Week 14 Free Agent Focus


Malcolm Mitchell, WR, Patriots

Blind-bid recommendation: 50-60%

Mitchell didn’t score in Sunday’s win over the Rams, but it might have been his most encouraging outing yet.

His 10 targets, 8 catches and 82 yards all ranked 2nd on the team behind only Julian Edelman. Mitchell’s role is growing on a weekly basis.

The situation helps Mitchell to look better in spite of matchups, but weeks 14 and 16 look like spots that could further favor the pass. The Ravens and Jets – visiting Foxboro in both cases – figure to make rushing tough. A Week 15 trip to Denver, on the other hand, doesn’t look good for using this rookie wideout.

Mitchell remains available in 82% of ESPN leagues.
