    Posted 1/18/17 11:19am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee) is participating in practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has caught a touchdown in three of his last five games but has at least 50 yards in only one of the last eight games. He has dealt with a variety of injures this season but will continue to have a solid role in the passing game. Bennett should be a decent option for owners in all fantasy leagues.

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has not posted great numbers in terms of his receiving yards but is a threat to score at least one touchdown each game. Owners should consider him a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

    Posted 1/15/17 9:56am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (leg) suffered a leg injury during the Divisional round playoff game but said he will be ready for the AFC Championship next week.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has been held to 35 yards or less in each of his last four games but entered the playoffs with three touchdowns in his last four regular season games. He has been receiving a consistent number of targets during games but is only a low-end No. 1 tight end at this point.

  • Malcolm Mitchell - WR
    Posted 1/14/17 6:56am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) has been declared out for the Divisional round playoff game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. WRs Michael Floyd and Danny Amendola could see increased snaps in his absence and are worthy of consideration as WR4 options in postseason fantasy leagues.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 1/14/17 7:35pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) exited against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, with a thigh injury and is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: If Hogan can't return, Michael Floyd should see a bump in action as the No. 2 receiver option behind Julian Edelman.

  • Dion Lewis - RB
    Posted 1/14/17 8:46pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis had 13 carries for 41 yards and a touchdown, two catches for 23 yards and a touchdown and returned a kickoff for a touchdown in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, becoming the first player in postseason history to have a rushing, receiving and return touchdown in the same game.

    Huddle Up: Lewis didn't have a touchdown during the regular season, but now that he is healthy, his versatility and upside are on full display.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 1/14/17 9:08pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount had eight carries for 31 yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: New England is notorious for favoring a certain back based on the matchup, and Blount was the odd man out tonight. He still has plenty of upside because of his touchdown potential, but fantasy owners have to accept occasional duds.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 1/14/17 9:03pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman finished with eight catches on 13 targets for 137 yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has now been targeted at least 11 times in seven of his last eight games, and he has topped 70 yards in every game during that span. He has one of the safest floors of any receiver.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 1/14/17 8:55pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 18 of his 38 passes for 287 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Brady threw just two interceptions in the regular season, but facing the tough Houston defense, he doubled his total. Even in a poor performance by his standards, he finished with a decent line, showcasing his high floor.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 1/14/17 9:36pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett had one catch for four yards on four targets in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, and he said after the game that he was pressing too hard.

    Huddle Up: Bennett's yardage totals fluctuate, but he is enough of a weapon in the red zone to roll out as a TE1 against most opponents.

  • Michael Floyd - WR
    Posted 1/14/17 9:25pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd finished with on catch on three targets for nine yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Floyd is probably still learning the playbook, but if Chris Hogan's injury turns out to be serious, Floyd could be in for a big performance in the conference title game.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 1/13/17 10:00am ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) took part in team meetings Friday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Blount missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday but has reportedly been at team headquarters on both days. Given his lack of practice time this week, he could see his snaps scaled back in Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Houston Texans, although he is a good bet to remain the team's goal-line back and score at least once if he plays. Continue to monitor this situation, but it appears for now he has a good shot at being active.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 1/13/17 3:02pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Blount has been a solid running back for the Patriots this season and found the end zone 18 times during the regular season. Blount likely will receive a lot of carries against the Texans and should be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 1/12/17 8:50am ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) is out of practice again Thursday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: It's not time to push the panic button yet. Blount had a fabulous season with 18 touchdowns, but the Patriots could go a different route in any given week. Also, Dion Lewis (knee) is healthy. Blount isn't a safe RB1 against the Houston Texans this weekend.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 1/11/17 1:52pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (thigh) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Brady had a week off to rest his injured thigh and will be ready for the game against the Houston Texans. Owners in all leagues should consider Brady for their starting lineups.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 1/11/17 1:41pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Blount should be able to play in the Divisional Round playoff game as long as he can recover from his illness. He will receive most of the carries against the Houston Texans and can be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 1/9/17 8:04am ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount had 24 rushes for 105 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 3 game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: He did that while J.J. Watt (back) was still active, but the Pats were without Tom Brady during his suspension and Dion Lewis (knee). So Blount may or may not have the same kind of workload in this playoff game. Houston was a top-five defense containing opposing RBs in fantasy the last five weeks of the season. Blount will be a better play as an RB2.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 1/7/17 8:58pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount set career highs with 299 carries, 1,161 yards and an NFL-high 18 touchdowns this season, and the Patriots ran the ball 45.6 percent of the time, their highest percentage since 2010.

    Huddle Up: Blount has been much more than a short-yardage back this season, but handling the goal-line carries for a high-scoring offense is a big part of his appeal. He has a safe floor and plenty of upside and should be one of the better running back plays throughout the playoffs.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 1/5/17 10:03am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (thigh) participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.

    Huddle Up: Brady is being limited during practice this week since the Patriots have a bye, but he will be fine for the Divisional Round playoff game. Owners should consider Brady a starting option in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 1/4/17 9:47am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (rest) is out of practice Wednesday, Jan. 4.

    Huddle Up: There's no cause for concern here. The Pats have a bye in the first round of the playoffs, and Brady will be a high-end option in all fantasy formats.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 1/1/17 7:13am ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (thigh) will play in Week 17's game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Brady was a limited participant in two practice sessions during the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report but there was little doubt he would be active for this contest. Continue to view him as a QB1 in all fantasy formats.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 1/1/17 7:22am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the Miami Dolphins but could see a limited number of snaps due to nagging ankle and shoulder injuries.

    Huddle Up: Bennett was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. Although he hasn't gained many receiving yards recently, he has two touchdowns in his last three games, making him worthy of consideration as a low-end TE1 option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 1/1/17 7:16pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) posted three receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown on five targets in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins. It was his third touchdown in the final four regular season games.

    Huddle Up: Bennett was on the injury report with a pair of injuries, but he looked pretty good. He'll have two weeks to mend before the team takes the field thanks to a first-round bye.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 1/1/17 7:15pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman racked up eight receptions for a season-high 151 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Edelman finished the season with at least five receptions in eight consecutive games, and he ended the season with 98 catches, 1,106 yards and three scores. He is a PPR fantasy owner's dream, and he will be a solid WR2 in most standard postseason fantasy formats.

  • Michael Floyd - WR
    Posted 1/1/17 7:15pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd posted three receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown on four targets in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Floyd was picked up after being jettisoned by the Arizona Cardinals for off-field issues. He has a chance to make an impact in the postseason, and could be a solid WR4 in playoff fantasy leagues.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 1/1/17 7:14pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 14 times for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Blount posted at least one touchdown run in each of the past five games, and 10 of the past 12 games. He led the NFL with 18 rushing scores, and went over 1,000 yards for the first time in his NFL career. He will be a popular pick in postseason fantasy leagues, too.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 1/1/17 7:14pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 25 of his 33 pass attempts for 276 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins. Brady increased his career passing yardage to 61,582, passing former Dolphins great Dan Marino for fourth on the NFL's career list.

    Huddle Up: Brady was on mission this season, returning from a four-game suspension to throw for 3,554 yards, 28 touchdowns and just two interceptions in 12 starts. Not only is he a favorite for NFL MVP honors, but he was a fantasy MVP as well.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 12/31/16 10:32am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is expected to play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 17 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has been able to record two touchdowns in his last three games but has not posted great receiving yards over the last month. He probably should still be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 12/31/16 10:11am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (thigh) is expected to play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 17 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.

    Huddle Up: Brady has been held to under 220 yards in each of the last two games but has six touchdowns and one interception in the last three games. He has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season and should be aa starting candidate in all fantasy leagues.

  • Malcolm Mitchell - WR
    Posted 12/31/16 6:01pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) has been downgraded to out and won't play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: With Mitchell sidelined, it is a lot easier to roll the dice on Chris Hogan as a high-upside WR3.
