Latest Updates

 

Patriots defense comes up big in win at Minnesota


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) The Patriots DST delivered on a blocked field goal when Chandler Jones returned the ball 58 yards for a touchdown and added four interceptions of quarterback Matt Cassel (including one from Darrelle Revis) and six sacks with a forced fumble. The Patriots held the Vikings to just 7 points and 217 net yards. 

We could see another great performance from this unit in Week 3 when the Raiders head to Foxboro. 


Four on Patriots' defense questionable for Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) The Patriots have four players from the defensive side on the injury report for Week 2 against the Vikings, and all enter the weekend with their availability for Sunday's game in doubt.

Defensive linemen Michael Buchanan (ankle), Chris Jones (ankle) and Sealver Siliga (hand), along with linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh) are all considered questionable for Sunday. All four were limited in practice throughout the week. 


Patriots pass rush fails to show up in opening loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The Patriots had little success getting after the quarterback in Week 1 against the Dolphins, as Rob Ninkovich and Chandler Jones combined for no sacks in the 33-20 loss Sunday.

 Jones had four solo tackles in the game, while Ninkovich had five. Neither player recorded a quarterback hit in the game, as the team's pass rush was basically nonexistent. 


Jamie Collins plays well in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins had a decent showing in Week 1 against the Dolphins, a 33-20 loss.

Collins had eight solo tackles in the loss, as he finished second on the team. He added a pass defense and a forced fumble as well. 


Jerod Mayo starts season with strong performance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo made a big impact in Week 1 against the Dolphins, albeit in a 33-20 loss.

Mayo led the team in tackles with 12 -- 10 solo -- and was the only player to get to the quarterback in the loss. He had one sack in the game. 


Early success not enough for Patriots DST


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Patriots defense forced a slew of turnovers early in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, but fell apart late in a 33-20 loss.

The Patriots DST unit came up with three big first-half plays, as they forced a trio of turnovers and limited the Dolphins to 10 points before halftime. They recovered a pair of fumbles and interception Ryan Tannehill once, but did little else otherwise, recording one sack total in the loss.

The Patriots DST failed to live up to expectations in the opener, but will look for better results in Week 2 against the Vikings. 


Sealver Siliga able to play Week 1


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots defensive lineman Sealver Siliga (hand) is in uniform for Week 1 against the Dolphins, after being listed on the injury report as questionable. 

Patriots should find success in Week 1


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) The Patriots are expected to be much-improved on the defensive side of the ball this season, and they get their first chance to show it in Week 1 against the Dolphins Sunday.

The Patriots struggled just a bit against the Dolphins last season, at least in their second matchup late in the season. Miami scored 24 points on 378 yards of total offense, while the Patriots managed just one turnover, for an eight-point showing from a Fantasy perspective.

Of course, that game came without the services of offseason addition Darrelle Revis and returning defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, who missed both matchups a year ago. The Dolphins ranked just 26th in points per game a year ago, and opposing DST units averaged 11.8 Fantasy points per game against them, so this should be a good matchup for the Patriots to show off their improvements. Consider New England a high-end DST option for Week 1. 


James Morris exits game with leg injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Patriots linebacker James Morris suffered an apparent right leg injury during Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants, the Boston Globe reports. Morris limped off the field with team trainers in the first half after sustaining the injury. 

Chris Jones to miss preseason with ankle injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Patriots defensive lineman Chris Jones will miss the remainder of the preseason, after suffering an injury to his left ankle in Thursday's preseason opener.

According to ESPN.com, the injury is not expected to be a season-ender, but will have more tests to confirm the diagnosis Friday. His availability for the start of the regular season is not yet known at this point.

Jones finished his rookie season with 54 tackles and six sacks.


Patriots select Dominique Easley at No. 29


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) With the No. 29 pick in the NFL Draft, the Patriots selected defensive tackle Dominique Easley from Florida.

Easley, who is 6-foot-2, 288 pounds, suffered two ACL tears in college. He came back from a left ACL tear in 2011, then blew out his right ACL last September.

When healthy, Easley has exceptional quickness, constantly playing on the other side of the line of scrimmage. He will provide the Patriots defense and Patriots DST with depth as a rotation player behind Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly.


Brandon Browner inks three-year deal with Pats


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) Cornerback Brandon Browner signed a three-year deal with the Patriots on Friday, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Browner is set to serve a four-game suspension to start the season. He played just eight games last season with the Seahawks due to the suspension. He finished with 19 tackles and one interception, and has 10 interceptions in 36 career games. 


Darrelle Revis agrees to one-year deal with Patriots


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Patriots have agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent corner Darrelle Revis Wednesday according to ESPN.com, just hours after he was released by the Buccaneers. Revis will be taking a paycut while maintaining long-term flexibility, as the deal will pay him $12 million for 2014.

Revis had a solid 2013 season with the Buccaneers, recording 50 tackles and two interceptions while playing in all 16 games after recovering from knee surgery. He will replace the recently departed Aqib Talib for the Patriots, with one Pro-Bowl corner stepping in for another. 


Brandon Spikes, Patriots expected to part ways


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes isn't expected to return to the team in 2014, reports ESPN.

Spikes appeared on the NFL Network on Friday and said "both sides could benefit from a fresh start." He also added that his injured knee is "100 percent."

Spikes, who had 86 tackles during the 2013 season, was placed on injured reserve in advance of the AFC divisional round in part due to missing a team meeting. Spikes also was dealing with a knee issue during the latter part of the season.


New deal would help Vince Wilfork, Pats


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork could be in line for a contract extension to help the team with salary cap space, reports ESPN.

Wilfork, 32, is currently entering the final year of his contract with a large cap number at $11.6 million. He also is recovering from an Achilles tear.

The Patriots view Wilfork as a central focus of their defense. A contract extension would not only lock up Wilfork for the future, it could afford the team salary-cap flexibility.


Cory Grissom could play role in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) Patriots defensive lineman Cory Grissom is hoping to make an impact in 2014, reports MassLive.com.

Grissom, an undrafted rookie, was placed on injured reserve after suffering a high-ankle sprain during a preseason game against the Lions. Prior to that, the University of South Florida product was making a case for the practice squad.

Grissom, who recorded 105 tackles, 16.5 for a loss, with five sacks over four seasons in college, was sent to Florida to work out and recover on his own during the season. It is expected that Grissom will be given the opportunity to earn a roster spot next season.


Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo expected to be ready for camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Two key Patriots who finished last season on injured reserve, defensive tackle Vince Wilfork and linebacker Jerod Mayo, are expected to be ready for training camp, reports ESPN.com. Wilfork is coming back from a torn Achilles' tendon, Mayo from a torn pectoral muscle.

Kyle Arrington to have groin surgery Friday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington, who played through a groin injury most of last season, is set to have surgery Friday, reports the team's website. Arrington had 62 tackles, two sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles while not missing a game.

He's expected to be ready for training camp.


Patriots can save money with Vince Wilfork move


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) The Patriots likely will try to restructure the contract of defensive tackle Vince Wilfork before resorting to cutting him, reports NESN.com. Wilfork, 32 and coming off an Achilles' injury, carries an $11.6 million cap number in 2014, the last year of his contract.

The website expects Wilfork to return on a three-year deal that saves New England $3 million or more.


Robert Kraft hoping to keep Aqib Talib


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he "very much" wants free agent cornerback Aqib Talib back, per the Boston Globe. "Look what happened in the Denver game when he went down," Kraft added.

The Broncos passed at will against the Patriots in the AFC Championship game after Talib injured his knee in the first quarter.


Devin McCourty hopes to remain Aqib Talib's teammate


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Patriots safety Devin McCourty is hoping he hasn't played his last game alongside secondary mate Aqib Talib. The cornerback is slated to be a free agent after playing for $5.5 million in 2013.

"It's a business, so both sides have to come to an agreement," McCourty told the Boston Herald. "Even if you say both sides want it to work, that doesn't always mean that's what is going to happen. Aqib has been a good friend of mine now. I've gotten to know him, and I hope he is back."

The knee Talib injured in the AFC Championship game is not expected to require surgery.


Wes Welker hit on Aqib Talib deemed legal


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino has confirmed that the controversial hit Sunday by Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker on Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib was within NFL rules, according to NFL Network.

The hit that knocked Talib out of the AFC Championship Game brought a complaint from Bill Belichick about his former player. Belichick said after the game it was one of the worst hits he's ever seen.


Bill Belichick: Aqib Talib knee shouldn't require surgery


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) Bill Belichick does not believe that the knee injury that forced Patriots premier cornerback Aqib Talib out of the AFC title game will require surgery, ESPN has reported.

"I don't think we're talking about an injury that would be of that kind of significance," Belichick said.

Talib is set to be a free agent.


Report: Patriots, Aqib Talib interested in reunion


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) Patriots top cornerback Aqib Talib is set to become a free agent for the second straight offseason. According to ESPN.com, Talib is comfortable in New England and "there appears to be mutual interest in bringing Talib back."

Talib had to leave the AFC Championship Game with a knee injury, and his absence enabled Peyton Manning to pick apart New England's secondary. 


Patriots DST flops in a big way


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) After intercepting Andrew Luck four times in the divisional round, the Patriots DST did not bother Peyton Manning in the AFC Championship Game. New England did not register a sack or quarterback hit, and was unable to force a turnover.

The Patriots gave up 507 total yards and allowed the Broncos to control the ball for nearly 36 minutes. True, New England was hurt by the injury to top cornerback Aqib Talib. But the title game demonstrated clearly that New England must improve its pass rush this offseason.
