  Patriots | Tom Brady shaky vs. Miami    Sun Dec 14, 02:19 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has not been at his best versus the Miami Dolphins in recent years. Since a monster 2011 Week 1 game, in which he threw for 517 yards and four touchdowns, Brady has thrown more than one touchdown pass just twice in six outings and has not topped 300 yards in four of those games.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins have a good pass rush and poor run defense, so the Patriots are likely to run a lot today. Still, Brady is a top 8-10 QB option in any scenario and deserves trust over options that haven't had nine straight games with multiple passing touchdowns.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Footballguys view: LaFell has been pretty steady this year and he makes for a solid WR3/Flex option as long as he is active against the Dolphins.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman questionable    Fri Dec 12, 05:46 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

  Patriots | Shane Vereen's status in question    Fri Dec 12, 05:40 PM

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Footballguys view: Vereen hasn't been a good fantasy option all season, with the exception of a breakdown in the Jets coverage that allowed him a two touchdown game, and a decent game when he scored in a win over Denver. He's nothing but a desperation option.

  Patriots | Shane Vereen limited again    Thu Dec 11, 06:27 PM

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Vereen is a middling starter, not better than a RB4 and the injury could limit his numbers even more. At best he's a flex start and not a compelling one.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman, Brandon LaFell limited    Thu Dec 11, 06:24 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (thigh) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder) were both limited for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Both players are borderline WR3/WR4 starts against Miami. We like Edelman a little more since he has more reliability but it's been a coin-flip in terms of production this season.

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: Vereen has fallen behind LeGarrette Blount in the Patriots snap count each week. Fantasy owners should consider him nothing more than a flex play or 'what the heck' flex in deeper leagues.

The New England Patriots have declared CB Alfonzo Dennard, OT Cameron Fleming, DL Chandler Jones, LB Chris White, LB Dont'a Hightower, RB James White, OT Jordan Devey inactive for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Hightower and Jones are two of the most talented players in a front seven already missing Jerod Mayo, so Philip Rivers' job has gotten a little bit easier.

OT Marcus Cannon (hip) fully practiced and is probable.

Footballguys view: Jones could be back this week, just as Hightower's shoulder is becoming an issue. They'll need as much help as they can get against Philip Rivers this week.

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (thigh) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder) were both limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson going on IR    Thu Dec 4, 11:41 AM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (hamstring) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, according to a source.

Footballguys view: As we've mentioned before, Dobson has had no impact this season, so this shouldn't hurt your team at all. The biggest question is whether he is worth any dynasty roster spots and given how little he did this year, it seems to us the answer is likely, no.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman expects to play    Thu Dec 4, 11:12 AM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (thigh) said he expects to play in Week 14 even though he aggravated his calf injury during the team's Week 13 game.

Footballguys view: Edelman should have a pretty good day against a suspect San Diego defense and has been targeted 43 times in the last four games so he gets chances. Unfortunately, his production is very up and down, so his ceiling is limited by unpredictability. Still he should be good as a WR3 this week.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson could go on IR    Thu Dec 4, 11:12 AM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (hamstring) could be placed on the Reserve/Injured list because of the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Dobson has been hurt or inactive most of the season so the negative fantasy impact on your team from this news should be zero.

  Patriots | Shane Vereen practices on limited basis    Wed Dec 3, 08:03 PM

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) was able to take part in practice as a limited participant Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Footballguys view: Vereen is a small part of an offense which is ever-shifting, so you cannot rely on him as more than an RB4.

  Patriots | Brandon LaFell has limited practice    Wed Dec 3, 08:02 PM

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder) was able to take part in practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Footballguys view: LaFell has finally come into his own the last few games, and appears to have won Brady's trust. Don't go nuts, but if you start him as a WR3, you shouldn't be disappointed.
