    Most leagues feature 10 or 12 owners, but not all of those owners know what to do with their late-round picks. Dave Richard has uncovered some sweet sleepers to help round out your roster (even if you've already drafted).

    08/23/16DLJabaal SheardKneeQUESTIONABLESheard (knee) participated in individual drills for the first time since spraining his MCL, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

    Sheard's injury occurred during the Patriots' preseason opener against the Saints. While he didn't participate fully, his return is an encouraging sign that the defensive end is nearing a return. He'll be expected to slide into the starting lineup once fully healthy.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/16/16TEClay HarborUndisclosedPROBABLEHarbor was "shaken up" during Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.

    With Rob Gronkowski missing practice Tuesday and Bryce Williams still sidelined, Harbor's unspecified injury further taxes the Patriots' short-term depth at tight end. The team's current healthy options at the position are Martellus Bennett, AJ Derby, Bear Pascoe and Steven Scheu.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/16/16TEBryce WilliamsUndisclosedPROBABLEWilliams has missed several days of practice with an undisclosed injury.

    Clearly behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the Patriots' tight end depth chart, Williams is competing for depth slotting at the position along with Clay Harbor, A.J. Derby, Steven Scheu and Bear Pascoe.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/15/16WRMalcolm MitchellElbowQUESTIONABLEWhen asked Sunday for a timetable for his return to full action, Mitchell -- who dislocated his left elbow on Aug. 11 -- said he didn't "have an answer for that," CSN New England reports.

    On the plus side, Mitchell -- who has returned to the practice field in a limited capacity -- while sporting a large brace around his elbow, noted Sunday that he's "feeling good...feeling a lot better than the day it happened." Once he's able to play without restrictions, Mitchell could emerge as a candidate to claim the Patriots' "X" receiver role, but for now his early-season fantasy upside is somewhat stalled by his elbow issue. Beyond that, it may take some in-season injuries for Mitchell to merit lineup consideration, given that there are plenty of other options in the Patriots' passing attack, namely fellow wideouts Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan (and Danny Amendola to a lesser degree), as well as the team's talented tight end combo of Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/09/16DLRob NinkovichTricepsDOUBTFULNinkovich, who tore his triceps on Aug. 9, was present at the start of Sunday's practice before moving on to the Patriots' lower field to do conditioning work, ESPN.com reports.

    Initial Boston Herald reports suggested that Ninkovich's return would be a matter of "weeks, not months." While it's unclear when the defensive end might be able to practice fully, his presence on the field Sunday, in any capacity, is a positive sign nonetheless.

    07/29/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDBrady (suspension) completed three of nine passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Jimmy Garoppolo started and played the first three drives, before giving way to Brady for the next four series. Brady made a few beautiful throws, including a 33-yard touchdown to Chris Hogan, but he also got quite lucky on an easy dropped interception. Brady is unlikely to play in the Patriots' final exhibition, which means his next game action will come Week 5 in Cleveland, after he serves a four-game suspension.

    06/09/16TEMichael WilliamsKneeOUTWilliams tore his left ACL during Wednesday's practice and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.

    As expected, Williams' injury was a serious one as he was seen on crutches Thursday awaiting the unfortunate results. This ensures Clay Harbor's spot as the No. 3 option at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett heading into the 2016 season, as Williams enters a long road to recovery.

    02/06/16DBMalcolm ButlerKneePROBABLEButler missed the Pro Bowl due to a sprained knee, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. "There was a play on third down [in the AFC championship game] when I made a tackle or something like that and bent my knee back," Butler said Friday in San Francisco. "It swelled up pretty bad. I didn't feel it during the game because of all the adrenaline pumping. When we got back, it swelled up pretty bad, and the team just decided it was a good thing to sit me out."

    Butler became instantly famous with his game-winning interception of Russell Wilson in last year's Super Bowl, and the loss of Darrelle Revis in free agency elevated him to the Patriots' No. 1 cornerback. The pseudo promotion worked wonders, as Butler notched 67 tackles (56 solo), 15 passes defended, and two interceptions while regularly drawing the opponent's top wide receiver over the course of his second campaign. While his recovery effort won't include surgery, rest and regular icing sessions have been his regimen to date.

    11/04/15RBTrey WattsSuspensionSUSPENDWatts was signed by the Rams on Friday, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.

    Watts was promoted from the practice squad, suggesting that Tre Mason (ankle) is unlikely to play. Even if he's active, Watts won't necessarily get any touches.
