Patriots WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. He only got in 2 limited practices this week, so he figures to be operating at less than 100%. Agholor isn’t a recommended Week 1 fantasy starter.

Patriots WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s opener vs. the Dolphins. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday and limited again on Friday. If Agholor plays, he’ll be doing so at less than 100%. Avoid him in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Patriots WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. That comes after a limited workout on Wednesday. So he appears to be in real danger of missing this weekend's opener against the Dolphins. Agholor's absence would vault Kendrick Bourne into the #2 WR role behind #1 Jakobi Meyers.

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 WR Jakobi Meyers has been on the field for 93% of Cam Newton's snaps through 2 games (27 of 29). His 67 receiving yards rank 2nd on the team in preseason, trailing only reserve WR candidate Kristian Wilkerson (who has just 8 more yards on 5 more receptions). Meyers' top highlight has been a 28-yard catch-and-run TD against the Eagles in Week 2. Nelson Agholor sat out the preseason opener but returned for Thursday night's game. He played just 1 fewer snap than Meyers (15-14) but drew nary a target compared with 3 for Meyers. The 2nd-year wideout looks like a high-upside late-round pick for your fantasy football draft.

Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald this week led his list of potential "breakout" Patriots for 2021 with WR Jakobi Meyers. Callahan points to the "only" potential hurdles for Meyers being injury or "dominant summers from Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne," whom New England paid up for in free agency. "But those free-agent additions undoubtedly saw what everyone else did at OTAs and minicamp this spring: Meyers was the best receiver on the field," Callahan writes. We've certainly read other similar offseason buzz for Meyers, who claimed 28% of Patriots targets from Week 7 on last season. At WR68 in current FFPC best-ball drafting and a mid-13th round price on Underdog, Meyers at least looks worth some shots in your drafts. We'll see how things go for him and the rest of the Pats offense through training camp and preseason. Mac Jones taking over for Cam Newton at QB would also likely be good for Meyers' target volume.

NBC Sports' Tom Curran believes Jakobi Meyers will be the "most reliable and productive Patriots wideout in 2021." New England added Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne to the WR room this offseason, but Curran believes Meyers' understanding of the offense, route-running ability and reliable hands will give him the edge. It's a situation to track in training camp and preseason action, but Meyers is a nice target right now at his late ADP.

The Patriots signed WR Nelson Agholor to a 2-year, $26 million deal, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Agholor is coming off a solid 2020 in Vegas, posting a 48-896-8 line on 82 targets. He ranked 21st in yards per route run among 84 WRs with 50+ targets. That, of course, followed 5 mostly disappointing seasons in Philadelphia. It makes this a risky signing for New England -- but Agholor has a real chance to lead the team in targets in 2021.

Raiders WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so it's safe to say he won't be at 100% on Sunday. But the plus matchup vs. the Jets keeps him in play as a WR3 or flex.

Raiders WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We don't have any details on the ankle, but his availability for Sunday's game against the Jets appears to be in question. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (foot, ankle) is set to return for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. He’s not a fantasy option but might steal some snaps from WR Nelson Agholor.

The forecast for today's Raiders-Browns game calls for sustained winds of 25-30 mph with gusts around 45 mph. If that holds, it'll be 1 of the windier games in recent memory. It'll definitely impact the deep passing and kicking games. We've scaled back our passing projections for both teams and would avoid both kickers in this game. We could see heavy doses of RBs Josh Jacobs and Kareem Hunt today.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee, hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. He’s been battling the knee since Week 1; the hamstring issue is new. Ruggs’ absence will free up some extra targets for Darren Waller, Bryan Edwards, Hunter Renfrow and Nelson Agholor.

The Raiders have agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Nelson Agholor, according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune. Agholor played outside and inside with the Eagles but is probably best suited for the slot. That, however, became Hunter Renfrow's spot in 2019. In Oakland, Agholor would make more sense as competition for the outside role opposite Tyrell Williams. Of course, there's still room for the Raiders to add more to the position in free agency or the draft. We'll see how this group settles out. For now, Agholor isn't worth much attention in best-ball fantasy football drafts. The Raiders have also agreed to a deal to bring back reserve RB Rod Smith. He spent 3 games with the Raiders last season but didn't garner a touch.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is out for this weekend’s game against the Giants. Greg Ward will again be the best volume bet among Philly WRs after totaling 23 targets over the past 3 weeks.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. Greg Ward is the best target bet among Philly WRs in this one. TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert should continue to play big roles in the passing game.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is not expected to play today against the Cowboys, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That would keep WR Greg Ward as the primary slot guy, which has been a productive spot against Dallas.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. He didn’t practice all week and is a long shot to play. That’ll again leave Greg Ward as the best target bet among Philly WRs.
