  • Patriots' Devin McCourty: Snares INT

    McCourty posted five tackles (four solo), a pass breakup and an interception in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets.

    McCourty was one of three Patriots players to intercept a Zach Wilson pass in Week 2. He's now up to 12 tackles through two games. The 2010 first-round pick has never topped 97 stops in a season.

  • Patriots' Josh Uche: Tallies two sacks

    Uche posted three solo tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets.

    Uche has now posted four solo tackles and three sacks through the first two games of the year. Listed as a linebacker, fantasy managers can't count on Uche for IDP purposes until his tackle numbers improve, but his pass-rushing skills are an encouraging development.

  • Patriots' Dont'a Hightower: Notches six tackles

    Hightower recorded six tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets.

    The 2012 first-round pick opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19, but he's starting at middle linebacker once again. Hightower has tallied 10 tackles through the first two games of the year. In 2019, he posted 71 tackles through 15 games.

  • Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Impressive in win

    Bentley posted nine tackles (seven solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets.

    Kyle Van Noy (neck) sat out of Sunday's game, so Bentley started and led the team in tackles. As long as Van Noy is out of the lineup, Bentley should have significant IDP upside, but he'll be tough to rely on otherwise.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Signs with New England

    The Patriots signed Folk from their practice squad to their active roster Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Folk was promoted to the Patriots' active roster before each of the first two games this season. With Quinn Nordin (abdomen) still on IR, and the veteran Folk having made 33 consecutive field-goal attempts, the move to sign the 36-year-old to the active roster was an obvious choice.

  • Patriots' Nick Folk: Makes four FGs in Week 2

    Folk made all four of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets, en route to recording 13 points.

    Two games into the season, Folk -- who has made a team-record 33 straight FG attempts -- has notched 23 points. With fellow kicker Quinn Nordin (abdomen) on IR, the veteran kicker will retain his lead role in the coming weeks, even if that entails more roster shuffling leading up to this coming Sunday's contest against the Saints.

  • Patriots' Kendrick Bourne: Two catches in Week 2

    Bourne caught two of his three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets.

    Bourne, who was out there for 31 of the team's 58 snaps on offense, was once again out-snapped by fellow WRs Jakobi Meyers (52) and Nelson Agholor (50), en route to his second straight three-target contest. Down the road, there will be games where Bourne is more involved in the team's passing game, but for now he profiles as a complementary option in an offense that spreads the ball around.

  • Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Catches four passes Sunday

    Meyers caught four of his six targets for 38 yards during Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets.

    Per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, Meyers was on the field for 52 of a possible 58 snaps on offense in the contest, while Nelson Agholor logged 50 snaps, and Kendrick Bourne was out there for 31 plays. Look for Meyers' playing time to remain steady going forward, and though he operates in an offense that spreads the ball around, as the Patriots' early leader in targets (15) through two games, Meyers (who has 10 catches in that span) does possess some utility in PPR formats.

  • Patriots' Nelson Agholor: Logs 50 snaps versus Jets

    Agholor was on the field for 50 of a possible 58 snaps on offense in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. In the process, the wideout caught all three of his targets for 21 yards.

    Meanwhile, Jakobi Meyers logged 52 snaps and six targets, and Kendrick Bourne was out there for 31 plays and was targeted three times. With RB James White and TEs Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry also commanding regular targets, Agholor's weekly volume figures to fluctuate in an offense that tends to spread the ball around to multiple targets. That said, it's pretty clear that Agholor is destined for steady playing time this season, health permitting.

  • Patriots' Hunter Henry: Catches two passes in Week 2

    Henry logged 47 of a possible 58 snaps on offense in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets en route to catching two of his four targets for 42 yards, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Meanwhile, fellow tight end Jonnu Smith was on the field for 29 snaps and hauled in four of his five targets for 28 yards. In Week 1, Henry (54 snaps) and Smith (55 snaps) saw virtually identical workloads, but it's possible that Smith's decrease in action versus the Jets was related to the hip issue that had him listed as questionable for the contest. In any case, as long as a timeshare is in play, the duo of Henry and Smith will continue to cap each other's weekly fantasy ceiling.
