  Patriots | Tom Brady struggling deep    Tue Sep 16, 10:43 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is 3-for-20 on passing attempts of 15 yards or more in the first two weeks.

Footballguys view: Brady just looks off. There's plenty of fantasy owners out there who are disappointed in what Brady has done this year. That could change for a couple of reasons in Week 3. First, the Patriots are playing at home for the first time this year. Second, they play the Raiders. Expect Brady to bounce back this week.

The New England Patriots have declared CB Alfonzo Dennard, RB James White, LB Jamie Collins, WR Kenbrell Thompkins, DL Michael Buchanan, C Ryan Wendell, DE Zach Moore inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Aaron Dobson should be a full go with Thompkins inactive. He's a what the heck flex play, and he shouldn't be on shallow waiver wires.

  Patriots | Three ruled out for Week 2    Sat Sep 13, 09:20 PM

New England Patriots Jamie Collins (thigh), Ryan Wendell (knee) and Michael Buchanan (ankle) have been ruled out for the team's Week 3 game Sunday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: Collins is a loss for a team that had a lot of trouble with the Dolphins last week. He can rush the passer and drop into coverage with equal aplomb. The Patriots defense seemed to be a lot stronger with the addition of Darrelle Revis, but that change is yet to be seen.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 2.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson ready to produce    Fri Sep 12, 01:17 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson wasn't surprised that he was a healthy inactive in Week 1, because he missed a lot of the offseason and preseason. However, he's now ready to produce if his number is called on game day. The team could use his size and downfield presence in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, but it's unknown if he'll be active. Dobson has gradually increased his workload and stamina since the offseason and surgery to fix a stress fracture in his foot March 10.

Footballguys view: Dobson's number of snaps and role vs. the Vikings is unknown, but in deeper leagues, it's time to pick him up if he went undrafted. He should be on waiver wire speed dial in all leagues in case he and Tom Brady get something good going deep.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski remains limited    Wed Sep 10, 05:19 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Footballguys view: In other news, water is wet. Gronkowski should be limited in practice all week--maybe even all year--long. Let's make this simple: if Gronkowski plays (regardless of being on any sort of "play count") he needs to be in your lineup.

  Patriots | Tom Brady practicing    Wed Sep 10, 12:10 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) is participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should be concerned with Brady. He just looked a little off in Week 1 against the Dolphins. On throws over 15 yards, Brady was off target (overthrown or underthrown) on 61 percent of his passes. We'll see if he can turn things around (on the road again) against the Vikings.

  Patriots | Tom Brady struggles with pressure    Tue Sep 9, 05:16 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady struggled under pressure against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Sept. 7. Brady was pressured on 16 dropbacks, according to ESPN, and went 0-for-6 with four sacks while under pressure in the second half.

Footballguys view: Brady just looked off in Week 1 against the Dolphins. We're not expecting that trend to continue, but it is worth noting for fantasy owners who waited on quarterback and have another startable option in addition to Brady.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson will not play    Sun Sep 7, 12:07 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson has been declared inactive for Week 1.

The New England Patriots have declared WR Aaron Dobson, C Bryan Stork, DL Chris D. Jones, LB Darius Fleming, RB James White, OL Josh Kline, DL Michael Buchanan inactive for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Rob Gronkowski is active and should be in your lineups despite a likely limited snap count. Dobson played in the fourth preseason game, but the Patriots are being cautious and holding him out, giving Kenbrell Thompkins a chance to make some noise today.

New England Patriots Rob Gronkowski (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 4, though Gronkowski has already expressed he will play this week.

Footballguys view: We got mixed signals on Gronk earlier this week with the franchise hedging, but the tight end is insisting he will go full Gronk against the Dolphins. If he plays he should put up great points but you have to have an alternative tight end just in case of emergency.
