Patriots' Josh Gordon: Officially joins New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (hamstring) has officially been traded to the New England Patriots, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

New England's trade of a fifth-round pick to the Browns in exchange for Gordon, announced Monday, is now official. If Gordon isn't active for 10 games, the Patriots would receive a late-round pick back from the Browns. The wideout played 69 of 89 offensive snaps with Cleveland in Week 1, logging a 17-yard touchdown, but an incident during a photo shoot led to the Browns trading the 27-year-old. It's also notable that Gordon's hamstring injury, which kept him sidelined in Week 2, reportedly does not seem to be a cause for concern. With Julian Edelman (suspension) still out for two more games, Gordon has the talent to immediately bolster a depleted Patriots receiving group if he can learn his new team's offensive scheme and earn the trust of quarterback Tom Brady.

Patriots' Deatrich Wise: Spotted wearing splint Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wise was spotted with a splint on his middle finger following Monday's team meeting, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Wise injured his middle finger during Sunday's loss to Jacksonville but the Patriots shockingly haven't released much information beyond what was seen. Finger injuries are not typically associated with prolonged absences so it's likely Wise won't miss much time, if any.

Patriots' Josh Gordon: Hamstring issue not a concern
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

An MRI on Gordon's hamstring "came out fine," according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

We'll have to see if the Patriots' newly-acquired wideout is able to practice fully Wednesday, but Rapoport suggests that Gordon could suit up for his new team as soon as Sunday against the Lions. With Julian Edelman (suspension) still out for two more games, there's a window of short-term opportunity for Gordon to provide some much-needed wideout depth. Moreover, as his comfort level with the New England offense grows, Gordon has the talent to be a nice weapon in the team's offense opposite Chris Hogan, with Edelman slated to capably man the slot upon his return to action.

Patriots' Josh Gordon: Traded to New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots will send a fifth-round draft pick to the Browns in exchange for Gordon (hamstring), Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per the deal, if Gordon isn't active for 10 games, Patriots would get a late-round draft choice back from the Browns. While Gordon carries a high-risk, high-reward label thanks to his off-field/suspension history, the upside he carries is just as obvious. The Patriots are as good a fit as any for Gordon, given the team's current lack of depth at wideout and the fact that he'll be catching passes from a quality QB in Tom Brady. It's hard to predict when Gordon might make an impact with his new team, given that he's dealing with a hamstring issue and must learn a new playbook. Once he's up to speed with the New England offense, however, he'll be an intriguing fantasy lineup option.

Patriots' Jacob Hollister: Catches three passes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hollister caught all three of his targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Jaguars.

Meanwhile, Rob Gronkowski hauled in two of his four targets for just 15 yards. Though Hollister outproduced Gronkowski in Week 2, as the Jaguars focused on containing the Patriots' top tight end, it must be noted that Hollister was on the field for just 14 snaps (out of a possible 61) compared to Gronkowski's 58 snaps. While it's tough to count on a steady level of production from Hollister, he's a name to have filed away in the event of a Gronkowski injury.
