New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman finished with two catches for 23 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Edelman rolled for eight grabs, 11 targets and 179 yards last week in Seattle, and fantasy owners expected another big game against the defensively-challenged Raiders. The receiver's performance was one of the more disappointing fantasy showings of the week. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 at Kansas City.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry was limited to just two catches and 34 yards on four targets in Week 3 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: The rookie had his lowest catch, target and yardage totals of the season. At least he was able to power through an ankle injury and play, but he didn't help fantasy owners much. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 at Kansas City.

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead rushed six times for 49 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 3 against the Las Vegas Raiders and he added team highs with seven receptions, 49 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets.
Huddle Up: Burkhead was mostly invisible in the first two games, but he saw a much larger with James White inactive again. His fantasy staying power may or may not last, but hopefully you enjoyed the ride in Week 3. The Patriots travel to meet the Chiefs in Week 4.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel rushed nine times for a game-high 117 yards in Week 3 against the Las Vegas Raiders and he added two catches for 23 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Michel hit his season average for rushes per game, but a 48-yard scamper helped him to a season best in yardage. He still hasn't scored since Week 1 and remains more of a flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 4 in Kansas City.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (ankle) is active for Week 3's game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Harry had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He's worthy of consideration as a flex option this afternoon on the heels of a solid performance in Week 2, when he had eight catches for 72 yards.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) is active for Week 3's game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Edelman had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. As New England's primary receiving threat, he should be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 option in the majority of fantasy football leagues.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Harry should be able to play despite the injury, but fantasy players should check the inactive list for his official status. He is coming off a solid Week 2 game and can be considered a flex option this week.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Edelman was questionable last week and was able to play, so he likely will be in uniform against the Las Vegas Raiders. He should be the top option in the passing game for the Patriots and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy players.

New England Patriots RB James White (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 25, and has been ruled out for Week 3.
Huddle Up: There is no timetable for White's return since he is dealing with a family issue, so fantasy players should look for other options. Rex Burkhead likely will take over White's role in the offense and could be a flex option in some leagues.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Harry is coming off one of the best games of his career last week and should receive plenty of targets against the Las Vegas Raiders. He can be considered a flex option in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Edelman will be able to play this week even though he may be listed as questionable for the game. He showed a strong connection with Cam Newton last week and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Harry should be able to play this week, but fantasy players should check on his status in a few days. He is coming off a solid Week 2 performance and has been targeted at least six times in both games in 2020. He can be considered at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Edelman will be fine for the Week 3 even though he is on the injured list. He showed good chemistry with Cam Newton last week and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots RB James White (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: White is dealing with a personal matter, so his status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point. He would be a flex option in fantasy leagues if he plays in the game, but Rex Burkhead could also be a flex option if White sits out.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry had eight receptions (on 12 targets) for 72 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Following a nondescript rookie campaign, Harry has been much more involved in 2020 with his 12 targets leading the team Sunday night. He's mostly working underneath coverage right now, averaging 8.5 yards per catch, but he's at least worth adding to your watch list.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught eight passes for 179 yards against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Seattle had few answers for Edelman (or anyone else in the passing game) Sunday as the veteran set a career high with 179 yards receiving, catching eight of 11 targeted balls -- one of the misses came when a potential game-winning TD pass sailed high through his outstretched hands. Following a quiet Week 1, Edelman reminded fantasy owners that he's still a dangerous option even without Brady. He should be a WR2 most weeks.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton completed 30 of 44 passes for 397 yards, one touchdown and one interception during the team's Week 2 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Newton also ran 11 times for 47 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Huddle Up: After attempting just 19 passes in a ground-heavy gameplan against Miami in Week 1, Newton aired it out against Seattle, coming up one yard short of leading his team to a late victory. This is as good as Newton has looked in years, and you'd think he'll just get more comfortable as the season wears on, provided all the hits he has taken over the years don't catch up with him. He's once again a legitimate QB1.

Updating previous report, New England Patriots RB James White is inactive for Week 2 after losing his father, Tyrone, in a car accident Sunday, Sept. 20. James White's mother also was in the car and is in critical condition.
Huddle Up: The awful news understandably explains his abrupt absence. The Patriots will utilize RBs Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead in White's stead. It wouldn't be a surprise to see the veteran back miss Week 3 if his mother remains in medical care. The Huddle team offers its condolences to the White family.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 2's game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Harry had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He was New England's second-most targeted receiver in Week 1 and should receive a handful of targets again this week, making him a viable flex option in deeper fantasy formats.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) is expected to play in Week 2's game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Edelman had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He should be under consideration as a WR3 or flex option in fantasy leagues this week, since he is likely to see a decent number of targets.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman was on the field for five of the 27 offensive snaps played with two receivers against the Miami Dolphins in Week 1. From 2017 to 2019, he was on the field for 41 percent of the snaps in two-receiver sets.
Huddle Up: One game isn't a big sample, and Edelman was still New England's most productive receiver in the opener. Fewer snaps would lead to less consistency, but Edelman is going to have WR3 potential regardless.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Harry should have a good chance to play, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He received the second most targets in the passing game in Week 1 and probably will see a handful of targets this week. He can be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
