Patriots' Mike Gillislee: Bottled up by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gillislee was limited to 31 yards on 12 carries without a target in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

Houston's stout front successfully bottled up New England's ground game, so Gillislee was a non-factor while quarterback Tom Brady threw five touchdown passes. Gillislee is averaging only 3.2 yards per carry and is yet to catch a pass through three games, but has already scored four rushing touchdowns for the high-powered Patriots offense despite being held out of the end zone here.

Patriots' Brandin Cooks: Two long touchdowns against Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooks caught five of seven targets for 131 yards and two touchdowns while adding a two-point conversion in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

Cooks had been relatively quiet through his first 10 quarters with New England, but exploded for touchdown catches of 42 and 25 yards in the second half. The latter score put his team ahead by one point with 23 seconds to play and was accompanied by a successful two-point conversion catch to provide the final margin. Cooks is seeing less volume in New England than he did with New Orleans, but the combination of Cooks' explosiveness and Tom Brady's ability to find his receivers makes the speedster capable of producing elite performances like this one any given week.

Patriots' Chris Hogan: Scores twice in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hogan (knee) caught four of six targets for 68 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

Through a combination of good play design and opposing ineptitude, Hogan was open as could be on both of his touchdowns. They came from seven and 47 yards out, respectively, and were the second and third of five touchdowns thrown by quarterback Tom Brady. He ranked third in targets behind Rob Gronkowski (10) and Brandin Cooks (seven), which is an accurate depiction of their respective roles in this offense.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Eight catches in wild win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski caught eight of 10 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

Gronkowski was denied in the end zone on 2nd and goal, but came right back with a five-yard touchdown on the next play to cap New England's first drive. While he was heavily involved in the offense the rest of the way, the tight end's contributions were overshadowed by two-touchdown performances from wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan. Looking healthy after exiting last week's win over the Saints early with a groin injury, Gronkowski is a surefire TE1 regardless of opponent.

Patriots' Tom Brady: Throws five touchdowns in nail-biting win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brady completed 25 of 35 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns while adding a six-yard rush and losing one of three fumbles in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

Brady spread the ball around in this masterful performance, connecting with Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan for two touchdowns apiece after hooking up with Rob Gronkowski on an opening drive score. While his lost fumble was caught in the air and returned for a touchdown by Jadaveon Clowney, Brady made amends by hitting Cooks for the game-winning 25-yard touchdown with 23 seconds left. The 40-year-old star was held out of the end zone in a season-opening loss, but has rebounded with 825 yards and eight passing touchdowns in the past two weeks.
