  Patriots | Julian Edelman struggles in Week 6    Sun Oct 18, 05:17 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught two passes for eight yards on six targets against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He also completed two passes for 38 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Edelman was a bigger contributor as a passer than a receiver. He has looked worn out in recent games and we can't ignore his residency on the injury report as a reason why. He's no longer in starting consideration until we see a good result and might even be droppable in short bench legaues soon.

  Patriots | James White catches eight passes    Sun Oct 18, 05:13 PM

New England Patriots RB James White caught eight passes for 65 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He also rushed for eight yards on four carries during the game.

Footballguys view: White was a fine play in PPR leagues, but only because the offense struggled and never established the run or the downfield passing game. He's a fine PPR flex or RB2 in a pinch against the 49ers next week.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead held to 14 yards    Sun Oct 18, 05:06 PM

  Patriots | Damien Harris held in check    Sun Oct 18, 05:03 PM

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris rushed for 19 yards on six carries against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He also caught one pass for 14 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Harris dominated the work in the backfield before the Patriots unscheduled bye, but he just blended into the mix against the underrated Broncos run defense. He'll need to pop with some big plays or scores on our benches if we'll consider him again, and he's not an essential hold.

  Patriots | Cam Newton posts 233 total yards    Sun Oct 18, 04:56 PM

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton went 17-for-25 for 157 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He also rushed for 76 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Newton was uneven and only a long scramble got his team in scoring position for their only offensive touchdown - which he scored on the ground. Newton has always been a feast or famine fantasy quarterback, so the hope is that he and the Patriots offense will bounce back against the depleted 49ers defense next week.

  Patriots | Cam Newton practicing Thursday    Thu Oct 15, 01:23 PM

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Newton is back in action and should be ready to go against the Broncos on Sunday. The Broncos defense is not that strong unless they're playing the Jets....so Newton should perform like a QB1 for Fantasy GMs in Week 6.

  Patriots | Stephon Gilmore won't practice Saturday    Sat Oct 10, 10:27 AM

New England Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore will not practice Saturday, Oct. 10, according to head coach Bill Belichick.

Footballguys view: We won't see Gilmore in Week 5 against the Broncos since he's tested positive for COVID-19. The game has been moved to Monday, and without their top cornerback the Patriots defense will have to figure out ways to cover Tim Patrick and Jerry Jeudy.

  Patriots | NE hasn't decided on starting QB for Week 5    Sat Oct 10, 10:18 AM

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton has not been ruled out of starting Week 5's game versus the Denver Broncos, even though he will not practice Saturday, Oct. 10, according to head coach Bill Belichick. 'I'm not getting into a bunch of hypotheticals,' Belichick said, when asked about who would be the starting quarterback if Newton was unable to play Monday, Oct. 12. 'We're taking it day by day, hour by hour.'

Footballguys view: We'll see what the Patriots do here. Newton may not be able to play since testing positive for COVID-19. The Patriots may just go with Jarrett Stidham as their starter against the Broncos on Monday.

New England Patriots QB Jarrett Stidham would start Monday, Oct. 12, against the Denver Broncos if QB Cam Newton (COVID-19) has to miss a second straight start.

Footballguys view: It's unclear who will get the start for New England Monday. Cam Newton would obviously be the best case scenario for the offense, but Stidham looked more ready to play than Brian Hoyer last Monday night.
