Report: Aaron Dobson inactive after 'mouthing off'
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson has been inactive the past two weeks after he "mouthed off" to Josh McDaniels, according to the Boston Globe.

Dobson was thought to be one of the team's main receivers coming into the season, but has found himself inactive the last two weeks. If the report is true, it could explain why the Patriots have been willing to keep one of their more talented wideouts on the bench.

Patriots reinstate Brandon Browner, Brian Tyms
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Patriots reinstated cornerback Brandon Browner and receiver Brian Tyms after they completed their four-game suspensions. They're eligible to play Sunday night against the Bengals, but coach Bill Belichick said he's not sure of their immediate roles.

"Those two players have missed four weeks, four games, but all the practice time as well," Belichick told MassLive.com. "We'll have to see where they are relative to the other players."

The website expects Browner to compete for a starting job opposite Darrelle Revis.

No elixir for Tom Brady's woes
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady realizes there's no quick fix to the team's offensive problems. New England's offensive line is in disarray, the team lacks explosive receivers, and Brady is making a surprising number of poor decisions.

"There’s no magic play, there’s no magic scheme," he told WEEI. "It’s us as players playing a lot better than we’re playing. This hasn’t been an isolated incident. I don’t think offensively we’ve played well all year. I don’t think we’ve played well for a long time. We’ve got to figure out the reasons why we’re not playing as well as we’re capable and try to improve them."

Brady is averaging under 200 passing yards per game and has accounted for more turnovers (5) than touchdowns (4).

Patriots' offensive line in flux
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Patriots started two rookies on the offensive line Monday for the first time since 2005. Cameron Fleming started at right guard and Bryan Stork started at center; both were fourth-round picks.

Dan Connolly started the first three games at center before starting at left guard against the Chiefs. The shuffling continued throughout the blowout loss as New England sought to find a combination that could protect Tom Brady. Left tackle Nate Solder was beaten badly on Tamba Hali's strip-sack in the third quarter, then got benched for Marcus Cannon.

Fantasy Analysis | 1412101001
Which receivers are worth adding this week?
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal has been targeted at least six times in every game so far this season, and his big performance in recent weeks is enough to convince Jamey Eisenberg to put him at the top of his waiver-wire priority list ahead of week five.

Additionally, Jamey tabs Brian Quick of the Rams, Rueben Randle of the Giants, Malcom Floyd of the Chargers and Andrew Hawkins of the Browns rounds out the top five at wide receiver, with Odell Beckham of the Giants, Davante Adams of the Packers and Brandon LaFell of the Patriots possible sleepers.

If you need to clear a spot on your roster for any moves this week, consider parting ways with Kendall Wright, Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Riley Cooper
