Patriots' Chase Winovich: Paces team with 5.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich finished the 2020 season with 49 tackles, one interception and a team-high 5.5 sacks in 16 games.

Per ESPN's Mike Reiss, though the 2019 third-rounder was active for every game this past season, he logged just 59 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps, with Tashawn Bower getting his share of work on early downs. Winovich's fantasy upside in 2021 is therefore tied to seeing more three-down work, something coach Bill Belichick has suggested the Michigan product can handle.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Notches Week 12 sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich collected five tackles, including one sack, during Sunday's 20-17 win against Arizona.

Winovich helped snuff out a Cardinals drive by virtue of his sack at the 11:02 mark of the second quarter, with Arizona being forced to punt two plays later. The Michigan product generated an impressive 2.5 sacks over the first quarter of the regular season, but he found himself in the midst of a six-game sack drought entering Sunday's contest. Having fielded 80-plus percent of the defensive workload in each of New England's past three games, Winovich is playing an integral defensive role heading into a Week 13 matchup against the Chargers.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Another sack Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich recorded four tackles (two solo) and a sack across 37 defensive snaps in Monday's loss to the Chiefs.

The second-year linebacker now has 2.5 sacks over the past three games, which leads the team. He's also played in 66 percent of the defensive snaps so far this season, a notable upgrade from his 28 percent average in 2019.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Records six stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich made six tackles -- one for a loss -- in Sunday's 21-11 win over the Dolphins.

Winovich split reps with Shilique Calhoun and logged 42 of 61 defensive snaps (68 percent), but it was Winovich who was most productive. The second-year linebacker finished second in tackles and recorded a QB hit as well. His IDP outlook is a little shaky without a full workload, but he's a proven pass rusher with 5.5 sacks in his rookie season. He'll set his sights on Russell Wilson, who was sacked three times Sunday, for a Week 2 matchup.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Ready to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich (shoulder) is active for the team's Week 1 contest against the Dolphins.

Winovich practiced in full both Thursday and Friday, so was trending in a positive direction to be available Sunday. That's now official, meaning Winovich will be ready to serve in a rotational role for snaps on the edge.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich (shoulder) is listed as questionable ahead of New England's Week 1 matchup against Miami, Mike Reiss of reports.

Winovich practiced fully Friday, his second consecutive day without limitation. Still, he's deemed questionable ahead of the Patriots' opening contest. If he is able to suit up, Winovich should serve in a rotational role along the defensive line.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich (shoulder) was a full participant for Thursday's practice, Zack Cox of reports.

After he was limited in practice Wednesday, Winovich upgraded his status, corroborating his clear readiness for Week 1 action. The Michigan product also dealt with sports hernia surgery in the offseason that forced him to miss some practice time, so the team might ease him into action. Winovich is expected to handle a rotational role for the team again in 2020.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich said Wednesday that he is fully cleared from offseason sports hernia surgery, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports.

Winovich underwent the surgery May 7, so the fact that he's feeling fully healthy is a positive sign for the likelihood he suits up in Week 1. The Michigan product is looking to take a step forward in year two after he played a rotational role in 2019, compiling 26 total tackles and 5.5 sacks across 16 games.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Recovering from offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich is recovering from offseason sports hernia surgery, Ryan Hannable of WEEI Radio reports.

An official timetable for Winovich's recovery remains undisclosed, but there's not yet any reason to suspect that his availability for Week 1 is in any danger. He played a rotational role in New England's linebacker corps as a rookie, compiling 26 total tackles and 5.5 sacks across 16 games.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Scores on blocked punt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich recovered a blocked punt for a touchdown in Thursday's win over the Patriots.

Winovich played only 14 defensive snaps but found himself in the right place at the right time to recover the blocked punt late in the first quarter. The 24-year-old started the season working in a rotational role on the defensive line, but he's played only 52 defensive snaps over the last four games.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Another sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich recorded one sack across eight defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bills.

Winovich has seen his defensive snaps drop every game so far this season but he has still managed to notch three sacks -- which is second most on the team. Given his drop in reps, it remains to be seen how the Patriots will utilize the rookie as they head into the second quarter of the season.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Active pass rusher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich recorded 1.5 sacks in Sunday's blowout win over the Dolphins.

Despite the blowout, Winovich only played 26 of 62 defensive snaps (42 percent). The rookie third-round pick was effective in the limited snap count, but he's still listed behind Deatrich Wise and Michael Bennett on the depth chart. Consequently, this type of production will likely be rare for Winovich.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Healthy for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winovich participated in OTAs on Thursday, Andrew Callahan of reports.

Winovich was selected by New England in the third round of the draft after undergoing thumb surgery in March. The Michigan product brings speed off the edge -- he clocked in a 4.59 40-yard dash at the combine -- as well as a solid motor to the Patriots' pass rush. Winovich racked up 59 tackles (33 solo) and five sacks in his senior year for the Wolverines.

Patriots' Chase Winovich: Joins Super Bowl champs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots selected Winovich (thumb) in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 77th overall.

The Michigan product brings speed off the edge for New England, having clocked in at 4.59 seconds in the 40-yard dash. One critique on Winovich is that he is over-reliant on that speed and lacks functional power to work through offensive tackles. He checks in at 6-foot-2 3/4 and 256 pounds, making him an undersized edge option in the mold of a Shaun Phillips. Still, Winovich has speed and motor to be an effective pass rusher, even if his frame puts a slight cap on his ceiling.
