the injury is to his non-throwing shoulder, don't overthink things. Start Brady per usual.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/11/17 9:43am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Brady assured reporters Tuesday he would play through the AC sprain in his non-throwing shoulder and this news should ease whatever concerns owners may have had about that. He has a very favorable matchup in Week 6 versus the New York Jets and should return high-end QB1 production.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/11/17 10:20am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) suffered a thigh contusion as a result of a leg whip during the team's Week 4 loss to the Carolina Panthers, resulting in his inability to play on a short week in Week 5. However, 'all signs' point toward Gronkowski playing in Week 6 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: It appears safe to get Gronkowski back into fantasy lineups this week. As per usual, he is a great bet to deliver elite TE1 production when he is on the field.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/11/17 2:46pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Despite his absence from practice, all indications are that he'll be ready to play in Sunday's road game against the Jets. New York has allowed just 20 receptions for 204 yards and two touchdowns to opposing tight ends so far, ranking in the Top 10 in the league. However, this is Gronk, and as long as he is on the field he is an elite-level fantasy option.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/11/17 2:37pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday, Oct. 11, due to the injury to his non-throwing shoulder.

    Huddle Up: Brady is battling an AC sprain in his left non-throwing shoulder. It doesn't sound like an injury that will keep him from participating in Week 6 on the road against the Jets, a team ranking 12th in the NFL in pass defense.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/11/17 4:56pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (shoulder) said he will be able to play in Week 6 even though he is dealing with a shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Brady probably will be limited during practice this week but does not appear to be in danger of missing Week 6. He has thrown for at least 300 yards in each of the last four games and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/10/17 10:18am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (rest) was not present at the start of practice Tuesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Brady assured reporters he'll be ready to go in Week 6, suggesting his absence from practice was more about taking advantage of the extra few days he has at his disposal to fully recover from some of the hits he took Thursday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While Brady has been getting hit much more often this year than he did in 2016, he is still mostly clicking on all cylinders. He should be an elite QB1 play again in Week 6 versus the New York Jets.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/10/17 10:13am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (thigh) took part in practice Tuesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was sidelined in Week 5 by a thigh issue he suffered in practice, but this suggests the injury was as minor as was being reported. Barring a similar late-week setback, Gronkowski will be an elite TE1 play yet again versus the New York Jets in Week 6.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/10/17 12:40pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (shoulder) suffered a non-throwing shoulder injury in Week 4 and re-aggravated the injury last week.

    Huddle Up: The good news is that the injury is to his left shoulder. We'll need to see how much Brady practices this week, but it's hard to believe he'd miss a game because of his non-throwing shoulder, especially when he's played before when banged up. Keep him in your starting lineup(s).
