Fantasy Analysis | 1419218258
Patriots' backfield remains an enigma
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

LeGarrette Blount was out for Week 16 at the Jets with a shoulder injury, which meant surely the Patriots would make Jonas Gray their go-to running back. After all, he had a 200-yard, four-touchdown game earlier this season and finally got out of coach Bill Belichick's doghouse with 11 carries for 62 yards last week.

Wrong again.

Gray was the Patriots' only running back to score a touchdown in Week 16, plunging in from 1 yard out in the fourth quarter, but to say he was the go-to back would be disingenuous. He and Shane Vereen tied for the team lead in carries with six, but Brandon Bolden also had five. And Vereen and Bolden were both more productive with their carries, averaging 6.3 yards and 6.4 yards, respectively, than Gray was with his, averaging 0.8 yards.

And then there's the fact that Vereen is far and away the best pass-catcher of the three, but he was hardly involved in the passing game on a quiet day for quarterback Tom Brady.

So basically, you wouldn't have gone right with any of Blount's three replacements, and considering they were all equally involved, you have to wonder how they'll impact Blount's role if he returns Week 17 against Buffalo. Given that it's a tough matchup anyway, you might just want to avoid every Patriots running back.

Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) won't play Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount, who entered Week 16 questionable with a shoulder injury, will not play Sunday against the Jets, the team announced on Saturday. If Blount does in fact sit out, Bill Belichick will likely roll with Jonas Gray and Shane Vereen for the majority of the load.

The Patriots remain a 10 1/2-point favorite on the road against the Jets.

Patriots WR Edelman, RB Blount dealing with injuries
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Two Patriots skill position players have suffered injuries that could affect their playing statuses for the Sunday game against the host Jets.

Wide receiver Julian Edelman was limited in practice Wednesday with a concussion, though it's unclear when it was sustained. He must pass protocol to be cleared for Week 16 action.

Running back LeGarrette Blount, meanwhile, has a hurt shoulder.
