New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) participated in 11-on-11 drills for the first time this offseason Monday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: He's getting closer to returning to the field. Gronkowski is a top-3 fantasy tight end if healthy. Fantasy owners should look at him as a second- or third-round pick in any format.

  Patriots | Jeremy Gallon off PUP    Mon Aug 18, 02:09 PM

New England Patriots WR Jeremy Gallon (undisclosed) is off the Physically Unable to Perform list and back at practice.

Footballguys view: The rookie receiver from Michigan can get open with ease. He's lightning quick and fast when running after the catch. Gallon is unlikely to make the final roster, but he could find a home on the practice squad if he impresses in camp.

  Patriots | Justin Jones re-signed    Sun Aug 17, 10:51 PM

The New England Patriots have re-signed free-agent TE Justin Jones. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jones is a towering tight end who lacks great athleticism but could find a spot on a team that loves to cycle through tight end depth in attempts to rekindle the two tight end set look they lost when Aaron Hernandez's career ended abruptly.

  Patriots | Stevan Ridley fumbles    Sat Aug 16, 11:36 AM

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley lost a fumble during the second preseason game and did not return to the game. It is not known if the benching was due to the fumble.

Footballguys view: What do you think? The guy with fumbling problems..the guy who has been benched due to fumbling before loses the football and he doesn't return to the game. Ridley could lose touches to rookie James White. Keep White in mind as a late-round sleeper in your fantasy drafts. His current ADP is RB51 (12.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Patriots | Kyle Arrington and Logan Ryan play safety    Sat Aug 16, 09:25 AM

New England Patriots CB Kyle Arrington and CB Logan Ryan both spent time at safety in the team's second preseason game. 'There's a lot more responsibility [playing safety],' said Arrington. 'You have to be in tune with the corner on your side and the linebackers. You have to be a little more vocal. ... It's just one of those deals where [you play] wherever the coach feels confident in putting guys on the team. We have the utmost confidence in ourselves to get the job done.'

'I've got so much confidence in him and what he's been able to do, and continue to achieve for us. So hopefully there will be a lot more of those.'

Footballguys view: There's a lot to like about Thompkins. He's athletic, can make big plays and he has outstanding body control. We'll see if he can be more consistent as a wideout this year.

New England Patriots CB Malcolm Butler drew praise from head coach Bill Belichick for his play in the team's second preseason game. 'He competes hard,' coach Bill Belichick said. 'I'd say he's played a lot of snaps in these first two games and gotten a lot of snaps in practice [and] he competes hard every day.'

  Patriots | No. 3 WR battle heating up    Sat Aug 16, 12:23 AM

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell and Kenbrell Thompkins each posted touchdown grabs in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, Aug. 15. LaFell was targeted three times, catching two for 29 yards and the score, while Thompkins had three receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown while being targeted four times.

Footballguys view: LaFell is a fine blocker, but he's had trouble consistently catching the ball in the past. Thompkins is the better athlete and can make difficult catches seem routine. We'll see if this battle continues to be close as the preseason rolls on.

  Patriots | Ryan Mallett steps up    Sat Aug 16, 12:19 AM

New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett (knee) came on in the second half of the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, completing seven of his 11 pass attempts for 92 yards and a touchdown. He also ran four times for nine yards and a score.

Footballguys view: Mallett is getting outplayed by a rookie. That kid is Jimmy Garropolo, the Patriots second-round pick out of Eastern Illinois. Mallett is in the final year of his contract, and this is likely his final season with the Patriots.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski favoring knee?    Thu Aug 14, 06:57 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) is still favoring his right knee in practice, and he ran with a decent limp Thursday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Oh fantastic. We had been told that Gronkowski was cleared and now he's limping. So is he healthy or is the knee acting up in a big way again. We'll watch this carefully and while we rank him as the No. 2 tight end in fantasy, know that there is a risk with Gronkowski and factor that into your draft board.

  Patriots | Terrence Miller to IR    Thu Aug 14, 06:08 PM

New England Patriots TE Terrence Miller (undisclosed) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Aug. 14. He will not count against the 90-man roster limit.

Footballguys view: Because one thing the Pats need is another tight end injury.


  Patriots | Jerod Mayo out again    Thu Aug 14, 02:34 PM

New England Patriots LB Jerod Mayo (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 14, for the third straight day.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are tight about injury information, but no details have come out yet that make us think that you need to change Mayo's position on your board.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson not cleared for contact    Thu Aug 14, 12:58 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) was limited to some position drills during practice Thursday, Aug. 14, but is still not cleared for contact.

Footballguys view: Dobson might avoid the PUP at his current rate of recovery, but it could be a stretch to see him doing much early in the season. At this point, he's just a late-round flier.

  Patriots | Nate Solder leaves practice    Thu Aug 14, 11:09 AM

New England Patriots OT Nate Solder (undisclosed) left practice early Thursday, Aug. 14, with a member of the training staff.

Footballguys view: There's no report of the nature of the issue yet, but Solder might be the most essential member of the Patriots offensive line, which wasn't always sound at keeping Tom Brady's pocket clean last year. We'll be watching this closely for you.

  Patriots | Down to barebones at TE    Thu Aug 14, 10:48 AM

New England Patriots TE Steve Maneri is the only tight end on the roster healthy for the second preseason game. FB James Develin could also fill in at tight end. TE Rob Gronkowski (knee), TE Michael Hoomanawanui (undisclosed) and TE DJ Williams (leg) are unlikely to play.

  Patriots | Ryan Mallett moving slowly    Thu Aug 14, 02:01 AM

New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett (undisclosed) saw more reps in practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, than he did the previously day, but he was still moving around gingerly due to an undisclosed lower body injury.

Footballguys view: Mallett is in the final year of his deal, and he's unlikely to be back with this team next year. We'll see if he can hold off rookie Jimmy Garoppolo for the primary backup job behind Tom Brady.

  Patriots | James White gets first-team reps    Thu Aug 14, 02:00 AM

New England Patriots RB James White saw a number of reps with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, with RB Stevan Ridley seeing most of his reps with the second-team offense. RB Shane Vereen also saw some reps with the top unit.

Footballguys view: Message! White has been a standout player for the Pats this offseason. The rookie back from Wisconsin is a good all-purpose runner who has impressed his QB Tom Brady. We'll see if he can get more involved than some think. Both Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley are in the final year of their contract, so White could be a featured player for the Pats in the near future.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski 50-50 for opener    Tue Aug 12, 11:11 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has a 50-50 chance to be ready for Week 1, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners take note here. Gronk is a top-3 fantasy tight end if healthy. He should be off the board in your league in the late second or early third round this year. Stay tuned to see if he can be ready for the start of the season.

  Patriots | Acquire Jerel Worthy    Tue Aug 12, 07:38 PM

The New England Patriots have acquired DE Jerel Worthy, pending a physical, from the Green Bay Packers, according to Worthy's agent.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski wearing non-contact jersey    Mon Aug 11, 03:47 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) donned the red non-contact jersey during 7-on-7 drills Monday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski is being eased into the lineup for the Patriots. There's no need for him to get hit during practice. Just keep him healthy for the start of the regular season and let him go. Gronk is a top-3 fantasy tight end who should come off the board in the second or third round in most drafts.

  Patriots | Two practicing    Mon Aug 11, 03:08 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) and DT Dominique Easley (knee) participated in positional drills Monday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: This is encouraging for Dobson, who isn't even assured of avoiding the PUP to begin the season without some progress. On the defensive side of the ball, Easley could be a big help to the Patriots pass rush, even if he is only playing a handful of snaps a game this year.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) said his knee is feeling good after taking some days off and has not suffered any setbacks in his recovery. He continues to be limited during practice and is not sure when he will be cleared for contact.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are wisely being cautious with Gronk--and for good reason. He's the most important target in the offense, and Gronk is a top-3 fantasy tight end if healthy.
