Chris Hogan

New England Patriots

Primed for Monday Return


Hogan has been out the past four weeks and has basically caused me a playoff berth in one of my dynasty leagues. If you’re still in it I’d get him into the line-up. With Gronk out Hogan should see a solid number of targets.

Rex Burkhead

New England Patriots

The Belichick Shuffle


Rex Burkhead has scored a touchdown once every 13.2 touches. Alvin Kamara has scored a touchdown once every 13.3 touches.

Fantasy Goo: Burkhead has seen as many touches as Lewis over the past two weeks and is getting goal-line carries, against Miami this week I’ll consider them both RB2’s.

Chris Hogan

New England Patriots

Gronkowski in a Great Spot for Week 13


Chris Hogan did not practice Thursday. The Pats WR, targeted heavily around the goal line, has not played since Week #8.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots pass catcher that is targeted around the goal line the most is Gronk. Considering the Pats have the hihgest implied score this week(32, allow me to rephrase... thirty-freakin-two), and the opposing dolphins allows the highest red zone efficiency to the opposition. Gronk should smash!

Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Sneaky Start


The Patriots newly acquired TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable to play Sunday in Denver. WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out.

Amendola is questionable, but expected to play. At $5200 on DK there are better options, but if you’re in a pinch at the flex in a PPR league you could do much worse.

Dion Lewis

New England Patriots

Waiver Wire Target


Dion played on 26 snaps and got the ball in his hand 14 times. He’s the back to own in New England until he fumbles or gets hurt, then he won’t be. Just ask Mike Gillislee.

Rex Burkhead

RB Community in NE

Brady Ready to Bruise the Jets... Again

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

James White

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Rob Gronkowski

New England Patriots

Gronk Out


Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

Fantasy Goo: There should be plenty of TE’s on the waiver wire this week, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Evan Engram, Cameron Brate, may be already owned at this point, but Tyler Kroft or Dwayne Allen should still be out there.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

The Worst Slot Corners are on the Thursday Night Stage


Danny Amendola and Adam Humphries, the two starting slot receivers in the Thursday night matchup, will face the worst two starting slot corners in the league according to PFF. Robert McClain will be on Amendola. He grades out as the worst starting slot corner at 34.1. Right behind him, is Eric Rowe, who will be on Humphries. Rowe earns a 34.4 from PFF. If you are playing the full slate on DFS, these guys could allow you to pay up at other spots.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Waiver Wire Target


When Amendola is healthy he makes plays, and that was the case this week. He caught six passes for 42 yards with a score. Brady has faith in Amendola, and he is only receiver that is running the underneath routes in the offense.

Danny Amendola

Waiver Wire Target


Amendola was back, but he did not make a major impact this week with three receptions for 48 yards. He should be owned in most leagues, especially PPR leagues, as he is going to see a lot of targets when healthy.

Kenny Britt

New England Patriots

Jackson Says Britt's Starting Job In Question


Hue Jackson was very disappointed in Britt week 1 and his starting job is up for grabs. Says Johnson: "Let's see where we go this week"

Fantasy Goo: We would expect that the analytical Browns front office would move Kenny Britt if he is not a starter due to his $5.6 million cap hit. But a release isn't out of the picture as they already ate Brock Osweiler's massive contract. Regardless Corey Coleman is the clear WR to own in Cleveland.

Mitchell To IR


Malcolm Mitchell, who I liked as a potential surpise fantasy option in the NE pass attack will be ruled out for at least 8 weeks on the IR designated to return.

Fantasy Goo: Although I don't believe this has any impact on tonight's game or the Pat's other pass catchers who you wouldn't otherwise play in fantasy, it does open the door for the Amendola's and Dorsett's to see expanded roles.

Rex Burkhead

New England Patriots

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gronk should and will be a huge part of the Patriots offense this season. The loss of Julian Edelman should mean more work for Gronk who could be in line for his biggest season since 2011. He faces the Chiefs in Week 1, and with Brady trying to find timing with Brandin Cooks, Gronk should see extra looks in this matchup.

Considering the Pats have the hihgest implied score this week(32, allow me to rephrase... thirty-freakin-two), and the opposing dolphins allows the highest red zone efficiency to the opposition.

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Danny Amendola

Sneaky Start


The Patriots newly acquired TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable to play Sunday in Denver. WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

James White

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Sneaky Start


The Patriots newly acquired TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable to play Sunday in Denver. WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out.

Amendola is questionable, but expected to play. At $5200 on DK there are better options, but if you’re in a pinch at the flex in a PPR league you could do much worse.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Sneaky Start


The Patriots newly acquired TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable to play Sunday in Denver. WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out.

Amendola is questionable, but expected to play. At $5200 on DK there are better options, but if you’re in a pinch at the flex in a PPR league you could do much worse.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

James White

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Sneaky Start


The Patriots newly acquired TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable to play Sunday in Denver. WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out.

Amendola is questionable, but expected to play. At $5200 on DK there are better options, but if you’re in a pinch at the flex in a PPR league you could do much worse.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

James White

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Gronk Out


Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Sneaky Start


The Patriots newly acquired TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable to play Sunday in Denver. WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out.

Amendola is questionable, but expected to play. At $5200 on DK there are better options, but if you’re in a pinch at the flex in a PPR league you could do much worse.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

James White

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Gronk Out


Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

Fantasy Goo: There should be plenty of TE’s on the waiver wire this week, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Evan Engram, Cameron Brate, may be already owned at this point, but Tyler Kroft or Dwayne Allen should still be out there.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Sneaky Start


The Patriots newly acquired TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable to play Sunday in Denver. WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) is out.

Amendola is questionable, but expected to play. At $5200 on DK there are better options, but if you’re in a pinch at the flex in a PPR league you could do much worse.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

James White

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Gronk Out


Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking.

New England Patriots

Waiver Wire Target


Dion played on 26 snaps and got the ball in his hand 14 times. He’s the back to own in New England until he fumbles or gets hurt, then he won’t be. Just ask Mike Gillislee.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

James White

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Gronk Out


Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

Fantasy Goo: There should be plenty of TE’s on the waiver wire this week, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Evan Engram, Cameron Brate, may be already owned at this point, but Tyler Kroft or Dwayne Allen should still be out there.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

But a release isn't out of the picture as they already ate Brock Osweiler's massive contract. Regardless Corey Coleman is the clear WR to own in Cleveland.

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Last season, Brady saw his divisional rival, the New York Jets, twice. He finished the season with 500 yards, 5 TDs, and nary a TD against the boys in green.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

James White

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


James White is 6th among all running backs with 22 receptions through 4 games. He amassed 10 receptions last game alone, but only managed to gain 47 yards through the air, with 7 yards coming on his lone carry for the game and was kept out of the end-zone. White will likely be matched up against LB Kendell Beckwith who earned an 86.4 overall grade on coverage skills through 4 weeks which is 7th among all eligible LB’s. (per Andrew Fleischer, Pro Football Focus) White has been a weekly start for fantasy owners, but with so many pass catchers on this team and the tough coverage he faces, it’s difficult to project if he will gain the individual stats to justify a roster spot.

Rob Gronkowski

New England Patriots

Gronk Out


Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is officially out tonight vs Bucs, he is battling a thigh contusion so this shouldn’t be an extended absence. The timing is absolutely awful though, as should be expected with the Patriots.

Fantasy Goo: There should be plenty of TE’s on the waiver wire this week, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Evan Engram, Cameron Brate, may be already owned at this point, but Tyler Kroft or Dwayne Allen should still be out there.

New England Patriots

The Worst Slot Corners are on the Thursday Night Stage


Danny Amendola and Adam Humphries, the two starting slot receivers in the Thursday night matchup, will face the worst two starting slot corners in the league according to PFF. Robert McClain will be on Amendola. He grades out as the worst starting slot corner at 34.1. Right behind him, is Eric Rowe, who will be on Humphries. Rowe earns a 34.4 from PFF. If you are playing the full slate on DFS, these guys could allow you to pay up at other spots.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Jackson Says Britt's Starting Job In Question


Hue Jackson was very disappointed in Britt week 1 and his starting job is up for grabs. Says Johnson: "Let's see where we go this week"

Fantasy Goo: We would expect that the analytical Browns front office would move Kenny Britt if he is not a starter due to his $5.6 million cap hit. But a release isn't out of the picture as they already ate Brock Osweiler's massive contract. Regardless Corey Coleman is the clear WR to own in Cleveland.

Considering the Pats have the hihgest implied score this week(32, allow me to rephrase... thirty-freakin-two), and the opposing dolphins allows the highest red zone efficiency to the opposition.

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart

The PYRO Fantasy Football Depth Chart is a rundown of where Team PYRO projects the fantasy production for each team at each position. It is NOT an attempt to inform you of the current starters for each team. For example, we are well aware that Brandon Manumaleuna is currently the starting TE for the Chicago Bears, but if you look at the Bears Team Page, we have Greg Olsen listed at TE. Why? We’re projecting that Greg Olsen will be the most Fantasy Football relevant TE for the Bears this season. Since Olsen will be the Bears leading FF point scorer at TE, it’s his name at the top of the TE column on our PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart.

New England Patriots - 2014 Preseason #FF Preview

new england patriots 2014 season #ff preview


 

 


New England Patriots - 2014 Preseason #FF Preview


 


 


Last year nine teams had three or more fantasy starters in the top 60 and it is likely that it’ll continue to be that way in 2014. This series: Dressed for Success, will look at NFL teams going into 2014 to find teams that have assembled the right players to be a treasure trove of fantasy studs. 


 


The team I am really excited about is New England, which finished the season ranking in the lower half of fantasy output at 19th. But three reasons I am high on drafting players on the Patriots going into next season are: 1) continuity at the starting positions; 2) an improved defense; 3) high risk and reward based on health players.


 


Last year was a first for many of the offensive starters on the Patriots; first year in the NFL for rookie WRs, first year for Edelman being the number one receiver, first year for Brady to be without Welker or Hernandez, first year without either starting TE available at the beginning of the season. Another year in this system will help the highly lauded WRs move the Patriots offense, which was unusually poor last year, gaining nearly 600 less yards in 2013 than in 2012. This team’s offense brought the recent up-tempo offense to the league a few years back and there’s every reason to believe that’s where Josh McDaniel’s wants to lead this offense in 2014.


 


Another reason for optimism is the team’s defense. The team’s defense started getting bitten by the injury bug early in the season, leaving opposing offenses on the field throughout the season. But with most two major free agent signings on defense, two stout corners, which had been a perennially weak position for the team, the Patriots should see a jump in converting three and outs. I am also convinced that Brandon LaFell is actually being brought in to be a corner, but I don’t have any proof of that. The Patriots defense could be a value pick with many owners and analysts overvaluing Brandon Browner’s four-game suspension at the beginning of the season and the rise of defenses in the NFC West and South. Bottom line is don’t be afraid to wait and get this defense that finished 12th on the season in standard scoring and will likely causing way more three and outs. Three and outs lead to the offense getting the chance to run up the score, which we know Belichick isn’t afraid to do.


 


The final reason I’m high on these players are because the Patriots are looking unsexy in fantasy this year and will all be available at points in the draft where the risk is lower and the chance of reward is high. Last year, Danny Amendola’s ADP was 49.53 (according to CBS Sports), which in light of his injury risk was unjustifiably high. With plenty of fantasy owners getting burned last year, expect his ADP to drop plenty now. But as with DeSean Jackson last year, picking up Danny Amendola in the 8th round or later has potential to be an ADP victory. Danny managed three 100 yard games while only playing in 12, so the potential is there. I wouldn’t move him earlier than the seventh or eighth round in standard scoring though because historically, he has trouble finding the end zone. But then again, historically his QBs were Marc Bulger, rookie Sam Bradford, and third year Sam Bradford.


 


Another player that will see his ADP fall is Stevan Ridley, who soared to an ADP of 23.75 in 2013. In light of the Patriots being a true Running-Back-by-Committee (when a group of running backs wear onesies together, there’s a pretty good chance it’ll be a committee) and Ridley’s characteristically poorly timed fumbles, his ADP should be lower than borderline second round pick. But the Patriots did score the 2nd most running TDs in the league last season, first the year before, and Ridley continued to produce the most yards of all Patriots RBs. If I see Ridley slip past the third round in a standard league, I would take him. He might even make you a fan of onesies.

The two other health risk-and-reward players on the Patriots are Shane Vereen and Rob Gronkowski. Both players missed most of the regular season with injuries; Vereen breaking his wrist and Gronkowski recovering from back surgery and subsequently took a shoulder to the knee.

This Bill Belichick gif pretty much sums up the reaction of Gronkowski Fantasy owners last year


 


The risks with Gronkowski are real; he hasn’t played a full season since 2011. But whatever health voodoo curse he is afflicted with hasn’t prevented him from producing three double digit TD seasons even in limited play. If Gronkowski could play a full or even two thirds of a season and replicates his prior production, he would be a great value after the third round. 




Going into 2014, Gronkowski is still rehabbing from surgery and there is no estimate on when he will return. Everything indicates this offseason will be a repeat of waiting on Gronkowski. If Gronkowski started playing in the preseason, I would start drafting him in the late second-third round, but if he is likely to miss a couple of games in the beginning of the season, I would wait until he fell to the 5th round. If someone in your league auto-drafts Gronkowski and is impatient about not having Gronk for a number of games, be sure send him some trade requests. 




Being down a starter for any portion of the fantasy season can be hard to overcome, so if you draft Gronkowski, all your other draft picks should be starters. But, if I were to take a chance on any injury-prone player, I’d take a chance on Gronkowski. 


 


Shane Vereen has been injured every season in some way. Last season was supposed to be his break out season and his first game had every indication of a breakout, getting 101 rushing yards on 14 rushes, seven catches and 58 receiving yards. But after breaking his wrist and returning in November, he never rushed more than 10 times in a game.


 


A year removed from his injury and with a less crowded backfield, he has sleeper potential if enough fantasy owners pass on him due to his injury history. His value in PPR versus standard is huge; he averaged 6 catches a game in 2013. He has the potential to be the 2013 Danny Woodhead of 2014, who finished as the 19th best RB in standard. He runs a terrific wheel route and gets plenty of red zone looks.  


 


It’s an exciting time to be drafting the Patriots, who performed uncharacteristically poorly in 2013. The Patriots players will reward fantasy owners who are willing to draft these players and not let them slide too far.

The Tuck Rule Game

Rule 3, Section 22, Article 2, Note 2 of the NFL rule book, which states that "any intentional forward movement of [the thrower's] arm starts a forward pass, even if the player loses possession of the ball as he is attempting to tuck it back toward his body."

That is the NFL’s Tuck rule, which was instituted in 1999. The rule was repealed in March of 2013 by a vote of 29-1 with two abstentions. The reason for the repeal was due to this controversial call impacting games at key moments. There is no better example of this happening than during a Divisional Playoff game in Foxboro between the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders on January 19th, 2002, which has since come to be known as “The Tuck Rule Game”.

Tom Brady had taken over as the Patriots quarterback, after Drew Bledsoe was knocked out earlier in the season, and was preparing to start his first ever playoff game. The Oakland Raiders had made the long cross-country trip after defeating the New Yorks Jets at home the previous week. The Raiders were coached by Jon Gruden, and had started the season 8-2, but finished 10-6, losing their final three games of the regular season. The Raiders would not only have to deal with the time zone adjustment, but the California team also had to deal winter conditions.  It was a blustery New England day, with 28-degree temperatures, wind, and a steady snowfall.

The game began with each time fighting to find their footing, and neither team was able to score in the first quarter. The Raiders had the ball in good field position at the start of the second quarter, and proceeded to drive 50 yards downfield, culminating in a James Jett 13-yard touchdown catch. That would be the only score of the half, with the Raiders leading 7-0.

The Patriots received the second half kickoff, and Tom Brady led a methodical six minute plus drive down to the Raiders five-yard line, but stalled out there. The Patriots would have to settle for an Adam Vinatieri 23-yard field goal, to cut the lead to 7-3. The Raiders dominated the rest of the third quarter scoring, but only mustered two Sebastian Janikowski field goals and a 13-3 lead heading into the final quarter.

It was at this point that Tom Brady gave the first glimpse of the clutch quarterback he would become. The Patriots got possession of the ball at their own 33-yard line, with 12:29 left to play.   Brady would complete nine consecutive passes on the drive, which ended with a Brady 6-yard scramble for a touchdown and only 7:57 remaining in the game. The Patriots now trailed 13-10.

The Raiders then put a decent drive together, but stalled out at the Patriots 45-yard line and were forced to punt. Brady and the Pats were unable to do anything on the drive, and were forced to punt back to the Raiders with only 2:41 left to play in the game. Charlie Garner ran for seven yards on the first play, followed by the Patriots first timeout. Garner would carry again for two yards, followed by the Patriots second timeout. On the crucial third and one play the Raiders gave the ball to 240-pound fullback Zack Crockett, who was shut down for no gain by Teddy Bruschi and Ty Law. Oakland would have to punt. This is when the fun began.

Troy Brown returned the punt 27 yards, before he fumbled the ball. Luckily for the Patriots, teammate Larry Izzo recovered the fumble at the Patriots 46-yard line with 2:06 remaining. Brady would then complete a pass to Kevin Faulk for seven yards, followed by a scramble for five yards. New England had first and ten at the Raiders 42-yard line with 1:50 left to play. Tom Brady dropped back to pass, pumped the ball and pulled it back when it was knocked out of his hands by Oakland’s Charles Woodson, and recovered by teammate Greg Biekert. The ruling on the field by head referee Walt Coleman was fumbled and recovered by Oakland, but the game was inside the two-minute warning meaning replays were initiated by the replay official. Replay official Rex Stuart called for a review of the play. The replay showed that Brady started to throw the ball but when he felt Woodson’s pressure he brought the ball back, bringing his throwing arm down and tucking the ball, like he was going to run with or protect the ball.

When Walt Coleman exited the replay booth, he ruled that the pass was incomplete due to the tuck rule. It was at this point that NFL fans became acutely aware of Rule 3, Section 22, Article 2, Note 2 of the NFL rulebook. The Patriots maintained possession of the ball and would finish the drive five plays later with an Adam Vinatieri 45-yard field goal to tie the game 13-13 with only 0:32 left in regulation. The game would go to overtime, and it was clear that the wind had been taken out of the Raiders sails after the tuck call took their fumble recovery away.

New England won the toss, and elected to receive the overtime kickoff. Brady led the Patriots on the first of many big game winning drives. Brady would complete nine consecutive passes during the 15-play, 61-yard drive that lasted 8:25. Brady drove the Patriots all the way to the Raiders 5-yard line, before Adam Vinatieri sealed the game with a 23-yard field goal.

Needless to say, Oakland felt cheated out of this game, and it would even cost Jon Gruden his job with the Raiders. It would go on to become known as “The Tuck Rule Game”, and it will forever remain that way in history, now that the rule has been abolished. The impact of this game became two fold, as it also became the catalyst to Tom Brady becoming Tom Brady. If the Raiders had won that game, it would have been one and done for Tom in his first playoff game. Instead, he would rally that into his first of three Super Bowl victories. The Raiders would make it to the Super Bowl the following season, although they would run into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, coached by Jon Gruden, who destroyed his former team 48-21. In the end, the tuck rule was all bad for Oakland, and all good for New England and Tom Brady.
