  Patriots | Tom Brady faces tough test    Wed Dec 7, 06:56 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is facing the NFL's No. 1 ranked defense in the Baltimore Ravens this week. He has fared well against elite defenses in his career, however, amassing a 6-0 record with 12 touchdowns and just three interceptions in home games versus No. 1 defenses.

  Patriots | Danny Amendola to miss time    Mon Dec 5, 11:19 AM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 13, and the team's plan is to have him ready for the playoffs.

Footballguys view: That means Amendola could be shut down for the rest of the regular season. A high-ankle sprain can linger if not given enough time to heal. With Chris Hogan back in action, the Pats offense won't miss a beat without Amendola.

  Patriots | Martellus Bennett almost invisible    Sun Dec 4, 07:17 PM

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett managed just two catches for four yards on four targets in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Bennett clearly is not 100%. He was targeted in the end zone but a good defensive play broke up the pass. You can hold him on your bench and hope he shows he is healthy, but he is only a stash for later right now.

  Patriots | Malcolm Mitchell targeted 10 times    Sun Dec 4, 07:16 PM

New England Patriots rookie WR Malcolm Mitchell posted eight grabs for 82 yards in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted 10 times.

Footballguys view: Mitchell has become a full-time player with Rob Gronkowski out. He's worth a WR3/Flex start against Baltimore next week.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman cracks century mark    Sun Dec 4, 07:15 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) pulled down eight receptions for 101 yards in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted a game-high 12 times.

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount finds end zone again    Sun Dec 4, 07:15 PM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was not targeted in the pass game.

Footballguys view: Blount had a long touchdown early in this one and that was enough to make his fantasy owners happy. He has a tough matchup against the Ravens next week but should still be worth an RB2 start.

  Patriots | Tom Brady earns 201st victory    Sun Dec 4, 07:14 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 33 of his 46 pass attempts for 269 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. With the win, he became the winningest quarterback in NFL history with 201 victories. 'It's always been about winning, and I've been very fortunate to be on a lot of great teams,' Brady said. 'I'm really grateful.'

Footballguys view: Brady was active in the short passing game and the team settled for four field goals, so his fantasy output was muted in this one. Next week brings the Ravens.

  Patriots | Martellus Bennett to play Sunday    Sun Dec 4, 10:12 AM

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) will play in Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Bennett is still not his old self and not an automatic play this week despite Rob Gronkowski's absence giving him the #1 tight end job. He's a boom/bust TE1 who should be benched for safer options if possible.

  Patriots | Malcolm Mitchell beating press coverage     Sat Dec 3, 10:59 PM

New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell has been catching everything in practice and is learning how to beat press coverage, according to CB Eric Rowe.

Footballguys view: Mitchell should see an increased role with Rob Gronkowski out. He deserves WR3/Flex consideration this week against the Rams.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured Reserve list Saturday, Dec. 3, according to source. The team also re-signed free-agent RB D.J. Foster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski's season is officially over with this move. He's now undergone three back surgeries, but the veteran tight end is expected to make a full recovery. The team should ease him into OTAs in 2017.

The New England Patriots signed FB Glenn Gronkowski to the practice squad Friday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: Gronkowksi has been off and on the Patriots roster all year long. The rookie from Kansas State is a lead blocker, but can be put in space as a receiver out of the backfield.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Hogan looked good despite the questionable tag last week. He has a high ceiling with his big play potential and a few targets shaken loose with the loss of Rob Gronkowski.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) suffered a herniated disc during the team's Week 13 game and will need to undergo surgery Friday, Dec. 2, according to a source. There is no timetable for his return.

Footballguys view: It looks like he could be done for the year, and he's certainly done for the fantasy season. Expectations are he will be gone for 8 weeks, which even makes playoff play uncertain. Expect a step up in production from Martellus Bennett, Julian Edelman and Dion Lewis. This is the third back surgery for Gronkowski in his career.

He has been cleared to attend a separate event later in the week, however.

Footballguys view: There's no word on Gronkowski's status this week as the Patriots are at home against the Rams. Make other plans at the tight end position just in case he misses the game.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) was listed as having missed practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, due to a foot injury. However, a source said there is nothing to worry about.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: Hogan is getting healthier, and as he gets better it could cut into the time/targets for Malcolm Mitchell. Either one is just a 'what the heck' flex against the Rams in Week 13.

  Patriots | Martellus Bennett misses practice    Wed Nov 30, 08:14 PM

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: Bennett's ankle isn't quite right, and he's been disappointing for fantasy owners. You'll have better options out there. We'd trust guys like Lance Kendricks (Rams), Vance McDonald (49ers) or Austin Hooper (Falcons) more than Bennett in Week 13.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, chest) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: It could be a day of rest...but it could be more. Gronkowski tried to play last week but exited the game early. The Patriots should be able to handle the Rams at home in Week 13, and they could do that without Gronkowski. Stay tuned.

  Patriots | Three Patriots RBs split snaps evenly    Mon Nov 28, 07:22 PM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount received 27 snaps during the team's Week 12 game, while RB James White received 26 snaps and RB Dion Lewis received 23 snaps. The Patriots ran three plays with White and Lewis on the field at the same time.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are going to have a level of frustration when it comes to predicting the Pats backfield on a weekly basis. The Jets are tough to run against, so the Patriots got creative with their running backs. Against softer run defenses, it could be a better day for Blount. At this time, it seems like White and Lewis are going to continue splitting time as receiving or change-of-pace backs.
