  • Patriots' Patrick Chung: Makes five tackles

    Chung tallied five tackles during Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

    Chung -- who's worn a shoulder stabilizer in each of the past two games, according to Zack Cox of NESN.com -- doesn't seem to be playing at 100 percent health. To make matters worse, the safety appeared to aggravate the injury while making a tackle in the fourth quarter. It seems likely that Chung will resurface on this week's injury report ahead of New England's Week 16 matchup with Buffalo.

  • Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski: Logs four points Sunday

    Gostkowski made his only field-goal attempt in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers, en route to logging four points.

    The four points tie Gostkowski's season-low output from Weeks 3 and 10, but he's generally a pretty steady fantasy option while kicking behind the New England offense.

  • Patriots' Dwayne Allen: Limited action in return

    Allen was on the field for three of the Patriots' 62 snaps on offense in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers.

    Allen's return from a knee injury bolsters the team's tight end depth, but as long as Rob Gronkowski remains healthy, there's not much left for Allen to do in the Patriots' passing game. He was not targeted Sunday.

  • Patriots' Phillip Dorsett: Sees just two snaps Sunday

    Dorsett was on the field for two of the Patriots' 62 snaps on offense in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers.

    Dorsett has now gone three straight games without a target, and he'll remain off the fantasy radar until injuries hit the likes of Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Chris Hogan.

  • Patriots' James Develin: Catches two passes against Pittsburgh

    Develin caught both of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers.

    With that, Develin's improbable TD run comes to a halt. It's still possible that the Patriots' fullback will get some goal-line carries in the coming weeks, but when that doesn't happen, he doesn't see enough volume in other situations to make up for it.

  • Patriots' Cordarrelle Patterson: Catches three passes Week 15

    Patterson caught all three of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers.

    Patterson did not record a carry for the second straight week, and his backfield involvement figures to be minimal going forward, with the return to health of both Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead. Patterson's versatility and ability as a returner are assets to the Patriots, but his fantasy upside is hampered by a lack of reliable volume.

  • Patriots' Chris Hogan: Hauls in long TD

    Hogan caught two of his three targets for 68 yards -- including a 63-yard TD -- in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers.

    As has been the case of late, Hogan -- who was on the field for 39 of 62 plays on offense Sunday -- was out-snapped by fellow receivers Julian Edelman (58) and Josh Gordon (57). Hogan's fantasy stat line Week 15 was salvaged by his big play, but it'll be tough to count on those arriving on a weekly basis, given that New England QB Tom Brady has so many options in the passing game.
