Patriots' Kenny Britt: Hauls in 20 passes in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Britt finished the 2017 regular season with 20 catches on 42 targets for 256 yards and two TDs in 12 games, including nine contests with the Browns and three with the Patriots.

It's been an interesting journey for Britt, who parlayed a strong season with the Rams in 2016 into four-year, $32.5 million free agent contract with the Browns this past offseason. Things never clicked for the 6-foot-3, 223-pound wideout in a Cleveland uniform and he ended up signing a deal with the Patriots (that runs through next season) after being waived by the Browns in December. Set to earn $1,468,750 in 2018, Britt stands to benefit from a full offseason with the Patriots, though he'll still need to climb up a depth chart that will be topped by Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and Julian Edelman (knee) before he re-enters the fantasy conversation.

Patriots' Phillip Dorsett: Catches 12 passes in regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dorsett finished the 2017 regular season with 12 catches on 18 targets for 194 yards in 15 games.

The 2015 first-rounder joined the Patriots in early September via a trade that sent backup QB Jacoby Brissett to the Colts. At the time, it wasn't hard to picture the speedster turning into an occasional deep threat for the team, at a minimum, but he never caught more than three passes in a given game this past season, despite the fact that fellow wideout Chris Hogan missed seven games. Perhaps a full offseason with the team can help Dorsett push for a bigger role in 2018, but that's hardly a lock, with late-season acquisition Kenny Britt under contract next season and Julian Edelman (knee) set to return from injury, bolstering a wideout corps that's also slated to include Hogan, Brandin Cooks and Malcolm Mitchell (knee), health permitting. Moreover, Danny Amendola is eligible for free agency this offseason, but it wouldn't surprise us if he's re-signed by the Patriots. The bottom line is that Dorsett figures to need at least a couple breaks to go his way next season before he hits the fantasy radar.

Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Expected back for AFC title game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead (knee) is expected to be available for Sunday's AFC title game against the Jaguars, a source informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Burkhead was listed as questionable in advance of the Patriots' win over the Titans over the weekend but ultimately sat out after his sprained left knee prevented him from progressing to a full practice leading up to the contest. The running back, who has been sidelined since Dec. 17, should have a better shot at suiting up Sunday, though he'll likely need to increase his workload during practice this week in order to make it a reality. Given that he hasn't played in a month, Burkhead's role in the backfield could be a little more limited than normal upon his return to action.

Patriots' LaAdrian Waddle: Suffers minor knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddle suffered a minor knee sprain during Saturday's win over the Titans and will be re-evaluated again later in the week, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Waddle's status for the upcoming AFC championship game remains up in the air, as the Patriots have not ruled him out at this point.

Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski: Racks up 156 regular-season points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gostkowski made 37 of his 40 field-goal attempts during the 2017 regular season, en route to logging 156 points, which trailed only Greg Zuerlein of the Rams, who recorded 158 points in 14 games.

Gostkowski, whose career high in points is 158 (in 2013), continues to benefit from working behind New England's Tom Brady-helmed offense. The 2006 fourth-rounder, who turns 34 on Jan. 28, is under contract with the Patriots next season and slated to earn a base salary of $3,200,000. Looking ahead to 2018, Gostkowski will continue to profile as one of the league's more reliable fantasy kickers, given his favorable team context.
