  Patriots | Shane Vereen plays 62 snaps    Mon Nov 24, 12:17 PM

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen had a team-high 62 snaps in the team's Week 12 win over the Detroit Lions, but RB LeGarrette Blount had 17 snaps and two touchdowns in his team debut, while RB Brandon Bolden had just two snaps.

Footballguys view: Ah, the ever-changing situation in the New England backfield. Jonas Gray's fantasy owners are quite sad over the signing of Blount. It only thins out the touches available on a weekly basis.

  Patriots | Tim Wright sees extensive action    Sun Nov 23, 06:47 PM

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright played a season-high 60 snaps in Week 12 against the Detroit Lions, which shattered his previous best of 21 snaps, which he hit twice. He finished with five receptions for 36 yards and two touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Wright's use will be variable, but he can definitely deliver in the end zone when he is used. There are worse desperation plays at tight end, and Wright is also a viable handcuff to Rob Gronkowski for nervous owners.

  Patriots | Jonas Gray learns tough lesson    Sun Nov 23, 06:45 PM

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray did not play in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions after he did not report to the team's facility Friday, Nov. 21. He missed practice because he overslept. After the game, head coach Bill Belichick said only: 'We do what we think is best. That's what we did today.'

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount back with vengeance    Sun Nov 23, 06:45 PM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount carried 12 times for a team-high 78 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions after re-signing with the team this week.

Footballguys view: Jonas Gray overslept and Blount's career got the wake-up call. You have to presume that Blount is the Patriots power back to own now, even though it's clear Gray is plenty capable. Next week they both go to Lambeau to play the Packers.

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray will play Sunday, Nov. 23, after being late to practice Friday, Nov. 21. He'll split carries with RB LeGarrette Blount in Week 12.

  Patriots | Jonas Gray missing from practice    Fri Nov 21, 01:13 PM

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray (undisclosed) was a no-show at practice Friday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: Gray overslept and might be subject to discipline in the game vs. Detroit. He wasn't a good play against the top-end Lions rush defense anyway, so this should give you the extra nudge to bench him.

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount won't unseat Jonas Gray    Fri Nov 21, 10:23 AM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount was not signed by the team to replace RB Jonas Gray as the between-the-tackles runner. Blount's presence gives the team another tough inside runner in the potentially poor-weather weeks ahead.

Footballguys view: Hopefully you didn't drop Gray on the news of Blount's signing. Blount could have value if Gray goes down, but Gray is still the primary power back.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman limited again    Thu Nov 20, 04:54 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (thigh) was limited again in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: If he does play, we see him as a WR3 this week. Edelman has been a bit inconsistent week to week this year and had only seen the end zone twice.

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount signs    Thu Nov 20, 08:27 AM

The New England Patriots signed free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Steelers) to a two-year deal for the veteran's minimum plus incentives Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: This is likely to cap Jonas Gray's ceiling although to be honest, he's not hitting 30-plus carries again any time soon anyway. Shane Vereen is still is still the better play, although that just means a high-end RB3. Gray is really just an RB4 with some upside, and a player fantasy owners should consider against weak run defenses.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman limited Wednesday    Wed Nov 19, 04:48 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (thigh) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Footballguys view: Edelman could be a big asset for the Patriots this week as they face a tough front seven of the Lions defense. Having a receiver get open quickly on underneath routes will help Tom Brady get rid of the ball before the pass-rushers of Detroit can get to him.

  Patriots | Jonas Gray facing tough opponent    Tue Nov 18, 04:46 PM

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray had a huge performance in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts, but ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss expects a difference offensive approach in the backfield against the Detroit Lions, who are ranked No. 1 in the league against the run.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have a plan for the Colts--running them over with a power back like Gray works well. Facing the Lions is a different story, and fantasy owners need to adjust. Coming off a white-hot week, fantasy owners need to dial back expectations for Gray because of the opponent.

  Patriots | Jonas Gray sets franchise record    Mon Nov 17, 01:17 PM

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray rushed for a career-high 199 yards and scored a franchise-record four touchdowns in Week 11. Gray was on the field for 53 snaps and carried the ball 38 times.

Footballguys view: The Patriots know how to run the ball. Gray runs a lot like Stevan Ridley, and he absolutely smashed the Colts defense on Sunday night. He'll continue to get touches as the lead back, but (of course) still be splitting time with Shane Vereen.

  Patriots | Danny Amendola's role growing    Fri Nov 7, 10:19 AM

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola's role has grown with the team's increased usage of three-receiver sets. The team used three wide receivers in 47 of 86 offensive plays last week.

Footballguys view: Amendola still doesn't have consistent fantasy value, but if Julian Edelman gets dinged up - and he has been injury-prone in the past - Amendola could have a quick return to fantasy prominence. Keep him on your waiver wire speed dial.
