• Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 12/9/16 6:26am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, ankle) admitted that he's not 100 percent as he grinds through ankle and shoulder ailments.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has been an afterthought with six catches for 40 yards in the last three games combined. He could break out any week, though. The Baltimore Ravens pose a midrange matchup for Bennett Monday night, and he's a low-end TE1 option.

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 9.

    Huddle Up: Bennett will be able to play against the Baltimore Ravens and will continue to be the starter at the position. He has struggled over the last three weeks and could be benched this week if owners have better options to use in their lineups.

    Posted 12/8/16 10:53am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has been held to only 40 yards combined in the last three games and has gone seven games without a touchdown. He will continue to be the team's No. 1 tight end with Rob Gronkowski out, but owners may want to consider using other options and keeping Bennett on the bench.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 12/7/16 3:56pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is facing the NFL's No. 1 ranked defense in the Baltimore Ravens this week. He has fared well against elite defenses in his career, however, amassing a 6-0 record with 12 touchdowns and just three interceptions in home games versus No. 1 defenses.

    Huddle Up: Brady is a matchup-proof quarterback as has been evidenced throughout his career. He can spread the ball around to anyone and doesn't need Rob Gronkowski in order to be an elite fantasy quarterback. Start him as you normally would despite the difficult matchup.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 12/4/16 7:22am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) is expected to start Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Brady was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a must-start option in all fantasy leagues, even with TE Rob Gronkowski out for the remainder of the season.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 7:15am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) will play in Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report due to a lingering foot injury. Despite this, he is expected to see a decent number of targets this afternoon and should be viewed as a low-end WR1 option in all fantasy formats.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 12/4/16 7:12am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) will play in Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Bennett was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. With Rob Gronkowski sidelined for the remainder of the season, Bennett should see an increased number of targets going forward and should be viewed as a TE1 despite several recent disappointing performances.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 8:14am ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (back) is active for Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Hogan was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been able to play through this injury for a while, so fantasy owners should have no reservations about using him as a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 12/4/16 8:10am ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) will start Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Brady was a limited participant in practice during the week but there was little doubt he would be ready for this game. He should be viewed as an elite QB1 option, with 18 touchdowns and just one interception in 256 passing attempts over seven games this season.

  • Danny Amendola - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 12:28pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the second half Sunday, Dec. 4, against the Los Angeles Rams. He is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Amendola owners may want to hold their breath a bit. This is the second big injury of the week behind Rob Gronkowski, but Amendola may be week-to-week. He has 20 catches, 213 yards and four touchdowns to date in 2016. If you are looking for Amendola insurance, WRs Chris Hogan or Malcolm Mitchell may see more touches if Amendola can't go.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 12/4/16 4:17pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett managed just two catches for four yards on four targets in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners were expecting a lot more for Bennett, especially with Rob Gronkowski done for the season. Bennett has been the ultimate boom or bust fantasy play lately, posting big stats or very little production at all.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 4:16pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan posted four receptions for 23 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: Hogan has a total of four catches in three of his past four outings, and he has at least 70 or more receiving yards in two of the games. However, his production has been rather erratic and he is only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Malcolm Mitchell - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 4:16pm ET

    New England Patriots rookie WR Malcolm Mitchell posted eight grabs for 82 yards in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted 10 times.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell has rolled up 17 receptions for 222 yards and three scores over the past three outings, emerging as a viable WR3 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 4:15pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) pulled down eight receptions for 101 yards in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted a game-high 12 times.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was on the injury report again due to his foot injury, but he shined in this game as the top receiving option. He remains a solid low-end WR2 in all PPR formats and a WR3 in all other leagues in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB
    Posted 12/4/16 4:15pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was not targeted in the pass game.

    Huddle Up: Blount snapped a mini-scoring skid, as he hadn't found the end zone in either of his past two games. It was the first time this season he had back-to-back games without a visit to the end zone. He remains a must-start fantasy option in Week 14 despite facing the Baltimore Ravens and their lockdown rushing defense.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 12/4/16 4:14pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 33 of his 46 pass attempts for 269 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. With the win, he became the winningest quarterback in NFL history with 201 victories. 'It's always been about winning, and I've been very fortunate to be on a lot of great teams,' Brady said. 'I'm really grateful.'

    Huddle Up: Brady had a solid completion percentage, but his yardage and mere one score left fantasy owners wonting for more. The loss of Rob Gronkowski for the season is certainly not good news for Brady and his fantasy owners.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 12/3/16 1:28pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured Reserve list Saturday, Dec. 3, according to source. The team also re-signed free-agent RB D.J. Foster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski will miss the rest of the season, so he can be dropped in all leagues. Martellus Bennett will serve as the Patriots' No. 1 tight end and should be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

  • Malcolm Mitchell - WR
    Posted 12/3/16 7:59pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell has been catching everything in practice and is learning how to beat press coverage, according to CB Eric Rowe.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell has nine catches and three scores in the last two games, and he should be scooped up off waivers where available in case his role in the offense continues to grow.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 12/2/16 1:50pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) has been limited in practice each the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 30, but he is fully expected to play in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Brady's fantasy stock takes a hit with Rob Gronkowski out, but the Patriots still have more than enough weapons to keep their quarterback among the elite plays in fantasy most weeks, which he should be again this weekend.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 12/2/16 1:56pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is listed As Questionable for Week 13 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Rob Gronkowski's absence would seem to serve as a boost for Bennett's fantasy fortunes, but he may be too injured to take advantage and should be viewed as a TE2. Since his three-touchdown explosion in Week 5, Bennett has scored double-digit fantasy points in PPR only once and failed to find the end zone. Dion Lewis, James White and Malcolm Mitchell appear to be much better bets to see more targets moving forward.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 12/2/16 2:30pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) has been limited in practice each of the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, Nov. 30, but he is fully expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams despite being listed as questionable on the Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: In New England, 'questionable' is the new probable, and that is particularly the case with Edelman. The Patriots' slot receiver is in position to see another increase in targets following the loss of Rob Gronkowski, so if he isn't already in the low-end WR1 discussion in PPR leagues, he should be now.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 12/2/16 2:50pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Bennett likely will be active for the game and should have a bigger role in the passing game with Rob Gronkowski out. Bennett has been quiet over the last few weeks but should be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 12/1/16 10:45am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) suffered a herniated disc during the team's Week 13 game and will need to undergo surgery Friday, Dec. 2, according to a source. There is no timetable for his return.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski likely will miss the rest of the season because of the injury. Fantasy owners will need to find other options to use in their starting lineups and can drop Gronkowski if they need the roster space. Martellus Bennett should have a bigger role in the Patriots' passing game and will be a No. 1 tight end moving forward.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 12/1/16 5:16pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: He'll be fine for Week 13. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, Edelman's already-high stock gets a slight boost, as he may see even more looks than usual. He's definitely a WR1.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 12/1/16 5:14pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Brady missed practice on Wednesday, but this session should ensure he suits up on Sunday versus the Rams. As is always the case, the future Hall-of-Famer will be one of the top QB1 options on the board.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE
    Posted 12/1/16 5:31pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) was limited at practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Bennett missed practice on Wednesday, but this news indicates he'll be good to go for Week 13. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, there will be nothing preventing Bennett from serving as a TE1 on a weekly basis to close out the 2016 season. He should be in all lineups.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 12/1/16 6:52pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is not expected to play again this season, according to a team statement.

    Huddle Up: Grab Martellus Bennett where available. He should be a TE1 the rest of the way.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 11/30/16 11:16am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Edelman probably will return to practice at some point this week and should be able to play in Week 13. He has posted three straight solid games with at least seven catches and at least 77 yards in all three games. Edelman should be a fine No. 2 receiver in a majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 11/30/16 11:13am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, chest) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski suffered a back injury early in the team's Week 12 game and was not able to return, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He may be limited if he is active this week, so owners may want to look at healthier options if Gronkowski does not practice this week.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 11/30/16 11:10am ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Brady is resting his injured knee but should be able to play in Week 13. He has thrown for at least 280 yards in each of his last four games and has six touchdowns in the last two games. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.
