• Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 3:33pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been getting eased into the fold with his new club, as he's typically been limited in practice. In other words, he's fine for the upcoming Week 7 road matchup against the Bears and will carry WR3 value.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/18/18 3:30pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's the same issue he's been dealing with recently, which shouldn't hold him back from playing in Week 7. As a result, you can continue to count on him as a solid RB2.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/18/18 3:48pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It appears New England is just managing Gronk's reps, meaning he's in no danger of missing Week 7. As always, he'll be a TE1 when his Patriots travel to Chicago.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 3:46pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Edelman had managed to maintain perfect health since his season debut up until now. However, it could also be the team managing the veteran wide-out's reps. Either way, owners should definitely check up on his status throughout the weekend. He's a quality WR2 if he suits up.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/18/18 8:10pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he isn't frustrated by his lack of targets in the red zone this year, and he's 'totally satisfied' as long as the team wins.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski only has one touchdown this year, but he has had at least 75 receiving yards in three of the six games and is on pace to top 1,000 yards. The touchdowns will likely come sooner rather than later, but Gronkowski is a TE1 on his yardage alone.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/17/18 3:27pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Michel appears to be the main option in the running game and has rushed for at least 95 yards in each of the last three games. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues this week.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/17/18 3:34pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was targeted nine times in the last game and appears to be on track for a bigger role in the passing game. He can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues with the chance to be more valuable as the season goes on.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/17/18 3:57pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski is playing better after a few quiet weeks but still has only one touchdown this season. He should be considered a No. 1 tight end every week as long as he is healthy.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/16/18 8:29am ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon's role is expanding weekly, according to head coach Bill Belichick.

    Huddle Up: His targets continue to double each week. He had two, four and nine in his three games with the Pats. Gordon could start providing high-end WR2 value - even against a tough Chicago Bears matchup this week.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/14/18 6:38am ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been targeted 14 times in the last two games and should still be viewed as a TE1 in all fantasy formats despite reaching the end zone just once so far this season.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 6:49am ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gordon had been a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He's worthy of consideration as a flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 7:25am ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 6's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Michel was listed as questionable on the injury report and had been a limited practice participant throughout the week. He should be viewed as a very risky fantasy play due to the fact that the Patriots don't play until Sunday night in Week 6, meaning that if he is deactivated it would be difficult to replace him in fantasy lineups.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 9:14pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel ran 24 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Michel has been more steady than explosive thus far into his rookie campaign, but his heavy usage with Rex Burkhead sidelined has vaulted him into low-end RB1 territory even though he hasn't seen much work in the passing game. He will have his toughest test to date next week in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears, but the New England offense should give him enough high-leverage opportunities to produce at a high-end RB2 level in that matchup.

  • Tom Brady - QB
    Posted 10/14/18 9:32pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady went 24-of-35 for 340 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He added three carries for two yards and another score but committed a fumble.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots leaned on the ground game early before the game entered shootout mode in the second half. His TD throw went for 17 yards to Julian Edelman, but it was his 4-yard scoring run up the middle that created the biggest stir, as Kansas City's Breeland Speaks let go of Brady in the pocket - fearing a roughing the passer penalty - and the 41-year-old took advantage. With all of his weapons healthy and getting more comfortable, Brady should perform at an elite QB1 level going forward.

  • James White - RB
    Posted 10/14/18 10:07pm ET

    New England Patriots RB James White ran for 39 yards on six carries and added 53 yards on five receptions (seven targets) in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: It's a bit surprising given the shootout nature of this game that White didn't find the end zone for the fourth straight game, but he was due for some regression after entering Week 6 on pace for 102 catches, 864 receiving yards and 16 total touchdowns. This kind of production is about what owners should expect moving forward. He is a favorite of Tom Brady, however, so he will remain a key part of the offense. White should be considered a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/14/18 10:44pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski caught three of his four targets for 97 yards in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski was stuck on one reception for 16 yards until deep in the fourth quarter until he hauled in a 42-yarder on the team's second-to-last drive and a 39-yarder with less than a minute remaining to put the Patriots in position for the game-winning field goal. While he has not exactly been his dominant self for fantasy purposes, owners should find some solace defenses are often selling out to stop him. Gronkowski's big game should be coming soon, perhaps as early as Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 11:22pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon caught five of his season-high (and team-high) nine targets for 42 yards in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gordon hurt his shoulder in the first half but was cleared to return. The most targets the former Cleveland Browns had seen with his new team prior to this game was four, so owners should be encouraged by this performance despite the relative moderate production. If this is the kind of activity New England has in mind for Gordon going forward, he'll be in the WR2 discussion before long. Owners should probably give him one more week on the bench in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears just to be safe.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 11:36pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught all four of his targets for 78 yards in Week 6 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Hogan did the bulk of his damage on a 45-yard catch in the fourth quarter. The former lacrosse player has been one of the bigger early-round disappointments in fantasy this season, as he set season highs in catches and yardage with this effort. Playing time hasn't been an issue either; his 315 snaps through five weeks was the ninth-highest total among receivers entering this week. Hogan should be considered no more than a bench stash in most leagues.

  • Julian Edelman - WR
    Posted 10/14/18 11:47pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman turned seven targets into four catches for 54 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Edelman posted 54 yards on seven receptions in his season debut last week. Given the influx of weapons in New England and Tom Brady's heavier reliance on James White as an option in the short passing game, the catch and yardage totals are probably the types of performances owners can expect from Edelman going forward. He'll be a serviceable WR3 in PPR leagues again in Week 7 versus the Chicago Bears.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/12/18 9:33am ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was back at practice Friday, Oct. 12, after missing the team's previous practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Hogan can probably be dropped in most leagues. While he has seen over 90 percent of the team's snaps so far, he has no more than three catches for 34 yards in any game this season.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/12/18 3:19pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) is expected to be cleared to play in the Week 6 game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hogan has not been a big factor in the passing game so far this season, so his role for Week 6 is uncertain. Owners may want to look for other options to use and can avoid Hogan.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/11/18 9:41am ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was a limited participant in the team's non-padded walkthrough Thursday, Oct. 11, and was seen riding a stationary bike during warmups.

    Huddle Up: Michel has averaged a healthy 19.7 touches over the last three games, but a knee issue kept him out of the preseason and Week 1 so this is definitely something to keep an eye on heading into Week 6.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/11/18 4:05pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Gordon should be able to play this week despite the injury and had a decent outing last week. He can be at least a flex option for owners in most leagues.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/11/18 4:04pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Hogan will be able to play in Week 6. He has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and has not caught more than three passes in any game. He would be a flex option in some deeper leagues if he plays but could also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/11/18 4:09pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was limited practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Gronkowski has caught only one touchdown so far this season but has been targeted 14 times in the last two games. He should still be considered a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues despite his quiet start to the season.

  • Rob Gronkowski - TE
    Posted 10/10/18 3:07pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was able to take part in practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Gronk has been battling a nagging injury for a few weeks, but he has been able to play through. He has a four-game streak without a touchdown, but he has four or more grabs in each of his past three games. Despite the fact he hasn't been producing his usual big-time stats, he remains an obvious must-start at a very shallow position in fantasy football.

  • Josh Gordon - WR
    Posted 10/10/18 3:03pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has been dealing with a nagging hamstring injury since joining the Patriots, and his production has been limited. He posted two grabs for 50 yards and a score in Week 5 against the Colts, so he is slowly showing signs of grasping the playbook. However, for now he remains more of a WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/10/18 3:13pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Michel started out a little bit slowly, but he has exploded over the past two games with 43 rushes, 210 yards and a touchdown in each outing. He has quickly emerged as a RB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 6.

  • Chris Hogan - WR
    Posted 10/10/18 3:10pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was listed as a limited basis on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Hogan has been limited to 11 grabs for 143 yards through give games, and nearly all of his production came in Week 2 against the Jaguars when he posting three grabs, 42 yards and each of his two touchdowns on the season. He is worth using as a low-end WR5 at best right now.

  • Sony Michel - RB
    Posted 10/6/18 11:20pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel has 17 carries inside the red zone through the first four games of his career, good for the third-highest total in the league.

    Huddle Up: While Michel theoretically has a one-game edge on most of the field because the Patriots have already played a fifth game, the rookie missed the season opener. With Rex Burkhead out indefinitely, Michel is the clear power back in New England's offense. His red zone usage is really picked up in Burkhead's absence with 12 carries in the last two games alone. Even with limited work in the passing game, Michel has quickly emerged as a RB2 option so long as his current role remains the same.
