  Patriots | Two touchdowns for Chris Hogan    Sun Sep 24, 06:02 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught four passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Hogan was left completely alone on his long score, in a scene that should be repeated as defenses try to track Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks. He'll be a high ceiling WR2 heading into a matchup with Carolina.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski posts 89 yards, TD    Sun Sep 24, 06:00 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught eight passes for 89 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski doesn't look quite as strong or fast as years past, but the numbers are there and Tom Brady is still looking to him in crucial situations. He's the most valuable fantasy tight end heading into a matchup with the Panthers.

  Patriots | Brandon Cooks has breakout game    Sun Sep 24, 05:56 PM

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught five passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Cooks had near misses in the first two weeks that turned into hits in this game. He's a boom/bust strong WR2 heading into a matchup with the Panthers.

  Patriots | James White not a big factor    Sun Sep 24, 05:56 PM

New England Patriots RB James White rushed for 17 yards on five carries against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He also caught one pass for 11 yards in the game.

Footballguys view: White was a big disappointment with Rex Burkhead out. He wasn't able to become a core part of the offense and appears to be a matchup flex play at best right now.

  Patriots | Mike Gillislee held in check    Sun Sep 24, 05:53 PM

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee rushed for 31 yards on 12 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Footballguys view: The downside of Gillislee was apparent in this one as the Patriots scored all five touchdowns through the air. He's a boom/bust RB2 against Carolina next week.

  Patriots | Tom Brady throws for five TDs    Sun Sep 24, 05:48 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady went 25-for-35 for 378 yards and five touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Brady took a ton of hits, but hung tough and put together one of the best game-winning drives of his career. He might be ahead of Aaron Rodgers as the most valuable fantasy quarterback heading into a matchup with Carolina.

The New England Patriots have declared OL Cole Croston, LB Dont'a Hightower, CB Eric Rowe, LB Harvey Langi, OT Marcus Cannon, WR Matthew Slater, RB Rex Burkhead inactive for Week 3.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Hogan has a chance for a very good game against the Texans banged up secondary. At least a few Patriots pass-catching options should have a good day today.

  Patriots | Taylor Heinicke added to practice squad    Sat Sep 23, 05:08 PM

Updating a previous report, the New England Patriots signed QB Taylor Heinicke to their practice squad Saturday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: Heinicke was an interesting deep dynasty prospect with the Vikings. They let him go and picked up Kyle Sloter when the Broncos let him go after the preseason, and now Heinicke lands in New England. He's just a scout-team arm, but with New England we are monitoring him in the deepest dynasty leagues.

Free-agent WR Corey Brown (Bills) and WR Tavarres King (Giants) worked out for the New England Patriots Friday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are just updating their emergency list here. Obviously, they are looking for some speed at the WR position by working out Brown and King.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and officially is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: All signs point to Gronkowski playing on Sunday vs. Houston but check back in the morning just in case.

  Patriots | Danny Amendola listed as questionable    Fri Sep 22, 05:23 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion, knee) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and he is considered questionable for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: He should play and could be healthier than Chris Hogan or Phillip Dorsett, but Amendola is only a boom/bust WR3/Flex after his strong Week 1 and early exit.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski proclaims himself ready    Fri Sep 22, 02:39 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) told reporters Friday, Sept. 22, he is ready to play Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski could always aggravate the injury in-game, but his #1 overall tight end weekly ceiling makes playing him more than worth the risk.

  Patriots | Danny Amendola ready for Week 3    Fri Sep 22, 01:59 PM

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee, concussion) proclaimed himself 'good to go' for Week 3 versus the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Amendola has a high ceiling WR3/Flex outlook after a very productive partial game against the Chiefs in Week 1, although he always carries a high in-game injury risk.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead misses another practice    Fri Sep 22, 01:47 PM

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (rib) did not participate in practice all week and will likely be ruled out for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Dion Lewis could get more work this week against the team he scored three touchdowns against in last year's playoffs. James White also becomes a better PPR play with this news.

  Patriots | Limited practice for Chris Hogan     Thu Sep 21, 04:41 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: If Hogan is healthy and ready to go, he should be a solid producer against Houston this weekend, a borderline WR2/WR3. The knee is a concern but he should be able to continue playing at a high level this year and fulfilling a promise we saw last season.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett limited Thursday    Thu Sep 21, 04:35 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Dorsett is worth a stash on a deeper bench, but even if he doesn't have a lingering issue with his knee, it could be some time before that investment bears fruit.

  Patriots | Danny Amendola a limited participant    Thu Sep 21, 04:32 PM

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion, knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: On his best days, Amendola is no more than a deep-bench flex, despite his massive Week 1. We don't expect a repeat this week, nor many times throughout the season and as far as we are concerned, he's a guy to throw in if you are shorthanded this week--no more.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski limited    Thu Sep 21, 04:25 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: He should play on Sunday, while also putting up some good numbers. He dominated the half he played in against the New Orleans Saints, but this is a much better defense against tight ends. We think he'll do well if he plays, and should produce his usual solid numbers, even if Tom Brady doesn't go to him as often as he would against a lesser defense.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead still not practicing    Thu Sep 21, 01:10 PM

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) remained absent from practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: It doesn't look good for Burkhead this weekend, which isn't going to hurt the Patriots at all. It does simplify the backfield a little though, and should make James White the best play--relatively speaking--in a murky situation. Consider White a great RB3 with upside if Burkhead is out.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead absent from practice Wednesday    Wed Sep 20, 01:58 PM

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (rib) was not at practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Watch to see if Burkhead can practice later in the week. If he's able to play in Week 3 against the Texans, Burkhead would only be a what-the-heck flex for fantasy owners.

  Patriots | Key Patriots practice Wednesday    Wed Sep 20, 01:36 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) and WR Danny Amendola (knee, concussion) were among a group of injured players who were able to practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski has previously stated that his groin injury was no big deal, and it certainly wasn't enough of a concern to keep him off the field for Wednesday's practice. If he plays - and it certainly looks like he will, he's a TE1 for your fantasy team.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett hopes to practice    Mon Sep 18, 06:54 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (knee) said his knee is a little sore but hopes to participate in practice this week.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are banged up on offense, so having Dorsett available would help. Dorsett was able to catch three passes for 68 yards before exiting the game against the Saints in Week 2.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski day-to-day    Mon Sep 18, 06:43 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) said he is feeling good and considers himself day-to-day.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski was banged up against the Saints but he had a big day for fantasy owners in Week 2. We'll likely see him limited in practice this week. Check back on Friday at the latest to get an idea of whether or not Gronkowski is going to give it a go in Week 3 against the Texans.

  Patriots | Dont'a Hightower update    Mon Sep 18, 10:41 AM

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower's (knee) medial collateral ligament injury is believed to be a two-to-three-week injury, and he could return in Week 3 or Week 4.

Footballguys view: Hightower has a chance to play this week. We should see him return to the field in Week 4 at the latest. It's great news for the Patriots as Hightower is a difference maker on that defense.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski injury not serious    Mon Sep 18, 08:17 AM

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (groin) will test his groin injury Monday, Sept. 18, but it's not believed to be serious.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Patriots and fantasy owners here. The Patriots offense was on fire against a bad Saints defense on Sunday. Gronk is a must start every week regardless of the matchup.
