Patriots DST adequate against Jets


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) The Patriots didn't have a monster defensive performance Week 16 at the Jets, recording just two sacks with one takeaway, an interception by Jamie Collins in the third quarter, but they performed adequately against one of the league's worst offensive teams, allowing 16 points on 307 yards.

It was their fourth game in five allowing less than 20 points. However, it was the just the second time during that same stretch that the Patriots DST didn't score double-digit Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues.

A lack of big plays are to blame, but those aren't always so predictable from week to week. The Patriots DST has been one of the most consistent in Fantasy this season and has a favorable matchup Week 17 against Buffalo, so keep it active.


Report: Patriots CB Kyle Arrington skips trip to New York


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington did not make the trip to New York and will be inactive Week 16 against the Jets, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN on Saturday. Arrington suffered a hamstring injury in a win over the Dolphins in Week 15.

Through 14 games, Arrington has registered 39 combined tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. Before getting hurt last week, Arrington recovered a blocked field goal and took it for a 57-yard touchdown.

New England (11-3) is 10 1/2-point favorite on the road against New York (3-11).


Patriots D dominates Dolphins in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The Patriots defense came up with another big performance in Week 15, in a 41-13 win over the Dolphins.

The Patriots gave up 384 yards of total offense to the Dolphins, but held them to just one late touchdown in the first half. They picked Ryan Tannehill off twice and sacked him four times, finishing with 20 Fantasy points for their troubles, their best showing since Week 2.

The Patriots DST has scored in double figures in Fantasy points in three of the last four games, and should be able to keep that going in Week 16, with the Jets on the schedule. The Patriots had just 5 points against the Jets the last time these two met up, but opposing DST units are averaging 12.4 per game against them for the season. 


Patriots downgrade CB Kyle Arrington to out Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The Patriots have downgraded cornerback Kyle Arrington to out for the remainder of Week 15 against the Dolphins with a hamstring injury. The announcement was made shortly after halftime. He recovered a blocked field goal and took it for a 57-yard touchdown in the opening quarter before leaving the game.

Patriots CB Kyle Arrington exits with hamstring injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington was forced out Sunday's game against the Dolphins in Week 15 with a hamstring injury. Arrington suffered the injury in the second quarter and was ruled questionable to return to the game, per the team's official website.

Patriots DE Chandler Jones primed to return Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones was ruled as active for Sunday's clash against Miami in Week 15. Jones missed his previous six games with a hip injury. His workload is yet to be determined, per a recent report from the Boston Herald.

Jones has 4.5 sacks through seven games played.


Patriots DE Chandler Jones could return on limited basis Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones (hip) has a chance to return from a six-game absence in Week 15 against Miami, the Boston Herald reports. If Jones does in fact return, he'll likely be used as a rotational pass rusher, spelling Akeem Ayers from time to time.

"I've been out for a little while, as we all know, so I've been wanting to play for the longest (time)," Jones said. "The competitor that I am and being around this team is a great feeling. Every day, I'm just doing what I can do to help the team."


Report: Patriots considering placing DT Dominique Easley on IR


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) The Patriots are considering placing defensive tackle Dominique Easley on the season-ending injured reserve list in order to have him healthy for the 2015 season, according to a report from the Boston Herald.

Easley, a first-round pick in this year's draft, played only nine snaps in Week 14 against San Diego, lacking explosion in the pass rush, per ESPN. He has just one sack and 10 combined tackles through 11 games played. Easley, who tore his right ACL in 2013 and his left ACL in 2011, been unable to practice this week because of a knee issue. 


Patriots DST bounces back


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) After giving up a bunch yards to the Packers in a rare loss last week, the Patriots DST rebounded with a strong performance Week 14 at San Diego, allowing 14 points on 216 yards. It also had four sacks and one interception.

The 14 Fantasy points were the most for the Patriots DST since it scored 15 back in Week 8, but it did have a dominant showing Week 12 against the Lions, giving up nine points on 335 yards. It was simply lacking in big plays in that game.

The Patriots DST is one of those units that will step up even with unfavorable matchups from time to time, but of course, it's most appealing when it has a favorable one. Its matchup Week 15 against Miami is middle of the road. The Patriots allowed 33 points to the Dolphins in their previous meeting, but that was way back in Week 1. Chances are the Patriots DST will put up a respectable line in this one.


Patriots DT Sealver Siliga activated from IR


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2014) The Patriots have activated defensive tackle Sealver Siliga from the short-term injured reserve list to New England's 53-man roster on Saturday, according to ESPN. Siliga was sidelined since Week 3 against Oakland due to a foot injury. He is expected to play Sunday against San Diego.

Patriots can't hold up vs. Packers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Patriots DST unit entered Week 13 against the Packers rolling, but couldn't slow down the dominant Green Bay offense in a 26-21 loss.

The Packers racked up 478 yards of total offense in the game, but the Patriots did a good job of holding up in the red zone, limiting the Packers to four field goals in their trips. However, the Patriots did little else right, finishing the game with no turnovers forced and only three sacks on their line.

The Patrios DST unit finished the game with 5 Fantasy points, their worst showing since Week 7 against the Jets. They face the Chargers in Week 14. 


Patriots defense shuts down Lions


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) The Patriots had a shutdown defensive performance Week 12 against Detroit, limiting the Lions to nine points on 335 yards. They recorded two sacks and an interception, giving them four straight games with at least one of the latter.

From a Fantasy perspective, it wasn't the best the Patriots DST has played -- they didn't score a touchdown on that side of the ball, after all -- but it was a step in the right direction after the big yardage given up in recent weeks.

By now, though, a few extra yards shouldn't be enough to scare you way from the Patriots DST. It's been one of the most reliable units in Fantasy this season, making it not such a terrible play even with a difficult matchup Week 13 at Green Bay.


Special teams provides a lift in big Patriots' win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) The Patriots DST unit took on a tough matchup in Week 9, but came out with a few big plays in a 43-21 win over the Broncos.

The Patriots didn't really get much pressure on Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, registering just one sack,  but forced Manning into two interceptions anyways. However, the biggest play of the game came in the form of a special teams touchdown, as Julian Edelman broke things open wide in the second quarter with an 84-yard punt return for a score.

The Patriots ended the game with 13 Fantasy points, the first double-digit game against the Broncos all season. They are averaging 12.7 Fantasy points per game with six double-digit games in nine tries, and should be viewed as a solid starting option when they return from a Week 10 bye, even against the high-scoring Colts. 


Patriots DST solid in high-scoring game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) In a game that was already decided at the half, the Patriots allowed 23 points to the visiting Bears in Week 8. Of course, 16 of those points came in the second half, just like 265 of the Bears' 384 yards came in the second half -- again, with the game already decided.

Even playing at presumably less than full intensity for that half, the Patriots DST still had a strong performance in Fantasy. A touchdown by defensive lineman Rob Ninkovich on a fumble recovery just before halftime had something to do with it. The Patriots also had three sacks and an interception.

The Patriots DST has been one of the most reliable units in Fantasy this season, scoring double-digit Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues three of the last four weeks and five of the last seven. Unfortunately, it has the toughest matchup of all Week 9 against Denver, so you'll need to find a one-week replacement.


Patriots DE Chandler Jones will not need surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Patriots defense end Chandler Jones will not require hip surgery, but is expected to be sidelined a minimum of six weeks, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora on Sunday. Jones suffered the hip injury during Week 7 against the Jets and does not have a torn labrum, according to sources.

However, the injury could keep him sidelined for the remainder of the regular season, according to the Boston Globe. He remains hopeful of returning to action in time to make a playoff run for New England.


Report: Darrelle Revis was sent home Tuesday for showing up late


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis was not allowed to participate in practice and meetings Tuesday after coach Bill Belichick sent him home for the day since Revis arrived late to the team's facility Tuesday morning, three league sources told The Boston Globe.

One source close to the cornerback said Revis accepted responsibility for his actions. He was back at practice Wednesday. The Patriots declined to comment on the situation. The Patriots were not required to put out an injury report for Tuesday or explain any players being absent.

Belichick did not make a huge announcement to the rest of the team about sending Revis home, but one source said, "The message was definitely sent. The rules apply to everybody."


Forecast shows good things for Patriots DST


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) The Patriots DST has reached double digits in Fantasy points in four of six games so far this season, and has a good chance to make it five in Week 7 against the Jets.

The Jets offense has been a disaster recently, with opposing Fantasy DST units averaging 17.8 Fantasy points per game against them. So, even if the Patriots weren't already third in Fantasy scoring, they would be worth using against this reeling offense. Throw in the fact that the game is being played on a Thursday and a weather report that indicates plenty of rain in the area, and there is little reason not to start the Patriots.

The Patriots should be considered a must-start Fantasy DST unit for Week 7. 


Report: Patriots LB Jerod Mayo expected to miss rest of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) The knee injury suffered by Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo in Week 6 against the Bills has turned out to be as serious as it looked. Mayo is expected to miss the remainder of the season after being carted off with a lower right leg injury that multiple sources say "is bad," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports on Monday.

He was on pace for his first 100-plus tackle season since 2012. His season ends with 53 combined tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery.


Bittersweet afternoon for Patriots DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) The Patriots DST had another strong showing Week 6 at Buffalo, limiting the Bills to 22 points on 336 yards. The Patriots had five sacks, one interception and two fumble recoveries. In standard CBSSports.com leagues, they've now scored double-digit Fantasy points in four of the last five weeks, with the one exception being a 41-point outburst by the Chiefs in Week 4.

They did suffer a big loss, though, when linebacker Jerod Mayo left in the second quarter with what looked like a serious knee injury. His loss doesn't ruin the Patriots DST for Fantasy purposes, but it does change the dynamic a bit.

Fortunately, their matchup in Week 7 should make the transition easier. They're hosting the Jets, who've allowed the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to DSTs this season.


Belichick: Patriots 'have to be ready to move on without' Jerod Mayo


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday it is believed Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo suffered a significant knee injury Week 6 against the Bills, but the team is awaiting further test results to learn the severity of the injury.

On Monday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick kind of echoed the sentiments Mayo could be dealing with a serious injury, per ESPN.

"Keep our fingers crossed for him and see exactly what the situation is. Have to be ready to move on without him," Belichick said.

Patriots back on track defensively


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) After getting blown out Week 4 at Kansas City, the Patriots got back on track both offensively and defensively Week 5 vs. Cincinnati, limiting the Bengals to 17 points on 320 yards. They recorded just one sack but recovered three fumbles, including one that defensive back Kyle Arrington returned 9 yards for a fumble.

Even with the Chiefs' 41-point outburst in Week 4, the Patriots have allowed an average of 18.5 points over the last four weeks. Their DST remains a strong Fantasy play when they visit Buffalo in Week 6.


Report: Brandon Browner unlikely to play in Week 5


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2014) Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner is unlikely to play in Week 5 despite being eligible to return from suspension, ESPN.com reports.

Browner missed the first four games of the year while serving a suspension and wasn't able to practice with the time while sidelined. He'll likely make his return in Week 6 against the Bills.
