Most Recent Shark Bites

Patriots WR Nelson Agholor (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bills. WR Kendrick Bourne remains on the COVID list and is unlikely to play this weekend. WR N'Keal Harry (hip) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. He figures to start if he's able to play on Sunday. But WR Jakobi Meyers and TE Hunter Henry will likely be the focal points of New England's passing game.

11:33am EST 11/28/21

Patriots TE Hunter Henry (neck) is active for today’s game vs. the Titans. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, but we’ve heard nothing to suggest that the neck will be an issue today. Henry remains a TD-reliant fantasy play.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry (neck) is expected to play vs. the Titans today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Henry is listed as questionable but never seemed in danger of missing this one. He remains a TD-dependent fantasy play.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry (neck) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Titans. We've heard no reason to believe that Henry is in danger of missing this one, but check back around 11:30 am ET on Sunday to make sure he's active.

6:58pm EST 11/18/21

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is active for tonight's game vs. the Falcons. He's not a fantasy option but does put a small dent in TE Hunter Henry's profile.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons. He's not a fantasy option, but his absence would be a boost for TE Hunter Henry.

11:33am EST 11/14/21

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is inactive for today's game vs. the Browns. Hopefully you weren't planning on using him. Smith's absence could mean an extra target or 2 for TE Hunter Henry.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers. Smith shouldn’t be in your Week 8 fantasy plans, but his absence would be a boost to TE Hunter Henry.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jets. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited in the final 2 practices of the week. Smith ran a route on just 45% of pass plays in the opener, so he was a shaky fantasy play even before this injury. TE Hunter Henry’s Week 2 projection will get a big boost if Smith is out.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He missed all 3 preseason games with a shoulder injury but is ready to go for Sunday's opener vs. the Dolphins. Henry has TE1 potential this season but should be considered a TE2 in his New England debut.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry expects to play in Sunday's opener against the Dolphins. The big free-agent acquisition missed about 2 weeks of practice -- and all 3 preseason games -- with a shoulder injury. That makes him tough to trust in Week 1 fantasy lineups. But we'll keep a close eye on his usage in what figures to be a TE-centric offense.

The Patriots have surprisingly released QB Cam Newton, according to multiple reports. We wouldn't have been shocked to see the team name Mac Jones its Week 1 starter, but we certainly did not foresee New England unloading Newton completely. Jones graded out among the top passers across the league in preseason, according to Pro Football Focus. His ascension should be good news for the fantasy outlooks for basically everyone in the New England offense. It signals a more traditional scheme as opposed to last year's run-heavy approach. It returns lead status near the goal line to Damien Harris and the RBs. And it should mean more -- and more accurate -- targets for all pass-catchers. We're not overly interested in Jones as a fantasy football prospect, but Jakobi Meyers, Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor and James White all gain some late-round appeal. RB Damien Harris also gets a bump. Check out the updated projections for the Patriots.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry (shoulder) was on the field for Tuesday's practice. Per NESN's Zack Cox, Henry didn't participate in team drills. So he's still not a full-go but is clearly making progress in his return from that shoulder injury. Henry should be ready for Week 1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots TE Hunter Henry is expected to miss "a couple of weeks" with his shoulder injury. Schefter adds, though, that it's "not serious." We'll see whether any more info comes out on the injury itself. But it's the Patriots, so don't hold your breath. Henry's absence can only help the opportunity for TE Jonnu Smith.

Patriots TE Hunter Henry suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. The injury isn't believed to be serious, but more will be known after Henry gets an MRI. "The injury is painful and Henry could miss time in the preseason," Reiss adds. We'll keep you updated on Henry's status.

According to Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald, Patriots TE Jonnu Smith is “on the short list of top-performing Patriots through 10 days of training camp.” Smith has bought into a versatile role with the Pats. “I’m just excited to be able to use my ability to its fullest potential. Even touch some areas where maybe I do some things I’ve never done before,” he said. "Kind of scratch the surface here and see what lies beneath.” Smith’s ability to play multiple spots makes the addition of Hunter Henry less worrisome. The former Titan is currently being drafted at a very fair TE15 in FFPC best balls.

After signing TE Jonnu Smith, WR Nelson Agholor and WR Kendrick Bourne on the 1st day of free agency, the Patriots kicked off Day 2 by inking TE Hunter Henry to a 3-year, $37.5 million deal with $25 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Henry's $12.5 million average annual salary is identical to Jonnu Smith's -- although Smith got a 4-year deal. New England suddenly has the league's top TE tandem after trotting out a completely unforgettable group last year. The easy comparison here will be to Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, who were both top 14 PPR TEs in 2010 and top 3 in 2011. That, of course, came with Tom Brady slinging the rock. Last year's Patriots ranked 31st in pass rate, 31st in pass attempts and 30th in pass yards. HC Bill Belichick is clearly gearing up to chuck it more in 2021, but it's tough to imagine there being enough to go around for both Henry and Smith to post TE1 numbers.

The Chargers have informed TE Hunter Henry that they won't be using the franchise tag on him, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That means Henry will hit the open market later this month. It also leaves Donald Parham as the apparent lead TE for the moment. Parham is a 6'8, 240-pounder with above-average athleticism. He delivered a 99th-percentile dominator rating in college and won't turn 24 until August. Parham contributed just 10 catches last season after arriving from the XFL but presents intriguing upside vs. a current ADP that places him outside the top 40 TEs in best-ball drafting. We'll see where Henry lands in what should be a loaded TE market.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry (COVID) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Chiefs. TE Donald Parham ran a route on 72% of pass plays last week, catching 2 of 3 targets for 47 yards. He’s an intriguing Week 17 flier.
