Patriots' Cordarrelle Patterson: Hauls in four passes Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patterson caught four of his seven targets for 51 yards and a TD in Thursday's 37-20 preseason win over the Eagles.

Patterson is expected to make his mark as a kick returner for the Patriots this year, but with Julian Edelman set to serve a four-game suspension to start the regular season, there will be a target void to fill out of the gate. Chris Hogan is locked in as a starting wideout for the team, but Patterson, Phillip Dorsett, Eric Decker and Kenny Britt (hamstring) -- when healthy -- are all candidates to see added opportunities in Edelman's absence.

Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Logs five completions Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyer completed 5-of-13 passes for 32 yards and a TD in Thursday's 37-20 preseason win over the Eagles.

To date, seventh-round rookie Danny Etling hasn't made much of a push to supplant Hoyer as the Patriots' No. 2 QB. With Tom Brady entrenched as the team's starter, Hoyer is only worth rostering in formats with deep enough benches to secure insurance for key starters. In the event that Brady suffers an injury, Hoyer is capable enough to produce decent fantasy numbers while helming the New England offense, but his upside on that front obviously can't match Brady's.

Patriots' Danny Etling: Sees brief action Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Etling saw seven snaps in Thursday's preseason win over the Eagles, logging one incompletion and a sack in the process.

Etling's play has yet to generate much buzz this summer and it's possible that the 2018 seventh-rounder ends up on the Patriots' practice squad, in the event that the team elects to roster just two QBs. Of course, if Etling ends up being cut, he could be scooped up on waivers. Either way, the 24-year-old is viewed as a developmental QB, and it would take a series of injuries to players above him on the depth chart for him to draw a regular-season NFL start this year.

Patriots' Dwayne Allen: Sits out Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (undisclosed) logged a "did not play" Thursday night against the Eagles

With Rob Gronkowski rested Thursday, Jacob Hollister drew the start at tight end for the Patriots. While it looks like Allen will stick around thanks to his blocking ability, he shouldn't necessarily be viewed as Gronkowski insurance. Hollister's pass-catching skills seem likely to land him a roster spot and he'd probably step into a more productive role in the event that Gronkowski misses any time.

Patriots' Keionta Davis: Leads defense in snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (undisclosed) had four total tackles (one solo) and 1.5 sacks during Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Davis led all Patriots defenders with 55 defensive snaps on the night. The 24-year-old did not make New England's 53-man roster last season after going undrafted in 2017.
