New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 5.
Huddle Up: Meyers has a chance to play in the Week after sitting out last week because of the injury. He is the main option in the passing game for the Patriots when healthy and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he plays.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 5.
Huddle Up: Jones was not able to play in Week 4 but appears to have a chance to play this week. Fantasy players will know more about Jones' status later in the week, but he can be avoided in most leagues if he is active.

New England Patriots WR Tyquan Thornton (collarbone) was designated to return from injured reserve on Wednesday, Oct. 5, opening his 21-day window to be activated.
Huddle Up: Thornton was a standout all offseason long, so he should have a role once he's activated. However, the Pats' passing attack has been shaky at best, making Thornton nothing more than bench stash in dynasty formats and a player to watch in re-draft leagues.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 5, per ESPN's Dan Graziano on Wednesday, Oct. 5.
Huddle Up: Jones appeared to up his activity level in practice on Wednesday but was still walking with a noticeable limp. With Brian Hoyer dealing with a concussion, we could see rookie Bailey Zappe under center again in Week 5. Zappe isn't a suggested waiver add or starting option but can be stashed in dynasty formats.

New England Patriots QB Brian Hoyer (head) left the Week 4 game against the Green Bay Packers in the first quarter due to a head injury, and he was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for concussion, according to the team.
Huddle Up: You probably didn't, or shouldn't, start Hoyer in fantasy leagues, even those using two starting signal callers. If Hoyer cannot return, rookie Bailey Zappe will go the rest of the way.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) was downgraded from questionable to out for Week 4 on Saturday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Meyers' absence should mean more targets for DeVante Parker and Nelson Agholor but both are total dart throws, especially with QB Brian Hoyer starting in place of an injured QB Mac Jones (ankle).

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Jones is expected to miss multiple weeks because of his injury, so Brian Hoyer will be the starter for the foreseeable future. Hoyer should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Meyers appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 4, but fantasy players will know more over the next few days. He is the top receiver for the Patriots when he is healthy and could be at least a flex option if he is active for the game.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Jones has not been ruled out for the Week 4 game, but he has missed the first two practices of the week. Fantasy players can monitor the situation, but Jones and Brian Hoyer should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is "still operating as if he has a chance" to play in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers despite suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Even if Jones toughs it out, his lack of upside plus the injury makes him difficult to start, and the Packers have been pretty stingy against fantasy quarterbacks so far.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Meyers was not able to play in the last game but seems to have a chance to play in Week 4. He likely would be working with a new quarterback if he is active this week but can still be at least a flex option in leagues.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is "definitely getting better," head coach Bill Belichick said on Wednesday, Sept. 28. "Saw Mac a little while ago," Belichick said. "Definitely getting better. Probably won't practice today, but made a lot of progress here in the last 48 hours. So, keep plugging away and take that day-by-day and see how it goes."
Huddle Up: Jones reportedly suffered a severe high ankle sprain and is expected to miss multiple weeks, leaving QB Brian Hoyer to pick up the slack. Jones should be rostered in dynasty formats but isn't a viable lineup option in re-draft leagues after ranking as QB21 through three games.

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) has been diagnosed with a severe high ankle sprain and likely will miss multiple games, according to sources. He is still going over his options and determining what is the best course of action.
Huddle Up: Brian Hoyer will be starting quarterback if Jones misses time and should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) could land on the Reserve/Injured list with what is believed to be a high-ankle sprain. An MRI will take place Monday, Sept. 26, to confirm.
Huddle Up: Brian Hoyer looks like he'll be under center for four to six weeks. That will hurt WR Jakobi Meyers' fantasy stock a bit. Hoyer only has fantasy value in two-QB leagues so don't worry rushing to waivers. Place Jones on your IR or bench, but he's not a must-own if you have roster restraints.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) has been declared inactive for the Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne and DeVante Parker should be the main receivers for the Patriots this week. Agholor is coming off a 100-yard game in Week 2 and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Meyers was back on the field Friday and probably will be available for the Week 3 game. He is the focal point in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Meyers probably will be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players can monitor the situation over the next few days. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he plays, but players will need other options ready in case Meyers is ruled out.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) underwent tests on his injured knee Wednesday, Sept. 21, but they did not reveal any serious issues, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Giardi. His status for Week 3 will be determined later in the week.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation over the next few days to see if Meyers will suit up against the Baltimore Ravens. He is the main option for the Patriots in the passing game and could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if active.

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris (knee) grabbed his knee on his final run of Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and limped off to the sideline, but he downplayed any concern about the injury with reporters Tuesday, Sept. 20.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: It was obvious from Harris' playful banter with the New England media that he expects to be OK for Week 3 versus the Baltimore Ravens. Fantasy managers should get a better idea for sure on Wednesday when the Patriots practice for the first time this week, but it would appear he will be in his usual spot as the lead back in a committee with Rhamondre Stevenson. With Ty Montgomery (knee) sidelined for at least three more weeks, both backs should be considered low-end RB2 or high-end flex options.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (back, illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Jones missed some practice time this week but should not be limited against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is coming off a tough Week 1 game and will be facing another good defense. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 quarterback.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (illness) returned to practice Friday, Sept. 16, after missing Thursday's practice.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones (illness) is not expected to practice Thursday, Sept. 15, and is in question for the Week 2 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The final injury report with designations will be released Friday.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Managers may not have wanted to play Jones regardless of an illness, but this could lead to a downgrade for all skill players in the Patriots offense for Week 2, depending on the final injury report.
