Moncrief logged 13 snaps -- all on special teams -- Sunday in the Patriots' 28-14 win over the Jets. Despite the Patriots' dearth of promising options at receiver, Moncrief never garnered much of a look on offense. Over his six appearances, Moncrief recorded one reception for 15 yards on two targets and carried once for four yards. Moncrief flashed some ability as a kick returner with 165 yards on seven returns, but he may not have made enough of an impression to earn a spot with the Patriots heading into 2021.
Moncrief (thigh) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jets. Moncrief didn't play an offensive snap in last week's loss to the Bills. He could handle a similar role in Week 17, but he'll still serve as the team's primary kick returner.
Moncrief (thigh) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets after practicing in a limited capacity Friday. Moncrief's thigh issue dates back to New England's Week 14 Thursday night loss to the Rams. He was held out the subsequent game against Miami but proved capable of returning to the lineup for Monday night's 38-9 blowout loss to Buffalo, collecting 74 yards on four kickoff returns during the contest. Kyle Dugger and J.J. Taylor would be slated for increased opportunities on returns were Moncrief to miss the season finale.
Moncrief (thigh) was a partial participant at Wednesday's practice, Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston reports. Moncrief has been dealing with a thigh issue for a few weeks. The injury held him out of the Patriots Week 15 game, but he ultimately played through it in last week's loss to the Bills. His status will once again need to be watched as the week progresses.
Moncrief logged 17 special team's snaps in Monday night's 38-9 loss to the Bills. In the process, Moncrief, who didn't see any snaps on offense Monday, returned four kicks for 74 yards. As the team's Week 17 season finale against the Jets approaches, Moncrief remains well off the fantasy radar.
