News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Nov 24): Martin isn't healthy yet, but injuries to Aaron Dobson and Danny Amendola will make him important in the Patriots pass offense once he is ready to go. He's worth a stash to see if he can gain a big role by the time the fantasy playoffs are here.
General News (Fri Nov 27): partially participated in Friday's practice and is questionable to play this week.

Week 12: at Denver Broncos
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Tom Brady got hit a good bit by Buffalo, but he kept grinding down the Bills' defense and eventually the game opened up a bit - on the day Brady threw 20/39 for 277 net passing yards, one TD and one interception. Without Julian Edelman on the field, Danny Amendola (12 targets for 9/117/0 receiving) and Brandon LaFell (eight for 4/66/0) led the receiving corps in targets, while Rob Gronkowski faced a lot of coverage and managed just 2/37/0 out of seven chances. It wasn't the most explosive game Brady ever played, but the Patriots wound up with a 'W' anyway. The Broncos' pass D is ranked first in the NFL averaging 190.6 net passing yards allowed per game, they are first in the NFL with just eight passing scores given out to date, and have generated 34 sacks (first in the NFL). The team also has 10 interceptions so far (tied for 11th in the NFL). Over the past four weeks (four games), this team is fourth-least in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks (15.9 on average); eighth-least in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends (5.9); and is third-least in the league in fantasy points given out to opposing wide receivers (11.9). Any way you slice it these guys are dominant pass defenders. Last week Jay Cutler posted 18/32 for 261 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown against Denver - in Chicago. This is a tough matchup for any NFL quarterback this season.

2015 Week 6 vs IND (2 / 1 / 39 / 0 rec)
Martin's big play came on a deep ball by Tom Brady with a great over-the-shoulder adjustment from the receiver himself. Beyond that, Martin wasn't a huge part of the gameplan, and could be phased out even more pending the return of Brandon LaFell.
2015 Week 3 vs JAX (3 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)
Surprisingly, roughly a week after being acquired from the Texans, Keshawn Martin was active and played a role in the Patriots win. His critical catch was his touchdown, which saw Tom Brady forced to scramble to his left due to pressure. Martin picked up on this, broke his route and rolled left with his quarterback, allowing Brady to toss the ball to Martin for a score. Credit to both QB and receiver on the play.
