Huddle Up: The Patriots' receiving corps takes another hit with Mitchell on IR. This also sheds some more light on the acquisition of Phillip Dorsett. Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola will now be called on even more often, but Brandin Cooks and Rob Gronkowski will see the bulk of targets. Plus, we know the Patriots like to implement their running backs in the passing game. Make sure to put Mitchell on an IR slot in your leagues in order to be able to add someone, like Amendola, off waivers.

Huddle Up: Mitchell's stock rose when Julian Edelman went down for the year, but Edelman's loss benefits Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan more than Mitchell. Even if Mitchell plays, he is at best a flex play in deeper leagues versus a tough defense.

Huddle Up: Mitchell could be active for Week 1 but probably will not have a big role since he missed most of the preseason. Owners should look for other options to use in their lineups.

Huddle Up: Mitchell appears to have a chance to play in Week 1 even though he was sidelined for most of the preseason. He could have a bigger role in the passing game with Julian Edelman out for the season. Owners may want to see how he is used in the passing game before using him on their lineups.

Huddle Up: Mitchell was a pleasant surprise as a fourth-round rookie in 2016, but he figures to be reduced to more of a specialty role as a sophomore after New England added Brandin Cooks to a receiver corps that already boasts Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan. As such, Mitchell will have a hard time being fantasy-relevant this season barring a rash of injuries in front of him on the depth chart.
