Report: Patriots' LaFell, Vereen, Edelman all expected to play Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh) and running back Shane Vereen (ankle) are all expected to play Week 15 against the Dolphins, despite being listed as questionable on the injury report, according to ESPN.

Patriots list nine questionable for Sunday against the Dolphins


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Patriots defensive lineman Dominique Easley is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a knee injury. The Boston Herald reported earlier in the day the team is considering placing Easley on injured-reserve to have him healthy in 2015. 

The Patriots also listed nine players as questionable for Sunday including: Dont'a Hightower, Cameron Fleming, Brandon LaFell  Chandler Jones, Rob Ninkovich, Chris WhiteJulian Edelman, Dan Connolly and Shane Vereen


Julian Edelman still not great in standard leagues


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman certainly had a big game Week 14 at San Diego and, with an average of 8.0 catches in his last five games, has gotten back to being a fixture in PPR lineups. But he's averaged a modest 83.4 yards during that stretch and, given his size and role in the passing game, isn't much of a red-zone target for Tom Brady. His touchdown catch Sunday was just his third all season.

He's plenty usable in standard leagues, but more as a flex option than anything else.

For more major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


Patriots WR Julian Edelman posts 141 yards, scores TD Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman caught eight of his 12 targets for 141 yards and a touchdown in his team's 23-14 win over the Chargers in Week 14.

Edelman had already put together a solid performance before catching a long pass in the fourth quarter and evading the defense en route to a 69-yard touchdown, his longest catch of the season. The touchdown was his first since Week 9, and the 100-yard game was his first of the season. Edelman has racked up 85 catches, 884 yards and three touchdowns along with 88 rushing yards heading into Week 15's matchup with the Dolphins.


Patriots' Brady, Vereen, Edelman, LaFell active Week 14


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Nine players on the Patriots' final Week 14 injury report are active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, including quarterback Tom Brady (ankle), running back Shane Vereen (ankle) and wide receivers Julian Edelman (thigh) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder).

Brady and tackle Marcus Cannon (hip) were listed as probable, so their absence from the team's inactive list isn't a surprise. Vereen, Edelman and LaFell all carried questionable tags coming into Sunday. Other questionables who are active against the Chargers include center Danny Aiken (concussion), guard Dan Connolly (ankle), defensive tackle Dominique Easley (knee) and cornerback Kyle Arrington (ankle).


Patriots list 10 players questionable for Week 14


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) As expected, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) and offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (hip) were the only players deemed probable for Sunday's Week 14 clash against the Chargers. Linebacker Chris White (ankle) was ruled doubtful.

Meanwhile, the following players were designated as questionable for the game: Long snapper Danny Aiken (concussion), cornerback Kyle Arrington (ankle), offensive lineman Dan Connolly (ankle), defensive lineman Dominique Easley (knee), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh) offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder) and running back Shane Vereen (ankle).

All 10 New England players that were listed as questionable were limited participants in practice the entire week leading up to the game.


Patriots backup pass catchers don't do much Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Patriots backup pass catchers did little Week 13 against the Packers.

Julian Edelman actually turned in a decent game despite dealing with an injury. He hauled in seven catches for 48 yards. Edelman missed time with a thigh injury, but was able to return to the contest. Michael Hoomanawanui caught one ball, gaining 23 yards. Timothy Wright also hauled in one pass, gaining 12 yards. 

The group will take on the Chargers Week 14. 


Patriots' Julian Edelman able to return Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Patriots wideout Julian Edelman was able to return Week 13 against the Packers.

Edelman pulled up with a thigh injury early in the third quarter. He was initially ruled questionable, but was able to get back into the game after stretching out his leg. 


Tom Brady, Shane Vereen good to go for Patriots


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Patriots will have Tom Brady and Shane Vereen Week 13 against the Packers.

Brady was listed as probable due to an ankle injury. He was always expected to play. Vereen came into the contest listed as questionable. He's also dealing with an ankle injury, but will attempt to play through it. 

The team is also expected to have Danny Aiken, Dan Connolly, Dominique Easley and Brandon LaFell. All four players were also listed as questionable, but will try to play.

Marcus Cannon and Julian Edelman, who were considered probable, are also active for the contest. 


Questionables dominate injury report issued by Patriots


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Eleven Patriots are on their injury report for their Sunday game against Green Bay, but none have been deemed any worse than questionable.

Eight have been given that designation, including running back Shane Vereen (ankle). The others are long snapper Danny Aiken (concussion), offensive linemen Dan Connolly (ankle) and Cameron Fleming (ankle/finger), defensive linemen Chandler Jones (hip) and Dominique Easley (knee), wideout Brandon LaFell (shoulder) and linebacker Chris White (ankle).

The probables are headlined by quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) and wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh). The other is offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (hip).


Julian Edelman back to being PPR stud


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) Maybe for some PPR owners, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman never lost must-start status, but with his role limiting his scoring potential and capping his yardage from week to week, he needs to have bunches of catches to keep that distinction. And for a while there, he wasn't getting them.

To be more specific, during a five-game stretch spanning Weeks 4-8, he averaged 4.6 catches for 41.4 yards. And considering he had a nine-catch, 91-yard performance mixed in there, you can imagine how yucky the other four were.

But in three games since, he has averaged 8.3 catches for 76.0 yards, looking more like the player we saw the first three weeks of the season. His performance Week 12 against Detroit was especially encouraging. He was targeted 15 times, catching 11 passes for 89 yards.

Now, if you play in a standard Fantasy league, the occasional 80-yard game isn't going to do much for you, but if you play in a PPR league, a consistent 5-10 catches, which Edelman has gotten back to delivering recently, is a pretty big deal. Time to get him active again.


Patriots WR Julian Edelman racks up 89 yards in Week 12 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman turned in another impressive performance, falling 11 yards shy of the century mark in his team's 34-9 victory over Detroit in Week 12.

Edelman came down with four receptions for 10-plus yards, including a 16-yard grab in the second quarter. He came down with 11 of the 15 passes thrown his way for 89 yards. He has 695 yards with two touchdowns on the season.

He'll look to keep rolling Week 13 against Green Bay.


Brady, Edelman, Gray among notable Patriots actives Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) As expected, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (ankle), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh) and running back Jonas Gray (not injury related) were ruled as active for Week 12. All three players entered Sunday as probable. Gray is the only player of the three that isn't expected to start.

(11/21/2014) The Patriots have ruled Cameron Fleming (ankle, finger) and Chandler Jones (hip) out for Sunday's game against Detroit, according to New England's final injury report released Friday.

Pats WR Julian Edelman banged up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) Patriots receiver Julian Edelman was limited with a thigh injury in Wednesday's practice after getting banged up against the Colts, reports the Boston Herald. New England hosts the Lions on Sunday.

Brandon LaFell leads Patriots WR corps in Week 11


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell led his position group with 62 yards on three catches in Sunday's 42-20 win over the Colts in Week 11.

The Patriots ran roughshod over the Colts, and when Tom Brady hooked up with his teammates on passing touchdowns, they went to the tight ends. LaFell did his damage on just four targets. Julian Edelman led all Patriots players with five catches and eight targets but managed just 50 yards in the game. Danny Amendola kicked in 13 yards while catching both of his targets.

The Patriots are set to face the Lions at home in Week 12.


Patriots WR Julian Edelman finds the end zone Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Patriots wideout Julian Edelman managed to find the end zone Week 9 against the Broncos.

Edelman didn't even need Tom Brady in order to have a big game. At the beginning of the second quarter, Edelman managed to run back a punt 84 yards for a score. It was the fourth punt return touchdown of his career. With Brady, though, Edelman also turned in a strong game. He caught nine passes for 89 yards and a score. Edelman and Brady hooked up on a 5 yard strike in the second quarter. 

Edelman is on a bye Week 10.


Julian Edelman bounces back with touchdown


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) After a few disappointing efforts, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman put up a vintage performance in Week 9's 43-21 win over the Broncos.

Edelman, who had gone six straight weeks with a touchdown, found the end zone for the second time all season Sunday, on a 5-yard pass from Tom Brady, and then scored on an 84-yard punt return touchdown shortly after. He hauled in nine of 10 passes thrown his way for 89 yards overall, his best performance since Week 6.

Edelman is just short of the pace needed for his second 1,000-yard season in a row, but has largely been a disappointment this season, with just four double-digit Fantasy efforts in nine games. He will try to build on his Week 9 outing when the team returns from its bye in Week 11 against the Colts. 


Brandon LaFell not the only Patriots WR to consider


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/29/2014) It's time to give Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell a shot in Fantasy -- as in not just owning him, but starting him. If his 11 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown Week 8 against the Bears weren't enough to convince you, his matchup Week 9 against Denver should be.

It's not that the Broncos are so bad against the pass. They rank in the middle of the pack, allowing 242.9 yards per game. It's just that the Patriots' only hope against them is to beat Peyton Manning at his own game. Their passing attack -- at least the version they've shown in the last four weeks -- is good enough to beat anybody when they're motivated to use it.

LaFell appears to have leapfrogged Julian Edelman in the pecking order, but frankly, Edelman might not be such a bad play either. Tom Brady is going to need every weapon at his disposal to outscore Manning and company. Edelman is more of a desperation play than LaFell, I think, advisable only if you're short on startable wide receivers, but Dave Richard likes him enough with this matchup to rank him 24th at the position.


Brandon LaFell pushing Julian Edelman out?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) Tom Brady had a new favorite target Week 8 against Chicago, and I don't mean tight end Rob Gronkowski. He may have led the Patriots with 149 yards and three touchdowns, but wide receiver Brandon LaFell actually had more targets and catches, finishing with 11 of both for 124 yards and a touchdown of his own.

So where was Julian Edelman in all of this? He was suddenly an afterthought in the passing game, making just one grab for 14 yards. The poor production has been going on for a while now, but he also had just four targets in this one, nearly half his previous low of seven.

We may have witnessed a changing of the guard here. Though LaFell consistently trailed Edelman in targets the previous four weeks, he averaged 72.8 yards during that stretch to Edelman's 48.3. True, because of his role, Edelman will never average many yards per catch, but now that Brady has some trust in LaFell, he may not have much incentive to target Edelman, who has also struggled with drops recently. His comparatively small gains are even harder to justify when they're not cinch completions.

With this performance, I'd consider LaFell a must-add. He has a growing role in an explosive offense. And though it would have seemed like blasphemy just a few weeks ago, I don't know that Edelman is beyond dropping in standard (as in non-PPR) leagues.
