Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Shows off hurdle in Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount gained 26 yards on five carries and 16 yards on three receptions (three targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

Even with Tyler Gaffney impressively gaining 35 yards on nine carries, Blount seemingly moved one step closer to locking down the top power back role, with his night highlighted by a hurdle at the end of a 17-yard run. While otherwise quiet on the ground, Blount did come up with a rare contribution through the air, just one week after gashing the Bears for 69 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. If Blount is confirmed to have won the role, Gaffney and D.J. Foster will compete for one roster spot, offering very different skill sets at the running back position.

Patriots' Tyler Gaffney: Mixes in with starters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaffney gained 35 yards on nine carries in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

Perhaps more important than the stat line, Gaffney split first-team work with LeGarrette Blount, who gained 26 yards on five carries and 16 yards on three receptions. Both running back looked pretty good, with Blount ripping off one of his trademark hurdles on a 17-yard run. Despite his strong push, Gaffney probably hasn't done enough to supplant the more-experienced Blount as New England's top power back, with the latter also enjoying a strong preseason. Gaffney does seemingly still have a good shot to earn a roster spot, though it's possible the Patriots could go with pass-catching specialist D.J. Foster instead.

Patriots' D.J. Foster: Impresses in first appearance
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Foster gained nine yards on two carries and 33 yards on three receptions (three targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Patriots.

An undrafted rookie, Foster finally got a chance to make his case for a roster spot after missing the first two preseason games with a hamstring injury that had been bothering him since June. Known for his receiving prowess, Foster could win a role as the No. 2 passing-down back behind James White, as Dion Lewis (knee) is expected to miss at least the first few weeks of the season. If nothing else, Friday's performance improved Foster's argument for a spot on the practice squad.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Kept quiet in preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Edelman (foot) caught one pass for six yards on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

Making his first appearance of the preseason, Edelman played limited snaps with the first-team offense, taking a backseat to Chris Hogan. Edelman's uneventful night consisted of three short targets, with the last of those going for a six-yard gain from Tom Brady (suspension) midway through the second quarter. Edelman is unlikely to play in the final preseason game, as Friday's showing seemingly proved that he's healthy enough for Week 1. He should be ready for a much larger workload once the games count, though he won't get to work with Brady until Week 5.

Patriots' Chris Hogan: Shines against Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hogan caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

Used all over the formation and on a variety of routes, Hogan was heavily targeted by Jimmy Garoppolo early in the game, then caught a 33-yard touchdown from Tom Brady later on. Hogan also impressed in his other appearance this preseason, catching four passes for 53 yards on five targets last week against the Bears. Although the exact nature of his role remains unclear, Hogan has a real shot to emerge as the No. 3 option in New England's passing game, behind only Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola (ankle/knee). Aaron Dobson also impressed in Friday's game, but Hogan is still the clear favorite to start across from Edelman on the outside, with the potential to work from the slot in three-wide sets.
