Summary

Mayo has missed 20 out of 32 games over the past two years, which makes it tough to know if you can rely on him for a full season. He is coming back from a torn patella tendon this year, after being knocked out with a torn pectoral muscle a year earlier. The Patriots reworked his contract and he took a small pay cut to stick around and put the last two years behind him. The one benefit of his injuries is it allowed the Patriots to figure out what they had in Jamie Collins and Donta Hightower, both of whom came up huge in their run to a championship last year. With those two and Mayo in the lineup, the Patriots should have one of the best LB groups in the league and they should find ways to keep all 3 on the field even in passing situations. Mayo may no longer be a LB1 with the added competition from a player like Collins, but he should still be a solid fantasy starter. (May 21)
