Week 3: at Detroit Lions

All WR vs DET

FBG says: Great matchup. Tom Brady still presides over an elite, dynamic passing game, one capable of massive volume and efficiency on any given week. But as presently constructed, this isn't a matchup-busting unit. Brady's receiving corps has been ravaged by injury and suspension, leaving him with little real explosiveness beyond Rob Gronkowski and Chris Hogan. Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson are ideally slot and gadget types, and with his tackles looking shaky, Brady has little opportunity to uncork down the field. That could change before too long with Josh Gordon in the fold, but six days post-trade may be asking a bit much in this offense. He'll likely see 20-25 snaps Sunday and be given at least one opportunity to win a downfield ball, though. As for Gronkowski, he remains wildly dynamic and almost impossible to keep off the stat sheet. He's routinely Brady's first read on downfield routes, and he's still dominating linebackers and safeties up the seams. The Detroit pass defense hasn't been tested much here in 2018, with opponents spending most of their time in clock-grinding mode. But there's trouble afoot, as this isn't a unit to fear from virtually any angle. The secondary generally isn't bad, stocked with a shutdown type in Darius Slay a ballhawking centerfielder in Glover Quin. But there's little pass rush beyond Ezekiel Ansah to truly pressure a pocket, so those strong defenders are exposed too often. And Slay may not suit up Sunday after being concussed in Week 2. Handing Tom Brady this matchup with Slay on the sideline would be almost unfair, and would make for arguably the week's biggest mismatch.

Patriots | Corey Coleman released (Mon Sep 17, 04:38 PM) - New England Patriots WR Corey Coleman was released Monday, Sept. 17, to make room for WR Josh Gordon, according to a source.

Our View: Coleman didn't make it a week with his new team. A 2016 first-round pick of the Browns, Coleman has now been on three teams in the span of a couple of months. Coleman is now looking for a new home and should get a shot with some team...we'll see if he can hang onto the roster this time around.

Patriots | Corey Coleman signing with Pats (Tue Sep 11, 09:42 AM) - Free-agent WR Corey Coleman (Browns) will sign with the New England Patriots Tuesday, Sept. 11. Terms weren't disclosed.

Our View: Coleman, a first-round pick in 2016, was traded from the Browns to the Bills earlier this year. He didn't make the 53-man roster with the Bills and found himself on the open market. The Patriots have a thin group of wide receivers and Coleman will get a chance to turn things around. In deep dynasty leagues we'll take a chance on him again if the price is cheap.
